You forgot to plug your phone in last night, and you’re starting the work day with only 20 percent battery life. It’s a situation that’s happened to everyone, and it’s no fun at all. But with some battery-saving tricks up your sleeve, you can make minimal battery life last you through the workday. Plus, when you use these tricks all the time, you’ll conserve your battery, increase the time between charges, and decrease the likelihood that you end up stranded with a drained phone and no charger.
I don’t normally write stories about stuff like this, but it’s becoming strangely apparent that artificial intelligence, robotics and automation, and how it affects the human worker needs to be addressed; we need to talk about it. I’ve been seeing a lot of stories about robotics, artificial intelligence and automation in general. The combination of …View full post
I’ve been blogging for a long time and my favorite application to use for generating my articles is/was Windows Live Writer, but Microsoft has since sunset that product. It’s been replaced by Open Live Writer. Over the past year, since the Open Live Writer team took over the development of that application, the development team …View full post

On the heels of the post-presidential election, arguably one of the most stunning upsets in American history, people have become angry with websites that spread misinformation or flat out lies.

A while back I got an opportunity to do a review on iVue’s Horizon Pro 1080p HD camera sports glasses. People who like to do activities like to be able to record themselves, but trying to record using a smartphone while doing activities is kind of difficult. IVue has come out with a pair of sport camera glasses that has the camera built right into the center of the classes. They’re built really sturdy and water resistant.

I recently picked up a new camcorder to keep track of my son’s activities with tae kwon do and football. Some of the main things that I was looking for was a good optical zoom, HD recording, the ability to take still photographs during the recording process and to be very easy to use.
It’s kind of difficult to think that people are still looking for camcorders when most people try to use their smartphones now to record all kinds of events, but smartphones don’t have zoom lenses that get those long distance shots.
I chose to pick the Canon VIXIA HF R700 HF R700 camcorder. It came out around February of this year. It makes professional quality recordings and has a fantastic 57x optical zoom, full HD recordings, it’s compact and easy to use.

I think it’s always funny when you see companies trying to dictate the path of technology in such a way that it angers people.
Apple’s newly released a new iPhone 7 it’s causing a star with the absence of the headphone jack. There was a lot of discussion about the release of the iPhone 7, especially around the fact the new phone was not going to have headphone jacks. Apple presented several reasons why the headphone jack was being taken away, but the most compelling were that there’s a lot of third parties that have devices that interface with the iPhone 7 through the headphone jack.
The backing argument was that these third parties who want to use the iPhone 7 headphone jack were able to do this without paying any kind of royalties. That means that Apple was missing out on a whole new revenue stream for people who wanted to interface with the iPhone 7. In order for Apple to get in on that business, they have to remove the headphone jack and replace it with something more proprietary; something requires royalty fees if you want to use your device with the iPhone 7.

A couple of years ago, I made the conscious decision to switch from using an inkjet printer to using a color laser printer simply because the ink cartridges didn’t last very long and they were very costly. When you’re using an inkjet printer you don’t know exactly how many pages you going to be able to print with that set of cartridges.
When an inkjet printer goes to its maintenance process or prepares to print when you have issues where an inkjet printer doesn’t print correctly, there’s just too many things with an inkjet printer that are unsatisfying and void.
