First pic of the new Macbook Pro 15″

Just 2 hours left, until Steve will present the neyt Macbook Pro and maybe also the Macbook models.
Today we found a new pic of a Macbook Pro that seems to be the real new design.

Spicu also has made some rumors in the past, but the pic above is much more possible:

Dead Pixel in Macbook Pro 17 HD Penryn after 6 weeks

I got my new Macbook Pro now for about 6 weeks. Of course I love it, because I got the total package: 17′ Display 1920*1080 pixels with LED Backlight, 4GB of Rams, 200GB HD with 7.200 rpm… everything you need to be happy :) . But at one of the last days – I can’t believe my eyes – I’ve seen some dead pixels at the top of the display.

I’ve read some news the last weeks, that other persons had similar problems too. But most of them only get this problems after “Sleep mode” or something else. Not the same problem I have.

I’ve sent this picture to my local Apple dealer, they told me that they can replace the display but it will take about 2 weeks… 2 weeks without working? That’s impossible.

Now I’m not sure what I should do, the pixels make me nervous:). I wanted to post a complete review of the Macbook, now you people have to wait.

I’ll let you people know what I do the next days. So stay tuned!

Receive a strong Pagerank 4 starting up from 0 in 3 month

That’s it! As I promised at the beginning of this blog in the end of january, Spicu will boom the internet in just a few month. With an alexa Rank for about 200.000 in just 3 month, on saturday just happened the next great thing.

Google has updated it’s Pagerank Toolbar on May 3rd, and as you can see, Spicu.com now has a Pagerank 4. I startet with this site on January 23rd from zero. I had no pagerank, wasn’t ranked in Alexa, and got no Backlinks. The domain spicu.com wasn’t registered before by anybody else (you can check archives.org if you don’t believe!). I didn’t use no spam tactics like getiing backlinks from blog comments or spend any cent in backlinks! Spicu is a live project, and everybody who follows this blog and the Spicu Success Story, can get the same results for himself! Remember always – Spicu is a live project! I’m not a lier, I would not tell you things you will not need.

I don’t want you to get a senseless site with just some backlinks and a few users a day. You should have your own serious project, a site that makes sense to invest your (little) time!

Today I won’t let you know what I exactly did to receive this pagerank. But don’t be angry, I think there are not many sites out there that get a result next to mine. Especially with not spending any money in it! So it’s worth for you to stay tuned! I’ll show you all of my tactics within the next lesson of the Spicu Success Story.

Today the pagerank has not the same priority like before, but regardless to that, the pagerank is still a good value to compete and compare your site with others! And whatever other people think: pagerank does matter and will matter anytime, so don’t turn away completely.

And one last thing – a pagerank 4 is good, but don’t think that this was the last update by Google, that shows some respect to Spicu :-) !

Thanks for reading this article – please don’t forget to digg or social bookmark me!

Time for part 2 of the Success Story. It’s been a while since Part 1, but now you sould be ready for the further steps. After you have done what I’ve told you in The Spicu Success Story (Part1) you have to make some final steps to publish your site on your webspace.

#2 Second Lesson: Some Seo basics

To get our site recognized the best way by Google and the other search engines your site should be easy to be spidered by the robots, and you should to tell the robots what is importent.

Spicu Success Story

First step: The URLs

To make your sites URLs (the URL of a category or of your posts) look useful for a search engine the URL has always to say what it’s content is about. For example a page with content for the keywords “Viral Marketing: The Spicu Success Story (Part1)” has to say what it’s about.
In the WordPress standard template it will be http://www.spicu.com/?p=11 !

Do you think a search engine will recognize this? P=11 will tell nothing. The better way would be: http://www.spicu.com/2008/02/13/viral-marketing-the-spicu-success-story-part1/
You can’t imagine how easy it is, to get this great URL title generated automatically. You only have to activate PERMALINK in your WordPress Dashboard (go to Settings -> Permalink -> Day and Name) – done! Now all your posts have the perfect URL design.

Second Step:

What also is importend for the search engines are the right Title and Meta Tags of your page. There is also a way to get this very easy. You only have to install the ALL-IN-ONE-SEO Pack, which you can download on the link! After uploading the file to WP-Content/plugins you just have to activate the plugin in the Dashboard, you’ll find in every new post you write some extra fields for the seo. Then you can enter a specific Title and Meta Tags for every post. The title should always tell in short words what the sites content is about. For usual that is your posts title. Then enter a short discription of your post and the meta tags that will fit. I think you always should be serious, so don’t tell the search engine lies! They might get angry anytime :) .

Third Step: Get ready and make your first post

Now your done. You are ready to tell the world what your blog is about and write some interesting posts.
After a few hours or mightbe some days your site should be indexed in Google and friends and you can start to push your blog

My iPhone Display is totally broken and damaged!

I knew that this will happen anytime – today it happend! My iPhone was falling down (not the first time) and get totally damaged.
I put it out of my bag and then it crashed down to the streets (stone). The display and the touchsreen were broken completely (as you can see on the picture).

iphone display broken

But what is amazin – it’s still working without any restriction. I can slide, use all apps, send messages and all that other stuff. It only feels a little sick because of the broken glass.

Now I have 3 opportunities:

1. Sending the iphone to an “iphone specialist” what means I don’t have the phone with me for a few days.
2. Order a new touchscreen/lcd and repair it by myself. Costs are about 250$ and I take he risk to damage it more than before because I’m talented in making things broken
3. Get a new iphone – that will cost me another 400$ and I don’t wanna pay that

Anybody out there that can help me with my problem?

I’ll let you know what I’ve done when I made my decision!

iPSP: If Apple had designed the Sony PSP

Everybody loves the designs that Apple is creating. But we also like and need other gadgets too.
I’m a design fanatic, and ifI’m honest, there are many great gadgets out there that we like. But if you be honest – is there only one gadget that has such a clear and nice design like the Apple products? I don’t think so..

My good friend Pilau send me this picture of the “Apple iPSP”. I think if the Sony PSP would look like this I won’t let her out of my hand :-) .

For sure the design of your gadget is not all, the most important are the things it can do. But I think a little bit of that dream is in all of us?
What do you mean? Isn’t that nice? I hope the Sony guys are not envious :)

That’s what Spicu and friends want to see:

Apple Store offline launching the new Macbook Pro?

Today could be the big day. The Apple Store should be offline the next hours. I hope this time not only the US-Store is offline, cause that means no product launch!
Many blogs rumored that new Mabook Pros or maybe new Macbooks are coming. Cause Penryn is out for a while that’s a Must!!!

Apple Store

They’re always the first with new technologies and now they let us wait! I wait now about half a year that the Macbook Pros are coming and I can buy my 17″ LED-Backlight Penryn Macbook ;) .

So good luck guys, hope we all can be happily spent our money today.

That’s what I wish it should look:
