Samsung Halts Galaxy Note7 Sales, Advises Customers to Turn It Off.


From Samsung:

Consumers with either an original Galaxy Note7 or replacement Galaxy Note7 device should power down and stop using the device and take advantage of the remedies available.

One of my associates has an original Samsung Galaxy Note7 and was in the process of getting a replacement. I guess he will have to get a new phone now.

Automatic Pro

I have been using Automatic since its first iteration back in 2013. The second generation Automatic adapter has built-in GPS, relying less on the phone.

The third Automatic adapter inludes Unlimited 3G subscription for 5 years. Granted, I am likely to buy the next version of Automatic adapter.

There are stark difference between Automatic Pro App and its predecessor. According to Automatic Labs, they are still working on features to be included in the Automatic Pro App.

I miss the Info Dashboard on the (old) Automatic App, I’m sure that it is coming to the Automatic Pro App.

The Automatic Pro App includes a “Drive Style” analysis.

According to Automatic Pro App, I’m a bit aggressive on the Highways as opposed to being on the City streets.

I recommend Automatic Pro for those who would like to keep track their driving activities; that includes parents and companies.

Automatic Pro is available for purchase direct from Automatic Website and soon at

A Swollen iPhone 5 Battery

Bulging iPhone 5 Battery.jpg

A colleague of mine asked me if I could “unbend” his iPhone 5. I found out that the battery was swelling and pushed the screen out. I then proceeded toat take the screws out and removed the battery.

As of August 29, 2016, Apple is offering $75 in gift card for iPhone 5 trade-in. Apple charges $79 for out of warranty battery replacement. So, It’s not worth having Apple to replace the battery, unless I can give this iPhone 5 to someone.
