iPhone Copy & Paste

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

Just read an article on Engadget that iPhone finally implements a copy & paste feature in the upcoming iPhone OS 3.0. It’s about freaking time. According to Engadget, there will be “grab points” where you highlight text to copy/cut and paste and to undo, you just shake it. They said it’s a very nifty implementation. It is really hard to tell from the description if it’s truly nifty. I hope they are right. I can imagine I will start seeing a lot of people shaking their iPhone vigorously in a bus or train.

Children Motrin

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

My son has fever again in the past week. We had to bring him to emergency room once when the Infant Tylenol failed to reduce his temperature. When we were at the hospital, the doctor administered Children Motrin to reduce his fever. It worked within an hour. Later we asked the doctor why his fever didn’t come down with Infant Tylenol. The doctor told us that some babies response better with Motrin than Tylenol. They gave us a Children Motrin dosage chart for babies less than a year old.

We know that there is another product called Infant Motrin. We asked the doctor about it as well. We were told both Infant and Children Motrin are basically the same drug but in different concentration. The dosage chart given to us already accounted for the concentration in Children Motrin. This is good to know because Infant Motrin costs twice as much as Children Motrin. I’m not going to post the dosage chart here because I’m not a medical professional. If you are currently using Infant Motrin for your baby, try asking your doctor for dosage information with Children Motrin to save yourself some money.


OCZ 60GB Solid State Drive Cheap

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

Amazon now has a sale on this drive now for $141.99 with free shipping and a $40 rebate which comes down to $101.99. This is a very good price for a SSD. Reviews are a little mixed though. Some people said the drive sometimes hangs for a couple second with heavy use. It’s a probably a firmware issue that can be fixed with upcoming updates. It’s actually not too bad if you put it in a laptop that’s mostly used for web browsing. The improved reliability (vs hard drive crashing) should outweighs the occasional glitches. General consensus is that this drive perform quite well compare to a regular hard disk. I’m very tempted to order this drive now before the sale and rebate is over. 🙂
