Phones

Apple Tree

Well, I went and did it. I jumped into the deep end of the pool. I decided to get an iPhone, so I ended up with the iPhone 6s Plus. This is my first experience in Appleland. Well, not really. Some time ago I had an iPod Nano that I liked very much until the [...]

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 the Samsung Galaxy Note’s bloatware and the inability to install certain apps because I did not have root access. 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 [...]
