154: Don't forget about Bill Gates

10/19/2018
More
Perhaps the greatest philanthropist to ever live, Bill Gates is often overlooked by the likes of other technological greats, who've given us smartphones, search and online shopping and while they are ALL great in their own right, we should'nt turn a blind eye to those giving back to the community and not just expecting our data or money.

152: It's time for Chrome OS to replace Android

10/12/2018
More
All good things should come to an end...and Android is that thing. Chrome OS is a mobile operating system cable of running Chrome, Android apps, Linux app and potentially Windows apps in the future. Why are we still pushing Android, which is marred by a lack of updates and continuity between these awful device manufacturers when we can ALL be updated, secure and feature rich -- something that Google's Chrome OS can offer. || Let's continue our discussion!

147: Close the #ChargeGate

10/4/2018
More
With every new iPhone there is bound to be a reported issue. Don't let Apple apologist sites fool you into thinking that issues are not real just because they are sensationalized online. With that being said, new iPhone X and XS owners have reported charging issues if the phone is sleep while attaching it to the cable, which works fine if the device is woke during the process, iOS 12.1, which is currently in beta, aims to fix that along with a few new emoji. || Let's continue our discussion!...

146: Shallow dive into the DARK WEB

10/1/2018
More
I occasionally get asked, "What is the dark web?" While many things that you hear about it are true, not everything that's on it or everyone visiting pages on it are necessarily bad. In short if the page you want to visit is unindexed and unsearchable it's dark and can only be reached using special software, it's safe to assume it's "dark". || Let's continue our discussion!

144: Privacy implications in latest Google Chrome update!!

9/26/2018
More
Google Chrome is the world's leading web browser; however, in it's latest update if you ever decide to use a Google IP, you'll automatically be signed into Chrome, which some users do not want. You should be able to have a CHOICE of whether or not you'd want to be signed into the browser or not since being signed in adds to the amount of data that Google can collect about you and your account. || Let's continue our discussion!

139: Is Siri Shortcuts NOT for the Average Joe?

9/19/2018
More
Apple bought the Workflow app a little over a year ago because of all of the automations that could be sequenced together and create powerful workflows. That is now now as Shortcuts and is integrated directly into iOS AND Siri. But how discoverable are these neat little nuggets and how easy or difficult are they to construct? It seems that this automation platform is for the power user and not for the Average Joe, which will leave the gap left by Siri being subpar...left WIDE open. || Let's...

How dumb and how unapologetic will these internet laws become. With short-sighted law after short-sighted law being introduced by people, who don't understand the technology that they are attempting to govern. Big companies are so terrified of things that users post, they want to tell, "copyright" at anything that resembles a copyrighted work, regardless of the context that it was posted.
