    Do You Clean Your Screen?

    After purchasing a good microfiber cloth to clean the screens of my tablet and phone, I've come to the conclusion that cleaning my tablet's screen is a waste of time - if it's only fingerprints. Other stuff, such as food, should be removed, but fingerprints... nope. Not regularly, anyway. The...

    Strange "Matrix"-Like Display On Tablet

    A couple weeks ago, my Nextbook Ares 10 tablet went all "Matrix" on me. I was streaming YouTube just fine with the smaller screen size, when the video went all green and then began pixelating. After a few seconds, the whole tablet screen displayed a cascade of green pixels like the numbers in...

    Auto Update Settings

    I have auto update turned off and set it to send notification only. The updates work well and quickly. There is one con though, as soon as an update is available and a notification appears, the UI freezes and will not allow any touch screen input other than the update icon to proceed with...

    Google Calendar Event Description Tip

    I've been using the pre-installed Google Calendar to set Events and notifications. As soon as you tap the day to open, you're cursor is set on a line to describe the event. When you type fast the app adds unwanted periods, assuming you were ending a sentence. To get around having to retype...

    Some days streaming works great; other days are full of buffering and stops. On days with buffering and stops, I often get pop-ups stating ".. your device doesn't have enough bandwidth..". My device seems to have enough bandwidth most days when streaming works fine. So I'm asking: when they...

    Google Calendar Won't Awaken Tablet From Snooze

    I've been playing around with the Google Calendar app that came pre-installed. There's one thing I can't get it to do.. When I set an event alarm, it won't wake the tablet from snooze when it goes off - so I don't see or hear it. When I awaken it by pressing the power button the reminder is...

    New Tablet Guy

    Hello, all. I've been dissatisfied with cable offerings for a long time and finally made a move away from what THEY want me to watch, towards what I want to watch - so I bought my first tablet and went wireless. I don't have a smart phone yet. So far, so good. I can stream all of my favorite...

    Looking For HDMI-Y-Cable With Micro-HDMI Connector

    I have a relatively new Nextbook Ares 10 tablet (not the one with keyboard) with Marshmallow 6.0 from Walmart. I want to connect it to my TV via HDMI cable (a y-cable with tv-HDMI, USB, and micro-HDMI connectors), but all the ones I've seen have a micro-USB instead of micro-HDMI for tablet...
