Futurama new seasons !

In News on 24/06/2010 at 12:11 PM

Today is truly epic day for me 🙂 Australia has new minister, my exam is over, my favourite show: Futurama is back on the air and a party will be started next 2 hours 🙂

For those of you who did not know about Futurama, it is comedy animation shows created by Matt Groening. Futurama is essentially a workplace sitcom, the plot of which revolves around the Planet Express interplanetary delivery company and its employees, a small group that largely fails to conform to future society.Episodes usually feature the central trio of Fry, Leela, and Bender, though storylines centered on the other main characters are common (Copied from Wikipedia)

I liked Futurama over Family Guy and American Dad because of its “inside” and clever jokes. Besides this future sets and all of the crazy technology attract me more than normal, “in your face” life situation. Big thanks to Comedy Central 🙂 and Torrents as well 😉 (They already have had 2 episodes)

Lets me introduce you to some of main characters in the show and my favourite Bender with his catch phase: “Bite my shinny metal ass”

Australia’s new prime minister: Julia Gillard

In News on 24/06/2010 at 10:53 AM

As a person who has poor understanding about politics, i was surprised when Nova 100.3 announced the new Australia prime minister: Julia Gillard. Apparently, she is the first female prime minister in Australia. Congratulation on her success 🙂


You can read more information about these new events at:

As for the man: Kevin Rudd, he looked so lonely and hopeless in Ray Strange’s picture (Source: The Australian). Cheers up, mate ! If Julia Gillard is the first female prime minister, you can be the first Australia prime minister who trully applied woman equity 🙂

How to enable iPhone 3g tethering with TPG network

In Apple device on 16/06/2010 at 1:24 AM


Ok so you are one of the people who finally join TPG for their attractive mobile plan ?

Me too 🙂 I signed up for TPG Premium 50$ for 1000$ cap value and 500Mb per month. The only downsize is TPG does not support internet tethering ! So i use Google to find a way around to enable tether with TPG and here are some information i collected (mostly from Whirlpool). Those are only for referencing, please refer to TPG staffs for all your enquiries !

  • Tethering is the use of a mobile device such as a mobile phone to supply Internet access for another device which is otherwise unconnected, using the mobile device as amodem. This can be done through Bluetooth wireless technology or cables (such as USB). Please go to Wikipedia for more information.
  • The DATA is included in CAP plan. It means that if you use up your 500mb data, every excess kb data will be deduced from your 1000$ CAP value and if 1000$ are used up as well, prepare to meet your biggest mobile phone bill 🙂
  • The reason why TPG does not support tethering is because TPG used Optus line and Optus restricted tethering. That is why when you enable tethering, iPhone will display the message: “Please contact Optus for…” And if you do contact Optus, they will explain that you need to pay them $/month to be able to use Tethering 😦

How to do it ?

  1. Go to with your iPhone’s Safari
  2. Scroll down and select Tethering. Read Disclaimer first !
  3. Select your country
  4. Select your provider (mine is Optus)
  5. You can choose to install benm’s webclip or turn off
  6. Press Download and then choose Install profile

Web clip is the new feature of your Safari (same as bookmarks) . It will automatic create a new icon (in your home screen) based on your requested website. In this case, it will link to Benm’s website. For more information about how to create your own webclip, you can visit Ziphone.

That is all ! Now you can Enable Internet Tethering 🙂

Use it at your own risk :))

Blocked iPhone’s IMEI ? Not a problem :(

In Apple device on 11/06/2010 at 3:10 PM


As ex-iPhone owner and lost , i felt completely satisfy when service staff explained about blocked IMEI option. Ok so even i lost my iPhone, that bastard who stole my phone can only use it as an iPod Touch :)) and judge from iPhone community, there will be no ways to fix that wonderful protection ! An IMEI blocked iPhone will be useless in Australia for at least 2 years. YES !


In case you don’t know about IMEI, please visit FAQAMTA website for more information. Here are some common answers i copied from them:

  • What is an IMEI number?

The International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number is an international identity number used to uniquely identify a mobile phone. The 15-digit IMEI number is an electronic fingerprint transmitted every time a phone is used, which reveals the identity of the mobile handset. They are independent of phone numbers and are usually stamped beneath the battery on the back of the handset

  • How can I find out my IMEI number?

Mobile phone users can also check their 15 digit IMEI number by dialling *#06# on their mobile handset

  • Where can I check the status of my handset to confirm whether it is blocked or unblocked?

You can check the status of your handset by going to the AMTA website for lost and stolen IMEI status queries


The truth is these iPhones can still be used on everyday basic ! Why ? Because i once had a blocked iphone with full functions: calling, messaging…I bought it from eBay as a broken iPhone and intended to fix its smashed screen. After 2 hours  replacing its screen and hours restore, switch to DFU mode (Big thanks to my friend ‘s help), i got it worked :-). Eager to try out the new phone, i took my friend sim, plugged it in and voila normal calls and messages. I was so happy that i could fly up in the air 🙂 I got a bargain !

Soon my friend made me drop to the ground by checking its IMEI. “Your phone was currently blocked by…” WTF ? Why it still could call and message ? Thinking it took some time for mobile phone service to kick in, i leave it there for 2 hours. When i got my hand on the phone again, it still functioned normally 😦 However, when i restart it, the magic disappear 🙂 I spent my next day to experiment and figure it out that: The only reason why BLOCKED iPhone WORKED is i had used some kind of “sim-swapping” method when i quickly swap sim from normal working iPhone to my phone. As long as the signal did not run out or the iPhone did not suddenly restart, Blocked iPhone can be used normally. And i thought i could laugh at the one who stole my phone 😦


Luckily, the guy who sold the iPhone agreed to refund but now i got extra iPhone screen as a paper weight 😦  It seems that with every lock is created, there are always keys to unlock ! And with this simple trick i found, i can image underground market might have some kinds of “Unblocked device for iPhone” already 😦

For example a quick swapping sim slot that piggy back iPhone back case. When iPhone is blocked, you can simply switch on the device, pull out your sim, put it into swapping sim slot, wait for the green light then put it back and there you go ! 30 seconds at most. And to think that Apple iPhone is the most security smart phone 😦
