Don’t Bother with Samsung Registration

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

This is not an “April Fools” post. It should be. I’d love to strongly urge you to register your tablet or phone with Samsung and reap all the rewards. It would be a cruel joke because registering your produce with Samsung is a joke. So it’s not just a one-day-a-year thing.

When it’s Safe to Send

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


You’re killing some time with your mobile gizmo in an airport or cafe. The network has a password, so it’s “secured.” So is it okay for you to log into a website, do your online shopping, or transfer cash with online banking?

Old Files I Keep But Can’t Open

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

Occasionally I browse my published archives. They don’t go back all the way since I lost a bunch of files when I upgraded computers in the 1990s. So some stuff is all gone now, but what about the oddball files that remain for other books?

Computer nerds enjoy the cryptic and the arcane. Specifically, symbols are something that the most Aspergy among us thrive in using. They offer the joy of being both convenient and cryptic, which should delight anyone, even a Vulcan.

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.

Videos Games Make Terrible Movies

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

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.

Daylight Saving Time

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

I’m a fan of Daylight Saving Time, but I think it should be year-round. The problem isn’t moving an hour of daylight from morning to night, it’s switching the clocks.

The New, Improved Apps Drawer

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

Not every Android device uses what I call “stock Android.” My Nexus phone and tablets do, which is where I first noticed the new, improved apps drawer.
