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. [...]

Hands-Free

For quite some time I had been trying to figure out how to use a headset with the Dragon NaturallySpeaking remote microphone app. While the remote app frees me from being tethered to the computer when dictating, I ran into the problem of having only one hand free. The other hand is stuck holding the [...]

SanDisk

How much to pay for a SanDisk 64 GB USB Flash Drive? The short answer to that question is, as little as possible. Of course I couldn’t end this post with that short answer. I’ve got a to share the tale of 3 flash drives. Before I share my flash drive tale, I’ve got to [...]

Speakers

The Logitech Z 200 speakers are just what I was looking for.  I  recently reformated my computer and I decided to purchase a pair of line-in speakers. I opted for non-USB speakers because I wanted something that would not only work with my computer but also with my Smartphone and Samsung Galaxy tablet. USB speakers [...]

klinon-romulan-dvorak

Dvorak is not an alien race from Star Trek such as the Romulans or Klingons, neither is it some type of fad new spoken language. The Dvorak keyboard is just an alternative to the more popular QWERTY keyboard. In reading the book, How the Body Knows its Mind, by Sian Beilock, Chapter 5 discusses body [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Altec-Lansing-VS262-2.1

We finally decided to upgrade the office a bit. After spending so much time in the home office; it makes sense to make it a bit more comfortable. In addition to very necessary equipment such as a laser printer, upgraded software and wireless headsets, we decided to add a flat-screen TV to the office (gotta [...]

Logitech-Mouse-M305

One of the best computer gadget investments that I’ve made in the past week was to purchase a Logitech mini wireless mouse. The one I bought is the Logitech M305. The mouse only cost about $20 but is worth that and more. If you use a laptop, you know how annoying the built-in mouse could [...]

Microsoft-Life-Chat

A few months ago I purchased a Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 USB headset. I needed to replace my old Logitech headset which crapped out on me. I used the headset with my voice recognition software. The old Logitech headphones worked okay in the beginning but after a while, I noticed that I had to do more [...]
