Download These Apps That Will Pay YOU Money

Most apps are free to download, or you have to pay for the app or game. But a few apps have emerged that give you money back. They are part of the “gig economy,” things like Uber and Lyft, where you do tasks for a small payment amount.

What’s Using All My Data?

Over the last few weeks, I’ve had a few customers who were experiencing unexpected data charges that were above and beyond their normal usage.

I always called this the drop-down…

Samsung has a way of transferring data to the S6 (and presumably other new Galaxy devices) called an OTG cable. Instructions are included, but I had the chance to play around with a live transfer, and here is a walkthrough with my impressions.   Before you begin, the Samsung…
