Recently, I bought PlayStation 3 and as I played more and more, I got to know about to PlayStation Network and PlayStation Store. They interested me. Then I tried connecting my USB internet with the PlayStation 3 because my modem internet was not anywhere near the PlayStation 3.

But, I wasn’t able to connect the USB internet on my PS 3. After days of searching about it, I finally got the solution. There was a need of configuring my netbook’s network settings. I just felt that many people required such a tutorial and that’s why I have come up with this post.

Materials Required: LAN Wire, USB Internet, Netbook or Laptop, PlayStation 3

Note: This tutorial has been practiced on Windows 7.

ON YOUR NETBOOK/LAPTOP:

1. Open Control Panel and search for Network and Sharing Center. Open it.
2. Click on the name of the connection.
3. Click on Properties.
4. Click on “Sharing” tab.
5. Tick the first box and select “Wired Ethernet Connection” in the drop-down box.
6. Click on OK. Close the Properties box.

ON YOUR PLAYSTATION 3:

1. Switch on your system.
2. Go to “Settings”.
3. Find “Network Settings”.
4. Click on “Internet Connection Test”.

It will then search for the required information and your internet would be connected.

You may need to update your PlayStation 3 to 3.72 version to sign up on PlayStation Network and use the online features of the games. That’s all what you require to do. Adding internet to PlayStation 3 makes your whole PS experience a lot more better and awesome. You can create hundreds of friends using PlayStation Network and if you have the PlayStation Eye(Motion Sensor for PlayStation Move), you can also video chat with your friends adding a lot of fun.

If you have any problem, you may use the comments to tell me about the problem. I will try my best to solve them and bring the best experience to you.

Many a times, when you want to build a gaming PC, one of the most important things that you would need is the power supply unit. Without one, it’s really hard to run all those super powerful graphic cards and coolers and hard drives and all the things that you’ve cramped in to the computer.So, if you end up buying the wrong power supply, which doesn’t manage to power all those basic components, then that means you need more power. Now, you’d be certainly disappointed and would want to buy a new psu. Don’t!!

This is something really amazing, and not many people know about this, well, at least I didn’t until recently. Don’t sell your PSU, instead you can use your old one or buy something cheaper and connect them to create a dual power supply unit. Yup, that’s right, actually you can even connect three if you have a cabinet that’s big enough. How exactly do you do this?

Okay, first of all, you’ll need to make sure that your computer case can accommodate dual power supply units. To make this happen, you’ll need to get a dual psu adapter. Add2PSU is one such mainstream company that makes dual psu adapters and sells them to you or directly to manufactures, they’re really durable and work great. You can even connect three or more power supplies at one go and get the best out of them all. That’s what gamers do don’t they? Get the best juice out of anything and everything. You can check out the video of how this actually works and how to get it right after the break.

Hope this helps you out, when it comes to power supply woes. Check out Add2PSU. It will cost you about $44 with international shipping, which I don’t think is bad at all.

There are many ways to download YouTube videos, there are many ways to drive a car too. But, since we are not talking about cars here, let’s talk about another amazing way to download a YouTube video to your Dropbox account. Yes, you heard me right. Dropbox could most likely be the best online cloud storage service to have knocked on our computer doors yet. It’s easy to use and you get free 2 GB storage when you sign up, or you could buy an HTC phone and get another 3Gb with that.

Anyways, here’s an awesome web service that does something extraordinary. Videodropper, as it’s known, let’s you send any YouTube video to your Dropbox folder located on your iOS device such as iPhone or iPod Touch. That means, it literally let’s you download any YouTube video on to your iPhone or iPod Touch. Pretty slick, don’t you think. This is a new web service and it works great. All you have to do is head over to Videodropper.ep.io and then provide the YouTube URL that you would like to download and send to your iOS app.

Once you’ve decided what video you want to download, just paste the URL and click on Send to Dropbox. You also have the option to optimize the video for your iPhone or iPod Touch before you send it to your Dropbox folder. That way, it’s already compressed to run great on your mobile device.

Now, head over to your iOS app, this currently works only on iPhone and iPod Touch, and then wait for the video to be downloaded. It’ll take about 2 minutes, depending on your internet speed, to get the whole thing done, including the conversion. And then, you’ll have the video downloaded on your device like in the screenshot below.

And there you have it. Another simple way to download YouTube videos, but this time, directly your Dropbox account. YouTube to Dropbox, direct service, thanks to the amazing Videodropper.

Do use this service and let us know how amazing did you find it?

A yet another phone launch has hit the phone industry. This time the phone has been launched by a good phone manufacturer LG. LG Jil Sander is a fine powerful mobile with quite good specifications and features. The design is magnificent and the phone looks great in black(available in black only).

The name sounded a bit strange to me, but it doesn’t matter when I saw the specifications, I liked the phone to much extent. The specifications can be seen below. Just keep reading this post to know about them.

  • It has a TFT capacitive touch screen.
  • The size of the screen is 3.8 inches with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels.
  • The weight hasn’t been announced yet.
  • It has an internal memory of 16 GB but it is not expandable as there is no card slot available. That is one minus point which was found in HTC Sensation XL as well so it seems to be spreading.
  • It has a 5 megapixels rear camera with autofocus, LED flash and geo-tagging. Video recording is available at 720p@30 fps. Secondary camera is not available.
  • It runs on Windows Phone 7.5(Mango).
  • It has a 1 GHz Scorpion processor, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm QSD8650 Snapdragon chipset.
  • GPRS, EDGE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v2.1 and microUSB v2.0 are available in the “Connectivity” section.
  • It has a Li-ion 1500 mAh battery.
  • LG Jil Sander Mobile is expected to hit the stores in the 4th Quarter of 2011.

This phone is filled with specifications that will attract you and stick you to the awesomeness of the phone. I agree with the fact that the 16 GB maximum storage would not be acceptable for many as some people want to keep hundreds of media files and games in their phones so they want 32 GB. But on the other side, the Windows Phone 7.5 would be a good addition to the phone.

1Ghz processor is enough to make phones run faster and smoother and with that processor, this mobile will also be able to run quite fast. Let’s wait till the launch.

The iPhone 4S, which was launched about 4 days ago carries the same look of the original iPhone 4, thus making it quite impossible to differentiate the two models. So, it’s only normal for some one to create a rather stupidly funny video about the same thing and upload it on to YouTube. That’s what has been done. There are lot of spoofs about the iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch, but we don’t share all of them as not all are interesting and funny or have a point.

This new video though, titled the Banned iPhone 4S Video has a strong sense of humor and some practical facts make the video really interesting. It’s fantastically funny and amazing to watch as it describes how and why Apple made the new iPhone 4S. It’s not true, but it is if you’re one of those who are gravely disappointed that no iPhone 5 turned up despite of all the rumors. It’s not really a good idea to make fun of Apple right after the death of one of it’s most important members, but that’s not what this video is about. It’s more likely to cheer you up after the whole tragedy that hit us all, Apple fans or not.

The description clearly states the intention of the people who made the video too;

This video is in no way meant to make fun of the loss of Steve Jobs. it’s a satire of the iPhone 4s promo that Apple released on Tuesday. It’s been a very dark week indeed, and i think everyone could use laugh. i’m sorry if I offended anyone, or if my timing was in poor taste.

So, you can watch the video after the break. Let me warn you again, this is not the official iPhone 4S video, but a spoof made by some people to make fun of the original one. Enjoy!!

What do you think of the spoof? Is that why Apple made the iPhone 4S? Because they were bored?

It was reported yesterday that the popular jailbreaking service JailbreakMe.com had been bought by an uknown buyer and that it would be unsafe to use it. JailbreakMe is one of most popular free and easy to use jailbreaking service, which was also the first to jailbreak the iPad 2. However, since it’s original owner Comex was hired by Apple recently, people were worried what was going to happen to his tool.

MuscleNerd confirmed yesterday that Comex indeed had sold it to Conceited Apps and they, to make some quick buck, sold it to an unknown and untrusted buyer. He also asked everyone to stay away from JailbreakMe.com and not to use the jailbreaking tool since it could be used to spread malicious code or software to your iOS devices. It was also told that the jailbreaking tool would be moved to a new site called Jailbreaks.me, but there’s no need of that, whatsoever.

As you all should know, well the people who jailbreak their iOS devices, that one of the most important names in the jailbreaking scene is Jay Freeman, a.k.a Saurik. He was the man behind Cydia, Winterboard and MobileSubstrate. If it wasn’t for him, we wouldn’t have had awesome tweaks and themes for our iDevices. So, Saurik gave the jailbreaking world, a very good news just hours ago and stated that he has bought JailbreakMe.com and has complete ownership over it. Now, that’s some really good news, as people can use the website without being afraid of anything happening to their devices.

Yesterday, we learned that jailbreakme.com was sold in July; today, I talked with the new owner: he is actually very likable and awesome. ;P
and tonight, jailbreakme.com was transferred to me (convenient, as I host the site ;P); so, going forward, we no longer need to worry!

JailbreakMe.com can only be used for devices that are running iOs 4.3.3 and below as Apple had recently patched the PDF exploit in all the versions above that. So, there’s no need to be afraid, you can go ahead and jailbreak your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad/iPad 2 using JailbreakMe.com.

Nokia is definitely the most trusted mobile brand in India. Even though Nokia has undergone huge loss over the years in many countries including our own country but still Nokia is trying its best to get back on track. Nokia needs to launch new phones in order to get back to the superiority.

Nokia is currently targeting the entry-level and middle-level market. A new phone has been announced by Nokia which will be an affordable touch screen phone. The specifications are quite good and by the specifications it looks that the price would be as low as Rs. 9,000 to Rs. 10,000.

The specifications are given below:

  • It has a TFT resistive touchscreen.
  • The size of the screen is 3.2 inches with a resolution of 360 x 640 pixels.
  • It weighs 93 grams.
  • It has an internal memory of 40 MB which is expandable up to 16 GB using a microSD card. It has a RAM of 128 mb.
  • It has a 2 megapixels rear camera with geo-tagging. Video recording is available at 640×352@15 fps. No secondary camera is available.
  • It runs on Symbian OS v9.4, Series 60 rel. 5.
  • GPRS, EDGE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v2.1 and microUSB v2.0 are available in the “Connectivity” section.
  • It is available in Graphite Black, Aluminium Grey, Red, Orange, Blue, Black Illuvial, White Illuvial and White/Red colors.
  • It has a Li-Ion 1000 mAh battery. The details are:
    Talk Time: Up to 11 hours 30 minutes
    Standby: Up to 500 hours
  • The phone is expected to hit the stores in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Nokia C5-06 would be a great phone for the touch-screen fans because it is a fine and affordable touch screen phone which the most people would be looking for. It will get a lot of success here especially in India because the demand of affordable touch screen phones is increasing day by day and Nokia did a smart thing by launching such a phone.

There are many ways a jailbroken iOS device is better than a regular one, the amount of tweaks available that make the operating system better is unlimited. Nowadays, people usually run behind security a lot, as most of their data is either stored online, on their computers and on their mobile devices. Even though all of them are pretty secure, it’s easy to break in to them. We all care about our important and personal data and sometimes we do not want to share it with others.

You can password lock your iOS device, but you can’t normally lock application that might be of much importance to you, for example the Messages, Contacts or Notes app. You might have some sensitive data in some of these applications, certain contacts that you may not want to share with others and important data in your Notes app. Wouldn’t it be much simpler if you could just lock applications instead of everything. There’s a tweak for that!

iAppLocker is a Cydia tweak available for all jailbroken iOS devices that can lock application with password protection for each and every app. You can select, which apps you would want to be locked in the Settings menu and also set the global password. All the locked applications will henceforth require you to input a password to gain access.

As you can see in the above screenshot, every time you launch a locked application, you’ll be asked to type in a password set by you. And, this makes your app really secure, by not allowing anyone else to open it. How to get this amazing Cydia tweak on your Jailbroken device?

Well, first of all, you’ll need to have a jailbroken iOS device. Once you have that, head over to Cydia and search for iAppLocker, install it, head over to Settings and Enable the tweak and set your password and select, which applications you’d like to password protect.

Remember, the tweak won’t get enable right after this. You’ll need to Respring to get the tweak working, the same must be followed when you want to disable it. It works pretty well and I was really impressed, so why don’t you try it out yourself and tell us what you think of it.
