Nifty Fix to Allow Hulu Content, Right onto your Android Phone!

Hulu has been the most demanding and most content filled online video provider for a very long time in the United States. Other than not being available outside the US, the video giant does not support any mobile devices accessing the website. But the Android platform did not stop there. It found a way to dupe the video giant into allowing the content to be streamed through. Hulu, the popular online video service provider, has not yet been customized in order to provide content onto Android based platforms. But now that Android supports Flash 10.1, people have been trying their best to level with the video provider and get video on their phones.
Even though Hulu has not made a customized website for the Android devices, there’s a new nifty trick that’s been floating around on the internet to make that thing work! All that’s required to be done is that the Android phone should be able to make the Hulu website believe that it’s an indeed a desktop computer and NOT a mobile device. How to do so? Well, read on!

According to a popular Android dedicated website, Absolutely Android, the trick is pretty simple. All you have to do is get the Android application to run in such a way that the Hulu website gets tricked into thinking that the Android phone that is trying to access the website is actually a desktop computer instead of a mobile device. Here’re the following steps in order to get the Hulu website working on the phone.

1.    Make sure the Adobe Flash 10.l is installed on your Android phone
2.    Fire up the web browser on your Android phone and in the address bar, go ahead and type: “about:debug” and click on Go.
3.    A new page would open and go to the Settings section. Scroll down the page and look for the “UAString”. Select it and then change the settings to “Desktop” and click on save and close the page.
4.    Go ahead and browse to the Hulu website and there you are, Hulu in all it’s glory, working on your Android phone!

This exciting trick has been tested on the Google Nexus One phone and has worked absolutely fine. Even though the website works on the Android phone, it’s quite restricted, since the desktop version of the Hulu website doesn’t quite go well on the Android screen. Also, it’s quite obvious that Hulu will soon enough get rid of this trick and disallow the users from accessing the site in that way. So, till then, use it as much as you can!!

Android users can finally give out shrieks of joy. Not because the Android phone is great, but because it just got BETTER. Adobe Flash has finally arrived on the Android platform. Here’s a snub to the iPhone right in its face. Adobe has finally released Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for the Android platform and things have never looked better before.

The release of the Flash player for the Android platform can be the result of the tensions escalating between Adobe and Apple. Since Apple has straight away declined the usage of the Flash in its devices and gadgets, due to the claim of it being high resource hog and not secure enough. The release of the Adobe Flash Player for Android coincides with the Google’s release of the Android’s 2.2 (FroYo) at the Google I/O Conference in San Francisco.

The Flash Player version 10.1 was completely overhauled and redesigned from scratch for the Android platform specifically. The player was designed such that it would support various mobile device inputs and at the same time optimize performance and overall battery throughput. Just to prove Apple’s allegations of Flash not being able to support multi-touch gestures and the fancy stuff that Apple likes to implement in it’s devices, Adobe seems to have gone the extra mile to make sure that the Flash player for the Android platform supports Multi-touch, various gestures, Smart Zooming, Accelerometer Inputs, and much more that basically differentiates the smart phone from the desktops.

Adobe Flash 10.1 seems to be quite serious regarding its performance. It has incorporated hardware acceleration with H.264 video decoding, Sleep Mode (which slows down the Flash Player, incase the Android phone goes into Screensaver Mode) and also an Advanced Memory Management system, which decreases RAM usage by an astounding 50%! Adobe claims that the player works with all the major chip and mobile platform players, which includes Intel, Qualcomm, Nvidia, ARM and AMD).

There is a single flaw in the player at the moment. The player is supported on the Android OS 2.2 and above only. Which makes the older model Android phones won’t be supporting the Flash player anytime soon. Adobe Flash player’s performance cannot be quite understated as yet, simply because the release of the Flash Player 10.1 for the Android platform has created a major significance over the last few months only because of the basic reason of Apple’s ban of the Flash Player over the iPhone and the iPad devices. Apple wanted to bar any kind of relationship with Adobe. Many say that Apple may be working on an alternative to Adobe’s Flash Player, which would be its own proprietary software, forcing all the users to use their development kits to build applications for the iPhone or iTouch or even the iPad.

Due to the Apple’s decision to stay away from Flash, it has created huge rifts over the developers, whether they should completely leave Flash in place of HTML5. Only time will tell what comes out at the end.

Here’s a video showing the Working of the Adobe Flash Player for the Android Platform:

Mobile technology is advancing at a rate so rapid that the demand for such products and services is growing exponentially. Especially with the release of the phenomenal Apple iPhone, the market for new and improved features and applications is more competitive than ever before. The iPhone, along with other smart phones, is not only revolutionizing the way people communicate, but it also created a significant transformation in the way we do business, seek entertainment, fulfill daily tasks, and use the Internet. All these things and more have never been more accessible and convenient before the release of Google’s Android; and all kinds of new jobs are emerging in order to accommodate this incredible new development.

Google’s Android is a mobile platform that is fast becoming Apple’s biggest competitor. In fact, the Android’s popularity is growing so fast that a whole new industry of application developers is forming. First off, freelancers far and wide are already capitalizing greatly on the needs of small businesses. Mobile web applications are fast becoming one of the most useful tools for all kinds of business owners, creating a whole new list of needs that freelancing programmers and developers can serve at a much more affordable rate than hiring a full time programmer.

Modern technology phone hardware developers also benefit greatly by the release of the Android because a very powerful phone is required in order to operate the highly advanced software. There are already many new handsets featuring Android and more are being developed and improved every day. As Google’s Android itself matures and improves, new and better hardware will be required to support it. In addition to this, mobile phone manufacturers will need to continuously upgrade their products to be compatible with Android’s applications.

The market for Android technology is not restricted to the mobile industry. For example, a new market of tablet devices much like Apple’s new iPad has emerged due to Android’s extremely adaptable operating system. The main intention behind the tablet’s technology is to improve the way people access information in a variety of situations, which requires a whole new industry of developers and programmers.

As you can see, the job market created by Google’s Android is vast and highly promising. The peaking mobile market combined with the deliberate versatility of the Android platform, the opportunities available for all kinds of professionals involved in mobile communications is endless.

As with its predecessors, the Samsung Galaxy Beam is also not all about looks. It definitely has the features to back it up. All the data connectivity options you need is on the device including 3G HSDPA and Wi-Fi. The multimedia features of the Galaxy Beam are also quite commendable – perhaps none more than its amazing 8-Megapixel camera. This camera definitely outclasses the iPhone’s 3-Megapixel snapper any day of the week. You can get hold of the new Beam by comparing phone deals from online retailers.

Aside from the usual features such as an LED flash, autofocus, and geo-tagging, it even packs in face, smile, and blink detection as well. You wouldn’t have to worry about storing your precious photos as this Smartphone holds an internal memory of 16GB which you can triple by using an external microSD memory card. There are lots of great Galaxy Beam contracts online and they are often much better than deals from your high street store.

The Galaxy Beam’s OS of choice is the Google Android mobile operating system (version 2.1 or Eclair). This OS has been deemed by many as the top performer in the industry today and we wouldn’t contest this claim. The Beam’s 720 MHz processor should be able to handle the hardware requirements of the famed OS.

The Samsung Galaxy Beam doesn’t come for cheap. You’ll have to cough up a considerable amount of money to get your hands on this bad boy but once you do, you’d realize in an instant that it was money well spent. All the amazing features of the Galaxy Beam will definitely make you feel that what you spent was all worth it.

If anything, you might even think it was a steal. The device possesses an excellent combination of style and substance which will undoubtedly satisfy any consumer’s Smartphone needs.

Android Inc. first developed the Android mobile platform now known as Google Android. It is based on the Linux Kernel operating system and enables web application developers to use their own Java codes to configure, customize, and fully control the mobile operating system.

The Google Android platform went through several phases before finally coming out with the Android OS-Donut, which included debuggers, libraries, tutorials, voice search, and applications, to name only a few features. It is the now the most advanced mobile platform on the market for many reasons, one being that it combines all of the latest mobile devices such as cell phones, portable televisions, digital cameras, handheld PCs, and GPS systems into one state of the art smart phone.

The main reason for the extreme success and versatility of the Android OS is because the program allows third party developers to create customized applications and widgets, which is not only beneficial for developers but for smart phone manufacturers as well. Several different manufacturers have been able to configure the Android OS to work with their products, including LG, HTC, Motorola, and Dell, with more and more different companies developing new, compatible smart phones every day.

Phones that run Google Android operate much like a computer desktop by allowing users to run multiple applications at once. For instance, one can browse the Internet while playing music or send an instant message in the middle of a telephone conversation. The possible combinations are endless and will completely revolutionize the way people use their cell phones forever.

The fact is that there are already thousands of applications created by both Google and by independent developers available on the market. They range vastly in terms of themes and purposes and serve an endless list of needs. These kinds of options combined with the ability to multitask between programs are two reasons why smart phones running alternate mobile platforms couldn’t begin to compete with the capabilities of Google’s Android.

The sales figures speak for themselves: Google Android is winning over mobile users around the world and is continuing to gain momentum. The most current version of the operating system is still being developed to further meet the needs of every mobile user, regardless of their age, disposition, or expectations.
