Deal: Samsung Galaxy S7 can be had for $279.99 refurbished

Growing pains – the Galaxy S8 starts acting up with random restarts

One by one, the Galaxy S8’s growing pains are becoming evident. The red screen tint and Wi-Fi connectivity issues that bothered users have been extensively documented and already taken care of by Samsung with an update that recently began making the rounds.

Looking at Samsung's i9000 Galaxy S

Fresh for the summer of 2010, Samsung have unveiled their latest mobile handset, the Galaxy S. And it seems that they are going straight for the jugular of the Smartphone heavyweights with this brilliant Android handset. The Galaxy S is one of the few mobile handsets currently available that can capture video footage in a resolution of 720P, or in more simplified terms, High Definition. Quite often video capture is almost an afterthought, but that is not the case here and now the user can shoot footage in a similar quality to the 5 million pixels that the still shot facility offers. The first thing that will spring to mind to many is that the HD footage must be a drain on memory, which is correct. However Samsung have addressed this by packing 16GB of internal memory into the handset alongside a micro SD slot, meaning the potential for a further 32 GB to be added. The Samsung Galaxy S is certainly a well “connected” handset. For people who are always on the go the handset is 3G enabled as well as supporting EDGE and GPRS technology. And the Internet connectivity does not stop here. The inclusion of WiFi means when in range of their personal router (or any other public WiFi area) the phone will automatically connect to this, resulting in an even faster and more enjoyable browsing experience. The widget based User Interface also helps the user benefit from the phones excellent connectivity. The Friends and Updates widget for example keeps you up to date with all of your friends updates from various social networking sites. The 9.9mm depth of the Samsung Galaxy S is achieved thanks to Samsung incorporating Super AMOLED technology into the screen. By using a single sheet of glass rather than two not only is the depth of the unit reduced, but viewing angles are also improved. The 480 x 800 screen resolution is very high for such a device, as is large 4 inch size, both points helping make this screen the best currently available, so much so that Apple are apparently in negotiation to use it on future generations of the iPhone. An accelerometer chip and proximity sensor are both fitted to allow for auto rotate functions and screen shut off during calls to prevent unnecessary button presses. The Samsung Galaxy S looks set to catapult to the top of the smartphone tree. Its superb quality screen is the real eye catcher, but the HD video footage and excellent TouchWiz UI make it a real contender for the phone of the year. The Samsung Galaxy S and the HTC Smart are coming soon

Johnny Trigg – Bbq Pitmaster Of Smokin' Triggers

Johnny Trigg has been cooking barbecue, and winning, for some years now. Infact, so far he has managed to bag over $550,000 dollars in prize money as he has worked his way through a myriad of BBQ events while claiming a whole slew of titles along the way.

Featured in the TV show BBQ Pitmasters that has aired over the last few weeks on TLC, Johnny has been fortunate enough to escape a great deal of anguish that the other competitors have (see the power outage that affected Lee Ann Whippens rottiserie).

Alvarado born Texan, Johnny Trigg is well known for his top quality ribs, winning solid placements in events, and was named Grand Champion in the 15th annual Pork Checkoff-sponsored Great Pork BarbeQlossalTM way back in 2002.

At the time, his winning team, Smokin Triggers, earned cash and prizes including the grand prize of $5,000 and a Kingfisher Kooker valued at $1,700.

Things have only move onward and upward for Trigg since then, as he also won the Jack Daniel’s Championship in 2000 and 2003 and so far, has taken over 40 Grand Championships nationwide.

Much like Tuffy Stone, the relatively laid-back Trigg who is often called “The Grandfather of BBQ”, favors the use of a 26″ offset Jamie Geer built Jambo Pit that he has used with great success since he started competing seriously over a decade ago.

Johnny Triggs Smokin’ Triggers BBQ Grilling Tips

1. Purchase quality meats.

2. Use a rub or spice that will bring out the flavors.

3. Do not overcook the meat. Use a temperature gauge to check the doneness of the meat.

4. Use lump charcoal instead of bricks.

5. Do not soak wood chunks. It will add too much smoke flavor.

Johnny Trigg is set to perform well in TLC’s BBQ Pitmasters, among the stiff competition of Myron Mixon, Lee Ann Whippen, Paul Petersen, Jamie Geer, Harry Soo and Tuffy Stone who are all competing for the $40,000 prize.

Super Mario Run hits nearly 150 million downloads, but makes less money than Fire Emblem

Super Mario Run, one of the most successful mobile games launched by Nintendo this year, has reached almost 150 million downloads on both the Android and iOS platforms combined.

Although that’s says something about the game’s success, it appears that not many of those who downloaded Super Mario Run were willing to pay for it. As some of you might know already, Super Mario Run offers the first couple of levels for free, after which players must pay to access the full game.

Moreover, the second mobile game released by Nintendo in 2017, Fire Emblem has a bigger …
