Android 2.2 Tablet

My first Android 2.2 Tablet PC – IMX515

Ever since the Apple iPad came out I have wanted to get my hands on a touchscreen tablet PC. The iPad just wasn’t an option, the most basic one costing £439!   I kept telling myself that I didn’t even need a tablet pc, what with already owning an iPhone and iTouch and a desktop PC but I kept looking at pictures of them and thinking well, I haven’t got a laptop. I was keeping an eye on the budget tablets but they all seemed to have worse specs than the basic cheapo netbook so I played the waiting game. […]

Facebook increase security after hacking?

Maybe its no coincidence that Facebook recently announced some new security just after Mark Zuckerberg’s personal fan page was evidently hacked. However, for whatever reason, better security on Facebook is always a good thing. Hypertext transfer protocol secure Firstly from today they say on the Facebook blog posted on 26.1.11. you’ll be able to experience Facebook entirely over HTTPS  –  It might be a good idea to turn this on (as always we have to turn it on rather than off)  this especially if you are accessing Facebook on free WiFi – like at coffee shops, airports and other public places.  […]

Nokia N8 – Can’t Connect To Gateway – My solution.

This wasn’t the first blog about the Nokia N8 that I expected to write after WomWorld/Nokia sent me a mobile phone to trial, so I can review. However even though I’m slightly embarrassed that I took a while to work this out, I thought this little post might help others. When I first got the Nokia N8 2 days ago I didn’t have much time to have a look at it, I did have a little look around put in my passwords and logged in to some accounts, and it all seemed fine including Twitter. Yesterday when I returned home from work to have […]

Problems with Google Chrome?

You are surfing away, googling some interesting sites when all of a sudden, Chrome starts to say This web page not available and you check the error message and it says……… Error 10 (net::ERR_ACCESS_DENIED): Unknown error.HUH!  Well … …this doesn’t appear to be a problem with Chrome but it seems as if it is either a firewall or anti virus blocking access,  lots of people with Mcafee have this problem. So make sure its approved or allowed in the settings. Or like me – I’d left Peer Guardian running and it really hates that and blocks Chrome opening some pages […]

Facebook Allowing Apps To Access Users Phone Numbers and Addresses (update – not cancelled)

When you are going to allow a Facebook application now you might see this … … as Facebook has now allowed developers access to your private information. As announced on the developers blog page on Saturday here.   See updated information at the end.  As you see can see its not only allowing the application access to your basic information but also your current address and mobile phone number.
