Why doesn't Adobe Flash work in Internet Explorer in kuwait

The Adobe Flash add-on might not work in Windows Internet Explorer if you're using the 64-bit edition of Internet Explorer or have disabled the add-on. ActiveX Filtering in Internet Explorer 9 can also prevent the add-on from working. Here are some things to try: Use the 32-bit edition of Internet Explorer. If you have installed either Internet Explorer 8 or Internet Explorer 9, both a 32-bit and a 64-bit edition of the browser are available on your computer. To see which edition of Internet Explorer you're using Open Internet Explorer, and then do one of the following: In Internet Explorer 8, click the Help menu, and then click About Internet Explorer. In Internet Explorer 9, click the Tools button , and then click About Internet Explorer. If you're using the 64-bit edition of Internet Explorer, 64-bit Edition will appear to the right of the version number. If you're using the 32-bit edition, nothing will appear to the right of the version number. Enable the add-on in the Manage Add-on dialog box. In Internet Explorer 9, turn off ActiveX Filtering.

Android For Tablets 2.2 Froyo Or 3.0 Gingerbread on kuwait

Android 2.2 (Froyo) which is the latest version of Android OS for handheld devices from Google available in the Kuwait. Android is believed to be beating the iPhone OS and Android is very much successful and we see lots of handheld device manufactures are using this. Samsung Galaxy Tablet is powered with Android 2.2 which is the latest version available in the market. Now the question is “Is this version fine for Tablet as well or is it well tweaked for the best performance for a tablet”. Other question that comes in my mind is like in iPad, we have applications which are developed for iPad, will the Android apps developed for mobile phones work well with tablets. Android 3.0 (Gingerbread) has a higher hardware basic requirements like atleast 1-GHz processor, 512MB of RAM memory, and displays no smaller than 3.5 inches and higher resolutions of up to 1280Will the tablets which are recently out in the market like the Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000, Dell Streak, Notion Ink Adam, ICD Ultra, Acer Tablet and many more coming up be able to run on the upcoming Android 3.0. Interesting thing is that there are rumors that Android 3.0 will be out by mid of October according to PC World. If its true that Android 3.0 is coming up soon then I feel that the recently launched Tablets powered by Android 2.2 should have waited for the release of Android 3.0 and have their hardwares loaded with the best to run this version. Honeycomb would be the next version after Gingerbread (Android 3.5). by 760 pixels would also be available for devices with displays larger than 4 inches.

VoIP on iPad in Kuwait

Yes, it's true - you can do VoIP on the new Apple iPad. The iPad sports WiFi, 3G, speaker, and a microphone - all you need to do VoIP. But the real kicker is that Apple just modified their iPhone (News - Alert)/iPad SDK to ALLOW VoIP over 3G. Yes, my friends, now you too can hold a massive 9.7" screen to your head - bulkiness and radiation be damned! The pertinent part of the SDK is as follows: 3.3. 23 Because some mobile network operators may prohibit or restrict the use of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) functionality over their network, such as the use of VoIP telephony over a cellular network, and may also impose additional fees, or other charges in connection with VoIP, You agree to inform end-users, prior to purchase, to check the terms of agreement with their operator, for example, by providing such notice in the marketing text that You provide accompanying Your Application on the App Store. 9. Third Party Terms of Agreement: You must state in the EULA that the end-user must comply with applicable third party terms of agreement when using Your Application, e.g., if You have a VoIP application, then the end-user must not be in violation of their wireless data service agreement when using Your Application. So Apple (News - Alert) is basically saying to developers "feel free to create VoIP over 3G apps, just make sure you state in the EULA that the end user must not violate any third party agreement, i.e. a carrier saying you can't do VoIP over 3G". But most users ignore EULAs anyway, so even if the carriers "ask you not to do VoIP over 3G" the carriers would be hard pressed to punish their users for using VoIP over 3G. Why? Because at least in the U.S. the FCC would be all over them. Holding the iPad to your ear for phone calls will be mighty tough unless you use your Bluetooth headset. I'm hoping they put better echo cancellation and larger speakers so you can just use speakerphone mode. I grade the iPhone's speakerphone mode a solid B- which is not good enough. I'm also still waiting for Skype to release an 'official' version that supports VoIP over 3G. Granted my jailbroken iPhone supports Skype (News - Alert) over 3G in Kuwait.
