How to Disable New Photo Viewer in Facebook

Facebook recently rolled out the new photo viewer “Theater Mode” for all the users, and like ever design change this has been annoying most of the users while some others like it. The new photo viewer in my view is really bad and the previous one was a lot better, with a cleaner look. This new ‘theater’ look is no better..


When you open a photo in the theater mode, check the URL of the photo and from end of the URL and remove “&theater“. This will display the entire album back in the old viewer.
I know this is not a permanent solution, and you will have to repeat that step every time you open a new photo. I’ll update as soon as I find a better solution

News: Sony unveils Playstation NGP, PSP 2 – boasts WiFi and 3G

NGP? You read that right – the Sony “Next generation portable” is supposedly what the new successor to the PSP will be codenamed. Announced today, and due to be released by the end of 2011, it feels as though Sony is trying to move on from the PSP label into another level.

The latest NGP will sport a unique Super Oval Design form factor, what’s more, it’ll be first portable entertainment system to feature two analog sticks, which will hopefully enable a wider range of game genres.
The new PSP NGP will boast both 3G and WiFi connectivity, a five-inch multi-touch OLED display and runs on an ARM Cortex-A9 core CPU. The new portable playstation system also incorporates a unique multi-touch pad on the rear, and together with the front touch display, NGP offers new game play allowing users to interact directly with games in three dimension-like motion, through “touch, grab, trace, push and pull” moves of the fingers.
NGP adopts a new game medium, a small flash memory based card, dedicated for NGP software titles. Taking advantage of the flash memory feature, this innovative card can store the full software titles plus add-on game content or the game save data directly on to the card. By adopting flash memory based card, SCE will be able to provide game cards with higher capacity in the future, allowing developers to store more game data to deliver rich and immersive games.
NGP will also come equipped with two cameras on its front and rear, as well as three motion sensors, gyroscope, accelerometer and electronic compass – the same as the Playstation Move, all of which are designed to enable users to enjoy the world of entertainment that is linked with real life experiences.
