This is great news for iphone owners who frequently travel overseas:
engadget: iPhone unlocked: AT&T loses iPhone exclusivity
Thanks to the iphonesimfree team, the six-man team which has been working non-stop since launch day to be the first to break Apple's SIM locks on the iPhone with software.
According to the 9-page suit, which was filed Monday in a New York Supreme Court, Kliegerman traveled to Mexico a few weeks after purchasing the phone, where he proceeded to check e-mails and make calls, blissfully unaware (or so the suit tells us) that AT&T would be charging international roaming fees for the usage. Apparently, when Mr. Kliegerman received his bill, he was shocked to discover $2,000 in the aforementioned fees. The suit argues that if he had been allowed to unlock the phone and use a foreign SIM card, the costs could have been avoided.
As a result, Mr. Kliegerman is seeking a judgement which bars Apple from selling locked iPhones, plus an order for the company to offer unlock codes to all current owners.

Under the aegis of the Sprout Fund's Public Art program, 31 gorgeously colourful murals have been dotted on walls and structures throughout the Allegheny County since 2003. They can even be found tucked away in neighbourhood gardens and around pokey little corners. Already there's likely a Sprout Fund mural near where you live, work or commute. Nothing gives me more of a sense of happiness or feeling of belonging in my new home community than these murals.
The artists who create these public artworks have not only succeeded in completing a mammoth painting job that represents all the people who live there, but they have the whole community backing them. A huge amount of commitment on the comminity's part is required. Once they put the application in to the Sprout Fund they commit to 4-5 months of meetings before the mural is even started. The community is also polled on the type of art they feel represents their neighbourhood and then the best artist is matched to the community.
But all that commitment pays off. The community receives a grant - not money, but a mural that revitalises the area.
More murals and other public artworks are in the pipeline. The application process for community groups and artists begins early next year.

Oh my gosh Oh my gosh! The excruciating excitement I felt when I saw this picture and thought for a second I could buy one again!!!
The exact same watch my dad got me as a kid - I've tried to describe it to friends countless times and somehow felt like I never did it justice because no-one seemed that impressed. Well be impressed! I had a red one, Kenna the blue.
... my heart's still pounding...
To celebrate the epic new Transformers Movie that is being released later this week and with a little help from mutual studio Transformers fans take a look at this mega 80's transforming watch. The robot detaches and if almost by magic transforms into a free standing robot. You can buy newer versions of this watch now but not a patch on the retro version.
