nexus 4 and 7

nexusesthe iPad 2 was gathering a bit of dust mainly because of the lack of being able to connect external devices such as hardisks and mouse. I sold the iPad off and got myself the nexus 7 32gig with wifi and 3G. I got optional extras leather case with built in keyboard and break out cable for usb devices. Im currently waiting for a small bluetooth mouse which will come in really handy. The hardward quility is amazing and the screen is lovely to look at. The tablet is really responsive and a breeze to setup. When i firs powered it on it asked me a few questions including my google account details which setup sync for my contacts and calendars and notes using google services. I used the google play app to install all my apps that i needed and amazingly only had to pay for one or two! Now the first day i got it i used it for a full day and the battery lasted the full day which i was really happy with. Ive took the device to work with me and used it for general IT work including team viewer to fix remote servers and it works great! I was so happy with the android operating system and how much it has progressed since i last used it a year a so a go i decided to dump the iPhone 4s and get myslef a nexus 4 to match and again got a nice leather case for it and im amazed with the phone, probably the best thing i ever did was loosing the iphone and ipad for the nexus 4 and 7, they are both little gems. Before you get stuck in a apple world give the androids a try you get some lovely features including desktop widgets and loads of other goodies!!!
look out for the nexus or the samsung galaxy devices awesome…

 

GTA vice macbook app store disappointment

Screen Shot 2012 12 12 at 01 06 59I already had a copy of this game before i bought it on the app store which i created myself for free using a wine wrapper which still works fine to this day.. i even see you can buy it of steam.. i bought it straight away for my iPhone and iPad which was good at around £3, i noticed the cloud load and save option which is great and gives more dimension to the game being able to work through the game on multiple devices and start and stop were you finish off using cloud save or load. So she i noticed on the app store version for mac book the date was december the 6, assumed it was updated like the iPad, iPhone being released the same time with the cloud save load option. So i forked out the £6 and it doesn’t work. Very disappointed, one of my all time favourites … this would have been elite but i guess they won’t add it. I can only say this is half cut and corner cutting and stupid for a feature would have brought this game back to life and improved mac gaming 100%

 

Synology 4.1 beta on my ds211j

Just flashed my ds211j synology to 4.1 flashed a treat and installed the new DS video package added my used account the privileges and created a new root folder called TV shows. installed the ds video app on the iPhone and iPad – works a treat almost in the style of plex gets film information and a picture of the film. I tried to load a few films and sometimes the internal player don’t recognise the the format and starts ace player as external player which is pretty bullet proof and plays anything! its still beta but works great. Im looking forward to get a USB tv tuner for it and getting it recording TV shows for me thats a great feature! Im still thinking they should install a app so you can plug in a external DVD writer to burn files to disk over the network…..

GBN Is Closed. GMN Is Open.

Logo

Im sorry for the few people who were messed around over xmas with URLS. Ive closed GBN as i could not get control of the domains. I need the domain all together professionally not scattered around the globe for reasons of future investments and expanding business. Im afraid this had obstacles and had to move away from the domains and name. I bought new domains – renewed all the licences to the new domain and rebuilt the whole system. The good thing is the whole system only has one bug as it stands after a full rebuild which is getting looked at no rush as it something minor.
