Shane Warne - The Leader

Color me surprised, I was amazed by his replies. Here is my favourite one

Harsha Bhogle: What you strive to do as a leader? Understand people?

Shane Warne: Look, it is a real difficult one sometimes, as captain, because you want to be their friend. I think it is important to be their friend and let them know. Because once you get their friendship and trust then you can talk direct and be honest with them. If you haven't really built up that trust, you can become a dictator. And there is a big difference between being a dictator and friend. It is a lot easier to accept criticism from you friend or a decision you may not like from a friend.

But you still need to keep that distance as a captain and let them know that you are in charge.

Enter into / Exit from Recovery mode for iPhone

Yes, every post you come across suggest the same thing, hold your power button and home button for X seconds. Though it is true, unfortunately I had a couple of situations my iphone doesn't respond to the key combinations. And some time it is very frustrating to hold your buttons so long.

Though TinyUmbrella's basic functionality is to save and restore SHSH blobs, it has the feature I was hoping for.

No holding of Sleep/Wake and Home button required. One click to put your connected device to DFU Recovery mode and another to exit from DFU Recovery mode.
