iPhone 12 Pro Max

When I bought the iPhone 12, I was coerced into purchasing the insurance. I say coerced because as a general rule, I don’t buy warranties or insurance for devices. I never purchased it when I bought computers, tvs or projectors. Keeping true to myself, I opted not to purchase the AppleCare for the iPhone. iPhone [...]

PC to iPad Transition

PC to iPad

As I continue to transition from a Windows PC to an iPad, I’ve enlisted the assistance of a helper app to bridge the gap between the two. The app I’m using is called Remote Desktop Mobile. This app allows me to access my desktop from the iPad. There are other apps that offer the same [...]

iMovie Icon

I’ve been having a grand time creating movies and trailers using the iMovie app on the iPad Air. My family is sick of me sending them all types of videos and movies. I can’t help it. iMovie is a lot of fun and very easy to use. It’s great for a beginner like me. Since [...]

Apple Pay Card

I recently became an Apple Pay member. Having an Apple Pay credit card (or should I say, line of credit) is a whole new way of life for me. For the record, I don’t use credit cards. Being the old-school, Low-Tech Grandma that I am, I use either cash or debit. I don’t like to [...]

I Apologize

This is a short post and an apology for subjecting my readers to Follow.it. It is not working for me and from some of the feedback I’ve received, it’s not working for you either. As such, after submitting this post, I am deleting all names from the subscriber list. If you wish to follow the [...]

iPad

Over the past several years I’ve been slowly transitioning from a Windows PC to the Apple environment. At my age, that is no simple task. With years of Windows and PC training under my belt, jumping ship to board the Apple train is more like “let’s take the slow boat to somewhere far away.” In [...]

Dictate

In my last post, I ended it with a sentence about Dragon NaturallySpeaking. In essence, the post was about my transition from a PC to an iPad. On my PC I used Dragon NaturallySpeaking as my dictation software. I’ve been using that for years so I know how to get it to do what I [...]

Resizing Images

I thought it strange that I had to download and purchase apps to do something simple like resizing an image and viewing the image metadata on my iPad. The two apps I downloaded were Image Resize and Crop Size. As a PC user, finding the metadata and resizing images is easy. I’ve got a very [...]

Camera Stands

As a part-time geek and full-time Low-Tech Grandma, I have to make sure my mobile devices work for me. Not just working from a “does it turn on and function” point of view, but from a “how do you prop it when you’re not at your home desk” point of view. Yes, I’m talking about [...]

Mobile Hotspot

Instead of purchasing a mobile hotspot device, I turned my old iPhone into a personal hotspot. Don’t be misled into thinking that my old iPhone is relegated to hotspot status only. I still use the old iPhone as my primary phone. Yes, it’s an old iPhone 6S Plus. Ancient by today’s standards, but it’s not [...]
