Did you know…?

Did you know that data collected by a screen-lock app says that the average person unlocks their phone an average of 110 times a day? This study found that some people unlock their phone up to 900 times.



My phone can do what?

This week we wanted to highlight a security feature that can be used on your Android phone.


When was the last time that you lost your phone and it was locked? The person who found it wasn’t be able to get into your phone and dial your last call, so your phone has now been left at the mercy of other people.


Don’t let this happening to you! With your Android phone you are able to display your contact information on the lock screen by going to settings Security> Screen security> Owner info. You will be able to add your name, email address, phone number or other information to appear on your lock screen, so you and your phone can be reunited!



Did you know…?

Did you know that Facebook has 1.49 billion monthly active users? If that was a country, Facebook would be the world’s most populous country.



My phone can do what?

For the month of October, we would like to show case some of the neat things that we have found that iPhones and Android phones can do. Every week we will highlight a feature that we find useful.

This week we wanted to tell you about how you could teach Siri new words. When she pronounces something wrong, just say, “That’s not how you pronounce [Blank]” or “That’s not how you pronounce the name [Blank]” and she will give you alternatives and you will be able to select the best pronunciations.




Old Technology, New Uses

I don’t know about you, but I eat a lot of bread. There is nothing better than going to the store and picking out a loaf that is fresh! However, it’s not always easy to tell when the bread you are picking out was baked.  Now know when the bread was baked with the picture below.


Then after you get home you have bread clips that seem worthless after eating your loaf of bread. Re purpose them! Now not only know when your bread was baked, but have use for those clips!




Track that Package!

This post will conclude the Google Search tips of the month.  As someone who mails a lot of packages with tracking, I did not know this. So to me, this one is pretty cool! You can put your tracking number straight into the Google Search bar and Google is able to track your UPS, USPS, or FedEx package. You only need to know the tracking number and which company is shipping your package.25

Tune in next month for ways to better your phone!

Old Technology, New Uses

I know at my place, I have drawer full of cords that I am saving just in case I need to replace one. Here is a neat way of keeping all those cords in order. All that is required are some empty rolls of toilet paper or paper towel rolls!
