Android

Recently I became aware of another free movie/TV streaming service called Terrarium TV. I happened to be browsing around in an online forum reading about the problems Kodi folks were having when I came across one comment that was a game changer. The comment was from a person who had used Kodi and switched to [...]

Chrome

When I realized it was possible to install Google Chrome on an Amazon Fire TV Stick, it was the answer to several of my dilemmas. Prior to the Fire Stick I used Roku. What I liked about the Roku was the mirroring feature. It allowed me to cast whatever I had on my tablet or [...]

Old Moto G

After purchasing a new iPhone and still getting used to all the bells, whistles and tricks, I was wondering what to do with my old Moto G cell phone. It’s only 8 gigabytes in size so it can’t do very much. 8 GB doesn’t offer much space for uploading photos and videos, but, I can [...]

Silicone Keyboard

While I’m slowly embracing the new mobile technology, I still have one foot (and probably ¾ of my body) entrenched in the old desktop/laptop technology. I love the convenience of being able to carry a tablet or smartphone around with nearly the same functionality as my laptop, but small things come at a price. The [...]

Sync-iTunes

As an Android user, I always wanted to know if there was an easy way to transfer music/books from my iTunes account onto my android phone. Imagine my glee when I came across the Sync iTunes app that does just that. The best part about it is the app transfers the music wirelessly. I not [...]

Pushbullet

I recently downloaded the Pushbullet app and it has made my writing life easier. Often times when I’m writing I find myself repeating the phrase “I wish I could just…” or “It would be nice if I were able to…” When I hear myself say that too many times its time to go app shopping. As a [...]

roots

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. For you newbies like me, root access is tantamount to having administrative privileges on the device. Imagine that… I bought a device and I don’t have [...]

Charging-Samsung

The quickest way to charge the Samsung tablet is to use the charger that comes with the Samsung tablet. If you do that, you don’t have to read the rest of this post. For those of you who are curious enough to see just how many incorrect assumptions occur when using the incorrect charger, read on. [...]

Nexus-7

Some time ago I wrote about the Nexus 7 and the difficulty many users were having charging the device. Either it would take forever to charge or it wouldn’t charge at all. Apparently the charging issue was/is a widespread problem causing frustration to many Nexus 7 owners. I don’t have a Nexus 7, but I have [...]

iPod-to-Smartphone

This was not a conscious decision. I abandoned my iPod because my iPod abandoned me first. How the Split Occurred My iPod died. Well, it didn’t die, but the On/Off button stopped working. The iPod remained on but without having the button to activate the screen, I couldn’t control what played. I had an endless [...]
