For some time now I have been searching the web looking for more information as to why my MOTO 360 will not vibrate to let me know I have received emails, texts or calls. I recently upgraded from the HTC one M8 to the Samsung Galaxy S6 where it started with no notifications when receiving TEXT messages. Later is was on incoming calls. The MOTO 360 would light up but not vibrate at all. Most recently receiving Gmail.
I have performed factory resets countless times and I have un-installed and re-installed Android Wear related apps on my phone. Nothing worked! I was at the end of my rope until I found an article about how the Gmail app was not vibrating as well and had to be adjusted in settings. It did the trick!
Who knew that turning on the vibration under the notifications actually allowed the MOTO 360 to vibrate? That said I also found this to be true in Textra (my preferred texting app) and in my phone settings. Locating the notification setting in each app then turning it on
20 years ago I was the store manager at a Babbage’s Software store. Now long gone and replaced with places like GameStop, Babbage’s was one of a few retail locations where you could get software and the latest gaming systems.
When Windows 95 launched on Thursday August 24th 1995 (Windows95) Start buttons everywhere!! Windows 95 would set the tone for the future Windows operating systems. Even to this day users can let go of the START button.
It’s interesting to hear that Samsung’s profits are down again. It’s said they forecasted much higher than what their demand was on the new phones. I got news for you Samsung, you are not Apple with a cult like following. In Apple’s defense their new phones were a significant change over their previous phones. Their larger screens gave users what they wanted. Although the new Samsung phones are top quality I feel that the Android market is flooded with new and better devices far too often to keep up, let alone the ability to upgrade as often as something new hits. They are just too expensive to repeatedly replace them.
One of the biggest problems facing video games as an artistic medium is one of preservation. Thanks to HD remasters, digital distribution and the Internet Archive that’s becoming less of an issue. But we still need to do more to keep a record and constant catalog of gaming’s past moments. That’s the idea behind the awkwardly named “Intellivision Gen2 Video Games for PC & Mac” on Kickstarter. As you might imagine, it’s modernized versions of Intellivision titles. Astrosmash, Nightstalker and Shark! Shark! will get the new pixel art, expanded levels and scope should the project reach its $100,000 goal.
This robot was adorable and they were going to send him inside to get blasted away by a crazed killer. Not so. The robot inched along the street, then up the path to the house. It opened the locked door with ease and proceeded to follow and film the killer. He shot at it. It kept going. He went upstairs to escape it. It climbed up right behind him. He shot at it again.
