Easy Home Automation w/ Google Home! [HOWTO]

Google Home is probably the best way to setup your home automation over Amazon’s popular Amazon Echo as it allows you to easily control every appliance in your home with voice.  What’s good with Google Home is that the voice-control also works with any Android smartphone running Google Assistant.  Google has rolled out Google Assistant for all Android devices running Marshmallow or Nougat, meaning you should be able to control your whole house with any Android smartphone if your phone runs Marshmallow or Nougat.

How to Remove/Fix 60% Battery Limit on Galaxy Note 7!

(Above is my Note 7 fully charged to 100% and with green icon, this is an ORIGINAL Note 7, not the second edition.)

For those of you STILL using the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, we highly recommend you to return it to Samsung or local carrier.  But there are instances like where you may not be able to get your full money back.  I bought my international Galaxy Note 7 on eBay and could not get my money back as it was over 30-days for the return period plus eBay doesn’t have policies protecting Galaxy Note 7 buyers.  You may be in the same boat where you acquired the Note 7 overseas and it may mean you are stuck with the phone.

Pokemon Go Cheat/Hack for Android – How to Play Game without Leaving House! [Works on v0.35.0][UPDATE]

When Pokemon Go app was launched, I was really excited to play the game until I found out I can’t get any new Pokemons due to the fact that the game’s support in Thailand is nearly non-existent.  I am staying here in rural part of Chiang Mai, Thailand and found zero Pokemons over the course of few days.  Also I traveled to Bangkok for 10 days and found zero.  This is a really frustrating game for those of you who live outside Pokemon’s release countries such as South Korea where the game only works in rural city near Japan called Sokcho.
