Initial Impressions with The SwingTip Golf Swing Analyzer by Mobiplex

swingtip010812[1]

 

Ever wished there was a way you can look at your swing on a computer just like at the golf store swing simulator?  Well, here is something that I picked up to see how good it is.  The SwingTIP Wireless Golf Swing Analyzer by Mobiplex, Inc.  It’s a little bluetooth device the size of a bottle of eye drops that you attach to the golf shaft right below your grip.  The reason I am taking a look at this device is that it is compatible with Apple iOS and Android 2.3 and above.  Since I only own every Android device ever made, that was an important criteria in purchasing a swing analyzer that works with Android.

Don’t Fall For Cheap Tablets

NoTablet

This week the world descended on Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show.  After seeing the tablets unveiled there, I felt compelled to write a commentary about tablets.  Over Christmas break, a lot of family members purchased cheap Android tablets for their family members and kids.  Well, low and behold I spent most of my Christmas trying to help and explain to people why they cannot install Angry Birds on their tablet.

My Thoughts on How to Correct the Motorola Bionic Debacle


As an owner of the Motorola Droid Bionic, I am understandably frustrated.  I was one of the early adopters of this phone because for a long time it was touted as the greatest thing to happen to the smartphone industry.  In all fairness, the Bionic is a good phone.  It has some hardware flaws but the biggest flaw of them all is the software.  Read moreRead more

Complications with Flashing Galaxy Nexus Factory Images and Windows7 64-bit

If you own a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, chances are you have had a chance to tinker with the adb/fastboot command line stuff.  Countless websites on the internet have documented how to unlock the bootloader, root, unroot, and relock the bootloader.  I am going to address the issues I had loading the stock factory image back onto the Galaxy Nexus.

My Quick Thought on the iPhone5

I know I might be an Android fanboy or Apple hater but I seriously was interested in what Apple was going to release in the iPhone5. Everyone knows that competition is healthy (except for Apple and their lawyers) and competition brings ingenuity. Apple was a company that pushed the envelop and brought “state of the art” technology to the consumers. However, they have been kind of slacking lately. Read moreRead more

You Should Consider the Asus Google Nexus 7 as Your Next Tablet Purchase

So I have been holding out on purchasing a tablet mainly because of price. I really did not want to fork out over $400+ to obtain an iPad and I definitely did not want to cough up $500+ for an Android tablet.

Verizon’s New Share Everything Plans

Verizon announced today their new Family Shared plan which allows you to share your data between all the smartphone lines you have on your account.  This idea originally sounded great.  However, since I currently have unlimited data, this new plan stings a little.  A look at my data usage, I average about 2-3 Gb of data a month and my wife averages under 2 Gb a month.  So if I wanted to add another smartphone to my plan for other family members, this pricing structure might not be too bad as long as we do not all stream Youtube, Pandora, HBOGo, and other video streaming services all the time.  Below is the Verizon pricing structure.

4G/LTE Expanded in Tucson?

Although not announced, it looks like the reach of 4G/LTE in Tucson has gotten stronger.  At one time Verizon Wireless claims I lived in a area of extended coverage.  Well, that meant I did not have 4G coverage.  Well for the last week and a half, I have had consistent 2 bars of 4G on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Motorola Droid Bionic.  Even though I appreciate the super fast download speeds, I have had to change the battery at home more frequently.  Nevertheless, I finally get to use what I have been paying for.
