50 Random Questions

I know last year when I attended Bloggy Bootcamp in Atlanta, they shared that our users need to get to know us better. That is not easy as I am a very shy and private person. However, I do want to open up more and make my readers feel a little closer to me. My goal is for this to be more than just a news site, etc. I want a community and thus I am willing to open up a little. So here are 50 random questions to start off with.

Can Microsoft’s Surface 3 Stand Against the iPad?

surface3

For 20 odd years, Microsoft and Apple has competed with each other, causing varying results with their products. Now that we live in a world where mobile devices rule and sometimes replace desktops or laptops, Microsoft finds itself pitted against Apple’s iPad. For years they have found themselves behind Apple’s innovations with the iPod and iPads. Now they are working hard to fight those with the Surface, as they heavily promote to be more than just a tablet.

Android Wear App Receives Makeover

Android-Wear

Apple better watch out for Android as they prepare for watch wars (sounds like a name of a TLC show). It was announced today that Google released a new app update for their smartwatches that run on Android’s OS, Android Wear.

YouTube Drops Older Device Support

youtube_icon

I recently discovered some shocking news by using my old iPod Touch and the built-in YouTube app (yes, that is how old it is). The service is no longer supporting old iOS devices or any that were build in 2012 and before. The rude awaking was announced without much fanfare thanks to many dropping older technology early on. However, for those like me, I was extremely shocked by this change.

Shame on GoDaddy

I have used GoDaddy for years now for my domain hosting and have been very happy with their services for that. Thus I decided to give their hosting a go thanks to their price and my previous experience. It has been a happy go, until today. I have now decided that I will strongly suggest NOT using their services and will switch to one that has better customer service.  As for why, let me count the ways on how they lost a supporter.

What Kind of Camcorder Should I Buy?

mr2015

Happy New Year! I am aiming for big plans for 2015 and growth in my career(s) this year. Thus I am ready to break out into vlogging or making videos. Here is the catch, I have no clue on what camcorder to get for my videos. I know that I will need to get a lighting kit (can you also recommend one?), but I think I am more worried about picking the right camera. I know no clue as to what kind to pick or what type. I haven’t done too much research on them, so I am hoping for some good pointers.

I am also hoping to expand my range a little here and there, with tidbits of beauty/fashion or other topics of interest (perhaps launching a side blog in the future). I guess really right now I am just waiting to see which direction I should go in. I have goals/dreams, but I need to know what my readers want more of.

So please let me know what you would like to see, as well as your recommendations for a video camera (or camcorder as I think of them as).

Let’s make 2015 the best year yet!

BestTek iPad Mini Case Review: BESTEK® 3 in 1 combo

 

bestek-combo

I was recently contacted by a brand called BestTek for a chance to review their BESTEK® 3 in 1 combo . The product arrived quickly which is always a plus and was well packed. That surprised me since it is a lower price point I assumed slower shipping. Granted, I suppose some would consider it slower when it takes about 3-5 days.

Belkin Routers and Windows 8-Can They Work Together?

BELKIN-VS-WINDOW8

Can Belkin routers play nice with Windows 8 devices?

 

I recently experienced a very hard issue thanks to Windows 8 (8.1) and Belkin Routers. It turns out that Belkin routers have not been updated to run naturally on 8, unlike Windows 7. They were supposed to update their software/drivers last year, but they never did. So I was forced to work at Starbucks while I looked into my issue. At first I thought it was my modem, which was no longer support by Microsoft, which set me back by $80+ dollars to replace. Of course that still didn’t work, causing me to dig deeper only to see Belkin dropped the ball. With no updated drivers or software, it has left many wondering what can they to make it work?

Well, it looks like we have found a solution. Here are the steps that I took to make it work.
