Has this happened to anyone else? Usually my fast-charging Gemini comes up to full in a couple of hours, but today I came back after about four hours and the LED was still red! The status panel said "Approx 4 hours left" and "50%" ! I unplugged the USB, and replugged it (reversing the connector for good measure). A little while later it was up to 72% and has since been charging at the normal speed.

I'd guess that there is some pin in the connector or something that indicates fast charging, which somehow hadn't made contact. Does anybody know what the protocol is?

Does Yalp no longer work for accessing the PlayStore, or is there some action I haven't taken?

When I got my Gemini a year ago, I used Yalp to grab a lot of the basic stuff, but I wanted to look for something just now, and all I get is "No Network Connection". I am connected, as everything else works, but no Yalp!

Any clues?

Keyboards are proliferating!


That looks rather bulkier that the Gemini -- and chicklet keys!

I wouldn't have known about this if I hadn't happened to come across this post here, so I thought a specific pointer might be useful.

This is a neat little dual-connector (FAT32) USB drive that plugs straight in to your Gemini or your computer. Perfect for having files at hand on any machine. It comes in various sizes from 16GB to 128GB (I got the smallest for $21).

Mine just arrived, and it looks to be just what I need. It includes a "SanDiskMemoryZone" app that I haven't installed. I think I prefer direct management of my files (by Total Commander, which I've also just discovered...), but if anybody thinks it's a great addition I might drop it in.

(I bought it from BestBuy, as I had other things to get there. They only had the biggest one in stock, but they shipped the 16GB one to me in 5 days.)

Reading through the User Guide, it struck me that setting Power Off for the nightime hours might save a bit of battery, so I found the relevant Setting and tried to adjust it to my liking.

However, in whatever way I try to input a new value, when I go back up to the "Schedule power on & off" screen the times are back to their original "7:00 AM" and "8:30 AM" somewhat useless settings!

Do others see this, or am I being stupid somehow?
