Review on The Mayday Feature of Kindle Fire HDX

OK, here’s the crazy part. Besides the improved hardware, the biggest addition to the Kindle Fire line is the new Mayday button. Mayday is, simply, a button that appears in the drag-down settings panel at the top of the Fire’s screen. You press on the button, and a small square pops up in your screen indicating you’re in the Mayday queue. A few seconds later, a human head is saying hello, and asking how he or she can help you. It’s maybe the most convenient and impressive and potentially creepy and certainly audacious thing in recent memory.

The technician can then speak with you (your mic is active, but the camera isn’t, so they can’t see you) and guide you around the screen. They can see everything on the screen that you can, and draw lines or arrows, circle things, or even interact with the menus themselves if you authorize them to. So a technician could go in and raise or lower volume, pop into your audio library to show you where to find something, or literally anything else.

Security details were a bit vague—we saw that the video feed is paused while passwords are entered—but it’s unclear if you can restrict the content that a Mayday operative can see, like work emails or Shades of Grey or hardcore bondage selfies inspired by Shades of Grey.

To be clear, this is incredibly ambitious, and CEO Jeff Bezos said that Amazon expects to be inundated with calls when the HDX comes out (and almost definitely around the holidays), but overall is hoping to answer each call within 15 seconds. 15 seconds and you get a real human is talking to you, about anything you want—no convincing a computerized phone line or an unhelpful FAQ page that you really do need help. And certainly no scheduling a Genius Bar session. As goofy as this seems (and in person, it’s tremendously goofy, especially if you don’t know what to expect), this could totally change how customer service works.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Battery Reviews

Samsung Galaxy S4 Battery

Despite lacking the power saving features of the previously promised eight-core processor, Samsung Galaxy S4 battery life is excellent as the 2,600mAh battery easily traverses the dreaded one day hump that has become the plague of many a high-end smartphone. It’s a small capacity upgrade from the S3, and a welcome one.

Samsung claims 17 hours of talk time, and this slightly lofty goal rings near enough true with a full day’s substantial use of web browsing, gaming, email checking and more leaving enough reserves to satisfy a bit of video playback on the evening commute.

With little running in the background you can eek out 10 per cent of battery for much longer than expected – it’s definitely better than the Sony Xperia Z in the battery life stakes.

One area where the Samsung Galaxy S4 battery hits a slight stumbling block, however, is in its recharge times. Quick plug and goes are out of the question as the S4 requires several hours connected to the mains to get a decent charge. Although wireless charging options have been promised, they are not currently available.

Setting this issues aside, however, the Samsung Galaxy S4 battery does outlast the HTC One and Sony Xperia Z in similar conditions – a serious plus if battery life, as it is for most people, is important to you.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Connectivity

As well as the usual array of microUSB and microSD, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, the Samsung Galaxy S4 also has NFC and 4G – two options still relatively new to UK users.

With 4G currently on the verge of widespread availability in the UK, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is one of a number of premium handsets that, unlike the iPhone 5, will work on any 4G network in the UK once the likes of Three, O2 and Vodafone follow EE in launching 4G in the UK. Unlike on 3G, on 4G we streamed HD videos with no problems. Provided coverage is ok where you are, you’ll get to do the same.

Wi-Fi reception proved strong and reliable, with no issues with dropped connections or flagging speeds during our time with the phone. We haven’t had the chance to test the NFC connectivity options, but we will update the review in the near future to address this area.

8 Mini Tips For Extreme Couponers

1. Shop at more than one store.

The way extreme couponers are able to save 90% or more on their purchases is because they shop at multiple stores, multiple times. To save the most money, be willing to go to the store with the best sale for toilet paper. Don’t be loyal to only one store.

2. Make multiple transactions.

Extreme couponers will make multiple transactions to maximize savings, depending on the coupon. This would allow you to maximize savings if there is a limit of coupons per transaction. You can do this by asking the cashier if it’s ok to do so, if the line is short, or be willing to go to the back of the line or come back another time. Some extreme couponers will do their grocery shopping separately from their sales runs.

3. Plan out your shopping trips.

Instead of just heading out to the store, plan ahead to see what’s on sale and which coupons you can use. When you have a plan of what to buy and which coupons to use, shopping trips will be faster. And you won’t be stuck figuring things out at the store.

4. Shop with a store circular in hand.

Even if you know what you’re going to get and which coupons to use, sometimes you might not be sure which particular product the sale pertains to. For example, the 2.5 oz moisturizer is on sale but the 7 oz. version isn’t. With the store circular handy, you won’t have any surprises at the register.

5. When in doubt, ask.

Sometimes the store circular isn’t clear or has misprints. One times CVS printed that Aquafor was on sale for $1! But when I got to the store, it was actually only $1 off.

6. Use overages to get free stuff.

An overage is when a coupon is worth more than the product itself and the store gives you store credit towards something else you are buying. Not all areas or stores allow this. So check your store’s policy.

7. Use store rewards towards your next purchase.

When you earn store rewards, use them to your advantage. Don’t lose them because they’re like store credit. Use them towards your next purchase perhaps on items that never have coupons or never go on sale.

8. Stock up during a sale.

When something good is on sale, stock up! Get enough to last you until the next sale then you won’t have to run out and buy something at full price.
