For the last week or so I have been receiving annoying telemarketing calls. Today a found a real simple way to automatically re-direct these annoying calls to voicemail.

The following steps describe how to set this up in Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean).

  • Step 1– Navigate to the “People” application.

  • Step 2– Select the contact you wish to automatically re-direct to voicemail.

  • Step 3– Select the checkbox and exit.

New BlackDog Service

July 18th, 2010 No comments

I thought I’d mention a new product that we’ve been working on in our spare time. It is a service that allows iphone and android developers to keep data on the phones in sync with a master database.

It is very easy to use, is free to use, and is hosted on the BlackDog Foundry. The basic gist is that you log on to the BlackDog website and save the baseline data for your database. You then link in some iphone or android libraries on the device, and make a simple one-line call that will fetch new or changed records. It handles both incremental and full replications.

Check out our latest sqlite replication blog post for an example of how to use it.

BTW, the service also has preliminary support for Push Notifications.
