I have been a developer since 2002, starting in High School with VB6, Java and HTML; graduating college with a degree in Computer Science.

My work now involves desktop application development, architecture design and doing my best to stay on top of good practices and philosophies.

My range of technologies are from C/C++ and Java to Python and PHP. Recently I have delved into .NET and C#, with some Android development in my spare time.

I learn as much as I can from wherever I can, as such I am an early adopter, a technology enthusiast, and an update-oholic.

comment How safe is the android Lock Screen with password?
A lot of the bypass methods require your device to be rooted, or have USB debugging enabled - or to have access to your Google Account. If you weren't rooted, or had USB debugging enabled you can be reasonably assured of your security. The other exploits involve receiving a phone call.

comment How to prepare for upgrade to Jelly Bean - Droid Bionic
Koush (the developer for Carbon) stated that Motorola phones break the backup technique - so he is barring them from being able to use it (source: plus.google.com/u/0/103583939320326217147/posts/Mz4YyHRgkoj)

comment How do I delete an email in Gmail from the notification screen?
Agreed. Also, within Gmail itself it should have options to assign left-swipe and right-swipe, that way you could swipe left to archive, right to delete (or the other way). Maybe next update...

comment How can I stream PC desktop, 1:1 pixel ratio, to Android device?
It has been a while since I used it (and set it up). I will try when I get home, unless you figure it out.

comment Motorola Bionic and OG have bad audio jacks
This may be too localized to you, as I had no problems with my OG Droid. However, are you sure it isn't your pair of headphones? Did you try different headphones with the devices? Or was it the same headphones between both phones?

comment Can I mount external SD card read-only?
Do you have a source for your statement "The sdcard filesystem doesn't support being mounted as RO." ? Googling "sd card read only android" (without quotes) shows a lot of instances where this is the case; showing that it is supported, even if it is undesired.

comment Stream media from Play Store on Android To PC
The last time I rented a movie from the Play Store it had a "Download and watch offline" option (a pin, I think) that expired after a viewing. So it was at one time possible to temporarily download a rented movie.
