Maldives - Dive Sites in Google Maps / Earth

I finally got round to creating a google map of the dive sites I went to during our Honeymoon 3 years ago in the amazing Maldives.

Check it out:

Pretty cool. If anyone wants any advice or info on diving in the Maldives, leave a comment :)

iPhone 4 Infinity FaceTime

My friend and colleague Dave Hope just had a FaceTime video chat with our new iPhone 4's, and during the call we did the geeky thing of pointing the camera of one iPhone at the screen of another, causing a cool infinity effect! See screenshot below:

Pointless? - Yes.
iPhone 4 FaceTime first? Possibly!

Cycling to and from Work - with my iPhone 4

I've been cycling to and from work 2 days a week for over 6 months now, and have really been enjoying it. Today I decided to introduce some tech to the experience, and downloaded the app iMapMyRide (Free edition). I started the route recording, and just left the phone in my shorts pocket safely buttoned up. I was pretty impressed with the results - I was seriously expecting it to not result in accurate tracking data at all, but pretty much it's spot on.

I don't profess to my cycling commute to be long or arduous, however it is pretty hilly (check the elevation graphs) but despite that, it's awesome fun.

See below for the route summaries.

Mallorca Diving May 2010

I just came back from a brilliant 2 week holiday with family and friends in Mallorca where I managed to sneak in 2 dives with Skualo, based in Ca'n Picafort. The dives were both in the small fishing village of Cala Ratjada, based on the north east coast. Follow the link below to see my photos at picassa:
