Grove Bamboo Case for iPhone 4 finally arrived

Grove Bamboo iPhone 4 case

It really took a long time to order this all the way from the US to Sydney, Australia.

The postage didn’t take long, while the placement of the order did. Maybe it was because they only make a case once an order is made…

If only Apple can make some netbook as nice as this.

Pianoteq 3 (for Mac) preset for Mozart?

PiaonoTeq 3 for Mac

Youtube Clip in Youtube site

Pianoteq 3 (ver3.0.2 for Mac) is perhaps the best physical modelled virtual piano. (The other famous physical modelled piano is maybe Truepianos). Check pianoteq site for the advantages of physical modelled virtual piano over sample based piano, like Ivory Piano, Akoustik Piano, Quantum Piano, VSL Pianos, Garritan Steinway, etc. Many people who are mostly in favor of Ivory Piano always think Pianoteq is just some cheap crap, despite that: a. They cannot actually hear the difference as they claimed; b. Pianoteq is actually more expensive in pricing.

The youtube clip shows I tested a few tweaked presets, which I think sound a little bit better for Mozart.

Here is the preset file and the mp3 file based on ‘my bright 2’ preset.

iSkin for Mac

Apple new MacBook and MacBook Pro Aluminum was here in Sydney City Apple Store yesterday afternoon. This morning I went to have a look (to avoid yesterday’s crowd). I was trying to see the illuminated keyboard in tge 2.4G MacBook, but the ambient is too bright. I am fully aware of the build quality of the new MacBook and the reliability/durability due to the ‘making out of a single piece of Aluminum thing. But I cannot entirely concur that aesthetically it is better designed than the former white MacBook. The 5th image is inside a Sydney City Bus. You cannot drive to the Apple City Sydney Store, no parking in the city.

The 6th image in the iSkin I used for the white MacBook’s keyboard. It can be used on the Aluminum Apple Wireless Keyboard, but not very convenient when you do typing. Therefore I found another solution. As you can see, a Zip lock bag can do the dust protection not only ‘just fine’, but much much better… And it’s as cheap as dirt.

This is my first 3D model in Mac, dated back to 1995. I think it was done on Strata Pro 3D for Mac.
