1799810 976274295735623 1145734967 n a Developer Review: First 24 Hour with Surface Pro 3

it’s Finally here, I’ve got my i7 babe. Could not resist it with any other alternatives. this felt so belonging to me after checking all the reviews. there are tones of articles and videos out there reviewing this machine in different aspects. I’m not a marketer, I’m not associated with any competitor, I’m a buyer who choose this device after months of search for cheaper alternatives providing same performance but at the end I came into this, I loved the design and concept since the first, since they released the first version of Surface Pro, But I never seen myself financially ready to invest around $1700 for this.

Well 2 days ago I ordered it from a Local Company here in Malaysia and got it yesterday, I can say this is bold and beautiful. everything looks prefect, it is not just another version of a product pushing as a new trend just to buy some new clients mind. there has been thought behind aspects of design on this product.

it’s beautiful, I got the type cover cause there was no better protection choice, what I imagined after seeing tones of videos was something not too friendly, I knew it’s good for typing, but I was never sure if it’s good for developing on the go. Well I should say the keyboard is way better than many laptop keyboards. it’s thin but it’s working like a real thing.

the screen is amazing, it’s beautiful and gives you the real feeling of quality. on most of your apps you can see the menus and toolbars are small, very small, But it’s totally readable, with the high resolution on this thing you will not miss a thing. I never expect to be able doing photo editing with this on touch, so it’s fine for me to not be able using touch in some graphical apps like photoshop or programming IDEes. touch meant to be for touch, for browsing, for playing.

I installed everything I need on my Work Station. The battery is amazing, it does not show the remaining battery on hourly estimation, after some search I found it’s because of the instantsleep which requires hyper-v to be off, so there is no power options too but you can simply get them by enabling hyper-v.

it gets hot, when I use heavy apps, running virtual machines and so on, so far it’s fine, even my HP Laptop goes that hot when I’m running those kind of things, I don’t wanna hold this while I’m working on a virtual machine right?

the Pen is Good, Really good, the integration with One Note was broken once I installed Microsoft Office, but it solved as quick as a 10 second restart.

the type cover and the kickstand is not really meant to be used on your chest when you lay down, thats what I used to do always with my asus eee pc always.

Conclusion!

it’s an amazing device, Only thing I can say is that it’s awesome, workable and handy. I love it. it’s expensive, but considering if you can get the same thing from other brands will convince you that it worths it.

Overcome Home Screen Redraws and Slow Home Screen on Moto G

Moto G is a great phone but it seems everything is going to fast in term of memory, the companies are coming with phones with larger amount of ram and our phones get slow and retarded in a short time.

I’m running latest Kitkat 4.4.4 and my phone is rooted. using Performance Control app helped me to overcome the redraws which recently happens a lot on Nova Launcher, I’m sure this must be happening to some of you in other launchers too.

Performance Control is an Open source app available on XDA which you can download it’s latest version here.

This app requires root and installed busybox. make sure you install the busybox libraries after getting it from Google Play, installing busybox alone won’t get it done.

After opening Performance Control navigate to Memory Settings and set “Minfree Taskkiller Presets” to Medium. check the tick for “Set on boot” and reboot your phone.

Hope it helps you too.

how to check domain mx records with nslookup

Hi,

So I have this client whom recently moved to Google Apps and I wanted to make sure if she has setup her mx records properly for her domain as she complaining about the email issue. Thus I thought it could be useful to post this quick tip here.

Lets get to the job, if you are linux open your Terminal and if you are on Windows launch Command Prompt.

You first need to launch nslookup tool by typing “nslookup”. Then you will need to tell nslookup to look for mx records by giving it “set q=MX” option, and in the end type the domain name you want to be checked.

So an example of the whole process will be :

 

Who is crazy? me or everyone else?

Did this every happen to you that everything that is happening around you looks crazy and insane? Things people are doing and subjects they are talking about? This often happens to me that I’m watching their lips moving and talking but I hear no voice, I do hear that as some noise and all that is in my mind is “What’s up with him?” lingering.

You’ll wake up and go to university taking a useless subject or what they called “Computer Systems Management” which is more about how the heck some company is going to success (I have no idea on how it relates the term of Computer Systems Management). The lecturer asks the class if you are familiar with this term and you all answer no, and he gaves 20 minutes of time for you all to look for it in the freaking internet and yet you are haring all these and thinking with yourself “What the heck are you talking about? Aren’t you there to teach me these instead of asking me to look for them myself?”.

That stupid class ends and all you remember is you are sitting in the bus while having your head stick to the window looking out while there is some hard and heavy song playing in your earphones and the feeling that you are somewhere between them, you nor see what is happening outside the window, it is kind of similar to the old silence movies from Charlie Chaplin and once you are about to get think about these the bus brakes will alarm you that hey, it’s the end of station, you have got to walk the rest of the way. Walking on those bumpy ground of so called city of Kuala Lumpur to reach my place, I don’t like to call it house, nothing there feels like a house, it’s more of a cage, something to lay down and recall all the memories of the day and call them off with a single smoke.

there is this rain, something good that can makes you stare, right out at the sky and thinking of all the things you missed earlier today. Your phone is ringing, it’s your angel of death, or so called your boss. why is my website is not working? Oh great, now you have to explain about how the heck rain can causeit, he is saying this that why I can access other websites but not only mine, and you say you’ll fix it in a while. you can’t even enjoy the rain, cause it’s all crazy. you might think I’m crazy after reading this, but what if it’s me who thinks you are crazed cause you actually read this?

 

Broken fonts in Google Chrome

Capture2 300x242 Broken fonts in Google Chrome

Only after Google Chrome on my computer updated itself to it’s latest stable version which is “Version 38.0.2125.101 m” I started noticing that some issues with fonts on websites I daily use! most of the websites had this ugly time new romans looking font on them while their css styles in the inspect element was showing the font addressing in styles is fine!

but seems it’s not only font’s that is being broken, I could not see some contents which were in Persian properly too, it seems the new version of Google Chrome somehow messes up with the Encoding of the Page!

At first I thought it is some plugin update or something that caused it, you know chrome is too friendly to badwares of developers who inject ads and other extras to pages without your authorizaiton through plugins, thus I disabled all the plugins but I found there is no chance for a fix! I even reset all the settings I had on my chrome!

I found out this issue is fixed on the Canary Version of chrome which is  basically the next upcoming version which is still under it’s final test.  So it’s clear this issue will be fixed on the “Version 40.0.2184.0″ of chrome as the current latest canary is stating it in it’s about page!

By the way I suggest you all to check out Opera too, I’m an extremist Opera lover! I’m using chrome only for having different session on some websites! icon biggrin Broken fonts in Google Chrome
