Why is my SIM not working with Galaxy S3?

posted Thursday, June 14th, 2012

If you have recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy S3 phone, then you are most probably having an issue inserting your SIM. It is too big! What you need is a micro SIM for your new phone. You can cut your current SIM down to size. You will find many tutorials on the net. However, it is much simpler to just order one from your service provider.

Facebook Pages: A Second Look at New Features

posted Monday, February 21st, 2011

Some of Facebook’s new features that have been rolled out for pages have been covered at Facebook Fan Page: New Layout and Features

However, there are a few tidbits not covered under that article. Here they are:

  1. Have you ever faced a situation where you were co-owner of a page and wanted your comments to be separated from other co-owners? Being the admin of a group, everyone gets to post as ‘page name‘. Pretty confusing for the visitors and fans as they won’t know who is who, if there are two or three of you answering on the same threads.

Best Barcode Scanner for Android: Creating and Scanning Barcodes

posted Friday, December 31st, 2010

Search for a barcode scanner application for Android and you will find everyone recommending Barcode Scanner.

I installed the application but it takes forever to scan a barcode. I tried it on the Android application barcodes and it will just sit there for 3-4 seconds trying to scan the barcode. The whole process reminds me of a not so great camera trying to focus in low light. more…

Critical Update for WordPress – Upgrade to 3.0.4 Now!

posted Thursday, December 30th, 2010

This is a direct quote from Matt Mullenweg:

we’ve fixed a pretty critical vulnerability in WordPress’ core HTML sanitation library, and because this library is used lots of places it’s important that everyone update as soon as possible.

As far as I can remember, this is the first time I have ever had them send me an email asking to upgrade asap so this is very important.

If you are using one of the later versions of WP, then the upgrade process is very simple. Just go to Dashboard: Updates and update automatically.

If this does not work for some reason, download WordPress. Upload all files other than the wp-content folder and the wp-config file in the root folder. I had to go via this route and ended up overwriting the wp-config file. Not a big deal but still a minor inconvenience.

This is the big boy of the first Windows Phone 7 handsets, sporting a 4.3 inch screen which the Taiwanese manufacturer has previously slapped on other entrants in the HD line including the HD2 and the Desire HD. Because of Microsoft`s enforcement of minimum system requirements the HD7 has a 1GHz processor and a five megapixel camera which can record video in 720p, so you can expect to see this similar base level of hardware specifications across many of the following mobiles. more…
