We continue with the Fossil Q Explorist developing review with a summary of the Installation and Setup for the FTW4004. I don’t have any modern iOS devices, so I can only pair it with Androids.
To do this, you need:
Movies Anywhere is a step in the right direction for consumers but certainly not the end of the road in terms of needed improvements. It is a better way of doing things than Ultraviolet, which felt more like a half-hearted attempt from the beginning.
Movies Anywhere is the expansion of Disney’s own “Disney Anywhere” service to include movies from a handful of other movie studios, and to connect your unified library to all participating services. It is free to use and you don’t get any ads or previews (like the DVDs) while watching the movies.
In this new series of “Bug Reports”, we point out issues with today’s apps, hardware and software. Today’s subject is the Tasker Android app (Google PLAY). On Nougat (Android 7.0), the app refuses to release the “Phone” permission. I turn it off, and whenever I go back into the settings, it’s back on again!
Not sure what’s going on here. It’s the first time I’ve seen an app refuse to relinquish an Android permission. Even Google’s own data hungry apps obey the permission denials 🙂
I will post updates here if I find an answer or if it gets solved with future updates…
This [the Fossil Q Explorist FTW4004] is my first smartwatch and only recently I discovered the whole kerfuffle with “flat tires” on smartwatches. Since this is an important aspect to a number of smartwatch fans, I wanted to post a quick update for anyone interested or curious or worried about it.
I’m happy to note that this smartwatch does not have a flat tire! I’ve been playing it for about 24 hours already, and have pictorial evidence for you right below.
WE have a new unboxing post for you, a practical text and pictures style, so don’t worry, no annoying video and audio 🙂 It is our first adventure in the land of smartwatches, the brand new Fossil Q Explorist FTW4004, an Android Wear 2.0 model in the brown color scheme!
Google changed Android with Nougat (7.0) making much harder for existing “Task Manager” style apps to work on an un-rooted phone. However, hope is not lost. It turns out, some of the app manager apps work partially…
By partially I mean they work with some apps, but not all Android apps. For example, most of Google’s apps appear in the list of running apps, but other popular apps can be killed this way.
This is our sixth Nexus 6 case review, and I think that’s the last one I have at the moment! So unless I find another one hiding or buy another one, I will then do a group review summarizing and contrasting them all.
Today’s review is the CaseMate Naked Tough Bumper Case and surprise-surprise it is still available and at a reasonable price, $6 and Prime-eligible at amazon.com. And not an Add-On item to boot 🙂
We take a break from the cases with a review of a more general use item. It is the Staples Pencil Stylus. I picked it up on sale at their local B&M stores. As the name truthfully suggests, this is indeed styled like an actual pencil. But it’s only a stylus. There’s no eraser, no ink, no writing tip.
We now continue our Nexus 6 Case review series with the Cruzerlite Bugdroid case in the orange-pumpkin color scheme. I purchased this online with my own money. This has proven to be head to head with the Spigen Thin Fit as my favorite case so far. I say so far, because as long as the phone works, and as long as there are internet sales, I will keep on trying new cases. Because it’s cheaper to buy a new phone case than to buy a new phone 🙂
