Run Android apps on your PC

Run your Android apps on your PC with Bluestacks

The BlueStacks app player for running Android apps on Windows has taken a major step forward today with the release of its first beta, which can run even graphics-intensive Android apps on desktop PCs.

The BlueStacks beta (download) leverages a new, patent-pending technology that the company has developed called LayerCake, which does two things necessary for running Android apps on Windows. First, it powers the app on hardware that it wasn’t originally intended to run on. That’s basically the ARM to x86 conversion which runs the apps, and it comes with the blessing of one of AMD’s head honchos.

“LayerCake is a disruptive technology that enables PC manufacturers to bring the best of the Android ecosystem to their customers. We are excited to work with BlueStacks to make the emerging Android mobile apps market part of the broader computing arena,” Manju Hegde, corporate vice president, Content, Applications and Solutions at AMD, said in BlueStacks’ statement announcing the new beta.

LayerCake also includes hardware graphics acceleration that wasn’t available in last year’s BlueStacks alpha. This means that it uses your PC’s graphics card to make graphics-intensive apps, including Android NDK games like Air Attack HD, run more smoothly:

Polaroid Pogo and iPhone (Jailbroken!)   

The Polaroid Pogo printer is a tiny handheld bluetooth photo printer. You can take a picture on your phone, and wirelessly print a photo to it.

Unfortunately Apple does not support OBEX printing which this printer uses. After some research and a bit of patience I found the answer I was looking for.

The program through Cydia called iBlueNova solved my problem. I am now able to print through Bluetooth to my pogo printer.

-This tutorial will show you how to get printing with your iPhone to the Pogo printer.

-Install iBlueNova
-On your Jailbroken iphone go to Cydia.
-Search for IBlueNova App.

Run iBlueNova
App Running
Enable the the Toggle
Go to Settings and Toggle “Send as JPEG”
GO to the main menu and select Pictures.
Choose the picture you want to print.
Hit the lower right button.
Choose the Pogo Printer (make sure its on and ready)
-Once you click on the Printer it will ask for a Code.
-Pogo’s Code is 6000.
-As soon as you put in the code it will start to transfer the jpg to the Pogo printer.
-Soon after the 100% mark the printer will start to print. (Some Cropping Happens).
1 – Turn Pogo on (solid green light)
2 – Open iBlueNova
3 – Change Enable to On
4 – Change Visible to On
5 – Tap Pictures
6 – Choose Picture
7 – Tap bottom right button
8 – Tap Polaroid
9 – Cross fingers
10 – PIN Request appears (Finally!!!)
11 – Enter 6000 and Confirm
12 – It says Connecting the Uploading
13 – Completed (Prints!)
Hope that helps you out!

Hotmail finally gets activesync and push notification

Hotmail users will finally be able to get e-mail push notifications and sync their contacts and calendars on smart phones, according to reports.

Microsoft is adding Exchange ActiveSync support to Hotmail next week. All Hotmail users will be able to use ActiveSync with mobile devices that support it, including the Apple iPhone, Google Android phones and — soon — Windows Mobile 7 devices.

iPhone users, for instance, can currently connect to their Hotmail accounts via the e-mail app, but they aren’t fully synchronized. Through ActiveSync, Hotmail users will soon be able to get enhanced syncing capabilities: when they delete an e-mail, it will be deleted from their Web-based Hotmail; when they reply to an e-mail, that message also will be available online; when they create a calendar event, that appoint also will show up on their Windows Live calendar.

These features are already available to Gmail subscribers, for instance, through IMAP and to people who use a company e-mail system through Microsoft Exchange.

Now, Microsoft is opening up that ability to users of its free e-mail service.
