plockb75I’ve been using KeePass for a 5 or 6 years now and it makes generating secure passwords and retaining them safely very simple.  Additionally it stores the web pages they may refer to as hyper-links.  You can also run it from a USB memory stick and have all you details encrypted and to hand on the road.

I was after a simple method of importing my numerous internet passwords and ClockWork’s Firefox to KeePass Importer plugin covers this task nicely.  If you have a lot of saved PW, and you use the import favicon option this takes a little time.

One other top tip, combine this with Dropbox and you have a truly mobile synchronised Database accessible from the Android version of Keepass too! (or your iPhone for that matter)…

Lots of changes in the latest version.

UnifiedRemoteUnified 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…

Would you like to know more?

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…

unnamedClearly every new phone deserves a new game, mine is Smash Hit which rather neatly encapsulates the point of the game.

Take a surreal journey through an otherworldly dimension, move in harmony with sound and music and smash everything in your path! This experience requires focus, concentration, and timing to not only travel as far as you can, but also break the beautiful glass objects that stand in your way.

Smash Hit for Android

unnamedAbout 2 years too late MS actually made MS Office freely available at no cost for iPhone and Android users…

Microsoft Office Mobile is the official Office companion optimized for your Android phone. You can access, view and edit your Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint documents from virtually anywhere. Documents look like the originals, thanks to support for charts, animations, SmartArt graphics and shapes. When you make quick edits or add comments to a document, the formatting and content remain intact.*

android-market-leader-smartphoneI always enjoy looking at these lists, in the hope they contain something useful or something I actually would use.

Would you like to know more?

indexOne of my biggest gripes with Instagram is you can only use your phone or tablet to post images.  With Bluestacks you can emulate an Android device on your PC or Mac and post from there (including images on your hard drive).

Obviously you can also download and install anything you like from the play store.

A long title, but a pain to achieve as Windows 8 ADB drivers are different from Vista and Win7.  It’s exactly the same process on Vista & Win 7, but impossible on Windows 8 without the drivers linked below..

Jelly Bean on Kindle Fire 2.

Jelly Bean on Kindle Fire 2.

So in the correct order:

  1. Install Kindle Fire ADB drivers from this page at XDA and then Root as instructed (Device needs to be rooted to add custom .img files and Boot-loader.).  In the same thread:
    • Carry the steps in the Root Many Android section.
    • Then Qemu Automated Root.
  2. Follow the Cordless APK Instructions here to install a custom .img file and boot-loader (the excellent TWRP).  You need this to install custom ROMs.
  3. Finally, you get to flash your device with a custom ROM, I used this JellyBean 4.2.1 ROM.

Once you have done that lot, you boot up into a standard Jelly Bean environment with out all the Kindle crap and the store with charges more for apps than the Google Play store does.  I linked the tablet to the wife’s Gmail account (it’s her tablet), and it promptly sorted her emails and pulled down her Android apps without my intervention…
