Lenovo Thinkpad 8 (32 bit) – Dual booting Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu

After reading lots on this I figured I should at least make a quick blog entry for people to be able to find. It appears there is not a lot of support out there for our tablet and with Lenovo switching to a 64-bit version for the newer tablets these are essentially being forgotten about. […]

Continued – Loading.kwi – Analyzing (patching?) the Denso Navigation firmware…

So now that I had a little more time I moved a little further into this (also a friendly forum member loaned me a release 5.1 DVD which happens to have a difference firmware). I’ve found that the “Program Block’s” within the hardware modules have a 32bit checksum as the last 4 bytes of each […]

Loading.kwi – Analyzing (patching?) the Denso Navigation firmware…

I purchased a used Lexus not terribly long ago with Factory navigation. I also had a Mitsubishi which had it. And both apparently used the same Navigation software, done by Denso. The lockouts and nag screen have finally pushed me to the edge of starting to dig into the mechanisms by which these work. I […]

Citicard and Stupidity…

So the other day I got the itch to finally correct some ancient passwords of mine to secure single use passwords. Citicard was among those needing to be updated. I go and set the new password (20 alphanumeric chars) and the page kicks back at me stating my password doesn’t meet the requirements! Needless to […]

Windows Tablets – Terrible?!

So I finally picked up a Windows tablet to try one out. I refused to even consider a RT device as what good is a windows computer that can’t run backwards compatible windows applications without source to port to a new cpu!? As a result I got a Acer W510 32gb tablet with Windows 8 […]

Buying digital music still is basically not possible…

So before I get started on my rant I’m sure someone will argue “Why not just buy MP3’s?” Honestly, because I CARE about sound quality and I want the lossless music a CD would have. I’ve been looking for several weeks now to purchase a copy of The Birthday Massacre’s Pins and Needles album. If […]

Rosen Navigation systems

So for the Toyota Highlander I bought a few months back my wife wanted a navigation system. We agreed that OEM would be best but toyota pretty much doesn’t even offer the stereo as a supported upgrade once a car is delivered and piecing together a system was going to cost me over $3000 it […]

Why Apple and the iPhone are still second in the smartphone market…

So I got a little bored with Android lately and decided to play with a iPhone 4 on verizon since I haven’t seen it yet. First impressions, I liked it, though it’s quite small. Thats not really a problem, I’m just ready for a 4 or 4.3″ screen since I’ve had a 3.7 for over […]

Trend Micro is TERRIBLE

So recently it appears Trend Micro has rated this website as “hacking” which I don’t argue with. And a sub-rating of “dangerous” thus blocking it in their AV program. This is needless to say quite annoying. Lets see. Have we ever in the history of this site tried to trick and/or hack a user? No. […]
