Cycorder Video Repair Service

September 22, 2010

If you’ve ever used Cycorder and got a call during a video you know how annoying it is when you go to the video and it won’t play. No matter how hard you try it won’t play back. Some people simply give up, others pay quite a lot of money to a repair company.

I’ve done quite a few videos now and my service has been fully tested and worked 100% of the time. So if you have coruppted cycorder videos you want fixed or know someone who does I will get them fixed and back to you within less than 1 hour after payment in most cases.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Upload the video to WeTransfer (Up to 2GB)
  2. Send the file to sbraidley [at] yahoo.co.uk
  3. I will then download and fix the file and email you with a quote of price and a screenshot of the video for proof if requested.
  4. Send the payment via PayPal and once payment is received I will immediately upload the file back to WeTransfer for you to download.
  5. You now have your fixed video.

At the minute I’m charging a flat fee of $25 per GB. The video can be any length and sound is also processed with the video unlike some other services. I can also promise that you file will never been seen by anyone but you, videos are checked that the process has worked but this does not require the video to be played.

If you can spread the word on this service it would be helpful as I haven’t set up a website yet for my projects.


Game Center Now Live On iOS 4.1, Sans iPhone 3G

September 8, 2010

So today when Apple released iOS 4.1 everyone thought that it’d bring the new social gaming platform, Game Center to all recent devices except the iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G. Turns out that Apple is supporting the second generation iPod Touch but still not the iPhone 3G. Not quite sure as to the reasoning, except to make money but I don’t think Game Center requires recent hardware as it’s just a social gaming platform.


iPod Nano Code Hints At Video Playback

September 8, 2010

It might not mean that we will get video playback on the new 6th generation iPod Nano but this code hints towards it. It was discovered by Erica Sadun from TUAW, Even if it doesn’t turn out that video support is turned on at some point it might be nice for the device to be able to playback video, even if it is on such a small screen.

Apple has pushed out the iOS 4.1 update as promised, if your running a iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 2G, iPod Touch 3G or iPod Touch 4G then the update is available for free to you now. It’s not a huge update but it fixes the iPhone 3G performance issues, Game Center is now activated and proximity sensor and bluetooth issues have been fixed for the iPhone 4.

As usual, if your a jailbreak user, or someone who relys on a hacked unlock then do not update yet until the iPhone Dev-Team give the go ahead. Make sure to backup your SHSH blobs whilst you still have the chance as well.

Earlier today this screenshot was captured of the Apple UK website, stating that iOS 4.1 will arrive on the 8th September, it has now reverted back to the Coming Soon message that we find on the US website. This likely means that it’s also the day when the new iPods are released seeing as the touch uses iOS 4.1.

Apple Claims 50% of Portable Gaming Market

September 1, 2010

Steve Jobs announced today that the iPod Touch alone outsells the Nintendo DS and Sony PSP combined, not just in America but worldwide. Jobs said that 1.5 billion games and entertainment apps have been downloaded from the App Store. This fact only takes into consideration the iPod Touch and not the iPhone which would make it an even bigger market lead.

There have been some concerned comments questioning the fact seeing as only 120 million iOS devices have been sold worldwide. Apple have been contacted about this discrepancy.
