Note: This is possibly my most controversial, yet gutsy, post as of yet: Google. The very name evokes the word search, and has been used as a substitute in sentences, such as “I Googled this” and “I Googled that.” Nothing can take that away from them – they earned their success for the most part. However, [...]
Over the last few weeks I have been inundated with phone calls on advice on how to support a Curtis/Proscan tablet that doesn’t work for some reason, based on my website being linked to mine. I want to set the record straight: RJH Solutions does not generally provide technical support on products made or distributed by Curtis/ProScan. Sorry for my bluntness.
RJH Solutions was hired to build the website containing the products – that’s as far as it goes. Since Curtis/Proscan is generally a wholesaler and you likely have gotten it from a 3rd-party chain if you are reading this post, my advice is as follows: If the product broke, you would need to contact either the store where you purchased the item from, or the manufacturer itself.
As far as budget tablets go, I found the ProScan PLT1044 10.1″ tablet to be a nice option. Like many reviews have stated, you will not get the “latest and greatest” but it’s indeed a quality budget tablet. Does the job.
One of the most glaring items that are missing though is Google Play. While Android is open-source and there are other sites to download apps, Google Play seems to be one of the most essential items for any Android device. So, what do we do?
Manually install it, of course! However, Google Play isn’t available for this device, but the next-best thing, the Android Market, is. Installing Android Market was a straightforward process. I followed the following steps, courtesy of The Digital Reader:
Google Apps for Business No Longer Free – This Cruel, Mean Outrage “Puts a Wrench” in Small Businesses
This post comes from the heart.
I recently checked my email which is currently hosted on the now-former Google Apps for Business Free account. I received an email from a Google address with a message that I initially thought to be a prank. It read:
“Hello from Google,
Here’s some important news about Google Apps—but don’t worry, there’s no need for you to take any action. We just want you to know that we’re making a change to the packages we offer.
Starting today, we’re no longer accepting new sign-ups for the free version of Google Apps (the version you’re currently using). Because you’re already a customer, this change has no impact on your service, and you can continue to use Google Apps for free.
Should you ever want to upgrade to Google Apps for Business, you’ll enjoy benefits such as 24/7 customer support, a 25 GB inbox, business controls, our 99.9% uptime guarantee, unlimited users and more for just $5 per user, per month.
Thank you for using Google Apps.
Director, Google Apps”
“But don’t worry, there’s no need for you to take any action. We just want you to know that we’re making a change to the packages we offer.” Yeah, right. Nice way to put the wrench in new small businesses with practically no prior notice!
In the past I wrote about Groupon Clones and reviews. Well, the hype on that seems to have cooled off, and now people are wondering what to do next. Well, there are are always Daily Deal Aggregator scripts. Of the many Groupon Clone websites that launched, while not many lasted beyond 3-6 months, the number [...]
So, you’ve written a book? Congratulations. Whether it’s the work of years or simply your latest entry, it was almost certainly a difficult and demanding project that it would be great to get some recognition for. Sure, you can go through the traditional routes and send out your manuscript to the publishing houses in hopes that [...]
Pinterest is one of the hottest social neworking sites today. Some people are looking to create their own niche Pinterest sites as there’s marketing value to keeping everything under one theme. It makes perfect marketing sense: If you attract a large user base you can market “likeable” material. Here are some Pinterest clone script reviews [...]
Well, the Groupon Daily Deal Industry has been dying down as of late. A lot of online businesses opened and closed their doors when they realized that with various pitfalls, as a business in and of itself it’s hard to make a nice profit when targeting a niche of a niche in only 1-2 cities. [...]
Well, it’s live. After a year of waiting the e-Book “Groupon Clones for Morons” has been launched. Firstly, I feel I should finally open up and explain why I delayed in the launching of this e-Book. I initially was working on this a year ago and was sidetracked from writing this due to personal family-related [...]
You’ve got locks on your doors and maybe even an alarm system guarding your home. But all that stands between criminals and your bank account information is the word “password.” Sound familiar? “Password,” “123456″ and, weirdly, “monkey” are among the 25 worst passwords of the year, according to SplashData, a private company that sells security [...]
