My New Nokia N95. Wow.

I just got my N95 and I've been playing with it for a little while. It's awesome. Here's some things I've been busy with:
  • The firmware it ships with is about 5 major revisions behind. Upgrade it ASAP.
  • I've found some great instructions on getting the N95 to work as a Bluetooth modem on OS X. He doesn't mention though that the APN listed on the connection settings page should be used for the GPRS CID string. (See update below.) I also recommend configuring the computer as an authorized device on the N95 so that you don't have to confirm the connection every time.
  • PyS60. Installed no sweat. Oh, the possibilities.
  • Google maps with GPS is great. The N95 comes with Nokia maps, but so far I prefer the Google app.
  • The Google mail app is great (except I can't seem to log out... wtf?)
  • ShoZu is very cool. It lets me geotag my photos and upload them to PicasaWeb and YouTube (plus a multitude of other services I don't care about). I'll have a map with all of my photos soon.
  • Sport Tracker is cool. It lets me log my location as I wander about Munich. Also, it should allow me to upload those tracks to Google Maps/Earth. Sweet.
I'm sure there will be more to add soon, probably in separate posts.

Update 2/3/08: The settings I used to set up the Bluetooth modem resulted in an exceptionally unstable connection. I've since changed my settings to match the official Nokia instructions and I've been getting much better results.

  2. The Nokia N95 is a much better phone in my opinion. The N95 Looks nicer, very much the same features (and better features in some cases) and can accommodate more memory. But my mobile is Nokia 8310 & it was unlocked as free from unlock free at a free of cost.

XBee ZNet 2.5 Wireless Accelerometer

I managed to put together a wireless accelerometer the other night using my two new XBees, an Arduino XBee shield, an XBee Explorer USB, an ADXL330, and some Python. I struggled a bit with some of it, so here's what I learned: First, a parts list. XBee 2mW Series 2.5 Chip Antenna Arduino XBee (with XBee Series 2.5 module) XBee Explorer USB ADXL330 I'm not sure exactly what the specs are on the XBee that comes with the Arduino shield. But, it is definitely a series 2.5. The first thing to do is to configure and upgrade the firmware on your XBees. To do that, you'll need X-CTU (for the firmware upgrade at least, but it's also nice for configuration) which, unfortunately, is only available for Windows. But, it works fine from VMware. First up, the XBee we'll hook up to the computer to read incoming data from the accelerometer: Plug one of the XBees into the Explorer (it's also possible to do this from the Arduino shield by shifting the two XBee/USB jumpers to U

Android Recipes and Snippets

I've put together a small collection of Android recipes. For each of these recipes, this is an instance of Context (more specifically, Activity or Service ) unless otherwise noted. Enjoy :) Intents One of the coolest things about Android is Intents . The two most common uses of Intents are starting an Activity (open an email, contact, etc.) and starting an Activity for a result (scan a barcode, take a picture to attach to an email, etc.). Intents are specified primarily using action strings and URIs. Here are some things you can do with the android.intent.action.VIEW action and startActivity() . Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW); // Choose a value for uri from the following. // Search Google Maps: geo:0,0?q=query // Show contacts: content://contacts/people // Show a URL: http://www.google.com intent.setData(Uri.parse(uri)); intent.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK); startActivity(intent); Other useful action/URI pairs include: Intent.ACTION_DIAL , tel://8675

Email Injection

Not so long ago, I ran a wiki called SecurePHP. On that wiki, there was one particular article about email injection that received a lot of attention. Naturally, with all the attention came lots of spam. As a result, I disabled editing of the wiki and content stagnated. Still, the email injection article remained popular. About a year later, the server that hosted SecurePHP died and I never had a chance to hook it all back up. I saved the article though and I'm reposting it now. It may be a bit old (I've been away from PHP for a long time), and I didn't write all of it, so feel free to leave comments about needed updates and corrections. Though this article focuses on PHP, it provides a lot of general information regarding email injection attacks. The PHP mail() Function There are a lot of ways to send anonymous emails, some use it to mass mail, some use it to spoof identity, and some (a few) use it to send email anonymously. Usually a web mailform using the mail() funct
