Samsung's Galaxy S series may be relatively special in the US for being a smartphone launched - in various identikit forms - across multiple carriers at the same time, but what if you want to use your AT&T Captivate on T-Mobile USA's network?

Samsung Galaxy S unlock hack is easiest to date

Happily Samsung seem to almost be conspiring against their carrier partners by apparently including unlock codes for the Galaxy S series in files actually on the smartphones themselves. The clever souls over at xda-developers have come up with a tool to extract said-codes from the .BAK files in which they lurk, and have put together a full guide on how to use it. Since you don't need to root the Galaxy S in order to unlock it, and there's also a relock system, you can even restore the phone to as-delivered condition should you need to send it back to your respective carrier. As ever, doing any modifications of this sort leaves you facing the risk of a bricked handset, but so far reports on the process seem positive.

ZXing (pronounced "zebra crossing") is an open-source, multi-format 1D/2D barcode image processing library implemented in Java, with ports to other languages. Our focus is on using the built-in camera on mobile phones to scan and decode barcodes on the device, without communicating with a server. However the project can be used to encode and decode barcodes on desktops and servers as well. We currently support these formats: UPC-A and UPC-E EAN-8 and EAN-13 Code 39 Code 93 Code 128 Codabar RSS-14 (all variants) QR Code Data Matrix Aztec ('beta' quality) PDF 417 ('alpha' quality) This library is divided into several main components which are actively supported: There are also additional modules which are contributed and/or intermittently maintained: : Partial C++ port : iPhone client + port to Objective C / C++ (QR code only) : The source behind our web-based barcode generator.

2D barcodes suffer from lack of decent generatorsGoMo News

There is no shortage of companies willing to supply 2D barcode reading software – particularly those aiming at the Apple iPhone segment where at the last count some 156 apps were barcode related. However, there seems to be a dearth of apps which generate 2D barcodes. What’s required is a generator that can create 2D coses that can be read by all of the barcode reading apps which claim to be ‘universal’. Quite possibly, Google has managed to muscle in on this requirement with its online generator. This GoMo News hack accidentally stumbled across Google’s app generator which performs exactly the task that most people are looking for. It’s quite impressive because it supports eight common barcode formats: – calendar event; contact; email address; geo location; phone number; SMS; text and URL. The barcodes Google generates definitely work. GoMo's URL However, the way the generator outputs barcodes is a little odd.
