Micro SD Cards from The Zoo ?

By | July 30th, 2011|Categories: Mobile apps|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

Micro SD Cards from The Zoo ? Not the Zoo with animals in it but the Memory Card Zoo. I got an 8GB Samsung Microcard from here, for use in my Android tablet This company might not be an actual Zoo but they do have a strange claim - they say that these memory cards are indestructible Unbreakable  I'm not sure how you break a Micro SD card aside from drowning it in water or putting it in the microwave, but I didn't fancy trying that out with mine when I got it.  However they do say that these memory cards have amazing levels of durability, and they are water, magnet and shock proof.  I did sneak up on mine and shouted really loudly but it still works! But seriously... Digital Camera Essentials awarded them as the Editor’s Choice quoting the notable features include the 5/10 year warranty. Features Samsung Micro SDHC Class 4 memory card: Compatible with all SDHC labelled devices Magnetic and X-ray safe Shock Proof EMC coating - Water and Dust Proof Soft Rubber Casing Ideal for [...]

Say you are on a fan page website and you want to ask someone a question without having to post to a forum and having to wait for an answer, [...]

How to delete a blogspot or blogger blog.

By | July 24th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Blogger is google's free tool for bloggers to create their own blog website. It is very simple to set up and you can have many blogs using the same account. Blogger will host this blog on blogspot.com for free. (Which is the difference between Blogger and Blogspot by the way) Its very easy to use, mostly with guides and instructions. Adding pictures and videos is a breeze especially if you use Picasa/ Google Video or You Tube. All free... great huh? so.. Why would you want to delete your blog on blogger or blogspot? You haven't visited it for a year, even though you promised yourself you would write every week, no one is reading your blog or maybe Google just doesn't do it for you anymore and you want to start a fresh with another platform such as WordPress. For whatever reason, you want it gone, forever. Be aware, this isn't to show you how to export your blogspot blog or to keep any part of it, this is to permanently get rid of it.

By | July 23rd, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Double Whammy Scam today... First up  - Facebook There is a link appearing on twitter titled Omg Spider Under The Skin with a blogspot link, my friends have told me that they are seeing this so much on Facebook that it is getting annoying -  so its going viral - god knows why because as usual who on earth wants to watch that. ewww. Its a another survey scam ! It first takes you to an age verification page, when you click this it shares the page to all of your friends. Next, you will be taken to a survey that promises that you could win gifts if you take part, you don't, you just are paying the scammers for filling it out. If you have clicked this then, remove all evidence of it on your news feed, and put out an apology saying it is fake, so no one else clicks it.  Then check your likes page and remove it from there, and I'd even change your password to be on the safe side. If in doubt - DON'T CLICK ! Twitter - [...]

At last iTunes has a Google+ App for Apple iPhone !

By | July 19th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

  The Google+ app has arrived for iPhone!  Since the Android app was launched for Google plus, we Apple users on Google+ have been patiently waiting (for a couple of weeks!) for an iTunes application, although to be fair it was pretty good using Safari. As far as I know Apple has had it for over a week for approval. Finally it is available for 3G, 3GS and iPhone 4 - Nothing for the iPod Touch, or the iPad available yet! I couldn't actually find it via the App Store from the iPhone yet  (it is appearing now under realease date) however Download Google+ for iPhone here using itunes   http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/google/id447119634   This is a free application and it will be interesting to see, what it will creep up to in the free application charts and how long it will take. Be aware, as I did find another application created by someone else that was 69p   Message recieved on - Google+ via iTunes from +Punit Soni  We discovered an issue with the version of the iPhone Google+ App that was on the [...]

Hackers Lulz security are back with vengeance as The Sun knows #lulzsec

By | July 19th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , |

  It wasn't long ago we heard from Lutz security that their 50 days of disruption had ended.  However last night we saw them back in action as they first put a redirect on The Sun newspapers page saying that Murdoch was dead, after that the link went straight to @lulzsec feed on Twitter. The first we knew that it was them was a little message from @lulzsec twitter account saying ... After that everyone on Twitter was talking about it, as they are now.  We followed the story on The Next Web, with continuous updates - The sun newspaper hacked. News international soon went down, and Lutz security then went on say this is just the beginning. One tweet said - WE HAVE JOY WE HAVE FUN, WE HAVE MESSED UP MURDOCH'S SUN. At the end @lulzSec tweeted   So it looks like retirement didn't last long ...........            

Warning! Twitter Scam – Is this blog about you?

By | July 16th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

There is another Phishing scam going around Twitter.  This is similar to the "Is this you in this picture"  and "Is this you in this video" You get a DM asking Is this blog about you with a link - here is the one I revived today. People are saying that when you click the link it takes you to a twitter log in page, it then takes over your account and sends out DM's to your friends from your twitter account. Think before you click! The danger is that these DM's are from friends and you don't think about it when you click as you wonder - ooh am I featured in a blog? If you have clicked on this, you need to change your password immediately and try to warn the people that you have DM'd not to click the link.  I sent a message to the above account to tell this this is happening, as that is the other problem, you don't actually realise right away that it is happening. Update - I've also received the "This gotta be you in [...]

Microsoft Social Network – Whoops we didn’t mean to, honest.

By | July 15th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , |

It seems that Microsoft is launching its own social networking site called Tulalip on socl.com - it appeared on the net and was quickly whipped off again. Reports are saying that it was "unintentionally" leaked. Strangley enough you can sign in via Facebook or Twitter - no mention of Google+ though. So maybe its not in competition with the social networks but somehow working along side them as a social search engine, in connection with Bing. Caption reads.  With Tulalip you can Find what you need and Share what you know easier than ever. Soon however that was gone, and is now replaced with..... How funny, what do you make of it?
