Of course, you could always up the data allowance and pay more every month, but here are some simple ways to reduce your data usage, other than “just connect to wifi”:     1. Video Uploads: Even…

What to do with all your Cloud Storage

On one of my radio apps, I keep hearing an ad for Microsoft Cloud that says “you can leverage your existing infrastructure” to blah blah blah. If your brain similarily turns off when you hear the word “cloud,” fear not, it’s not that complicated. Think of your hotmail or yahoo email account. You don’t store those messages on your computer, they are on Microsoft’s or Yahoo’s servers, “in the cloud” so to speak. But as storage has…

The two big Android phones to pay attention to right now are the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M8. Both are phenomenal devices, and you can’t go wrong with either, but how do they stack up against each other? For this article, I ran a few tests and did a few “real world” comparisons between the two.   Right out of the box there are some design differences. The Samsung Galaxy S5 sports a…

Cell Phone Scams: How to Avoid Them And What To Do If You Are a Victim

In the last few months I have seen a bump in the number of scams making the rounds regarding  phones, services, bills, etc. Since there have been a lot of legitimate changes, offers, and promotions from Verizon, it can be hard to tell the difference between the real deal and the scams.I have seen these come and go over the years, and they morph depending on whatever popular communications trend there is (text, Facebook, email, etc).…

Clear Up Space and Speed up Your iPhone With One Simple Step

One of the few potential downfalls of the iPhone is that it does not have expandable storage (though many of the Android and Windows phones are following this trend). And, with the 4s only carrying 8 GB of on board storage, it is easy to run out of room.   If you have been carrying your iPhone for a while, and haven’t cleaned it out, especially if you are noticing it running slow or you can’t download new apps, it may…

Time for another gear review! This time I had the privilege of taking home the LG G2.  Size-wise this phone is a bit bigger than the Samsung Galaxy S4, but not as big as the Note 3. The screen is also as big as you can get without stepping into the Note or other super phone category. One of the ways that LG achieved this was to move the volume controls from the side and top spines and put them…
