In addition to the items I refurbished and kept, I was able to refurbish and sell many pieces. Last month I put two maple dressers for sale on Craigslist. The dressers […]

I’m a US citizen that recently went on a 10-day holiday across the pond to the UK. Before leaving the US I researched to see if my cell phone would work while overseas. I went to the Consumer Cellular site with fingers crossed looking for a way to use my cell phone outside of the United […]

Not too long ago I did a quick review on a website called Duolingo. It’s helping me to learn how to speak Spanish. Back when I did the review I was 6% Spanish fluent. Now, according to Duolingo, I’m a whopping 30% fluent (I’m taking it slow). In my earlier review I failed to mention […]

For quite some time I had been trying to figure out how to use a headset with the Dragon NaturallySpeaking remote microphone app. While the remote app frees me from being tethered to the computer when dictating, I ran into the problem of having only one hand free.

How I Rooted My Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

How I Rooted My Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

Back in December of 2013 I aired my frustration about Samsung’s bloatware and the inability to install certain apps because I did not have root access to the device.
