My HTC Desire Layout…

Now if you hadn’t heard already about the fact that I have an Android HTC Desire, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN! but if this is your first visit then you are excused! ūüėČ

I’ve used the following application from the Android Market called ShootMe, note to use this application you do need to have your phone “rooted” as it requires superuser privileges to do its magic. As for some strange reason I couldn’t get DDMS working from the current SDK for Android to take screen shots.

Basically, all I’m showing is how I have my phone’s appearance setup, now you have seven work spaces (screens) and one overview where you can touch the screen you want to quickly jump to, but only from the home screen.

The order of these images is as follows, Overview, Weather widget, Calendar widget, E-mail widget, Home screen, Friend stream widget, News RSS widget & FM Radio and Media player widgets.

SpeedTest Update…

A while back I¬†installed¬†a dedicated line splitter/filter for the home phone line so that I have a dedicated¬†extension¬†for ADSL & one for voice, this has given me the benefit of getting a more steady ADSL signal and so I can take advantage of the profiles provided by my ISP. A test done using SpeedTest has my current download/upload speeds as follows…

My router has the following figures (theoretical)

So as compared to the last time I was testing out the different profile settings (prior to the installation of this line splitter/filter) it has made a significant different as I could not use the fastest setting because it would randomly drop out several times a day (not good when you are hosting your own Email/Web Server!)

You can see the comparisons from the previous test results here and here
