Sony Ericsson Says Goodbye to Sync Service, Suggests Google Sync as Alternative

This image has no alt text

As smartphone technology advances rapidly, many tools that worked well at one point have simply fallen to the wayside. Sony Ericsson’s Sync service is one such utility that seemed like a good idea when first launched, but has quickly fallen out of favor as better services have come along. With that in mind, SE has announced that it will shut down Sync as of December 29th, recommending instead that users transition to Google Sync. Also mentioned as possibly alternatives are Plaxo and UNYK. Sony Ericsson has some instructions on transitioning from one service to another over at their website, which should be a rather painless process. Any Sync users out there sad to see Sony Ericsson pull the plug?

Root now available for the T-Mobile Galaxy S II

T-Mobile Galaxy S II root

The T-Mobile Galaxy S II has been rooted, thanks to Samsung releasing the kernel source.  Like most Samsung Android phones (and tablets) there's no trickery involved, you simply flash the new recovery with ODIN and you're able to flash unsigned update packages, like the one that contains the files needed for root.  The process is pretty easy, thanks to no locked bootloaders or rolling back to engineering builds, and we like easy.

You'll need working Windows drivers, and ODIN 1.8.4 or higher, but all the root packages and files are available at the source link, as well as easy instructions to get you on your way.  Goodbye T-Mobile Mall, and hello Root Explorer!  We're sure plenty of hacks will soon follow — T-Mobile and Android hacking go hand-in-hand.

Source: Rootzwiki. Thanks, Mario!

Dell Streak 5 is gone for good

Last month we reported that the Dell Streak was pulled, but the information we got was that it might be getting some sort of update and it would be back this month. It appears it might be gone for good. On the website it says, “Streak 5 is not longer available.” Then you see the above image of a woman in a car with the following text: “Goodbye, Streak 5. It’s been a good ride.”

Hopefully the Dell Streak 7 and the Dell Streak 10 Pro will make it to the U.S. for all you Dell fanatics out there.

Google Voice Adds Spam Filter – Say Goodbye To Unwanted Callers

This image has no alt text

Google has been quite the busy little bee lately. Today we’ve seen updates for Google Shopper, Android Market and now — Google Voice gets some new added features. GV has begun rolling out a new spam filter not unlike the one found in your Gmail. Now, you can say goodbye to annoying telemarketers, and bitter ex-girlfriends by having their calls sent directly into your Spam filter. The process is completely automatic and can be enabled on the Calls tab of Google Voice settings by checking the box next to Global SPAM filtering. Easy peasy. Oh – and the service works with texts messages too!

Google wants to remind you that this has all been made possible thanks in part to the thousands of Google Voice users who are actively marking pesky numbers as spam everyday. So, remember to do your part by marking unwanted calls as spam and correcting mis-labled spam. Sorry, Cindy. I know you’re bitter about the breakup but you’ve just been Google SPAMERIZED!
