Hmmm, AT&T Did Something To My Phone


Bill Hensley's Random Blog

I have a Galaxy S3, and my carrier is AT&T. Last Thursday, the phone was persistently and annoyingly nagging me about a new (and apparently significant) update.

I was on travel and didn’t want to upgrade my phone in the airport, so I kept canceling the update. I let it update in the hotel that evening.

Some of the phone pages changed. But one thing that is apparent is that my battery life has dropped significantly. I could usually rely on the phone to go from 100% charged down to 40% or so after a day of use, but the past couple days, it has plummeted south of 20% (today, by 1545). So something Ma Bell has done isn’t good.

Five Tech Essentials Every Business Should Have Katerina Roemer

Very informative and also good advice for any business.


When investing in new technology for your business, it can sometimes be difficult to determine what is essential, what would be nice to have and what can be left off the list. As different systems can help boost productivity and efficiency in the workplace, it is important to make the distinction between what your business needs and what can wait. To help in making these decisions, here are a few technologies that no business should be without:

This is an easy one. If every employee in your business is not equipped with at least a desktop computer to work from, there is a fatal flaw within the organization. However, many workplaces are also investing in mobile technology for their employees. As an increasing number of companies allow individuals to work from home or from other locations, these devices have become paramount to mobile workforce success.

Google’s Pro-Gay Doodle Features Olympic Athletes

Reasons why I love Google. 🙂

(CNN) — Google has made a bold statement against discrimination on its home page.

The search giant’s rainbow Olympic-themed logo, posted to mark the first day of the Sochi Winter Games, sends a powerful message of support for not only gay athletes competing in the games, but for the gay community at large and its supporters.

The company often changes its logo to reflect current events or to mark significant anniversaries. The latest “Google doodle” features images of athletes involved in Winter Olympic events, against a backdrop colored like the rainbow flag, the adopted symbol of the movement for gay rights.

Unlike the current iteration, Google doodles usually conform to the company logo’s color scheme.

Under the search bar, the company quotes the Olympic Charter, which promises all athletes the right to practice sport.

“The practice of sport is a human right. Every individual must have the possibility of practicing…

Graduation is on the Horizon!

Graduation is on the Horizon!

Well guys, my last day of school is May 10th, followed by my first graduation ceremony on May 14th, and my Commencement on May 30th. I am absolutely pumped for it. All of these years of hard work are about to pay off, and a new chapter of my life is starting. I’m so excited.

Texas, Y’all! (Updated 7/12/2011)

As some of you may know, I have been in Texas since June 3rd for a vacation. I have to say, Texas is a wonderful state full of great people, and down home fun. So far, I’ve went to the Alamo, cruised down the river walk in San Antonio, and went to Corpus Christi and swam in the ocean for the first time in my life. I can’t begin to say how much I like this state. The lifestyle, weather, people, and landscape are so different than that of Ohio.

I really enjoy the different cultures down here, as well. Since we are closer to Mexico, there are more Spanish people here. Immersing myself in their culture has been a different, but quite fun experience. The Spanish food and people are great. Of course there is a bit of a language barrier, but my one year of Spanish class helps a bit!
I will be leaving for Ohio on June 22nd, however. While Texas is a fun experience, there is nothing like home.
