TommyLog TECH – Apple Pay vs. Samsung Pay #vzwbuzz #AD

Hey Kids it’s Tommy and for today’s TommyLog TECH I want to take a look at and talk about Samsung Pay versus Apple Pay. One has a head-start on the other, and one has some pretty neat features that might surprise you.

As I put the two payment systems head to head,  I talk about what exactly is NFC? Which system is easier to use? What are the differences between Samsung Pay and Apple Pay. Which is the most secure?

Watch the head-to-head showdown to see who wins and which one is Tommy approved.

UPDATE – 11-14-15 – In doing more research, I was wrong about Samsung Pay magnetic secure transmission (MST). It utilized digital tokens and is just as secure as NFC transactions.

DISCLAIMER — I’m one of the cool kids who has been asked to play with and test technology for Verizon. They asked me to test and share my thoughts. All my words are original and my own.]


TommyLog TECH – Spring Cleaning Your IOS Device

Spring CleaningHey kids, it’s Tommy and for today’s TommyLog TECH I want to talk about doing a little spring cleaning on your IOS devise. Last night I was watching a movie with my sweetheart on my iPad. A quarter of the way though the movie I got an error message saying that I was out of memory. How could that be?  I have a 32 GB IPad Air and I should have plenty of free storage space.

Well enough of this, I’m going to do some spring cleaning here. What I did applies to any late model IOS device, iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone.

First you need to make sure you have a good backup. I use Apple’s iCloud service  but you can use iTunes too. Here’s a great article from apple on backing up you iDevice https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203977

After you have verified and backed up your devise you need to reset it. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201274

After resetting, reload your saved settings and apps from either your iCloud or iTunes backup and BAM!

It’s that simple- and welcome back free space 🙂 BEFORE 1.25 GB free space – AFTER 15.4 GB free space.

TommyLog – Just be Nice, It Gets You More

Hey Kids, Welcome to Atlanta. I’m visiting Uncle Andy and participating in the 2013 Graphic Users Association meeting here in Hot-lanta. Actually the weather is super nice and I’m enjoying it all. Had a few experiences that I want to share. First, the battery on my iPhone 5 was giving me troubles. After the latest IOS update, the battery life seemed to be a lot less than before. I went to the apple store and met this nicest gal names Lana. She took the best care of us. One thing to know, few smiles and a thank you or 2 really gets you far. She ended up replacing my iPhone with a brand new one..and I wasn’t even expecting that.

Secondly we met the social media coordinator for the Gwinnett  Braves AAA baseball organization. She was so nice and gave us the BEST seats for last nights game.We talked social media and even met the general manager. So much fun had by all… and mostly al this was possible because we were nice.

Sometimes nice people finish first!
