NOTRECOMMENDED: Google pixel — factory reset

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

Sorry but I had to do a factory reset on my Google pixel phone.

It forgot my pin. I remember it. But it was lost.

Last night, for dinner, because I’d stopped at Quik Chek #quickchek for some Half & Half, I bought a ham sandwich with lettuce and russian dressing. It was almost inedible. In comparison to the sandwich I usually get at Wawa (#wawa Wawa #912), there was no comparison. Wawa allows you to get just the bread toasted. Quick Chek toasts something but I couldn’t figure out what; it was cold. The meat on the Quik Chek sandwich was just plopped on it as a mass; Wawa places individual slices. In fairness, Quik Chek does offer russian dressing; I don’t think Wawa does. I know Quik Chek charged me more than Wawa does, but I don’t have the receipts from each. Sigh! So FWIW, I won’t be buying subs from Quik Chek again. YMMV!

Sorry, but MAILCHIP snagged my alumni news letter for some type of spam. It’s been months since I replied to their support about it. No response. 

But plenty of sales emails.

Be forewarned. “Free” isn’t; “paid” may be treated just as bad.

Maybe that might have been mentioned BEFORE I bought it.

Guess I’ll send it to the College “young lady” who has my WINDOZE laptop.

The products — livescribe3 and sky wifi — are both “interesting”!

My use of them was “disappointing”.

And, the “customer service” is 1 for 3 in successful uses.

Also, the “technical support” was slow to respond and very formulaic.

I will be consigning these to the “dust bin”.

Yell, if you want to borrow or buy them.

Cruise line refuses to re-book family vacation after boy diagnosed with cancer
Published July 27, 2014

*** begin quote ***

A cruise ship is refusing to let a New York couple re-book a dream summer vacation after their 5-year-old boy was unable to go on the trip because he was diagnosed with cancer.

The parents of Nicolas Colucci say Norwegian Cruise Line is refusing to accommodate them, citing its cancellation policy.

The family-friendly cruise, in partnership with the Nickelodeon channel, was scheduled to start on June 1, but Nicolas got sick on May 19. He was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in his liver, and had surgery a few days later. He is still undergoing chemotherapy.

The cruise line says any cancellation within 14 days or less of the sail date is subject to a 100 percent cancellation fee. Now, the boy’s family is out $4,000.

*** end quote ***

I have cruised on NCL.

I would have used them again.

Not now. Not ever.

NOTRECOMMENDED: Google’s GDRIVE while live; when uninstalled leaves a mess. NOT GA; use only if you’re on the “bleeding edge”!

Looks interesting as a DROPBOX competitor.

I can’t tell if it uses real hard drive space. (It must.) 

So it’s behind DROPBOX. (You can tell DROPBOX that you don’t want a local copy.)

Also, it copies to the local drive all the docs on the GOOGLE_DOC account. (I don’t want them all on local. That’s why I put them up on GOOGLE in the first place Argh!)

Jury is still out!

GDRIVE puts down a “footprint” on your machine. I don’t know what all that crud it but in my case it’s two or three GIG!

Even uninstalling with APPCLEANER doesn’t remove the “footprints” (i.e., at least two directories with big files). One of which is PICASSA related if your believe the directory names.

I’d classify this as alpha software and leaving it the “bleeding edge” folks until it gets more exposure and “testing”. 

It’s imho NOT ready for prime time use.
