Removing Dell Computer Bloatware

Removing Dell Computer Bloatware

| April 15, 2016 | 0 Comments

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 […]

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 […]

Activating Dragon NaturallySpeaking with Windows 10 (Again)

Activating Dragon NaturallySpeaking with Windows 10 (Again)

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 […]

EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Review

EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Review

| January 22, 2015 | 0 Comments

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 […]

Backing up Software Profiles

Backing up Software Profiles

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 […]

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 […]

Technological Comedy of Errors: Backup, Reformat, Lose Data, Restore

Technological Comedy of Errors: Backup, Reformat, Lose Data, Restore

| December 8, 2014 | 2 Comments

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 […]

NaturallySpeaking Dictation and Transcription Accuracy

NaturallySpeaking Dictation and Transcription Accuracy

| May 23, 2014 | 0 Comments

If it aint broke, don’t fix it, right?  But what about trying to tweak it just a bit? I enjoy the functionality of using the Dragon NaturallySpeaking app on my Smartphone to dictate work to my computer. The downside to the setup, however, is that I have to hold the phone in order to dictate. […]

How to Set Up Dragon NaturallySpeaking Remote App for Mobile Devices

After using the dictation app that came with the Samsung Galaxy, I decided to try remote dictation with Dragon’s NaturallySpeaking. After all, if I can write one article on two separate devices at the same time using Android’s default dictation software, imagine what I can do with NaturallySpeaking. To use Dragon’s remote microphone feature you’ve […]

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 […]
