Last month I placed an order on Amazon for the Twelve South HiRise Deluxe for iPhone and when I went to complete the order I opted for next day delivery. Expecting to receive it the following day, I woke up and checked the tracking number only to see that it wasn’t actually going to show up. So what did I do? I waited that day (just in case) and then the following day I emailed Amazon asking for a refund on the shipping (which I did get). Now overall, I was satisfied with the customer service which in the end is all that really [...]
For a start, video games are often present a challenge to players, with a focus on logic and strategy. This combined with the emphasis on improvement [...]
Let me preface this post by saying, I hope this isn’t an indicator of how the Bring ReadWrite Back campaign ultimately goes. Nonetheless, it’s not looking promising at the moment. ReadWrite was founded by Richard MacManus in 2003 (that’s actually the same year I founded BestTechie), he sold the site a few years back to a company called Say Media, and then more recently the site was sold again to Wearable Word (a wearable tech incubator). I’ve always been a fan of ReadWrite but unfortunately it seems there may not [...]
Everyone knows that business meetings are best kept short. In practical terms, this means getting down to the nitty-gritty of the deal. This, however, is easier said than done—it can take quite a while to get past the introductions and the initial small talk with a potential client or investor.
As human beings, we are social animals who are naturally engineered to know someone before entrusting them with something valuable, and even so, clicking with the person or group of people that you’re meeting is [...]
You probably wondered what it would have been like if Steve Jobs was still around to introduce the Apple Watch. Well, at least, I have. Regardless of whether or not it’s something you have thought about, one YouTuber going by the name John Appleseed (a tribute, no doubt, to when the original iPhone launched), created a video using promotional Apple Watch footage along with a collection of Steve Jobs audio clips taken from previous Apple special events.
The end result? An Apple Watch introduction by Steve Jobs. I’m [...]
In a post on Business Insider, Nicholas Carlson sounds the alarm stating that Facebook has caught up to and is poised to surpass YouTube in terms of daily video views. He cites an article written by Fortune’s Erin Griffith (which is a very good read, I recommend checking it out — it’s in-depth and detailed) that discusses Facebook’s huge investment in video as his main piece of evidence. In Griffith’s article she writes, “In April, Facebook hit 4 billion views per day, matching the latest estimates [...]
So you’ve got a new phone. And you love it more than anything else in the whole world.
That’s what it’s like with new phones, right? They are things of great beauty and perfection that you want to stand on a plinth, surrounded by cushions, in a temperature-controlled room protected by security guards with lasers, accessible only by your fair hands.
In short, when you get a new phone, you want to look after it, in order to keep it in that brand new condition, help it to perform at its best [...]
If you are using iOS 8 it’s fairly easy to see which apps you use the most on your iPhone. In fact, you can break down the usage for the past 24 hours and also the past 7 days. Here’s how to see which apps you use most on iOS.
Go to Settings > General > Usage > Battery Usage
Before I go any further, I should note that this doesn’t show actual app usage, but rather how much battery a particular app used. Obviously, the thought process here is that apps you use more will use more battery. If you [...]
