    Listening mp3 songs/albums in the car

    Who burns MP3s to CDs anymore? No one! If you do that, why not just buy a CD from Amazon, rip to WAVs and to MP3? Also, yes, for videos and MP3s YouTube is best; I have gotten lots of full albums in MP4.

    Does anyone know about this "Pocket Mode", or use it? It kept locking my device, and causing me too many problems. Thus, I had to shut it off, found it in Android 11. This feature is so bothersome I was forced to reset my phone once. Anyway, it displayed a message not to block blue screen on...

    Are traditional HDDs still the preferred storage drive vs SSD?

    Compare prices of SSDs to HDDs. You will note 500gb ssd for same price as 2TB HDD. I have external HDDs, and use 500mb SD flash drives as they have notch that prevents deletion.

    Caller ID & block apps?

    Security Master(Cheetah) has removed caller ID&Block from the app. Explanation was Google Play's TOS no longer allows it. Huh? What does GP have to do with some apps not owned or developed by it? Why would they care, unless they are pushing their own caller ID apps. Anyway, SM seems to take...

    Beware of backing up important data on mechanical drives!!

    I guess the lesson is dont store your HDDs under your keyboards. Reminds me of a guy who placed a diamond ring into a Sundae which his girlfriend ate. Proposal didnt go as planned; lesson is dont place rings into food.
