Avalon Wars - Units Re-balance

I suggested to iFree to re-balance three under-utilized units:

  1. Astrotic - Hits all units just like Crusader. Planes cannot just hide behind now. Same hit-rate.
  2. Psychic - Stuns all types of units (driver inside synthetic/pilot inside plane). Same hit-rate.
  3. Raptor - 100% successful hit-rate in stealing energy when charged up.

With these units re-balanced, hopefully these units will be more utilized but not over-powered.

Of course, the number one issue of Avalon Wars is the super long cool down duration. iFree really seriously need to consider bringing down the construction cool down duration. It is too ridiculously long.

Apple iPhone 5 Maps

Well, it's not perfect. Saw on the newspaper that there is quite a fair criticism on iPhone 5 Maps.

Tim Cook even apologize and promise to make it better.

Frankly speaking, I believe he is stalling for time to correct it.

With GPS turn-by-turn voice navigation (except it is not working properly right now), admit it, no other free app even comes close.

*Update: Google Map App is available in AppStore now and it's hot!

Convert Micro-SIM to Nano-SIM

Convert Micro SIM to Nano SIM for iPhone 5.
Convert SIM to Nano SIM for iPhone 4.

I have personally not tried it yet, but it may be useful to you.
I will try it as soon as I get my iPhone 5.

Found this guide by Christian von der Ropp.

After you have cut your SIM, you might like to get an adapter.

Disclaimer: Follow these instructions at your own risk. Cutting your SIM card may destroy it!

  1. Download and print this page at 100% scale on a A4-size page.
  2. Fix your SIM card with double-sided tape to the printed template.
  3. Use a ruler and a marker to draw the cut lines onto your SIM card.
  4. Cut your SIM card along the drawn lines using scissors or pen knife. Cutting contacts usually does not impact functionality as the actual chip below is much smaller.
  5. Round the edges by grinding them with sandpaper or a filer.
Including tolerance defined by ETSI specifications (p.20) (+30µm/-70µm) NanoSIMs (0.67mm) are just 60µm thinner than a Mini SIM (2FF) or Micro SIM (3FF) (both 0.76mm), which corresponds to the thickness of a human hair and thus does not make a difference in practice, notably not on the iPhone 5.
