I decided to create some higher resolution wallpapers of my Code Panda drawing since the old ones were a bit small for newer devices like the iPhone’s retina display, the iPad and the recent Android phones. I created one for each of those mentioned. I’m leaving the old ones available for download too.
I have been drawing a lot on my new Wacom Intuos4. Last night I drew my usual panda character coding on his MacBook Pro. You can view the final painting on my Flickr. I also created iPhone and Android wallpapers out of it for myself since I have a G1 and a iPod Touch. I had people ask for them for their phones so I decide I will have them here to download.

I am considering doing more wallpapers if there is an interest. Let me know in the comments.
Update (Oct 14, 2011): I added higher resolution versions in a new post.
Steve Jobs will once again give a keynote tomorrow at WWDC. I’m usually very excited about this, but for some odd reason I’m not this year. Maybe it’s because I already know that the 3G iPhone is going to be the main topic. It’s cool that it is, but I’m still waiting to see the first batch of Android phones. I don’t care if Jobs says “BOOM” a million times. I’m not running out to buy it tomorrow if it’s available. I guess I’ll just watch what happens without any expectations like every other time.
As I’m typing this, Geoff Smith and Cali Lewis announces RingtoneFeeder. It’s a subscription service, $1.99 a month or $19.98 a year, for getting custom ringtones for you iPhone. These are not just any custom ringtones, but they’re original songs by Geoff Smith. It integrates with iTunes. Looks very easy to use. More details here. Go check it out. Geoff Smith is an amazing artist. I almost want to get an iPhone right now.
Ok, I’m a few days late on this post, but my database server was down. There’s already a lot of coverage on everything that was announced at the keynote at MacWorld 2008 so I don’t need to go into details about everything. Here’s my quick take on the announcements. Continue Reading »
Nothing unexpected here. But it’s officially announced now. The big question is what is going to be announced. The only rumor going around is an ultra mobile laptop. That bodes well for me. I want apple to announce one so that I don’t end up buying the Asus Eee PC. As much as I want to buy that right now, I feel like if I do, Apple will announce the perfect laptop for me and I’d be kicking myself again. I did buy the last-gen Nano a month before the current one was released. I’m not too pissed at that, but a notebook would be different. Even if Jobs doesn’t announce a ultra mobile, an updated MacBook would work too. Something a little lighter and more powerful than the current generation. It’s time to update that line. I don’t really give a crap about a new iPhone, unless they release a 64GB, 3G, unlocked version. The big keynote is on January 15th, 2008. I’ll wait and see. It’s weird how there’s so little rumors flying about.
