Tablet

No More Spying

Now that I have the Amazon Fire TV Stick and am able to watch a ton of movies, I decided to get a VPN to hinder the tracking of my viewing pleasure. Not only that, I’ve come to find out that cable companies can not only track my online usage, but they are allowed to sell [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Samsung-Netflix

I had the scare of my life when my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 crashed and wouldn’t turn back on. I was so shocked that all I could do was stare at the device in disbelief. Having had the device for all of about 6 months, this wasn’t what I expected. Here’s the scenario leading up [...]

No-Sound

I’m sharing another “DUH” Moment with my Samsung Galaxy Note.  It seems that ever since I purchased my Samsung tablet, I’ve had a problem with external speakers. If I watch/listen to something without the aid of earphones, the sound came through just fine. If I used the earphones that came with my iPod, I was [...]

KingSoft-Menu-Options

Mobile devices are great tools for watching the latest videos, social networking, texting and surfing the web.  They can also serve as a viable tool for office workers. I’ve not tested the full capacity of the Galaxy Note 10.1 word processing capabilities, but I can say I’m able to get a lot of my writing [...]
