Stuff I Like 📱
These are some companies and products that I like using and recommend to others. If you buy something using the links on this page, you'll save money and I may get a small cut. Win-win.
NextDNS is a cloud-based content filter that can block tracking scripts and other unwanted content across your entire network. I use it to block apps communicating with Facebook, remove ads in apps preinstalled on Samsung phones, and much more. My favorite feature is that it can be used as the system DNS provider on Android 9.0+ without installing any apps.
Dropbox is a cloud storage service that I've used for around two years. I use Dropbox mainly beacuse it's the only major cloud service that supports Linux, and I like that you can edit Microsoft Office documents from the Dropbox website using Office Online. If you create an account with the link below, even a free one, you get 500MB of extra storage.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 is currently my favorite phone, and I also have a Galaxy Tab S6 for watching media (and occasional work) that I enjoy using. If you use the below link to purchase something from Samsung's website, you can get 5% off. Entering code ref-4ckb48 at checkout also works.
I switched my phone service to Ting in March 2021, and it took all of five minutues (and no phone calls) to port my old number over. It has pretty good prices and wide device compatibility, plus you get to use T-Mobile's fast mobile network. If you sign up with the link below, you get $25 in service credit.
