“Travelling With Your Phone This Summer”

In response to a comment on the video “Travelling With Your Phone This Summer”

The COMMENT was:
“Great! could you also talk about cell phone usage abroad and especially electrical converters and charging? I travel or support those who do and it gets dicey. The converter and adapter throws people, changing sims, which carrier and costs. I usually advise skype but that’s not for everyone. Explaining GSM, CDMA and whatever the Japan uses and my audience just turns glassy eyed.  Thanks! Keep up the good work.”

BlackBerry Apps for the Basic User – Part 1

“From the Fence with JP”

I am sure there are people out there (and hopefully I am not the only one) that are NOT heavy duty power users with their BlackBerry.
They wanted a phone to be a phone, and add in the email capability, maybe some web browsing, and there ya go.
Yes I know that the smartphones now do that without breaking a sweat and so much more. But for some people the so much more is not needed or wanted for a variety of reasons.
On top of all this – you add in the thousands and thousands of Apps that are available and suddenly the phone you wanted to just be a phone – is now a huge chore. [Read more…]

How to Make Folders for Your Apps for iPad

De-clutter Your iPad Apps!

So you have an iPad do you, or perhaps the iPad2? And you have been a maniac downloading all the Apps that you may or may not use!

Have a look at your iPad – go ahead! Chances are you see a whole bunch of Apps without much organization just on your first page.  There is also a chance that many of  these Apps are the ones you use most often.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you knew exactly where to find any App on your iPad at the drop of a hat? [Read more…]
