Nvidia Needs Fixing

Here’s the deal. Nvidia needs to shut up about it’s game plan.  It needs to just “get it done.”  

Nvidia has way too many conferences and “hot air”. 

If the product isn’t ready to ship, then shut up.  When will X be done?  I don’t want to hear about it.

Now, I am looking forward to having a CUDA 720p smartphone. Thanks.  When?  Don’t tell me.  Just GET IT DONE.

uf82 thanks you.

Android App: RedPhone

RedPhone by WhisperSystems

First Impression. Installed RedPhone and a friend of mine in a distant land installed it too. I’m on a dual-core snapdragon. He’s on a quad-core snapdragon. Set up, made the call.  Seemed okay for about 4 minutes before the call was dropped.  Second call was dropped after about 2 minutes.
This isn’t going too well.  If you have better luck, tell me about it in the comments below. 

Note: We did not change any settings. We used the defaults.

Currently, I use Cisco WebEx to chat online. Works great. http://www.webex.com/

Gold Lock (Android app)

I want to try out Gold Lock for Android.  I signed in.  It runs.  I’m confused about adding contacts.  I’ll need a couple friends to try it with me.  The manual says I have to put the device name of my contact.  Odd.  Did I put in a unique device name when I registered?  I’m not sure how that works. 

uf82 thanks you.


How fast is your Internet connection?

Seoul’s telecoms provide free WIFI to their customers in the subway system and on many buses.  Well, I think it’s free as part of their service plans. (Buses use a kind of WIFI AP called “WiBro” to keep buses connected to the web) 

Generally, I’ve noticed LTE is faster than WIFI in Seoul.

Kaspersky for Android

This is really a good app, but it has some quirks that make me really upset.

1. Randomly, without warning it disappears.  After hours and hours, I find it is missing.  I turn it on to find I have to log in again.  The app should NOT do this.


2.  The app is running. The service is running. It’s working.  I click to “enter” the app and the stupid thing stalls for what seems like forever with some lame message saying the app, which remember is ALREADY RUNNING FINE, is starting.  Excuse me, I don’t have time for your stupidity.


Why do I have to register for anti-theft before being able to see the app settings and manually scan? The app is already running. It’s scanning app updates.

Me: I want to access the settings and reports and whatnot.
App: No! You must register for anti-theft or login.
Me: Okay. I’ll enter my login credentials.
App: We’re sorry, the service is unavailable.
Me: Piece of Trash. I want to change settings.

uf82 thanks you.


Are these real people following my blog? I have more followers to this blog in one day then in the first month on Twitter. It’s almost like some are bots.

If they are bots, it might be helpful to give the writer a feeling to continue writing. I haven’t looked into how many dormant, abandoned blogs there are. Blogging definitely is a different animal to say Twitter.

uf82 thanks you.
