[iphone/itouch] iPhone bike mount

August 14th, 2010 | Category: News

neat
This is really neat, A DIY bike mount for your iphone. I will be sure to work on making on of these myself, probably 2 of them, one for my Standard Pedal bike and another for my dirt bike. Now I would probably never take my iPhone on my dirt bike, but I just want to see how well it looks. I’ll be sure an post some results and probably make some modifications.
The original story is from one of my favorite blogs, Gizmodo.
So check ’em out at the original story page:http://gizmodo.com/5610361/the-free-iphone-motorcycle-mount?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+gizmodo%2Ffull+%28Gizmodo%29&utm_content=Google+Reader

[iPhone] FaceTime over 3G

August 11th, 2010 | Category: News

So while looking through my many RSS for some cool mods to look at I found this interesting article that shows me something I need to try, its called My3G. It’s an app only available to people who jailbreak their iphones and can be used to do things that your phone will refuse to do on 3G, such as FaceTime if you have an iphone 4, it also does tethering which is what I am really interested in. We already saw Trackers post about his internet comparison so I want to do one myself. I will be sure to post my results! But in the mean time check out this air compressor guide by PAN.

[Research Project #1] vpn’s

July 30th, 2010 | Category: News

downloading
So surfing on the internet is awesome right? Well of course! But lets just say you got “disconnected” from a website for a certain manner of behavior. Or maybe you live outside of the United States and want to watch our wonderful (soon to be ruined by subscription) Hulu! Well fret not, I am in the process of finding different ways of achieving this goal.

At the same time in this post I am introducing something else, Research Projects, I have about a billion of them, but now I’m going to put them on the net! Also I am going to make a thread in our forums so that they start to get some use! I haven’t figured out if I am going to make my own sub-forum just for it or if I’m going to put them in different sub-forums as classification, but I’m sure i’ll figure it out eventually. My usual way of research is to bookmark 10000 pages and then make a ton of text files with random information. Ironically I do the same for my college notes and research papers and often times I do really well in the classes and on the papers.

So there is this site called proXPN and it looks pretty legit, I found it using a reliable source and I hope to have a review about it soon. And also some other services and the like to do similar tasks. Like I said I have many, many, many projects. So expect a lot of these updates to be random and spur of the moment.

Lack of updates…..

April 06th, 2010 | Category: News

Ok so you may have noticed that over the past few months there has been a serious lack of updates on the site and the cause of that is simply put life. With all that’s going on I have not had the time to work on any of my sites.

That is why I need everyone’s help. The reason for not posting is that I don’t have time to come up with the content. So what I need you to do is go out and find all the best mods or create your own stuff. Send it into me via the contact us page and it may end up on the site. If you have your own blog post your mod there and send me the link. Its a good way for you to get your site noticed by others 😉

Hopefully I can come up with some new content soon.

A call for testing

February 20th, 2010 | Category: News

So I have started to get back into the grove of things and as such I will finally be able to make some mod videos for everyone. But first step, I need to get some tools tested so I know how to make the videos and get everything set and ready to go. Here is what I am currently testing:

Video Recorders:

1. Fraps

2.WeGames recorder

3.Taksi Video capture

4.ZDsoft Game recorder

5.CamStudio

6.Camtasia

7.GameCam

And for each I will be writing a review and making a demo video of some Counter-Strike: Source footage or Team Fortress 2 Footage. Yes I know I could just make Demo’s in both of these games but not all games support Demo record / Playback so seeing as I play a lot of these games I will test using them. If you have any other programs that I should test then please send me a email (zechtech@hotmail.com). I would be glad to do some testing for you. After I do the recording tests, then ill move to editor testing.

Have a great day and I look forward to getting some emails.

Sup guys, finally finished this tutorial. CS:S players enjoy.
Wait. What is this? It is a skin toggler. No its not a hack, it is more of a tool.
I find it very useful when going from pubs to scrims.
