Remove Play Spam from Google bar


Do you hate the Play link in the Google Bar?  It sucks

This is how to remove the google play link, or at least hide it for now.


Goto Userstyles  



In Chrome click install this style as a script.


Click Continue

Install.

Refresh and or restart Chrome and pew pew the Play link is gone. 





Props to Dezert Dezine for being quick with a way to hide that awful Play link.

The new Android Market Sucks. How to Revert back to the old one.

First a rant. The new Android Market SUCKS. Yes it offers video rentals, books and looks pretty. But it still is buggy as hell. It still has problems updating some apps and the comment order doesn't make any sense. Comments from 2010 are showing up first. Generally comments are pure rubbish, but there are times I use the first few comments when there is an update as a warning,  


Now I have to shot out Mrinal Buddekar's article Get your Old Android Market Back. This is just a tweaked version of if.


Away we go.


First you need to be rooted.
Nandroid back up! 
Having Titanium Backup helps a lot! Esepecailly if you want to follow the original guide.
I used SU File Manager but it isn't free, worth every penny IMO. Ghost Commander File Manager and ES File Explorer allow for RW mounting of /system


Use Titanium to backup Market and Market Updater. 
Or copy /system/vending.apk and /system/MarketUpdater.apk to a safe place.


Use Titanium to uninstall your current market by quick tapping  Market and clicking Un-install. It will bitch that it is a system app. Do the same for Market Updater.


Note: When I followed Mrinal Buddekar's  article Get your Old Android Market Back. Titanium would crash every time I tried removing Market Updater.


So I had to mount my file system as RW and delete /system/app/MarketUpdater.apk. Also If you aren't using Titanium. You will want to delete /system/app/MarketUpdater.apk and /system/app/Vending.apk
I also deleted the folders com.android.vending and com.android.vending.updater in   /data/data


Reboot


Download old market files ZIP file here  or the original RAR file here  


Mount your file system as RW and copy updater.apk from above to /system/app/


Reboot


Lastly mount your file system as RW and copy market.apk from above to /system/app/


Reboot


Profit! 


Now you should have the old market. Works perfect on my Rooted EVO running CM7

Evernote Netbook Usability


I have been an Evernote user for about a year, being a stoner it comes in handy to remember things.
For Christmas my friend got me a HP Mini 110 Netbook. I hate the thing, but I'll save that rant for another day. Evernote doesn't have a native client for Linux, so I use their web interface. On the Hp's 10.1 inch screen it is pretty much unusable

I guess you really can't tell from the screenshot, but to me it sucks. Anyway I found two Userstyles for the Firefox extension Stylish (Chrome doesn't need an extension) 


See Niiiiiiice

User styles are like Greasemonkey scripts, but a little more limited in functionality.
