Samsung Galaxy S gets Android 2.2.1 (I9000XWJS3) through Kies – build date 11 January 2011

I can confirm myself, this version of firmware brings with it not only general bug fixes to Froyo, but it seems to make the device move much faster without any lag fixes – I guess it just doesn’t need any.

A few details about this firmware…

Firmware: I9000XWJS3
Firmware build date: 11 January 2011
Swype version: 2.6.47
Swype languages: UK/US English, Deutsch, Francais, Nederlands, Svenska, Dansk, Suomi, Norsk, Hrvatski, Romana, Srpski, Slovenscina and 2 more.
Quadrant score: 1216

Ok, let’s see a few improvements:

- doesn’t need lag-fixes
- no wireless issue
- no gps issue
- 26 apps thought Samsung apps
- no battery bug
- there are more, I’m sure, but this is what I noticed

If you want to update your firmware to this version you need to:

- install the latest version of KIES, or update it.
- remove all lag-fixes from your phone
- backup your phone contacts and calendar
- use Kies Registry Patcher to spoof your phone product code as: NEE
- update your phone through KIES
- factory reset your phone
- restore lost data, contacts and calendar

You can get the latest version of Samsung Kies from: here.

Note: this update is available only if your phone product code is NEE (Dutch CSC). Otherwise, you can update only if you spoof your product code to NEE using for example Kies Registry Patcher v.1.7 – however, this will void your warranty and can brick your device (actually, the update procedure itself can do it), so use the spoofing metod on your own risk.

Ten Hot Tips for Utilizing Facebook and Twitter to Boost Company Images on the Web in Business

In an interview taken by Business Review Australia Nicole Smith of Blue Fish Social Media offers ten tips on how to make the most of the cheapest, fastest and most effective advertising available—social media.

While concentrating on Facebook and Twitter, Smith says it’s imperative to be authentic when sharing with your audience. “Make sure you share information in a way that shows you’re a human. Humor is a wonderful tool here! People want to get to know you, so a layered approach of business and personal content is good,” she says in the article.

As an experienced director of a marketing group, Smith believes that the convergence of social media has become the norm and will continue to be so. “Make life easy for yourself—link everything!

Create a desktop icon that can trigger a quick Windows 7 Shutdown

If you have many programs running, there’s a chance that you’ll see a nice looking screen shown after you’ve chosen to restart or shutdown your computer. This screen lists the programs that are still open, and they fall off the list as they are being closed by Windows.

Well, sometimes if an application doesn’t close and holds up the process, a dialog box will be displayed where you choose to force or cancel the shutdown. Well, this is great when you forget to save something that you were working at (e.g. a document in MS Word) but it can be also very annoying when you want to shutdown the computer in a hurry and the computer lingers on.

Ok, there is a nice trick to force the computer to shutdown without having to press the “Force shut down” button when it’s displayed. We will create a desktop icon that will perform a Windows 7 Shutdown with the “-f” parameter which means force shutdown.

Right-click any unused area of your desktop > New > Shortcut > type (or copy and paste) the next line:

shutdown.exe -s -t 00 -f

Click Next > type a name for the shortcut > Finish.

From now on, when you want to shut down your computer without any further intervention, simply use this shortcut. You can actually use it always, just make sure you save what you’re working on before you hit the shortcut.

Prevent Windows Update from forcibly rebooting your Computer

Ok, we’ve all met the annoying pop-up dialog of Windows Update telling us to reboot the computer. When? Well, you guessed, when we are most busy, of course!

At the beginning, you can easily close the reminder but after some time he gets tired of reminding us and says that the computer will reboot in a couple of minutes! Well, personally, I prefer to temporarily disable the obnoxious reminder and restart when I’m ready to do so, not forced by the OS!

How we do that? Simple open the Command Prompt (if you have Windows XP: Start > Run > cmd ; if you have Windows Seven or Vista: type ‘cmd’ in your Start > ‘Search programs and files’). Then, type the following command: sc stop wuauserv

This will temporarily disable Windows updates and you can restart the computer when you’re ready to do so. After the restart, you’ll keep getting Windows updates as you did before entering the command so, no worries.

Manage your disk space with style; free up disk space by quickly finding and deleting large, useless files

These days, hard drives offer more storage space for lower prices than ever before. However, I’ve found on my own that no matter how large is your hard drive, sooner or later you’ll fill it up with something. I’m quite sure that you know what I’m talking about and you have seen already the annoying low disk space warning (and the consequences) on your own. At that point, you might want to analyze your hard drive and find the files and folders that are taking the most space, but in case you have hundreds of folders with thousands of files – you’re in trouble.

Considering it’s impossible to use Windows to determine which folders use the most space (or at list, not the easy way), I’d like to recommend you to use Disk Space Fan. This gorgeous application can display the amount of space taken by each folder and the files contained within.

You can find out more by reading the full review of Disk Space Fan or downloading Disk Space Fan.
