Getting Music (MP3) to your Nexus 7

 Plug in your Nexus 7. Open the folder view from your OS (i.e. in Windows, use Windows Explorer, in Mac use Finder), double click Internal Storage then again on Music. This is where you need to copy and paste all your music too.

Google Nexus 7 – Tips and Tricks #2 – Rotation

August 14th, 2012 · No Comments

Rotation

The Google Nexus 7 home screen is set in portrait mode, but you can rotate other screens by turning the screen rotation lock off. 

To do this, swipe down from the top of the screen to access notifications and then click on the icon that has the two arrows forming a circle.  If you see a padlock in the circle it means your screen is locked.  If you see an icon with a rectangle you can rotate your Nexus 7 screen – with the exception of the home screen.

Or you can pay for an App. Or try a free App – Rotation Locker

Free cloud storage for your important files

April 7th, 2012 · No Comments

How are you saving the things that matter to you? A harddisk crash can happen pretty damn quick and it can cost a lot of money to get back vital files. I’ve had this happen. So for the files that matter, I’ve switched to cloud storage – Dropbox. For example, over on my other website, StoryAWeek, I have the HTML stored with my webhost, and my actual stories, which are a mixture of different file formats stored on Dropbox.

Why?

If my harddrive fails, the files are easy and FREE for me to get back. If I have a house fire, or a break-in, same applies; I get my work back to me.

If you are not using cloud storage yet, why not? You really should.
