Facebook Cleanup

Doing a Facebook cleanup can help keep many annoying things from popping up on your home page and in your timeline. With all of the apps around and Facebook integration with so many apps, it really seems difficult to keep things private anymore. Doing a Facebook cleanup can really help you combat this problem.

First let’s start off with friends. Some of you might be friend happy, adding everyone and anyone, however you have to be cautious when doing so. Especially if you have a lot of personal information listed in your About Me section, or love to post your current location.

Leaving all of your personal information could actually be dangerous if you have a stalker of some sort. It also makes it easy for people to target you for spamming or the annoyance of people adding you for games. Just make sure

Google Tablet coming soon?

Google is planning to go head to head with Apple by releasing Google Tablets. News from the Wall Street Journal says that they will be releasing these tablets as they have with Google phones in the past. It would be great if Google does this as they have with phones and Chrome Books in the past. 

The reason it would be great is that fact that you will be getting Android the way it was intended to be. You will be getting stock Android that will be easier to customize and make your own. You will not have all of the added features from the phone manufactures or providers. In short no bloatware that can wreck havoc on your device.

Angry Birds Space Review

Rovio continues to build upon their franchise with Angry Birds Space. It is hard to believe that they can still come up with new ideas on how to sling birds across your screen. With Angry Birds Space they came up with a unique way that works really well.

The concept of the game is pretty much the same. Sling the birds and kill the pigs. What is really awesome with the Space version is how the birds react in space. They will get grabbed by gravitational pull to swing around the androids to kill the pig. If you miss on the first try the birds will loop around until they hit their target or crash into an object. If you miss the gravitational field you bird will shoot off into deep space not to be seen again.

2013 Nissan Altima Fifth Generation

The fifth generation Nissan Altima will be released April of this year. After all of the earthquakes in Japan last year, Nissan has had to work extra hard to keep his vehicle on schedule.

Justine Ezarik  (iJustine) is an internet personality whom you may have seen on TV . Her YouTube channel has been viewed millions of times. She makes spoof music, videos, reviews, and just random stuff from her life. She is considered a lifecaster carrying a camera with her practically 24/7.

With her pretty looks and crazy spunky personality it is hard not to like her. She reminds me of a blonde version of Zooey Deschanel. Although at times I think iJustine takes the cake in the crazy department.

As I said above she makes various videos and can be found on about every social media outlet available.  As you can see by all the sites listed below, she has many websites that helped her achieve success. She gets on all of these sites personally to publicize herself, and she has created an empire all her own.  As crazy and goofy as she may be, she knows marketing very well.

Portable Web Browser

Portable web browsers are installed on a thumb drive. The benefit of having it installed on your thumb drive is that you will not have to install it on a computer. Also any web browsing or favorites you add will be added to the thumb drive and not the computer itself.

It is great having a Portable browser the instances when you are not able to install a web browser to a computer due to administrative rights. Many large companies use older browser because they might not be up to speed with the latest and greatest. Therefore they will not let you install newer versions or prohibit different browsers.

Facebook App on Android is horrible

Facebook Application
Okay I know many of you probably use the Facebook app religiously and cannot think of way to live without it. However, the Facebook app on Android is horrible. There are other ways you can connect to Facebook which are a lot better and save a lot of resources on your phone.  

As you all know it is hard not to get on Facebook anymore as everyone and their mother is on Facebook. So your phone may have come with the Facebook application pre-installed. Everyone is compelled to use the Facebook app for this very reason. If this is the case simply don’t log into your account with the application to prevent it from running.

Many people seem to have issues with the Facebook app or it may run a little slow at times. This seems to be pretty common among Android users however they put up with it because they think this the only way to connect to Facebook.

Not only does it freeze up at times it also uses a large amount of memory on your phone. On a few devices you might see an error message with your system saying you are low on memory. Clearing the cache on the Facebook application takes care of that problem in many cases.

The HTC One X is heading our way in the 2nd quarter of this year on AT&T. The One X is going to be the largest HTC headset available for you to purchase. The 4.7 screen should give good competition to let's say the Galaxy Note. With smaller dimensions you might not feels as weird carrying the HTC One X around as with the Note. 

A few things that are really making this phone stand out are its size, horsepower, camera, and audio capabilities. This combination of features is what has made HTC a leader in the past. Samsung might lead the race but HTC is right on their tail. 

As I said above the HTC One X is going to have a 4.7 inch screen which is large however not clown large. The display is going to be a 720p HD for good picture quality. The pixel density should be around 312 a little behind it's competitors but maybe not really enough to tell. One great introduction

Android Market = Google Play

Alright so many of you might have been confused due to the name change of the Google Market. So it is clear it is now Google play. Over the past year on the Android Market you may have noticed the introduction of movies, books, and music all together.

With no ink you will not have to worry about it getting clogged up or having it break and making a mess in your purse or bag. That is
