Profile

Back in the day when it was easy to wipe my computer clean, reformat and re-install the operating system, I had gotten into the habit of backing up my files. Although I backed up the files, I never backed up my profiles. I guess I never realized how important they were or didn’t really know [...]

More Technological Woes

sick-laptop

This is a continuation of my last post where I outline my not so smooth computer reformatting process. I finally did hear from EaseUS about my Data Recovery Wizard refund request (my software review still hasn’t appeared on their website). They referred me to a page on their web server that gives details about their 30 [...]

Comedy-of-Errors

The other day I decided to reformat my computer. It had been acting funky and was in need of help. The first error occurred in backing up my files when I over wrote valuable files on a thumb drive. Instead of saving my files in a separate location, I over wrote the existing files on the [...]

Road-Map

Purchasing a Smartphone saved me the expense of buying a GPS navigation device for my car. If it were not for my daughter looking at me the way only a teenager can and asking, “Why don’t you just use your phone?” I’d still be considering the purchase of a GPS device. Prior to using the [...]

Scribe

If it aint broke, don’t fix it, right?  But what about trying to tweak it just a bit? I enjoy the functionality of using the Dragon NaturallySpeaking app on my Smartphone to dictate work to my computer. The downside to the setup, however, is that I have to hold the phone in order to dictate. [...]

Logitech-V20-USB-Speakers

Back when I purchased Logitech V20s in 2009 I had a difficult time finding USB speakers with real quality sound. In my experience, in order to enjoy speakers with true quality sound you needed to purchase speakers that required juice from an electrical outlet. Keeping that in mind, I’m pretty satisfied with the sound quality [...]

Dragon-Remote

After using the dictation app that came with the Samsung Galaxy, I decided to try remote dictation with Dragon’s NaturallySpeaking. After all, if I can write one article on two separate devices at the same time using Android’s default dictation software, imagine what I can do with NaturallySpeaking. To use Dragon’s remote microphone feature you’ve [...]

Screen-Clip

There are times when a picture is worth a thousand words. Tech writers especially understand the importance of being able to take a screen clip of a computer screen’s display. Transitioning from a laptop to a tablet presents an interesting challenge in capturing screen images. The challenge for this writer is she didn’t know how [...]

ASUS-Eee-Netbook

A couple of years ago I purchased an ASUS Eee netbook. I purchased it because I needed something smaller and more portable than my 17-inch laptop. As a freelance writer, I was looking for something with a full QWERTY keyboard. I didn’t think a tablet would do the trick due to its lack of keyboard. [...]

Platronics Audio 995

I use Dragon Deluxe NaturallySpeaking software to dictate a lot of my work. In order for the software to hear my instructions and dictation, I’ve got to use a compatible headset. I’ve used both the Logitech and Microsoft LifeChat USB wired headset in the past. They both had their pros and cons, but one thing [...]
