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 [...]

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 [...]

Silicone Keyboard

While I’m slowly embracing the new mobile technology, I still have one foot (and probably ¾ of my body) entrenched in the old desktop/laptop technology. I love the convenience of being able to carry a tablet or smartphone around with nearly the same functionality as my laptop, but small things come at a price. The [...]

Sync-iTunes

As an Android user, I always wanted to know if there was an easy way to transfer music/books from my iTunes account onto my android phone. Imagine my glee when I came across the Sync iTunes app that does just that. The best part about it is the app transfers the music wirelessly. I not [...]

Pushbullet

I recently downloaded the Pushbullet app and it has made my writing life easier. Often times when I’m writing I find myself repeating the phrase “I wish I could just…” or “It would be nice if I were able to…” When I hear myself say that too many times its time to go app shopping. As a [...]

roots

Back in December of 2013, I aired my frustration about the Samsung Galaxy Note’s bloatware and the inability to install certain apps because I did not have root access. For you newbies like me, root access is tantamount to having administrative privileges on the device. Imagine that… I bought a device and I don’t have [...]
