Journal

Not too long ago, I wrote about my recent iPad purchase. This, after years of operating in a Windows environment. My brain is doing all types of somersaults transitioning from Windows to iOS. I knew the transition was going to be tough, but I’ll power through. The biggest concern I had, however, was what was [...]

Chromebook

Warning: This is an article I started writing almost a year ago and, for some reason, it never made it to the blog. With the new year, I’m trying to complete unfinished articles and delete those that are not worth finishing. I’ve got a lot of completing and deleting to do. The following article, although [...]

Grandma Buys an iPad

Grandma Buys an iPad

Yep, I went and did it. I bought an iPad. I bought the iPad Air (Amazon affiliate link) 10.9-inch screen, fourth generation. For many years I’ve been debating whether or not to transition from Microsoft over to Apple. I knew Apple had great products and my lack of transition had nothing to do with whether or [...]

iPhone Notes

I recently discovered that I can scan documents using the Notes app on my iPhone. In the past I used CamScanner. It’s a neat little document scanner app from which you can send the scanned documents either as an email, text upload to Google Cloud, or a host of other ways to share documents. I [...]

Voice Record Pro

I can’t believe I didn’t write about this app before. Several years ago I came across a free app called Voice Record Pro. I started using it in conjunction with NaturallySpeaking. It allowed me to record dictation for later transcription. I previously used Dragon’s free Remote Anywhere dictation app, but they discontinued it only to [...]

Fish Don't Climb Trees

Oh, Happy Day!  Queue the Edwin Hawkins Singers! I am thrilled to pieces that I was finally able to install my old FrameMaker version 6 software on my new mini PC! If you’ve read my recent blog post, you’d know that I’ve been spending an inordinate amount of time searching for a new journaling software [...]

Jackery

About a year ago, I purchased a 240-watt Jackery power station. I bought it to keep me powered up during my van travels. With having a laptop, tablet, and iPhone, I wanted something that would adequately charge the devices. Whether I went camping, picnicking in the park, or just hanging out in the yard, the [...]

Bluetooth

I must be the last person on earth to realize I could transfer files between computers by using the Bluetooth option. This is a true smack my forehead moment. You wouldn’t believe all the machinations I went through to transfer files from my old computer to the new mini PC. I’d upload them to Google [...]

Amazon Fire TV Storage

I finally did it! I finally moved apps from my almost maxed out Amazon Fire TV to a USB flash drive. This is something I had been wanting to do for so long but thought the process was way too involved and complicated. All I needed was the right teacher and viola, Bob’s my uncle! [...]

Journaling Software Search

Recently I’ve been spending time searching for a program to replace FrameMaker as my journaling software. In my last post, I explain why. My old FrameMaker version 6 won’t work together with my new Windows 10 Pro mini PC (I give more details in an earlier post). My attempt to install the old program generates [...]
