[Android] Market 3.0.26

Image
The new Android Market version 3.0.26 is out in market.android.com. But too bad, as usual, Google limits it by devices.

Google Announced it on July 12. But until today, its still not available for my SGS and SGS2.

Google says "The new Android Market will be rolling out in the coming weeks to Android 2.2 and higher phones around the world". But for those who wants to try it now, you can download it HERE.



Enjoy!

(In case you decides to use the old market, you can do so by uninstall in Settings -> Manage Applications -> select Market App -> Uninstall)

Raspberry Pi - Alpha board in production

Image
There are progress on Raspberry Pi - the alpha boards are in production!

For those who don't know about this $25 PC, can read about it here:
http://www.raspberrypi.org/?p=28http://www.geek.com/articles/chips/raspberry-pi-25-pc-goes-into-alpha-production-20110728/?hy=2

I was very excited when saw the official announcement of the board production.

Imagine the possibilities this project/product opens up - Smart home, smart appliances... You can turn almost everything into "smart" devices, with just $25.

The spec is good enough for small application to run off.

700 MHz ARM processor.256MB RAM. That's even better than some of the smartphones out there!
Can see that this would be a hot cake for a lot of developers out there!

Google Plus Android APK

UPDATE 28th July - The official app is available in most countries already. So download from Android market instead.


The official Google+ Android is only available in certain regions. https://market.android.com/details?id=com.google.android.apps.plus&hl=en

But, fear not, XDA member sacredsoul, has got his hand on the unofficial Google Plus APK for international Android users.

I've tried it on my Galaxy S i9000, and it works perfectly fine.

Get yours from XDA forum http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1148305



[Virtuemart] Refused to set unsafe header "Connection"

While I was working on a Joomla 1.5.18, Virtuemart 1.1.4 website, I encounter this problem of "not able to add to cart" problem with Virtuemart.

When "Inspect Element" in Chrome, I got the following error
Refused to set unsafe header "Connection"
XMLHttpRequest cannot load http://www.example.com/index.php. Origin http://example.com is not allowed by Access-Control-Allow-Origin.
Apparently, after debugging for a while, I found out that for Ajax calls, example.com and www.example.com are considered different domain, thus the considered as unsafe "Connection"

Solution

The solution for this is pretty straight forward - make sure you are at the correct domain. To do this, create/add the following code in the .htaccess file in your public_html directory.
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{http_host} ^example.com$ [nc]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.example.com/$1 [r=301,nc] Note: Replace example.com with your domain.

That is by far the easiest way to solve th…

[Virtuemart] Error: $("vmlp_search_str").addEvent is not a function

Got this error while working on a Joomla 1.5.18, Virtuemart 1.1.4 website.

Error: $("vmlp_search_str").addEvent is not a function
Source File: http://www.tracyeinny.com.sg/staging2/modules/mod_vm_live_product/js/vmliveproduct.js
Line: 110
After debugging for a while. I found out that apparently there are conflicts between jQuery and Mootools (or other scripts).

To solve this, just need to add in the following scripts after jQuery import.
<script type="text/javascript">jQuery.noConflict();</script>
Hope that helps those who new to HTML, Javascript.
