Now.. It's time for you to get the lady you want..

Hey young lads out there..
Have you been sighting on any targets..?
Not sure how to make the first move..?
Well.. here is a list of steps which could make any guy to be the lucky one and make the others jealous of you..

Conquer the fear of approaching women

The first thing you need to get under control is comfort when approaching women. You need to get to the point where you can walk up to a woman and start talking to her without turning into an emotional basket case. If you're freaked out on the inside, it's going to be pretty hard for you to act "normal" on the outside. And it's going to be even harder to try new things and use techniques that you're learning if you're uptight. The best thing you can do is go out and start conversations with about 50 women over the next week or two. If you're too nervous to converse, just give a compliment and walk away. Say "Hi, I just wanted to tell you that I think you're beautiful. Have a great day," and walk away.

Once you’re in, don’t back down

Once you can keep your cool and compliment a woman, try keeping eye contact with the woman while you're saying it. After that, try pausing for three seconds before you say the word "beautiful" -- while keeping eye contact. If you can do this, you'll have women stop you and try to talk to you as you're walking away. When you can do this comfortably, try asking her a few casual questions to start a conversation. Ask her if she lives in the area or if she's visiting. Ask her what her name is -- simple stuff. At this point you'll be ready to use the three minute e-mail/phone number technique, and ask for her e-mail.

Don’t show your cards too soon

Let’s say you’re in class -- it could be a university class or a yoga class at your local gym or whatever. Go sit next to the girl you’re interested in and do your best to ignore her for most of the class. Pretend she’s not even there. Don't look at her, talk to her, etc. If she says anything to you during the class or asks you a question, answer it in a disinterested voice and don't look at her. She’ll be wondering why you’re not looking over at her and this sets you up for what comes next.

Tease her, then get her number

Then, as the class is coming to an end, turn to her and look her in the eyes and say, "So is it true what they say about redheads (or blondes, or brunettes)?" in a cool, calm way -- maybe with one eyebrow raised. She'll say "What do they say?" Then you answer, "Well if you don't know, I'm not going to tell you," and give her a sly smile, as if you know something that she doesn't. Then say, "What's your name?" After getting her name say, "I have to run after class; do you have an e-mail address? Maybe we can grab a Starbucks sometime." Then hand her your cell phone as if you fully expect her to enter her info.

Remember how important “inner game” is

I get a lot of e-mail from guys who are athletes, bodybuilders, naturally handsome, etc. that all say the same thing -- if you don't have the right attitude, understanding and skills, then looks alone are almost useless. On the other hand, if you have the attitude, understanding and skills, then looks aren't that important. So, focus on deepening your integrity and your understanding of women, and do something every day to step out of your comfort zone. You’ll get the rock-solid “inner game” that women find irresistible.

Do you want a “Total 10”?

A “Total 10” is a woman who’s beautiful inside and out -- she’s hot, intelligent, emotionally mature, and knows who she is. If this is the kind of women you want, you're probably not going to meet her at a bar, a club or a strip club. Go check out some self-improvement classes or the gym or a yoga class. Start asking the questions that women usually ask at first like, "Are your parents still married?" "How was your childhood?" "Have you ever been in an abusive relationship?" I know it sounds a little backward, but you should probably start asking these questions at the very beginning, when you first meet a girl. This will save you a lot of time in the long run. And remember, there are no perfectly healthy people running around on this rock called Earth.

Decide if you want to play the field or not

One of the most important things you need to do is decide what you want for yourself. If you want to date different women, then do it. If you want to be exclusive, then do it. However, make sure you're making the decision based on what you want for your life. Second, if you want to date more than one woman at a time and the woman you're dating says she wants to be exclusive with you, then you need to accept that she might leave if you date other women. Deal with it. Too many guys cringe and say, "Oh, but I can't lose this girl. I'll do whatever she wants." This is a bad move of course. When you decide to put aside what you want for your life because you're trying to please someone else, trouble usually isn't far down the road.

Learn to set up an “open” relationship

If you do decide that you want to date different women, you might say: "I think that it's a big mistake for two people to get into a relationship so fast. Most relationships that end badly end because the people got involved too quickly and because they didn't know each other at all. I like spending time with you, but I'm not interested in talking about having an exclusive relationship with you until I've known you longer." Be strong. It's worth it.

Start off with a bang

If you start off the interaction with a woman in the right way, you'll form a "first impression" that will cause her to see anything you do from then on in the context of the attractive attitude with which you began. I personally think it's a good idea if you keep up the Cocky & Funny attitude, easing off as you start having more and more conversation. Don't stop entirely, because at some point you'll begin to lose the magnetic challenge that worked for you in the first place. This is another reminder that once a woman thinks of you in a particular way, she's likely to think of you in that way for a long time. And if you start out by acting like a Wussy, she's going to assume that you will always act like one before she turns to run.

Take your game to the next level

The most important thing you can do to get the women you want is to continually improve yourself. Learn from every interaction you have. Ask yourself if you’re coming from a place of confidence or a place of insecurity. Are you having fun and enjoying your conversations with women or are you getting uptight and serious? Invest in yourself -- get coaching from guys who are great with women and your skills will improve almost on “autopilot.” If you don’t invest in yourself and “sharpen your saw,” your results will never improve. Don’t let that happen.

So guys out there..
Got the idea already?
Watcha waiting for..?

MagicKey 1.0 - N95 able to use all 4 multimedia keys for gaming!

image image

Well this little handy application has been out for a while now, but for those of you who are still unaware of how powerful and handy it is, or are just wondering how to make it work, read on.

Earlier this year we got a pleasant surprise when the N95 was able to use the multimedia keys for gaming, but was limited to only two keys, and only for n-gage games. ...but all that is about to change, with MagicKey you can now map any particular key to another, making Nokia devices truly "Open To Anything" and redefining the mobile gaming experience all together.

So, ready for the ultimate mobile gaming experience? let's get started!

Step 1:

Download the application:

Download MagicKey Here

Step 2:

You can either install the application to your phone memory or memory card, it doesn't make a difference. Please note that the file is unsigned, so you will have to sign the file before installing it.

Step 3:

The video above gives you a rough idea of how MagicKey works, but for your convenience I will guide you step-by-step

1. Open the MagicKey application.

2. In the app itself, switch over to the "KeyMap List" tab.

3. Select Options > Add, then click "Add Key Pair".

4. When you get the "Original Key/ Maps to" pop up as shown above, click the centre key.

5. Then you should get a new screen displaying a long list of keys for you to choose from.

6. If you want to map the number "3" key to the "forward key", type in "forward" in the key list and it should be there for you to choose. Select it by clicking the centre key once again. (This is the "Original Key")

7. Then move down to the "Maps to" area and click the centre key again. Once more you will get the same list of keys, but type in "3" and select it just as you did earlier.

8. Now click "OK" and go back to the "App list" display. (Still in the MagicKey app itself)

9. Here, you can add any application of your choice. Then select a key map you defined earlier.

10. Exit the application and you can now use the new set of keys for gaming! : )


Known Issues:

For now MagicKey somehow is not able to dedicate itself to N-gage, but don't worry there's a workaround for this bug.

1. After defining a set of keys for your n-gage games, you will have to set this desired keymap to "All apps" instead of "Games" (n-gage application).

2. This means that the multimedia keys will be mapped to any other key you set in ALL APPLICATION of the phone.

3. It's great for n-gage gaming, but you now can't change tracks with it??

Don't worry, here is how to fix that bug too:

1. Since we mapped the n-gage keymap to "all apps", we now have to create a new keymap to ensure the functionality of the multimedia keys for music playback still works.

2. To do this, simply map the keys back to the forward and rewind buttons, and now set this 2nd keymap to be used in the Music Player ONLY.

3. Now you can play games with the multimedia keys, while also retaining their original purpose, Sweet!


I know this is all a little confusing, so guys as usual please do not hesitate to leave a comment if you have any problems.

Mile High Pinball Codes Have Arrived

N-gage It sure took long enough, but at least Nokia kept their word. N-gage First Access users who completed the survey roughly a month ago can now get hold of the free mile high pinball codes as promised. But I couldn't help to think, is it too late?

It's great i finally received my free game, but truth is i already had a "work around" to get free, full n-gage games. ; )

BinPDA's efforts are truly legendary, hats off to them!

Feeling like crossing the friend border line?

Most people get fond to the person whom they spend more time with.
In most cases, this kind of incident always happen to friends...
Now.. the question is.. what should we do next..?
Here I am to give out a few pointers so that you are clear of what you want..

You've had feelings for your friend for a while and you're worried about crossing the line and ruining the friendship. That's not really true, of course, but that's what you keep telling yourself so you can justify not putting yourself on the line and risking rejection.

Sure -- it's possible to love a friend of the opposite sex without picturing him or her in bed. Having feelings for your friend doesn't necessarily prove Harry's theory in "When Harry Met Sally" who famously declared that "No man can be friends with a woman that he finds attractive. He always wants to have sex with her."

There are exceptions to Harry's rule, but one thing is certain -- being seen as just a friend by all the people you want to date can be frustrating. So here are a few ways to prevent being stuck in (cue scary music): 'The Friend Zone':

1. Do Flirt
It's okay if romance is on your brain when you greet your friend. In fact, it can fuel the chemistry. It's good for your friend to catch you subtly checking him or her out. As long as you're not drooling or gawking, it can be sexy. You want your friend to think he or she imagined the look. Light touching and sincere and specific compliments are great for flirting, too.

2. Don't Be the Problem Solver
Are you on speed dial every time your friend needs something fixed or wants to process a bad relationship? It's nice to help your friend occasionally, but make sure you're not the one he or she associates with problems.
If you do come over to help, mention that you're happy to assist for an hour but have plans after that. Better to remain a little mysterious and have your friend wondering who else is getting your attention.

3. Have Fun
Create unique memories. You're aware of your friend's passions, so initiate fun and interesting activities that you know your friend will enjoy but isn't doing with others.
And -- if someone has dumped you, confide in a friend you don't have feelings for! Remember to keep an upbeat attitude and stay confident -- those are two of the most attractive qualities cited by singles when looking for a mate.
Of course, not every friendship ends with a romantic happy ending and you may have to be prepared that your crush just wants to stay your friend. You'll have to decide if that's enough for you.
In the meantime, if you feel like you often end up in the friend zone with people you want to date, plant some of these seeds and see if anything grows in your relationship. Sometimes a glass of wine or a flirtatious exchange can change the dynamic... and you look at each other and wonder why it took so long.

Got Me N95 Back - A Whole New World.

image So after an excruciating 5 weeks without my N95 due to water damage.... erhmm.. twice, I finally got it back from NSC on Monday. in that period I got myself a 5310 XpressMusic, a phone I've been eyeing for quite some time now as a spare phone. I expected the radical switch from the N95's feature packed S60v3 OS 9.1 Platform to the 5310's S40 5th edition platform to be a gruelling experience, but at that instance of "life or death" it wasn't really that bad.

The 5310 was a comfortable phone in my hand, though it felt a little feeble compared to what I'm used to. The 3.5mm jack and playback keys made me feel "at home" with the device instantly. ...To bad i couldn't say the same for the UI. Admittedly at first it was rather confusing at annoying at times because everything was so simple and constrained in the S40 platform. After a few hours though, i started getting the hang of things and the only setback was the poor camera quality. During that 5 weeks i literally fell in love with the slimness of the phone, being only 1cm think (Nokia prefers to call it 0.99mm) it makes for a pretty good style accessory for certain events. ;D

Being a music phone, the 5310 truly shines in it's audio quality. The on-board music chip really does make a difference. When i connect it to my BOSE speakers and headphone for comparison, the results and stunning. Sadly i have to say in terms of output quality, the 5310 actually beats the N95. However, the built in speakers are not as satisfying. Treble is good, but when it comes to bass the 5310 has less of it than a 1985 transistor radio.

             As i mentioned earlier, i my N95 was subjected to water damage twice. In it's second trip Nokia actually had to have the entire motherboard replaced, not just the LCD. Yea sure, getting a fresh motherboard and LCD is good stuff, but i got the shock of my life* when i switched it on. MY IMEI HAD BEEN CHANGED. Suddenly it struck me, all the joy of having my phone back suddenly smashed by a harsh realization of the work ahead to restore my phone's software. All the apps i had, all had to be signed again, all software bought had to be requested to suit and compensate my new IMEI.

*I did not actually get the shock of my life. ;D

             Arrggghh!! symbiansigned...... What took me long enough to figure out how to apply for a devcert last time, now took me the just as long to figure out the total opposite - they don't give away free devcerts anymore -. In fact not only do you need to have a Published ID, but you have to pay $200 just to get one! Obviously i was not going to pay *DUH*. Instead, pushed by sheer determination to get all those lovely apps back into my N95 again, i searched for an alternative. Yes, i hacked my phone.        

             Thanks to BinPDA and ZORN, hacking the S60 platform nowadays was literally a breeze. The only setback was that i had to Rootsign everything all over again, but that certainly beats paying $200, no complaints then! Now, i have Full N-Gage games installed, 13 additional custom folder icons, and so, so much more to come. Of course, you all can count on me to bring you all the goodies and latest news in the S60 and N95 world. Till next time!
