The challenge if you wish to accept to see if your phone is a beast. To upgrade or not to upgrade.
1. Call a friend and keep that friend on speaker phone.
2. Have that friend email a video file to you as an attachment to the email.
3. Play the video file while you are still on the phone chatting with your friend.
4. Pause the video, make a screen shot. Message the screen shot to your friend via MMS. Then send the same screen shot to your friend via the email address he used to email you the video file.
5. If you can talk on the phone at the same time,get an email open the attachment, play the video attachment, while still holding a conversation with your friend. Send a screen shot of said video at same time via mms and then email the screen shot all while still chatting on the phone. Your phone is a beast. No need to upgrade it unless you just want new for the sake of getting something new. Just sayin.
Fyi. I was able to do all of the above using an android phone with quad core. LG OPTIMUS G
I was configuring Apache spam assassin and ran some tests on what setting works best for me.
1.6 is the magic number.
Some say may think this may be too aggressive of a setting. Try it. You will find that legit emails get through and the majority of spam won't get through. The only junk mail that gets through will be the ones where the entire email message is an image that is sent from a domain not on the black lists yet.
1.5 setting is too aggressive though, and a legit email from gmail won't even make it through the filter.
So what's the best way to hold your mobile device? Do your hands get tired or your neck and shoulders feel the strain of your head always looking down? Think of the effort your body exerts holding up that head bent forward looking down while your hands and arms are holding that mobile device.
Surely ergonomics and poor posture for hours at a time daily are revealing weakness and taking a toll. It doesn't do your body good.
What are you doing different to balance your head, neck, hands and arms from feeling the strain?
My dog Roxy was lethargic and lost weight. Her breathing at her chest was not normal and was fast and seemed labored.
Half black lab, left ear flopped down and the other ear standing up, tail wagging, sitting pretty for a snack, laying her head in my lap for the softest of pets on her hear, was her favorite.
Saying to her, "Who's my pretty Roxy girl?" would always get her to pep up and get her exited. Grab her leash for a walk and she would start running in circles waiting anxiously for the leash to be snapped on so we could go.
When she became lethargic, we took her to the vet. Check up, X-rays, and blood work results revealed that she was super sick. Everything on the blood work was off the charts. Liver failing, and other internal organs failing. She was sick and wouldn't show us.
The vet said there was nothing we could do to bring her back to health and that we could hospitalize her for further testing and leave her there for care, but there was a 50/50 chance she wouldn't make it through the night.
We were devastated. My wife and girls and I cried.
I did not want Roxy's last night to be alone, so we took her home and spent every moment through the night with her.
The next day, Roxy was not better, but not worse. At least that's what I wanted to believe.
She ate and drank sparingly and for the most part stayed laying down with the occasional get up and move to lay in another favorite spot.
I told myself she would get better. Then I researched her condition and read of others who went through the same thing.
Roxy would not reveal to me how sick she was. I was hoping for a sign. I wished she could talk to me and let me know the right thing to do.
My wife bought her a squeaky toy, lamb chop stuffed toy, and Roxy knew it was hers. For an hour she squeaked the toy as she lay there. She was happy.
I fed her the best soft meal until she didn't want anymore.
I went outside with her and she there up clear liquid and some of the food I had fed her.
She stood there in the sun. Taking it all in. She looked at me but in a different way. She drooled, and that wasn't normal, and her eyes were half way rolled up, and that wasn't normal.
I brought her inside and for the next few hours I struggled with what was the right thing to do for my Roxy girl.
The vet said she was not going to recover, yet Roxy was doing everything she could to be awesome. The vet said she was surprised how Roxy was still hanging on and her strong good natured demeanor was amazing.
To make a long story short. We, as a family, said goodbye to our Roxy girl and made the hard choice.
We made her last night and her last day awesome. We celebrated her life, made her comfy, spoiled her, and we were all there with her when she went to sleep peacefully.
We cried. We laughed. We cried some more. My wife and I buried her that day with our other pets at the family ranch.
To love a pet so much, a family member really, and to make the choice to make sure she doesn't suffer and to say that last good bye and give that last hug, and that last kiss, and to make sure she knows she is loved..... all I can say is, when it's your time to do this for your pet, my family and I are sending good vibes your way.
If you are into war strategy games, this is a must try app. I've been playing it for six months now and with live real time translation, it's way cool to have people from all over the world on my alliance. The interaction is awesome.
My dentist is Doctor Mark Nguyen and he is the coolest and best dentist on earth hands down. Why? Because he does what's right instead of what's easy. While getting a filling re done, he saw that a crown was causing food particles to get stuck. Other dentists would have said, floss better. Doctor Mark Nguyen shaved the crown and fixed the problem. No extra charge.
The time he takes to do my dental work right is so much appreciated. He asks if I'm experiencing any pain during the procedure because he genuinely cares.
I hear how he speaks to the assistant as he is working on me and he is making sure all is well.
Doctor Mark Nguyen is at Beach Dental in Fort Worth Texas at 7570 N. Beach St, Forth Worth, Tx 76137. 817-605-7272
His staff is awesome and super friendly and his waiting area and offices are super clean.
Going to a dentist can be stressful. I am usually feeling anxiety at first, but then once I get seated and flip through the TV channels from my dental chair, I relax as the doctor comes in and we talk about the latest movies at the theaters.
Thanks Doctor Mark. I recommend this dental practice / office to everyone in the area.
Lauren Mansilla wants an iPad mini and sometimes she doesn't. With so many choices available for a mini tablet, what's one to do? After all, with planned obsolescence from Apple, it's not like the latest and greatest will be the latest and greatest for long.
My dad got my brother a google nexus 7 tablet and he loves it.
I use a kindle fire to read my college books, and it's fine for doing just that. Reading.
I like the apps from the apple store.
I like the way my iPhone and iPad works. I like the form factor of my kindle fire. Maybe an iPad mini is just what the doctor ordered.
The cellphone turns 40 and is not over the hill. In 1984 the cellphone was selling for $4000. I remember my dad telling me about paying over $1 per minute to use during peak time.
Forty years ago, Martin Cooper, a VP at Motorola, made history by placing the very first cellphone call. Appropriately enough, he called his rival at AT&T's Bell Labs.
Thirty-three years later, a slightly more theatrical Steve Jobs dialed a Starbucks cafe in San Francisco to order 4,000 lattes, making the first public phone call from the very first iPhone while a hushed auditorium filled with journalists watched.
