When will Nexus 7 (2013) LTE ever be upgraded to Lollipop?
Excuses Excuses , the only thing that seems to appear on the topic of the Android 5.X upgrade for the LTE and 3 G versions of the Nexus . Why should anyone believe that it will ever appear? Promise number 1 December ( Early) then Dec Late than nothing It's past mid January . One reason to buy a Nexus is to get quick upgrades . Now that it is not appearing . perhaps pick something else?

How would you change Google’s Nexus 7 (2013)?
Whenever you talk about a Google device, it’s hard to know where to assign credit: Google, or ASUS, the company actually building the thing in the first place. The second generation Nexus 7 may have cost $30 more than its $199 predecessor, but that cash seems to have all gone to make the hardware even better. When Brad Molen played with it, he said that it had an “incredible display” and “strong... Read more →

How are you keeping your online data safe from 'hackers'?
In light of the recent[1] Apple iCloud news[2], I think it's a good time as any for us to re-evaluate how we're keeping our data safe in the cloud. I have a few measures in place including some two-factor methods and completely random passwords. Unfortunately no solution is full-proof but any methods can help.
With nearly every photo coming from iCloud, I'm beginning to second guess my reliance on auto-back up services. I know SpiderOak is supposed to be all... Read more →

Utilisation de la Batterie pour portable Asus A32-K93
1. Retirez la batterie Batterie Asus A32-K93 de l'ordinateur et déconnectez le câble d'alimentation si vous ne prévoyez pas d'utiliser votre ordinateur portable pendant plus de deux semaines. Vu que la batterie se déchargera pendant son stockage hors de l'ordinateur, elle devra être rechargée tous les trois mois pour étendre sa capacité de cycle et pour éviter les problèmes de charge ou d'autonomie dans le futur.
2. La batterie doit être stockée dans un endroit où la température est... Read more →

Are digital magazine subscriptions worth it?
I've been contemplating picking up digital subscriptions for various magazines to help encourage me to read more on the weekends. The thing is, looking at the prices of something I feel like they may be a little overpriced. When I browse through the store a lot of them (if I can actually find them) don't even look like they're designed for tablets, offering nothing more than PDF scans of the articles.
I'm likely going to purchase a few issues before a flight to see if it's worth it, but I'm just... Read more →

Taking photos with a tablet
Back when the original iPad came out, there was a small segment of people who lamented the fact that the device didn't have a rear facing camera. But there was a larger group of people that were annoyed at the suggestion that a tablet should even have a camera -- myself included.
Apple ultimately released the iPad 2 with a camera and since then, nearly every tablet that's been released has included a rear facing camera.
And this is something that's seemingly changed... Read more →

What are your favorite alternatives to Android's default apps?
One of the strongest features with Android is the ability to set third party apps to be the default app of choice for certain actions. Don't like using Hangouts? Install Textra and you're good to go. Need more features from your camera? Don't worry because CameraZoomFX has loads more.
Today on Engadget we offered up some of the best alternatives to default apps... Read more →

"The iPad is just a big iPod touch"
That’s the line that went around a few years ago when the first iPad was announced. As time has gone by and I’ve given the matter more thought, I realize those people were right.
As phones get larger and larger ( 3.5" iPhone -> 5.7" Galaxy Note 3) and tablets get smaller and smaller (10" iPad -> 7" Nexus 7), it becomes more evident to me that they’re essentially the same product category.
Think about it - for every iPad app, you could have a smaller version on the iPhone that does the... Read more →

Could you live without Google products?
After Google shutdown reader, and with their bigger push of Google+, I'm noticing blog posts popping up a bit more with people moving away from Google services. Aside from the companies history of just axing products, the issue appears to be users are becoming uncomfortable with Google's changes that affect products across the entire web -- not to mention the sweeping change to Gmail, IMAP, XMPP is leaving some people unhappy.
I was trying to think about how difficult it would be to make this... Read more →

Wireless Charging: Is it worth it yet?
Ever since the Nexus 4, and early Nokia Lumia's were announced, I was somewhat excited by wireless charging. This was the future. I wanted to have this functionality.
Over a year later, I own a nexus 4 and still plug in a cable every night. In my opinion I still don't think wireless charging is at the place I want it to be. Here is why:
1. You have to find one that will work well for your phone
I know Qi charging is rapidly becoming the best standard in wireless charging, but a lot of the wireless... Read more →

Lower rating than iPad Mini?
I was comparing this and the iPad mini and was confused that this had the lower rating of two because it has a higher resolution screen, a faster processor, higher average user reviews, higher average critic reviews, seemingly more glowing praise in the written section (no negative comments vs. comments like "However, it is by no means perfect..." and "...it isn't the best bang for the buck among small tablets...") and costs $100 less. It doesn't seem to add up.

Very promising !
This should be the super Tablet when it comes to the market. The processor, the screen res, 5MP cam, easily makes it the best tablet available in the market.
I own an iPad and Nexus 7.1 (I will call this as 7.2) with JB 4.3 update in it already, and I am very happy with the performance, screen etc - which made me to carry it everywhere and iPad is almost retiring. I would strongly recommend anyone a Nexus 7.1 or or 7.2 - paying a hefty amount on other tablets wouldn't make sense.
Google should...
