娛樂性十足的一部片。
雖然很誇張,但電影不外乎就是要帶人進入平常無法體會的境界,
或是反其道,讓人可以有感同身受的感覺。

She's not my league.

愛情喜劇片,探討男與女在一起的條件。
其實,只要自己喜歡,對方就是十分,不用斤斤計較幾分配幾分的。

How to change built-in dictionaries in iBook on iPad -- DicSelector

img_2706.jpg
Frankfurt.Germany

By default, iBook only supports English to English dictionary. It's a great feature just like the one in Kindle devices. However, the English definition is not always clear enough for foreigners; and sometimes the ebook content is in other languages, for example in Japanese. In these scenarios, the built-in dictionary may not be that handy.

After searching on the internet, to my surprise,  I found that actually iBook did put more than one 
dictionary on iPad. By checking folders with App iFile, you will see several dictionaries:

/Library/Dictionaries/Apple Dictionary.dictionary
/Library/Dictionaries/New Oxford American Dictionary.dictionary
/Library/Dictionaries/Oxford American's Thesaurus.dictionary
/Library/Dictionaries/Shogakukan Daijisen.dictionary
/Library/Dictionaries/Shogakukan Progressive English-Japanese Japanese-English Dictionary.dictionary
/Library/Dictionaries/Shogakukan Ruigo Reikai Jiten.dictionary

Apparently, there are English-Japanese and Japanese dictionaries inside. We just need a way to set other dictionaries as the default dictionary. A good blog post in Japanese describes in detail how to do this for us already. The quick way to do so is to manipulate the file:

/var/mobile/Applications/iBooks/iBooks.app/Japanese.lproj/DefaultDictionaries.plist

By changing the dictionary order in the file, you can have access to other dics. Still, it's tedious to change the file every time I want to use another dic. Well, seems that someone have the same feelings as I do!!! A utility is created to make our lives easier -- DicSelector!!

DicSelector can be installed by adding a package source in Cydia. Yeah, you got it. You need to Jail-break. You won't regret it! Here's the steps to add the source:

1. Launch Cydia and switch to "Manage" tab
2. Tap on Sources
3. Press Edit on the right up corner, and then press "Add" on the left up corner
4. input this url: http://homepage3.nifty.com/moyashi/cydia/
5. Now, wait until Cydia update the sources
6. Search "DicSelector" and install it.
7. Go back to "Settings" app, you will see DicSelector now under Extensions at the left panel list
8. Tap on it and choose your favorite dictionary!!!
9. Change your default language to Japanese
10. Launch iBook and enjoy your dictionary

Updates (2010/07/22)
With iBooks 1.1 or 1.1.1, DicSelector no longer works. Instead, you can modify the following file:
/var/mobile/Applications/xxxx/iBooks.app/BKDictionaryManager_LanguageToOrder.plist
All you have to do is change the order of the dictionaries in "en" or in "ja".
In this way, the Japanese English dictionary can also be used to look up words in pure English epub files.

= = = = =

別以為iPad上的iBook因為免錢送你用,所以就只寒酸地送你一套英英的新牛津美國字典。其實,iBook裡頭還偷放了日文辭典 -- 大辭泉、小學館Progressive英和、和英中辭典、還有日文的類語例解辭典。對於苦於英英翻譯的人,又略懂日文的人,如果可以有辦法把這些"隱藏"的字典功能打開,那不就太棒了,馬上可以省下買日文字典的錢。

廢話不多說,這就來教你怎樣切換 iBook 隱藏的字典。首先呢,如果你不想JB的話,可以自己手動想辦法改下面這個檔案,把你想要的字典改到最前面。

/var/mobile/Applications/iBooks/iBooks.app/Japanese.lproj/DefaultDictionaries.plist

裡頭的內容大概長成這樣:

<key>DCSDefaultActiveDictionaries</key>
<array>
 <string>/Library/Dictionaries/New Oxford American Dictionary.dictionary</string>
 <string>/Library/Dictionaries/Oxford American Writer's Thesaurus.dictionary</string>
 <string>/Library/Dictionaries/Apple Dictionary.dictionary</string>
</array>



如果你跟我一樣懶的話,可以先把iPad JB一下,然後依照下面的步驟輕鬆切換字典:

1. 開啟 Cydia 並切換到 "Manage" 這個Tab
2. 按一下 Sources
3. 按一下右上角的 Edit,再按一下左上角的 Add
4. 輸入 http://homepage3.nifty.com/moyashi/cydia/
5. 然後,讓Cydia更新一下它的套件庫
6. 在Cydia中搜尋 DicSelector 這支小程式,並安裝它
7. 好啦!請回到 iPad 的"設定",你會發現左邊的Panel,Extensions下面多了一個DicSelector
8. 點一下它,你就可以開始設定你想要的字典了
9. 記得把你的語系切換到日文。目前這支程式好像只有去改日文語系時iBook的預設字典設定
10. 進到 iBook,開始享用吧!

沒圖沒真相,來一張圖吧:

サマーウォーズ Summer wars

來自官網

サマーウォーズ 是部日本動畫電影,劇中把目前很流行的網路世界無限擴大,每個人的現實生活機能都可以透過虛擬網路世界的Avatar來操作。由於大量依賴網路世界,一旦被入侵後,就有著各種危機存在。除了主軸外,還穿插著親情的橋段,讓整部電影不會過於宅。


蠻推薦的一部電影。

LIFE

不是很好看。以為 Jake Gyllenhaal 有演出,應該會有點看頭的。 故事是在講一群太空人在太空站上試著培養火星來的休眠單細胞生物,最後愈搞愈大,變得不可收拾的地步。 中間很多故做緊張的情節,但因為張力不夠,再加上配樂又不是很優(也有可能是因為在家看的關係,聲光效...
