Android - API Google Maps - Using Google Maps API v2

Google made a new version of its famous Google Maps API, called Google Maps API v2.

Things are new, such as the OpenGL ES version 2.

But let's try to create an application, in this Google Maps API v2 tutorial for Windows 7 and less or more.

UNIX & GNU/Linux - Tips and tricks - Having more than 4 workspaces with Ubuntu 13.04

With Ubuntu 13.04, you certainly found out that there is, by default, only one workspace.

If you want more, there are solutions.

First of all enable workspaces, then change (if you want) the number of workspaces.

Let's see this in this tutorial.

Oracle - VirtualBox - A better resolution with a guest Ubuntu

By installing a Ubuntu guest with VirtualBox on Windows, you likely found a basic resolution, such as 1024*768.

Unfortunately, you have a screen with a 1920*1200 resolution, it's impossible to let this like that.

There is of course a solution to increase this basic setup, but with a maximum of 1440*1050.

Electronics - MSP430 - Using P1OUT and P2OUT registers of the LaunchPad to manipulate LEDs with bit shifting

After creating a software to count in binary, let's see how bit shifting works.

In this tutorial we are going to see how to turn on and off a single LED each time we will be using the left bit shifting.

Electronics - MSP430 - Using P1OUT pins and LEDs to count in binary

Maybe you've always dreamed to understand how to count in binary.

What do you think about learning it with a MSP430 LaunchPad and LEDs?

If you are still interested, that's what we are going to see with this tutorial and a video.

Let's get started.

Electronics - MSP430 - Switching on a LED with a breadboard

In this MSP430 tutorial we will see how to use the LaunchPad to switch on a LED with a breadboard.

It's an easy tutorial for beginners. Simple, easy and useful.

You can watch the result of the tutorial directly with the video below:

Electronics - IAR Systems - Setting up the IAR Embedded Workbench for the STM32L-DISCOVERY board

It's not essentially easy to set up the IAR Embedded Workbench for a new project.

All boards are different and all microcontrollers too.

In our case we will be using the STM32L152RBT6 one.

So, if you didn't use neither IAR nor the STM32L-DISCOVERY board, it would be a bit complicated to begin playing with your new toys.

Electronics - MSP430 - Managing P1DIR and P1OUT registers to blink the red and green LEDs

This tutorial has to be seen as the most easy code that is possible to do with a MSP430 LaunchPad and then totally adapted for beginners.

Indeed, we are going to blink together the red and the green LEDs by explaining what we are doing with the famous P1DIR and P1OUT registers.

So, let's do it!

Electronics - MSP430 - Using the temperature demo GUI

Without changing anything, it's possible to check the current temperature with the MSP430 board and the default software.

Indeed, Texas Instruments provides a tool to display the temperature on your computer's screen.

So, let's go and display temperature with the Graphical User Interface (GUI).

Electronics - MSP430 - Restoring the default software

Once you've received your MSP430 board, you couldn't stop playing with it, clicking on every button, downloading all software you could find.

But at a moment, you said to yourself: "Eh, how can I do to restore the default software?"

That's what we're going to see in this tutorial to restore the demo default software.
