Unified Remote nice app which allows you to control a PC (or a Mac), in my case my laptop using you home network and your phone. Install the app, drop the appropriate file on your PC/Mac and away you go.
In this case, in my home cinema which allowed me to watch an .avi on the big screen with surround sound. It’s on sale this weekend at £0.80, bargain…
I remotely upgraded the firmware on my Synology Diskstation DS214SE this week to version 5 which comes with an interface overhaul as well as updates to all the packages. It all seems to be working well despite British Gas causing no less than 5 power outages whilst installing the new boiler/tank etc according to the log file.
Currently I only use a couple of packages:
All of which are now fully supported, video & Audi streaming to your phone for the latter two. Obviously they use your DATA allowance up, so I would limit music & video when connected to Wifi only. Essentially you now have mobile access to all files on the NAS regardless of where you are, so a personal dropbox with no nags to link friends for upgrades and so on.
I am testing DS Photo but it’s not very intelligent and wants me to drop batches of file in rather than folder trees. Seeing as they are stored logically and I can access them using DS File, this one will wait for updates before I bother using it in anger. Well, that and the fact I have 12 years of digital photos in 26,309 Files, 285 Folders weighing in at 93 Gig…
Just a couple of updates to my Rainmeter skins.
Dashboard gets a couple of graphical tweaks and a fix or two for Wifi & battery meters.
World of Tanks changed their stats page code for the umpteenth time forcing me to update the webparser.

Mostly playing with some of the new features with the massively improved Blinkfeed (now available from the play store for all Android users) and the bizare decision to make the clock white in the day and dark in the night, so looks extremely odd alongside Google Play as you can see on the right.
The handset comes with a cover (not that I will use it) and is simply beautiful to look at and makes the plastic Samsung offering look tatty in comparison.
Amazingly there are custom ROMs available already and I will given them a week or two for the early adopters to identify before applying one. This will allow me to remove all the crap I don’t want or use like Twatter, FaceBonk, Goggle+ and so on.
Anyhow, early days and I am pretty happy with it so far…
