Samsung Galaxy SII now with over 50 hours of battery life
After updating my Samsung Galaxy SII to Jelly Bean a couple of weeks ago, Samsung pushed even newer firmware (I9100XWLSD) to my phone which is the best of all official Samsung ROM’s to date: with the update JuiceDefender was able to squeeze over 50 hours out of my Samsung Galaxy S II battery:
As Samsung also released Jelly Bean kernel sources, maybe the great Cyanogenmod-team can finally also push out a stable version of Cyanogenmod 10 for the SGSII?

WP YouTube Lyte 1.2.0: beta testers needed
Yesterday I pushed a beta version of the long overdue 1.2.0 to the SVN trunk at wordpress.org. This is the version at least some of you have been waiting for, as it includes the following new features:
- LYTE embeds are now fully responsive
- automatic inclusion of microdata
- better performance: even less requests (from 5 to 3), with one CSS sprite containing the player UI.
- updated to current YouTube look & feel, which results in something like this (Ultraïsta‘s Smalltalk in a Four Tet remix):
But don’t go running off to your WordPress admin screens just yet, there’s no update notification to be seen there. This is very much still work in progress: the microdata-stuff isn’t complete yet, I’ll probably load the CSS differently, I’m still not sure what widget sizes will be supported, the translations have to be updated, there’s some PHP notices to take care of … And most importantly: as this isn’t just another small, incremental release, we need lots of testing.
So I’m looking for people who want to join in on the fun and test the in-development version on their blogs. To do so, download the zip-file from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/wp-youtube-lyte.zip and (optionally) drop me a line so I know who I have to ping when I push an update out. I’m looking forward to receiving feedback from you guys & girls!
Drum & Waits
Ik heb het niet zo voor drum&bass of breakbeat, maar deze “Monkey Got Choked’ van Fanu (Janne Hatula) blijft wel hangen:
Misschien zitten die sample van “Clap Hands” van Tom Waits en het stukje “The Clapping Song” (hier van Shirley Ellis op YouTube) er voor iets tussen?
