  • Meet the Staff: iYeow / Yeow

    Meet the Staff is a new series which, over the next few weeks, will be highlighting ModMyi.com's awesome staff. Hopefully this well let our readers and members get to know us a little better by learning a bit more about our staff's wealth of crazy and fun people.

    So far we have covered 8 amazing and spectacular people that really put their blood, sweat, and tears into running this wonderful site. Cody Overcash, Kyle Matthews, Broomhead, Simon, thetoothfairy, i.Annie, blkcadi, and Erik.

    Logan - Tell us a little about yourself. Your age, location, education, and what you want to be when you grow up?

    Yeow - My name is Yeow and I go with iYeow on ModMyi. I am 52 years born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and graduated from Saint John's High School and the Institute Technology Jaya. I immigrated to Canada in 1989 and studied at Simon Fraser University here in Vancouver majoring in Managament & System Science. I now work in Malaysia and Canada as a field service engineer for office equipment and electronics specializing in Mailing Equipments.I live in a 98 year old house in Vancouver near the ocean (but no view :-(.) I have a pet Angora lionhead longhair rabbit who rules the house demanding of food and petting. " Logan - See pic below."In summer I love to go to the beach or go camping in the forest. I spend hours working in the garden growing flowers and trying to get the lawn all green. In winter I like going swimming and exercising at the gym. Fortunately Vancouver winters are not as cold as in the rest of Canada which is good for me, having been raised in a hot country.When i was a little boy, my dad would buy me eletric trains and within 3 days, it would be all taken apart and couldn't figure out how to put it back. I guess i was curious about what was inside the train which makes me a future techie guy..

    Logan - How'd you first get involved with the MMi community? How long have you been apart of MMi?

    Yeow - A Google search pointed me to ModMyi, so I decided joined in Febuary, 2008 when I got my first generation iPhone 2g and Itouch 1st Gen and started jailbreaking. I enjoy teaching iPhone users how to get more out of their idevices. In 2010 i was given the ModMyi moderator privilege recommended by blkcadi and a few other staff members which allows me to teach more people. Ever since then, logging into this website has become part of my daily routine.

    Logan - What devices do you own? Is their one can't wait to get?

    Yeow - I own 2 iPhone 3gs, 2 iPhone 4's and an iPad 2 and hope to acquire an Iphone 5 as well as every new iPhone device every year - money permitting, which it probably won't -hehe.

    Logan - What Cydia/Apple tweaks/applications can you not live without?

    Yeow - My favourite tweaks are Iconoclasm, Shrink, Folder Enhancer, Infinidock, Bytafont, Barrel, My3g, MyWI, Intelliscreen, Ifile, Winterboard, Sbrotator, sbsettings, Iacess and different themes.

    Logan - What do you think of the new iOS5 and iPhone 4S

    Yeow - IOS 5 is a major update for idevices with over 200 new features . Some of the most prominent features i like are Notifications, IMessage, Remimders, Icloud ..etc..
    Not sure about iPhone 4S as the only changes are Siri, faster processor and 8 megapixels don't really impress me enough to upgrade and I am currently happy with my iphone 4.

    Logan - If you could be any super hero who would it be and why?

    Yeow - If I could be a super hero, I would like to be Batman as Batman operates in the Dark like i operate into the late hours. I could be helping ModMyi members right from my Dark Cave with all my sophisticated equipments. Any repairs, please send it over to Batman Dark Cave's Mansion, i will fix you up!

    Logan - Any fun facts or additional information you care to share about yourself?

    Yeow - Well, I am semi retired now. I like to travel preferably every year back to Asia or Europe. I have brothers and sisters living in the States, England , Australia , Singapore and Malaysia.
    I enjoy a cup of coffee every morning, Spicy food ( Curry is my favourite ) and I usually cook at home.
    I would also like to thank the staffs of Modmyi who have been helpful with advice in times of my needs.

    Logan - Yeows Lion Rabbit thing.

    Only a handful of staff members left so stay tuned!

      those numbers are impossible, unless the guy on top is Logan, and the rabbit is iYeow.
      Also Tooth Fairies just aren't.... "long in the tooth" unless there's some kind of magic involved.
