Get Firefox Boot-2-Gecko up and running

There are two more players that are trying to enter the mobile OS space: Firefox, and Ubuntu. While the latter is making the move for more native applications to run faster on phones, the former is trying to take page out of WebOS’ playbook by going the pure HTML5 route. I had a chance to install the Firefox OS recently on a Nexus S and…

Why the Low Res on the iPad Mini?

If you read many of the blogs out there, there are lots of people bashing the iPad mini for its lower resolution screen. This is primarily Apple’s own fault for spoiling us with Retina displays on everything, but there is a good reason for it. Since the mini was (suppose to be) a top secret project with no pre announcements and no developers having time…

Google’s Got Nothing on Apple

I’ve been reading some articles recently, comparing Apple’s productions to Google’s Nexus line, and it just seems bizarre to me. It just reminds of when AMD had come up with the first true multi-core processor and was trying to educate us not to compare its processors to Intel’s on just the CPU speed. Its the same thing here. Comparing Apple to Google, is quite literally…

Cleanup Your Open With Context Menu in OSX

Recently I noticed that I had many duplicate entries in the Open With context menu on my Mac (Mountain Lion). Then after a clean re-install, I noticed the same behaviour repeating. For example, I had three entries for Even Note. Well, a little googling lead me to this link with this magic command to reset the menu and clean it up. /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/\ LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -kill -r…

Securing your Mail Server

I recently noticed some bounced emails from a domain I managed and upon further inspection found out that someone is sending spam emails using random spoofed email addresses from that domain.  At first I thought one of the email accounts was  jeopardized but when I saw the bogus from address, I knew it was just spam abuse that would not end well for the true…

The Curious Case of the Missing YouTube App

Yesterday Apple released the  latest beta version of iOS6, and with that the blogosphere went a little crazy over conspiracy theories as to why the YouTube app is no longer part of iOS.  There were lots of speculations, but I think the case is clear cut.  It had much less to do with the history between Apple and Google, and much more to do with…

Is Mountain Lion Worth The Upgrade? (Updated)

OSX Mountain Lion was released yesterday and it brings with it many new features and add-ons which is a great offer at $20 for the upgrade, but there are a few catches: You have to have a relatively recent Mac to get all the features.  For example, AirPlay screen sharing is only available if you have an early 2011 Mac Book Pro or later. You…

Feed Your Sweet Tooth With Jelly Bean!

Google Now

The Jelly Bean (4.1.1) update for the Nexus S is finally here. I got the update notification yesterday and I must say that Google has done a tremendous job of turning things around with Android 4.x. Even though the Nexus S is now and old phone by all standards, it is snappier now on Jelly Bean than it ever was with its original Android Gingerbread…

Configure Witopia VPN on DD-WRT

I like using a VPN service for a more secure browsing experience and I have used Witopia for the past little while with great success. The only issue was that I had to install it on all the PCs that I wanted to use it with and then remember to turn it on, etc which I did not like very much. So after a decent…
