Star Trek Timelines | Reached Endgame

Dusting off this old post from April 2020! I had started to write this up back then, but then it got stuck in my drafts.  Anywho...here's another game that I've reached the end-game! huzzah! (sarcasm).So, what is Star Trek Timelines?  Star Trek Timelines is a mobile free-to-play game that takes place in the Star Trek Universe. I first started playing this on my old iPad 2 (back when that

Assassin's Creed Rebellion | Endgame Reached

One of the games that I've been playing periodically while watching TV, is Assassin's Creed Rebellion. The game is a mobile strategy RPG with all the regular fixings of a free-to-play game: a limited in-game currency that you use to play missions. The currency replenishes at fixed time intervals, or you can pay to get more of it ahead of the full replenishment time.The game draws from the story of

Nostalgia sells...and it's expensive!

As I was browsing my RSS feeds the other day I saw that Motorola has a new RAZR phone coming out.  I still have my old RAZR 3G in a drawer somewhere as a backup phone in case my smartphones die 😁 (wonder if the battery is still any good).  The original RAZR phone was an insane $500 (if memory serves me right) for a "dumb" phone that was network-locked.  This is at a time when I could

MIcrosoft Surface Duo

It seems like the idea behind the folding screen device isn't dead yet. Last week microsoft announced a few new devices, including a folding android-based device (which they claim is not a phone, but it is most clearly a phone).  It reminds me a lot of the knowledge navigator concept that Apple put together all those years ago (you know, when Apple was sort of out there and tried new things).

A little farther now from .Mac...

At first there was iTools.  Then there was dotMac (.Mac), then there was MobileMe, and now there is iCloud. I think this particular service was what I first used as paid web-hosting, and as a Mac user both at work and as school (before always-connected phones), I used mail, calendar, contact and bookmark sync for everything.  As I slowly moved from an iPhone/iPad ecosystem to Android, so

Screen Cleaner by Google Files

This April Fool's joke is from Google proper.  While it's intended as humor...I could see self-cleaning glass in our future!

Duoling Push

Another of my favorite April Fool's fake announcements from this year's crop of April Fool's Jokes, the persistent, real life, owl notification that keeps pestering you to practice your language skills on Duolingo ;-)

Assassin's Creed Unity - Mobile Companion | Done

LOL, I am not sure why I am writing about the mobile companion app...but I am (so...deal with it? :p).  Anyway, yesterday the final side-mission of the companion app cleared and I got all my little lovely check marks across the map of Paris.   In this companion app you recruit Assassins from across Paris, and as you send them away on missions to control different locations in Paris

A short review of prepaid through Orange Spain

As is customary for me, when I travel abroad for an extended period of time I tend to get a local SIM card to put into my phone, so I can have a local number, some local SMS, and more importantly data!  It makes it easier to communicate with the locals and verify AirBnB information.  Luckily, in recent years, T-Mobile allows for free 2G (GPRS) data roaming, which made things a little less

Back to a modern smartphone

As much as I liked the Nokia N8, I needed to get back to using a more modern smartphone for my day to day work.  I decided that waiting some more time for motorola (or Google) to release new flagship products would take a long time, and the few merits of the N8 wouldn't warrant waiting that long for the next android device.Symbian Belle Refresh OSSo,  what did I like about the N8 and Symbian
