I only go to facebook if I'm at home and a computer.   But if I were to use it with my phone or tablet, I'd only do so from the browser. I'm thinking the same when it comes to twitter. I hardly use it.   

My old Android phone, I didn't even have G+ on it.
As it TOO is a hog. 
 
I don't use the Facebook mobile app for many of the reasons enumerated in this article. I also don't trust their freewheeling attitude towards user privacy.

If you're an Android user, open Facebook's mobile site in the Chrome browser, click on the menu, and add the site to your desktop. You'll get a nice little icon on your home screen, just like you would for an app, and it won't eat your battery or kill performance.
Even if you're someone who's addicted to Facebook, you really ought to consider just accessing it through your mobile browser. Business Insider directs our attention to antivirus software firm AVG'...

I removed the app a while ago since it was always slowing down my device and no matter what the settings were it seemed to be high on the battery usage list. I added a bookmark on the home screen to the mobile web site and setup a IFTTT rule to notify me of any notifications (Facebook RSS notifications feed to Android notifications). I haven't looked back since!

Yea, I'm not on the bleeding edge of Phone Tech.  But I have to say that I'm enjoying the new Moto e that I picked up.  Would've been nice if it had a rear facing camera, but I really don't do the hangouts much anyway.  I can use my tablet or computer for that.

Microsoft continues its slide into irrelevance, as least as far as consumer tech is concerned. Even the company’s successes, like the Surface Pro, are only relative successes. No matter how hopeful sales figures for the Pro may look, the device is still…

+Roland Hess I was talking about the leading position each company has or had in the industry. Neither IBM or MS have that position any more. Apple seems to be the industry leader by a nose from Google, but how long for.

I don't care how "nice" google makes inbox, or whatever it is that they come up with.  I don't want it. I want my email filtered of spam, and in a nice liner line in the order in which it showed up.  _ I _ want to be able to filter it.  I want to pick what gets through, or dumped into whatever filter I have created.
Gmail represents a dying class of products that, like Google Reader, puts control in the hands of users, not signal-harvesting algorithms.

I felt much the same way about Inbox until I tried it. It did require some initial "training" (the default filters Google put in place weren't quite configured the way I wanted), but using Inbox has significantly improved the speed with which I can deal with my email.

I think the main annoyance with email for me is the way that so many people/companies overuse it. I don't need to be CC'ed on half the discussions that show up at work. I don't want the "because you bought/watched/listened to X we think you'll be interested in Y" messages. I definitely don't want the spam from people and companies I've never heard of! Unfortunately, I suspect that a former work colleague is correct. Such abuses of email will never go away unless/until there is some sort of cost associated with each message, thereby reducing the benefit of "low value" messages like those mentioned above.

Fun place to visit. Tasty, Tasty Pizza. The Meatball appetizer was superb. Looked like they had a few options to choose from, if you were a vegetarian too. I can't comment on the Wine or other Spirits, as we don't drink. But it would be nice if they had some top shelf Ginger Ale, like Vernors, or IBC Root Beers.

We go there for their burgers. Yummy, Tasty, Burgers. You also get a fried Pickle. They have a great menu. One doesn't have to drink to enjoy a visit to the Beer Engine. BUT! I would recommend though that they carry Vernors Ginger Ale, and IBC Root Beer.

Cleveland Clinic Discount. - If you have to go to the Cleveland Clinic nearby, you should ask about it, I over heard the friendly and polite, daytime front desk clerk talking to someone about it. A good thing, if you or a family member have to go to the clinic. - I found the Hotel to my liking when I stayed there. I would stay again, and highly recommend it. R_ Recently updated their WiFi so more rooms get a better connection.

Their burgers and other food are tasty, but they seem to be a little pricey. Could be due to the fact that they have Monogrammed Plastic Cups, Napkins, etc, etc... I could care less If their plastic ware has their name on it. Staff friendly also. Half Price Burger Wednesdays are a good time to go check them out.

I've had to visit Dr Francis a couple of times due to my need of tooth extractions. Both times he personally called me the evening of my oral surgery to check up on me. A nice personal touch. :) Granted loosing teeth isn't my favorite occupation, but he does a great job of letting you know of what your other options are if you're missing / loosing teeth that you feel you need to replace. His whole staff was friendly and courteous.
