This tip walks you through the process of unboxing a new device - I've used a Nexus and tried to be as general as possible to give an idea of the process for all users. I've also covered the process for factory resetting an existing device, perhaps in preparation for handing it over to someone else.

A Quick Overview of TuneIn Radio

This is a little overview of TuneIn Radio, the free version that lacks a few items, comparing it to the paid version, besides the fact that you would be presented with ads at the bottom of the app.

There is an entry for this in the "apps and Games" directory with more information, but you may download the app from:

besides all of that, it will let you know whether or not the business in question is opened at the time you are calling or not.

Following a conversation on the Eyes-Free list, both Warren Carr and I went off to record our thoughts on Google Now. Listening to Warren's as I am while I upload mine, I think we've actually tag teamed a bit on what we've covered - I touched on setting up Google now from scratch, Warren goes into more detail on the settings themselves and creating the Google Now cards, and I spent more time on asking OK Google questions
