Install Android Applications Directly From Your Computer With Android Injector

No comments
For most Android users, the common method to install applications is either via Android Market or download the apk file, copy it to device and then install it from there. If your device is like mine which strangely cannot download any apps from the market then the first method is not an option. The second method is pretty tedious because you have to switch between your PC and Android. A 3rd and easier method exist and it is via Android Injector. It allows you to quickly and easily install apps that you have downloaded to your computer in the form of ".apk" files onto your Android phone or device. If your wondering where to download apk files, you can at the developer website (if ever they post it)or from websites such as Getjar.com.

How to Use Static IP for WLAN in Nokia C3-01?

1 comment
I recently received my company issued cellphone unit which is Nokia C3-01. Aside from its sleek look and touch & type feature, it is already WIFI capable. I tried connecting it to our company's wireless network and it connected fine but my problem was similar to my android device, it uses DHCP IP address which is inside the firewall and requires proxy settings in the browser to be able to browse the web. Since I haven't found a way to set the proxy settings on the browser level, I tried looking for ways to change the dynamic IP into Static IP. At first, I thought it was not possible because I already tried everything and I can't find the correct menu to configure the Static IP. Fortunately for me, I stumbled on it when I was about to give up.
