Seal Team 6 by Howard Wasdin and Stephen Templin book review

Just read a wonderful book about “Seal Team 6″ memoirs of an elite Navy Seal Sniper by Howard E. Wasdin and Stephen Templin.

Howard Wasdin was a Navy Seal Team 6 sniper.

What an insight to the men that protect us and our country. If there are women Seals, I apologize if I am in error by using the term men.  I had never heard much about them until they saved Capt. Richard Phillips after Somali pirates hijacked the Maersk Alabama and just a while ago, the death of Osama Bin Laden.

This isn’t a book just for men.  This book goes into the intense training and bravery of the Navy Seals and the dedication of the men to become a Seal.  I loved this book and want to personally Thank Howard for his service and those of all the men and the women of our military who protect us and the nation every day.

I encourage you to read Howard’s book and realize the years and years of very difficult training under the worst conditions they endure so they can keep America and us free.  I could not put this book down.

Extend Your Cell Phone’s Battery Life

Ways to extend your cell phone’s battery life from PC World:

  1. Dim the screen: Turn your screen’s brightness down to the the lowest setting that you can tolerate.  Even if you ignore the next 5 tips, try this one; it will extend your battery life dramatically.
  2. Set screen timeouts to kick in as quickly as possible: To adjust how long your screen stays lit after receiving input, change the appropriate entry in your phone’s display settings menu. (I set mine at 30 seconds).
  3. Turn off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi when they’re not in use: Both of these features are serious power suckers.
  4. Go easy on power-hungry GPS: Many apps access your phone’s GPS to provide services like finding nearby restaurants. Revvoke access to your phone’s GPS (or deny permission at installation time) for all apps except ones that wouldn’t be worthwhile without it.  Kill extraneous app and nonessential app notifications.
  5. Don’t use vibrate: All that rockin’ and rollin’ takes a lot of juice.
  6. Buy an extended battery: It will swell your phones waifish profile, but it could also double the time between charges. Search online for “extended battery” for your make of phone.
