12/07/2011, Amazon’s Kindle Fire received the CyanogenMod 7 ROM not too long ago, but if CM7 isn’t your thing or if you were more interested in Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the good news is that a developer on the XDA forums is currently working on porting Ice Cream Sandwich over onto the Kindle Fire tablet.
11/22/2011, So you just splurged on a new smartphone, but now that you’ve seen the Amazon Kindle Fire you can’t help but wish you saved for that instead. Well not to worry because it seems that a way has been discovered by XDA forum members that would allow you to transplant the Kindle Fire onto the original Samsung Galaxy Tab.
10/21/2011, Earlier today we reported that the Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 SDK was ported over to the Nexus S 4G, but for those still on their Nexus One handsets, it looks like porting Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 over to your device may not be such a ludicrous idea after all, based on the video below.
10/21/2011, The Ice Cream Sandwich SDK has been released, so you can brace yourself to be on the receiving end of a bunch of SDK-based ROM ports, although not all of them are guaranteed to work 100% in every way. It seems that Beezy’s labor of love has resulted in the Nexus S 4G being the first non-Galaxy Nexus smartphone to run Ice Cream Sandwich – unofficially, of course. Bear in […]
10/19/2011, Siri is what sets the iPhone 4S apart from the iPhone 4, and it appears that there are some who are wondering why Siri wouldn’t be able to work on the iPhone 4 or the iPad 2. A week ago we reported that porting Siri over to the iPhone 4 would be equivalent of piracy, but that has not stopped iOS developers from attempting to port it over anyway. The […]
07/01/2011, When Crysis was first introduced to the PC back in 2007, it was notoriously famous for bringing even the best gaming rigs down to their knees. For many years it remained the go to game when it came to testing out the performance of a computer’s graphic capabilities. Well it’s now 2011, and technology has come a long way since then. Crysis 2 was released recently, and while it came […]
06/24/2011, Ever wished you could play your favorite Xbox 360, Windows or Windows 7 games on your iOS device? Well that may all become a reality thanks to a programmer named Andrew Russell. He is developing ExEn, an open source software that allows developers to port games created with XNA to platforms such as iOS and Silverlight. As if the iOS platform didn’t have enough games already, with ExEn it’s going […]
06/20/2011, Everyone knows that Microsoft did try to break the iPod’s dominance with their Zune portable media player, but failed miserably in the attempt. You can’t really fault the hardware at all, since it has proved to be rather solid in nature alongside some rather robust software, but at the end of the day, public opinion remained with Apple’s darling, so that’s that. Still, Microsoft isn’t going to let the Zune […]
06/10/2011, Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 app store, the Windows Marketplace, has been growing at a tremendous rate since it was introduced last October, and this year it looks like it might just explode. Back in April, Microsoft released some developer tools for developers to port iOS apps over to the Windows Phone platform. It looks like having iOS apps isn’t enough for the company. The company has announced new developer tools […]
04/30/2011, Remember back in the days when Sony Ericsson mentioned that due to hardware limitations, the Xperia X10 won’t be upgraded past Android 2.1? Well ever since they announced that the phone will be getting Gingerbread, people have realized that hardware limitations were all a sham. The folks over at XDA-developers managed to port Android 3.0, Honeycomb, onto the smartphone without much hassle. Even though it is Honeycomb that was obtained […]
04/15/2011, At the recent MIX11 conference, there was even the presence of Android at the Microsoft event, but it wasn’t there to steal the limelight away from the Redmond giants. The folks who were behind the port for Silverlight to Linux have managed to port Microsoft’s application framework over to the Android operating system. This means that in the future, we’ll be able to run Silverlight content on our Android devices. […]
04/06/2011, According to the latest job listing posted by Apple, it looks like they’re looking to bring new Thunderbolt port to devices other than the MacBook Pro. On their official hiring site, Apple posted a vacancy for the role of “Thunderbolt Software Quality Engineer” – a candidate with at least 5 years of software quality assurance testing to test new hardware and software that will take advantage of Thunderbolt input/output technology. […]
03/28/2011, It looks like Amazon really wants to get in on the whole app business. After launching their own Android app store, the online mega-store has been reported to have sent invitations to third party developers to port their apps over to Kindle. The creators of the Kindle are apparently looking for educational apps to boost the app collection of their own eBook reader. While it sounds like a good idea, […]
03/22/2011, Last year, the European Union ordered phone manufacturers to make sure that their phones can all be charged using a microUSB charger – eliminating the need for separate chargers for different devices – an inconvenience that many consumers face at the moment especially if they own phones from different manufacturers. The order fell through, but instead of manufacturers putting microUSB ports on their phones, they included microUSB adaptors with their […]
