There are lots of “how to” posts and step by step guides out there which are extremely informative. They are great for getting that particular thing done. But sometimes what you need is “How to do this, but also do that while doing this” – These kinds of posts rarely exist, and they are hidden Read more about How to Migrate your Blog from WordPress.com to WordPress.org AND change your Domain Name[…]
I like use the Waze navigation app when I drive. Not only for navigation but also for its speed camera detection, speed limits and of course as any Waze user will know, the points. For this to work well it needs GPS enabled.
In the past I have tried to automate GPS using Tasker profiles like “When I connect to a certain Bluetooth device” or “When a Bluetooth device has connected and the device has been unlocked” but I found they were unreliable. I also tried out automating GPS when Waze launched, but with this profile I also found the exit task to be unreliable and with Waze having to be on the home screen (to avoid multiple taps) I thought it was messy – terrible I know!
So, in this post I’ll show you how I have automated GPS with minimal taps and keeping everything tidy by using a Tasker shortcut. […]
If there’s one thing I have noticed while trying to get an invite to buy a One Plus One is that One Plus are going to make you work for it.
Recently they have been rolling out large batches of invites prior to their new pre-ordering system which has made it easier for a lot to get an invite, in fact this is how I have managed to get mine too. All you need to do is know what is going on and be prepared to drop what you are doing and dash to your computer. Keeping your phone on you at all times is essential.
The following is a list of tools you will need in order to succeed, if you miss one out you risk missing one of One Plus’s clues. Bear in mind I am not an iPhone user so if you are you may need to tweak this plan for it to work effectively with your tech. Oh and congratulations on converting if you are moving away from iPhone!
My parents have recently each purchased an iPhone 5 and asked me to set them up. One of the most important things when changing mobile phones is transferring your contacts. But Apple don’t make it very easy.
I’m an Android man, I have never owned an Apple device nor do I know much about how they work or behave. Which is probably similar to quite a few people out there. So I turn to good old Google for a bit of advice.
Hours of searching on Google turned up a lot of rubbish about how you can back up your contacts through iTunes (which doesn’t seem to be supported any more), or backing up to and managing them through Gmail or Yahoo Mail, which would be good if I wanted to do that, but I wanted to get them onto the iCloud so they can synchronise and constantly update from that source. So I had to get a little bit creative and I thought that I’d share it with you who may be wanting the same end result – transferring your contacts quickly and easily (for free) from your Blackberry device in bulk onto the iCloud, here’s how…..
You will need:
- Your Blackberry device.
- Your iPhone – this needs to be set up so it is backing up to your contacts to your iCloud account. Check your settings.
- Your Blackberry USB cable.
- Blackberry Desktop Software – if you don’t have this you can get it here.
- A PC or laptop with Microsoft Outlook installed (I’m using Office 2007).
- A Yahoo! account.
- TextPad 7 Software – if you don’t have it you can get it here. I used version 7.0.9.
- A cup of tea or a GnT if it’s after 6pm!
