Earlier this week, I launched a new tech website called GeekOn.In. It's a blog for all kinds of geeks, written by geeks. We already have a team of three authors and we're looking to expand, so if you are interested in writing for the blog, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you as soon as I can. So go ahead, and Geek on in.
I recently returned my Samsung Galaxy S8+ and decided to get the Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra. I got the Sony because I played with it at Best Buy, and really enjoyed the experience, and as I researched more into it, I found I really liked the phone. Now, after having the phone for a week, here's some thoughts on my experiences.
Great 6 inch screen. Although it's only 1080p, it's Samsung-vibrant, which I likeGreat battery life, easily can get through a heavy-use day with time to spare at the end of the night.Great camera; another reason I wanted this phone is because I love my Sony a5100 and the camera is pretty dang nice on this phone I must say.Fast. 6 GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 630 are just fine on this beast.
Cons: Poor ergonomics. This phone is huge, not as easy to hold as the S8+, bulky as hell, and pretty heavy.Horrible screen rotation algorithm. I've used big phones before, but this one is extremely sensitive to the slightest tilt of the screen. Now, that would be…

Most of the time, they can cost over $100! But how does free sound? Most of the time, free is good, so if you don't want to spend a lot of money on a word processor and all of the stuff it comes with, why not try out Google Docs or Microsoft SkyDrive Office? Google Docs comes with a word processor, presentation, spreadsheets, drawing, and you can create forms for your website. Here's the thing about Google: They make stuff that works good and is good! From writing an essay, to presenting to your company, the Google Docs suite comes with almost everything you need to make it work great. The only downside is the word processor doesn't really tell you how many pages you have typed up, and the presentation webware doesn't allow you to have action buttons to go to another slide. But still you get so much for…
In no particular order:Billy Joel's library spans three decades, so there's plenty of materialEven if there wasn't plenty of material to work with, Margaritaville and Garth Brook's channel regularly play other artist's musicHe doesn't take any shit from anybodyInitially I thought maybe it would've been too expensive to have a whole channel for him, but if SiriusXM can afford The Beatles to have their own channel, then by golly, Billy Joel should be fineIt would make me happyHeck, even if they combined it with Elton John, I'd be happy, maybe happier
So, SiriusXM, I've given many good reasons for Billy Joel to get his channel put back permanently. Your move!
