Today we are taking a look at Nvidia’s Version of a Android TV box setup. We have already seen the Nexus Player, Ouya, Fire TV and many others but none of them compare to the Nvidia Shield android TV box.  The processing power and specs on this iteration of Android tv box is really amazing and really aimed at the gamer.  The Nvidia shield box will come with a Tegra X1 processor sporting 256-core maxwell GPU, 3GB of ram and be able to display in 4K ultra HD.  This device will be a Android Gamers dream.

Just like all the other Shield device Nvidia has made you will be able to stream games with Nvidia Grid. What’s more is that NVIDIA has worked with partners to port major game titles to Android, specifically for devices powered by the X1 processor. Games like Crysis 3, Doom 3: BFG Edition, Borderlands 2, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, The Talos Principle, Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance and Resident Evil 5 among others.

Now the best part off all about this device is the price just $199.99 this includes the Nvidia Shield android tv Box, shield remote, and shield controller. The release date is in may 2015 in the us. I for one cant wait to check this device out.

Android Kanging

Android Kanging

What is Android Kanging or to Kang a rom, theme, or mod? Lets start with a Android definition of Kanging: To have one’s developer code and work taken, manipulated, rebranded, and re-released by someone else with no credit given. In no way is this illegal or even stealing because android is open source and cant be sold. Open source is awesome :D. This practice of Kanging someones work is done quite often and is very much frowned upon by all in the Android Community. It is basically a slap in the face to the developer that originally created it. It steals the Glory and praise from the creator of the code and the coppier takes credit instead. I think many times the Kanger knows he is copping someones work but doesnt even remember or know whos it is and is just lazy or forgets to credit the right people. There is so much android code and awesomeness floating around the internet some new developers dont even know who to credit.

So really to avoid being a kanger it is simple.

1. Find out whos code you are using in your rom and credit the right person

On that note please go make the best and most amazing rom you can with as much cool code from anywhere you can find it. Us in the Android community love the work of all developers and making one awesome rom is the best.  But remember that Kanging has a bad connotation if not giving credit where credits due.

Examples:

If you have SuperSU in your rom you need to Credit Chainfire

If you have Superuser in your rom then Koush would be the guy.

really its pretty simple so lets give credit where credit is due.

Below is picture of Android Open Kang Project or AOKP which is a example of a Good Kang Rom. rhis rom takes lots of code and puts it all together to make one awesome rom but give credit to the right developers in doing it.

Anker matte screen protector

IMG_2243

Im very protective of my devices so the day Anker asked me to review there product i was very happy as i was soon going to be buying a few protective products and i always start with my screen so this is my review of the Anker matte screen protector given to me by Anker for a fair and honest review. First off Anker gives a lifetime warranty on all screen protectors so no matter how long you had it on they will replace it so huge plus 1 to Anker.   I received the package on time and packaging was done very well and and inside the box (eco. friendly)  was a white sleeve that was rather thick to prevent bending of any kind to the screen protectors which was very good idea as other screen protectors i have purchased were not packaged quite so well as these so that was my first good impression and along with the 3)screen protectors was – Microfiber cloth – Bubble Removal Card – Dust removal sticker – Manual. The provided users manual was simple to read and follow unlike other manuals the have such fine print i usually toss them aside and go for it. The note 4 is a rather unique and tough device to apply a screen protector to as the edges are curved so i was leery of getting the screen protector on just right for me but i had no issues applying the protector following owners manual and i even had a small dust speck almost in the center but i used the provided dust removal sticker after lifting the screen protector from the corner and the sticker worked perfect and i have never used one before so that was a great item to have included in your kit. after the installation it was time to put it to a few everyday tests, first i checked what i use also which is the S-pen and i had zero issues using S-pen so i moved on to color saturation compared to another note 4 and was very pleased to see no noticeable differences as well as just using hand and fingers to swipe screens or everyday actions using fingers such as gameplay which i do alot of. I next moved outdoors where i work in construction around dust/snow and rain and i was able to test in all 3 elements and even in 22 degree weather or bright sunlight i had not one issue with seeing screen or any corners lifting ect.  Im very rough on my phones and i am in a job where i need my screens protected and this anker screen protector is exactly what i needed to keep my note 4 safe and scratch free. For a price of $5.99 for 3 as listed http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NG6H4EA  I think its too good a deal to pass up for 100% screen protection. I also used a Zagg Invisible shield protector and paid $10.45 for just 1 but i noticed “halo” affect around the edges and like i said im very picky so it has since been replaced with the Anker matte protector. As you will see from the pictures the form and fit is just outstanding using the Anker protector and i also noticed some other companies cover the sensors now to some its no big deal and i understand but in my case i love the look of a form fitting/clean screen protector. Hope this helps answer some questions and really hope you give Anker a try because im very happy to be using there protector on my note 4. saved this for last for a reason but inside the Anker packaging is a small square paper asking “happy” or “unhappy” with instructions on what to do depending on answer and i can now answer “happy” added a few pictures also on white note 4 for added viewing options
