As it turns out, digital art isn’t just for fancy-pants productions anymore…
If you’ve ever done some drawing, oil painting, cave painting, or whatever, you really might like digital art.
It just so happens that there are some very powerful and very inexpensive digital art gizmos available now that can do a whole lot more than you might think…
Tethering is when you connect your smartphone or tablet to your puter, and then use your mobile device’s data connection to surf the internet on your puter.
Well, to put it another way: your puter uses your smartphone (or your tablet’s 4G connection) as its internet connection instead of your normal DSL, cable, fiber, etc.
Tethering can be done in several ways, and it’s much easier to set up than you think!
If you’ve read any reviews recently about phones, tablets, and other gizmos, you’ve probably come across a lot of talk of PPI (Pixels Per Inch) and “Retina” screens.
In short, the number of pixels crammed into a device’s screen seems to be uber-important to which gizmos get the best reviews.
But hang on a minute… Just what do these numbers mean?
Does it really matter that much?
On the other hand, 4K content hasn’t really hit the mainstream yet. In fact, it hardly exists at all.
We do have plenty of new TVs and Blu-ray players that have “4K” printed on them, though.
So what is this magical new format? What is 4K? What is UHD? More importantly, should you care?
Try different remedies, some of them work for awhile, some of them don’t…
Every year, it’s the same old thing.
Not anymore! There’s a “new” insect bite treatment in town that really works.
Lithium-ion batteries, often abbreviated as Li-ion, are extremely common these days.
But what about so-called Lithium Polymer batteries, also called LiPo or Li-poly batteries? Are they really better?
If you believe the marketing folks, yes they are. But, as it turns out, you’ve been fooled just like me!
You expect to enjoy a glorious movie-watching experience, but instead, your movies look like TV shows or soap operas.
As it turns out, the problem is your fancy new TV. Get ready for this: it’s too realistic, and your brain doesn’t like that.
Read on to find out how to fix it!
Let’s say you get a new phone or tablet, and both are running Android. You’d like to copy everything from your old device to your new one. How do you do it?
Well, certainly there are more hardcore methods of migrating all your data. Most of these methods require “rooting” your device, and are probably a bit too involved for most people.
Of course, if you back everything up on the Google Cloud, so to speak, most things will easily transfer from one gizmo to another.
But, not everybody likes Big Brother storing everything and synchronizing it automagically. I certainly don’t!
The easiest option I have found is one you have to pay for – but at only a few dollars, it’s a fabulous deal…
From the general recognition (finally) that the US government was spying on everyone, everyone’s dog, and everyone’s dog’s lawn presents, to the almighty Mobile Revolution, to the 64-bit iPhone with 2X the awesome, to the complete abortion that is Windows 8/8.1…
Yes, it was a year to remember in the tech world.
Pay no attention to all those fireballs everyone was talking about.
As 2014 rolls in, I thought I would take a brief, syrupy-sweet and fluffy look at The State of Technology.
