When I’m grocery shopping and I see another geek with a smart phone or tablet in hand, checking items off their list, I give a little smile to acknowledge our matching geek-ness. I would like to ask them what program they’re using and what they think, but I don’t want to be the crazy-lady geek.
As a true geek, I typically purchase a new desktop and laptop every two years. Alternating years; I am an unpaid blogger afterall.
My system for getting rid of the old computer has always been giving it to someone in the family who needs it or storing it in my basement. But now that I am 1,600 miles away from most of my family and live in Texas, where houses are not typically built with basements, I have no system. My old Dell tower is currently just sitting next to my new HP tower. Read more
Owning a smart phone doesn’t automatically make you smarter and more organized. But I’d like to think that once you find all the right apps, it does.
And I guarantee that a great note-taking app will miraculously make you more organized. NoteMinder - for your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad – is the first note-taking app that does not require you to type or press any buttons.
To get things done we often rely on our smart phones to help us. And while you love your AT&T iPhone, when it drops your call or data signal you just want to throw it out the window.
At home and or away, charging your devices has become part of your daily routine. And when you’re home you can set up a charging station to ease part of that routine. But what happens when you’re away?
Bringing your charging station with you on a trip is ideal and Aviiq knows this. Read more
Today I’m over at Dmacrye Tech discussing the JuiceDefender App for Android:
If you ask most Android phone users what their biggest complaint is, more than likely the answer is battery life. We love our phones and we use them for…well, for everything. And then we wonder why the battery rarely lasts a day.
JuiceDefender is a free power manager app for your Android phone that will save your battery’s power and extend its life. It has been said that it can increase battery life by 1.78 times more in 48 hours of usage (mine was 1.63). What JuiceDefender does is tackle the phone properties that kill your battery – WiFi, Bluetooth, the display and when accounts sync. Read more
By now I am sure you’ve heard that Verizon has followed in AT&T’s footsteps and will no longer be offering unlimited data plans. I know, it sucks.
But if you happen to own an iPhone, there’s an app that can help monitor your data usage so you don’t go over your plan. Read more
Many of us use our smart phone as our primary camera to take pictures. And let me just say that one should only do this if they have a quality camera on their phone. If I see one more blurry photo taken by a BlackBerry on Facebook, I am going to scream.
The question is, what do you do with those phone pics? So many of us just leave them on there, never to see the light of day. But the iPhone Photo Cube Printer makes it easy to print your photos. Only the good, non-blurry ones! Read more
The Neat Geek is once again guest posting over at Tech Ature, which is a great site for tech reviews and news.
Sure there are thousands of apps you download for fun. But there are some apps that are serious and can help you stay healthy. And after you use them, you can go back to making fart noises with iFart Mobile.
No matter what we have going on in our lives, the one thing we have in common is that we all have to eat. And for some of us, we also have to feed other people. I’ve tried to get my five-year old to cook her own dinner, but that hasn’t worked out yet.
I’m big on meal planning. Every Sunday I go through my recipe book, pull out meals for the week and then I add the needed items to my grocery list (right now I’m using Grocery King for Android). But I would love to try MealBoard – Meal and Grocery Planner for iPhone.
Girls love adorable little accessories to dress us their phones. Guys love a cell phone case to protect their phone from…well from themselves.
Below are two cases for your iPhone that offer the cuteness for the ladies and the protection for the men. Read more
You’re busy. You have places to go and people to see. You don’t have time to bring your car to the mechanic every time a light comes on.
So the next time your dashboard starts flashing lights at you, simply connect the goPoint Technology GL1 OBD Car Diagnostic Gadget to your engine and download the goLINK free app to your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
We all know we’re supposed to drink eight glasses of water per day. Some of us do, some forget and some say Are you crazy, I can’t drink that much water.
For those of us who often forget, like yours truly, your iPhone can now nag – er, remind – you. Read more
It’s not a service that is necessary for everyone, but if you’re important enough to have two cell phones – a la Ari Gold – or if you’re just sick of paying for extra minutes from your cellular service, then this may interest you.
