Gadget Goodies 5

One of the advantages of not being a “professional” reviewer is that, if I miss something or find out something new, I can go back without being concerned about my reputation as a reviewer being tarnished.  We’ll be doing that, today, along with the new stuff.  Once again, it’ll be a fun ride, so strap on your seatbelts and let’s get going.

I’ve been getting back into using linux, after a number of years away. And the experience has been interesting.  It’s given me a few thoughts on some of the available distros and why some might be a nice alternative to Win8, etc.  And how it narrowed my Bible software choices.

Whether you’re in business, ministry, have a busy life, or just need a little help keeping it all together, “there’s an app for that”.  One of my favorites is a gem called Pocket Informant.  I discovered it when I was using a Windows Mobile smartphone.  I also used the Blackberry version on OS6 and OS7, and the Android version.  It presently is available for iOS (two versions) and Android.  I’m sure there are some things special to iOS, but I’ve never had an iPhone or iPad, so I can’t say anything about those.

Last time, we only got to two Bible apps, both multi-platform.  There are more worth considering.  There’s one that’s cross platform, then we’ll talk about some others that are available.  I should probably mention that I do not and have not owned any Apple products.  So, anything that has a version for those, as well, is being reviewed here using a Blackberry, Android, Windows, or Linux version.

The Great Sequester

Sequester: Isolate or hide away (someone or something): "the artist sequestered himself in his studio for two years".  (Dictionary.com)


I repost some political things, from time to time, on social media.  And I usually try to share my thoughts and insights around election time.  Other than those, I usually avoid talking about politics.  But we’ve found ourselves in a government created disaster that needs some discussion.  So, here we go.
