Talking Avatars: Learning How to Create Them

Cartoonized Grandma

This grandma decided to try something new. I am creating talking avatars for videos. I’ve always wanted to create videos but was never a fan of having my face in front of the camera. Despite the current age of selfies and self-promotion, not wanting to be in front of the camera is not uncommon. There [...]

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence

As a person who likes to write and who likes to write online, the evolution of artificial intelligence has thrown me for a loop. When I was a kid many moons ago, I always thought the robot invasion would take over things like manufacturing and assembly lines. I never thought it would interfere with the [...]

Logitech MX Mechanical Keyboard Review

Logitech MX Keyboard

My keyboard addiction struck again. This time, I had a hankering for a mechanical keyboard. I remember the days of old when I typed on the IBM Selectric typewriter. Oh, those were the days. The satisfying feel and clickety-clack of the keyboard made typing papers, proposals, and nonsensical jokes a joy. In an attempt to [...]

Grandma Gives Nuance’s Dragon Anywhere a Try

Dragon Anywhere

I decided to bite the bullet and purchase an annual subscription to Nuance’s Dragon Anywhere. For those not familiar with Dragon Anywhere, it’s a dictation app. Nuance has been in the dictation business for many years. I believe the first Dragon Dictation release was in 1997. I was introduced to Dragon’s software (back then, it [...]

KUXIU Magnetic iPad Stand Review

KUXIU iPad Stand

Finding the perfect iPad stand for your desk is not always easy. It’s especially difficult when you’re using a small writing desk. Space is at a premium, so the base of the stand can’t take up much desktop real estate. After much searching and trial and error, I finally came across the KUXIU (affiliate link) [...]

PlayStation 5 Expenses

PS5

Now that we have the PlayStation 5, I found that we needed to add a few things to make the gaming experience work properly for us. Games are resource-intensive and take up a lot of hard drive space. Having bought a 1 TB console is barely enough space when playing games like Spiderman 2 or [...]

My Preference of iPad over Mac Mini

iPad or Mac Mini

I came into the Apple world via an iPhone. From the iPhone, I expanded to iPads. While I enjoyed my iPhone and iPad, I had “old school” encouragement to get a Mac. For some reason, folks in my age group think computing isn’t computing until you have a desktop, either PC or Mac. I resisted [...]

Apple Notes for Movie/Game Cataloging

Apple Notes Confusion

As simple as Apple Notes is to use, I just can’t seem to wrap my brain around some of the features. I watch videos of people using Apple notes for a host of things. They also add tags and smart folders and can sort things. For some reason, fully utilizing the Apple Notes app has [...]

LTG: Raking in the Dough

Make Money

Blogging has changed from when I first started. Back in the day, when blogging was new, it was all about expressing ideas and sharing things. As time went on, people realized they can earn money with blogging. As such, blogs were tweaked and massaged to satisfy the search engines. Early on, there was search engine [...]

No Thank You!

No Thank You

I say no thank you to all the SEO experts who continually send emails to me promising a page 1 ranking in the Google search engine results. Sometimes, people want to write online just because they want to. If they make a few pennies while they’re writing, that’s all well and good. If they don’t [...]
