Mobile Devices / Re: BlueStacks Android emulator for windows.
« on: November 28, 2014, 01:53:21 AM »
If you did get it on TPB, you really didn't need to. Pretty popular, and the performance is decent. I just don't care enough about android to run an emulator, haha.

I downloaded the one directly from the site and its a bit different. It has bloatware and you need to tinker around to get rid of the bloat a bit. Also the version takes longer to install as it downloads some files as its installing and then does a "android is upgrading" for a little bit too. Also the site version does not have a superuser app but appears to be rooted as I tried 2 root checker apps and both said its rooted but I didn't get any message about allowing them root access so I don't know if it really is or not. The version I got is just simple to install and comes with some needed apps built in.
I will try the genymotion and see how it works. I just want to use it for some apps that are not available on windows and some that are just too huge on windows. Ever since I got the first smartphone in the last days of 2013 I been enjoying the small and useful apps that google play has to offer.

I got this program a while back and I honestly don't remember from where but probably piratebay. Anyway I can share the install file on dropbox if anyone wants it. Its pretty cool and a good way to use android on windows. It is running Android 4.4.2. It supports most apps except the ones that need gps or the accelerometer or other similar sensors. Installing APKs is as simple as double clicking them from your windows folders. It comes pre-rooted and even has titanium backup pro and a few other pro apps.  Here is some screenshots.

Tv channels... hmm well ok but seriously tho share some of those "tv channels" because chances are they are the ones without all the chemicals and Rubbermaid crap that fills "tv channels" now XD

I would like to get it working to stream free tv channels and my buddy with the same exact Nexus 7 tablet wants to watch live soccer games on some sites that stream flash. Porn is better on big screen so i will not watch it on the 7 inch Nexus LOL.

It seems that flash player is no longer supported on Android. I need flash to watch flash streaming videos on some sites and can't get t to work. I went to Adobe and got the latest available one (11.1) and it installed it manually but chrome and websites do not see it installed and even went to a Adobe flash test page and does not work. Anyone knows how to install it on 4.4.4 and have it actually work?

Is it worth giving them my credit card # for a 25$ media player?

good to know. I wont bother with them then. They had a HTC EVO 4G on their site for $25 and I was going to buy it and try them. But now that I you told me I dont think its unlockable as its sprint without sim.

I dont remember exactly when this happened but a while back Microsoft was giving away Media Center Pro edition of windows 8 and the weird thing was that it let you install it on a volume license key which is the most common way of installing any windows version. But what makes this cool is that after the Media center add on is installed it gives you a legal and unique key so next time I need to reinstall I just use that key and the Media Center Pro version of Windows 8 installs. there was a promo for a limited time so I jumped on it.

have you checked to see if you have some app hogging your cpu? I have the app battery doctor and it shows what apps use the most battery and maybe you can find out with that which one uses most battery could be the one that slows down too.

I mostly say that because my currwnt phone is slow if I have FB installed and some other apps that always stay running. I honestly think my stress level went down since I have the tablet. I no longer want to smash my phone into the ground as I mostly use it for calls and wifi tethering. Also now I don't even have to turn on my computer in the morning before work as I can use the tablet for the things I used to boot up my pc for which includes email, youtube, read the news and check weather. Oh and this tablet doesnt have any bloatware. There is nothing on it that I wish I could remove. Well except Google+ and Hangouts which I don't use but it wants to run in ram all the time.

I have a feeling that they may be having many returns on this. Now I just hope it lasts. If not then I lost about $40

Asus Nexus 7 2013 edition. Before I go any further I must admit that once I started playing around with it I now don't understand how I lived without one for so damn long. This thing is pure performance with visual quality higher than any Retina display Ipad. 7 inch screen with 1920x1200 resolution and a quadcore 1.5ghz, 2GB ram, gps, 2.4/5ghz N WIFI and Bluetooth 4.0. One thing I would like to have more of is flash storage. After the OS (Android 4.4.4) takes its space I only have left about 11 gigs. Not a big deal as I will not be storing a crap load of media on it. The best part of this tablet was the price. $130 on ebay with free shipping. It's a refurbished model but when I received it it looked brand new with no scratches anywhere and no finger prints. Also it's just small enough to fit in my work pant pocket so I have it with me all day and when I get my breaks and lunch I have quick access to it.

My current MVNO, GoSmart has modified one of their plans so I jumped on it. It used to be $45/m with unlimited talk, text and data with 5GB of 3G data then the rest at 2G (Edge). New plan is the same except costs $40/M and 3GB of 3G. This past month I used up 500MB of 3G in 8 days while tethering my phone to my new Nexus 7 tablet so I think I should be ok with the $40/m plan. I don't stream music/video much so I'm not too worried about using up the 3GB fast. And since I work now I can afford $5 more per month. Makes sense? Anyone know of something better that has no contract and works just by swapping a sim card?

Update! After receiving the card I ordered I had no luck getting it to work. Drivers installed correctly but then I was getting some weird error message when I did the Intel diagnostics. Called Intel and they wouldn't help!!!!!!!!!! Pricks told me that the card was OEM and it was only sold to computer manufacturers. This is really disappointing to me that a huge company like Intel would just blow me off like that. Anyway after a several days trying different drivers and research looking up the problems people had with this card I decided to contact Amazon to exchange it. Well, Amazon did not accept exchanges for this particular product so I had to ship it back to them. They gave me a prepaid shipping label so it was no problem. Once I saw that the refund was posted I researched some more and stumbled upon a site that basically said these cards are great IF you get one that works. HAHAHA. So I decided to order another from the same place and they were right, this one worked! I have not tested it with AC networks as My router does N max but I am happy so far. Haven't really played with the bluetooth 4.0 that also comes on the card but I did try my bluetooth mouse and that worked. So I guess there may be a high failure rate on these cards and that's why they are selling for so cheap.

I know why they do this. They jack up the price whenever they are out of stock. They probably setup the listing with 2000 units available for example and they only stock a small amount. When they run out of stock they edit the listing to change the  price to one noone will every buy at and that way they save on re-listing fees. They have one listing practically forever.

I hope this card will work when I get it. Some people were mentioning that the bios would not allow the card to work in their laptop.
