Low Tech Grandma

If you read my earlier post, you’d know that out of all the available tablets on the market I settled for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. Once the decision was made I went to Best Buy to purchase it. Unfortunately, they didn’t have the 32 GB Galaxy so I ordered it from Amazon. I also [...]

Although this article is written with the Galaxy Note 10.1 in mind, most of these instructions should work for Android clipboards on other devices. The average user doesn’t really pay attention to the contents of the clipboard. Whenever we copy something on our device it gets stored in the clipboard. We later paste it elsewhere [...]

As I stepped into the world of tablets, I realized I had to remain focused on my “must haves” otherwise I would get lost in the glitz and glamour of what each device offered.  To narrow the playing field I only entertained devices that were near 10 inches in size.  No 7-inch screens for me. [...]

This is an introductory article by an old timer looking to join the technological revolution.  My laptop is giving up on me and it’s time to purchase a tablet.  I’ve resisted this change because I didn’t think a freelance writer could write extensively on a tablet, but I hope I prove myself wrong.

What’s more annoying than attempting to make an urgent call on your Verizon prepaid cell phone only to hear the Verizon wireless balance notification electronic voice. It slowly informs you of your current prepaid phone balance and how much you can use for your current phone call. When you need to make a call from [...]

A couple of years ago I purchased an ASUS Eee netbook. I purchased it because I needed something smaller and more portable than my 17-inch laptop. As a freelance writer, I was looking for something with a full QWERTY keyboard. I didn’t think a tablet would do the trick due to its lack of keyboard. [...]

Cell Phone Radiation

If you use a cell phone the old-fashioned way, then you should take time to read the book Disconnect by Derva Davis. When I say the old-fashioned way, I’m talking about dialing a number, putting the phone to your ear and actually having a voice conversation. If you only use it for texting, you’re a [...]

The digital camera that I’ve been using for over 10 years finally died. I guess it’s a good thing it died because the technology has advanced so much over the past 10 years that the bulky3.2 megapixel camera was nothing but a dinosaur that I should have put out to pasture several years ago. When [...]

I use Dragon Deluxe NaturallySpeaking software to dictate a lot of my work. In order for the software to hear my instructions and dictation, I’ve got to use a compatible headset. I’ve used both the Logitech and Microsoft LifeChat USB wired headset in the past. They both had their pros and cons, but one thing [...]

We finally decided to upgrade the office a bit. After spending so much time in the home office; it makes sense to make it a bit more comfortable. In addition to very necessary equipment such as a laser printer, upgraded software and wireless headsets, we decided to add a flat-screen TV to the office (gotta [...]
