Flagged by Craigslist

The recent Craigslist flag really has me stumped. I’ve been buying and selling items on Craigslist for several years. A lot of the refurbished furniture in my house was purchased on Craigslist. In addition to the items I refurbished and kept, I was able to refurbish and sell many pieces. Last month I put two [...]

Best Price

Never did I ever think there would come a time when this grandma would not going shopping without her smartphone (being the late comer to the smartphone party that I am). I don’t necessarily need it so much for phone conversations or texting although I’ve done both on occasion. What I really use the phone [...]

Gatwick Airport, England

I’m a US citizen that recently went on a 10-day holiday across the pond to the UK. Before leaving the US I researched to see if my cell phone would work while overseas. I went to the Consumer Cellular site with fingers crossed looking for a way to use my cell phone outside of the United [...]

Old Moto G

After purchasing a new iPhone and still getting used to all the bells, whistles and tricks, I was wondering what to do with my old Moto G cell phone. It’s only 8 gigabytes in size so it can’t do very much. 8 GB doesn’t offer much space for uploading photos and videos, but, I can [...]

Old School vs New School

The beauty of owning a large cell phone like the iPhone 6s Plus is that it can double as a workstation. Yes, I’m writing this post on my iPhone using a combination of Dragon’s Dictation and the portable keyboard. It’s amazing what a phone can accomplish nowadays.

OtterBox Logo

Now that I’m the proud owner of an iPhone, the first order of the day is to protect my investment. I’ve never spent so much money on a small piece of electronic equipment in my life, so it is important to do what I must to keep it in one piece. Remember the video of [...]

Apple Tree

Well, I went and did it. I jumped into the deep end of the pool. I decided to get an iPhone, so I ended up with the iPhone 6s Plus. This is my first experience in Appleland. Well, not really. Some time ago I had an iPod Nano that I liked very much until the [...]

Duolingo

Not too long ago I did a quick review of 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 [...]

Small iSound

I mentioned in an earlier post that I was the recipient of an iSound. An iSound is a little speaker that plugs perfectly into any cell phone, tablet or any other line-in compatible device. It has a neat little feature where it will display rotating colors if you’re into that stuff. Personally, I like my speakers [...]

DuoLingo

As we age we are constantly reminded that we must “use it or lose it.” In this case, I’m talking about physical exercise and mental acumen. Who would have thought there would be apps to help keep both intact? Let me rephrase that. The mere fact of downloading the app and getting it to work [...]
