The default value is default.

  • The order has change in the top 3 of the most evil companies…Apple is now number one!

    1. Apple
    2. Oracle
    3. Microsoft

    In a public legal brief (PDF), Apple offers numerous design alternatives that Samsung could have used for its smartphones and tablets to avoid infringing on Apple's patents.

    From the PDF

    "Alternate tablet computer designs include: overall shapes that are not rectangular with four flat sides or that do not have four rounded corners; front surfaces that are not completely flat or clear and that have substantial adornment; thick frames rather than a thin rim around the front surface; and profiles that are not thin relative to the D’889 or that have a cluttered appearance."

    The simple combination of these things shouldn't be protected! Tablet are sharing by the same design limitations and there are a limited number of ways to solve the problems. Touch screens devices are going to be rectangular, with few buttons and most of the space dedicated to the screen!

  • apple-iphone.3gs.repair.diy

    I will show you how to repair a cracked or broken iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, or iPod Touch screen yourself.

    In brief, what you need to know

    • The 3G and 3Gs screens are different! you can not mount an iPhone 4 screen on a 3G(s)
    • There is NO 3rd party or lower quality screens, all 3rd party repair company just LIE.
    • Different kit are available:
      • LCD only for 12€ to repair a broken LCD screen only: the iPhone has an intact glass screen, however the image behind the glass screen is absent, broken or distorted.
      • Glass + digitizer for 22€ This is for an iPhone 3G device with a broken glass screen or malfunctioning touch screen with the image (LCD Screen) behind the screen still intact.
      • Glass + digitizer + LCD + button + speaker mounted for 42€ the most expensive but the easiest to replace
    • Duration: 30, 15 or 2 minutes depending on the kit

    I went for the most expensive Kit on ebay.fr, which allow you to replace the broken screen by removing 2 screws, an connecting 3 cables!

    By the way I would NEVER send any phone to anyone, how do you think all these private pictures land on forums? removing the sim card is not enough, there are tools to fetch data even after the have been removed!

    Glass + digitizer + LCD + button + speaker kit mounted with all required tools to perform the repair

    apple-iphone-screen-repair-kitapple-iphone-screen-repair-kit2

    Step 1

    Remove the 2 small Phillips screws located at the bottom of the iPhone

    apple-iphone-screen-repair-step1

    Step 2

    Using the suction cups, pull up the screen upper part while retaining the body, it will come with no efforts

    apple-iphone-screen-repair-step2apple-iphone-screen-repair-step3

    Step 3

    Look at the connectors that you will have to pull off using the tool. Apple numbered the black ribbon cables 1, 2, and 3. The ribbon 3 being hidden under the cable that connect to 2. Just pull the cables in that order 2,1 and 3 off,

    apple-iphone-screen-repair-step4apple-iphone-screen-repair-step5

    Step 4

    Connect the new screen by plugging in that order 3, 1 and 2. Verify proper operations before closing with the 2 Philips screw the case back.

  • This time Apple did not come out with a funny or content that really represent the REALITY. Don’t be fool, this is now just pure advertising (no pc is existing without viruses, big screens and crashes). Come on Apple, your ads were funny in the past

  • CedThumbnails has been updated to version 2.5.9 and contains 4 new features and correct some bug for  Joomla 2.5. For existing users the update will display in the Extensions Managerunder Updates. If you do not have this currently installed, you can click the link below and install like you are use to via the Extensions Manager.

    NEW: The function that detect images in your articles is now clever and now support better fallbacks. It now support Joomla articles metadata (intro image and full article image). With the first option selected the system will always find at least one image to render as thumbnail. Priority is from left to right.

    • search in intro text -> use intro image -> in full text -> use full article image (NEW) it’s the default,
    • search in intro text only,
    • search in intro text -> use intro image (NEW),
    • search in full text only,
    • search in full text -> use full article image (NEW),
    • search in intro text -> in full text,
    • search in full text -> in intro text,

    If no images are found, despite going through intro text, full text, intro image and full article image, the system will fallback to a default image that can be set up per modules/plugins.

    NEW: Support for alternate images text and caption.

    NEWSupport for new resizing method:

    • inside: image fits the given dimensions from the inside, aspect ratio will be kept.
    • outside: image will be at least as big as X x Y, aspect ratio will be kept.
    • fill: image will be stretched as necessary, aspect ratio may not be kept. it’s the default resizing method.

    NEW: Support for scaling method, this determines when to scale an image:

    • any: resize regardless of the image size. it’s the default scaling method.
    • up: resize if image is smaller than the new dimensions.
    • down: resize if image is larger than the new dimensions.

    On a side note the code has been improved, no static methods, better decoupling, but that’s another story that interest only developers. Anyway adding new features will be easier!

  • I've seen these add before...but were?

    I know last time was the Vista Sad Song :-)

  • Technology, society has only come this far by building on the work of the people before you! the patent system is broken and useless: UPSTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) don't even check if something was invented by another person or company. Just so long as no one has patent you can do it even if you are NOT the inventor!!!

    From TED.com:
    Nothing is original, says Kirby Ferguson, creator of Everything is a Remix. From Bob Dylan to Steve Jobs, he says our most celebrated creators borrow, steal and transform. Kirby Ferguson explores creativity in a world where "everything is a remix."

    Said in the video:

    • Apple need 28 pages to explain how to unlock your device using your finger…
    • Steve Job famous quote should be extended with “Great artists steal but not from me”

    There are a lot of netbooks on which you can install and run OS X, but if you're mindful of the handy comparison chart those lads at Boing Boing Gadgets have compiled, you'll know that the Mini 9 is about as ideal a platform as you'll find for a Hackintosh ultraportable: Everything from wi-fi, sound and the function keys down to the optional integrated mobile broadband card and the SD card reader are supported and work as they should. No hardware compromises at all. It's awesome. read this very nice tutorial atwww.gizmodo.com

    And it seems a lot of net book can are able to run with OSX, as it can be seen there

  • vshare

    Disclaimer: I don’t recommend vShare or any other alternatives to Install .IPA files.&160; The only reason of this post is to help users try out paid apps before they decide to purchase them. This post do not support piracy or piracy-related apps.

    I recommend you to use instead Android since you can test any paid application for 24h and get a refund if you are not satisfied!

    You will need:

    Only 2 steps are required

    1. Install AppSync
    2. Install vShare

    AppSync

    • Is a package that Cydia asks you to install if you want to install Installous/vShare.
    • Allows users to sync and install cracked App Store applications to your iOS device.
    • Works by patching the Mobile Installation file on the iOS firmware which is needed to install .ipa files (App Store Apps) without going through iTunes.
    • Is only available through an external repository that must be added to Cydia.

    Install

    1. Open Cydia
    2. Go to Manage -> Sources -> Edit -> and tap on Add
    3. Type repo.hackyouriphone.org and tap on Add Source to add the repo
    4. Now search for “AppSync for iOS 6″&160; and install it

    &160;

    vShare


    After you’ve installed AppSync, do the following:

    Enjoy!

  • Apple IPhone don’t fly well, and here is a picture to prove it:

    broken.apple.iphone.3gs

    I will this week end publish an online “how to exchange your iPhone 3GS LCD screen yourself”

    • The Glass can be found on ebay for 22 euros
    • The whole assembled kit: Glass + LCD + frame + home button + speakers + kit of 7 tools for less than 42 euro! this is the kit I ordered yesterday online.

    iphone.3gs.screen.repair.kit

    By the way, Apple ask a little bit more than 200 CHF for replacing the glass.

  • There are “Still” plenty of reasons to jailbreak that aren't directly related to iPhone-specific hardware.

    • Cydia, an APT frontend for your iPhone, get all applications, most are open source or refused by Apple!
      By the way, Cydia was offering cut&paste, video editing, back grounding, MMS and more years before Apple gives us the OS 3.0. What’s coming in OS 4.0? skins and themes :-)
    • Winterboard, apply themes and skins to get more funny spring board, for example with the little big planet skins, they are really hundreds of them!
      &160;little.big.planet.cydia cydia.theme
    • Live Clock and Weather icons,
    • SBSettings,a customizable HUD with handy settings switches accessed by swiping across the status bar in any app or in the home screen, numerical status displays,
    • Customizable system fonts,
    • Multitasking support, dead simple: press Home 2 second to put app in background, 2 second more to disabled background, I did not see any huge power drain differences by running 2 instant messaging apps: Skype and Nimbuzz 2 hours without interruption. The only real issue that must be confirmed is that the iPhone get really hot in the back. I would suspect that Apple is aware of this problem and did not switch back grounding application for this reason.
    • Full access to the file system, normal users don’t need that, but developers find it fun!
    • Terminal, SSH (openSSH yes), VNC and VIM, I can now remotely connect to my host with my RSA keys but more on that later..

    How to Jailbreak your iPhone/iPod 3GS

    I MAKE NO SUPPORT, USE AT YOU OWN RISK

    I just want to share here how simple and how easy it was for ME, it doesnt mean it will work for YOU. Search in Google for a solution in case of disaster (iPhone wont boot up), it seems a backup/restore may save you time and eager.

    Jailbreak with Purplera1n http://purplera1n.com&160;

    Run the exe while having your iPhone connected through USB, click on the button “make it ra1n”

    The iPhone will reboot and a new icon “Freeze” will appear. Click on it to install Cydia [WikiPedia]. The operation take less than 1 minute

    NOTE:

    • You can also afterward install cracked Applications by Drag & Drop into iTunes or by double clicking them and Sync with your iPhone/iPod Touch !!!
    • I recommend you to install “Pandora Box”, a free app that run on any non jail broken iPhone and let you review every day or week all paid applications that get a price drop (paid to free, paid drop in prices ). There is enough (crap) to download for free before paying of even hacking the iPhone.

    Custom Startup images

    Specifying a startup image is available in iOS 3.0 and later. On iOS, similar to native applications, you can specify a startup image that is displayed while your website application launches. This is especially useful when your web application is offline. By default, a screenshot of the web application the last time it was launched is used.

    Custom Messages

    It is possible to override the default message to invite user to add your site to their home screen. In order to be able to support all your visitor locales, you'll have to edit manually the file /media/plg_system_add2home/add2home.js

    Viewport

    Use the viewport meta key to improve the presentation of your web content on iOS. Typically, you use the viewport meta tag to set the width and initial scale of the viewport.
    For example, if your webpage is narrower than 980 pixels, then you should set the width of the viewport to fit your web content. If you are designing an Safari on iOS-specific web application, you should set the width to the width of the device.
    “email” describes the properties supported by the viewport meta key and their default values. When providing multiple properties for the viewport meta key, you should use a comma-delimited list of assignment statements.
    When referring to the dimensions of a device, you should use the constants described in “number” instead of hard-coding specific numeric values. For example, use device-width instead of 320 for the width, and device-height instead of 480 for the height in portrait orientation.
