Poor Camera Application on Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 & M2

Android - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 19:31

Eventough, the hardware is good the below average camera application is making the smartphone camera experience miserable.

Asus have pushed a lot of updates for camera improvements but no changes were seen. It doesnt even have a manual mode. Just like that many features are missing.

Releasing a pixel master camera (Asus official camera app) application instead of the current camera app would be a good move and it will definetely improve the camera experience.

This Computer Mouse Houses A Mouse Computer

Hack a Day - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 19:00

Everyone has heard of a computer mouse before, but what about a mouse computer?

Granted, [Electronic Grenade]’s all-in-one computer in an oversized mouse-shaped case is almost without practical value. But that’s hardly the point, which was just to do something cool. Inspiration came from keyboards stuffed with a Raspberry Pi to make a mostly-all-in-one machine; this Rodent of Unusual Size is the next logical step. With a Pi Zero W and a LiPo battery alongside a mouse mechanism inside the 3D-printed case – alas, no real mouse currently on the market would house everything – the computer sports not only a tiny and nearly-usable LCD display, but also a slide-out Bluetooth keyboard. The ergonomics of a keyboard at right angles to the display gives us pause, but again, usability is not the point. And don’t expect much in the performance department – the rig barfs after a few seconds of playing Minecraft.

Still, for all its limitations, this mouse computer has a certain charm. We always enjoy “just because I can” projects, whether they be a Gameboy ukelele or a fire-breathing animatronic duck. Such projects are often valuable not for what they produce, but for pushing into areas where no one has gone before.

Stop Task from being executed repeatedly

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 18:40

Hey guys,

I'm very new to tasker and this is my first post in this sub, so I'm sorry if this is against the rules.

I have a profile setup that activates when my Sleep alarm goes off which sends a notification to my phone. If I hit snooze and the alarm goes off again it sends the notification again. I basically want the task to be able to only run once every X hours. Is there a way I can accomplish that?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Navigation bar edit is stuck

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 17:37

I tried to make a task using the navigation bar button edits, and now I lost my main navigation buttons.

I tried to restart my device, but the edit (putting clipboard as middle button) persists.

How can I reset my nav bar to the original way?

'The Server Side Public License v1 does not meet standards'

MongoDB justified its decision last October to shift the free version of its NoSQL database software, MongoDB Community Server, from the open-source GNU Affero General Public License to the not-quite-so-open Server Side Public License (SSPL) by arguing that cloud providers sell open-source software as a service without giving back.…
