FYI on the ASUS ZenFone2 battery charger   4 comments

Pssst…..My original review of the ZenFone 2 is at


ZenFone 2 review at Small Business Trends – click here

____________________

FYI: The following is just what I do. It’s not meant to be official advice. Use your own discretion if you’re buying the $299 ASUS ZenFone 2 and/or contacting them with your own questions/concerns

ASUS says not to be concerned if you feel the special charger is too warm. I did a 40-minute test and the hot temperature of the charger made me contact ASUS with a sense of urgency. I told them I wouldn’t charge the ZenFone2 overnight, unattended. They responded saying it’s intentional.

Although the battery charger does get hot (and ASUS is aware of this), if the product senses you’ve got a low battery, while the charger stays in the wall and your battery fills, the charger “knows” to draw less power, just not at first, if your battery’s low. So it’s the speed charging feature responsible for making the charger hot in the beginning.

Then after awhile you can actually touch the charger and it’ll feel normal. Again, the longer it stays in the wall, the more it knows to return to normal.

So, to see if what ASUS was saying was right, I did a 91-minute test and ASUS’s response proved accurate because after that test, I forgot about the test for a good hour after it was over – The good news is, the charger didn’t even feel warm. But do a 40-minute test like I did, on a low battery and you’ll probably notice the charger is hot to the touch.

So for me, all’s good in the hood. I think the phone will be a hit with people who travel. At $299 unlocked, dual SIM card slots, etc, well, where can you get that? For most, the ZenFone 2 will be a solid investment. I haven’t tried the camera or cam yet, but I will.

Important: The speed charger is only given to you for free if you buy the $299 model of the ZenFone 2, not the lower-priced one.

LG trolls Samsung for not bringing the Note 5 to Europe   Leave a comment

Alex Yong:

In advertising, mostly anything’s fair game. Even bashing the competition, which is a tactic I’ve never been fond of.

Ah Samsung; a week ago, the company?s biggest decision of the past few months was met with some interesting responses from customers as the Korean manufacturer decided not to bring its latest Galaxy Note 5 smartphone to Europe. Whether this works out to be a wise decision in the long run is unknown but as far LG is concerned, this is a priceless marketing opportunity that it can?t give up.

Getting familiar with Periscope on Android   1 comment

This will be the first year the world has had a summer with Periscope!

Periscope example

The hearts floating upward on the screen are pretty much like “likes” on Facebook, well, sort of. They’re given by viewers. From what I understand, the hearts are credited to your profile and the more hearts you have on your profile, the better your chances of appearing up top whenever you broadcast. In theory, the closer you are to the top, the more views you’ll get because folks aren’t into scrolling down too far. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

And of course questions and typos to make you smile

The number in the bottom right corner indicates how many viewers are in the room, but I’ve noticed it’s not always 100% accurate.

Customs VS Pre-builts VS All-in-one VS Laptop: PC Forms Battle Royale   5 comments

Deciding which form of computers to go for has always been one of the biggest questions for a PC user, and is also a question I’d like to give my opinion on as fast as possible. Thus, today I decided to write this blog post to discuss the pros and cons of each form, in my point of view.

Custom PCs – Personal Powerhouses


Yukipishi Frontal Shot

Custom PCs are the top choice for any serious computer user, since it’s very personal, often offers you better specs for lower prices, and it also has a lot of room for customization and upgrade. However, there are certain things that will still drive users away from custom PCs.

Pros:

  • It’s unique and personal: Once you build a custom PC, it’s entirely yours and there’s nothing like it. You’ll know it in and out, and you can name it, decorate it, etc. however you want. Most…

FCC votes to use cell phone taxes to help the poor access broadband Internet   Leave a comment

One of the programs under the USF, known as “Lifeline,” has historically helped the millions of Americans who qualify for Food Stamps and Medicaid pay for their cell phone services, receiving $9.25 a month in subsidies.
