Where does Android store the "default application for file type (open with)" settings?
Thursday 06th of December 2012
Where does Android store the default application settings that connects each type of content with a designated application?I mean which application open each kind of file or content type so if I got two PDF readers and I downloaded a PDF file android will use one of them without letting the user an option to choose.I know I can clear the default settings of an application but it's not what I'm looking for.I want to find the table/database/file that android uses for this.Is it in a sqlite database file? Where is it stored ?

Bug in iOS Fails to Recognize Daylight Savings in Europe, Android Users Chuckle – Droid Life
Monday 01st of November 2010
We couldn’t help but mention this story. According to THOUSANDS of reports across Europe today, there appears to be a major bug in iOS that can’t understand Daylight Savings time and left thousands of i*hone owners an hour late to work today if they were using the stock alarm app. And to make matters worse, U.S. owners are reporting that their phones were waking them up an hour earlier than normal when we all know that our day doesn’t come until the 7th.Of course, no Android related alarm clock delays have been announced.Oh and this tweet in preparation for Steve J*bs’ response is perfect…@diveintomark: THE IPHONE ALARM CLOCK IS FINE. YOU’RE JUST SLEEPING WRONG.And back to your regularly scheduled programming.Via: CNNCheers Mathees!

Why does Android offer updates for all the gmail accounts on the phone?
Tuesday 13th of March 2012
I have multiple gmail accounts on my phone and I get Market and other updates listed for each of these accounts. That is simply annoying.How can I disable that and instead set one account as my primary account for updates and such like?

Does android allow purchase of an app once per family, like iPhone?
Monday 04th of October 2010
With an iPhone, if your family shares the same computer/itunes account, you share access to all of the same mp3's, videos, and apps you've bought from itunes. Obviously I could put the same mp3's on my phone and my wife's manually, but what about apps? Is it possible to buy the app once for a family, or does android require paying for each person seperately?

networking - Does Android have support for IPv6?
Thursday 16th of December 2010
I wonder if Android has support for IPv6? I have heard that the phone company I use has support for IPv6 and I have a IPv6 address if I visit http://ipv6.whatismyipv6.net.ipv4.sixxs.org/.But I can not visit IPv6-only sites like http://ipv6.google.com, why is that? Does Android have support for IPv6?

Problems with Daylight Savings Time
Sunday 07th of November 2010
I live in the central time zone. This morning I woke up and my phone decided to adjust for daylight savings time by 2 hours instead of 1. I checked the time and date settings to find that the date settings were checked to "automatic". Somehow the phone decided I was in the Mountain time zone instead of central. Any idea why/how that would happen? If I uncheck the automatic, and manually change my time zone it works fine.

Sunday 13th of March 2011
I don't know if anyone else had this problem but =I went to bed last night with th e full faith that my android would automatically update for daylight savings time however it did not so I waas pretty late for work today wich isn't all th at bad except for the fact tha_ I. Braged about my android and the fact that it s ould automaticvally update to spring forward an hour tonight wh ile I'm asleep but ofcourse that did not happen but guess what phone did update. My buddies iphone did the update np so guess its back to the drawing board for our devs I just caznt belive that they would over look something like this it doesn't speak very highly of them mayby they can get it right for fall when we go back an hour and next time I will not relly on them instead I will set the allarm for my own personal adjustment. Just saying ty to th e devs for making me late to work and the laughing stock of the iphone crew.
