I was at Silver Lake last week with my wife and my good friend. It was first time I was without wireless connection for more than couple of hours. It was no problem as I have 3G connection, but my friend wanted to share some multimedia files with me and for some reason Bluetooth wasn’t working (as usual, it says everything is okay but won’t accept files) so I came up with a crazy idea which actually worked: I have tethered my 3G connection with him, making my phone Wi-Fi Access Point. Once he connected to my wireless network I have started Airdroid and gave him my local (access point) IP address which, in most cases, should be 192.168.43.1
After that, we’ve had files of about 15 Mbytes transferring within seconds! From his Android phone mobile browser!
I’ve just got brand new Samsung Google Nexus S phone few days ago, and I’m simply loving it. It has 1GHz Cortex A8 processor and 345 MB of RAM memory although the official phone page (linked above) says it has 512 MB. I have no idea why this difference appears. Storage capacity is 1GB of internal memory plus 16 GB of external memory which is actually internal memory as this phone does not have SD card slot, but additional 16 GB memory unit integrated.
As soon as I started the phone for the first time it automatically downloaded Android 2.3.6 update and by now I’ve manually upgraded Market application to the latest version and installed GO Launcher Ex, (Go Contacts and Go SMS Pro, just to suit the look of these frequently used apps with my launcher), and lots of games, of course, as well as few social networking apps.
Everything runs smoothly and I love using it. However, as I’m playing with it very often the battery drains out really quickly (lasts about 8 hours), but I hope it’ll last longer once I stop jacking the Gun Bros all day long :)
The in-call volume is so loud that someone near me could hear the other side talking and understand it pretty well… so I had to turn the in-call volume down. And speaker is so loud I can listen music without headphones without any hassle. Headphones are good, but I’m not sure how long will they last. It also has two cameras (front and back), and the main (back) camera has 5MP resolution and flash light. The image quality of photos is great!
As you can see on these screen shots (first image), my final exam work (InterestingFacts.org Android application) can finally run on my phone. It’s already finished, I just need to write documentation for it and I’ll be ready to graduate! And soon after that the application should appear on Market.
Novak Đoković (SRB) is new King of Tennis.
By defeating Rafael Nadal (ESP) today, Novak has fulfilled his two greatest dreams – he has won his first Wimbledon and he has become number 1 on ATP list. Ok, not by defeating Nadal, he was 1st when he defeated Tsonga (FRA) and made it to the finals (officially he is not 1st yet, but will be as of Monday), but who cares for the details anyway – he has won his first Wimbledon and become no. 1 in just 3 days ;)
My name is Nemanja and I’m soon to be bachelor of computer science (Internet technologies), currently preparing for my final exam. It will be some kind of Android application, but I still need to think of something which actually does not exist on Market. I live in Belgrade, Serbia.
I’m also in PHP development since my high school and I think I’m pretty good at it. Time will tell. My friend Toma and I run a small web site called CubeScripts.com where we sell our PHP scripts, but I actually spend more time on college so once I finish it (in this year I hope :-)) I intend to commit most of my site to Cube Scripts.
I will write here both about my personal and my professional life, but I’ll try to keep focus on software development.
