Hands-Free

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 [...]

SanDisk

How much to pay for a SanDisk 64 GB USB Flash Drive? The short answer to that question is, as little as possible. Of course I couldn’t end this post with that short answer. I’ve got a to share the tale of 3 flash drives. Before I share my flash drive tale, I’ve got to [...]

Pushbullet

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 [...]

Ford-Freestar-Keyless-Entry

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 [...]

Speakers

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 [...]

klinon-romulan-dvorak

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 [...]

EaseUS-Data-Wizard

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 [...]

Profile

Back in the day when it was easy to wipe my computer clean, reformat and re-install the operating system, I had gotten into the habit of backing up my files. Although I backed up the files, I never backed up my profiles. I guess I never realized how important they were or didn’t really know [...]

More Technological Woes

sick-laptop

This is a continuation of my last post where I outline my not so smooth computer reformatting process. I finally did hear from EaseUS about my Data Recovery Wizard refund request (my software review still hasn’t appeared on their website). They referred me to a page on their web server that gives details about their 30 [...]

Comedy-of-Errors

The other day I decided to reformat my computer. It had been acting funky and was in need of help. The first error occurred in backing up my files when I over wrote valuable files on a thumb drive. Instead of saving my files in a separate location, I over wrote the existing files on the [...]
