Engineering Student in the field of Information Technology, with a knack for anything related to the technology, computing, programming, gaming and gadgets. So yes, I am a geek and I often get asked to fix computers.

I am a self learner and I like to learn by hacking.

Not a great coder, but anything I code is done with passion for that technology and not just because I have to or I can do. I love the concept of creating rich experiences and making life a whole lot easier by instructing the machine to your whims and fancies.

Application Developer for the Windows 8 and Windows Phone platforms and a Microsoft Student Partner.

I own an Droid and hence most of life would already be wasted flashing new ROMs and restoring backups iPhone 5.

Avid Twitter-er too and all around a nice person.

Oh, and an extremely proud owner of the PlayStation 3 and the Google Nexus 7. Also I love these genre of games - RTS, Action, FPS and Simulation.

comment Can a Nexus 7 connect to an Android 2.2 Wi-Fi tethering access point?
Of course you don't need to. Just because there's Internet Explorer, it doesn't mean that you don't need Google Chrome! ;-)

comment Selecting 720p format on Nexus 7
I have the SAME problem. For the sake of clarification, the Nexus 7 as such does not have a Camera app, so what @Asryael has done is downloaded the Camera Launcher app which is the same thing I have done. Also, I tried using the Camera JB+ app too, but that app just crashes.

@t0mm13b - No, that did not make any difference. Chrome isn't hogging 300+MB, anyhow.

comment What is the difference between swiftkey and swiftkey x?
Swiftkey wasn't a beta. Just that 'Swiftkey' was renamed to 'SwiftKey X' to indicate a brand new version.

comment Samsung GT 7.7 hung after charging
Every device has a recovery menu. Google it to know how to access it for YOUR device. It involves holding a couple of buttons at boot so that it shows the recovery menu instead of the traditional boot up screen.

A factory data reset is in order. If you're on Custom ROM, the ROM might be buggy.

comment Unexpected reboot during app install has left phone with no space
I know that. You can always uninstall a few apps and re install them again. I don't think that's a lengthy procedure. And I don't think I've stated that the app is downloaded to the SD Card. I've stated that the DATA that the app download (most of the times) goes to the SD Card.
