Over 200 Alice in Wonderland Movie Backgrounds for iPhone, Blackberry, Palm and HTC

These Alice in Wonderland movie backgrounds are listed by resolution size (horizontal dimension listed first). Please identify the right size for your needs, then find characters in among the sizes. Characters are listed by alphabetical order.

  • 320 x 480 pixels (for iPhones)
  • 480 x 320 pixels (for Blackberry Bold 9000s, Palm Pre and some HTC models)
  • 480 x 360 pixels (for most Blackberries and some HTC models)

These graphics are clean and crisp. If look pixelated when you view them, it is because your browser setting is viewing them larger than their actual size. Imagine them at the iPhone, Blackberry, Palm or other smart phone screen size and you’ll probably be able to image that pixelation going away.

Suggestions for Improving the iPad

.

Apple just came out with the iPad yesterday, with the release date being March 27, and I’m already thinking of improvements. I’m not here to bash it, not knowing much of it aside from reading articles on it and the awesome video above. I’m just the type who likes to think about the future.

The iPad seems like a great product, but I expected a few pieces of common technology with it that are not exactly futuristic, though are few are cutting edge. Mostly, I’m talking about some multi-media features and a few casing features.

.

Camera

For starters, I thought Apple could have included a camera, even if just a photo camera and not a video camera. I mean, the cell phones have them, for crying out loud. Would it have been too much to ask for one on the iPad to make it completely multi-media? Imagine, being able to “webcam” with someone on a tablet. How futuristic would that be?

.

Fold out stand and handle

The docking station allows you to perch your laptop in easy ways to view hands free, but what if it had a portable handle that folded out and in? It could swing from about 2/3 of the way up so as to fold out back to make a stand, or flip all the way up to make a handle. I recommended the 2/3 distance up so folding up, it would be higher than the top (1/2 way means it’d hit the top). If you have it around the home, which I imagine you just might, having the carrying case all the time takes away the magic of that pad feel.

.

LCD Projector

Hey, now there’s an idea! Have a projector built in like some projector cell phones are going to have as early as April, when the iPad is due out. Put the projector on the horizontal top side, with the mic on the vertical bottom (horizontal right but you’d use it vertically) and the webcam vertical top (cause your face is long so you’d probably prefer to see your face in its natural frame). Why have your friends look at your pictures and videos on-line a few people at a time, on that relatively small screen? Really show them to the world with that projector! Or do your PowerPoint presentation right from your machine without having to rely on audio/video set up.

.

Remote Control / Light Pen / Laser Pointer

Now you’re talking! Have a light pen / remote control / laser pointer embedded in the length of that handle, or snapped in somewhere in the back of the iPad. In that “stick”, you’d have the remote for like 3-4 generic buttons that have various functions in different programs the way the PC mouse has 3 buttons.  That way, you can be a little away from your iPad while showing friends stuff they need to be closer to see since you’d have already seen it, like flipping your presentation slides you could be showing, with or without your projector.  Or if you’re lying down and want to flip a page as you read on-screen at bed time. Reaching out can be annoying, as ridiculous as it sounds. But if it weren’t, why are remotes all the rage? Remote operations could also be great if you had that projector going.

Of course, the remote control gadget can have a plain tip like a pen on a mouse tablet, as the remote signal could come out of a little slot in the direction of the “stick”, not necessarily the front of it. Sure, fingers are good with the iPad, but if you touch up photos and such, or make digital writing notes, scribble Etch-a-sketch ideas, and so on, a pen would be better.

On the opposite end of the “stick”, have a laser pointer there. I mean, if you’re going to be able to project a presentation from your machine, how nice would a laser pointer be. Learn to twirl it like a drum stick and you’re half a magician. Twirl it to remotely activate the next slide, twirl it to point to things with your laser pointer as you speak, and do it again for each slide, turning on audio as you need to, etc. Having a laser pointer on you most of the time is not a bad idea, either. Ever been in a big space and wanted to point something out to someone, exactly?

And yes, all this would be possible. I’ve seen laser pointers and camera remotes a third the length of a short pencil each. Your AAA battery would fit in the other third, if you can’t design one using a smaller battery that is too wide and flat like the ones in your watch.

.

Price control

I do realize adding some of the features I’m suggesting will make the iPad unaffordable to many people. However, it shouldn’t be exorbitant. Besides, what’s wrong with having a deluxe model?

.

Improvement during lag time?

I don’t know what Apple’s production schedule is like, but with the product not being available till April, essentially, I can’t help but wonder whether they may redesign a few things between now and then. In the tech world, two months is a long time, and I wouldn’t put it beyond the bright people at Apple to be thinking some of the same things I am and putting it into the final model.

Get an iPhone to Judge Coldplay versus Satriani Plagiarism

Share/Save/Bookmark

Joe Satriani

Joe Satriani

Guitarist Joe Satriani and his lawyer are going to be serving Coldplay official legal notice of his intent to sue Coldplay over plagiarism at the Grammy Award weekend. Coldplay’s Viva La Vida supposedly has some close similarities to Satriani’s If I Could Fly. See videos at the end to see and hear for yourself. However, Satriani and his lawyer will not be serving the papers Grammy Awards night as had been previously reported. That would have been a brilliant move, I thought, even if very cold play, for lack of a better description.

What I want to know is why a judge is really needed for this court case?

Has anyone tried to see if the Apple iPhone’s Audio Recognition application could make the call? Please let me know if you have!

To me, the two songs have core parts to them so similar I’d bet the iPhone‘s Audio Recognition application could make the call if it had the two pieces of music and dates for which came first!

If someone is reading this with an iPhone and the conditions mentioned above for valid testing exists, please try it out and let me know! I’m dying to know!

But my point here is it’s a no brainer! I’m an amateur musician and an avid music listener. I know the nature of music well enough to make an informed decision on how close something might be for copyright infringement. Of course, that’s not always easy, but this one is… and you don’t need to be a musician to decide.

The first short video below makes the case pretty well to highlight the main passages. It’s only a short video because EMI, Coldplay’s record label, somehow managed to convince YouTube to pull other such comparison videos for comparison. Those videos had millions of views, apparently, to the mere 292K one below. But EMI, being a music distributor who’s had to face the power of the Internet for years now, was still too stupid to realize it could remove it all and keep it all off YouTube.

Even some groups of idiots never learn.

You go, Joe!!!
