PlayStation Vue Outside Home Network

So far things have been going swimmingly with my recent PlayStation Vue subscription. There are a few hiccups, but with technology that’s to be expected. Having said that, this one hiccup really frosted my liver. It wasn’t the hiccup so much, but the inability to access customer support when I needed it. Outside Home Network [...]

Grandma's Fast Internet Speed

Recently I increased my internet speed from 100 Mbps to 200 Mbps. The thought of that type of increase got me drunk with possibilities. Imagine my surprise when I performed a speed test and my computer’s actual speed ranged between 5 Mbps and 20 Mbps. No matter how you slice it, that’s a far cry [...]

I told her I created a Bitmoji and connected it to Snapchat, but realized the explanation might not have been good enough. The problem [...]

Rii i8+ Mini Keyboard

The Rii i8+ mini keyboard has made navigating around my Amazon Fire TV Stick a lot easier. If you’re using the Amazon Fire TV Stick with Kodi, Terrarium TV or any of the other streaming services, you know how cumbersome using the Fire Stick remote can be. Searching for movies by title or actor requires [...]

Recently I became aware of another free movie/TV streaming service called Terrarium TV. I happened to be browsing around in an online forum reading about the problems Kodi folks were having when I came across one comment that was a game changer. The comment was from a person who had used Kodi and switched to [...]

Dragon vs. Docs

My goal was to perform an unscientific experiment to test the transcription accuracy of both Google Docs and Dragon NaturallySpeaking. I wanted to see if the expensive Dragon NaturallySpeaking was more accurate than the free Google Doc’s Voice Typing feature. How I Performed the Transcription Experiment Here is a listing of the equipment I used [...]
