The Honeymoon period is over, but the relationship is still going strong!

At the end of 2017, I promised that I would spend less time on my phone, since I wanted to reclaim some of that often-wasted time for other things, like reading or spending more time with actual humans. But I need to use a phone — and often many phones — for work, so picking it  [Read More…]

Google+’s Android app is getting a major update for the loyal few

A “brand new” version of Google+ is coming soon with a lot of changes under the hood.

How to transfer contacts to a new Android phone

New phone, who dis?

Changing phones is already a strenuous time, getting all of your apps set up the way you had them, getting your services — and more importantly your game progress — synced up, and getting all of your text messages copied over from your old phone.
