Joyful Joyful Joiku!




Oh what a joy this is. The minute I stumbled upon it, it has already saved me hundreds of dollars and opened up more possibilities to stay connected to the internet.

What are we talking about here? It's the JoikuSpot application for S60 phones. And what does it do? Well, it basically turns your S60 phone into a wireless router.





Now, let that slowly sink into your system. Think of the circumstances that this feature might be useful to you. I, for one, am using it right now as I type out and publish this blog entry.

If you have an unlimited 3G data plan, this application would benefit you most. Imagine having a wireless router in your pocket at all times. It provides the simplest solution to share internet access. No wires, no devices to set up, just turn on the application, wait a few seconds and everyone within, I dunno, a 10 metre radius maybe (?), will have an internet connection.

The first useful application of JoijuSpot for me, is it solves the patchy wifi connection in my house. My wireless router is setup in my studio on the 2nd storey of my house.





The wifi signal on the 2nd floor is mostly fine except in the master bedroom where it gets really low. I bought an Apple Airport Express to try to extend it, but it didn't help much at all. The computer hooked up to my plasma TV in my bedroom had a very hard time getting internet access because the wifi signal is so weak.

Well, not any more! Open the application and within seconds, the computer detects the network and connects to it at full signal. The HSDPA connection is pretty speedy and is as fast as my wifi connection in my studio. Suddenly, surfing in bed with my plasma TV is extremely pleasurable.

And this network follows me wherever I go, which means my plan of getting more wifi network extending antennas or buying more Airport Express' to ensure a decent wireless network on the first storey of my house is now totally unnecessary! That has already saved me hundreds of dollars! This software that I downloaded for free over the internet and installed on my S60 phone in seconds has offered me solutions problems that I have been cracking my head to solve. Oh how joyful!






Now I can keep the Airport Express permanently in my travel bag and use it only to create a wireless network in hotel rooms when I travel.





Of course there are plenty of other applications that this solution can be used for. If you have an unlimited 3G data plan, I would bet that this will be of use to you.


I just want to say a big THANK YOU to JOIKU!

Yup, I have the ultimate data plan. HSDPA is available almost everywhere over here. Worst case is 3G speed. Unlimited up/downloads. All for S$37 or US$26 per month.

Can't make it work. Have installed the Joiku application successfully on my N82. My Dell Latitude D830 connects to the phone, but when I open an IE browser, I get a 404 error. Any suggestions...?

Tiffany not only explored the various jewelry processes of the time, but also branched out into new metals, such as platinum, which at the time was considered very hard to manipulate.It seems to be the case thatSilver Tiffany unusual colorations appealed to Tiffany, like the opal.He also preferred gemstones that were either opaque or translucent. Turquoise, jade, carnelian, Tiffany Jewelrylapis, moonstones, and opals were all chosen for their ability to filter light. Emphasis based on color was very prevalent in his works.
