Yesterday, we discussed the second part of our tech giants coming to the west series with Huawei. What people may not know, however, is that Huawei owns a company by the name of HiSilicon. Hisilicon's processor department may not be the most popular in the west but their technology is impressive, with year on year improvements being easily seen. In the coming years, manufacturers such as Qualcomm may have to face the fact that there are other companies just as able...

[TUTORIAL]A 13 year old’s guide to programming – Tutorial 3
Hydros’s Programming tutorial for a 13 year old
Well, this is my first time posting a tutorial which I have actually tried in making. I kinda felt bad for the people who are missing out on programming because they htink it is hard. Well, I finally devised the ultimate tutorial which a 13 year old should easily be able to understand if he puts his/her mind into it. I posted pics for EVERY STEP along he way so you can walk through it. Simply open the zip and there are three directories
IMAGES – has all the images to the tutorial (not all tutes have images…don’t be babies)
TUTE – a tute in .doc format
SOURCE – whatever program we made that day, I posted a source code area to post up source for it.
-Enjoy and I hope people learn a few things from it (even though it is quite basic)
NUMBER OF TUTES MADE SO FAR: 3
Tutorial 1: We install visual studio 2010 express edition c# and we make a sooped up version of the boring helloworld app. Maybe even a “pull my finger” app can be developed with the limited knoledge learned from this tute.
Tutorial 2: We make a continuation of helloworld with variables so the user types in a name and the program will say “hello…” + name
Tutorial 3: We make a simple calculator using functions for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing (kinda complicated but still very easy). – With pictures in the PDF
-If you find problems with ANYTHING, please feel free to post in the comments section below and I will do my best to reply within a day to all questions.
You can find more information in the tutorials thread.

TapDeck which has just entered beta, is a smart wallpaper app that allows you to change to a random wallpaper by simply double tapping your screen.
