The Google Web Fonts – “Droid Sans is a humanist sans serif typeface designed by Steve Matteson, Type Director of Ascender Corp. Droid Sans was designed with an upright stress, open forms and a neutral, yet friendly appearance. Droid Sans was optimized for user interfaces and to be comfortable for reading on a mobile handset in menus, web browser and other screen text.”
The example of the Droid Sans is right infront of you, the whole Kampung Toys blogs are using Droid Sans typeface now since i found previous fonts kinda messy and not read-friendly enough.
Below are two ways to implement Droid Sans from Google Fonts into your site:
1st method, insert code below on the top of Stylesheet (style.css)
Drop and Cracked my HTC one X which got it since early April 2012. It is not worth for repair as explained by the technician, cost of repair will be not much differ than a new set. Urgently needed a phone as all information needed are stored on the clouds, so i have to purchased a new phone right-away.
OS: Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean with Sense 4+ (Software Num: 1.14.707.16)
Size: 134.36 x 69.9 x 8.9mm
Sound: Studio-quality sound with Beats Audio™ built in
(navigation buttons in red on One X+)
(One X+ front camera includes a glass cover surface)
Comparison between HTC One X+ and HTC One X:
In the box: same packaging with One X,includes User Manual, Warranty cards, Battery Charger with USB cable and same old low end earphone
Processor: NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor AP37 speed bump to 1.7GHz (from 1.5GHz) and GPU boosted from 416MHz to 520MHz. Personally, i feels the same through daily operation probably due to Jelly Bean update on One X reduced the Gap.
Storage: from 32GB to 64GB of internal storage (around 56GB of usable space)
Battery: from 1,800mAh to 2,100mAh battery. Don’t expect great improvement here, with my normal usage, it left 26% after working hours.
Main Camera: immediate launch, faster burst mode (20 pictures in 3 seconds vs 5 second on One X), slight faster autofocus but not much differ on touch focus.
Front Camera: upgraded from 1.3MP to 1.6MP, brigther and clearer image quality. Improved design of front camera which include a glass cover surface that easier for user to clean (which is a dust collector spot on One X)
Video Capture: recording begin faster with quicker respond of auto-focus
Weight: One X+ is marginally heavier 135 grams versus previous 130 grams
Design: nice touch on 3 navigation buttons in red, Power button in silver, red camera ring and larger Beats logo
Notification light: Brighter and more noticeable
Vibrate: Stronger vibrate while typing or navigate
Speaker: improved with new audio circuitry, result louder audio and less distortion on Max volume. I notice the increased max volume on One X+ by watching The Laugh Factory on YouTube, which usually hard to listen clearly without cover my hand around One X’s speaker to bounce the audio.

About Dropbox 25GB free space
Note that i am still expecting Dropbox to add another 2 years 23gb free space on my Dropbox account, but still yet to recevie any email since two days ago.
Update #1: answer from Dropxbox forum moderator: “You can only get 1 of each promo Bear so as you’ve already had a bonus from a HTC device you cant claim it again.”
Update #2: from Dropxbox forum moderator: “But, the T&C’s of the promotion state it is limited to 1 per type. Probably a restriction put in place by the manufacturer if I’m honest (to stop people taking lots back within the 30 day cooling off period to get extra space)”
