Baby Vanessa Updates

Baby Vanessa is now coming to 6 months old. A lot of things have been happening in the last 2 weeks or so. Her tooth has started to pop out. She has started to perfect her flipping-over skill.

From iPhone to iBrick

Apple has apparently made good on their threat to disable hacked iPhones (BBC News). Their latest iPhone software update has rendered the hacked or unlocked handsets inoperable. Depending on which hack was applied, some handsets may still be operable if fitted with an original AT&T SIM card (San Jose Mercury News, Brisbane Times). Although Apple has publicly said that they…

[photopress:20070928450.jpg,thumb,pp_image]It turns out there are ear gels for the Jabra JX10 after all. I saw this blog post on Treonauts and decided I had to contact Jabra about the not-so-comfortable JX10 fit in my ear.

Rascal Wants Baby’s Food

[photopress:20070916268.jpg,thumb,pp_image]We have started Vanessa on some simple solids for some time now, including this biscuit you see in the photo which she enjoys (actually she seems to enjoy everything… lunging forward for my cup of cold water, licking off a piece of mooncake that was within her reach, etc). Our poor dogs have started to take notice that Vanessa’s getting…
