Rooting the Samsung Galaxy S3….

Rooting the Samsung Galaxy S3….

Ok, firstly this post is only applicable to UK users of the S3, with a model number S3 I9300. Please, if you’re in the US with a T-Mobile, AT&T, VERIZON, or SPRINT VERSION of the Galaxy S III this post isn’t suitable for your handset and you’ll encounter problems should you attempt to root it and possibly brick the handset. There are other posts I’ve seen suited to these devices. A simple Google search should yield some resources.

Six or so months ago, I got the Samsung Galaxy S3 on a 2 year contract with the UK provider, Three network. It’s great I love it and I was happy with the current user privileges as most users are until more recently having read the benefits or performing a root on the device (namely ridding my handset of Bloatware and the after root use of removable storage through USB which doesn’t require an app).

Apple and their carelessness in Foxconn

My water damaged iPhone and the repair….

Water and iPhone don't mixA few weeks ago I commented on Twitter (which i have since left) and Facebook about how I was unfortunate enough to have my iPhone fully submerged in a swimming pool – long story but I was thrown in at a party during drunken antics!. I also read a similiar post of someone else as unfortunate. As a result, I thought the phone was lost. It was saturated after all and refused initially to switch on at all (I know I shouldn’t have attempted that straightaway) but hey you live and learn. Continue reading

Apple’s IOS 4.2 (4.2.1) software update….

Apple’s IOS 4.2 (4.2.1) software update….

It comes as no suprise Apple have finally updated the iPhone software to iOS4.2 as rumoured for their range but what is suprising, is the lack of improvements overall and peoples response to it. It’s been quite negative to say the least and the majority of consumers, from reading blogs and tweets, are feeling short changed and disappointed!. Android on the other hand, appears to be coming on leaps and bounds (even incorporating Flash support early on which I know is an ongoing issue with Apple), so it’s in Apple’s interests you’d think to develop (and keep users happy) at the same speed and maintain an argueable amount of competition for Android in this competitive market.

VoCal – voice reminder app for the Iphone……

It’s no news I like to blog iPhone apps. I use some daily and as I’ve said in previous posts, I like some moreso than others, especially the useful ones and this is one good example!. I’ll use it anyway. It’s been thought up I would say to compete with the Android market. As to my knowledge, thus far, the iPhone doesn’t have some of the voice capability apps that Android does, suprisingly (Google voice for example). They’re coming though. Well, this is a start and a good one too!. Ok, it’s only a simple personal voice reminder app but I think more apps like this are to come and best of all, this one is free. And we like freebies and very little in life is after all. voCal lite is available at iTunes, available to download here.. Continue reading
