No Headphone Jack? No Problem. Turn any headphones into Bluetooth headphones.

There’s a lot of conversations about Apple removing the headphone jack in the iPhone 7 and for good reason. There’s a lot of good corded headphones out there and a good set of Bluetooth headphones can be expensive. The good news is that you can turn your corded headphones into Bluetooth headphones with an inexpensive adapter. […]

Apple’s Low Power Mode in iOS 9 is Amazing

Apple has a Low Power Mode in iOS 9 and it’s fantastic. It temporary reduces your phones power consumption when enabled. It won’t check for new mail, disables background app refresh, disables automatic downloads, and reduces some visual effects. Not only will it save your battery, but it’ll also charge your phone faster. To enable […]

From Verizon to T-Mobile – My Review

We’ve been on T-Mobile for a few months now and I have to say that we’re pretty happy. Sure, T-Mobile isn’t the perfect carrier, but then again, all carriers have their flaws. Price The first thing we love is the price. T-Mobile is quite a bit less than Verizon. The amount of money we’re saving […]

How To Mass Delete iOS Music

I’ve got iTunes Match turned on and every now and then I want to remove a bunch of music from my iPhone. I’m not talking about what’s in iCloud, but what’s been downloaded onto my phone. Most places say that you can only do it one song at a time. I’ve been there, spending hours trying […]

Can you switch from Verizon to T-Mobile and keep your iPhone?

We’ve been customers with Verizon for a long time but are thinking of moving to T-Mobile where we can get unlimited everything for quite a bit less a month. The only issue is that we want to take our phones (iPhone 5 & 4s) with us and I’m not getting clear answers to if they’d […]

Connect your iPhone to your Mac to make calls. Pre Yosemite.

It’s time to unfollow, unfriend, and simplify.

I love social media, email, apps, and all the wonderful things on the internet, but I also love my offline projects, nature, and my family. Lately I feel I’ve gotten stuck in my phone and it’s time to get out. Time to change the focus and spend more time on other things. On things that […]

Spice up Safari, Evernote, iTunes, Finder & more with emoji icons.

Since 10.8 Apple has had emoji icons built into the OS. Until recently, I used these for Twitter and IM, but not much else. Turns out, they’re actually really handy other places too. In Evernote I use them to easily identify some of my notes. In calendar, I can add palm trees to my vacation. […]

Google Hangouts no longer sucks on iOS.

Google Hangouts 2 for iOS finally fixes the app and makes it usable again. No more swearing at the app while you wait for messages to appear. A while back I wrote about how bad Google Hangouts is. Great idea, bad execution. One of my points was about how the iOS app is horribly slow. Well, now we can […]

When you run out of Dropbox space, try Copy. A great alternative.

I have Dropbox and I love it. It’s my goto for storing and syncing files to the cloud. Even though I’ve been able to rack up some additional free space on Dropbox, it’s still pretty lacking in the free space department. There are a lot of other options but Copy is quickly becoming one of […]
