It isn’t everyday that you come across free applications on Cydia for new themes, screensaver for iPhone and wallpapers. Today I’ll be sharing with you an app that you can download for free from Cydia and use it get iPhone screensaver.

The app itself is simply known as ScreenSaver, and all it does is provide you a list of files to chose from and use them as a screensaver for iPhone. ScreenSaver was launched a few days ago, and since then it has been downloaded a lot of times. It is yet another iPhone app that can be used for the customization and adding screensaver for your iPhone.

ScreenSaver Screenshot

ScreenSaver app is actually quite interesting, because of the way it makes the screensaver for iPhone. It doesn’t actually download anything, but uses stored .mov files in its library to play it when the iPhone is locked. In turn, this works as an iPhone screensaver, coming on when you lock your iPhone.

Of course, this will effect the battery as it will be playing a .mov file when your iPhone could actually be saving battery. But, that’s not the point here, it’s about customization of your iPhone, your jailbroken iDevice. You can also add your own shortened .mov clips by copying them to the path provided by the app /var/mobile/Library/ScreenSavers/. Watch the demo video of the ScreenSaver app after the break.

This is a free Cydia app, and can be obtained by searching for it in the Big Boss Repository.

Tell us what you think of this little app that can make your iPhone even more attractive.

HTC is wearing a crown of Android smartphones these days as they’ve been launching a big line-up of smartphones in the market with slight of difference between them.

Sony Ericsson handsets are also popular because of their awesome sound and image quality. But these days Sony Ericsson is not listed in top rating market list because they are not having huge list of smartphones. Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is something that you will surely fall in love at first sight.

Here I am comparing two most powerful Smartphones, one is by HTC and other is from Sony Ericsson which will help you in deciding what to buy.

HTC-Sensation-4G Vs. Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc

HTC-Sensation-4G Vs. Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc

Operating System and Processor

HTC sensation has a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm dual-core processor with 3D like transition in the menu. The device is having latest version of Android OS, version 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system with the latest HTC Sense UI.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is also powered with 1 GHz Scorpion Processor, Aderno 205 GPU, and comes factory shipped with Android OS, version 2.3 (gingerbread) O.S., TrackID music recognition and the Timescape UI

So, both the phones run on equally powered processors and also run on the same operating system. Only the UI on both the phones are different, this is where brand value comes in. Thus, it will matter on what phones you’ve used before and on your personal feedback.

Display and Camera

HTC device comes with a S-LCD Display, 4.30- inches of capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. Multitouch input method, proximity sensors, ambient light sensor are some of its features. The main camera is a 8.0 Megapixel one with Dual LED flash, auto focus and face detection capabilities. It also has a secondary VGA camera for video calling.

On the other hand, Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc has a LED Backlit Capacity 4.20- inch super LCD Capacitive Touchscreen with screen resolution of 480 x 854 pixels. Other features include accelerometer sensor for autorotate, timescape UI, proximity sensor for auto turn off. Camera of Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is a 8.0 MP with Auto Focus, but with the Exmor R Censor technology and LED flash has an image resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels with no additional secondary camera.]

In Display and Camera, surely the Xperia Arc is the winner, because the display has higher resolution and the camera is way better compared to the one on the HTC Sensation.

Memory and Dimensions

HTC sensation has 8GB of internal memory and 32 GB of external memory card support. Dimensions of the phone are (126.1h x 65.4w x 11.3d) mm and it is just 148 g in weight.

Whereas the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc has an internal memory of 512 MB and external card slot of microSD which can support 32 GB of memory. Dimensions are (125hx 63w x 8.7d) mm and is 117g in weight which is really sleek and you will love to see its slim style.

Hence, the Xperia Arc is the winner again, if you like slim and light phones that is.

Miscellaneous features

HTC device supports connectivity of Bluetooth v3.0 and has Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n. Micro USB, GPS and A GPS support, Push email, video playback and FM radio.

Sony Xperia Arc has Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. GPS and A-GPS support, FM radio, Push Mail Service, Smile recognition feature, SMS, MMS and Document viewer.

Features on both the devices, when it comes to applications, is very similar as both run on the the Android operating system.

Battery and Price

HTC Sensation has a Li-ion 1520 mAh power battery that supports stand by time of 350 hrs and talk time of 6.66 hrs. It is available in Black and brown color with price of Rs. 29,999.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is powered with standard Li- Po 1500 mAh battery that has stand by time of 430 h and talk time of 7h and is available in midnight blue and misty silver for Rs. 28,900.

Again the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc has a better pricing, with a little of extra feature!! It’s all on you what you decide on getting with your hard earned money.

Between these two smartphones which would you consider as best? Do share your opinion with us.

Many people have to send anonymous emails either because of personal reason or to inform about illegal activities. You can also use these services when you are using any public computer and don’t want that your email ID or password get saved. The reason for using fake emails can be because of good reasons and for bad reasons. It’s up to you how you prefer to use it. I came across few of such free services which allows you to send anonymous emails quickly without any hassles. Check them out right now:

Send-email:

Send-email is an easy and quick way to send anonymous emails, you just need to enter message, email address and CAPTCHA. Click on send and your email will be sent in seconds. The mail won’t be having your email ID instead it would be “Free Email Service” in FROM section.

[ Link ]

Send email

Must Check Out:

Anonymouse:

It’s same like Send-email, you don’t need to enter your personal Email ID. Another good part you don’t have to enter CAPTCHA also. There is a drawback of this service, sometimes they send email a bit later.

[ Link ]

Annymouse

Anonymailer:

This is something for people who love to play prank as it allows you to send mails via any Email ID, your friend’s or your boss. But it will add a line “This email was sent via Anonymous email service for free.”. You can remove this line by being a paid member.

If you love to prank people with fake emails or use anonymous email services for some good cause then do share with us which free online service you use?

The Samsung Galaxy Tab, is certainly not a masterpiece, but as a gadget enthusiast I loved playing and using it! It’s handy, portable, almost as portable as a mobile phone, but doesn’t get there. The Galaxy Tab was Samsung’s entry into the tablet arena, something that every big or small gadget company is trying to get in to. When it was launched, it was quite a success, but then there already was the Apple iPad standing on top of a mountain with a bigger display and the Apple brand image.  This is a review for the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which I laid my hands on at the CallingAllGeeks Headquarters last week. I did not play with it much, mostly because it doesn’t have that many features and partly because I am well acquainted with the Android OS.

Samsung Galaxy Tab

Every other geek/gadget freak wants to get his/her hands on one of the successful tablets available today and show-off/use/play with it. At present there aren’t that many contenders in the market for the same price as the Galaxy Tab, unless you would want to pick something from the HCL or one of those Chinese booths. For a tablet, the Galaxy Tab isn’t all that big in size, it’s got a 7-inch screen and a rather thick body. The design isn’t anything unique either, but it does feel quite strong when held in hand.

Now I’m not going to go on about all it’s features and how they perform and what it can do and so on, because we all know that nobody is going to go through 10 pages of review of something that isn’t so fascinating. Oops, sorry, my bad..the Samsung Galaxy Tab is a wonderful..errrrr…device. I really don’t know what to call it, you can’t call it a tablet because it just isn’t big enough to be called one and you can’t call it a phone because it is quite big to be carried around in your pocket, plus it’s fat! No I’m not speaking bad about the Galaxy Tab, it really is something, fun to play games on, fun to watch movies, is sort of portable(if you carry it in a bag) and has dual cameras unlike the original iPad and can actually be used for video chatting over 3G. Anyways, here is my Samsung galaxy tab review, unbiased and honest:

Galaxy Tab Looks, Design and Form Factor

Samsung Galaxy Tab Top View

The Galaxy Tab isn’t a beauty, but from a certain point of view, it does look good. Being just 7-inch in size and having an all-touch interface, it’s not easy to design something that would stand out. But Samsung has done quite a neat job in the design section, giving it a white back panel to make it distinguishable from other tablets. It also has a nice feel, unlike other tablets with cheap plastics. At the front of the Tab, you’ll find four built-in keys that light up when you press the unlock button, you can also tell that they are present when the tablet is not switched on. It’s not the slimmest tablet around too, as it is quite bulky to carry around in your pocket. It is also quite thick at about 0.47 inch, as mentioned before, but that doesn’t really hinder it’s usage and instead feels more sturdy when held. Being just 7.4 x 4.7 inch does have it’s advantages, such as it can be used with just one of your hands and a total weight of about 370 grams is something to be proud about. So overall, the Galaxy Tab will not get you noticed much, but the thickness, weight and the small 7 inch screen certainly makes it a decent tablet or whatever you want to call it.

I would however suggest you to get a casing for the Galaxy Tab, it will come in very handy. Portability, in my opinion is a downer, you’ll have to stuff it in your backpack or get some custom designer jeans with huge pockets!!

Display, Camera and Video

Samsung Galaxy Tab Camera

Samsung decided to not use it’s display prowess with the Galaxy Tab, as this lacks Samsung’s SuperAMOLED or any Super display and instead is packed with a normal LCD display. I’m not saying that the display is bad, surprisingly it’s quite good, and the brightness may cause your parents to wake up at night and knock on your door. The screen resolution is a good 1024 x 600 and works really well when watching videos, gaming and viewing photos. The capacitive touchscreen is also very sensitive and works well, but you will have to cup your hands around the tablet to see what you’re seeing when outside in the sun. The display is crisp, even better than the display of the original iPad, which makes it ideal for reading e-books and play games on.

The camera on the Galaxy Tab is, well there are two, the front one is a 1.3 megapixel VGA camera and the back one is a 3.2 megapixel camera with LED flash. The main camera takes good steady shots, but the flash is not that powerful when taking pictures in the dark whereas the front camera barely does the job. Coming to the video shooting part, well, I’d suggest you get a handycam for your adventures, because this is not going to help you very much. Although the video camera shoots at 720 x 480 and the outputs are good, the lack of HD video recording is a let down. If you don’t mind not having HD recording then this should be no problem and thanks to the 16GB of internal memory you can store your videos and pictures and transfer them to your desktop anytime.

Hardware, Performance and Features

Samsung Galaxy Tab Back View

Coming to the Hardware, well it’s not too bad as it runs on a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, which in spite of being fast sometimes hung or made the tablet very sluggish when browsing, installing apps etc. Yes, apps, now that’s something I can tell you I enjoyed! I love the Android operating system, and the Galaxy Tab runs on Android 2.2 Froyo, which even though is quite buggy, gets the job done.  Being a blogger, I first checked out all the RSS reader apps, few favourite websites of mine and just some random articles on the stock browser that I found interesting. The stock browser is OK, I mean it does play flash content, but it’s sluggish while scrolling and sometimes while zooming, although this only happens with pages having lots of content. Gaming is not bad either, although I can’t tell you the experience was great, mainly because the games weren’t made for the tablet, they were just made for the mobile phones and have been only scaled to work on the  tablet. Graphics is okay, nothing impressive, but the screen clarity makes it look good and yes Angry Birds works perfectly! Thanks to the 512MB of RAM things seem to be just fine. The galaxy tab has Bluetooth version 3.0, which even though being very fast doesn’t come very handy because most of the devices currently available still utilize version 2.0. So overall:

  • Gaming: 3.5/5
  • Browsing: 4/5 (sluggish sometimes)
  • Graphics: 3/5
  • Processing: 3.5/5
  • Features: 4/5

Practicality, Usage and Pricing

Samsung Galaxy Tab Front View

I personally don’t think that the Galaxy Tab is practical! It just doesn’t cut as a fully fledged tablet or a mobile device, it’s stuck somewhere in between. I mean the features are good, the battery life is great (although charging is slow) and you won’t break it if you drop it. But when you pay about $450 with contract or $600 without and get a gadget that has only a 7 inch LCD screen, isn’t portable like it should be then what’s the whole point. I’m not saying I hate the Galaxy Tab, and I’m not saying I love it too. Using the tablet in broad daylight even with full brightness is a pain, because of it’s glossy screen, it’s almost impossible to see what you’re looking at. On the other hand, when inside, the display is just too good, even better than that of the original iPad. You can use the tablet for almost a whole day without having to worry about charging it, that too with Wi-Fi on, GPS on, lots of gaming, browsing and playing around. The one thing that is a let-down is the pricing, it’s just too expensive for a 7-inch tablet with Wi-Fi and optional 3G. Official pricing below:

Samsung Galaxy Tab AT&T: $549 with Contract
Samsung Galaxy Tab Sprint: $199 with New Contract, $429 with existing account
Samsung Galaxy Tab T-Mobile: $249 with New Contract, $499 with existing account
Samsung Galaxy Tab US Cellular: $599 with Contract
Samsung Galaxy Tab Verizon: $199 with New Contract, $499 with existing account

Price in India: Rs. 26000 offer price from LetsBuy, otherwise Rs. 32,920

Final Verdict

My Final word, if you really want to get your hands on a tablet and see what it’s like then you can get yourself the Samsung Galaxy Tab. If you’re not in a hurry, then you can probably save some more money and get yourself the upcoming Samsung Galaxy 10.1, which evidently is more of a tablet, being slim and with the 10.1 inch screen. The Android operating system is great, but we all know it’s buggy and from my personal experience crashes a lot. I don’t know about others, but if someone gifted me the Galaxy Tab I would take it, I’d never buy it!!

The Samsung Galaxy Tab is a very good first attempt by Samsung, but not all first attempts go well do they?

No surprise here! It’s been a long time waiting, for Sony to step into the tablet PC world and finally they have. Remember Sony’s Howard Stringer had confirmed that they would come out with tablets by this Summer? At last they have, and the tablets in question actually look great. Sony announced the tablets S1 and S2 at a Press Event earlier today that was taking place in Tokyo and said that they’ve been working on these tablets from a long time. Both of the tablets are being run on the latest Android tablet OS, Honeycomb 3.0 and have pretty good designs. As the designs go, it was obvious that Sony will be creative enough to create some really different and unique ones. The S1 is a single screen tablet whereas the S2 is a dual screen foldable one. These are not the official names of the tablet, but rather just codenames that Sony has given them for now.

Sony S1 and S2

Sony has included some common features for both these tablets and also added them to the Playstation Network with PlaystationSuite. The common features include the new and tablet oriented ‘Quick and Smooth’ user interface and the new Swift browser for easy web browsing. Both are Qriocity enabled, Sony’s personal network platform, which enables devices to interconnect and interact with each other. You can see in the above picture of both the tablets that they aren’t very slim, but the designs are something new and unique. Specially the design of the S2, with the foldable screens and the curved back is something different. Even the S1 has a curved back that, according to Sony, provides better grip while using.

“Sony Tablet” is equipped with the latest Android 3.0 which is designed for devices with larger screen sizes, particularly tablets. Both tablets are WiFi and WAN (3G/4G) compatible and users can not only browse the internet or check e-mail but they can also smoothly access digital content including videos, games and books through Sony’s premium network services and more, on-the-go at any time.

SONY S1 Tablet Specifications:

Sony S1

These are the official specifications as per the press release, complete specifications will be known once the tablet is launched.

  • A 9.4 inch touch screen display
  • Nvidia Tegra 2 Chipset
  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb
  • New ‘Quick and Smooth’ touch UI
  • Infrared for Remote Control
  • Cameras
  • Wi-Fi and 3G/4G compatibility

SONY S2 Tablet Specifications:

Sony S2

The Sony S2, hope they come up with a better name, has a foldable design and both the displays work in unison. It may be annoying for some as there is a seam that separates the two displays, which when watching videos or gaming will be a slight problem. If  you don’t mind that, then this tablet is something you can add to your list of ‘Want to buy’!!

  • Dual 5.5 inch touchscreen displays, working as one
  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb
  • Nvidia Tegra 2 Chipset
  • Dual Cameras
  • Custom Book Styled interface while reading e-books and Keyboard on one screen and e-mail on another while mailing/messaging etc.
  • Wi-Fi and 3G/4G compatibility

Sony has also released an official video for both the devices, although they are quite short and don’t reveal much about the tablets. Watch the video after the break.

Sony has announced that both the S1 and the S2  tablets will be available by this fall, but there has been no word on the pricing. We can expect it to be a little pricey as it’s Sony, and they have this weird rule of making everything expensive to buy. Click on the source link to read more on the press release.

One of the most appreciatable things about Facebook is that it keeps on experimenting with its web interface and various add-ons. Because of the presence of various apps and add-ons, Facebook homepage becomes crowded making it not so attractive for users.

So recently I came across a Google Chrome extension that allows users to get rid of Facebook’s hectic and crowded user interface. The extension is called as Minimalist for Facebook and its primary function is to help Google Chrome users to get rid unwanted stuff from their Facebook homepage.

This extension is only an internet browser-based hack and any changes are just local, meaning that the changed Facebook interface will only be visible on your PC and the real interface on Facebook’s own server will remain like that.

Minimalist-for-Facebook

How to Install Minimalist for Facebook?

The installing part is pretty easy, go to Chrome’s extension page and click on Install Button, extension will be downloaded and installed automatically. Once the installation is done, Minimalist for Facebook icon will show-up in the address bar. By default, the extension will perform no function till the time you customize settings by going to Options page. In-order to modify settings, click on “Options” button, to instantly activate or de-activate Minimalist for Facebook there is a “Toggle ON/OFF” button. “Panic” button is to refresh your Facebook Homepage to the latest settings.

Minimalist-for-Facebook-General-option

Once you click on “Options” button, a settings page will pop-up consisting of two different panes, menus options on the left and settings on right side.  There are loads of elements that you can modify on your Facebook page. The General page consists of elements like footers, CSS and icons, changing colors and layouts can be done from Theme page.

 

Import & Export Minimalist for Facebook Settings

The thing that I like the most about this particular extension is the ability to either import or export settings from one particular Chrome browser to another. So if you happen to be using Google Chrome on more than one machine then you don’t have to modify the settings again and again. To import/export settings you have follow these steps:

  • Go to “Import/Export” menu on Options PageMinimalist-for-Facebook-Import/Export
  • Click on “Export” button
  • Copy the entire text you will see visible in the settings field
  • Open extension on the other machine paste that text, click “Import”

In order to give you a better idea of what this extension does, here is a comparison of Facebook hompage before and after using Minimalist for Facebook.

After applying the settings using the extension:

After-using-Extension

You can download Minimalist for Facebook Chrome extension for free from the Chrome’s extensions official page.
