Samsung Galaxy Note Jelly Bean Update

It's been a while since Samsung has roll-out Jelly Bean update to its original Samsung Galaxy Note. As what have been discussed from various sites, Jelly Bean update for the said device will take the same level as what has been roll-out to Note 2 and Galaxy S3.

Here, I'm going to share my experience on how Jelly Bean update has gone through with my Galaxy Note. I was too excited before and can't really wait to update because for all the new features this update has to offer. What I'm excited for is that the feature for multi-scre
en/multi-tasking and the expectations that it will also improve the device's speed and performance.

When I first get the notification telling that my device is already receiving  the update via OTA, I urgently downloaded it for I have waited it for so long. But to my dismay, the installation didn't go well for it receives error during the process. I tried it thrice but to no avail until the update via OTA vanished. So did, I tried updating via Samsung Kies which went alright. I successfully updated my Galaxy Note to Jelly Bean 4.1.2.

I got the new features and look and all the expected ones but not with the Airview and the previews for Video in the gallery. The better performance it promise to improve is not actually it is because it just worsen it. The device came very laggy and slow. I'm still thinking on reformatting my phone for the hope that it will cure the lagging and slow performance. Still hesitant to do that because if I did, I will lose some data I have for the installed application. But I'll let you know if I did already and give feedback on the performance issue. Ciao for now.

Fix: iPhone 3Gs Charging is not supported with this Accessory

Fix: iPhone 3Gs Charging is not supported with this Accessory

Everybody is getting frustrated looking for a fix for a glitch that iPhone is having with. Lots of iPhone users are complaining about getting an error while charging and this message will pop-up "Charging is not supported with this Accessory". What? It's not charging.

When I got this error while charging the iPhone 3Gs, I immediately search the internet if someone could be in the same shoe as I'm in and found out that I'm not the only one. I tried hard to look up for a fix and did several suggestions from the web but no to avail.

I got the dock and pins cleaned, even changed the wall charger and the cord, switched to USB charging and none of these worked out. So I concluded that there's no problem associated with the hardware. Until such time that I realized all this happened after I upgraded to the latest firmware (from 5.0.1 to 5.1.1). Dude, its a glitch on the software.

Wow, there are even suggestions that charging will work if Wifi is turned off and may be putting the phone in Airplane Mode. Some says it worked, some says not, and I said not to me neither. 

Oh boy, there is no really a fix for this until we wait for Apple to release a new firmware update.

But wait guys, may be there's no fix for this but I got this breakthrough. So don't lose hope because we still have that device get to work. Trust me. Still remember when I said that this problem is some kind of a glitch in the software, it's no hardware.

How? Here it is.

1. You got your phone plugged for charging and message pop-out saying "Charging is not supported with this Accessory", then let it be. Just leave your phone that way. (I just did it)
2. Observe. The battery is still charging even if there's the message saying about the error. The battery percentage is going up a little (this time we have a very slow charging mode). 
3. You'll certainly notice that the phone is charging, try to let it that way until the juice reached 20%. Unplugged and plug it again. By doing so, you'll have the normal charging again. Enjoy the charging again in a very normal way.

What's the catch? It's a software glitch. By the time your phone's juice reached below 20% (or may vary from other depending on the condition of battery), charging error is likely to occur. This is the case on my side.

From now on, I will not let my phone's juice go down below 20% or atleast.

Hope guys this one will work for you and let us know by leaving a comment.

But if you are a skilled hacker and knows how to hack, you can decrypt the security password. But by any chances, not all of us are genuinely good hacker for the hacking ability needs a complicated knowledge of programming skills. Worry no more because there's a standalone device now available that can easily decrypt the password of a secured WiFi. This device is called Rob WiFi.

And most WiFi adapters in the market and in laptops have a range of only 20 - 30 meters, limiting the number of WiFi connections available to you. But with the powerful Rob-Wifi, you can access more WiFi connections which are further away and the Rob-Wifi optimized the cracking of WEP encription that makes the hack more quickly. Best of all it can also decode, hack, crack, unlock and reveal the passwords of most of the secured connections.

iPad 2 Conquers the Market | 12 Things about iPad 2

Apple's iPad 2 is now out in the market and everybody wants to know what's new about this iPad 2. The fixes made to this and additional features will expect outdo the Android devices in the market. So lets check out the new features of iPad 2.

1. iPad 2 is lighter and thinner
Apple called it an all-new design. And it is. The main physical thing is that the new iPad is thinner - 33 per cent thinner, clocking it at 8.8mm. Incredibly, that's thinner than the iPhone 4 which clocks in at 9.3mm. It's also 15 per cent lighter, which is welcome. You wouldn't want it to be completely lightweight, but a bit less weight is good. It's also available in white as well as the original black.

2. The iPad 2 has FaceTime
The new iPad has the expected front-facing VGA camera (as well as one on the back). What's the point of the one on the back? Like the iPhone 4's rear snapper, it takes 720p video (though has no flash unlike other tablets). And that's enough for us.

3. The iPad 2 battery life stays the same
The iPad 2's battery life is apparently not limited by the new design - it has the same 10 hour battery life as before, with a month of standby time (tsk, real-world figures please). Still, that's quite impressive when you think about the reduced size of the unit.
Our colleagues at grabbed some video footage of the iPad 2 which you can watch below.

4. As does the iPad 2 display
The new iPad has a 9.7-inch display which, yep, is exactly the same. So the large-scale retina display wasn't ready as we suspected. iPad 3 should sort that one out.

5. iPad 2 goes dual-core
A few months ago, a dual-core processor would have made headlines. Now they're 10-a-penny and in many an Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet. The new processor is called the Apple A5 and is based on ARM's Cortex-A9 design. And it's probably clocked at 1GHz again.

6. iPad 2 graphics will be awesome
All Steve Jobs said was that the graphics capability would be 9x that of the current iPad. WOW! All he said? That promises serious gaming awesomeness (and it helps that the device now also has the gyroscope from the iPhone 4 and latest-gen iPod touch). The graphics will still be some version of Imagination Technologies' PowerVR SGX graphics technology.

7. iPad 2 has iOS 4.3
The latest version of iOS ships with the iPad and will be available for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch on 11 March. There's faster Safari browsing performance; iTunes Home Sharing and thankfully an enhancement to AirPlay. Let's hope it works now. (By the way, iPhone 4s can act as Wi-Fi hotspots too).

8. The stupid button problem has been fixed
When the first iPad came out, the switch on the side locked the orientation. Super cool, everybody thought. Except Apple did a typical Apple thing and changed it to become a mute button. When there was already a volume control on the other side of the device. iOS 4.3 gives you the choice about what to do. That's what happens when you listen to your customers. Thanks, Apple.

9. The iPad 2 has HDMI out
It will set you back around £30 for the cable, but you can connect your iPad up to the TV and charge it while doing so. What's more you can have HDMI Video Mirroring that lets you mirror your iPad screen on an HDTV. Cool for presentations and the like – or just playing movie content.

10. The iPad 2 features HSUPA
The iPad 2 also features HSUPA support. That means faster uploads over 3G. Like mobile broadband. It's only available on the iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G, naturally. Expect this to come to the iPhone in the next update too.

11. The iPad 2 UK release date is 25 March
Apple has announced that the Apple iPad 2 UK release date is 25 March. T-Mobile and Orange told TechRadar they are stocking iPad 2 "when it becomes available later this month". O2 told us it wouldn't be selling the new tablet but would be offering data plans for it, while Vodafone offered a stern "no comment". Thanks for the clarity there. As iPad 2 costs the same in the US as the original iPad, expect the models to start at £439 here.

12. iPad 2 sees Apple come out fighting
As well as some serious gnashing of teeth at competitors during Steve Jobs' keynote, even the press release gets nasty. "While others have been scrambling to copy the first generation iPad, we're launching iPad 2, which moves the bar far ahead of the competition and will likely cause them to go back to the drawing boards yet again." Unfortunately though, it's just not true. In terms of specs – if not looks – the latest Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets are a match for the new iPad.

Will Nikon D4 be the first Thunderbolt DSLR?

We just got word that the Nikon D4 will be the first DSLR to support Thunderbolt. The rumor became known a few weeks ago, but it wasn’t until the other part of the rumor (the new Macbooks) came out that the Nikon rumor appeared more valid.

You see, the rumor was that the Nikon D4 will be getting “Lightpeak” (now Thunderbolt) and that new “Lightpeak” computers were on the way (early 2011 Macbooks). This won’t mean too much for most people; but for those looking to shoot lots of HD DSLR video, especially in movie productions, this will be a nice feature.

Now the Macbook Pro comes packing Thunderbolt, it seems eminently possible that the Nikon D4 rumour will come to fruition to make it the first Thunderbolt DSLR. For folk shooting tonnes of HD video, a Thunderbolt-packing DSLR would be a dream. Let’s hope we get it!
