9 Active And Knowledgeable Dota 2 Streamers All Players Should Be Watching

About a month ago I got hooked on a little game known as Dota 2 , and I’ve been playing it nonstop ever since. I tried League of Legends initially, and for some reason, it did not click with me. A friend convinced me to give Dota 2 a shot, but I was reluctant after not liking LoL , but after about a week of wearing me down, I gave in and decided to try it out. It grabbed me instantly, and I am incredibly happy that I tried it.

Can Reading Be A Social Experience?

Reading has a reputation for being an isolated activity. We often think of people in their pajamas or bathrobe, sunk into a massive armchair in front of a roaring fire, with a mug of hot cocoa in one hand and a page-turner in the other. Books have the unique ability to suck us into a whole new world where our imaginations are the only limit. So how can reading be social? Discussion, that’s how.

Battery Woes Got You Down? Supercharge Your Battery With Wakelock Detector [Android]

My phone’s anemic battery life really drained the fun away from an otherwise awesome phone, the Nexus 4. Overnight, it would typically lose about 30-50% of its battery charge – while idle! I would get about two or three hours of use before needing to recharge. However, my battery problems went away after using a single app: Wakelock Detector. Unlike other battery analysis apps, Wake Lock Detector provides an easy method to seek out app issues causing battery drain.

5 Awesome DIY Tablet Mounts For Bed: Vote For The Best And We’ll Build It

I love my iPad so much, I take it to bed with me – and I don’t think I’m alone (69% of British iPad owners also do, it seems). But resting it on my chest is far from ideal – I get neck cramps trying to look at the peculiarly angled screen, I certainly can’t type, and any attempt to move knocks the thing right over.
