Disable NFC in Android

NFC (Near Field Communications) is a relatively newer technology that allows one Android device to connect and exchange data with another device close to it. For the data exchange to occur, both of the devices must have NFC enabled and their NFC transceivers should be in very close vicinity. Typically, you have to put the screen of one device on that of another for the NFC to work.

Remote content in Mozilla Thunderbird

It uses many measures to protect you from spam and malicious email messages. For example, it disables displaying of the remote content by default so that email messages cannot open an external link. This prevents you from being the victim of drive-by-download malware infections (as soon as you open the message, malware is downloaded and you get infected). Continue reading

Some of the Android smart phones running on Mediatek SoC (system on a chip) like MTK6582 or MTK6589 display an extra WiFi connection entry labeled “NVRAM WARNING: Err=0x10″.

As soon as the news that the Firefox version 36.0 has been released came out on various web sites, I checked for the latest version on my Android smart phone.

This could happen perhaps because Mozilla did not quickly update their browser on the Playstore or there was some delay in the distribution. In any case, I did not want to wait for another day to update the Firefox for Android Continue reading
