When I get out of the house, I usually bring along gadgets that need to connect to the Internet. In my case, I have an Android mobile phone that has the data subscription. I usually turn on the phone’s WiFi Hotspot feature so that my other gadgets will be able to connect to the internet. For me, it has gotten to a point that I decided to do something about this repetitive task of turning on and off my phone’s WiFi Hotspot whenever I leave or arrive my house.
I’ve had this Casio G-Shock watch for as long as I can remember. It’s lightweight, waterproof and shockproof. Sometimes I don’t even bother removing it when I take a bath or go swimming. It’s been with me come rain or shine.
I’ve been an iPhone user for a while now. Been a while since I’ve purchased an Android mobile phone. I’ve decided to find a replacement for the old Sony Xperia smartphones I’ve been using. For starters, the smartphone needs to run on Android Marshmallow (6.x), has dual-SIM support, a fingerprint sensor and has a Bluetooth 4.x chip that has support for peripheral mode Android apps.
It also needs to support all the LTE frequency bands that are currently being used by the local telcos in the Philippines. In doing some research, I found out that in the Philippines, telcos use LTE Bands 1, 3, 5, 7, 28 and 41.
After searching for available Android smartphones, I’ve decided to buy an Asus Zenfone 3 Max (ZC553KL model).
Just arrived from the mail is my Xiaomi Mi Band 2 fitness, heart rate and sleep tracker. It’s the second fitness tracker I got as a gift. The first one has similar features.
Will try it out over the next few days.
While reading news this morning, I found this cool video that showcases the actual products found in Apple’s $300 Product Design Photos Catalog
I’ve got one of those generic $25 fitness and activity tracker for a while now. One of the functions I’m interested in the fitness tracker is it’s “virtual leash” feature — if a user’s smart phone gets too far away from the tracker it will vibrate while the phone will start emitting a sound.
This week, I’ve decided to convert my site, igerry.com, to HTTPS by using SSL certificates from Let’s Encrypt. Let’s Encrypt provides free SSL certificates to web site owners. Getting an SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt is just one part of the whole process of having a site support HTTPS connections.
Since I’m running a WordPress site, I had to first convert URL references on my site which still use HTTP to start using HTTPS. I found a useful plugin called Better Search and Replace to help me find URL’s on my site and convert the links to HTTPS.
To make sure that visitors to iGerry use an encrypted HTTPS protocol connection, I’ve redirected incoming HTTP url’s to HTTPS url’s.
After I’ve got everthing working, I’ve finally updated my Google Analytics and Search Console configurations to start using the new HTTPS site.
Finally got the Link ‘n Find app published on the App Store. You can download from the App Store (http://appstore.com/linknfind)
I’ve been busy for the past several months developing my very first iOS app that I plan to publish on the App Store. I’m almost done and would be submitting the app soon for review. With the WWDC 2015 conference for iOS/OS X Developers just around the corner, I’ve decided to create a list of the of the coolest apps available on the App Store for iOS Developers. Some of them has really helped me a lot in creating my first app. These apps is one of the reasons that I have found Apple’s iPad tablet very useful.
By far, my list of apps for iOS Developers as exhaustive. I just feel that they are some of the apps that really make iOS a great mobile platform and that these creative and great iOS App developers have all made that possible.
This is an exciting time for those who love Programming and Electronics #IoT
