Free vector images for playing cards

Found a problem with the Snap sample project from Ray Wenderlich site - the poker/playing card images are only for iPhone, and the resolution is not good enough for iPad/iPad Retina!! Need to find a way to create 52+ (plus back, joker, ...etc) card images...

Was looking at some sample codes on the net and thinking about writing a small "auto card image generating" application which allows users to edit their favourite photos and use it as the card image or something like that (any one got this running or available already? Please let me know!). Later found that there's actually quite a few free vector images for playing cards available on the net, cool!

Found 2 so far:
1) https://code.google.com/p/vector-playing-cards/ by Bryon Knoll




2) https://code.google.com/p/vectorized-playing-cards/
or
http://sourceforge.net/p/vector-cards/home/Poker%20Sized%20Playing%20Cards%20in%20Vector%20Formats%20(.SVG%20and%20.EPS)/  by Chris Aguilar


Personally I think the 2nd one looks better...

Any way, an extra resource for any one interested in making any card games! Enjoy!

iPhone 5s with fingerprint reader, 13 megapixel camera and iOS7!

Read this news from appleinsider.com about French website Nowhereelse.fr reports leaked document from Japan about new iPhone 5s coming with fingerprint reader, 13 megapixel camera and iOS7, cool!

Need to reboot iPhone 5 to recover internet connection??!!

I am with Telstra and don't know why but every now and then (around every few weeks?) the internet connection on my iPhone 5 would hung and wouldn't response at all.

When it first happened a while back, there's really bad storm outside and I have to call Telstra help desk for help. The instruction I received was to shut the phone down completely and turn it back on 30 seconds later.

Since then it happened quite a few times already. Not sure if it's Telstra issue or iPhone issue, and wonder if anyone having similar issue as well??
