Getting the Most Out of Your Android Smartphone

Although Android is the most popular mobile operating system in the world, most people do not take full advantage of the capabilities of their smartphone or tablet. This program will take you beyond checking your email and browsing the internet to see a wide range of tools and functions, ranging from the innumerable apps in the Google Play store, to wirelessly connected devices using Bluetooth, and much more.

Movie: Two for the Road

A couple traveling to the south of France spin down the highways of infidelity in their troubled ten-year marriage. The film was considered somewhat experimental for its time because the story is told in a non-linear fashion, with scenes from the latter stages of the relationship juxtaposed with those from its beginning. The couple honestly analyze the fears and insecurities which have plagued them throughout their marriage, and look to their future.

Starring: Albert Finney, Audrey Hepburn
Release Year: 1967
