Let’s be PokemonGo Friends!

Sunday, July 1, 2018

Well, Niantic FINALLY added Friends and trading to PokemonGo, and while at this point most long-term players may have met a few friends at Legendary Raids and such, you can never have too many friends!

So if you’re looking for PokemonGo friends, feel free to leave a comment below with your friend code, and let’s see if we can’t hook...

HOW TO: Stop your iPhone 7 / 7 Plus’s screen from vibrating when playing audio

Monday, October 3, 2016

I’m not going to go into how underwhelmed I’ve been with iOS 10 and the iPhone 7 Plus here, but let’s just say among the more annoying “features” of the latest round of Apple updates is the incredibly annoying vibration of the screen when playing music out of the iPhone’s speakers. You may recall one of the few selling points of the iPhone 7 and 7 plus is the enhanced “stereo” speakers on the device. Unfortunately, with great volume comes great vibration, and it just feels...

How To: Get rid of Safari’s Spinning Beach Ball

Tuesday, December 15, 2015

There’s dozens of reasons as to why you might be getting a spinning beach ball when visiting certain web pages in Safari, and there are also dozens of solutions you COULD try. I know this because I tried them all while trying to figure out why web pages in general, but Yahoo’s Pro Football Pick ’em and Amazon.com in particular, were giving me more beachballs than a British Rock Festival. Here’s what I did to solve MY problem: With Safari open, go to the top of your screen and click the word SAFARI Choose...

Review: flatOUT™ LED Lightning by Scosche (That’s right, I’m going to review a lightning cable.)

Scosche flatOUT Lightning cable

If you’ve been a loyal Apple supporter/upgrader, odds are by now you have probably owned 4-5 Apple devices that utilize a Lightning cable to charge.
