Samsung Note 7

Nice Note 7

I for one like many of you out there really always liked the Samsung Note phones. I have never owned one but that is because my wife and I are in the Apple ecosystem and have been for years. I did try my hand at a Windows phone once but that only lasted about a week before I returned it and got a new iPhone. But the Samsung Note line has been great and I know a lot of people who still use them everyday. But now the company is in trouble. I really don’t think this is any wrong doing by Samsung. Let’s face it they don’t want all of this bad press. What everyone should be asking is where was this phone made? We all know that these electronic companies are not building these gadgets in the USA in their own factories. This might be traced back to someone in some far off land putting these together with some oil on their fingers? Would I say run out and buy a new Note 7 anyway? NO, but I am saying don’t kill a entire company because of a mishap until we get all the facts. Was this a design flaw? Are they trying to get more power out of the internal battery? Is there something wrong with the charger? I always feel bad for any company that gets hit with one bad product and it starts to make everyone fearful of their products. I hope that Samsung pulls out of this downfall. Remember I said in the beginning of this post that we are iPhone people but I think every company needs computation. Next thing to watch is that law suit because Samsung phones icons look like Apples. This is funny because my car tires looks likes yours and I bet that they came from two different companies?

Cell Phone Gaming

It amazes me how many kids of all ages I see playing on their parents cell phones. Did you ever wonder who that two or three year old might be calling? Grandma or grand pap maybe?

Not at all, the kids are being entertained with games on the cell phone. These games are normally placed there by the mother who knows how to keep her children calm and relaxed.

I have to admit I have Flappy Bird on my iPhone. I have found when I am at a doctors office or sometimes just sitting in the recliner I like to smash into some pipes every once in awhile.

The really sad part about this is that the hand held gaming devices are becoming less of a desire for the youths today. Even if the kids don’t have a cell phone to play on you will find them carrying an iPod touch. Which is really just a cell phone without the cell radio part build into them.

Kids are growing up in a much different world and time then when I grew up. I think I heard that same statement coming from my dad when I was young. When my friend and I was sitting in front of a TV watching a little speck of light bouncing back and forth across the screen. Or shooting alien invaders until our fingers felt like they were going to fall off of our hands.

I often sit around and wonder what the next big thing will be for the gaming industry?

Smart Phone Upgrade

I know the title to this post seems like it could be from long ago. But the truth of the matter is my wife is finally upgrading to a shinny new smart phone. She will be getting the iPhone 5C Green 32 GB model.

So why did she wait so long? Smart phones have been on the market for years. Well she is not a touch screen type of girl. She has have a small phone with a button keyboard that slides out. And she has had this phone for about six years.

Now that the battery only lasts about twenty minutes she is fat up with the old phone. Did you ever go to the local cell phone store and look for an old phone? They make about three of them and they all have bad, yes really bad reviews. So she played with my iPhone and said she will just have to get use to using one. I am already thinking of all the great way we can now communicate. We could face time and now use iMessaging.

I wonder why the smart phones need to cost $10.00 more a month? It is still the same service. I guess it has to do with paying for the phone? I will have to get a pic of her using the new phone and share with all of you.

Which phone do you have and tell me a little about your cell phones and how your carriers are holding up.

Happy With Your Cell Service?

I was reading Consumer Reports and came across a article talking about cell phone services. This is one of those monthly bills that no one really likes but it seems everyone has one. And it seems we pay a lot of money for our trusty cell phones.

Most of us myself included have been with the same cell phone provider for years. I think looking back I have been with Verizon for over twenty five years. Even if we have bad service at times it seems we still stick with the same companies.

Reading about price it looks like the best deal is the pre paid plans. All of the services provide some kind of pre paid plans. What is nice about these plans is that you can not go over your set minutes or data. It did say in the article that the very best plan is the family plans. I switched to one of these plans two years ago and I have been paying more ever since.

In the end the truth is; the cell phone companies are getting your money and they don’t care how they get it. In all my life I have never seen such a rip off. Come on $30.00 a month for Internet per phone! I pay $50.00 for Internet in our house and I can have as many devices as I want on my wireless. But as long as we pay, they will continue to screw us over. And why not?

Are you happy with your cell phone service? Have you ever been with another service to compare the one you have to? In the end cell phones are just like any other habit. I have found myself returning home just because I forgot you pick up my cell phone from the kitchen table.
