Tablet

Camera Stands

As a part-time geek and full-time Low-Tech Grandma, I have to make sure my mobile devices work for me. Not just working from a “does it turn on and function” point of view, but from a “how do you prop it when you’re not at your home desk” point of view. Yes, I’m talking about [...]

Chromebook

Warning: This is an article I started writing almost a year ago and, for some reason, it never made it to the blog. With the new year, I’m trying to complete unfinished articles and delete those that are not worth finishing. I’ve got a lot of completing and deleting to do. The following article, although [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
