Three introduces revolutionary no data limit plan for smartphone users

All One Plan customers on the Three mobile network will now have access unlimited data access - so they email, enjoy and access apps, maps, social media updates, emails, music, games and video calls on their smartphone without fear of incurring additional charges.

The One Plan was already revolutionary when it was introduced in July – giving customers all the calls and texts they need each month along with 1GB of data.

They are already the market leader for smartphones and I guess this is a plan to maintain this position in the future as well.

The One Plan now offers customer 2,000 any-network minutes, 5,000 Three-to-Three minutes, 5,000 texts and all-you-can-eat data - all from just £25 a month.

Twitter on Christmas

Twitter has been down for a while today. All I get is this:

I guess this is a sign that Twitter is getting popular and unable to keep up with the new demands - definitely needs increase capacity.

Mark Zuckerberg is Time's Person of the Year 2010

I know you know and this is old news. However, my post is about the negative comments and discussions on the net on why Zuckerberg doesn't deserve to be the Time's Person of the Year.

I just wish they would just shut up. Most people love Facebook and that's the first thing they check on their PC, or Macs and now their mobile phones, when they wake up.

If you don't like Facebook and worried about privacy, just close your account.

In University, you are nobody if you don't have a Facebook account. If you don't, how are you going to know about the cool events happening and how are you going to discuss your group projects.

Facebook's the place where we get back in touch with friends whom we went to nursery with and with old girlfriends who are now old with kids.

Automated Facebook profile hacks

Soon after I hacked my Facebook profile the old fashioned way, I found out that several sites can now automate the whole process and have your hacked profile ready in less than a minute.

In my previous attempt, I couldn't align my pictures properly and I found out that I had forgotten to take my two lines of profile info into account.

I used the Pic Scatter online tool developed by McCann Ericsson, to create another profile hack. It's really easy and you can even specify the number of lines of your profile info. However, it does take out the fun part of hacking and the trial and error process and ultimate satisfaction.

My Facebook profile hacked

Don't worry, my Facebook account wasn't hacked.

I was inspired by all the creative Facebook profile hacks out there and set out to hack my own Facebook profile as well. Check out my first effort below:

I couldn't get the images to align perfectly but I think it's good enough for a first try. I have a lot of idea but will try them when I finally submit my thesis.

Adamok.net is now 4 years old

I don't how but I totally missed the blogversary of Adamok.net. I started blogging on this blog on the 2nd of Decemeber 2006 and before I knew it, suddenly realised that I have been blogging for 4 long years now. This blog has come a long way and initially I planned it as a parody blog aiming to poke fun at so called SEO Experts out there, but later on I had a change of heart as I did some research and found out that some of the advice on those blogs did work.

Later on I somehow started to blog more and more about gadgets and less about e-marketing or SEO. I have reviewed gadgets - mostly mobile phones for 3 and later for Nokia and other companies and hope to review more amazing and different gadgets once I submit my PhD thesis.

It's been a fun and rewarding 4 years.

Happy Belated Birthday Adamok.net

The New Google Nexus S

The Nexus S is Google's latest mobile. It is the first to run Google's new OS, Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Featuring the gorgeous Contour display with curved glass screen, this phone has a 4.0" WVGA (480x800), Super AMOLED touch screen with anti-fingerprint coating.

The Nexus S is powered by a 1GHz Cortex A8 (Hummingbird) processor with 16GB iNAND flash memory to take all your pictures and videos taken via the 5 megapixels (2560x1920) camera or the front facing one VGA (640x480). The back facing takes videos with 720 x 480 video resolution and
H.264, H.263 MPEG4 video recording.

They have packed in loads of stuff in the phone including a Three-axis gyroscope, Accelerometer, Digital compass, Proximity sensor and Light sensor.

However, what I was really concerned about was the battery life. Well, according to Google, the phone has a Talk time up to 6.7 hours on 3G (14 hours on 2G) and a Standby time up to 17.8 days on 3G (29.7 days on 2G). That's quite amazing if it's true.

Check out the full specs here.
