Nokia Lumia 2520

We have exciting news this week from Nokia World in Abu Dhabi!

The Nokia Lumia family has just gotten big with the Nokia Lumia 2520 — our first Windows RT tablet — and our first large-screen phones, the Nokia Lumia 1520 with 1080p resolution, and Nokia Lumia 1320. They come with the latest release of Nokia Lumia software.

They have also announced new Asha phones, platform features, tools, and resources.

Here it is:

 

LUMIA:
The big screens are here the Lumia family of devices has grown in both numbers and size. They’ve introduced the Lumia 2520, our first Windows 8.1 RT tablet, as well as our first two devices with 6-inch displays: the Nokia Lumia 1520 with 1080p resolution, and the Nokia Lumia 1320 with 720p resolution.  

The Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet features a vivid 10.1-inch HD display, both 4G LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity, 6.7-megapixel camera, and much more. Check out the Nokia Lumia 2520’s technical specifications.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 features the Windows Phone 8 operating system, 6-inch screen, 2.2 GHz quad-core processor, 20-megapixel PureView camera, and much more.
 

 

The Nokia Lumia 1320 also features the Windows Phone 8 OS, as well as a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, 6-inch ClearBlack display, and much more. 

New Lumia software with 1080p support
The latest Windows Phone 8 update, delivered to Nokia Lumia devices via the Lumia Black software, brings a host of new features to users and a new screen resolution for your apps to exploit. The big news for your apps is support for larger 6-inch screens with 720p and 1080p resolution — you now have a bigger space for your apps. 

Lumia code sample for dynamic layout
To help you speed development on our new Lumia devices, we’re publishing the Dynamic Layout Sample. This example app demonstrates how to implement dynamic layouts using styles.

Also, the Nokia Lumia Developer’s Library has been updated. Included is guidance for optimising your apps for the new Lumia large-display devices. Visit the updated Lumia Developer’s Library.

Lumia App Labs: get ready for the big screen
Make sure your apps are ready for 720p and 1080p, and build in high-DPI assets.

anonymous email

Welcome to Hackerdevil’s guide on how to send ANONYMOUS e-mails to someone without a prog.

I am Hackerdevil and i am going to explain ya a way to send home-made e-mails. I mean its a way to send Annonimous e-mails without a program, it doesn’t take
to much time and its cool and you can have more knowledge than with a stupid program that does all by itself.

This way (to hackers) is old what as you are newby to this stuff, perhaps you may like to know how these anonymailers work, (home-made)

Well…..
Go to Start, then Run…
You have to Telnet (Xserver) on port 25

Well, (In this Xserver) you have to put the name of a server without the ( ) of course…
Put in iname.com in (Xserver) because it always work it is a server with many bugs in it.
(25) mail port.

So now we are like this.

telnet iname.com 25

and then you hit enter
Then When you have telnet open put the following like it is written

helo

and the machine will reply with smth.

Notice for newbies: If you do not see what you are writing go to Terminal’s menu (in telnet) then to Preferences and in the Terminal Options you tick all opctions available and in the emulation menu that’s the following one you have to tick the second option.
Now you will se what you are writing.

then you put:

mail from: and so on…
If you make an error start all over again

Example:
mail from:

You hit enter and then you put:

rcpt to:
This one has to be an existance address as you are mailing anonymously to him.

Then you hit enter
And you type
Data
and hit enter once more

Then you write

Subject:whetever

And you hit enter

you write your mail

hit enter again (boring)

you put a simple:
.

Yes you don’t see it its the little fucking point!
and hit enter
Finally you write
quit
hit enter one more time
and it’s done

look:Try first do it with yourself I mean mail annonymously yourself so you can test it!
Don’t be asshole and write fucking e-mails to big corps. bec’ its symbol of stupidity and childhood and it has very very effect on Hackers they will treat you as a Lamer!

Really i don’t know why i wrote this fucking disclaimer, but i don’t want to feel guilty if you get into trouble….

Disclamer:Hackerdevil is not responsable for whetever you do with this info. you can destribute this but you are totally forbidden to take out the “By Hackerdevil” line. You can’t modify or customize this text and i am also not responsable if you send an e-mail to an important guy and insult him, and i rectly advise you that this is for educational porpouses only my idea is for learning and having more knowledge, you can not get busted with this stuff but i don’t take care if it anyway happen to you. If this method is new for ya probably you aren’t a hacker so think that if someone wrote you an e-mail “yourbestfirend@aol.com” insulting you and it wasn’t him it but was some guy using a program or this info you won’t like it.so Use this method if you don’t care a a damn hell or if you like that someone insult you.

setting up a wireless network without Router

Let’s say you have one internet connection at home that you want to share across all your desktop and laptop computers, your Wi-Fi enabled mobile phones, tablets, video game consoles (like the Xbox), digital photo frames and any other wireless devices that you may have at home.

How do you do this?

The easiest way to setup a wireless network, as we all know, is with the help of a router – just attach a wireless router to your modem and any Wi-Fi enabled gear, that’s located inside the signal range of your router, will be able to connect to the web using that lone Internet connection.

Setup Wireless Network without a Wireless Router
Now consider a slightly different scenario – you have all these Wi-Fi enabled devices at home but there’s no router. Well, there’s no reason to buy one because you can still easily setup a wireless network as long as your computers have a wireless network adapter*.

[*] Most new desktops and laptop computers are already equipped with internal network adapters so you are ready to go without a router.
If your computer doesn’t have built-in wireless capabilities, you can either buy a USB network adapter that plugs into the USB port of your desktop or go for a wireless adapter that directly plugs into your notebook’s PC Card slot. Desktop users can also opt for an internal wireless PCI card but you’ll have to open the computer case in order to install this network adapter.
Create a Wi-Fi Network without a Router
Now that you have everything in place to create a Wi-Fi network, let’s actually build one.

For Windows XP and Vista users

If your main computer, that is already connected to the internet, is running Windows XP, Vista or even Mac OS X, you can set up an ad-hoc Wi-Fi network and the other wireless devices can then connect to the web via this ad-hoc network (also called a computer-to-computer network).

Wired Connection In, Wireless Connection Out

It’s an easy process. To set up an ad-hoc network in Windows Vista, go to Network and Sharing Center from the control panel, select “Set up a connection or network” and choose “Set up a wireless ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network”.

Make sure you select “Save this network” option else the ad hoc network will be removed if no other computers / devices are connecting to the network.

Turn on Internet Sharing in the next screen and now your other home computers can connect to the ad hoc network just like they would connect to any regular wireless network. Setting up an ad hoc network in XP takes a couple of extra steps but also make sure the host computer is running at least XP SP2 or SP3.

For Windows 7 users

If you are on Windows 7, you can instantly turn your  computer into a personal Wi-Fi hotspot without having to configure anything. All you need is a free software called Virtual Router and the computer connected to the internet must be running Windows 7.

[*] Virtual Router works will all editions of Windows 7 except the Starter edition because Microsoft has disabled the Virtual Wifi feature in that particular edition.

Using the virtual router is simple – just run the program on any Windows 7 computer, assign a password and that’s it. In the above example, I used the Virtual Router to connect an iPod, an Ubuntu Linux laptop and a Windows desktop to the Internet via a Windows 7 notebook where that virtual router software was running.

As new devices join the Wireless network, their assigned IP and MAC addresses instantly appear in the Virtual Router window. And you can click the “Stop Router” button anytime to deactivate the hotspot and disable Internet sharing.

Virtual Wi-Fi vs Ad Hoc Wireless Networking
To set up Ad Hoc networking, your main computer needs to have an Ethernet based Internet connection as well as a Wireless (WLAN) network adapter. In the case of Virtual Wi-Fi, the Ethernet card is optional so you can turn a laptop into a hotspot even if your laptop itself is connected to a Wireless network and not to an Ethernet cable.

Computers and other wireless devices in ad hoc networks must be within 30 feet of each other but there’s no such restriction in the case of Virtual Wireless networks.

Ad-Hoc wireless networking is available on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 while Virtual WiFi, which is much easier to setup, is available on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008.

Related: How to Secure your Wireless Network

[*] Intel’s Centrino 2 processors include a technology called My Wifi that can also turn your wirelessly connected laptop into a personal Wi-Fi hotspot but the interesting part is that this supports Windows Vista as well in addition to Windows 7.
