The trick for LG G2 to take a screenshot

email post

How to take screenshots on the LG G2

The LG G2 is most special looking Android device on the market today. Featuring a substantial 5.2 inch near bezeless display, the G2 still packs one handed usability. This is due to the fact the device is only .35 inches thick, and the power and volume buttons have been relocated to the back for easy, one handed access. LG has decided to include a software method of screenshot taking, which does not require any physical button presses.

Due to the size and unique shape of this device the button combination can be somewhat difficult. I have larger hands yet pressing close buttons on the rear of the device was a challenge, and sometimes required two hands.

To take a screenshot press the volume down and the power button at the same time. until you hear the screen capture sound. The screen will flash and the notification bar will say: “Saving screenshot…” once that is occurs it is safe to release.

Enable Google Toolbar in Firefox 5

Enable Google Toolbar in Firefox 5

If you've installed Firefox 5 and noticed that Google Toolbar wasn't updated to support the new Firefox release, there's a simple way to enable the extension:
install the Add-on Compatibility Reporter. "After installing the Add-on Compatibility Reporter, your incompatible extensions will become enabled for you to test whether they still work with the version of Firefox or Thunderbird that you're using." This should only be a temporary solution until Google Toolbar and other extensions update their compatibility list.

Google Toolbar 7 works well in Firefox 5, especially considering that the new Firefox version didn't make too many important extension-related changes.

Firefox's faster release cycle, inspired by Google Chrome, has an important downside: extension developers need to update their extensions more frequently and update the list of Firefox versions that are supported. Mozilla alleviated this problem by automatically marking almost 4,000 extensions as compatible with Firefox 5, but Google Toolbar is not hosted by Mozilla and it's downloaded from Google's servers.

Tricks to Deal With Bad Customer Service

Tricks to Deal With Bad Customer Service

Cool customer services will make you want to continue to do business with a company. Bad customer service will frustrate you and make you think about taking your business else where. Dealing with bad customer service in the proper way will help you feel better about your experience and will help the company improve customer service.

Be specific about your complaint when you are speaking to a customer service representative. Many times, bad customer service is simply the result of the customer service representative misunderstanding your situation.

Stay calm and polite when you are speaking to any representative of the company. Becoming irate will hurt your chances of having your problem solved.

Ask to speak to a supervisor or manager if necessary. A manager or supervisor will usually have more options available to effectively fix your problem.

Offer your suggestions. If you have ways in mind to correct the problem or improve customer service, let the supervisor know. You may be able to offer a solution that the manager didn't think about.

Accept that you may have to compromise. In some cases, the solution that you are seeking may be impossible.

Write a letter to the company or business owner. Make sure that you include your initial problem, the names of everyone you spoke with, your specific customer service complaints, your proposed solution and your contact information.

Find a new business to frequent. If you find that you are unable to get your situation resolved in a mutually agreeable way, taking your business elsewhere will make a powerful statement. This is especially true if you are dealing with a small business.
