We at Eccentrica Technologies have just released Speedometer app for iPhone and iPad. This GPS based Speedometer app lets you keep an eye on your speed whether you are in a car, a bus, a train, a boat, riding a bike, running on foot or even skiing downhill. The app shows an analog and digital speed of the device you’re carrying. You can also turn on a speed alarm to avoid traffic tickets and the iPhone can fit in your dashboard for replacing your old boring speedometer.
The app takes just a few moments to lock the GPS and you’re ready to go. Download this app today for iTunes store now.Read More

Like most of us Internet users, I use a few WiFi routers too. This post is to confirm that the Google Maps and Latitude team knows where exactly your WiFi router is placed. This information is loaded up on the Google servers and whenever somebody connects this WiFi router and uses Google Maps, it s hows you near that router. Pretty neat so far? Read on for a catch, a trouble and well, a kind-of solution.
Memory cards for your mobile phones, cameras and other gadgets have been common for a few years now. While cleaning some drawers I came across several memory cards from past that are as small as 64 MB in size. Took a few photos for you if you’re interested ( go beyond the break )Read More
Just did bit of a hack and it feels so good to control this Nokia phone running Symbian with Nintendo Wii controller. The feel is even greater when you play a game using this remote when your Phone is connected to a TV via TV-out cable. Please note this solution only works on Symbian S60, Symbian ^3 and Symbian Anna and has been tested on a Nokia N8 with Symbian Anna installed on it.
Here we go and Best of Luck!
Hardware used in experiment
- A Nokia N8 smart phone with Symbian Anna
- A Wii remote controller RVL 003 (Don’t have one? Click here to buy)
- A USB desktop keyboard or a standard Bluetooth keyboard (Only for touchscreen-only phones. Optional for phones with physical keyboards).
How to connect
- Install a simple application named MOBIPad (link at the end of the post).
- Run Mobi Pad and from options menu choose to connect to Wiimote
- Press 1 and 2 simultaneously on the Wii controller and wait till the app says connected
- Done! The remote now works all across your apps and everywhere in the OS.
Catch for Touchscreen users
Touch screen phones like Nokia 5800 ExpressMusic or Nokia N8 do not have a physical keyboard and hence Options menu cannot be launched to start connection with the wiimote. You can use a Bluetooth keyboard or a normal USB keyboard to access the menu. Simply connect the Bluetooth keyboard via bluetooth, or use the USB connector that came with your Nokia N8 to connect a desktop USB Keyboard to your phone. When you run MOBIPad, press Windows/Menu key to open the menu and there you are with a working app on touch-screen.
You can download MOBIPad application from this link.
Note: Please note this program is provided as is. I’ve found it working and apparently it doesn’t do anything wrong to the phone.Read More

Yes, you read it right, and the launch date is not far. BlackBerry 9980 is being announced on October 27th in an exclusive event at Burj Khalifa, Dubai.

So many people asked me this, I thought I’d rather make a post out of it. BlackBerry just released five different handsets this week and Bold 9900 and Bold 9930 are two of them. While it is a valid question, the answer is very simple. BlackBerry Bold 9900 and BlackBerry 9930 are exactly identical in features and hardware except only one difference. BlackBerry Bold 9900 is a GSM phone that operates on GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 networks while BlackBerry Bold 9930 also supports CDMA. Bold 9930 works on CDMA 800/1900 networks in addition to the GSM 850/900/1800/1900. In simple words for example in US, BlackBerry Bold 9930 will work on Verizon and Sprint Nextel while 9900 will work on rest of the networks.
Yes 9930 works on both GSM and CDMA, so if you want to switch back and forth from CDMA to GSM and back, it’s better to grab 9930.Read More
