Aukey FM Transmitter

The Aukey FM transmitter solved my non-Bluetooth audio sound quality problem. While I love driving my almost 20-year-old Chevy Express, I do wish it had a Bluetooth compatible radio (that’s on my “to purchase” list, but takes a back seat to more important things). Several months ago, I wrote about my trials and errors with [...]

Hands Free

Recently I purchased an older car. When I say old, I mean old. It’s a 1999 Chevy Express Conversion van that’s in great condition. I love it, but I’ve got to admit, modern technology has crept into my everyday life. As such, the one thing this vehicle is missing is Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free driving. [...]

PlayStation Vue

With PlayStation Vue, I can finally cut the cable cord, or at least I’m prepared to cut the cable cord. I first have to find out more information about penalties and such for canceling my services. Cable companies give you a discount if you order all three services, internet, phone and cable. If you remove [...]

Dancing Low Tech Grandma

I put this dancing grandma video on my Instagram account and I received a comment from an individual asking me how I did it?  The quick one-sentence explanation was inadequate. 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 [...]

Terrarium Icon

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 Terrarium [...]

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 [...]

Blue Silicone Keyboard

After 2 years of using silicone keyboards, they are still my preferred keyboard for typing. As a blogger and sometimes writer, I have several keyboards and typewriters (yes, I’m that old). The silicone keyboards have outlasted some of my more expensive and feature-rich keyboards.  I paid less than $20 for my keyboard and they’re even [...]

Transcribe Recorded Dictation with Google Docs

Imagine my elation when I found out I could use Google Docs to transcribe recorded dictation. I couldn’t believe it. I knew it had the capability to transcribe voice to text, but to transcribe pre-recorded utterances? Well, that’s a horse of a different color. As a writer, I often use voice recognition software. My software [...]

Waze App

This Low Tech Grandma is blazing a new trail by learning how to use the WAZE app.  It’s a freely available turn-by-turn navigation app. I feel like I’m in the big league now.  The WAZE navigation app helped me to navigate a 933-mile road trip.  WAZE not only got me to my destination and back, [...]
