I love to program, tinker with things and generally a curious person. My career started with developing DOS TSRs in x86 Assembler. My daily work includes programming in Delphi (Windows), Ruby on Rails (Linux) and Java (Android).

My company Hagel Technologies makes network bandwidth monitor DU Meter and other software. I sometimes write in my blog.

comment Can I have a “force close a specific app” shortcut on my screen?
@t0mm13b: I've added a screenshot of my task, it's pretty self-explanatory.

comment Can I have a “force close a specific app” shortcut on my screen?
@t0mm13b: Although this is not something that I would like to do (still a multi-step process), this one specific case is probably ok task for a task killer. After all, all I want to do is kill a misbehaving task quickly and effortlessly (on demand - not automatically).

comment Does disabling 3G while having WiFi save battery?
@Zuul: I updated my answer a bit. There is no official documentation on this subject, because it is very device-dependent...

comment Phone intermittently not responding to screen touches
Looked into this, apparently availability of these settings varies depending on Android version and if the phone vendor enabled them or not... I think logcat is the only easy debugging method then. You can also install a free logcat application from the market, but hooking up phone to a computer is more convenient, especially when the phone is unresponsive.

comment How to prevent adb shell from exiting upon Ctrl+C
Ctrl+Z suspends a process, e.g. you have to kill it later with kill or killall. This workaround is better than nothing, though...

comment Android Market: Comments not consistent
Your assertion is correct. As a Android developer, I can see all comments for my app (in the Google's Android app management interface), and many of them are not in English. I can see only English comments on my phone. Auto-translating comments is not viable as the translation technology is not quite there yet.

comment How can I disable the Android Market temporarily?
Thanks, that new Market with PIN code at least solves the fiscal problem.

comment How can I disable the Android Market temporarily?
I was unable to find any PIN-related settings in Android Market. Are you sure they are available in the dumbed-down "web-style" Market available in Honeycomb?

comment How to plug in an Android Tablet and show it's screen on PC or Laptop for training session?
You want a VNC server for Android. They are available, but this is off-topic on superuser.com. This question should be migrated to android stack exchange site.
