De/Fault Case.

What a pile of donkey shit. A while back (and currently still going on) the guys at Default Case had an AMAZING sale on iPhone cases and since I needed one, I ordered a case immediately. Now, I wasn’t expecting anything overly fantastic because it was a very good sale, almost unbelievable… until I received the product.

As I opened the jiffy bag with excitement, I pulled out the black iPhone case ready to clip on my phone. I pull it out, check there’s no debris on the inside before I clip it on – but I see a little white spec; probably just a bit of the packaging, no worries, I’ll just blow it off… looks stuck so I gently try to rub it off.

Now, this is where I went wrong. That spec was actually the bare plastic, as I found out, after my gentle rub removed more flaky paint and then leading on to a gentle (and I really do mean gentle) scratch revealed more and more of the base plastic. Apparently, these cases are purely ornamental as using them day to day will leave a load of coloured crap wherever there is a slight bit of friction. A table, your pocket, in your hand. It’s quite frankly disgraceful, especially since there was a hand signed quality control check document which accompanied the order information and product. If you insist on getting one, make sure it’s the white one and hope it hasn’t been painted. $35? I’d lose my shit if I paid $35.

Nevertheless, to be fair to the people at Default Case, they have got a good record of customer service, although for the price, it’s really not worth chasing it up unfortunately.

ZombieSmash iPhone Review

ZombieSmash is one of the best games I have on my iPhone. The game itself supports Crystal so if you play for awards and want to be part of a community not too dissimilar to what the PS3 and XBox have going on, it’s pretty cool.

The game starts off and you’re a loner stuck in a house in the middle of a field and you have to survive waves of zombies for 31 days (levels). I started playing after reading a couple of reviews saying how good it was, and I wasn’t overly impressed until I got a few levels in, because that’s where the intensity builds up and you really get into the game, unlocking new weapons and new zombies. A nice little touch at the end of each level is the “Finish ’em” camera where everything goes in slow motion and you can literally rip off their limbs and capture the torture to keep in your photo album.


The WordPress iPhone App

This is just a test post to see how the WordPress iPhone app measures up. I’m going to upload a photo to see if I can place it in different positions or whether it just puts it on the end… Either way, this is just jobber jabber to fill the post so there is no actual relevance to carry on reading any of this. Now for a Bull made out of jelly beans!


Tilt Shift iPhone Photography

“Tilt-Shift miniature faking is a creative technique whereby a photograph of a life-size location or object is manipulated to give an optical illusion of a photograph of a miniature scale model.”

With that in mind, I took the techniques used in Photoshop and applied them to some photos I took on my trusty iPhone.

Attempt number 1
Attempt 2 - the better one.
