After purchasing a new iPhone and still getting used to all the bells, whistles and tricks, I was wondering what to do with my old Moto G cell phone. It’s only 8 gigabytes in size so it can’t do very much. 8 GB doesn’t offer much space for uploading photos and videos, but, I can […]

About a month or so ago I purchased a new Dell desktop to serve as my “home base.” Being old school, I like having something that’s stationary and large. The laptop, tablet and cellphone are convenient, but there’s something about having a large, stationary, go-to computer that comforts me (yes, I’m old fashioned). As a […]

I purchased the Evenflo Exersaucer Triple Fun Activity Center for my grandson a few months ago. It’s a wonderful little entertainment system. What I really liked about it was its ability to evolve as the baby’s motor skills improve. We’re at the point where my grandson is just about walking and I thought it was a […]

Now that I’m the proud owner of an iPhone, the first order of the day is to protect my investment. I’ve never spent so much money on a small piece of electronic equipment in my life, so it is important to do what I must to keep it in one piece. Remember the video of […]

Well I went and did it. I jumped into the deep end of the pool. I decided to get an iPhone, so I ended up with the iPhone 6s Plus. This is my first experience in Appleland. Well, not really. Some time ago I had an iPod Nano that I liked very much until the […]

Learn to Speak Spanish with Duolingo (it’s free)

Not too long ago I did a quick review on a website called Duolingo. It’s helping me to learn how to speak Spanish. Back when I did the review I was 6% Spanish fluent. Now, according to Duolingo, I’m a whopping 30% fluent (I’m taking it slow). In my earlier review I failed to mention […]

I don’t know what’s going on, but every time I open Dragon NaturallySpeaking (version 13), I’m forced to activate the software. The first time I got the activation notification was right after I upgraded to Windows 10. Ok, that makes sense. I upgraded the operating system, so Nuance asked me to reactivate the software. No […]

For quite some time I had been trying to figure out how to use a headset with the Dragon NaturallySpeaking remote microphone app. While the remote app frees me from being tethered to the computer when dictating, I ran into the problem of having only one hand free. The other hand is stuck holding the […]
