Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

A friend of mine is an Android user.  In the past, I could use Messages on my iPhone and Mac to text message them.  The outline of the messages with them would be green (which usually indicates they're a non iPhone user).

A recent update on my Macbook have suddenly made it not possible for me to get texts from my friend.  I still get texts on my iPhone, but they are not showing up in Messages anymore on my Macbook.

How do I turn this back on?

Hi, It's been quite a while since I connected my phone to my computer so I don't know if I'm doing something wrong but can't imagine what it might be.  I connected the phone to one usb port and got no action on the phone or the computer. I switched over to another usb port and no action.  I then switched cables and tried both usb ports and no action.  Finally, I rebooted my computer and again no action.

I was expecting to see something show up under This PC or in the Device Manager but I see nothing.  A couple of times I heard a faint sound from the phone, like it connected to something but that was it.  

Is it possible that I have to change my settings either on the phone or the computer?
Thanks in advance.

I have bluetooth on my Surface Pro 4 which is connected most of the time.  Sometimes when my phone rings, it will switch and I can answer my phone via bluetooth, but sometimes I can't even force it.

How can set my phone to take priority when bluetooth is connected to my Surface 4 Pro?

Typing on mobile: some thoughts

I was thinking the other day about smartphones and how I often don't like to type on them. I'm just so used to typing on full-size keyboards, that typing on mobile is like swimming in molasses. And it's really a shame, because in so many other ways, my iPhone is incredibly convenient.

But then, I thought about how speech to text these days is pretty decent, and perhaps the best approach would be to just use Siri for dictation instead of trying to type. I've held off on such things, because I'm old enough (and had enough bad experiences with flaky computer dictation long ago) that psychologically, it feels really weird to talk to a computer.

But in this case, my computer is a phone.

And that means: I feel weird talking to a phone.

Which is kind of weird, don't you think?

What about you? Do you type on your smartphone a lot? Or do you use Siri/Cortana/Google for dictation? Does talking to your phone feel weird or is it totally normal for you?

Stacy: I'm curious... Why do you hate talk to text?
Not speaking for Stacy, but I too get frustrated with 'Siri' sometimes, especially so if I'm driving and try to initiate a hands free call to some of my contacts. I tend to drive with my windows fully down almost all year round so I guess the ambient noise probably doesn't help, but it can be incredibly frustrating when two out of three calls tend to work perfectly!

A typical example goes something like this..
1. Hey Siri, call Tom Smith, office..  "Calling, Tom Smith.. office"   Tick! - Successful call
2. Hey Siri, call Bob Jones, mobile.. "Calling Bob Jones.. mobile"  Tick! - Successful call
3. Hey Siri, call Jennifer Clayton, office..  "Calling John Mechanic, office.."  Huh?!?!

Might take two or three attempts before she finally gets it right and I've had to explain myself a few times when not paying much attention to Siri's answers (which most times I'm not) and the call goes through to someone I had no intention of calling.

One amusing time she wrongly called my dental surgery and I ended up making an appointment for a routine checkup during the call. Turned out I needed a filling so that call ended up costing me about $150.00!! lol..

I'm sure others must have also experienced this phenomenon as well? :)

One reason of not liking talk to text if you ever been on the end of the message that has not been read over before sending is really confusing and can cause some problems.

Second reason just listening to someone use talk to text is simply annoying to me. I don't want to hear the conversation you are having.

This is just my opinion.

I have a client with a sonicwall app on his android phone. It's not on any wifi. It will connect to the VPN but it won't authenticate with the same info that works on the computer. The App seems pretty straight forward, we enter the IP address and then it asks for user name and password. Is there a reason it works on the computer but not the phone?

i asked the question in many places and seems no know are really know how this can be solved

i a trying to apply a on gesture event to the Twebbrowser
 but it seems it does not work at all .

here is how i place the Twebbrowser

1 - i  added Tlayout
2 - i added inside the Tlayout a Tpanel
3- i added inside the tpanel a Twebbrowser

also i have set webbrowser.hittest To True , then i dropped a gesture manager to the form then i set the gesture manager to the Twebbrowser Touch property .

then on gesture manager i have added the following code

if EventInfo.GestureID = sgiLeft then
begin
 
showmessage('left moved');
 
 
Handled := true;
end;

Open in new window


sadly when i move my finger left or right it does not detect the gesture and never show the message that i set

why i cannot use gesture in twebbrowser ?

I used this Note 5 for 2+ years with a great experience.  Great phone - large bright screen 5.7" 2560x1440 pixels, fast 4GB RAM and 32GB Storage, 16mp camera.   All good except.. battery life is terrible.  Time for an upgrade.  
Should I stick with Samsung and go with Note 8 or what would be other recommendations?  

Thanks in advance.

Recently received an Apple Watch as a gift. Thoughtful, but I have an Android phone. I'm assuming the answer is no, but not having done the research I'd like to get that verified. So, this is a two part question.

1. Will an Apple watch work with an Android phone?

2. What would you recommend exchanging it for? (Similiar product, but Android friendly).

Is there a feature available within a Samsung Galaxy S8 to allow rings and notifications only from certain phone numbers? This feature is available for iPhones and now I'm trying to figure out how to activate this feature on a Samsung Galaxy S8 cell phone

This is a very important feature for me to have while I'm sleeping and only want to be disturbed by certain people.

Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Android's user interface is based on direct manipulation, using touch gestures that loosely correspond to real-world actions, such as swiping, tapping and pinching, to manipulate on-screen objects, along with a virtual keyboard for text input. In addition to touchscreen devices, variants of Android are also used on notebooks, game consoles, digital cameras, televisions, automobiles and other electronics.
