Does the Blackberry PRIV Give You the Blackberry Experience?

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSBlackberry phones were popular because they were meant for business. Their security features were better than any other phone at the time. Some CEO’s would lose their minds if they didn’t have it. Even President Obama had to have a Blackberry over an iPhone 10 years ago. Fast forward to today. Blackberry broke down and created the Android version called PRIV, hoping it would bring those CEOs back. I got this phone from my friends at Verizon Wireless to find out if they accomplished the job. Let’s look at the specs. This is an Android phone running the Qualcomm 8992 Snapdragon 808 Heza-Core processor at 64-bit. An Adreno 418 GPU at 600 mHz and 32 GB Flash memory, upgradable to 2 TB.

Powerful LG-V10 Smartphone Video Review

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSFirst I have to say I am not a fan of the larger smartphone. However, the LG V10 is a phone I saw myself using. It does have some downfalls that make it tougher to recommend. Verizon Wireless gave me the phone to test out while I was in Vegas for CES 2016. LG V-10 Specs This is a removable battery and memory expandable smartphone. The LG V10 contains a Quad-core Snapdragon 808 chip for a nice crisp screen in day or night.

You can even customize the message on top. The main camera is 16 MP, and the front facing facing...

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge – My Love – Hate Relationship with this Phone

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS  Samsung has always tried to be on the cutting edge of mobile technology. They have continuously tout they have cooler features than the iPhone, and in some cases, they are right. However, the newest phone in their arsenal – the S6 Edge – while cool, shows that not all ideas are great. Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Specs This is a 32 GB device and this particular one is on the Verizon Network. The “Revolutionary design” is basically a side-less phone. The edge of the screen wraps around the phone and can serve as a small display that can tell the time, let you know if someone has called, get calendar alerts, and more. The phone itself is a 5.1 inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass to protect from scratches and drops. The rest of the phone is...

Absolute LoJack Challenge & My Stolen iPhone Story

NOTE: This is a post brought to you by Absolute LoJack. The Contest part is over. All opinions on software are those of Geekazine. Last week I announced a contest and talked about going #DigitallyDark for the Absolute LoJack Challenge. I have actually had this happen to me, which is a far better story than any “recreation” I could make. That is when I started thinking about better protecting my devices, especially since  I need them to do my job. Remember: A Laptop is stolen every 50 seconds. That laptop could have your vacation or kids photos, tax or other business documents, or even a list of all your passcodes for home and work. Worse yet, Consumer Reports states that 1.6 million smart phones were stolen. 100 devices stolen in 60 seconds! Some of them were NOT from cherry pickers (those who grab phones sitting on a table or bar). Some...

I’m Taking the Absolute LoJack Challenge

We are at an age where if we lose our connected devices, we feel lost or even violated. Not only is this a gateway to our friends and family through social apps, but it also contains our pictures, documents, lives – all on a smartphone, tablet, or computer. Last July I had my iPhone stolen (also known as “Cherry picked”), which put me in a loop. I technically went through this challenge back then unwittingly. I ended up getting a $15 “burner” phone while I was on a 2 day trip, then replaced with an old smartphone to save money. Of course we know that a laptop is stolen every 50 seconds. The price of any iPhone on the black market is a couple hundred bucks – while you spend over $600 to replace it yourself. You might have insurance through renters or home owners insurance, but the...
