Galaxy Nexus Gets A Price Cut On Google Play

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

Google has been busy today announcing a whole bunch of new and awesome stuff, including Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Project Butter and major improvements to voice search, the Nexus 7 tablet, new stuff for Google Play, and the Nexus Q.

Monday, March 5th, 2012

I just got a Windows PC and sometimes it automatically joins wifi networks, which is great, because other times it doesn’t and I don’t know how to get it to see and connect to the network. If it makes a difference, the networks it can’t join are always those protected by passwords. But if I have the password, shouldn’t I be able to enter it and join the wireless network with MS Windows 7?? (more…)

Monday, December 19th, 2011

I’ve been exploring a new gadget this weekend, a Samsung Galaxy Note that I have for review. If you looked at it, you’d think it was a rather large smartphone. Indeed, compare it to the Samsung Galaxy SII that I have – which is a rather large smartphone – and you’ll see it needs another description.
