People often set the bar too high for this New Years resolution thing. As a result, I am going to be striving for mediocrity this year. Here we go #1 I recently learned that after 30 years of typing, one degree in English, and a dissertation under my belt, that it is no longer []

I have recently taken up watching Dowton Abbey.  If you had told me a month ago I would be addicted to a show about fancypants rich English people and their servants and their weird alien-like customs, I would have heartily guffawed in your face whilst swigging my tea.  But it sucked me in, and Ive [...]

Samsung Galaxy S3 Tips: S Voice

content discovered on Sunday, July 15, 2012 in gadgets general phones samsung galaxy s3 verizon

I smell a conspiracy.  S Voice sort-of worked when I first got my GS3 a week or so ago.  Now, all it will do is open Pandora.  I have the suspicion that the features have been quietly disabled due to Apples whining about Siri. For example, the first day I had the GS3 I asked [...]
