Portable electronics like Cellular / smart phones as well and Laptops MP3 players or similar devices.
As an owner of a Moto 360 its great to see it still have a life and continues to get better. I am the kind of person that keeps his phone on silent so getting these little alerts helps me to respond in a timely manner when a message is received.
If you are like me and are checking out the world of Android Wear you might want to take a look at some of these apps.
I know that there are a lot of articles out there and I wanted to capture what I felt the top 10 tech items for 2013 were. In no particular order…
Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Ridicule gargantuan tablets all you want. The Galaxy Note 3 may sport a gigantic 5.7-inch screen, but all that screen real estate is awesomely useful, the smartphone offers great battery life, and the included S-Pen stylus is incredibly useful if you like taking longhand notes.
A 2.3GHz processor and 3GB of RAM help power this massive device, and what you end up with is a smartphone that practically eliminates the need for a 7-inch tablet.
Massive smartphones aren’t going away—and the more we use them, the more we like them. And the Note 3 is pretty much the best “tablet phone” around.
If you are a child of the 90’s this will be an interesting flashback.
This is a great idea! Why are we not thinking this way in everything we do?
After several months with working with Sprint on line and the Sprint Store I continue to have the same problem with my S2. This was the letter to Sprint looking for a solution.
I am having the same problem as before. The phantom button press. When in a LOW 3G location the lower buttons act like they are being pressed. This is a Samsung S2. I have been into the Sprint Store several times (look at my account) and this past weekend they replaced my phone with another S2. I am having the same problem. If the S2 has a known issue why does Sprint not force Samsung to take care of this or offer a ???like kind or better??? replacement.
I am asking you to reset my eligibility so that I can start fresh with a new contract and a new phone. I am not paying any upgrade fee. I am aware of where I am in my contract however Sprint has not delivered the service or the hardware that I have paid for. If we cannot come to an agreement I will move my # and service to another carrier.
Sprint should have an obligation to their customers to provide reliable service including reliable hardware. If Samsung is not a manufacturer partner that will stand behind their products then Sprint and other carriers should not offer them.
Sprint responds with…
Your issue has been escalated to me to ensure proper resolution.
I do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. However, Sprint only provides service to your device. The performance of your device is not a Sprint issue. I am not aware of this issue with all Galaxy S2 devices. If the replacement device is having the same issue you can always take it back to the store and get another replacement for the same device or a device of equal value. You also have the option of going through the manufacturer “Samsung” to get a replacement.
After some additional back and forth with Sprint I am still no closer to a resolution that doesn’t cost me more money. Sprint’s last response was…
I really do apologize, at this time you are not eligible for an early upgrade.
The issue can not be a sprint issue if some phones work and some don’t. If the service was the issue, it doesn’t matter which phone you have it will not work. You can check out our refurbish inventory at www.sprint.com/preowned.
This is a bit of a slap in the face. You tell me that this is not a known issue… here are some links from people having the same issue.
… and many many more links can be found on Google.
the BEST reason why this happens…
Good Job Samsung :-/
Well here we are at the end of another year and while many people are recapping the top tech for 2012 we here at Geek Weekly would like to revisit the top tech fail’s. No particular order…
What is more delicious then a new Apple product? I will tell you, it’s a new product and a new app with the promise of all the Apple goodness. Good job Apple! Your cult like followers are still driving around looking for their destination but if you ask them there is nothing wrong. I would like to know where your brain wash app is saved. All that aside it’s good for the big dogs to take a hit from time to time. Let’s face it no one is perfect.
1. Windows 8 Professional (operating system)
With its biggest OS rollout since Windows 95, Microsoft seeks to embrace all things computing with a one-size-fits-all operating system. Love or hate the new Start screen and app storefront, look beyond those polarizing elements, and you’ll find substantial performance improvements, numerous updates to critical features, and a largely successful effort to retain compatibility with desktop applications while also fulfilling the needs of mobile apps. Windows 8 has already spawned new designs and all sorts of hardware experiments. This bold step forward won’t appeal to old-schoolers, but its sleek, modern look just might win over a new generation of users that Microsoft must attract to remain relevant.
2. Apple iPad, 3rd Generation (tablet)
We’ve listed the third-gen iPad here because it had the biggest impact on the tablet market—it was the first to feature Apple’s high-resolution Retina display. But if you want to buy a full-size iPad now, get the fourth-gen model: It has a faster processor, better Wi-Fi capabilities, and improved LTE circuitry.
