Your apps’ default settings don’t put your privacy first, so make sure to check them

Default settings never have your bests interests in mind, so check them out!

When you get something new, the first thing you’ll want to do is start using and enjoying it and seeing the things it can do. That’s why we want those new things in the first place, whether we’re talking about a physical thing like a phone or a toaster oven, or a digital thing like an app or a new album. But if your  [Read More…]

Why don’t more phones have audio profile switches?

It’s one of the most useful features Android manufacturers leave out.

If you’ve ever used an iPhone or a recent OnePlus device, you’ve undoubtedly encountered the switch on the lefthand side above the volume buttons. While the exact functions of the switch will depend on which company’s phone you’re using, the main idea is the same: a hardware switch that instantly mutes your phone, without having to turn on your screen and adjust the volume manually.

Why don’t Fortnite and other PlayStation 4 games play nice with Xbox?

Is Sony a big evil monster keeping you from playing with your Xbox friends so they will go out and buy a PlayStation? No, probably not.

Game consoles have never really played nicely together. In the past, the reasons for this were largely hardware-related, with consoles built on different hardware architectures. This most recent generation of consoles saw a huge change in this limitation by using nearly identical processors, paving the way for a world in which  [Read More…]

From the Editor’s Desk: We don’t need longer battery life, we just need to use our phones less

Consider this option.

I haven’t met someone who doesn’t complain about the battery life on their phone to some extent. Walking through airports, as I so often do, people aggressively hunt for power outlets so they can charge up their phone. On the streets of every major city I visit there are people walking with a power bank stacked underneath their phone with a USB cable so they don’t have to stop using it on the go.

I use my phone in the shower — don’t judge, just listen

This isn’t some weird phone addiction thing, I promise.

I travel a fair bit. Sometimes just for fun, but usually for work. When I travel for work, I’m usually fairly burned out by the end of the day. I’m not much of a drinker (or smoker, for that matter) and so I usually turn to my phone to watch something and just sort of detox from the day. It’s usually whatever show I would normally be watching  [Read More…]

Cord cutting: 18 months later, I don’t miss cable TV

Or the bill that came with it.

Subscribe to Modern Dad on YouTube

It’s more than a little strange to try to explain cable TV to my kids. To them, images on a screen are just the result of whatever app you picked. Those of us of a certain age, however, can remember a time when televisions weren’t flat, when pictures weren’t color, and when antennas and tinfoil were constantly adjusted. To them, there’s no difference between network  [Read More…]
