Finally, a Really Nice Phone Case

I think I found the first phone case for my Samsung Galaxy S6 that I actually like. And only $9 on Amazon.

Predicting Google Android Updates & Upgrades

I've been a Google user for more years than I care to count. I've used their online services (Gmail, Calendar, Contacts, Docs, etc.) for a very long time. When Google got into the mobile business with Android, I was one of its first adopters. Since its inception, my wife and I have owned ten Android devices, starting with the humble T-Mobile “MyTouch 3G,” and then the Samsung Galaxy S1, followed-by the Galaxy S3, and most recently, the Galaxy S5. And we have a couple of matching tablets -- Nexus 7 2013 WiFi. Every single time, we've bought exactly the same device, at exactly the same moment, from exactly the same retailer. We even use them with back-to-back Google (Gmail) accounts we created together years ago. I guess my wife trusts me :-) But, I digress.

It's Not Supposed to be This Hot in San Diego

When we moved to San Diego in 2001 (it was my second time here, and my wife's first), one of the things we loved was the climate... Never too cool, never too hot, and rarely uncomfortable humidly (compared with the Midwest).

This year seems to have been an exception.

As I type this, the temperature has topped 100 degrees!

To make matters worse, we only had a few days of relief since "monsoonal moisture" from hurricanes Odie, Polo, and Norbert slammed Baja last month, making this feel like a Louisiana swamp.

My (Flipboard) Google Magazine is Now Public

It started-out as nothing more than a way for me to curate "All Things Google" for my own use, and I had no idea so many others would find it beneficial, as well.

If you're a Google watcher (or, just like to keep-up with what's new for consumers on the Google front), feel free to subscribe to my curated magazine on Flipboard.

I add to the collection (almost) every day, and whether you're interested in Android, Chrome, Chromebook, Google Apps, or any other Google services, I hope you'll find something that interests you.

It goes without saying, if you have any comments or suggestions, please don't hesitate to shoot me a note (using "CONTACT ME" on the right).

Digitizing & Preserving Old Audio Cassette Tapes

In my quest to store all of my life (and memories) in the cloud, one of the last things left for me to tackle was my box of old audio cassette tapes.
