I've been meaning to post this for awhile now. I have an android Galaxy s Blaze. After the first couple of months of use, I started to have to recharge my phone during the day, even though I left my house with a full charge. I didn't think too much of it, I just figured that the battery was finally broken in. Anyway, A few weeks ago, I updated my ad blocker (adaway). I hadn't updated it in a while and I had only installed it a few months before (I've had this phone since 2013). Color me surprised...

Moving on

Posted 12-14-2011 at 09:20 PM by zaivala

Ubuntu left me and my old computer behind when they went to Unity. There is no driver for my computer, and it's too bloody difficult to install Gnome or anything else. Also, Karmic worked well on my old iron, Lucid less so... although some derivatives such as Puppy and Mint, based on Lucid, work fine.

Well, I finally upgraded my iron, but there wasn't money for a "real" computer. I now have an ASUS Eee PC 1215P, 1.5 GHz dual-core Atom. It came loaded with Win 7 HP... 32-bit,...

Oh Google how I <3 you ... and apparently you <3 me back. I just got my free Logitech Revue, compliments of the Google Developers contest. It couldn't have come at a more perfect time.

So last year I posted a blog about why my wife should let me spend our rent money on an android dev phone. Well as it turned out I ended up waiting a few months for my sprint contract to be up and jumped ship to Tmobile. Android is simply the best thing since sliced bread, it has everything I could need and then some. That being said there are multiple reasons why I rooted it.
