I am brand new to Android development. Hopefully this is an easy one. Relevant code (I hope) below. import android.location.LocationManager; import android.content.Context; LocationManager locationManager = (LocationManager) getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE); I get the following: Error: error: cannot find symbol method getSystemService(String) All the code samples I am seeing say to do the above. I do notice that if I do this instead... Context cont; locationManager = (LocationManager) cont.getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE); then that particular error goes away, but of course, you have an uninstatiated variable cont. As mentioned, I am new to Android, so I don't know what a Context object is and how to get …

I've created a mobile app and styled it with CSS and ThemeRoller on Dreamweaver. It looks great on safari but when I use PhoneGap Build to test it on my Android device, the styling disappears. I've tried embedding the CSS as well as the ThemeRoller style into my code without any luck. Below is a snippet of my code. <link rel="stylesheet" href="themes/jquery.mobile.icons.min.css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile.structure-1.4.5.min.css" /> <link href="styleSheet/fgStyle.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"> <link href="themes/fg-designs-custom-theme.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"> <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.1.min.js"></script> <script src="http://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>

Has anyone heard of the software or code that can send selected images (Coupons) from a webpage to a customers cell phone based on which coupons he/she choices and what 10 digit number they enter?

I have been using a D-Link DSL-2730U modem for over a year now. This modem served a desktop PC (connected directly from the modem to PC's LAN card), a laptop, and three smart phones (by wi-fi). None of us had any problem in accessing the internet from the PC/laptop/smart phones. About 10 days ago, one of the mobile phones (Sony Ericsson minipro) stopped getting the wi-fi connectivity from this modem, though the others continue to get the wireless or the wired connectivity. This mobile phone picks wi-fi connection from modems belonging to my friends when I visit them and am …

Aside from being one of the [most hated CEOs](http://www.businessinsider.com/hated-tech-ceos-2011-12?op=1) in the world of technology, Steve Ballmer is hard at work trying to design a new world for Microsoft and the future of consumer electronics and, simultaneously, saving himself from a history of redicule. Ballmer's ambitious claim of [400 million](http://venturebeat.com/2012/09/05/ballmer-400m-windows-phone-8-windows-8-devices/) Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 devices comes along with their joint HTC announcement of the [8X and 8S](http://opedtech.com/2012/09/19/windows-phone-7-is-dead-long-live-windows-phone-8/), as well as the Q4 release of Windows 8, Windows 8 RT tablet, and rumors of a (much overdue) new gaming console. All of this however hinges on one man: Steve Ballmer, …
