TOP N95 Applications, Symbian S60 Applications – Part 2

Nokia N95 8GBNokia N95 8GBWell, so far it’s been more than 2 months I’m using the all new Nokia N95 8GB, and i’ve tested a lot of applications.

In the last post on this topic, I introduced 5 applications that I had personally installed and tested.

As promised, I’ll post 5 more this time, numbers follow…

6- Salling Clicker

This makes your phone as a remote form your computer over the bluetooth and even over WIFI if you’ve got a WIFI network around. I’ve installed and tested this app, works nice with inbuilt windows bluetooth drivers and has a lot of functions and even the possibility of making your own scripts. For example, I can control the Windows Media Player (mine’s 11) from the phone, and when listening to music (on the computer) if the phone rings, the application automatically stops the music, decreases system volume and shows a popup windows on the monitor to show that someone’s calling!! (this can be enabled/disable). There are lots of functionallities. If you wanna get a remote control for your pc (even mac) this is the best for the moment ūüėČ

Get it Here: http://www.salling.com/ (It works on MAC too!!)

You may need some plugins and 3rd party scripts, google and search also the forums, but if you don’t find anything, just leave comments on this post and i’ll upload some scripts and plugins too.

7- ALON MP3 Dictaphone

Here’s a nice dictaphone app, which can record your calls automatically, record voice (even the radio) in MP3 format and has the ability to increase or decrease the microphone gain! which lets you record even very small sounds :D!

Get it here: (Trial version) The Full one costs about 30$! http://www.alonsoftware.com/products/dictaphone_s60_3rd.htm

8- Nokia Maps 2 (Beta version)

At last we got something very nice from Nokia for the GPS stuff! They took so long!

Nokia Maps 2, has got a way better interface and a lot of functionality improvements and precision. Still in the beta (test) version, but there seems to be no stability issues till now (be carefull to install it only on latest firmware which is till date v. 15.0.015

Get it Here: http://www.nokia.com/betalabs/maps/ (Still in Beta, use at your own risk)

9- Y-Browser (from Yucca Tools)

This is very useful if you got stuff in your inbox and the phone doesn’t let you move them in the mass memory! that’s pretty wierd from Nokia to have such a dump bug, but with the help of this app, you can browse all your drives and even see hidden and system files.

But be very carefull with system files, you don’t want to “BRICK” your phone.

My advice is that you install the app, and install the ‘mailbox’ plugin so you can directly access your ‘My Folders’ inside the mailbox, from there you can move the stuff which are stuck.

Usually Free, Get it Here: http://www.drjukka.com/YBrowser.html

10- NiiMee

This is a very nice application, which uses the accelerometer inside N95 to make it like a Wheel, Mouse and Joystick! I did play Need For Speed Most Wanted with my phone on the PC, using my phone as the Wheel and staying far from the screen, WIRELESSLY over Bluetooth! This software rocks!

It’s Usually Available for free download at the author’s site: http://www.niime.com/

I’ll Put in the next time, some direct download links and a summary of the best applications. So, don’t go too far!

UPDATE :PART 3

Happy Norouz! Persian Calendar's New Year. Happy New Year to All Iranian

Norouz Mobarak - Happy new year

This Post is in two languages: English / French


===ENGLISH===

Today is the Persian calendar’s new year!

The year changed at 6:48:19 (GMT+1, Paris Time)

I wish a very happy new year to all Iranians around the world and my best wishes for health, happiness and wealth in everyone’s life.

Based on the official Iranian calendar, we are now in year 1387. For the new year, people arrange for a special table arrangement, called “Haft seen” which mean “Seven “s” ” which consists of different elements each having a signification and based on seven principal elements which names start with the “s” sound in Persian.

Here’s an article from Mohammad E Hesamian about “Haft Seen”:


The “Sofreh Haft Sin” is the spread,which the family gathers around to celebrate the New Year. It is the focal point of the celebration and ensuing visits and as such Iranians take great care and pride in putting together a lavish and elaborate spread to signify all that they want in the New Year.

The word “Haft” means “Seven” and “Sin” stands for the “S” in the alphabet. “Sofreh” means spread,the floor of which is usually a nice rich material or embroidered fabric.The spread contains the seven specific things that start with “S”. In addition to the seven items, you may place additional items on the sofreh that will signify renewal,happiness,wealth,good health or any thing that you desire for the New Year. But,a list of suggested items for your sofreh :

1-Sabzeh:Spring Sprouts:Made from wheat or lentil this S signifies rebirth and renewal.

2-Senjed: A sweet,dry fruit of a lotus tree: The fragrant and blooming lotus tree makes people fall in love so it is natural that its fruit would signify love and affection !

3-Sib: Apple:A big red apple represents health and beauty.

4-Samanu:Wheat Pudding:Wheat and wheat products signify sweetness and fertility.

5-Serkeh: Vinegar:White Vinegar signifies age and patience.

6-Somagh:Crushed Sumac berries:This S symbolizes the spice of life. Some say Somagh represents the color of the sunrise and with the sun all evil is conquered.

7-Seer:Garlic:This medicinal S is a sign of good health.

8-Optional S:Sekeh:Coins:Wealth and Prosperity

9-Optional S:Sonbol:Hyacinth Flower:Purple or pink represent life and beauty.

10-Head of the Sofreh:A Mirror To bring light & brightness into the New Year.

11-Head of the Sofreh:Scriptures:Quran,Bible,Torah, Avesta or other Scriptures:Symbolizes blessings and faith in the New Year.

12-….


¬†This year we prepared a HaftSeen table. It’s not so easy to find all the elements here in France, but we tried the best!

Voici un article de Mohammad E Hesamian sur “Haft Seen”:


Le “Sofreh Haft Sin” est la table o√Ļ la famille se r√©unit autour pour c√©l√©brer la Nouvelle Ann√©e.

Le mot “Haft” signifie “Sept” et “Sin” signifie le “S” dans l’alphabet Persan. “Sofreh” signifie table, le sol de ce qui est habituellement une belle richesse mat√©rielle ou brod√©s fabric.La table contient les sept choses sp√©cifiques qui commencent par un “S”. En plus des sept √©l√©ments, vous pouvez placer des points suppl√©mentaires sur le sofreh qui signifie renouveau, le bonheur, la richesse, la bonne sant√© ou toute chose que vous d√©sirez pour la Nouvelle Ann√©e.

Mais, une liste de points suggérés pour votre sofreh:

1-Sabzeh: Spring Sprouts: Fabriqué à partir de blé ou de lentilles, signifie renaissance et renouvellement.

2-Senjed: Fruit doux et sec, fruit d’un arbre de lotus: Le fumet et la floraison des arbres de lotus rend les gens amoureux et il est donc naturel que ses fruits signifient l’amour et l’affection!

3-Sib: Pomme: Une grosse pomme rouge représente la santé et la beauté.

4-Samanu: Pudding de blé: le blé et les produits du blé signifient douceur et de la fertilité.

5-Serkeh: Vinaigre: Vinaigre blanc signifie √Ęge et de la patience.

Mozilla Firefox … Shall I install or not?

Firefox
Firefox with an average of 15% of internet users by January 2008, is the next most used Browser on the internet.

You can read complete history and a lot more information on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Firefox .

I personally have been using Firefox and Internet Explorer for years. Well, both of them have disadvantages and inconveniences, but in overall i’ve been more satisfied with Firefox.

First of all, Firefox is more stable compared to Internet Explorer. As I experienced more crashes and application errors on Internet Explorer, I had very few crashes on Firefox.

From security point of view, I always felt more secure while browsing with Firefox. On Internet Explorer you get a lot of add-ons which cause severe security issues and most of the time cause application crash.

Even spywares are more common on Internet Explorer.

Some people say that they are used to Internet Explorer and do not want to switch to a new browser! Let me assure you; you won’t find any difficulties when switching to Firefox, because:

– It is very easy to use.

– Imports your Bookmarks, Favorites, and more setting from Internet Explorer if you want, and it does it AUTOMATICALLY, with no headaches!

– It is Very stable.

– You can customize its look to what ever color and style you like. It’s not like IE which forces you to like it!

– You can install and remove the add-ons you like and need. No headaches!

Internet Explorer 8 (IE8)

Download Internet Explorer 8

Microsoft released Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1 recently.

Today, I installedit on my Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3, and now it’s been 3 hours I’m testing it.

So far, I’m not so happy with it. It’s a bit slower and does not look so different.

Page formattings are different on IE8, as the same websites on IE7 are better looking! Paraghraph indentation is messed up in IE8.

The new Yahoo! Mail interface does not recognize IE8, and if you try to get in anyway, you won’t be able to read your emails because you can’t access the “folders” as such object is not authorized!

Google AdSense temporarily unavailable?

WTF?! Google Adsense site is down?!

What’s wrong with Google?

I can expect servers going down from every company, but not having secondary servers to serve up the required services is a bit shocking from Google, and mostly from it’s money making program!

Tonight (Tuesday, March 2008, 02:04 France Time) I tried to access my Adsense account, but I got this strange error page:

Download Windows XP SP3 Build 3311

Now You can Download Windows XP SP3 directly from Microsoft!!

That is a standalone service pack 3 update, and is not the whole Windows XP operating system.

I personally do not recommend slipstreaming the service pack, because of few version conflicts on ms dll files.

So just download and install the Service Pack 3 of Windows XP on your system before anyone else!

Lunarpages Server Down !

Lunarpages Logo 

Lunarpages.com is one of the best webhosts I ever had.

On February 28th, I was not able to access the websites I host on their shared hosting server “SOL”.

The server down time was getting too much, I tried to call them, but no one was answering! so I sent an email to the helpdesk asking them for detailed information. here’s the conversation:

==========Me:===============

Hi,
It’s been almost 2 hours that your server is down!!! what is wrong?! This is not acceptable!
You promise quality and best uptime but now!???
Please provide me detailed information about what is going on.
I’m in France and cant access the SOL server.
Domains I host on your servers are: gibni.com , < ...>

=====Lunarpages Response:======== 

Hello,

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Our technicians are aware of the issue and are working on a speedy resolution.

The Sol server is being restored to a new server due to hardware issues. The server is not booting up after a brief power routage in our Las Vegas Data Center. Websites and email will start to function as they are restored. We are estimating that the server will be completely restored by 3pm Pacific time on 2/29/2008. Your site should be back up shortly.

Thank you for your patience.


Best Regards,
