Ice Cream Sandwich melts in summer heat

I just recently updated Samsung Galaxy S II with official release of Ice Cream Sandwich. Unfortunately, I am not completely satisfied with it. Main reason is that it sucks the battery like a thirsty man during summer heat. Ooops, and the bottle is empty before you even understand what happened.

Unbearable lightness of tablets

Well, they are light when you compare tablets weight with a pile of books, newspapers, magazines, printouts etc. And that is the main advantage of tablets… at least for me.

This time I thought to install Samsung Kies and prepare myself for upcoming update of Samsung Galaxy S (Android 2.2). What ensued was probably the worst day and a half of … Continue reading
