Finding Mr. Good-Notepad

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

I really liked the AK Notepad. It was a good app, an original Android app, widely-available, and for a while it offered online synchronization of your notes. Now that AK Notepad has been retired, I’ve found and can recommend an Android notepad replacement.

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:00 am

I had originally written a long blog post for today, Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year. The post listed links to several electronic goodies you could buy this holiday season. I just erased the whole thing.

Tablets Rule

Filed under: News — admin @ 9:13 am

If technology sales were to look like a delicious pie, then the slice taken by tablets would be pretty much half the pie. Sales of notebooks (laptops) is a third. And the rest, which is about 17 percent, goes to desktop computers.

The tablet revolution is well underway.

Your computer is doing more than just sitting there waiting for you to type or move the mouse.

Shooting the Screen

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

As an author of a 30-foot-tall stack of books on technology, one of the tools I use frequently is the screen shot. It’s a snapshot of information displayed on the screen, which I then place into my books to help illustrate various topics and procedures. It’s one of those nerdy things I get excited about.

Why You Can’t Force Upgrade Your Android Device

Filed under: News — Tags: — admin @ 9:36 am

The link (below) describes why the endless touching, or mashing, of the Check For Updates button on your phone or tablet doesn’t force an upgrade. Unlike a desktop operating system, Google is a big more judicious in how new versions of the Android operating system are distributed.


The Confusing Yet Useful Topic of Continuous Section Breaks

Sections are a concept that isn’t readily understood. In fact, you can use Word for decades and never bother with a section break. That is, until you need to solve a specific page-level formatting puzzle.

The Smartphone Kill Switch

Filed under: News — admin @ 1:59 pm

Cheers to Apple, Samsung, and Microsoft for pushing the idea of a smartphone kill switch. Should your phone be lost or stolen, the kill switch software prevents anyone else from using it. Smart idea, right?

Jeers to the Cellular Providers who repeatedly reject the idea. No, for them security takes a back seat to profit.

Android Storage Management

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

It remains my firm belief that no one obtains an mobile device so that they can hone their file management skills. The foundation for that belief may be crumbling, however, as time moves forward. As phones and tablets become more central to your digital life, the ominous hydra of file management lumbers down to center stage.

OMG! Another Worst Virus Ever!

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

The CryptoLocker virus is in the news. You probably have heard about it, which demonstrates how the media is doing its job. Perhaps this is a replay of the Michelangelo virus from the early 1990s? Or maybe it’s just another way the anti-virus companies found to up their sale? Or could it be real?
