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. A Little Investigation After hearing the unbelievable story [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Scribe

If it aint broke, don't fix it, right?  But what about trying to tweak it just a bit? I enjoy the functionality of using the Dragon NaturallySpeaking app on my Smartphone to dictate work to my computer. The downside to the setup, however, is that I have to hold the phone in order to dictate. [...]

Appaholic

I'll reluctantly admit, the purchase of the Samsung Galaxy tablet and the Motorola Moto G has turned me into an App-a-holic! I keep searching for apps that will make my life easier. As I indulge in my newfound addiction I’ll share my opinion on some of the apps I’ve found and use. Below I write [...]

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 [...]

Motorola 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 [...]

Cell Phone vs. Smartphone

Let me preface this post by saying I’m not much of a cell phone user. Cell phones are relegated to emergency only status.  As such, the thought of purchasing a Smartphone was considered a waste of time and money.  I’ve since changed my opinion. Smartphones get a bad rap.  We equate them to talking/texting drivers [...]

Gmail Accounts

With more than one Gmail account comes more than one Google Drive storage cloud. More than one storage cloud could be a good thing or a confusing thing. It’s a good thing when you carefully register your various Android devices using the same Google Gmail account. It becomes more confusing when you use different accounts [...]
