I don’t and won’t have a Galaxy Gear so can I please disable the stupid app on my phone!?
Welcome to the new residents!
The weather outside is frightful but the firmware inside delightful
Checking out the snow
|Hangouts: SMS on the left and messages on the right|
When I reject a call I often reject with a message – a text or SMS message. So when the person responds it’s via SMS, so if I have a Hangout with that person it gets messy, there’s no continuity.
Also, SMS messages used to produce a lock-screen short-cut for quick access but not any more with Hangouts! I know there’s some bearable work-arounds but the experience has definitely been diminished.
And from my PC or tablet I still need to use MightyText to send SMS (to people who don’t use Hangouts). Google should just buy MightText and integrate their functionality into Hangouts (and SMS Backup+ too while they’re at it – those apps provide essential functionality and they deserve more money than they make from their apps).
So basically, there’s fragmentation everywhere!!!
Ugh! Let see what are the alternatives to the stock messaging app and what they’re like. See what I did there? That’s called foreshadowing! So stay tuned…

Awesome sunset thanks to the low clouds
- 1 ½ cups flour (can use whole wheat)
- 2 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt (optional)
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tbsp butter or shortening
- ¼ tsp vanilla (optional)
- Mix all ingredients together
- Make sure the mix is consistent and there are no lumps
- Heat the pan to a medium heat
- Pour large drops into a non-stick or greased frying pan
- Turn once during frying so both sides are golden
You can keep the pancakes warm in the oven while cooking them and then serve everyone at the same time. Garnish with maple syrup, cinnamon, or cake sprinkles!
And if you don’t finish the whole batch this breakfast, then put the left-overs into a freezer bag and save for another day. Just pop them in the toaster and they’re ready in no time.
