Solution to Vibration for Handcent on Android

Sometime ago, I upgraded my android phone upgraded from 1.5 to 2.1. Ever since then, my Handcent application and other messaging application no longer vibrate whenever a SMS came in.

Finally I found a work around, Sound Manager. This application enable you to switch instantly to ring mode, vibration, or mute. Because it exposes the sound & volume controls of the android phone, you can now change the vibrating setting and now whenever SMS came in, it will vibrate using handcent.

You can find this Sound Manager application FREE on Android market. If you find this information useful. Drop a comment. ")

Give up your Seat!?

If you have been taking SMRT in Singapore, you will be hearing a woman group singing to remind and encourage passengers to stand in line, give way to alighting passengers when the train is arriving. In short, Dim Sum Dollies are promote gracious behaviour on public transport by singing.

Beside singing, their photos are pasted in MRT too. This is one of them to remind passenger to give up seat to those who need it more.

In this case, they remind you to "Give up your seat"...but what seat are they talking about?

or maybe someone have really given up the seat. See, no seat. LOL

If you are wondering who is Dim Sum Dollies, you can read more about them here.

Seesmic Authentication error on Android

If you have experience a sudden Authentication error while using Seesmic like me, do not be alarm. The cause has nothing to do with Seesmic but Twitter end.

Starting 31st August 2010, all applications using Twitter will be required to use “OAuth” to access your Twitter account.

OAuth is a technology that enables applications to access Twitter on your behalf with your approval without asking you directly for your password. You only need to re-enter your password once and there after it will take over.

The advantage of OAuth has taken security to a higher level as the applications now are no longer allowed to store your password. In the event you change your password, the applications will continue to work on your devices.

So in order for you to continue using Seesmic, all you have to do is to delete your account in that application and re-login the account. Once it is being done, everything will be back in order.

You can check the list of application you authorized at You can also  revoke the access any application from the list anytime you want.
