2014 In Review For Nerdy Life Of Mine

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Throw Back Wednesday

I find myself looking at old computer parts while cleaning out my garage. I found an Windows 98 install disk, a few floppy disks and a zip drive haha.  Got me thinking about much were computer back in the day and what they were loaded with. Here is the answer:

For $2500.00 you too can buy this Sharp Notebook! 515MB hard drive!? Haha! It’s amazing how far we’ve come over the past 20 years. I found a Toshiba laptop for $400.00 with a terabyte of memory over 8 gigs of ram.(Best Buy if you are wondering.) Heck my Note 3 is rocking a
Card slot microSD 64 GB, Internal 32GB storage with 3 GB RAM.

Drawing On My Note 3

I have to say I love my phone. I believe the Samsung Note 3 is everything I can ask for I a “smartphone”. I like the drawing features that it came with and with the stylist it makes things much easier to use with other applications. One of the main applications I use for drawng is SketchBook Pro for Galaxy that came pre-installed on the Note 3. Another one that I use that was previously downloaded for my nexus 7 tablet, is Adobe Photoshop Touch for Android.

Although SketchBook for Galaxy is mainly for the Note 3. They do have on Google Play SketchBook Pro for sale that is basically the same app, I think it cost $4.99.

Now with Adobe Photoshop Touch I bought this mainly for my nexus 7. But it works so much better on N3. It cost $14.99 at the time and personally I think it was well with the money.

They do have a free version called Photoshop Express and basically has photo filters with minor editing tools. Think Instagram with out upload and there you go. I here are some pictures I’ve been working on with these applications, SketchBook and Adobe Photoshop.

I really like the affects and the free drawing style features for both apps. I’m sure I’ll be doing more as time goes on. Now please keep in mind that this in no way will replace the main Adobe PS program on a PC or Apple.  It’s just a tool for when you are on the good. 

Still having problems with iOS 7? Try one of these reset options

I had a few problems with iOS 7 a few weeks back and made a post about what steps I took (https://nerdylifeofmine.com/2013/09/26/ipad-3-wifi-ios-7-issues/). But this post by Geoffrey is full of better information on what to do when it comes to iPhone/iPad. I thought I would share this for those who are still having problems with iOS 7.

Gigaom

With so many configuration options available to iOS 7, one could easily make a change that causes the device to perform poorly. And remembering every change you have made since you first started using you device may be a bit of a challenge: sometimes your iPhone or iPad just needs to get back to more familiar factory settings.

But completely restoring the device back to the way things were when you first took it out of the box is not always convenient. The following will outline some of the more practical and less time-consuming options you can try first in order to get things back to normal.

Try these simple reset solutions first

Reset Options for iOS 7

Toggle Airplane Mode – One of the easiest solutions to try when you are having trouble accessing the internet is to simply toggle the Airplane Mode. This will disconnect the device from all network connections…
