We have two Google Pixel phones in our house: a Pixel 2 and a Pixel 3. Both of them drop off our home wireless network regularly. It causes lots of problems with various applications on the phones, especially casting video via Chromecast. At the time when I first noticed the drops, I was using a pair of wireless access points (APs) from Engenius: EAP600 EAP1200H Also, here’s what I knew at the time:
As I try to motivate myself to exercise more often, I’ve struggled to find suitable headphones for running and other outdoor work. My criteria includes the following: Needs to stay put on my ears, even when I get sweaty Wireless is preferable so I don’t get tangled For wireless, it should last three to four hours at a minimum It needs to sound decent The Bad I went through a slew of headphones.
After using Spotify for a couple of months, I decided to try Google Play Music All Access. My experience was quite good from the start: Music selection My music tastes include some very popular artists as well as some less popular ones. I found that Spotify and Google Play almost always had what I was looking for. Some artists only have portions of their catalog available for streaming and I found the selection of music in both products to be identical.
I’m still quite pleased with my Samsung Galaxy SIII but there are some finicky Bluetooth issues with my car that I simply can’t figure out. After discovering logcat, I wondered if there was a way to get logs sent from an Android device to a remote syslog server. It’s certainly possible and it actually works quite well. My phone is currently rooted with CyanogenMod 10 installed. Some of these steps will require rooting your device.
After getting Android-envy at LinuxCon, I decided to push myself out of my comfort zone and ditch my iPhone 4 for a Samsung Galaxy S III. It surprised a lot of people I know since I’ve been a big iPhone fan since the original model was released in 2007. I’ve carried the original iPhone, the 3GS, and then the 4. There have been good times and bad times, but the devices have served me pretty well overall.
