Sometime I wish to have a mobile encyclopedia walking beside me wherever I go. Currently because I subscribe to mobile internet broadband, that wish is temporarily abandoned because I can open wikipedia directly from Opera Mobile Browser or by visiting wapedia.com http://wapedia.mobi which is mobile friendly. And guess what, one guy just make it for me and you.

It is designed to run under Symbian 60 and should be working to Symbian UIQ, then your Nokia, Samsung, and Sony Ericsson mobile phone can have this ‘small’ application.

You can read the installation instruction and file download at his site.

  • Approximately 2050 full-length articles, and over 3.5 million words (equivalent to a 4,000+ page book in text alone)
  • Storage Card & Phone Memory Compatibility
  • Keyword Search
  • Adjustable font sizes and styles
  • Cross Reference Links – tap on a link to easily go to the related article
  • An easy-to-use alphabetical index for all articles
  • Compatibility with ALL S60 devices, from the Nokia 7650 to the N95

Shake Your MacBook

LiquidMacI know that MacBook Pro has shock sensor installed in the laptop, but just got stunned that my MacBook has it too (maybe I haven’t learned all the features so far). This morning I found an small application that can detect and simulate MacBook orientation. LiquidMac is a freeware which requires you to have a MacBook, MacBook Pro or latest PowerBook, and of course Mac OS X 10.4.

After downloading it (it is just 98K), I just launched the application.  Then by gently tilt the MacBook the liquid animation will react as if I tilt a jug of water. There are some parameters to set to get different effect, but the default should be stunning enough.
