You Should Buy Some Bitcoin Now

 The reality is as follows...

Bitcoin will without a shadow of a doubt at very least enjoy another surge when consumer-friendly applications that support Bitcoin hit a tipping point where ease-of-purchase, ease-of-use and breadth-of-acceptance all hit a sufficient level. Those levels will be reached. Most likely next year (2015). Probably in the Summer (July).

So now is a great time to buy some Bitcoin. It's cheap, there are plenty of apps now that make it easy to spend and accept (e.g. if you run a small shop, or even just sell things at school).
Bitonic.nl is a Dutch website that has been selling Bitcoin for ages. It always offers an incredibly generous exchange rate, even better than other major sellers like Coinbase.
Forget Bitcoin exchanges, these really are a waste of time for consumers like you and me. 
If you buy on Bitonic via this link, I even get a tiny bit of commission :))
If you don't have a Dutch bank account, then try Circle.com or Coinbase.com

So go on, go for it! You don't need to buy a whole 1 Bitcoin. You can just buy 0.5 or 0.1 Bitcoin if you want!

If you don't know how to get a Bitcoin "wallet" then you don't need to look any further than Blockchain.info
Blockchain.info is one of the most trusted websites in the Bitcoin world as has been around since the early days of Bitcoin.
They now have excellent iPhone and Android apps. Just install the app, sign up for an account and you will get a wallet with a so-called "wallet address". 
Just enter your wallet address when you buy your Bitcoin on Bitonic.nl and within a few minutes your Bitcoin will be transferred to your Blockchain account (and you will see it in the app).
There you go, ready to spend that Bitcoin! or wait and watch the fun when the price creeps back up :))

Enjoy!

AppInfo Lists Tweaks by Install Date

Photo: pic     Photo

The AppInfo iPhone tweak is unmissable on a jailbroken iPhone, giving you access to all sorts of information:
  • A list of your apps from the Apple AppStore
  • A list of Cydia tweaks and repositories
  • Springboard tweaks
  • iPod music
Most of which can be exported as a simple or detailed list that you can email (to yourself).

Extra noteworthy is that the lists of AppStore apps and Cydia tweaks can be sorted:
  • Alphabetically
  • Size
  • Date Installed
Install Date helps you remember which apps or tweaks you installed most recently. Can be very useful, for example to help you identify sudden problems you may experience with newly installed apps or tweaks, like sudden increased battery drain, poor performance, or crashes.

This Cydia tweak can be found in the BigBoss repository, usually shipped by default in Cydia.

Hope you found this useful!

If so, and you're feeling generous, please tip some Bitcoin above left, cheers!

Send iPhone photos to PC Instantly


This is a pretty random post, but it may just stick at the back of your head and save you a minute or two.

How do you get a photo or pic (e.g. a screen capture) from your iPhone to your laptop/desktop PC very quickly?

I usually email it. But today I couldn't be bothered to wait that long. First, the Gmail progress bar always annoys me, then I can't copy paste the image straight out of Gmail.

Alternative? Facebook. Share the image directly from your iPhone's camera roll or photo stream to Facebook - make it PRIVATE if you want by selecting "Only Me" under Audience.

Then navigate to facebook.com, hit your profile and right-click to copy the photo/pic.

This took me a matter of seconds. Simple, trivial, but very satisfying!
