Microsoft has been pushing their Windows Phone 7 operating system for quite a while now. Despite constant advertising schemes, the mobile operating system has completely failed to catch on in... the market. In fact, Gartner’s data shows that Microsoft only owns 2.7% of the “Worldwide Smartphone Sales to End Users by Operating System in 3Q11″.

Instead of coming to the c...

battery

A few weeks ago, I received a comment on one of my posts stating that a good way to improve battery life is to change your current background image to a black background. Naturally, I immediately... changed my background to a small black image I found on the web. In addition, I made sure I tracked my daily battery life changes through screen shots. Furthermore, I ran these tests using the Galaxy Nexus...

Android

Between the Curiosity rover landing on Mars (we hope) and the world supposedly ending, let’s face it, 2012 is going to be a big year. And who could possibly top 2011? After all, Honeycomb,... Ice Cream Sandwich, the Galaxy Nexus, and Google Music were all introduced in 2011. Not to mention the web based version of the Android Market. On the other hand, Apple did make a year of 2011 as well wit...

Since I could not take my hands off my new Galaxy Nexus, its battery life has been tanking. In my last article I had explained how calibrating your battery could solve your problems. However,... for most Galaxy Nexus users, calibration isn’t the problem. It’s your beautiful 720p 4.65″ display. But why limit your phone right?

Instead, you should head over to Amazon and...

Calibration

With great power comes great responsibility! And in the Android Community, with great power comes great loss of battery life. If you’re like most smart phone addicts, the battery meter... is often half empty (or less). And to make matters even worse, over time, your battery life will probably get worse and worse due to the degrading health of the battery itself. Therefore, I have two s...

Just because Android created Google voice control features first, that does not necessarily mean that they are the best. In fact, Apple’s Siri has become very popular because it is not... based on specific commands and controls like Google’s “Voice Commands” is. In fact, you can say practically anything to Siri and it will spit out some sort of answer. Therefore, as s...

If you own a smartphone, you have probably become accustomed to having a wireless internet connection where ever you go. On the other hand, unless you picked up a MiFi (personal hotspot) or... have a 3G plan for your tablet, that same internet connection for your tablet or computer is restricted to your house, or in some cases, your neighbors house. But what if all you had to do was push a...
