New Taillight

I’ve started preparing the Leitra for this coming winter. One thing I’ve wanted to do for a while was replace the low-powered taillight. The original light had 2 LEDs and wasn’t as bring as I would like. After a bit of searching around, I found a 5 LED light that uses higher brightness LEDs and offers several blinking patterns. Most importantly, it came with a mounting bracket that fit in the narrow space in the tail box lid. Here’s what it looks like from inside and outside.

Handy feature

I updated my trusty iPhone 4 to iOS 5. While everyone is talking about siri and all the stuff siri says, the feature I’m find most helpful is wifi sync.

Wifi Sync Logo

Once wifi sync is enabled on an iOS device, it shows up in iTunes all the time. So, if you want to put a new app on your iPhone or re-arrange the apps on the screen from iTunes, you can. And what’s more, you can initiate a sync from iTunes and update you iPhone while it’s still in your pocket. Nice.
