Internet Tethering bei iOS 4 und iPhone 3G mit Bob

June 30th, 2010 by Speedy 20 comments »

Gerade iOS4 auf mein iPhone 3G gespielt und abgesehen davon dass das Gerät jetzt so gut wie nicht mehr zu bedienen ist (sehr langsam) hat sich auch der Tethering Button verabschiedet.

Da ich ein unlocked iPhone aus Italien besitze bin ich vor einigen Wochen von A1 auf umgestiegen und spare nicht nur bares Geld sondern bin auch noch sehr zufrieden damit. Vor allem weil ich jetzt auch noch zusätzlich eine wirklich faire Datenoption habe. (Telefonieren tu ich ja sowieso nicht mehr, wenn dann mache ich einen Skype Anruf)

Bob Tarif im Kurzüberblick

4 Cent in alle Netze
4 Cent pro SMS
4 Euro pro angefangenem GB

Da gibt es ja nichts mehr auszusetzen. Jetzt möchte man jedoch auch noch Internet an seinem Notebook und da hilf einem die Tethering Funktion des iPhones weiter.

Über Bluetooth oder über USB kann man die Internetverbindung des iPhones an das Notebook weiterleiten.

Dazu muss man in den Einstellungen > Allgemein > Netzwerk > Mobiles Datennetzwerk folgende Daten hinterlegen:

Mobile Daten

  • APN:
  • Benutzername:
  • Kennwort: ppp

Gizmodo and Engadget published the date of introduction of the iPhone OS 4.0 – It’s April 8 (Thursday)
It’s amazing that Apple will release the new OS so close to the iPad launch.

The message from Apple:

engadget Germany announces the release of the iPhone HD at June 22. At this date the iPhone 3Gs would have its first birthday 😉

If that is true or what will come – We will hear it at thursday.

Hi Guys!

In January an article on Hacked Gadgets showed a Mikrokopter from Nicoleto.
After visiting his homepage I saw a really nice concept for the HD camera mount.

Apple finally released the iPad!

January 27th, 2010 by Speedy 2 comments »

And – it’s like a biiiig iPod.

(Picture source Jim Wilson – New York Times)

Here are some pictures and facts

  • OS is based on iPhone OS
  • All iPhone apps will also run on the iPad – “virtually unmodified”
    The iPhone apps can run in a black box in the middle of the screen or by doubling the pixels and fill the screen, but loose resolution
  • The new SDK for the iPad is released today
  • Of course, apps from the iPhone can be modified so they are perfect for the iPad
  • Almost “life-size” virtual keyboard
  • Synchronize data from PC or MAC
  • The iPad works in both landscape and portrait mode, like the iPhone. It has a virtual keyboard, access to photo collections, direct access to iTunes’ surfeit of content.
  • The new iBooks app will allow you to read an purchase eBooks. So Apple is on a collision course with Amazon.

SpeedyWeb goes mobile

November 8th, 2009 by Speedy No comments »

Hi guys.

Today I had a security problem with my WordPress Blog. A funny guy thought that he has to reset my WordPress installation.
But no problem – the last backup was loaded within minutes and the Blog was online again.

Good news for all iPhone, Android and smartphone users! – Today SpeedyWeb got an update and is now available over iPhone and other smartphones in a “compact” mobile theme. I hope you enjoy that.

Here is a screenshot of the Page on iPhone / mobile Safari

Finally I was paragliding this summer…

October 5th, 2009 by Speedy No comments »

This summer I was paragliding at the Hochjoch (Montafon, Vorarlberg, Austria). It was a very exciting experience. If I had enough time in the moment I would start this Sport immediately. To log the flight I used my iPhone which I had in my pocket. I was surprised that the logged data was so good. (see map below)

Exploring WiFly RN-131 GSX Embedded WiFi Module

October 3rd, 2009 by Speedy 5 comments »

I made the next step in the direction of WiFi. Some days ago I surfed the Internet for an embedded WiFi module for less money. And finally I found the WiFly GSX modules from Roving Networks. Their slogan is “Wireless for less” 😉

So I ordered some evaluation boards (about 100€/pcs) for me and two collegues who are studying with me at the NTB. Our goal is to have fun with wireless applications.

The RN-131 GSX Module is a 802.11 b/g wireless LAN Module with a lot of features – Details see datasheet.

If you already have a GSX Module you can use my LabView source below to show the UDP packets which the module sends in default configuration every 7 seconds.

The packets include

  • MAC address of AP
  • WiFi-Channel
  • RSSI (quality)
  • local TCP port
  • RTC (real time clock value)
  • NTC temperature option (if temperature sensor connected to module – otherwise sensor 7)
  • Spare sensor reading
  • ASCII time
  • Version string with date code and Device ID string

This information can be used to open a TCP connection to the module or to configure it over WiFi. The module has to be in the same subnet as your PC or MAC if you want to receive the packages.

Here are some pictures of the Module in action:

Get in touch with JAVA, TCP/IP, Mac OS X, iPhone and Objective C programming

September 23rd, 2009 by Speedy No comments »

Hi Guys!

In the last weeks I thought about new projects (beside the Mikrokopter project). So I started to study Objective-C programming by myself to be able to code iPhone applications in future. A good start for doing that is the book “Cocoa Programming For Mac OS X” by Aaron Hillegass.
A good podcast to start with Objective-C from the real basics is also this one from Peter and Ingo:
Another good resource that I am using is the Stanford iPhone programming course, which is available over iTunes U and resources to the course are here:

Because the SPP Bluetooth profile is currently not supported by the iPhone (OS 3.1), data transfer has to be done over TCP/IP or some other “frickel-ware” tricks (Audio, Display and Camera, other BT-profiles, …).

3rd Outdoorflying in Zürich (13.06.2009)

June 18th, 2009 by Speedy 5 comments »

Hi MK-friends!

I attended the 3rd outdoorflying in Zürich and it was a lot of fun. Of course I had my digital video camera with me and now you can watch the whole day in a short 9 minute clip. Of course there are some scenes with the EPI-OSD hardware with the new C-OSD software from Cascade. A short clip with EPI-S (current measurement) is also included. It was really fun to meet some guys from the forum and to have “real” talks. And of course we had some sausages over the fire 😉 (The fire was heated by Mikrokopter(s))

To improve my Kopter for this event I finally found the time to mount the PET “Haube” onto the Kopter. Pictures will follow in the next days.
