It’s a time saver and time manager, plus an example of a great mobile app.

If your employer uses ADP for payroll or benefits, you need the ADP Mobile app. I hate to throw out a conclusion at the beginning of any review, but that’s what I think every time I check out a feature or fire it up to see how something is done while I’m writing this, so that’s where I’ll begin. And that’s coming  [Read More…]

Anker PowerHouse 200 review: Portable power done right

This is overkill for your basic charging needs. But it’s a godsend for some real on-the-go juice.

Dig through your gear bag real quick. How many portable batteries do you have in there? How many watt-hours of juice are stored up in those little plastic housings?

Now think about just how limited those things are. They’re good for charging phones, for sure. And maybe a USB-powered laptop, if you’re rocking something recent. But that’s about it, right?  [Read More…]

Chromebooks in the workplace: How one non-profit uses Chrome OS to get things done

Chromebooks and “real” work? It’s possible, even in the enterprise.

Despite its first impression, Chrome OS is great in the workplace. Every type of business needs access to email, internal sites for company announcements, calendars, and other basic tools. For the longest time, Windows has dominated the business landscape, but increasingly Chromebooks are challenging that notion.

During the weekdays, I work for a non-profit focused on mental and behavioral health. We have offices in a few counties  [Read More…]

Microsoft made Android Windows-friendly — but the work is far from done

I’m a big fan of Microsoft’s services and support on Android, but there are still too many Microsoft ecosystem apps and services that are either half-baked or simply not available. Here’s what I’d like to see Redmond do next.

For Windows 10 Mobile users, it has been a painful couple of years. After months of virtual silence, Microsoft unceremoniously announced it was leaving its phone users high and dry, as Windows 10 Mobile entered maintenance mode. No  [Read More…]

HTC keyboard ads likely an error, but damage is already done

HTC is telling users to roll back the latest stock keyboard update, which clutters up the screen with ads.

Ads in the stock keyboard app on a flagship smartphone. Added quietly via an app update. Which then asks you to pay to remove them.

You’d be hard pressed to come up with a more comically villainous thing for a phone manufacturer, or app developer, to pull on its users. Yet that’s what’s been happening to some HTC  [Read More…]
