QQ-Tech Mini Bluetooth keyboard with touchpad

 

I’ve been trying the QQ-Tech mini Bluetooth keyboard for a few months and it’s turned out to be a handy device.

 

The keyboard is powered by a rechargeable, internal LI battery.  The keyboard takes a mini-USB cable for charging.

The touchpad works well on connected devices.  I’ve tried it with my Android devices and my Windows Surface Pro 4 tablet.  The device provides several special character/feature capabilities that are difficult or unavailable using the Swype virtual keyboard I normally use on the Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

Android Lock Screen, Auto-Lock and Screen Timeout

December 3rd, 2014 Comments off

While preparing a Lunch-n-Learn at work I found that I wasn’t satisfied with finding a simple How-To on Android 4.4.2 Lock Screen, Passcode and Screen Timeout so I’m publishing this.

 

The first step we’ll undertake is setting a timeout for the Android display on the device.  To access the Setting menu pull down from the top of the display and choose the gear icon at the top right of the display.

You’ll scroll down the Settings menu until you see Device section and then look for Display.

I’m trying out the blogging client for Android on my new Samsung Note 2.  I upgraded to the Samsung S3 about two months ago and enjoyed it but I decided to give this beast a try and pass the great S3 to my wife. 

I find that I like this device; between it and my Tab 10.1 (yes, I do seem to like Samsung lately) I’m leaning more and more away from keyboards to touch interfaces. 

If it wasn’t for my career in technology and gaming from my PC I think I could make a switch to mobile platforms like this.  Both the S3 & the Note 2 have quad core CPUs with 2gb of RAM.
