iPhone WiFi or Bluetooth Automatically Turns Back On? Here’s Why and What to Do About It

Ever since the update to iOS 11, people have been stymied as to why, after they turn off bluetooth or wifi, it magically (and annoyingly) turns itself back on.

And at least one pundit factors smartphones and mobile apps into why the gig economy is growing.

Bluetooth Selfie Remote to Take Selfies

We recently had an opportunity to review this wireless bluetooth selfie remote for iPhone and Android, and its selfie remote app, and it’s a great addition to your selfie-taking bag of tricks! And it does so much more than just selfie remote shutter control – you can switch between front and back cameras, zoom in and out, turn the flash on and off, even switch between photo and video!

Facebook’s New “See First” Gives You Control Over Who You See on Your News Feed

Facebook has just announced, and started to roll out, their new See First setting, which gives you control over who gets priority in your Facebook news feed timeline. While the announcements today say that it is being rolled out to iOS today, and Android and the web later, some folks, including us, have it on the web right now (and yes, we rubbed our hands with glee when we discovered that).
