Oh Hello, Android Studio

Now how on earth did I miss this puppy? Well that's twice this week I've missed out on knowing something about Google (This and also my quick US Weather Alert system for tornado watches and tornado warnings - will post about this at a later date though)

Now when I'm fiddling around and programming for my Android phone, I usually use Eclipse as my IDE and use it with the Android SDK (API Level 8 and API Level 15 for Android 2.2 and Android 4.0.3 respectively), however upon searching around the internet for some tutorials... [read more]

Twitter Series: #1 Using Twitter API v1.1

The final stages of the transition from v1 to v1.1 of Twitter's API went fully complete 11th June 2013, however there's still a fair few people using v1 of the Twitter API and moaning that it's not working. Well obviously it's not going to work now as it's been totally switched off.

However updating to use v1.1 of the API is very simple.

Now before I start rambling on about how you can do things, I would like to point out that I am using Abraham Williams' Twitter OAuth class for this post (as it's the first and main one I've came... [read more]

YouTube's Gone Gay

I was going to post about this around 2am when I saw it, but became a bit engrossed in random stuff on the iPlayer. However, better late than never, eh?

YouTube #ProudToLove

So, as you can see above, YouTube have decided to celebrate LGBT Pride "month" by placing a clickable rainbow coloured heart next to the main logo. When clicked, it goes to YouTubeUK's feature page with plenty of videos about a lot of lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender issues, support and doses of humour.

The hashtag #ProudToLove is heavily used throughout this aswell, because, as it mentions, "YouTube is... [read more]

When Your Double Takes Over...

So whilst I was browsing through random things online, I came across a link to a post on someone's Tumblr which I decided to start reading. Whilst reading it, I got very engrossed in it and found it quite enjoyable to read, although near the end of it, it did seem to turn a bit weird. I did find the original source site (link below) and I just thought, I'd like to share it with you. Have a read and tell me what you think. :)

So grab a cup of tea, get comfy and enjoy a nice read. (Oh and... [read more]

Facebook Leaks Email Addresses And Telephone Numbers

Facebook LeakIt seems in the early hours of the morning, Facebook missed a bug (even though they're "supposedly" there full-time monitoring them) which subsequently leaked your email address and telephone number to someone who you may not have granted access to seeing. Bit of poor performance there Facebook in my opinion. The one bit that gets me though in this "Important Message", is their quote "While many of us focus our full-time jobs on preventing or fixing issues before they affect anyone" ... now if this bug wasn't here last week, then why is it...

Trying To Remember An Old Game

Ok, so earlier on I was talking to my mate and randomly during the conversation I brought up a memory from when I was at school and the fact that I cannot for the life of me remember what the name of a game I used to play was called.

At first, I was unsure on even the make of computer - although I know it wasn't an Apple based OS nor a Windows based OS. He mentioned RM Nimbus and when I did a quick Google Image search, the logo looked very familiar, however later on in the evening, I... [read more]
