Youtube fail


I was preparing to buy a new smartphone. As usual, I checked all tech review sites and forums, I wanted to get as much information about my potentially new device as possible. In the end I started checking out videos from users of the device on youtube. After checking 4-5 videos, I realized that most of the videos are not in English (one of the languages I speak), I also realized that there is no language search on youtube. So I had to play every video that I thought is interesting for me for a few seconds to see the language of it. An extremely important feature for situations like mine. Huge fail and thumb down for youtube.

Android 2.1 for T-Mobile Pulse

10.12.2010 UPDATE: 
Check this link, Android 2.2 (Froyo) is available for T-Mobile Pulse!

T-Mobile Hungary released the official 2.1 update for T-Mobile Pulse. I believe that in the next few days it will be released all around the world where the Pulse is sold.

Just below this text you can see the manual which explains how to upgrade your Pulse (Huawei U8220).

First, very important, back up all your data!

Do the update only with well charged battery or connect the charger during update! Do not remove the battery and the do not turn off the phone while doing the upgrade, in a few parts of the upgrade your screen will be stuck for a few minutes, be patient!
  1. Download the update file
  2. Unzip the file to a location of your choice on your computer
  3. Copy the dload folder and all its contents to the root directory of your MICRO SD card
  4. On your Pulse, go to the Main menu, then select Settings
  5. Within Settings select SD card & phone storage
  6. Scroll down, under the Internal phone storage section select Software upgrade, and choose SD card Upgrade
  7. The upgrade process will give you several warnings which you need to confirm to continue
  8. Then press the Upgrade option to begin the update
  9. As the update progresses you will see several screens along with a progress bar
  10. Once complete you will see a confirmation screen, and your Pulse will automatically restart
Important! After installing the new software, the available free memory will be reduced to 40 MB (additional storage space stored in the device).

Be careful! You can not go back to the 1.5 December update, after installing this 2.1 update.

update:
Download link corrected, sorry for the inconvenience.

Tardicaca Lake

Tardicaca Lake does not really exist. Everyone who watched the 201 South Park episode named Crippled Summer, heard so many Tardicaca things. Anyway, nothing of that really exists. :)

Accessing adsense account from android device

Since I got my new android phone (T-mobile pulse, with andoid 1.5), I was unable to check the balance of my adsense account from my phone. I tried a few different browsers (dolphin, default android browser, opera mini (2 versions), steel..) and I could not access the account with any of those apps. Since there is no available official adsense application, and the only adsense app is not available in my country (its not free, and it was banned afterwards anyway), there was no way to check the adsense account from my new android device...

I was searching the net for a solution, but I could not find it, adsense account can not be checked properly from an androd device...

Anyway,

After I spent a few hours playing with the default android browser, i found a way, so, its not true that adsense accounts can not be checked from android devices.

This is what you need to do in order to check your adsense account from android device.

First, make the adsense page your home page. When you start the browser, it will get you to your home page (adsense), and it will ask for a username and password. Type your username and password here, you will open the adsense page, but it will not load properly (the problem with all previous browsers). Shown on the picture down.



Now open another window (adsense home page), and type the username and passwrod here as well, the page will load, but not correctly, just close the present window, the window behind will reload and you will see a fully loaded adsense page, just like on the pictures down. You will be able to access all parts of your adsense account.




That's it. Please comment any questions.

Paypal Account Macedonia

How to create PayPal account from Macedonia

This is a short tutorial which will show you how to make a paypal account if you are a resident of the Republic of Macedonia.

First, as u well know, it is not possible to make paypal accounts from Macedonia. I am not going to talk or explain the reasons for that. Simple, its like that, residents of Macedonia are not alowed to open paypal accounts!

In order to make an account, to use ebay.com and other services that require paypal, this is what you are going to do.

Go to NLB Tutunska Banka and create an account there. Make a Euro account as well. You dont need to deposit any money to the Euro account, just create it (its free) and connect it to your main account. Fill a form for Visa Electron debit card, it should be ready in 10-14 days.

When you get the Visa E. card, go to paypal.com and create an account. In the beggining you will be asked to tell paypal from which country you come from. Choose Slovenia. Continue your registration, in the filed for city instead of just typing your city name, type Macedonia as well. When you type everything it should look like this.

Petar Petrovski
str. Franklin Ruzvelt 55/2/1
1000 Skopje
Macedonia
Slovenia

Than, in the field where paypal will ask for your account, just type the number of your visa electron card, or simply type the number of your bank account. NLB Tutunska Banka is owned by the Slovenian Bank NLB, I guess that paypal looks at NLB accounts from Macedonia like slovenian accounts. Or maybe not. However, this works, I use it for some time, and I never had problems. I also know many people that use it.

For any questions, feel free to ask. I might make a tutorial with pictures as well.

I will strongly suggest you to use this procedure/trick to create an PayPal account only if you need it to buy something from ebay occasionally. Do not use it for business purposes or to receive large amounts of money. My experience shows that account blockages and complications can occur if larger amounts of money are being transferes from or to the paypal account created this way.

happy bday
