If you’re planning to upgrade your smartphone check out Mind Of Geek’s detailed review of the Samsung Galaxy Note® II,
“Samsung has again delivered a device like no other with the Samsung Galaxy Note II. The second generation of the Samsung Galaxy Note, the phone that brought the term “phablet” to the mouths of millions of smartphone users and fans, capitalizes on what made the first-generation Galaxy Note (see our full review here) great by improving it inside and out.
The Galaxy Note II, if you are OK with the possibility of having to use Bluetooth often (or you have extra large hands) is a great device, one of the best we’ve ever tested. The Multi-Window feature brings a whole new experience to using a smartphone, and had me hoping that someday, someday, we may see this feature on smaller handsets, and admittedly on iOS (especially the iPad or iPad Mini).”
As part of the leadership team for Greater Philadelphia Search and Rescue (GPSAR), a volunteer group dedicated to finding lost persons, Mark Hopkins understands the importance of being connected. A matter of seconds can be the difference between life and death for a missing person, and fast, reliable communication within the search party is key to being effective.
Verizon Wireless is helping the GPSAR organization carry out its important work by providing 4G LTE technology and devices like the Droid RAZR Maxx and Verizon JetPack. Now, whether GPSAR is working out of a car or out in the field on a search, they have vital tools at their fingertips.
“The speed of 4G LTE is an advantage, and the network works in more places that I would have thought and is growing every day. Verizon Wireless 4G LTE has really become invaluable to Greater Philadelphia Search and Rescue.”

“The results of a new Tech Bargains survey were recently released, and they show that 53% of consumers will spend more than half of their holiday shopping budgets on electronic devices. Of the tech gifts people expect to buy, tablets are, not surprisingly, the most-wanted items of the year.
What is surprising is exactly which tablets customers are expecting to buy. 33% of those surveyed expect to buy Google’s Nexus 7 tablet, while only 30% expect to buy an iPad. The iPad Mini and Kindle Fire HD are tied in the survey, with 24% of respondents expecting to buy each, and 12% will be buying the Microsoft Surface hybrid laptop/tablet device.

By 2020, 160 million Americans will be monitored and treated remotely for at least one chronic condition. According to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), mobile health technology, or “mHealth,” should be fully incorporated into the healthcare industry at every level by 2017. This includes adoption of not only mHealth, solutions, but also technologies that will improve patient care and efficiency throughout the industry. Check out the below infographic for more on “mHealth.”
Chances are you’re familiar with the 4-H Club, you’ve stayed in a four-star hotel and you can name a four-star general. But what do you know about 4G? For those only vaguely familiar with the term 4G, it refers to the fourth and latest generation technology for data access over cellular networks. 4G wireless networks are much faster than 3G networks and provide more capacity (or bandwidth) needed to access all the applications and programs now available on smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.
Two key advantages of 4G LTE are its incredible bandwidth and its ultrafast speed, enabling the user and businesses to access the Internet from a mobile device as quickly and seamlessly as you do from the computer in your office.
