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 Why android is power hungry?
On my device, the Motorola Droid 3, there are pre-installed applications that I do not want, and cannot remove. They periodically run themselves and eat resources. Common names for this kind of software is: Blotware, crapware, garbageware, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crapware

comment Are Xoom files automatically transferred to a newly added microSD card?
On my stock 4.1.2 Xoom, I don't have write access to the MicroSD card (doesn't seem to be supported). Whenever I want to delete/add files I have to remove the card and put it into a computer. So you may need to do this to remove your smartphone files from the MicroSD card.

@RichardBorcsik It sits there, doing nothing, mocking me... :(

I wasn't able to get this working on mine. (Droid 3, Android 2.3.4, Play Store App version 3.9.16) Perhaps this is ICS+?

comment How to remove apps from “all downloaded” in Play Store
Just to add - this only removes them from the long list of "All Apps" it does not revoke any purchases you made (The Amazon AppStore remove does (or did last I checked), and removing there means repurchase later). And yes, the constant scrolling was highly annoying. Here's hoping they add this to the web store soon.

comment How do Google Play app updates work? Are they free?
@SachinShekhar When you pay for an app (Splashtop for example) you will always be able to get updates for free for Splashtop, since it was paid for. However, the developer released a different "upgraded" app (Splashtop 2). If I wanted those upgrades, I would have to purchase Splashtop 2. It is technically an "upgraded" version of Splashtop, but was released as a different app. So as long as it is the same app, you are not charged for updates; if they change apps you will have to purchase the new one.
