Pixar Up movie starting in Austria

On 9/17 the newest movie from Pixar, Up, starts in Austrian cinemas in a 3D and a standard version. In addition to the original English version there is a special Austrian synchronisation with Otto Schenk titled "Oben". BTW: the opening sequence of Ellie and Carl spending their life together is one of the most moving scenes, I have ever seen in a movie. The art of making movies can´t get any better than this. Must be seen!

Another great design idea from Yanko Design: the PowerBridge eliminates the need to hide wires in order to make the room look neat or safe. This sturdy strip has the plug-slots beneath the bridge for better plug management. An indicative light on each plug outlet also displays the amount of power being used by that particular device, making you aware of the energy consumption. A refreshing approach for the wires-issue by designer Hyukjae Chang.

problem with repeating events (and birthdays) on iPhone

There is a problem with repeating events (and therefore birthdays) on the iPhone. The Calendar app on the iPhone right now supports a maximum of 75 repeats. If a birthday starts in 1934 it repeats 75 times until 2009 and not any further. So in 2009 all birthdays before 1934 are not shown. Next year, if Apple doesn´t fix this bug, all birthdays before 1935 will not be shown.

Install MacOSX 10.6 from a USB stick

Great hint from Maciverse: Install MacOSX 10.6 from a USB stick. BTW: if you name the USB stick the same as the DVD (Mac OS X Install DVD), you should not get any error messages from using the USB flash drive instead of the DVD.
