Late last year I received an Apple Watch as a Christmas gift from my father. At the time I was planning on switching back to Android, but having received the Apple Watch I was pretty much stuck with the iPhone. I couldn’t simply sell the watch even if I sold it at retail price because it has sentimental value. Regardless of the fact that I never wanted or needed an Apple Watch, selling it would make me feel bad because my father had bought it for me. And for that reason, when my contract ended I decided to upgrade to the iPhone SE (all of the reasons are explained in my review) in order to continue using the Apple Watch. All that being said, I still find myself using countless Google apps and envying Android users who have better Google apps in addition to the customization options. Continue reading “I miss Android”

However, with the launch of a new TV streaming service, the company is certainly bound to attract a host of new customers who may have not been interested in YouTube Red and gain other cord cutters may be in search of a replacement.

My Gripe With Batteries

Amidst all the latest technology in our smartphones and tablets, one of the key areas that have not changed much is in regards to battery technology. The thing that keeps our devices up and running is the very thing that hasn’t improved much. The only reason our phones last as long as they do is because they either have battery efficient software or our devices have a bigger battery installed. However, my gripe with this is that the battery itself is still for the most part unchanged.
