If you’ve ever accidentally deleted photos from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch you probably want to know how to get them back. In today’s article I’m going to be teaching you how to recover deleted photos from iPhone type devices. There are a few ways that you can do this and I’ll talk about each option and explain what I believe are the advantages and disadvantages to each particular method. How to Recover Deleted Photos from iPhone Using Third-Party Software The first method that I’ll be talking about is using third-party software that is specially designed to recover deleted iPhone photos. A quick Internet search will reveal several possible programs that you can use to do just that. An example of a particular piece of software that seems to be quite popular is Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS. This software is supposed to be able to reach into your iPhone and recover deleted photos from it’s memory. I personally believe that this is “usually” the best way to get deleted photos back. It also has… Read More »

By now many of you have probably heard about the security vulnerability that affects users of Android version 4.3 and below. After all, there has been a lot of recent controversy about why Google isn’t providing a patch for these older versions of their operating system. If you would like to read an explanation of why they aren’t, click here: Google Unfairly Criticized for Android Security Bug. When I wrote that article, I promised that I would write a follow up article about how I plan to protect myself from this vulnerability so here it is! If you didn’t already know, this vulnerability is in the “WebView” portion of the Google Android operating system. WebView enables developers of applications to display webpages without the user actually having to leave the app that they are currently using. For example, if you happen to be using an app like Facebook and you see a link to an article that you would like to read, you can click on that link and read the article. WebView will enable… Read More »

If you own a smartphone or a tablet computer that is powered by the Android operating system, you’ve probably read dozens of articles about a Google Android security vulnerability that the technology giant is reportedly “refusing to fix”. I know that I have read several myself and most of these articles are portraying Google as the evil giant that doesn’t care about its users. Nearly every one of the articles that I’ve read on the subject have painted Google in a bad light regarding this matter so I thought it’s about time that someone takes a minute and talks about this issue from a different perspective. In my opinion, who’s better than me to do just that? What’s All the Fuss About These Android Security Issues? Let me start off by pointing out that I’m by no means an expert on this matter but I have done a fair amount of research because I happen to be a very active Android user. Here’s my current understanding about the problem that has so many people up… Read More »

Today we’re going to be talking about something a little bit different here on We are going to be discussing whether or not prepaid phones are worth buying and using. This is a very valid question because there was definitely a time when prepaid cell phones weren’t all they were cracked up to be. In days past, if you bought a prepaid phone, you had to put up with a lot of inconveniences such as poor reception, dropped calls, a poor selection of phones to choose from, poor customer service, and many other nuisances that discouraged a lot of people from purchasing them. Well, things have definitely changed concerning this matter. You can now purchase a prepaid cell phone and gets quite good service and reception. One of the biggest things that dissuaded many people from purchasing these types of mobile devices was the fact that there wasn’t much of a selection when it came to picking out the type of phone that you wanted to use. Most companies simply had very basic run-of-the-mill… Read More »

If you’re an iPhone user, you’ve probably had countless times when your battery was just about ready to die right when you were in the middle of doing something important. Sure, you can make phone calls on iPhones but the days of simply using your phone to make calls have long since passed. In this day and age, we use our iPhones for everything from making calls to balancing our check books. One thing that we all have in common is that when our battery is just about ready to die, we have to scramble and look for the nearest electrical outlet so that we can plug in and get recharged. Unfortunately, there isn’t always a power outlet that happens to be close to where we are sitting. This is especially true in places like airports, coffee shops, doctor’s offices, and other places of business. As a matter of fact, this is even true at our house. It’s not an uncommon sight to see somebody sitting on a kitchen chair that they had moved close… Read More »
