iPad 3: Collect all the rumors!

Do not miss her presentation of the new tablet of Cupertino. Let us see how the world will imagine the 'iPad 3.

We know that the intensity of media coverage around the iPhone 4s did not do well with the new Apple smartphone, too many expectations have left behind him a lot of disappointment.

We try to avoid the same mistake with the iPad 3, but it's hard not to dream. Flying low is expected to a simple technical upgrade.

Firstly ,the photo department:
  • 8-megapixel back camera
  • 1080p Video
  • HD Front camera for a decent FaceTime even with the tablet
Not too much effort for short, Apple should simply import the plant photo of 4s.
It was an improvement should also be up to the screen that should reach a higher resolution display with the Retina but not oversized, maintaining its about 9 inches in size, making life easier for users and developers.

If these characteristics are given almost certain to remain big question marks on which it's nice to fantasize:
  • Processor: at last we will see the new A6 quad-core which is seen among some trace codes of IOS 5.1?
  • Sensor: we know the megapixels are not the only factor that makes a camera more beautiful, but the sensor is critical, who knows that the larger the tablet allow a larger sensor that will impress most.
  • Thickness: more and more insistent voices they think of a millimeter longer just for new members but could also radically change the design.
  • Name: who said he will call iPad3? If improvements were to be counted maybe you will opt for an iPad 2s.

Better support Ext4 filesystem, an optimized TCP stack and support for thin provisioning in the Device Mapper are some of the most important news just released Linux Kernel 3.2 . The latest version of the kernel also brings with it a number of new drivers and improves, among other things, addressing cones graphics chips from Intel and NVIDIA hardware and wireless of devices Atheros and Broadcom. An update very rich, then, and I would recommend that you install on your Ubuntu.

Install the Kernel 3.2

Members i386 (32bit)
    mkdir ~/Scrivania/kernel

    cd ~/Scrivania/kernel

Problems updating Android 2.3.6 for Samsung Galaxy S2: how to fix?


The update to Android2.3.6 for the no-brand has been available for all terminals yesterday, Samsung Galaxy S 2. Unfortunately, according to what we read about, this update seems to bring problems to the WiFi, Bluetooth, inability to switch off the device, inability to access the settings of connectivity, excessive overheating, several blocks of the system and much more. The odd thing, though, is that not everyone has these problems. The reason? It seems that the terminals Galaxy S2 with HW 1200 will have problems once updated: only those with HW 1300, however, will have all the problems described above.

The 1200 hardware update without problems, the hw 1300 we planted! Verify that HW version you have with *#*#197328640#*#* and going Version Info -> HW Version -> Read HW Version. I hope to be useful!

Wifi Ubuntu slow? Here's the solution!

A couple of days my Linux distribution Ubuntu gave me some hassle with the wifi being too slow.

So I squeezed a little in front of the terminal and I found the solution to the problem.

The problem is the power saving mode that Ubuntu requires wifi cards or keys, blocking happens on some devices, so yes there is the energy savings but do not be so much more to go.

Solution:

To determine the problem I did this:

iwconfig
It seems to me this:
pclinux@pclinux-desktop:~$ iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

wlan0     IEEE 802.11bg  ESSID:”Sitecomxxxxx” 
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.412 GHz  Access Point: 00:0x:xx:xx:xx:xx 
          Bit Rate=54 Mb/s   Tx-Power=20 dBm  
          Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Power Management:on
          Link Quality=69/70  Signal level=-41 dBm 
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
Reading the Line Power Management on a beautiful read.

So now we have to turn off with:
sudo iwconfig wlan0 power off
If you notice that the speed increases, and then you definitely want to configure it:
sudo gedit /etc/rc.local
It opens the text editor and you have to insert the line
iwconfig wlan0 power off
before exit 0. Then save and exit. The next restart PC everything works properly.

Facebook Messenger Now available for Windows

After a long period of testing, that's great news for everyone! This is Messenger on Facebook for all those who have the Windows operating system (in particular to make it work requires at least Windows 7).

So now, everyone can start downloading the Facebook Messenger, An application to chat with their Facebook friends while you will see all the updates: is a bit 'a mix between the most used features of our beloved social networks in blue, namely, the bulletin board and simple chat section.

However, there are still many fixes and many improvements that the team at Facebook will perform on this Messenger, to perfect it, and because it is not possible with this application to start a group chat or send a video, because it is not yet available compatible with the Mac version, which greatly reduces the potential of what is still, in our opinion, a really useful tool.

Sony Nypon: the first Android without Ericsson

 
The recent announcement of the acquisition by Sony Ericsson is starting to produce its first fruit, even if, as is well known to insiders, the acquisition will be complete mid-year that has just started. Some images come from the network, and various rumors, discussing a new smartphone. The new device in question should be the Sony LT22, also known as Sony Nypon, And may represent a point of reference for the design of all future smartphone of Xperia range.

The design of the terminal is special, especially on edges, Which follows the lines already seen in tablet S1, S2 of Sony. According to our information, the phone will have a aluminum back cover and, like the Nozomi, a LED light strip on the bottom that illuminates the outline of the body, with three soft-touch keys. Under the body there is a hardware line with the current high-end Android.
 

The operating system is likely to initially be Android Gingerbread and then spend the last born at Google, or Ice Cream Sandwich. The display should be a multi-touch capacitive with a diagonal of, 4-inch and resolution qHD of 960 x 540 pixels. The processor, which will direct the operations of various devices, in all likelihood will be a ST-Ericsson NovaThor dual-core 1 GHz with a graphics card type Mali 400, The same present on the current Samsung Galaxy S II. The RAM will be 512MB and the 16 GB of storage. This device, moreover, also a camera with a Exmor R sensor 8-megapixel. In all probability, the smartphone will be presented at the next CES in Las Vegas, scheduled for this month.

Ubuntu: how to make a file or folder indelible and immutable

I do not know how many times have you ever accidentally delete a file or entire directories: A tragedy, right? If you do this manually, then you'll still find the trash files and folders ready to be restored, but if you are wrong to give a parameter to the command from the terminal rm (Which is there to remove file/directory), then the recovery is much more complicated. In order to prevent some of our important files or directories from being accidentally removed, changed or deleted, we can rely on chattr (change attribute), which has a parameter that is exactly our case, to prevent unpleasant incidents.


Making immutable/indelible a file

Open the terminal and type:
sudo chattr +i file_name
and the file "file_name" will become immutable. If instead you want to restore it, type:
sudo chattr -i file_name
Making immutable/indelible a folder

Open the terminal and type:
sudo chattr -R +i folder_name
and the folder "folder_name" become immutable. If instead you want to restore it, type:
sudo chattr -R -i path_of_the_directory
All very simple and useful, do not you think?

At this point, just start Ubuntu Tweak and go to Tweaks and click Theme
