Xperia P Available Root workaround Jelly Bean firmware
The Sony Xperia P (LT22i) received the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update last week in the form of firmware version 6.2.A.0.400. Unfortunately there isn’t an easy rooting solution for this firmware yet, but fear not, you can get root as long as you’re willing to invest in a bit of effort. The workaround involves downloading a zip file, flashing an Ice Cream Sandwich kernel, then flashing the zip file before flashing the Jelly Bean kernel.
This method requires that your bootloader is unlocked, however another method is also available for locked bootloaders, although not everyone is reporting success with this one. The good news is that there is a fall back and that involves downloading and flashing a pre-rooted Jelly Bean ROM. Hopefully, an easier one-click solution is on horizon, but until then these methods should work.

Mesothelioma Symptoms 2014
Mesothelioma is difficult to diagnose because the early signs and symptoms of the disease can be subtle or mistaken. Symptoms are all too frequently ignored or dismissed by people who are inclined to attribute them to common every day ailments. Sometimes patients live with symptoms for up to 6 months before being diagnosed but usually the symptoms are present for two to three months prior to a mesothelioma diagnosis.
About 60% of patients diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma experience lower back pain or side chest pain and there are frequent reports of shortness of breath. Lower numbers of people may experience difficulty swallowing, or have a persistent cough, fever, weight loss or fatigue. Additional symptoms that some patients experience are muscle weakness, loss of sensory capability, coughing up blood, facial and arm swelling and hoarseness.
Peritoneal mesothelioma originates in the abdomen and as a result, symptoms oft en include abdominal pain, weight loss, nausea, and vomiting. In the event that there is a hernia present, fluid buildup may occur in the abdomen as well.
Asbestos exposure is considered the primary risk factor for the development of the cancer. Anyone previously exposed to asbestos displaying any of these symptoms should seek medical attention from a doctor who specializes in the treatment and diagnosis of mesothelioma and thoracic oncology.

How long does it take for mesothelioma symptoms to appear?

One of the most unique facts about mesothelioma is that the disease is characterized by a long latency period that is very often associated with the disease. The latency period is the amount of time that elapses from the first point of asbestos exposure to the point where symptoms begin to appear so that a diagnosis can be made. In some mesothelioma cases the latency period is reported to be 10 years but the average latency for the majority of cases is between 35 and 40 years. As a result, the cancer often progresses to later stages before a diagnosis is made. When diagnosed in the later stages, mesothelioma treatment options become more limited and are less effective.

Symptoms of Mesothelioma

Provided below is a list of symptoms that mesothelioma patients may experience. Please click on a symptom to learn more about it.


Mesothelioma patients diagnosed with anemia have a lower than normal red blood cell count or hemoglobin in the blood which can cause fatigue and if left untreated, result in a loss of bone marrow.

Blood Clotting Disorder

A symptom experienced by many mesothelioma patients that can lead to anemia and other serious complications if not given appropriate medical attention.

Bowel Obstruction

A very painful symptom that can sometimes develop in peritoneal mesothelioma patients due to fluid buildup in the abdomen.

Chest Pain

Often experienced in pleural mesothelioma and pericardial mesothelioma patients, chest pain can develop as the tumor grows and places strain on the lungs and heart.


Pleural mesothelioma patients often develop difficulty swallowing (esophageal dyphagia) as the mesothelium continues to grow on the lungs.

Fluid Effusion

An effusion can occur in mesothelioma patients when there is fluid buildup affecting either the pleura or pericardium.


Hemoptysis, or the symptom of coughing up blood, can have its origins in the lungs, bronchi or trachea of mesothelioma patients.


Nausea is experienced in a number of cancer patients as it is often a side effect of chemotherapy treatment. Those diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma may also experience nausea as a result of increasing abdominal pressure.

Peritoneal Effusion

Peritoneal mesothelioma patients may experience a buildup of fluid in the peritoneum as the tumor continues to grow. This can result in an effusion which can inhibit the function of abdominal organs.

Pleural Effusion

In pleural mesothelioma patients, pleural effusion may develop when there is a large amount of fluid present in the pleura, the lining between the lungs and chest cavity.

Weight Loss

Weight loss can occur in mesothelioma patients as a side effect from cancer treatment or as the result of other symptoms that may also be present such as difficulty swallowing or nausea.

Samsung ATIV Smart PC 2014
There is no doubt that more and more manufacturers are delivering tablets with Windows 8 OS. Samsung decided to cover almost every aspect of this market and we are able to see new devices from this company while one of the newly added is the Samsung ATIV Smart PC.
If you are coming from most Android tablets or even aluminum iPads, the ATIV Smart PC will feel a tad heavy at 26oz (750g), given its all-plastic construction. However, considering that Samsung’s tablet has a larger 11.6” screen, and runs full Win 8 that has backwards compatibility with all programs ever written for Windows – something that typically requires a cooling fan – the weight is actually quite decent. Tell that to your wrist, though, as prolonged holding of the polycarbonate ATIV Smart PC2014 chassis brings fatigue much faster than with a typical ARM-based 10” slate, for instance, despite that there’s plenty of side bezel for your thumbs to grip it tight without touching the display.
The 9.9mm thin polycarbonate housing resembles the material used in the making of the blue Galaxy S III, with brushed metal looks, but hollow plasticky sound when you knock on the back. The back is a looker with the faux brushed metal housing, the elevated Samsung logo and the metal rim around the 8MP camera with LED flash by its side, and its tapered sides help in holding the tablet more comfortably.
The power/lock, volume rocker and screen orientation keys are situated discreetly on the sides in the top left quadrant – flush enough to blend with the chassis, but still easy to feel, and with good tactile feedback. Moreover, we have a full suite of ports and slots – microSD, USB 2.0, SIM card, and even a microHDMI for TV-out, covered with fitting protective flaps that are easy to pry open.
The Windows key underneath the display is slightly recessed, preventing accidental presses, and with a clicky tactile feel as well. Below it at the bottom are the dock connector and the keyboard attachment mechanism openings, which make it very easy to snap the tablet in and out of the dock with the push of a button.
Keyboard dock
Samsung throws in two extra input methods with the ATIV Smart PC – the S Pen stylus we all know and love from its Note family of phones and tablets, tucked neatly in the silo at the lower right corner, as well as a keyboard dock with a hinge mechanism, that transforms the Windows 8 tablet into a full-fledged notebook.
The metal hinge mechanism seems sturdy and the tablet snaps into place with one quick motion. Pulling it out is a bit harder, though, as you have to push the release button with a significant force before the latch springs are released, but we wouldn’t want that mechanism iffy anyway.
The sturdy metal hinge wraps around the back, making the assembly easier to carry around, but adds to the overall weight, which with the dock is north of three pounds (1.45kg), so as much as a typical 11” ultrabook, which, however, come with much better specs and storage.
The keyboard buttons are of the island type, pretty easy to type on, yet with a somewhat shallow travel, which is a common drawback on such dock attachments. The touchpad, for that matter, is sensitive, and with a decent click feedback.
There is an 8MP camera with LED flash on the back of the ATIV Smart PC, and a front-facing shooter for video chat. The interface is pretty basic in the Camera app, only letting you adjust the resolution, brightness, contrast and exposure, but you can always scoop an app from the Windows Store for color effects, HDR and the like.
The camera takes some time to focus, and the photos appear somewhat soft and undersaturated, with less detail than we would expect from the camera’s resolution.
The tablet shoots Full HD 1080 video, and the footage is mediocre, with wandering focus, pale colors, and can be quite noisy in low-light scenarios.
The biggest gripe about the default Win 8 media apps is not the music player or picture application, but rather the default video player, which doesn’t support such popular containers like MKV. Thus you’d have to resort to 3rd party apps or the good old desktop mode again to install any video player your heart desires, which gives you one less reason to stay and use the Modern UI elements. Samsung even throws in CyberLink Power DVD for free, though we prefer lighter solutions.
For a tablet the ATIV Smart PC sports pretty decent stereo speakers, which don’t sound too flat, or distort too much at the highest volume.
Jack of all trades or a master of none? The Samsung ATIV Smart PC25014, as other Intel Atom-based tablets with Windows 8 sound great on paper – thin and light, they are capable to run legacy Windows programs, and have battery life comparable with iOS or Android slates. The compromises for achieving such a combo, however, are not to be taken lightly. While the ATIV Smart PC is airy for an 11.6” tablet and well built, its weight is not comfy to hold for a prolonged period and with the keyboard dock is as much as an 11” ultrabook.
Thus the main advantage of the ATIV Smart PC is that it gives you double the battery life your typical notebook would offer, as well as all the input flexibility that comes with the S Pen and a detachable screen-keyboard dock combo, so if for some reason you need full Win 8 for all-day computing on the go, Samsung’s Atom-based slate would do the trick, but only in light usage scenarios.
For heavier usage you’d have to resort to something like the Microsoft Surface Pro, which is more expensive, or altogether get a notebook like the $500 Asus VivoBook, for instance, with the same size touchscreen as the Smart PC, same weight, and much better specs and storage, while spending the money you’d spare for an affordable tablet to use on the go.
The actual direct competitors of the ATIV Smart PC2014 here, however, are other such Atom Win 8 slates, like the Acer Iconia W510, which has a tad smaller screen for the same price, but its keyboard dock sports an additional battery, so you can muster twice the endurance of the Smart PC, while it doesn’t have the added S Pen functionality tucked in.
Or, alternatively, you can get an iPad 4 with hundreds of thousands of tablet-oriented apps, or a Nexus 10 with high-res display, yet if you need Windows 8 with this battery life on a tablet, there aren’t many such slates to choose from at the moment.

Asus VivoTab Smart 2014
Not so long ago on a tablet market you could choose between Android devices and iOS powered iPad. It is good to see that new devices, this time with Windows 8 and Windows RT are coming to the market. One of the latest that was delivered is the Asus VivoTab Smart2014.
It is not surprising, but the overall design and appearance of the Asus VivoTab Smart is reminiscent of the VivoTab RT that we looked at a couple months ago. It remains relatively compact for a tablet (10.4”3 x 6.73” x 0.38”) and is easy to carry around at only 20.46 oz (560g).
This time around, the VivoTab Smart has a white backing instead of the brushed metal on the VivoTab RT, but the front is still uncluttered by the display, 2MP front facing camera, and capacitive Windows home key. Along on the left edge is the microUSB port, and the hidden microSD memory card slot and covered microHDMI video port. Up on top is the raised power button, while on the right edge is the large volume rocker and 3.5mm headset jack. Around on the back is the 8MP auto-focus camera with LED flash, which can also record 1080p video, as well as a small external speaker hidden behind a group of small microdots.
Keyboard dock:
One of the must-have accessories for the Asus VivoTab Smart is the TranSleeve Keyboard. The sleeve is magnetic and can “grab” onto the bottom edge of the tablet, while the larger area of the sleeve grabs the keyboard. This allows for almost a laptop-type experience. But if you want to have the tablet stand on its own, you then have to take the keyboard off the sleeve and fold the sleeve behind the tablet to prop it up. Then you can just rest the keyboard on your desk or lap.
The Bluetooth keyboard is 10.25” wide, which should provide enough room for even large hands. We had no issue typing on it, and we like that it uses real physical keys that have a nice response to them, and even provide a traditional “click” sound when pressed. The trackpad at the bottom also works well, showing an on-screen mouse pointer, and there is also a left and right mouse-type buttons on the bottom. Since the keyboard is separate from the tablet and is connected via Bluetooth, youalso have to charge the keyboard via the microUSB port on its side.
Just keep in mind that the TranSleeve Keyboard is an optional accessory that you have to purchase, and does add 445g to the weight.
Interface and Functionality:
Unlike the Asus VivoTab RT that is limited by Windows RT, the VivoTab Smart comes running the full Windows 8 32-bit operating system. This means that instead of only being able to run Modern UI programs that are designed for ARM processors, the Intel Atom-based Asus VivoTab Smart2014 can run standard Windows programs, including ones for Windows 7.
We won’t go into great detail about the Windows 8 platform, since we’ve covered it most recently on the Microsoft Surface Pro. When it comes to personalization, Windows 8 isn’t as deep as Android, but it’s far better than what the iPad delivers. Windows 8 also incorporates social networking services such as Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, but the People Hub, which aggregates all social networking content, doesn’t execute well with its layout. Making matters worse, third party offerings don’t do the platform justice just yet; however, it’s something we’re certain that developers will improve over time.
Gestures for closing apps, swiping between them and viewing the Charms Bar on the right are quite basic and easy to learn once you get the hang of it. But if you don’t want to bother with the Live Tiles, you can always go into the desktop view, which has a traditional Windows 7-style desktop. Though missing is the popular “Start” button on the lower left, which is replaced by the full Start Screen in the Modern UI.
The Asus VivoTab Smart comes with two camera programs. The first is the standard one that is part of Windows 8, which is pretty much no frills and gets the job done. But our favorite is the Asus Camera program, as it is easier to use when changing between the camera, video recorder, and panorama modes, as well as selecting options, effects, and settings.
Images that we took outside were by no means jaw-dropping, but still quite good for a tablet with an 8MP autofocus shooter, as colors were natural and there was plenty of detail. Inside images were also good if there was plenty of light, though they did start to appear grainy with lower-light levels. We found the LED flash to be plenty bright to illuminate a dark scene, but the camera likes to focus first (which it can’t do well in the dark) and then turn the flash on to snap the image. It would be better if the flash came earlier to help the camera focus, like we’ve seen on some smartphones.
Recording video at 1080p is common these days, and VivoTab Smart does an OK job, though some detail is lacking. However, we did like that it maintains autofocus during the recording process, and playback is smooth and stutter-free at 30 frames per second.
Just like with Windows RT, the Photos Hub with Windows 8 doesn’t offer anything out of the ordinary with its feature set, but rather, it’s a basic picture viewer that offers us the ability to crop and rotate images. As for sharing, there isn’t a native option, and instead accessing the “Charms” section of the Windows 8 interface will present us some of the apps that can handle the sharing process.
The new Music Hub for Windows 8 is deliciously sweet looking, as it incorporates the Modern UI style of the platform into the music player – and also offers synchronization with your XBOX Music account. All in all, it’s one of the better looking music player interfaces out there. With the speaker discretely hidden behind the microdots on the tablet’s rear, it doesn’t produce anything spectacular with its output. Instead, its weak and mute tones make it notoriously difficult to hear in noisy environments. Thankfully, you can overcome this by plugging in a pair of wired headphones to the 3.5mm headset jack, or by using wireless Bluetooth headphones or speakers.
The Asus VivoTab Smart supports various video codecs out of the box (DivX, H.264, MPEG-4, and Xvid), though MKV is not supported and will require you to install a 3rd party player. Video playback is smooth and looks well on the 10.1” display, through we can’t help thinking how much better it would be if the display was full HD resolution.
With the Asus VivoTab Smart currently priced at $499, it’s a compelling option for those looking for a moderately-sized tablet running the full Windows 8 platform without breaking the bank. But when adding on the $150 TranSleeve Keyboard option, you’re now in the price of some Windows 8 notebook PCs.
Overall we like the VivoTab Smart as a Windows 8 tablet, since it has a lot of features for the price, and can run pretty much any Windows program, though the Intel Atom processor does seem to hold back performance.
