Your newsletters are very interesting and helpful -- thank you! As I continue to find my way with my new Galaxy Note 3, I am enjoying the process a lot. One of your finest bits of advice was "you are on your own a lot with this -- use your ingenuity -- use the Internet -- you can find a lot of the answers yourself" or words to that effect. Very true! I'm amazed at how much info I've been able to tease out using that approach
