Wells Fargo Mobile Banking

Save gas and save time by using your smartphone or mobile device to make bank deposits. Why drive to the bank when you can deposit your checks right where you stand (or sit). If this old dinosaur can handle the task, so can you. Most, if not all financial institutions have their own banking app [...]

Profile

Back in the day when it was easy to wipe my computer clean, reformat and re-install the operating system, I had gotten into the habit of backing up my files. Although I backed up the files, I never backed up my profiles. I guess I never realized how important they were or didn’t really know [...]

Sick Laptop

This is a continuation of my last post where I outline my not so smooth computer reformatting process. I finally did hear from EaseUS about my Data Recovery Wizard refund request (my software review still hasn't appeared on their website). They referred me to a page on their web server that gives details about their 30 [...]

Comedy of Errors

The other day I decided to reformat my computer. It had been acting funky and was in need of help. The first error occurred in backing up my files when I over wrote valuable files on a thumb drive. Instead of saving my files in a separate location, I over wrote the existing files on the [...]

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 [...]

Google Docs

Since I’m in the middle of reformatting my computer (that’s a long story), I don’t have access to my usual software. Being that I’m inspired to write, I needed software that would facilitate writing and still be operational on a computer that is not fully functional. Since I have a Google Drive, I thought why [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
