Where to Find Cute Android Cases

I like to collect phone cases. I see them as an extension of my style, and I often switch them out to match my outfits, the season, or whatever suits my fancy. They’re a great way to show off my personality in a device that’s integral to our everyday lives.

But, I am also an Android user. Moreover, I use a less popular Android phone, an LG G4. I don’t have any thoughtful reason for using it over iOS, except that I’ve had Android phones for so long that I’m more comfortable with the platform. Read more…

Ten Things I Love About Overwatch

(source: wallpapermade.com)

By the looks of the comment section in my last post, it seems that everyone and their mother has heard of Overwatch. I watched Day9‘s playthroughs of it during closed beta, but I didn’t decide to purchase it until the actual release. Both a good and bad decision because this game has taken over my life!

I Still Don’t Get Twitter, Sometimes

You don’t even have to wipe your current operating system to run it. If you have an old computer lying around, a fresh install can give it some new life.

Why Switch to Ubuntu?

Ubuntu (and Linux in general) has several advantages:

LG G4: All About My New Phone

I hesitate to call this post a review of the LG G4 because it’s not written as a technical article. There are no hard spec sheets, no benchmarks (though I did run one for fun), or side-by-side comparisons against other current flagships. This is just a personal entry on how the LG G4 is working out for me and my needs.

I’ve been in the market for a new phone since my HTC One M7 caught the very unfortunate pink camera defect last year. Read more…
