New Calculator Helps You Figure Out Hex, Decimal and Binary At a Moment’s Notice
Imagine you’re at a club, and you are chatting up this beautiful creature who you fear might just be humoring you. You keep asking her for her number, and finally she relents, but you find it strange that she reaches for her phone. After tapping on the screen for a few seconds, she says she has a game for you, and if you “win” her number will be revealed. She asks if you have a piece of paper so she can give you her number, to which you whip out the requisite tools and await her number.
00 84 5F ED
That’s what she gives you. At first you don’t get it, but then you realize you have seen those numbers before—something called “Hex numbers.” And of course you’re intrigued at this since you fancy yourself as a bit of a geek. So you set out to solve the puzzle.
Now of course you know how to convert the HEX to DEC by hand. For those who do not, XDA Senior Member KobiP created his HDBHelper application just for you. HDBHelper allows you to display (and calculate) in HEX, DEC and BIN. So you can easily enter in the HEX code the woman gave you into the application, and receive the corresponding entry in DEC or BIN. Here’s what you would get with the BIN conversion:
00000000 10000100 01011111 11101101
Even though that doesn’t look like that much help, and reminds you of The Matrix, you decide to see what the DEC conversion gets you, and BINGO! You’ve found it:
Now to decide if you wait the typical three days or if you spring and make the call tonight. All I can say, is “May the Schwartz Be With You!”

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...
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....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. 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...
