iPhone Notes

I recently discovered that I can scan documents using the Notes app on my iPhone. In the past I used CamScanner. It’s a neat little document scanner app from which you can send the scanned documents either as an email, text upload to Google Cloud, or a host of other ways to share documents. I [...]

Voice Record Pro

I can’t believe I didn’t write about this app before. Several years ago I came across a free app called Voice Record Pro. I started using it in conjunction with NaturallySpeaking. It allowed me to record dictation for later transcription. I previously used Dragon’s free Remote Anywhere dictation app, but they discontinued it only to [...]

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 [...]

Samsung Galaxy Note

When the screen on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 does not illuminate, its difficult to use the device. After having spent money a few months ago to fix the tablet’s charging port, I didn’t want to send it to the repair shop without doing everything I could to fix the screen’s non-illumination problem. I’ve had [...]

Dancing Low Tech Grandma

I put this dancing grandma video on my Instagram account and I received a comment from an individual asking me how I did it?  The quick one-sentence explanation was inadequate. I told her I created a Bitmoji and connected it to Snapchat, but realized the explanation might not have been good enough. The problem [...]

Terrarium Icon

Recently I became aware of another free movie/TV streaming service called Terrarium TV. I happened to be browsing around in an online forum reading about the problems Kodi folks were having when I came across one comment that was a game changer. The comment was from a person who had used Kodi and switched to Terrarium [...]

Chrome

When I realized it was possible to install Google Chrome on an Amazon Fire TV Stick, it was the answer to several of my dilemmas. Prior to the Fire Stick, I used Roku. What I liked about the Roku was the screen mirroring feature. It allowed me to cast whatever I had on my tablet [...]

No More Spying

Now that I have the Amazon Fire TV Stick and am able to watch a ton of movies, I decided to get a VPN to hinder the tracking of my viewing pleasure. Not only that, I’ve come to find out that cable companies can not only track my online usage, but they are allowed to sell [...]

Gatwick Airport, England

I’m a US citizen that recently went on a 10-day holiday across the pond to the UK. Before leaving the US I researched to see if my cell phone would work while overseas. I went to the Consumer Cellular site with fingers crossed looking for a way to use my cell phone outside of the United [...]

Old Moto G

After purchasing a new iPhone and still getting used to all the bells, whistles and tricks, I was wondering what to do with my old Moto G cell phone. It’s only 8 gigabytes in size so it can’t do very much. 8 GB doesn’t offer much space for uploading photos and videos, but, I can [...]
