So on September 9th (as of time of writing thats last night) Apple announced (among other things) the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus… Both are which are larger than the any predecessor. I won’t go into details of what each phone does / has… as i’m sure you can find that information anywhere on the Internet :). The biggest question on everyones minds is….
Which should I buy?
So, I was curious about the sizing of the new devices, therefor I made a really quick and dirty paper prototype with the precise dimensions. What it shows… the 6 Plus is a beast, larger, but somewhat smaller than a Samsung Galaxy Note II, but probably a commuters powerhouse, a halfway house between the traditional sized iPhone and iPad. Whereas the iPhone 6 is a welcomed and comfortable size increase on the iPhone 5/5S/5C generation.
Now next to the original devices
Despite the iPhone 6 Plus being ginormous… I think thats the one i’ll be getting… Having to commute 1 hour a day on a train and being an overall geek… it suits me well 🙂
For more info on the specs and sizing of the new iPhones I suggest visiting the apple specs webpage.
Amazon recently released their “Send to Kindle” plugin, allowing users of Kindles (whether on iOS/Android or owning a physical Amazon Kindle device) can now send any post on this blog directly to their device over the air or whispernet (depending on device) without having to manually copy and paste content. A little convenience method for those who wish to read offline / on the go. For those who don’t… simply ignore it 🙂
Enjoy offline reading! (go into the posts to see “Send to Kindle” buttons
Last week I had the chance to take a peak at the Gadget Show Live event hosted at the NEC in Birmingham, UK. There were literally hundreds of vendors present, all showcasing their latest products and innovations; aswell as the usual suspects and big names you’d expect. Rather than bore you with a mash up of what I saw as you’ve probably seen all that over 1000 blogs.. I thought i’d post up a few photos I took at the event of various things…
Hope you enjoy them, photos after the break…

Hurricane Electric, the most reliable tunnel broker in my opinion have always provided ipv4 exhaustion statistics as found somewhere on this site! however, they’ve now launched an iPhone application and gadgets/widgets for google desktop and windows. From the email they sent me i quote:
“We have just released a free iPhone App, Webpage Widget, and
Google and Windows Desktop Gadgets that report the growth of IPv6 deployment and the exhaustion of IPv4.”
I thought it would be worth mentioning as i know lots of readers here have iPhones :). The iPhone App, Webpage Widget, and Desktop Gadgets are available at:
So you’ve probably wondered why i went from posting 3 times a day to not posting at all. I’ve been pretty busy recently with exams, jobs, personal-issues and so on. Few bits of news regarding the project. I’ve moved house, therefor am going to migrate everything thats using UKERNA over to HE.NET purely as they seem to be much more stable, and I can use 6over4 🙂 Also i am working on something you are all gonna like, just gimme time and i’ll have it sorted 🙂 need to buy a more powerful server first heh 🙂
For now peace! and stay tuned for whats coming next 🙂

Hey everyone, i moved everything from where it was about 5 miles down the road, slight change in ipv4 addressing, (1 digit) but ipv6 addressing stays the same, let me know if any services are not working correctly 🙂 peace x
If any of you have been recently experiencing connectivity issues with the site or problems with zones generated using the zone builder, these bugs have been now rectified.
The zone builder was not specifying a $TTL correctly, Also as all of my zones are generated here, my bind9 stopped working properly. All fixed now, sorry for any inconvenience caused 🙂
Hey everyone, i’ve updated the IPV6 Looking Glass now, it will respond with live results, therefor completely eliminating any lag/timeout issues 🙂 hope you all enjoy the new improved version, stay tuned for whats coming next 😉
