Low Tech Grandma

I recently downloaded the Pushbullet app and it has made my writing life easier. Often times when I’m writing I find myself repeating the phrase “I wish I could just…” or “It would be nice if I were able to…” When I hear myself say that too many times its time to go app shopping. As a [...]

Back in December of 2013, I aired my frustration about the Samsung Galaxy Note’s bloatware and the inability to install certain apps because I did not have root access. For you newbies like me, root access is tantamount to having administrative privileges on the device. Imagine that… I bought a device and I don’t have [...]

After using Sygic’s GPS navigation app (I’ll write a more detailed review of the navigation app in the near future) I decided to try their Family Locator app. It has proven to be rather useful. Just as the name implies, it locates members of your family. Once the app is installed, you have the option [...]

If you purchase a used Freestar as I did, the seller might not have the original factory set code that’s needed to reprogram the keyless entry. What the seller failed to realize was the code was right under his nose. Ford places a secondary factory set code within the bowels of the car. Finding the [...]

The quickest way to charge the Samsung tablet is to use the charger that comes with the Samsung tablet. If you do that, you don’t have to read the rest of this post.

A little over a year ago I wrote a post regarding cell phone GPS apps. I had a tough time using the on-screen navigation systems and things did not improve over the year. Not only did the GPS use quite a bit of my monthly data allotment, it was cumbersome with plenty of hiccups. Having [...]

With more than one Gmail account comes more than one Google Drive storage cloud. More than one storage cloud could be a good thing or a confusing thing. It’s a good thing when you carefully register your various Android devices using the same Google Gmail account. It becomes more confusing when you use different accounts [...]

The Logitech Z 200 speakers are just what I was looking for.  I  recently reformated my computer and I decided to purchase a pair of line-in speakers. I opted for non-USB speakers because I wanted something that would not only work with my computer but also with my Smartphone and Samsung Galaxy tablet. USB speakers [...]

Dvorak is not an alien race from Star Trek such as the Romulans or Klingons, neither is it some type of fad new spoken language. The Dvorak keyboard is just an alternative to the more popular QWERTY keyboard. In reading the book, How the Body Knows its Mind, by Sian Beilock, Chapter 5 discusses body [...]

My original review for this data recovery software took a complete U-turn. Well not a complete U-turn but my review is tempered based on recent developments. I purchased the data recovery software because I had overwritten valuable files on my computer and was looking for a way to recover them. In an earlier post I [...]
