The guy you see to the left. Electrical/electronics engineering student mostly doing embedded development. Linux user since '05.

You might want to check what I am up to on my blog (in Portuguese mostly), my Twitter or my GitHub, or my skills are available on LinkedIn. Alternatively, if you want to see what I'm listening to, check my last.fm or Spotify profiles.

If you have any doubt/problem about my questions/answers, comment on them.

I will always try to comment why did I downvote, and will remove those downvotes if questions/answers are subsequently improved.

A reset of the phone didn't solve the problem, so I guess that's it. Accepting (late) the answer.

comment Spotify app closes randomly
@RossC I'm not playing games or using other heavy apps; usually it happens when I'm browsing the internet in Chrome with Spotify in the background: if I load a heavier tab, Spotify is closed.

comment Spotify app closes randomly
@RossC it's the stock ROM, I have no RAM managers/schedulers/etc... installed. I will reach to them.

comment Can't connect to Wi-Fi with special characters in the name
My language (Portuguese) has the 'õ' character, changing it (tried to English and Spanish) doesn't help; and adding the network name manually doesn't work, either.

For what it's worth, I have seen the same problem in my Galaxy Ace. I can be standing under certain routers, yet the connection will fail.

comment Calling from iPhone 4S to Galaxy S2
This is not normal, calls should work regardless of devices. Does her iPhone work for calling other phones?

comment Can't get out of airplane mode: option is greyed out
My Galaxy Ace is not old, either (I have had it for about 45 days), so I don't think the battery is problem.

comment If I use free WiFi in a hotspot, can data be easily sniffed?
The same principles can be applied for any device that connects over wireless: use only HTTPS web pages, don't use untrusted wireless networks etc...
