I worked on a patch to enable profile switching using NFC tags with CM9, and it's now merged. This will be available in the upcoming builds for NFC enabled devices such as the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S. Here's how it works..
1. Set up the profiles you like. A profile that I often use is a "Car" profile which disables the lockscreen. 2. Put a tag in this location (e.g. your car). 3. Select "Profile settings" then touch the settings icon for the profile you want to be able to toggle. 4. Touch the NFC icon on the bottom left. 5. You'll then be prompted to touch the phone to the tag you want to write. Hold the phone to the tag to write the profile information to it.
That's it. You can now simply tap your phone on this tag (when you get into your car) to enable the profile. Tapping it a second time will restore the previous profile (when you get out of your car).
Note that you need to unlock the device first, as with any other NFC code.
I just had a chip so salty that my next sip of water (which was hastily attempted) tasted exactly like the last time I went swimming in the ocean. Maybe this is what I get for buying Wise "Dipsy Doodles" Corn Chips.
Kodak files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Rochester, N.Y., USA
Thu Jan 19, 12:32 a.m. EST:+MarketWatch reports that Eastman +Kodak Co. has announced that it and its U.S. subsidiaries filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
The firm said the move "is intended to bolster liquidity in the U.S. and abroad, monetize non-strategic intellectual property, fairly resolve legacy liabilities, and enable the company to focus on its most valuable business lines." It said it would still pay employee wages and benefits and continue customer programs.
at this point we aren't really dependent on kodak for much other than moral support. they donate film still, which is nice for those of us who use it. and they give tours, they also dumped a lot of money into the eastman house and its programs but it is really its own thing now.
basically its just really sad more than anything else.
