The Really Simple Toggle iPhone App I Want

OK, so we went ahead and got iPhone 4s for work. Mostly all good, although a little bit bigger and more fragile than our sturdy Nokia E71s. And the whole millions of apps things is sort of handy. However, there is 1 app I really want and just can't find. Actually, make that 2. I want an app that is simply a toggle button. All it does is switches tethering on and off. And another one for Bluetooth. In other words, want to be able to touch on an icon on the home screen and Bluetooth switches on, touch again and its off. Better yet if the icon can indicate whether it's on or off. Come on someone, write this already. I reckon lots of other people would be willing to pay for this app.

JZX110 Mark II Fortuna by Modellista Information

I went digging through some old sites and then used the Wayback Machine to find the original content of the sites (now lost) and then used Google Translate to translate the content into an approximation of English. Long winded, I know. But I couldn't find this information anywhere else.

This info is mainly from the Toyota Japan site, back in 2002-2004. And yes, the color coding is tricky and doesn't make much sense. I think they mean this:

Special Features (red)

Standard (blue)

Optional (yellow)

Dealer installed options (by Moderisuta) (purple)

Is this a warning?

Is it just me or have there been a lot of large-ish earthquakes this year? Haiti, Chile, Indonesia and now, this. Are we being warned? A quote from this article out of the LA Times:

"The number of quakes greater than magnitude 4.0 in Southern California and Baja California has increased significantly in 2010. There have been 70 such quakes so far this year, the most of any year in the last decade. And it's only April. There were 30 in 2009 and 29 in 2008. Seismologists said they are studying the uptick but cannot fully explain it."

Be ready!
