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 [...]

Instagram

Instagram is a neat little tool. It allows me to keep up with the happenings of my younger relatives. I much prefer it to Facebook because it’s concise. The problem I have with Instagram, however, is that it isn’t as PC friendly as I would like. You see, these eyes much prefer viewing Instagram through [...]

Instagram

This post will tell you just how low-tech I am. I’m almost too embarrassed to write it, but I’m figuring there’s at least one other old timer out there that wanted to know how to solve this dilemma (without involving our sometimes techno-smug children). I’ll make this short and sweet. The Instagram Problem As the [...]

Battery Charge

A few months ago (November 2018) I bought an Amazon HD 10 Fire tablet. I love the tablet. It’s quick, relatively inexpensive (compared to my now defunct overpriced Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1). The fire tablet’s integration with Amazon’s videos and downloaded books made my life easy. In addition to its seamless integration with my downloaded [...]

Blokada

I want to begin this post by saying thank you to Rita M. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t have investigated the Blokada app. What is Blokada? Blokada is a free open source ad blocking app that works on Android devices, including the Amazon Fire Stik (unfortunately, it does not work on iOS). It [...]

No More Terrarium TV

Terrarium TV, you have changed my life! It was about 18 short months ago when I first became aware of the movie streaming world. Back then I purchased and “jailbroke” my first Amazon Fire TV stick. Oh, what a newb I was. It’s been a long time since this grandma was a newbie at anything [...]

7Notes Icon

Imagine my surprise when I realized a stylus works with the Amazon Fire HD (Kindle). When I first got the Kindle I tried using the stylus from the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. It didn’t work so I figured my new tablet was not stylus enabled. Little did I realize there are two completely different stylus [...]

Libby

I can’t believe I haven’t written about one of my favorite apps, Libby. Libby is a must-have app if you love to read. Whether you listen to audio books or read ebooks, Libby is the app for you. The best part about it is it’s free! All you need is a device, the app and [...]

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 [...]

Amazon HD Tablet

This grandma has a new tablet. It’s the Amazon Fire HD 10. I made sure to get the one without “Special Offers.” Jeeze Loueeze! The thought of purchasing a tablet with built-in advertisements gets my goat. Anyway, I got the 64 GB (expandable up to 256 GB) version of the tablet. I also got it [...]
