I have a long personal history with jailbreaking my iOS devices…

I had / have them all:

original iPhone iPad (64 GB WiFi)
iPhone 3G iPad 2 (64 GB WiFi)
iPhone 3GS iPad 3 (64 GB WiFi/3G)
iPhone 4
iPhone 4S
iPhone 5

Have fun checking out my list after the break…

World record panoramic photo of London

On this page, you can enjoy a gorgeous virtual round trip of London. Many great sightseeing points can be viewed with a unprecidented level of detail – all in one photo. There are certain “landmark points”, as well as a virtual tour.

The panoramic view was stiched together from 8000 photos and is 400.000 x 200.000 pixels in sizes. Try that with your usual digital camera!

A personal tip: also try to look down, more or less where you stand and you can see Londoners in their daily life:

Install Windows via USB Stick

It is quite easy to install one of the more modern Windows variants using a USB stick. You simply have to execute the following steps, using a USB stick of 4 GB or more.

1. Make the stick bootable

from a DOS prompt execute: diskpart
list disk
select disk 1 (assuming disk 1 was your thumb drive in the above list disk command)
clean
create partition primary
select partition 1
active
format fs=fat32
assign
exit

Now the stick is bootable.

2. Windows files

Copy the contents of your Windows image or DVD to the base level of the stick.

3. BIOS

Make sure that in your BIOS boot options, you have selected USB as primary boot option.

4. Booting

You will notice a significant boost in installation speed!! :-)
