[How-to] Revert Your Captivate To Stock with Odin3 “One-Click”!

So, you got yourself a shiny new AT&T Captivate.  Great, fantastic device; SuperAMOLED, Hummingbird, blah blah.  As any new Android user, you hop on the interwebs and get to Googling.  Slowly, over time, the inevitable happens; you stumble onto xda-developers.com.  You see the light.  Within hours, you’re on your third rom, the thirst for speed clouds your judgement.  Life is great, your device is flying, multitasking with gusto.  It’s at this point the tech Gods decide to rain on your parade, or, more precisely, your Captivate.  The speaker is dead, the rain markers are clear, time for insurance.  But wait!  You’re running CFW.  They’ll never replace a device that has so blatantly been modified.  In comes Odin3.  With just “one-click” (really a few more than that), you’ll have your Captivate SGS back to factory specifications with none the wiser (it’ll also help in ‘bricked’ devices).  Hit the link for directions and downloads!

What’s that noise you hear? That’s the sound of Facebook crushing the competition. While Facebook has denied rumors that a Facebook branded phone is not in the works, this little invite was quietly sent out to the press and other mobile aficionados for a special Facebook “Mobile Event” at Facebook’s HQ. Remember not long ago when Business Insider got a “sure thing” tip that Facebook is building an Android based handset? Well we won’t have to wait long as this event takes place on November 3, 2010.

HP hires former HTC exec to head up Palm handset sales

It appears HP had done some early pre-planning of their road-map with the Palm acquisition. About three weeks before HP picked up Palm for $1.2 billion in April, the company recruited Todd Achilles as its vice presdient of telco sales. Todd who? Todd Achilles, the former HTC exec that ran the United States office of HTC in Bellevue, Washington. Prior to that, Todd was also the executive director at T-Mobile USA, working on the company’s handset strategy. We hope that Mr. Achilles will bring his sales and direction know-how, coupled with HP’s brilliant manufacturing prowess and build one fine webOS mobile handset.

Apple now number 3 in Mobile Market including iPads

In what we don’t really consider much of a surprise at all (for now), IDC’s June survey shows Apple has become the seventh largest mobile player in the global mobile marketplace – not including the iPad. But if the iPad were to be included in this survey, Apple would be No. 3 due to the 3.27million iPad units that were sold. Deutsche Bank’s Chris Whitmore states:

Our retail checks suggest this share shift continues in July, where the iPad is directly cannibalizing demand for other vendors’ notebook products, remarkably, Apple’s traditional MacBook business posted accelerated unit growth on a Y/Y basis in 2Q despite the launch of the iPad while every other Top 5 vendor slowed. Apple’s iPad ramped to an $8B+ annual revenue run rate in just 1 quarter. While we wait for competitive responses to the iPad (from HP, Asus, Acer, etc), we expect strong iPad uptake to extend globally as it is launched in additional countries / channels, supporting further share gains for Apple in the broader ‘converged mobility’ market.”
