Hello Moto!

So last weekend, I discovered that my Note 2 stopped working. And by that, I mean it was no longer taking calls or text messages. Now, while I appreciate it knowing when I don’t want to be bothered, it should be taking phone calls from me when I call it. But alas it did not. Read the rest of this entry

Taking Notes on the Go

So you’ll remember last year, I traded my little Galaxy Nexus 3 for a Galaxy Note II, with the intention of eliminating the need for a tablet. I’m happy to announce I can actually use said phone for the purpose of…well, said phone. The point of getting a Note II (and one day, mostly likely the Note 4) was to take notes without needing to constantly carry around a notebook or laptop. Read the rest of this entry

Windows 8/8.1/10 Apps for Your Freelancer

Welcome to 2015, fans! If you’ll remember from our last time together, we looked at some gifts to get the freelancer in your life (or yourself if you were good last year) and I talked a little about my super buy of a Windows 8.1 laptop. And in today’s post, I’m combining both of them. Read the rest of this entry

Ahoy hoy! The countdown is almost over – only three more days until Christmas! And if you’re still trying to find that gift for your freelancer (or yourself), I am here to help!

A Windows 8.1 Review & How About that Windows 10?

Lo readers! Welcome back, post Thanksgiving holiday and welcome to December! I now give you permission to start listening to Christmas music and watching those Christmas specials you love and enjoy! And with our entry into December, it’s time for punch, pie, and presents! Oh yeah! So last week I mentioned that I got a pretty good deal on a little cheapy laptop during Black Friday; seeing as many of you will either be gifting or getting your freelancer some sort of computer or tablet (fingers crossed!), chances are you’re going to get some sort of equipment that has Windows 8 or 8.1 on it. Seeing as I’m also with a Windows 8.1 laptop, here’s a little bit about that! Read the rest of this entry

In A Galaxy…Near You…Came a Phone!

People of my blog!

Okay, first – I’m sorry. I am, really. You know how real life gets me and I have to do that and then come back here, but more on that later. Important, awesome news, which actually does relate to that series I started back in December. So, if you’ll remember, I was doing a list of some of the best gifts you should consider when thinking about your freelancer. Well, as of this post, let’s just consider this the start of our phone and app section, yes? Read the rest of this entry

Best Gifts for Freelancers – Fun Times

As a side to my earlier side, I’ve been having some awesome times with my new monitor. There’s something about a 24 inch in comparison to the 19 inch that I had and it’s awesome. From a freelancer and work point of the view, the ability to have two items side by side is great; I could do it with the other monitor, but it was much smaller and many times I ended up just not doing work that way. Bigger screen, better ability.

But I haven’t been using this monitor just for work. Oh no, no no. LOL Read the rest of this entry
