Phones

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 [...]

Family-Locator

After using Sygic’s GPS navigation app (I’ll write a more detailed review of the navigation app in the near future) I decided to try their Family Locator app. It has proven to be rather useful. Just as the name implies, it locates members of your family. Once the app is installed, you have the option [...]

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 [...]

Nexus-7

Let me preface this by saying, I don’t own a Nexus 7 tablet, but someone close to me does and he’s not a happy camper.  Apparently, there is a widespread, pretty well-known problem regarding charging the tablet. In short, the tablet won’t charge or it barely charges. *Save yourself time and frustration.  Skip to the end of [...]

Road-Map

Purchasing a Smartphone saved me the expense of buying a GPS navigation device for my car. If it were not for my daughter looking at me the way only a teenager can and asking, “Why don’t you just use your phone?” I’d still be considering the purchase of a GPS device. Prior to using the [...]

Google-Play-Apps

From time to time I’ll share information on apps that have been helpful to me. In an earlier post, I mentioned KingSoft Office, Barcode Scanner, Amazon Kindle, WordPress, Smart Voice recorder and banking software. To that list of apps I’d like to add the following: (Insert your auto insurance company name here) App I don’t [...]

Moto-G

The reason is simple; it’s the one phone being offered by my cell phone service provider that met all of my needs. In my earlier posts I explain that I’m not a heavy cell phone user. In fact, I barely use a cell phone. When I decided to switch from a prepaid cell phone to [...]
