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 [...]

Old Software – New PC

What to Do?

After purchasing a new mini PC, I needed to install all of the software I had on my old PC on the new one. Everything went smoothly except for two programs, NaturallySpeaking and FrameMaker. The NaturallySpeaking issue was self-inflicted, but the FrameMaker problem is called, out-with-the-old-and-in-with-the-new. Here’s My Story I thought I was done with [...]

Zissu's Portable Monitor

Now that I have a mini PC, I decided to test things a bit by purchasing a portable monitor to go along with the mini PC. I wanted to see how easy or difficult it would be to take my computer on the road. After researching online and reading reviews, I purchased the Zissu’s portable [...]

The Beelink Mini PC has helped me in my attempt to minimize things around the house, I’ve been looking for items that serve more than one purpose and don’t take up a lot of space. During my recent projector search, I stumbled across a thing called a mini pc. For years I had tried to [...]

Stageek Mouse Mover

Back in September, my husband thought I was nuts when I suggested a mouse mover. As a matter of fact, back then I didn’t know that such an item even existed, but I figured if there was a need, there must be a product. If not, it’s time to create the product to fit the [...]

What a new world we’re living in right now. There’s a whole new normal and this old gal is learning to go with the flow. It’s not easy, but the tree with the limber branches gets to keep them during the storm. I’m limbering up. COVID-19 made me come to quite a few realizations. First [...]

Data Breach

Another data breach was recently reported. Rather than re-write what someone else has covered in much more detail than I can, I’ll link to the article, The 773 Million Record “Collection #1” Data Breach, by Troy Hunt. Mr. Hunt has an impressive resume. As taken from the about page from his website, Have I Been [...]

Keyboards

I’m finicky when it comes to keyboards. I have several computer keyboards that I rotate. I rotate them based on need and preference. If I could find one keyboard to meet all of my needs, I wouldn’t have to rotate them. Unfortunately, I haven’t found that one perfect keyboard…or so I thought!. With the recent [...]

Aukey FM Transmitter

The Aukey FM transmitter solved my non-Bluetooth audio sound quality problem. While I love driving my almost 20-year-old Chevy Express, I do wish it had a Bluetooth compatible radio (that’s on my “to purchase” list, but takes a back seat to more important things). Several months ago, I wrote about my trials and errors with [...]

Hands Free

Recently I purchased an older car. When I say old, I mean old. It’s a 1999 Chevy Express Conversion van that’s in great condition. I love it, but I’ve got to admit, modern technology has crept into my everyday life. As such, the one thing this vehicle is missing is Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free driving. [...]
