[Video] How To Calibrate the Phone Compass avatar แœŒแœ“แœƒแœ’ (Yuki | ้›ชไบฎ) | 2011-12-29 15:51 PST | 1 minute read | Update at 2021-10-09 18:10 PST

Since I got my first ever smartphone, Samsung Galaxy Y (S5360), (and Android too) I was having some problems with calibrating phone’s compass. The compass applications I found in the Android Market instructs users to do a figure-8 wave. I did all kinds of figure-8 wave and well, nothing.

Until I found this video showing the one figure-8 method I haven’t tried - wrist movement. It is as simple as that, all I can do is laugh at myself for doing all the silly figure-8 movements I can think of.

Watch the video:

The YOOki (ๆŸณ็ด€ ใƒป ์œ  ๊ธฐ) Chronicles

The YOOki (ๆŸณ็ด€ ใƒป ์œ  ๊ธฐ) Chronicles is แœŒแœ“แœƒแœ’ (Yuki ใƒป ้›ชไบฎ)’s return into casual and personal blogging. The name “YOOki” is a mash-up of the acronym of YourOnly.One and my nickname แœŒแœ“แœƒแœ’ (Yuki ใƒป ้›ชไบฎ).

Interestingly, according to Chinese legend, ใ€ŒๆŸณใ€ (YOO) is an ancient Chinese surname. The ancestors of the surname were closely linked with the ancient sage-king named Yu Shun. In Korea, the ใ€Œ์œ ใ€ (YOO) lineage traces to the Xia, Han, and Joseon dynasties. Holders of the surname Yu or Yoo had a reputation for charity and diligence.1

It is also the word for “willow” or the “willow tree” which means graceful or slender; and a tree growing near a body of water which provide continuous nourishment and resources for everyone. It can also mean to exist, an oil (anointment(?)), and simply as “U” (you).

The hanzi ใ€Œ็ด€ใ€ (ki) character means to record, be disciplined, provide order. While the hangul equivalent, ใ€Œ๊ธฐใ€ (ki; gi), means energy, spirit, a banner, and a period of time; and is also a suffix used to make a gerund or an infinitive.

Can you guess what I mean by ใ€ŒๆŸณ็ด€ใ€ and ใ€Œ์œ  ๊ธฐใ€ as the Chinese and Korean for “YOOki”?
