What do you know about spam? Do you think that you can get rid of spam totally? Well, as computer and internet users, you surely have known that there are lots of threats that can harm your computer including all data that you store in your computer. Lots of people have ever experienced data lost because of one or two threats. You surely have also frequently heard about people who lost their personal information because spyware steals important information from their computer. These conditions make people become aware with the importance of protecting their computers from threats.
Amongst the many harmful threats that can harm your computer, spam is the most annoying one. Everyone who uses computer, access internet, or has email address is the target of spam. In fact, spam is not only annoying but also harmful. As you can read from a Spam Security Blog, criminals can use spam to help them doing their cybercrimes because spam is cheap and so tricky. As you know, cybercrimes are emerging these days and people who use computer and internet should be very careful. People sometimes cannot differentiate whether an email and link are valid or not because spam looks like a valid one. You can examine a spam email and you will surely conclude that it looks like a valid email. If you do not read it carefully you will probably become the next victim.
Are you trying to buy computer parts over the internet? Do you want to buy the parts from the best online computer store? Well, as you surely have known, finding an online computer store is very easy since there are lots of them out there. If you use search engines to help you find a computer store, you will receive huge lists of online computer stores. However, even though there are lots of stores, you have to remember that not all stores offer the same quality of services. Some stores are better than the others. Thus, if you want to get the best values of buying computer and their accessories over the internet, you have to manage to buy them from the best online store.
For the above purpose, you should carry out a research. In your research, you should firstly consider choosing a store that has had good reputation. As in your attempt to buy VGA over Cat5, you have to buy it from a reputable store since a reputable store usually provides great services. In this case, great services include assistance to choose a product, money back guarantee, and order tracking. Next, you should choose a store that prices their products competitively. You have to remember that cheap product doesn’t necessarily have cheap quality. Then, you should consider choosing a store that offers low shipping rates because low shipping rates will enable you to save money on products that you buy. You can compare shipping rates applied by several online stores to figure out a store that offers the lowest shipping rate.

Soon the question will be: which prepaid carriers don’t offer an Android smartphone. We saw the bigger prepaid carriers, such as MetroPCS and Cricket, offer Android handsets in the second half of last year, and apparently it’s started a trend. Plenty of prepaid carriers have followed suit. Left in the dark, to this point, has been Tracfone and its two subsidiaries: Straight Talk and Net10. Straight Talk seemed the most primed for an Android, since it offers unlimited everything for $ 45 per month. Starting in September, that will become a reality. According to a report filed at BTIG Reserach, and reported by FierceWireless, Straight Talk will get the Samsung Galaxy Precedent next month.
The handset itself is much like the Galaxy Prevail, which hit Boost Mobile earlier this year. That handset runs Froyo and features a 3.2-inch screen and an 800MHz processor. This would make sense for Straight Talk, since it could offer the handset at a price lower than other Android handsets, despite not offering a subsidy. As BTIG tells it, they will indeed charge $ 150 for the device, which is as reasonable for an unsubsidized handset as it gets. Look for it at Straight Talk, which is sold at Wal Mart stores, in September.
Earlier this week, in checking Phandroid, I noticed the following item. Apparently, Google has trashed the Just In section from the Android Market. I hadn’t noticed myself, because I hadn’t checked the Just In section for months. Apparently developers aren’t too happy about this, as it’s one way they can stand out from the larger, more prominent app developers. But in my experience the Just In section isn’t useful at all, and I can’t imagine developers get much traffic from it.
The normal disclaimer applies here: I am not a developer, so I don’t know exactly what generates them the most traffic. But I am an end user, and a voracious one at that. I’m always checking out various apps, wither by large or small developers, that can enhance my Android experience. In that experience, I’ve found the Just In section largely useless.
When I first started blogging here, I went to the Just In section all the time. It was a place, I thought, where I could find the latest Android apps and bring them to the AndGeeks readers. Truth be told, I don’t think I ever actually wrote about any of the apps I found there. What I found consisted mostly of apps I didn’t care about, or otherwise porn. Lot of porn. But that’s what happens when you open the floodgates for developers. You get lots of porn.
How is a regional carrier to compete with the big boys these days? If we’re to learn from MetroPCS and others, it’s by creating partnerships with services that they can bundle with their plans. Cricket did this last year, when they created an unlimited music download plan. But that works with only one handset, and a non-smartphone at that. MetroPCS has upped the ante with their new service, which ties in with Rhapsody’s unlimited music. It’s for Android users, too, and it might just be up your alley.
Here’s the skinny. Any MetroPCS customer with an Android handset, whether the 4G Indulge or one of the normal 3G models, can upgrade to the $ 60 plan to get unlimited music from Rhapsody. That allows users to download unlimited music to their Android devices. It also syncs with the web service, so you can stream while you’re at home and sync up your playlists with your Android. It’s just another way of enjoying all the music you can handle.
On Friday I buried the lead. In a post about the transparent Pandora widget, I posted a picture that included a clock widget. Apparently, AndGeeks readers were more interested in the clock than the Pandora widget. (And yeah, I screwed up in that post. There is a Pandora widget, but it’s not available if the app is on your SD card.) For those asking, it is the SiMi Clock Widget, and your enthusiastic curiosity is justified. It’s a pretty awesome clock widget that comes with plenty of customization options.
Despite the name, SiMi Clock Widget does not only provide the time. It has settings that let you customize how you view the time, date, weather, and battery settings. The last one might seem out of place, but it somehow works with SiMi. Oh, and it also has a built-in app launcher. These aspects of the widget can stretch all the way across your screen, giving you a one-row widget that provides a wealth of useful information. How it displays on your home screen is all up to you. That’s why I’m sure people will love this.
For some users, monitoring minutes and messages is not an issue. Unlimited plans are in, and with prepaid they can save you a lot of money. But not every prepaid plan includes unlimited minutes and messages. Virgin Mobile, which we covered along with the Motorola Triumph, has limits on its most attractive service plan. Other carriers, too, offer Android handsets with metered plans. Many carriers — and soon it’s likely to be more of them — offer limited data, too. Thankfully for prepaid users, a new widget lets you keep close track of your usage habits.
Via the xda blog comes the Prepay Widget. It’s one of those useful apps that does exactly what the name implies. It takes advantage of certain commands to retrieve relevant information, and then puts that information front and center, so you always know how many minutes and messages, and how much data you have left in your billing cycle. Because it’s a widget, you can’t even forget to check the app. It’s always there, taking up just a row on your home screen.
Getting paid to view ads on your mobile phone is no new concept. A few years ago it was a short-lived craze, with Virgin Mobile’s Sugarmama service leading the way. Users generally raved about it, loving that they could pay for airtime just by viewing ads on their phones. Other services realized some success, too — I remember about a half dozen similar companies that had booths at CTIA 2008. But soon enough Sugarmama stopped paying out, and the other services fell off everyone’s radar. It left in question the ability for such a service to provide long-term value to users, but that won’t stop newcomers from giving it a whirl. A new app in the Android Market gives you the opportunity to subsidize your cell bill by viewing select advertisements.
Tooyoou suffers first from a tough-to-type name, but once you get past that into the service you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what it can offer. Viewing the ads is much easier than it was for any previous incarnation of this business model. Previously you’d have to choose when you view the ads, or have the ads served following events such as phone calls. Tooyoou puts the ads in a widget on your home screen, so you have every opportunity to see more ads and make more money. It’s definitely the best implementation of this business model I’ve yet seen.
Which application do you use most frequently on your Android? For me it’s not even close. Every day when I’m out, whether in the car or taking a walk, I load up Pandora. For my money it’s the best freely available streaming radio option, and it works like a charm on my N1. The one thing it lacks is a widget, but it was only a matter of time before someone developed one. Imagine my delight, then, when I saw such a widget on xda. As you can see in the screenshot, it’s a transparent widget, too, blending seamlessly into your home screen. You can track forward, pause, thumbs up, or thumbs down a song without going back into the app. It’s also nice to see the artist and song on your home screen, rather than in the notifications bar.
There’s no Android Market listing for this one, so you’ll have to allow for non-Market apps (Setting -> Applications -> Check the Unknown Sources box) and then go to http://db.tt/jFS4st1 to download it.
