A month of events with Comcast - I just thought I’d share the month I had with Comcast. For the record I have Comcast business at work (IT manager,) and Xfinity something or other at home (also Comcast). Based on my timesheet, call logs, mileage logs, and incident reports at work, here’s what has turned out to be an otherwise average month for me in my relations with Comcast. This is an example of why so many people are desperate to get Google Fiber or anyone but Comcast. If your service wo...

Marsboy Portable Orb Bluetooth Speaker review - The Marsboy Portable Orb  Series Bluetooth 4.1 speaker is most of what you’d expect in a speaker and a bit more that’s kind of useful. Besides being your standard stereo bluetooth 4.1 speaker with a lightshow and speakerphone built in, it also has the ability to play music in a couple of ways without a smart device attached. The first way is the old line-in standard in which you save a bit of Bluetooth juice, but still have to have another dev...

Save some juice with Craig’s Battery Saver ROOT - Craig’s Battery Saver ROOT is yet another root application that helps you save some battery, but it seems to do the trick and works combined with others for greater savings. The premise is pretty simple – when the screen goes off you don’t need anything but notifications. GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth get disabled, you’ll still receive push notifications via carrier connection, but that’s about it. When the screen comes back on it fires the connectio...
Craig's Battery Saver ROOT offers a slightly different approach to battery management. Whether it's better or worse will depend on your use scenarios.

Google Photos 1.6 released, awesome - Google Photos released version 1.6 a day or so back and it finally allows you to tag people and give them names. More than just tagging people that Google probably already knew, it allows you to take pictures it miscategorized as a different person, and merge them to the right person. It’s finally possible with Google Photos to enter a search term “Maggie in a car” or “Maggie and Connor October 2014” and see photos that correspond to Google’s recognitio...
Google Photos 1.6 now allows for tagging faces, searching by faces and recognized items, and searching for groups of people. It's flippin' sweet

Google announcements include new Chromecasts, Nexus devices - Just a quick little overview of some of the announcements from Google today The Nexus 6P There’s a couple of new Nexus phones coming out, one is the Nexus 6P, and it seems to be incorporating HTC’s fat pixel technology along with USB type-C and a 3450mAh battery. It’s also a giant metal phone like the HTC flagships and presumably won’t do Qi charging. As with HTC’s failed fat pixel cameras, the resolution is a little on the lower...

16 premium titles up for 10 cents on Google Play - If you’ve got $1.60 burning a hole in your Google Play balance there are 16 premium games up on Google Play right now from EA and Chilligo. They only list 13 of them on the Play promo page linked below (I’m guessing to be spooky for Halloween,) but you can click on the developer name and find three more priced at a dime. These include EA titles: Dead Space Monopoly Need for Speed And Chillingo titles: Bloodstroke Contre Jour Fleece Lightnin...

Limited edition pink HTC One M9s out now - While the new ribboned or ribbonless Pike HTC One M9s may not make it into the Pinkwashing Hall of Shame, the premise is that by purchasing one you’re supporting the fight against breast cancer. No, you’re buying a pink phone. No matter how many pink phones you buy, the donation from HTC is going to be $25,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. You can choose to not buy a pink HTC One M9 and they’re still in for $25,000. If you’re getting th...
A limited edition Pink HTC One M9 is being released ostensibly to support breast cancer awareness. It comes with $100 Google Play Credit, a pink dot case.

So what’s the deal with Pocketables? - example of a mobile-unfriendly site that writes about mobile devices As I’ve been receiving a lot more email about this than I’d ever have imagined after a month and a half of Pocketables being the Paul Show, I thought I’d give a little update on what’s going on with the site and authors. Some of this you know from previous posts, some will probably be new to you. If we all disappear, you’ll know what happened. This post is all over the place, from sea...
Whatever happened to GoodAndEVO? What's happening to Pocketables?

CHOETECH dual USB Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 car charger review
The CHOETECH C0046 Dual USB Car Charger came as a little bit of a disappointment to me as I was expecting a device with two functioning Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 USB ports and instead this has one, and a second port that’s a standard 2.4amp USB charger. It’s not too shabby, but not quite what [&hellip

1byone Bluetooth speaker and LED bulb review - If you’ve ever looked at a lightbulb and thought that there was room for improvement, it’s finally here in the 1byone Bluetooth speaker and LED bulb. The 1byone Bluetooth speaker and LED bulb screws into a regular light socket and then is controlled by a smartphone if you want to do anything fancy with it. It can play music pretty well and at a distance, and changes colors and brightness from the app. I’ve currently removed a rather large speak...

Introduction
Pocketables is a US-based online tech magazine that brings news, insights, opinions, and comprehensive reviews on various mobile computing devices, portable technology, and related topics to a global audience. We focus on devices that fit into pockets of all sizes, from jeans and jackets to backpacks and purses.
