iPhone or Samsung? Why you should get a Samsung rather than an iPhone (and, you know, vice versa)

26 comments, most recent: Shaun Sweeney said on : "

Not a lot of mention here about the bloatware that specific carriers can install on the phone itself. Compare iOS to android phones and you'll see at each carrier they add in their specific bloatware software. This does't happen on ios.

I agree. There is not any clue as to what this author likes.

iPhone or Samsung? Why you should get a Samsung rather than an iPhone (and, you know, vice versa)

I have owned several Android devices and do not care for them anymore. There are just too many phone makers and different variants of the Android phone. There is too much software bloatware added on specific carriers that can't be un-installed. The operating systems requires much more RAM, we have to quit apps running in the background (there are even apps for this), and the system settings are nowhere as close to being user friendly as Apple. With all of the bells and whistles set aside Apple wins in this category. It is easier to use. Apple supplies the phone, the software and it's cloud. Samsung supplies only the phone. Remember the old saying "too many cooks in the kitchen?" When you have Samsung, Android, and the mobile carrier adding apps and screwing with he phone there is a chance your appetite will be lost. Back a few years ago I used to be a phone tech and we had soo many Samsung phones coming in with all types of issues. Very few iPhones came in with issues. The Samsung Galaxy s2 launched with known GPS issues, GPS didn't work at all. It took several months before the issue was fixed. Bad Samsung.

Advent Tacto review: a budget laptop that has specs that rival more expensive laptops

4 comments, most recent: nel said on : "

A big disappointment. The case cracked round the hinges, it doesn't open and close any more. Had to have it replaced within 5 months because the camera didn't work, the keyboard is no good, can't type properly. Worst now it's all cracked around the hinges less than a year old and finally today I found it dead it's not turning on! Do not buy,a waste of money!

Living with a Chromebook: can you use a Chromebook as your only laptop?

28 comments, most recent: Michael Berger said on : "

Last thing

Chromebook supports evernote. But i don't think it's possible to scan directly to evernote, because again, you use HP printer and HP cloud server. They have to enable this option on their side for you to do it.

Maybe if you buy a newer printer, it will have more cloud options/abilities. Ask HP this question.

Anyway i abandoned evernote for Google Keep and i'm satisfied.

Keep (!) in mind that if you scan a document and save it on Chromebook, it automatically syncs to your Google drive account, meaning you can easily search for your scan anytime in one click.There is no much benefit for saving it to Keep/Evernote. The scan can be stored on Drive too.

Anyway,if you wish to use Evernote, you will be able to sign in from Chromebook, open a new note and attach the scan from the Chromebook - about two extra clicks and you are done

Good luck :)

It took some time for support to pinpoint the correct USB drivers. Still awaiting monitor resolution. Good buy if everything works - but is it worth the hassle?"
