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 [...]

iClever Package

My fingertips are dancing across yet another keyboard. Yes, I’m still testing portable keyboards and I think this one, made by iClever, is a keeper. I returned the last one because it just didn’t work for me. This one, however, seems to have everything the other keyboard was missing (with 2 small exceptions). What You [...]

Samsers Box

I’ve been testing all sorts of things lately. This Low-Tech Grandma is having a ball. This time around, I decided to try using a portable keyboard. After all, I purchased a min PC and portable monitor, why not a portable keyboard to complete the trio. The keyboard I’m testing now is the Samsers wireless mini [...]
