Drone On

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

It was an impulse buy. I stared at the handsome box for several minutes. I touched it, then withdrew my hand. I touched it again. Eventually the thing found its way into my shopping cart. I own a drone.

I just read that J.J. Abrams is considering making video games Half Life and Portal into a movie. He might do a good job, but I’m not holding my breath.

Let Me Google That For You

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

I don’t know everything. How could I? I only know what to look for and how to look. Such skills aren’t really that difficult to acquire, but yet most people rely upon others to solve their problems without even making the attempt themselves.

My Galaxy S6 has a robust battery. It’s a great phone! And like all Samsung phones, it offers features beyond the stock Android set. One of them that I used recently was the Ultra Power Saving Mode. It worked amazingly well.

Build Your Own AutoCorrect Entries

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am
