FREE Self Managing Android Battery Saving App

May 11, 2014

[FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] FREE Self Managing Android Battery Saving App – I am big on the Android Smartphones; currently owning a Nexus 5. It has become (literally) my computer in my pocket; however, I learned early on that it is important to monitor its’ battery life on a daily basis in order to get the most out of my computer in my pocket. To assist me with this task is the FREE Android App called Battery Doctor (Battery Saver).

Battery Doctor

I have been using this app for quite awhile and can attest that it will significantly improve your battery life. It is smart in that it self manages and optimizes your phone in a way that it will shutdown battery eating background apps and hardware (such as bluetooth, wifi, etc…) when these components are not in use (or are not needed). There is also power management features built into the app  to let you know how much power your apps are consuming, how much battery is left, when is a good time to charge and when not too charge.

Overall, one of my favorite utilities on my phone that I highly recommend.

Next Version Of DuckDuckGo Focuses On Smarter Answers AND A More Refined Looks

May 7, 2014

[FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] Next Version Of DuckDuckGo Focuses On Smarter Answers AND A More Refined Looks – Most of us, when performing a search on the internet, go with the big players such as Google, Bing and Yahoo (to name a few). A search engine option that I want you take a look at that actually is comparable or better in terms of search results is the search engine called DuckDuckGo.

DuckDuckGo

Where DuckDuckGo really excels, is that it is a search engine with privacy in mind. Unlike the big players, DuckDuckGo does not profile and track you.

Recently, through the DuckDuckGo Community Platform, I learned that the next version of DuckDuckGo is in beta and can be tested [here].

This version of DuckDuckGo focuses on smarter answers and a more refined look. New features like images, auto-suggest, places and more. Of course, your privacy is protected, with this version, as well!
