I have released a new open source library to wrap a Google Play services API called SafetyNet, which has been completely eclipsed by the recent Google IO and WWDC coverage 😉 safetynet_framed

Here’s a blog post that explains a bit about what is it and why and here’s the code on github.

I’ve also released the Sample app on the Google Play store so you can run the Safety Net test on your own device.

 

I love new smart bar search in firefox 3 but bugged by the fact it defaults to searching google.com, so here’s what I did to make it use google.co.uk

  1. In firefox3 URL/Smart bar type: “about:config” [this brings up the adv config of firefox, don’t cha know, click ok to void warrenty 😉 ]
  2. Use the filter to find the property called “keyword.URL”, and change the google domain suffix from .com to co.uk, hey presto!

    keyword.URL=http://www.google.co.uk/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=

all done!
