Connect To The Web With Your Transformer Via An Ethernet Cable

At this point, if you read the title of this article, you are probably be thinking “what?”. We all know and love the ability of our devices to be able to connect to the net regardless of where we are thanks to the power of Wifi and 3G/4G. However, when you are comfortably sitting at home or at the office and you have a router close by, why do you have to suffer from a slow (when compared to wired) internet connection? As you probably know, the latter devices such as tabs and certain Android phones come with USB host support, which allow you to attach a wide variety of devices to your gadget such as mice, keyboards, hard drives, etc. To take this one step further, XDA member Quiethinker posted a driver pack for Honeycomb 3.2 in the Transformer section that basically enables Ethernet through USB capabilities on Asus’ tab. Just think about the possibilities of what you can do with a more stable and faster connection on your favorite device. Streaming content and never buffering because your signal is too low, playing online games with friends with virtually 0 lag when compared to them, and so much more.

One final note, the dev has posted a small list with “approved” Ethernet dongles that work with this pack. Please give this pack a shot and leave some feedback. Also, if you happen to test a different adapter from those listed, please leave the model behind so that the OP can update his list.

The attached package contains USB to Ethernet driver pack for Honeycomb v3.2

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
