If I recall correctly, the Chromebooks use Google's OS Chromium which is designed to be a cloud/internet based operating system. I think all apps are online. There may be a way such as installing a different OS, but it's not known to me.

Why does my straight talk samsung galaxy s3 get so hot?


Lots of phones get hot, it all depends on what apps you have running and talk time. When you run wifi and bluetooth it uses up power an many phones run hot. In my opinion to hot. My Fire Phone runs hot and the battery lasts shorter than my older phone without all this extra apps. If you turn off bluetooth it will be less hot and if you dont need wifi all the time turn it off until you do need it. No way around this one.

How To Save Battery On Your iPhone or iPod Touch


<p><span><span> </span>Is your iPhone or iPod Touch's battery level always depleting quickly? Do you not have enough juice to get you through the day? Here are some quick tips to conserve your battery life and help you get through the day while you are Facebooking, sending texts, and calling.</span><br /> <p><span><span> </span>First, lets make sure you can monitor your batter level. This is how you will turn on the percentage of battery display.</span><br /> <p><span>1.<span> </span></span><span>Go to your home-screen.</span><br /> <p><span>2.<span> </span></span><span>Open up the Settings App.</span><br /> <p><span>3.<span> </span></span><span>Tap General then Usage</span><br /> <p><span>4.<span> </span></span><span>Where it says battery percentage, make sure the switch is in the on position.</span><br /> <p><span><span> </span>Now that you can monitor your battery life, here are a few things you should continually do to save battery.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Don't keep multiple apps running if you don't have to. iPhones and iPod Touches have multitasking to run multiple apps at once, but this can use a lot of battery. To delete tasks, double tap the home button and then hold down an icon at the bottom of the screen. Once the apps begin to wiggle, tap the X by the app to stop the task (note: this won't delete the app, it will only stop it from running).</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Another battery saving setting is not fetching email quite as often, I mean, do you really need to check your email every 15 minutes or hour? Fetching data uses a lot of battery, to disable or not as frequently fetch for data, go to the Settings app again. Go to Mail, Contacts, Calendars then Fetch New Data and set it to Manually so to check email, go to the email app and click the refresh button.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Your iPhone has an adjustable brightness, and a higher brightness wastes more battery, to change the brightness: go to your Settings app. Go to Brightness and turn your brightness down. You don't necessarily need to turn it all the way down(especially when you are in bright lighting conditions, kind of ironic that you need higher brightnesses in brighter environments), but if you are in a pitch black room, then there is no reason to have the brightness above the minimum level.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Another good habit is turning off bluetooth and wifi when you are not using them, to do this, go to your Settings app again. Go to Wi-Fi and turn of wifi. To turn of bluetooth, go to General then Bluetooth and turn it off.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>If you don't necessarily use an app a lot or at all, turn off Push Notifications. To do this scroll all the way down on your Settings app, and choose that particular app. This will only be useful on an app that gets information from the internet. In the particular app that you chose, usually there will be a Push Notifications option, and you can disable this, this will help your battery because your iPhone constantly tries to search for data with these on. Also, when installing apps, you can disable this then.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Another good way to save battery (iPhone only) is to switch from the 3g(fast internet)radio to Edge(slower internet) radio. On the iPhone, you have twice as much battery with Edge radio. To change between the two, go to your Settings app once again. Go to General then Network and where it says Enable 3g switch it to off. You can/should do this when you aren't heavily surfing the internet, checking Facebook, or downloading apps. Don't use this with apps that require heavy internet usage.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>One final tip to conserve battery is changing the amount of time until the iPhone/iPod Touch goes into sleep mode. If you forget to put it in sleep mode, it will stay on and waste battery in your pocket, etc. To change the amount of time to save battery, go to your Settings app again. Go to General then Auto-Lock and change it to something short such as 1 or 2 minutes.</span><br /> <p><span>These tips will significantly prolong your battery, use them to your advantage.</span><br />

My phone freezes up mostly when I'm online. It doesn't matter whether I'm on wifi or not.


If it freezes up during using an app, then you are using to much memory. Also, you can hard reboot it. Download the free app called iPhone tricks and tips. It shows you how to get around things like that. Things that are not in the manual.

I don't know how to take photos on my nexus 7


The Nexus 7 does not come with a built in camera app. I guess Google figures since there is only a front-facing camera that folks won't be taking too many photos.
I recently came across an app on Google play that will allow you to launch the camera to easily take photos. You can find the Camera Launcher App for Nexus 7 on Google Play.

IPOD touch 4G times out on login to facebook app


You may find this has to do with your ISP's DNS settings.

First thing to try is to browse the page via a browser, if you get an error message stating it's blocked or similar then this is your problem. You can verify this is the cause by switching between wifi and 3g; if it works on one but not the other you know that's the fault.

Why isn t my webcam working it s incorporaed and i can t find the driver help me plese


Macs don't have drivers like windows systems do. You could try using the facetime app or photo booth app. If you don't get any response from the webcam it is possible there is a hardware malfunction. You would have to take to a local apple store or contact apple support online.
