Resetting Router

Lately over the past few days it has been suggested that you reset your routers at home. I see no reason to not do that, and in fact suggest you do. Its painless and will perhaps prevent trouble in the future. Its one of those things that we probably should do more often. Its kind of like shutting down the computer once in awhile or at least giving it a re-start. Clearing the cache too is another, although try to keep the part of saving the passwords which we all hate to retype..or rather remember.

Smartphone Stats and More

Who owns cellphones compared to smartphones is the subject of this article. The article goes further into the demographics of age, income, education and more.

Also remember the days of needing to install any special font for the users to see. That’s also when systems began the blout as they came with new upgrades. Quite an interesting history and fun topic.

Apple Maps v Google Maps

I for one have both on my iPhone. Each has its annoying attributes. I am beginning to favor one over the other, but cannot bring myself to deleting the least favorite as all of a sudden an ad or something will make the one unuseable and jump to the other, after all ALL I WANT IS DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO GET SOMEWHERE!!

That all said CNet has listed a few things Apple Maps can do, Google cannot…for now. I haven’t tried them all out, some I could care less like the Lyft option. I’ll let you know if the ‘feature’ comes up. Usually I am in the car and just want, as I said, HOW THE HELL DO I GET THERE!!
