- Endtroducing, The Year Of The Wabbit 3 februari 2011
Noonski Wishes, friends, family, old workmates, XDA Brothers a peaceful and healthy Year of The Wabbit.
Especially for the people that noticed that there was no merry #christmas or happy new year from me.
I was saving it for this moment. As the Gregorian calendar does not always fit everyone’s personal needs.
This does not mean I did not enjoy #christmas or the Gregorian New Year, I just chose another moment, to start something new.
So Happy Year of the Wabbit.
Did I mention I happen to be a Wabbit.
….. But wait there’s more,…. Tune in to www.noonski.tv @ 18:30 CET everyday for one Documentary. It’s sort of a 365 project, but instead of a picture I post one Documentary.
……. Don’t worry I’ve planned ahead, You’ll be reminded through FaceBook and Twitter in Time, and you can always block the app.
Oh yeah, I also finished and uploaded a new Version of my Personal HTC Desire Rom. @XDA [ROM]N.S.A.GingerBlackness.2011-02-03.FF&UPD 96&93MB Basic 2.29 Froyo
- Noon’s Desire Unplugged and a bit of Politics 10 juni 2010
I dived into my new HTC Desire, enabling every link and service possible.
I would be updated constantly on Flickr, FaceBook, Twitter and Google updates. With everyone being able to constantly know where I was, what I was doing and which pictures I was taking. Live Life to the fullest in a new digital connected world.
Now I have network communication set to off until I need it and use Wifi when I’m at home. I have removed the linked accounts on my phone and switched to separate applications to handle FaceBook and Twitter. And I have set everything to never sync automatically and disabled the location service. (Which I now set manually when I feel it is needed) Main gain, besides feeding the marketing use for Google Adds and soon to be direct local offers, is extended battery life. That is as long as I don’t play The Legend of Zelda or try many different apps and scene configurations to much.
You play with your phone or keep it continuously connected you will need an extra battery to make it through the day. So if you’re not much of a believer of the possible implications a continuous connected phone has on the foreseeable future of broad public acceptance of these services, then do it to save your battery or at the least to have a bit of fun with friends concerning where you are at the moment.
Here’s a few steps you can follow to get unplugged.
Disabling Automatic Syncing.
Go To your Apps >> Settings >> Accounts and synchronisation >> Disable Automatic Syncing.
(you can try disabling Background services but you will learn quickly enough that some apps will not do their mojo with this one disabled)
Also check the separate syncing settings for the accounts and set to not sync automatically or to your liking.
Remove Facebook, Twitter and Flickr linking.
Go To your Apps >> Settings >> Accounts and synchronisation >> Select account >> Remove Account.
Disable Location services.
Go To your Apps >> Settings >> Location >> Disable both Network & GPS locating.
Go To your Apps >> Settings >> Privacy >> Disable using your location for search and services.
Go To your Apps >> Google Maps >> Menu >> Latitude >> Menu >> Privacy >> Set your location manually or disable completely.
Official Twitter Application
When posting a new tweet >> Disable Location in the top right corner.
Network Plug in
Add Widget >> Settings >> Mobile Network
(and off course any of the other ones like Sync all if you have chosen to still sync a few accounts)
Just be aware that you can control how your device syncs, you can choose to update apps manually when you need them or still leave apps open to syncing so the “Sync Everything” will update all those apps. But you can save some juice without the need for Juice defender this way.
Now beside having a bit of a negative tone on some of this, I also have to say I’m hypocrite and use some of these services to my enjoyment. Yesterday was Voting day here in NL and late into the night, the news on public television was reporting on the polls. Funny enough, against my expectation, they actually reacted to tweets.
They where replaying speeches from political leaders from a few hours earlier, but still had Live on the screen. After next repeats of these speeches they reacted and specifically stated that the video was from earlier on in the night. They reacted in explaining what the effects of “Lijstverbinding” would have on the close call outcome. They reacted to a leaked image of the mayor newspapers headlines for the next morning (at 2:44). They reacted to jokes about the touch screen with the statistics and made a few other reference jokes to tweets on air. A totally new experience for me seeing tweets of interest I saw coming past with #TK2010 and even my direct tweets to the news, not being ignored and used to fill the air time. Even though there was a little System overload at one point which I mistakenly in paranoia saw as censoring, i have hope of renewal in the established media. If we stretch news outside of the snack sized sound bites and give room for public input, maybe then there’s hope that the media gives answers to the questions Joe Public has in regards of what they report. Even if Politics are not your strongest point.
