Android and Persian

I have recently become obsessed with a thought. It is question really. Why is it after three years Android does not show Persian or Arabic script. If you are on an Android phone go to and look at the boxes in articles reading from right to left.

And I commented here

Dell Venue Pro with Android

You have to love this phone. It is basically designed to meet the practical (portait slider) and all the Android market. Now can they just not spoil it with their own software on top. Leave it to the user to find the Home theme they want, and customize their phone they want. Write a software that asks them where they want to put their stuff. And then for goodness sake put a decent battery and a camera in it (8 megapixels please). Finally see if you can make it work with Blackberry messenger as well as all the others. Now that would really be great.

Blogging from HTC Wildfire with a sandwich

I just downloaded free copy of Blogger Android from the Android Market and I am taping this message with my left thumb on the HTC Wildfire. So yeah your other hand is free.

There are such amazing software for this little phone. I went I got a cool metal case from pdair as well.

What this package does, that no other phone does, is that without jail breaking I can put an ADW theme in it, and it and will allow me to put an app customized to the size I want.

Glasses-Free 3D TV Display Using Integral Imaging

How long before one of these ends up in on Amazon or the Argos catalogue? If the recession continues, then it might not be long.

Toshiba has demonstrated a naked-eye 3D display that uses integral imaging, allowing 3D images to be seen from 9 distinct viewing angles without the need for 3D glasses. Integral imaging produces several rays of light projected at different angles, allowing users to see the 3D images without the need for 3D glasses and will apparently cause very little eye fatigue.

Amazing performance from a car

As I said in the previous post this is the form of transport that will move us humans forward big time.

in reference to:
"But this is no golf buggy. The smart fortwo electric drive has an electronically limited top speed of 62 mph and can cover up to 70 miles between charges, which typically take around 8 hours for a full charge. At average city speeds of around 30 mph, its range extends to 138 miles. And it can accelerate from 0-38 mph in just 6.5 seconds."

SMART is seriously smart

I have a normal mhd version, and it is great for basic commuting. It feels great when you are alone on the road with others who are in their big fat ugly smokey cars.

in reference to:

"Due to go into full series production from 2012, the smart fortwo electric drive runs exclusively on electricity, can achieve the equivalent of 300 mpg and produces zero emissions."

King Android

The new kid on the block, is now King. And for me HTC Wildfire is the best one so far. It is so customizable and free.

in reference to:

""A non-exclusive strategy that produces products selling across many communication service providers (CSPs), and the backing of so many device manufacturers, which are bringing more attractive devices to market at several different price points, were among the factors that yielded its growth this quarter," said Carolina Milanesi, a Gartner research VP, in a statement."

Sony NEX-5

Incrdible ISO of 12800 really makes this a camera to take anywhere.

iPhone 4G = Skype Video Mobile

see also internal pictures

As a person who likes to take a camera with a phone in it, it is good to see that Apple has not forgotten us.  But seriously folks, the photo capability of the Satio still kicks all iPhones to touch.

No phone is perfect, and I like the iPhone 4G because it is narrower and thinner, and to me it is more of a Skype machine that will work.

So this is the first Skype mobile that will work properly. Maybe a video call will work properly for a change anywhere for once, such that any non-geek can operate it easily.

4G video calling, here we come.

Touchscreen and Google Chrome

I have always been a great fan of Google Chrome. I have unfortunately a bad hand, and touch screen has come to my rescue. Now it is really weird, but you can't flick, pinch do all that stuff you do on an iphone on Chrome in my new touch screen pc.  I the latest Dell SX2210T running on Windows 7 Pro with an i5 processor that scores seven on the windows experience index.

So come on Google sort it out. Make touch screen modules for searching so that we can search more easily etc. I am sure they are onto all this, with their new tablet etc platform. But why don't they release something for the PC touch screen users.

Beware of promos and make money on gadgets

I just came across this ad, and there many more. We all know about PR, and the "subtle ways" corporates like to make a review look genuine. So here you are. Review one and get paid for it.

Update on Sony Ericsson Satio

I have now had the Sony Ericsson Satio now for a few months. I must admit, to me it is more of a camera and a video camera than a phone. I have bought a leather cover for it, and I feel I have everything I need in one pocket. I cannot remember the last time I used my other cameras. All you need is a good internet connection like Vodafone, and with Picassa and YouTube you can take and put it away neatly.

The fact that I can have four different browsers in it is nice. The best one is Skyfire, then Opera 10, then Bolt. The one Sony has only works when the phone starts. Once the cache is filled, it stops.

The software that Sony provide can be confusing, but the free copy of photoshop lite is nice. I usually send the photos via email but synching is good too. Contacts can be synched with Funambol or Roadsync (which asks for money after a while). Google sync does not have this version for Symbian still. Sony do provide OTA synching but it does not put the inbox above the other folders.

The only thing that Sony should have put in would be a tracker ball to be able to scroll around the pages without using ones fingers. Otherwise the menus are great. I love the fact that the centre button will tell you which programs are running. By far the best app is Snaptu.

Oh boy, everyone will have to upgrade their PCs

This piece of Cisco news tells you a lot. TV is out. Internet TV will rule. We will all be TV producers, as everyone will upload great stuff for all to see. Gone are newspapers, and normal TVs. Yippeee! Better save up for all the new gadgets to deal with this new system.
