Funny iPhone ads by Samsung

We all loved the Mac vs PC ads, when Apple were taking the mickey out of PCs. Well the tables have turned with a clever set of ads from Samsung. You can see them all on Samsung’s Youtube channel  here, but my favourite is this one…

Samsung Galaxy S7 – my unsuccessful enquiry to Samsung.

samsung

I am a diehard Mac fanatic.  But only because Apple is the best.  So I am the worst kind of fan. I will switch if something better comes along.  At Christmas time I had a play with my cousin’s Samsung Galaxy S6. It was very nice. It’s the first time I’ve considered switching to Android.   I know I am flirting with the enemy here but I was wondering whether it might be time to do a series on switching from iOS to Android?  I reached out to Samsung. Read on to see how they responded!

How to write your own mobile phone drivers for OSX

In this post I posted some drivers for the Samsung D900 mobile phone. A lot of people contacted me asking how I wrote them. Well it was a bit of a fudge really. All I did was grab the Samsung D900i phone driver, and change every occurrence of D900i to D900!

I also did a version for the Optus D736 here and it seemed to work.  Here’s how I did it.

The best settings for movies for phones

Well, I’m on a bit of a run here with my new samsung D900 mobile phone, the latest being what are the best settings to compress a movie to watch on my phone. The phones resolution is 320×240, which I think is similar to an ipod. I use Handbrake to encode DVD’s, you can also use these settings to export from Quicktime pro, but Handbrake is free.

D900.jpg

I just got a Samsung SGH D900i mobile phone but it doesn’t sync address book contacts across bluetooth or USB with isync becasue isync only syncs with the D900.

I modified the isync plugin and now it’s working!
Here’s how to get it going… and after some comments I also added a version for the samsung G600 mobile phone.
There’s also a version for Optus Bird phones here.

Mounting Samsung D900i as USB drive in OSX

D900.jpg

Well it seems that OSX won’t recognise any Samsung phones. A bit disappointing given their TV adds on how Macintosh is friendly with everything! I rang Samsung and they said ‘we don’t support macintosh’

So to get my samsung D900i working on OSX I had to do this: (I’m not suggesting you do it for whatever reasons like you might sue me if it doesn’t work, but it worked for me).
