Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Android's user interface is based on direct manipulation, using touch gestures that loosely correspond to real-world actions, such as swiping, tapping and pinching, to manipulate on-screen objects, along with a virtual keyboard for text input. In addition to touchscreen devices, variants of Android are also used on notebooks, game consoles, digital cameras, televisions, automobiles and other electronics. Applications are usually developed in Java programming language using the Android software development kit (SDK), but other development environments are also available, including Delphi, Ruby and Visual Studio (using C++).

I'm looking for a low to midrange tablet. It can be in used condition. It doesn't need to be high performance. It does need a screen that is easily 100% visible under bright outdoor conditions. Android or iOS, either way. I just need to be able to see a full color display outdoors in broad daylight. Any common screen size will work (it shouldn't be huge but it would be an added bonus if it weren't tiny).

Learn Ruby Fundamentals

This course will introduce you to Ruby, as well as teach you about classes, methods, variables, data structures, loops, enumerable methods, and finishing touches.

I have a problem that I can't solve.

I am creating an Android App where there is a section showing user data.

The data is saved on a MySql database through Register.php and to get them use the Show.php file.

When I open the user activity in the app, there is a hidden field that contains the user's id, the app sends the id to the Php script and shows all the data of that user.

The problem is that the data is shown with a bit of delay, because it has to read the id from the app and show the filtered data.

What I would like is that in the Php file there was already the user id, so the display of the data on the app would be instantaneous, because so I already have the value of the variable that contains the id to use then in the Query.

To do this I thought of using sessions.

But it does not work.

In the Register.php file I inserted a session variable to store the value of the variable id_restaurants that I need in the show.php script to show that user's data through a Query.

But in the Register.php file it seems that the value of the variable $ _SESSION ['varId'] is not saved.

What am I doing wrong?

Here is the registration file: Register.php

<?php

session_start();


   if($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD']=='POST'){

       include_once("config2.php");

    $idUser = $_POST['idUser'];
    $name = $_POST['name'];
    $surname = $_POST['surname'];
    $restaurant = $_POST['restaurant'];
    $id_restaurant = $_POST['id_restaurant'];

    

Open in new window

Well I just bit the bullet and bought an 8" tablet called Amazon Fire which I really like because the case is made for it which makes it slimmer by design, and 8 inches with the case is not any bigger than most books at the bookstore. The 10" was too large for my liking.  I'll carry a laptop for those needs. It seemed to be the most popular one at Best Buy so I got it.

Now, it won't accept Android apps from Google Play, only Amazon Apps which is a deal-breaker for me, so I am off to hunting again.

Assistance in finding the best Google Android 8" tablet is greatly appreciated.

Hi,


Can I connect on my Android phone or Tablet an O365 shared mailbox? If yes can I send from that sharedmailbox too?

Thanks

Hi,

I have an old tablet android version 4.2.

It look like Active Sync with O365 is less stable then IMAP on O365. With Active Sync (normal connection to O365) I got "Can't connect to server" sometimes and it back.

With IMAP there is no issue. Is that possible? Maybe my client version is too old or  those Protocol are different...

Hi,

During O365 mailbox setting in my Android tablet there are 2 cases:

1- Use secure connection (SSL): checked by default

2- Accept all SSL certificates: Do I need to check it as well?

Hi,

When I set my O365 mailbox in my Android tablet I need to put all info manually like:

username: my email address
PW:
Server: Outlook.Office365.com

Is it normal? I though auto-discover should provide all info like in Outlook.

I use my android to take to the orphange where I teach English along with a speaker so we can play music and listening tracts, but it's almost impossible to get the files off the cloud and listen to them unless I unzip them first and then it takes up a lot of space on my phone. Is there a better way to download and unzip and MP3 from google drive or drop box and then play it on an android?

For Whatsapp group, a member can stop receiving further
chats by exiting the group but for a 1-to-1 whatsapp, this
can't be done.

Is there some sort of firewall app to block further communications
with an existing contact party in Whatsapp (as well as SMS)?

1. SMS (mass text) allows you to get individual responses.
2. MMS (group MMS) allows people to respond to the group.
With either message format, you can name the group and the group doesn't see the name, but, you can't remove people from the group after you name it.

Q: How do I remove people from an SMS group?

I know how to bold & italicize  words/fonts in Whatsapp  (by using  *...*  &  _..._).

How can I make colored fonts (I'm Ok to install an app but recipients of my
Whatsapp text  should not need to install the app) & underline them?

I'm on Galaxy Note4,  latest supported whatsapp (as I could 'Delete Message'
for all recipients).

Have only seen one app that could color the font in blue (but not other colors)

Removed a SBS2011 and migrated to a Server 2016 with 1st VM (PDC) and 2nd VM(Exchange 2016). Rekeyed the cert and everything works fine except Android devices. Get this error.
login error
Allot of information on the internet but haven't seen anything that's helped resolve the issue.

Microsoft updating the TLS to 1.2, but providers not having done this, as we are all having this problem with mobile phones and tablets using Outlook.
Some information about this on the internet but the links don't really give any resolution.

I'm confused about archiving. When I swipe to delete an episode I see it gets archived (I believe).

Seems to me I don't have any need for archiving. What's the thinking behind this feature?

Is there any merit to my archiving episodes? Where do they even go?

And, is there any way to disable it?

Thanks!

After Migrating Exch2016 from SBS2011 (Exch2010) I have some issues.
1. Outlook 2016 continually asks for PW and is disconnected
2. mobile email on Android will not connect to server.

Prior to Migrating some mailboxes and setting up internet facing on Exch2016 all seemed to be working OK,
Outlook 2013 connecting to non Exch2016 mailboxes is OK (have not tried connecting to Exch2016 mailboxes)
OWA works on Edge on Exch2016 for the 2016 mailboxes

I have removed internet facing settings from Exch2016 and returned them to Exch2010

Hi Experts,

I have a Sony BRAVIA 55 Model KDL-55W800C TV.
It runs Android TV.

Somehow it's locked itself in to a state for which I cannot watch broadcast TV.

I have rebooted Android TV numerous times.

I can get the "Watch TV" icon on the screen:

Watch TV icon
But when I click on the "Watch TV" icon, the "Google Play Movies and TV" screen opens up

Google Play Movies and TV screen
So I cannot see any way to watch TV.

Regards,
Leigh
