We’ve all seen the headlines recently with articles that say something like “Google Pixel 3 Smartphone Sales Are Down, and They Are Failing Hard.” Here’s the real scoop: Google isn’t trying to beat anyone at anything — they willingly provide smartphone manufacturers with so much free range via AOSP so they can build their own versions of Android. They also supply system level APIs so the manufacturers can implement special hardware features into their customized versions of Android. The fact is, Google wants these manufacturers to go wild with the tools they provide them with — they want to see what cool things these companies can cook up. …

More Than Just a Phone
We use our smartphones to interact with a wide variety of media and applications as a form of entertainment, enjoyment, and work. Taking photos, listening to music, checking the weather, interacting on social media, messaging/texting, playing games, checking emails, catching up on the news, watching videos, and banking are all things we now rely on these devices to help us with our daily lives. This makes the smartphone a multimedia device, which is a more accurate way of defining these devices. …

What Role Do Trends Have?
Trends play an essential role in any industry, but the field of technology is often at the forefront of attention. Contrary to popular belief by many people on the internet, trends in technology are not there to upset or hurt the consumer by any means. Companies do not sit around scheming of the next ways they can screw over their customers with new product designs or services. …

The Rise of Mobile Devices
Mobile has become of such high demand that it now accounts for more than half of all the devices we use on a daily basis. It is hard to imagine a world now without mobile, but there once was a time that we did not have such luxuries. It was not that long ago when desktop and stationary hardware ruled the industry. Times are changing now, and the focus has shifted mainly towards a mobile device populated world. A mobile device is a handheld computer or any other electronic device that is designed with portability in mind. …

The Problem Between Technology and Crime
When we think about the purposes of what technology was supposed to achieve for us, what do we usually mention about it? Most will tell you that the whole idea was meant to make our lives easier and better, which was and is still true in many ways today. …

Treat Others with Respect
In this day and age of smartphones, computers, and other digital devices, I think we often forget proper etiquette when using the internet to interact with others. Online or offline — no one person is better than another regardless of what anyone tells you. We all have to breathe, eat and drink water to sustain life. We all interact with other humans, and we all have feelings just the same.

Somewhere along the lines people either forgot or don’t care about wanting to “treat others like you would want to be treated.” According to all of the hate and dysfunction in the online world — people want to be treated like garbage in exchange for the other party to address them in the same manner? That is absurd and needs to be addressed if we should ever hope to live in a world where we can all get along. …


Basic Principles, Broken System
I think we all get the general idea behind the thumbs up, and thumbs down feature on YouTube, but it’s a broken system. How many times have you viewed a fantastic video just to witness a seemingly random small number of dislikes? You begin to question just what caused these few individuals to dislike the video in the first place. …


Kids Can Be Mean
Let’s face it — we all know how kids (immature adults too) like to pick on and make fun of people who are different than themselves. Kids who weren’t taught to treat others with respect were/are the absolute worst. …


It’s Not Them, It’s You
Whether it comes to video games, TV series, movies, or even books — we always hear about some kind of controversy that seems to upset the fans. Maybe your favorite character died? Or the ending wasn’t what you wanted? You should be able to accept these changes or outcomes without threatening to boycott the series from your life, wouldn’t you agree?

Love Your Series No Matter What (Pixabay)

The developers, creators, directors, and writers are in charge, and they will tell their stories about how they see fit because it’s their vision. If you don’t like that then maybe you should make up your own version and show everybody what really happened. All kidding aside, you should be able to stick with your favorite series without being so sensitive all the time! …
