My Media Center

I’ve been planning to talk about my media center setup for a while now, but didn’t really have the time to write about it.

ASRock NetTop 2.jpg

I got the ASRock Ion 330 as the my Media center. The reason I went with this is the Dual core Atom processor and the built-in Ion chipset for crunching HD video. It has 2GB RAM, a 160GB HDD, DVD writer, VGA, HDMI and a bunch of USB ports on the back. And because of its size.

Log Me In – Software Review

Log Me In.jpg

When my long trip to San Diego came up, I looked for a way to manage my home PC remotely and for free. But also needed an efficient way to do it. And so I came across Logmein.

Log Me In is a free web-based service that lets you control and manage multiple Mac/PC’s computer with a browser and internet access.

My main reason for using such a service was too keep track of my downloads and make use of my internet connection while I’m gone. And Logmein helped me with that.

There is also a Logmein iPhone app that lets you control your computer from via your iphone (it costs $30) and the iphone has trouble handling the screen resolution even if you bring it down,I was using an iPhone 3G but it might be better with the iPhone 3G S.

You can’t transfer files between computers in the free version. But you can use other apps such as Dropbox which works flawlessly.

Logmein is not lightning fast, though lowering the screen resolution helps a lot, but it certainly gets the job done, and its free.

Skyfire: Enables Flash on Your Windows Mobile and Symbian Phone

28 May 2009  No Comments


Skyfire just came out from beta and available for download. I gave it a try when it in beta on my TYTN II (couldn’t test it on my HTC HD because the resolution wasn’t supported) and it was pretty good. It’s much better than you built-in browser.

Skyfire is supported by all windows-mobile and Nokia S60 3rd Edition phones.


iPhone Slingplayer Over 3G

17 May 2009  No Comments


It was one of the most anticipated applications for the iPhone. I was really looking forward to it.

I’ve been using Slingbox for almost 2 years now, and the Slingplayer software is available for almost every other phone.

The iPhone App was released 5 days ago, and man was it a disappointment. It was very laggy, video keeps buffering every 10-15 seconds and the most
frustrating shortcoming is, NO 3G SUPPORT.


But have no fear, the hacker community is here. if you have a jailbroken iPhone that is. Just download “Tricker Three 3G” from Cydia and thats it. It tricks Slingplayer, Skype and Fring and make them work on your edge/3g data connection.


As you can see from the picture above I’m connected via edge and still can stream video.

Now, if they only fix the other stuff.

It seems that Adobe Photoshop has some restriction that not everybody knows about. You can’t use it to scan, edit then print money notes.
