  • As Samsung and Apple fight over designs stolen from Star Trek, I thought that it would be appropriate to throw this out there. It is a well known fact that alot of Steve Jobs inspiration came from Star Trek,  it is also known that the devices that brought Apple to the top are designed after props that regularly appeared in the hit show. So much innovation was inspired by this show, its a shame that things in the tech world are going the way they are. Companies are protecting their “IP”, squeezing for every dime they can, pointing fingers about how each other copied...

  • If you have a T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant, enjoy ROM’ing your phones and have been on XDA anytime recently, you have most likely come across the XDA thread about ICS Passion. I have been using this ROM since day one of BETA and have been properly impressed with Ice Cream Sandwich. I am no expert on building ROM’s or kernel’s, but aparently Neobuddy89 and Nelson are. Neobuddy had this Rom out with the quickness after the ICS source was released to the public, but although he is the man behind this ROM, he is absolutely not the only one due credit...

  •   The wait is finally over ladies, Samsung has finally had a proper leak of one of the U.S. Variants of the ever popular Galaxy S2 devices that the world has been blessed with for almost half a year. This may be an exciting time in life for you true geeks, but you are not nearly excited enough. I have seen the presentation for the PR and the device in person, and let me tell you, the processor and the screen are not what they were rumored to be. The phone in question is the Tmobile Dream 4G (previously referred...

  • Alright, forget what I wrote about netflix yesterday. Apparently netflix has gotten either a new version of their app up and ready for download on the android market, or whatever backend issues they might have been facing have been resolved. Funny stuff, its almost like the people that are working on the app are devs on XDA with their nightlies. I say so because the issues have been resolved lickity split. Which ever, This morning I deleted the apk and reinstalled fresh from the market. Launched it and it played nice. Here is a quick vid of the whole ordeal...

  • Yes, if you are rocking a Samsung Galaxy S device in the US, your wait for the Netflix app is finally over. Unfortunately it does not work.. You can download the application yourself from the Android market, but chances are that after you install it and login, it will force close without warning. So what is the fix? Haha.. You can head over to the XDA thread and try to figure it out, buy will end up dissapointed. The apk’s floating around will either not work whatsoever, or let you actually login but give you the infamous 1005 error when...
