Chrome for Android gets a Welcome Update to 36

Chrome 36 Update is rolling out for Android devices (if you have it installed).  This is a much welcomed update for most us who use it daily.  They have added better support for rendering non-mobile websites.  In other words, those sometimes rich and sometimes media heavy desktop sites should look better with this update.  Now with all updates it comes with the standard bug fixes and performance improvements.  If you do not use Chrome for your Android device, but want to… you can download it for free from the Google Play Store.

Lost But Not Forgotten

Well here we are, 8:3o on a Wednesday evening.  I am now back at home in Canada after spending time with people who I dearly wished lived closer.  Getting what I feel is the red carpet laid out for me.  All over what was a simple BBM over when a fellow blogger was on a road trip.  Turned in to a brotherhood and friendship that will last forever.

Let me start by introducing myself, I am Fubaz, also known as Ricky.  Previous blogger and long time BlackBerry Advocate…. yes I said it, the word that is like a swear or tainted blood in this community “BlackBerry”.  And this goes further back than any of the new revival that they have in place.  This goes back to when many of YOU might too have been using the original smartphone.  When the community was small and to have over 100 peopl eon BBM was a great feat, but now a modern classic as the multi-platform application keeps us all in touch.  The singular sound you hear when you are out, and see everyone grasping for their devices only to see someone pull out a Note 3 and smirk as they reply.

[REVIEW] Otterbox Defender for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

Today we take a look at the Otterbox Defender for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2.0. Otterbox was nice enough to send us one for review.

If you are familiar with Otterbox products, you already know the quality of them. Yes, they do add a bit of bulk to the device, but in my opinion, it’s fine. I like it. It’s designed to do one thing, to protect your device, and it does a awesome job doing that.

Let’s take a look at what you get in the box. The defender is a three piece case, consisting of a plastic shell with a built-in screen protector. There is a rubber skin that wraps around the plastic shell. It gives you a nice feel in the hands and you know it’s not going to slip out of your grasp. It also comes with a hard plastic cover that doubles as a stand that you can sit your tablet on so you can watch movies hands free.


Review: iGrip Universal Tablet Windshield Mount

This is the first time we have ever reviewed a tablet windshield mount, I must start off by saying we waited way too long to do this review. A huge thanks to for sending us the iGrip Universal Tablet windshield mount for review. I have been using the iGrip for about a month now and I must say it is a must have for those of us that own a tablet. The iGrip is compatible with 7″ – 12″ tablets and can either be mounted to your dash or on your windshield. It is this versatility that has impressed me the most as other tablet mounts are typically windshield only mountable. I have used multiple tablets in this holder from the BlackBerry PlayBook to the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 to the Nexus 7. Having the ability to use the same mount for multiple tablets is great and is a must have for those of us on the go or with kids.
