  • Cyanogen here to stay albeit a tad more homely

    While the last couple days have been full of Android home brew drama centering around Cyanogen and the smackdown Google's law department were set to hurl at him, it appears as if we can all breathe a sigh of relief. While the worst case scenario had Cyanogen completely shut down, we can all be thankful that he and Google came to a rather peaceful though ultimately ridiculous solution -- from here on out, Cyanogen mods will be bare bones. Users of said ROM's will be able to talk, text, etc. o...

    Why Palm neglected to add a landscape keyboard throughout when they have watched Apple get chastised relentlessly over the last two years for the very same thing is beyond me. But, have no fear, average joes, you can take your destiny into your own hands. Those of you worrying about jailbreaking, hacking, or any other involved methods that are more often than not frowned upon can throw those worries out the window. All that is needed to access the landscape keyboard in the email application...

    With all the excitement surrounding Windows Mobile 6.5, many developers will move onward leaving pre WinMo6.5 builds in the dust as they try to embrace the future.  Unfortunately, becoming outdate in the gadget world is something that can happen literally overnight.  However, thanks to "Da_G" from raphael forms and "dsi76", pre WinMo 6.5 users can now reap one of the small benefits of 6.5 all while staying within the cozy if not grossly outdated pre 6.5 enviorments.  Interested parties ca...
  • Turn that AMD Phenom II X3 into the quad core you’ve always dreamed of

    If you have an AMD Phenom II X3 laying around, today is the day to unlock its true potential.  Seems as if the X3's are really just  quad core with one of its cores maimed.  However, if you are fortunate enough to have certain motherboards (korean), a Biostar mobo, or a Bios with the option of "Advanced Clock Callibration", you can restore life back to that lifeless core of yours.  The process is actually quite simple.   Under the Advanced Clock Callibration screen, switch the setting ...

    Do you use Google Reader?  Are you tired of the standard look?  I really wish Google would implement themes into Google Reader like they've done with Gmail.  It would really add a nice touch to the versatile feed reader.  Now before you get too excited take note that it does involve some file moving and terminal.  So, if getting down and dirty with Leopard behind the scenes isn't your thing, look else where.  For the full rundown of specific instructions broken down by browser, head on...
  • Completely turn of UAC in Windows 7…throw out the welcome mat and beg the hackers to come in.

    One of Vista's many complaints was the UAC.  Just about everytime you make any change you were prompted to enter your password, a miniture hassle.  However, in Microsoft's attempt to appease their quickly defecting customers, they've made UAC in Windows 7 less obtrusive as well as changing stuff under the hood.  In 7, it is now possible to write a script that completely shuts UAC off.  "Awesome" you shout as you jump up and down.  Get a tissue because soon after you shut if off, you wi...

    In crawling the internet I came across a very interesting (though probably illegal) how-to on how to hack the road signs and make them display whatever you want to say.  Cool...Until you get arrested.  So, continue on at your own risk to learn the quick and easy way to spread your message to the world.
