Problem in using api of AbstractAccountAuthenticator, in android.accounts

 Hi geeks!

Im new to the android.accounts apis, and now Im trying to do something
with them but a seemly dummy problem occurs...
I`ve created an Authenticator for my app but did not yet implement the
abstract methods. The icon of it successfully appears in the system
Add a Account window, and I know that when I click it, the method
addAccount in the Authenticator will be invoked.

Now I wish to do some simple thing in this method, and write codes

public Bundle addAccount(AccountAuthenticatorResponse response,
        String accountType, String authTokenType, String[]
        Bundle options) {

    String accountName = "";
    Account account = new Account(accountName, accountType);
    String password = "example_password";
    AccountManager manager = AccountManager.get(context);
    manager.addAccountExplicitly(account, password, null);

    Bundle bundle = new Bundle();
    bundle.putString(AccountManager.KEY_ACCOUNT_NAME, accountName);
    bundle.putString(AccountManager.KEY_ACCOUNT_TYPE, accountType);
    return bundle;

Ive seen the demo of SampleSyncAdapter, and make moves like it. But I
practice using these APIs by directly adding an account. But system
crashed by the line manager.addAccountExplicitly(account, password,
null); Whats wrong with it?

1. what's the latest on wifi for the EEEPC 701SD

I've recently installed Android on my EEEPC 701SD 8Gb.
Which was really a very recommendable experience :-)

Downside was the unfortunate lack of wifi connection. It appears the
wifi card is constantly being re spawned.
I.E. constantly creating, connection, destroying the card driver.

Is anyone able to shed some light on this issue?

Thanks (and keep up the incredible work!! )


2. Android (dalvik) performance question for API design

Taking into account JIT and non-JIT devices, what would be most
efficient on Android for returning multiple values from functions:

an array like this:

float[] bestSize(float [] result) {

  // calculations...

  result[0] = width;
  result[1] = height;
  return result;

or a final class like this:

Size bestSize(Size result) {

  // calculations...

  result.width = width;
  result.height = height;
  return result;

Where Size is defined as:

public final class Size {
  public float width;
  public float height;
