How to Solve No Internet Connection Message on Google Android Market/Play
2012-04-23 22:33:00
One of the most annoying things happened to me yesterday on my Samsung Galaxy S smartphone: I’ve got a “no connection” error in the Google Market place and a few other Android apps I tried to run and check the Internet connectivity. It was really annoying, as some apps, including the browsed did work. Changing wireless routers didn’t work either, for some reason. So it was clear to me the problem lied with some settings related to Android. Searching all over the web for my problem didn’t seem to find a reasonable explanation. That’s when I’ve noticed the time and date ...Original article - How to Solve No Internet Connection Message on Google Android Market/Play

Small Monitors Could Increase Productivity Over Multi-Monitor Setups
2012-03-28 00:06:00
The more the merrier, right? It’s certainly my belief when it comes to multi monitor productivity, something that’s becoming very affordable today, as I’ve said when testing the GeChic OnLap external USB monitor, and it makes sense when you summarize everything to more pixels means more stuff on the screen, so you can work faster by not having to switch between apps. Well, it seems more monitors don’t always mean better productivity, as I’ve read in this article. It’s an interesting read that makes the point that more monitors or pixels encourage you to keep a visible Twitter client, IM ...Original article - Small Monitor s Could Increase Productivity Over Multi -Monitor Setups
Adobe Photoshop CS 6 BETA can be Downloaded for Free
2012-03-22 22:15:00
Adobe Photoshop is the name that comes into my mind when I’m thinking about “image editing”. It’s not the kind of software that everyone uses for two reasons: it’s complicated and very expensive. That doesn’t mean light versions or demos are not used by people throughout the world who are passionate about imaging. Photographers, art designers, web developers are using Adobe Photoshop and are waiting for the latest version. That’s why it comes as a surprise that Adobe launched Photoshop CS 6 beta as a Free download (link here, it’s around 1GB). This means Adobe is getting ready for the ...Original article - Adobe Photoshop CS 6 BETA can be Downloaded for Free

2012-03-21 19:14:00
We’ve been using Mini SIMs since at least 10-15 years, when the telecom industry made the shift from that credit card sized SIM cards, and it worked just fine. Apple changed things for the better in 2007 with the first iPhone , when the MicroSIM was introduced. Since then a few smartphones have implemented micro-SIMs but it’s not yet an industry standard in the sense of worldwide adoption. Things are about to change once again, with the introduction of Nano SIM, one third smaller than the current microSIM and one third of the total area of your normal Mini SIM.

New iPad 3 (2012) hands on, videos and first impressions
2012-03-18 20:54:00
Apple dominates the tablet market since the first introduction of the iPad, two years ago. I still remember the first reactions to the 10 inch slate, which were not that encouraging, and certainly didn’t prevision what was to follow: tens of millions iPads sold. Fast forward to 2012, when Apple still holds the majority in this new niche, but the Android competition is closing by fast.

I don’t know about you, but personally I’ve been using a laptop for work for the past couple of years, even if the price and performance difference could justify in some cases a desktop.

Microsoft LifeCam Studio 1080p HD Webcam: Pictures tell stories!

Pictures do tell stories. They have done that from the most ancient times when people tried to scratch cave’s walls in order to tell something about someone or just something else (like phenomena, for instance). Nowadays, we don’t scratch walls anymore; we post on Facebook, Twitter or YouTube. And that is why a webcam has become a useful tool of communication. The criteria in choosing one are mostly the following: autofocus, HD resolution, good sound and the list stops pretty much here.

Battery Life: The Next Big Smartphone Revolution

It seems as though smartphones are getting more powerful by the month. Manufacturers continue to push the envelope, producing devices that dazzle on all levels. There are already multiple dual-core processor devices on the market, and by next year we could see quad-core smartphones. Yet this isn’t a universal positive. While faster processor speeds will allow our devices to do more, they also drain batteries at increasing rates. This is a pretty large obstacle going forward, and it’s one that carriers and manufacturers alike will have to overcome. Contemporary smartphones already perform a number of functions.
