New year – New OS, Deepin Linux for me

Deepin Desktop
Hi there everyone, it’s been a while since I last made a post. The year 2017 has been one of the worst years of my life, a lot has happened, and I really had no time or desire to post anything.

After a brutal year for me and the help of some good friends, I’m back from the dead and looking forward to the future.

Being a computer geek as I am, What a better way to start a new year, than a brand new OS? (Operating System).

For a while now I have been getting bored with Windows a little bit, besides my last installation of Windows 10 was giving me way too many headaches, so I decided it was time for a change.

Two months ago I decided to give Linux another try after years of not looking into the Linux world a lot, after reviewing some videos in YouTube, I again came across this Chinese Linux distro called “Deepin”, it looked good on video and to be honest I instantly felt attracted to it in a big way, the interface looked just beautiful.

Since the computer screen is something I look at for many hours a day I want it to look beautiful, so yeah, I decided to give Deepin a try and here I am.

I reformatted my entire drive and installed Deepin OS on it, so far I’m loving it and haven’t looked back, my Surface book still has Windows 10 on it. so I haven’t said Goodbye to Windows just yet, but my daily drive desktop runs Linux now and I’m simply in love with it.

In future posts I will update you guys on how my experience with Deepin has been so far.

For now I just want to wish you all a happy new year 2018!

Nexus 6P How to fix the yellow tint screen issue

Nexus 6PJust a few days after purchasing my Nexus 6P I couldn’t help it but notice the screen on my precious 6P had a slightly yellowish tint on the screen, first I tried to ignore it, I thought perhaps it was just my imagination or the type of graphics or pages I was looking at, but after a few more days I was convinced there was an issue with my Nexus 6P,  pages with totally white backgrounds looked slightly yellowish.

Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love this phone and I believe it’s simply the best phone I have ever had, I would buy it again in an instant, but this tint issue needed fixing,

The Fix

After researching a lot I could not come up with a solution, many people commented on the internet about how increasing the brightness of the device seemed to make the problem go away, but here I was increasing brightness to %100 with no improvement outcome, it became clear to me that brightness had nothing to do with the yellow tint on the screen.

That’s when it occurred to me that perhaps I should look into the store and find an app that would let me configure device settings other than just brightness,  after some searching on the store I found an application called “Screen Adjuster Free”.

The best VOIP around

Ooma Telo

This is my review of the Ooma VOIP system, sold in the US and which has been regarded as number one by many people across the nation according to Ooma itself and they have sources to prove it, if you don’t believe me head to Ooma.com right now and check it out by yourself.

What’s great about it: Quality, Design, Features, Sound, among many other things I will explain as you read on.

What’s not so great: No caller ID with name on the free version of the service. (for some other not so great and minor annoyances with Ooma check the items mark in red in the rest of this article)

I have been using Ooma for almost two years now and I wonder why I didn’t get this sooner, the Ooma Telo is a top of the line product, it allows you to have free phone service and make free calls in the US even if you take the device overseas, you just pay a small tax monthly fee (Required by the government not Ooma) in my case I pay just $ 3.71 a month, that’s less than four bucks a month in taxes for the service! this fee varies depending on the area you live.

The free version of the service (where you pay only the monthly taxes required by the government) includes the following standard features:
