The T-Mobile and Sprint merger is done and nothing good will come of it

We now have less choice when it comes to wireless providers and there isn’t even a madman in charge to entertain us.

T-Mobile and Sprint are now one, at least on paper. You might have seen the news about it, along with T-Mobile CEO John Legere stepping down to do … something and former T-Mobile COO Mike Seivert will now lead the new company that looks and feels strangely like the two old companies — a thing  [Read More…]

How Microsoft is making sure dual-screen apps are done right

Microsoft is treating dual-screen devices the way they need to be treated — as a new platform.

Foldables and other dual-display extra-large phone screens are already a thing. The Galaxy Fold may not have sold millions and millions of units, but after some changes were made to the initial design, the people invested in it love the thing. Motorola is slated to release one very soon. LG has something very similar with the LG G8X. And Microsoft  [Read More…]

Testing face recognition on dark skin isn’t a bad thing when done right

No matter how you approach it, the subject is going to be a touchy one. Being deceitful and dumb about how you do it isn’t helping here, Google.

It’s no secret that using any sort of software that does more than a cursory “look” at people has issues when used by a person of color. Microsoft had issues with the Kinect and even a simple heart-rate sensor on your smartwatch can struggle here. Google is trying to  [Read More…]

Why I’m glad Google’s done with dessert names for Android

Let’s face it — this was bound to happen sooner or later.

Ever since the release of Android 1.5 Cupcake back in 2009, every subsequent update for the OS has had a tasty dessert name to go along with its numerical position — some of my favorites being Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, Pie, and the classic Froyo.

These dessert names have been a staple of the Android brand for nearly a decade, and leading up to  [Read More…]

ADP Mobile review: How a benefits app should be done

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…]
