It happened again: The sequelNAyK

Sun, 02 Mar 2014 19:21:07 +0000

My previous post was filled with the excitement I felt while experimenting with custom ROMS for the phone. Sadly, the excitement was short-lived as I had to revert back to Samsung’s Official Galaxy S3 ROM. This was mainly because the CyanogenMOD camera kept crashing. I tried other Custom ROMS too… AOKP, Paranoid and PacMan (for […](image)

It happened again! Several years ago, when I installed my first linux distro above a Windows (XP) platform, I saw the computer come alive, and fill me with wonder. The same feeling came to me, when few days ago I installed my first Custom ROM.  I had been reading about Custom ROMs for a while, […](image)

Best Android Apps for Children: 5 year old girlNAyKandroid_logodrseusssubwaysurferbeachbuggycloudsandsheepspymouse

Children and tablets is a controversial topic. Mostly it feels wrong to let a child be unsupervised for long periods over any media, whether it is television or tablets. However, the reality is that parents tend to use gadgets as babysitters… and honestly… (sadly)… so have we. We have however tried to prevent too much […](image)

Repenting from Android piracyNAyK

Sat, 08 Dec 2012 18:15:11 +0000

OK I admit it, and I’m sorry. (And I really hope there’s no liability here). I got an Android tablet (Sony Tablet S) half a year ago, and after the few free games, I found a bunch of pirated apps that were especially useful to stop ads from popping up especially when my daughter was […](image)

Google Drive and TruecryptNAyKtruecryptGoogleDrive

Tue, 28 Aug 2012 11:02:10 +0000

For a while I have been struggling with a particular problem using Google Drive and I can’t seem to find a solution. The scenario I am facing is this: I want to install Google drive into a Truecrypt encrypted drive. However, I find that Google Drive does not allow me to install on any Truecrypt […](image)

Why I chose Android (over the iPad/Apple OS)NAyKandroid_logo

Sat, 12 May 2012 09:04:45 +0000

This post is a long ramble about why I chose a Tablet with the Android operating system over the Apple’s operating system. My pro-Android biases are evident. But I am NOT being paid or supported or encouraged by any Android or Sony affiliated organisation. When the ipad came out, I wanted one. But it was […](image)

I can’t believe how long it has been since I last post. Actually I can believe it. I was busy. Full stop. Now I’m back. But only just. I bought a new laptop (HP Probook), I have Windows 7 Home Premium installed. But I am hesitating to install openSUSE 12. I don’t know why. Earlier, […](image)

TrueCrypt on Linux (Ubuntu)NAyKTruecryptOnUbuntu

Sat, 05 Feb 2011 21:01:31 +0000

I’m in a security phase… encrypting everything. Working with Windows, TrueCrypt is an excellent solution. However I wanted to see how encryption would work on my Linux distro Ubuntu 10.10. Downloading TrueCrypt was easy… if you know what to select. I selected standard 32bit. Installation was a little more tricky. As I wasn’t sure what […](image)

Every list is subjective. Even this one. But if you knew my history with Ubuntu, you’d share my excitement with this latest Ubuntu 10.1o (Meerkat) release. It is really easy/fun to use. Makes me remember my PCLinux days, when things just worked. I really am surprised with how functional this Ubuntu really is. Currently, it […](image)

Ubuntu is finally working on my computer! Ubuntu 10.10 ReviewNAyKubuntu_logowine-logoUbuntu Screenshot

It is with absolute delight that I report that for the first time ever, on my desktop, an Ubuntu distro is finally working. I’ve always struggled with Linux distros on my via-(integrated graphics)-chipset. Hardly any distro, apart from PCLinux and Mandriva detected my VIA hardware. Previously, all the Ubuntu distros I tested would have a […](image)
