Themes on API's 11 + : As an experiment I have tried switching a small app which was built against the the appcompat v7 libs to target API's 11 + so the appcompat lib is not needed. Obviously the packages and ActionBar handling change a little but the big problem I am finding is trying to reference the Theme.Holo (or any other) actionbar predefined themes which I am trying to use as parents for my themes.

Am I missing something or does this just not work?

Got it: I was missing the @android:style/ in the parent defn. I don't think this was present in the sample code I copied.

Thanks for your help

I'm experimenting with writing an app just for API's 11 - 19 as this should not require the appcompat lib and can use the direct references to the ActionBar etc. This works fine unless I try to add a theme style - I can't find a predefined theme, such as Holo, to parent my theme from. Are these predefined themes provided by the lib?

Can anyone throw any light on this?

Another cut of 4.0.4 delivered on the Samsung 7.7 overnite - supposedly 'stability' fixes

Nope, not really looked as it seems a bit too specific

Anyone any idea why the swiftksey keyboard doesnt provide predictions, and hence spelling corrections, on G+ entry?

Interesting little one isn't it - al least it works when you turn it round.

Yeeha! Just got the ICS update on my tablet. UI is much slicker.

Did some strange stuff with the battery consumption. 1st day it chewed through it and got v hot. Also hot when charging. Shut it down for a few mins last night & charged overnight. Now seems to have calmed down. Seen a few mentions of battery retraining.

Photosphere makes a pretty good stab tho there are some weirds. Try looking up at the phone lines crossing against the sky just downhill, lol!

Pretty much lines up with what I suspected ...

Disappointing but a fair reason, and good that they've explained it properly.

Samsung have said something about how they'd put a lot of work into optimising software for battery life, and will continue to do so.

We both really enjoy Lebanese food and were delighted to find Afendi, through Google, and give it a try a couple of weeks ago. My wife is vegetarian and we mostly enjoy the range of dishes you get with a Mezze so we ordered 6 or 7 mezze dishes, half hot (falafel, foul medamas, grilled haloumi, sambousa), half cold (baba ghanouch, tabouleh, fatoush). The generous proprietor added some kibbis (pickles). It was all gorgeous and full of the flavour of freshly cooked quality ingredients. We finished off with turkish coffee and some of the proprietor's home made baklava. We really enjoyed the evening and will certainly be back on our occasional trips to Bristol. What's more, at less than £40, I thought it was very reasonable
