ASUS-Eee-Netbook

A couple of years ago I purchased an ASUS Eee netbook. I purchased it because I needed something smaller and more portable than my 17-inch laptop. As a freelance writer, I was looking for something with a full QWERTY keyboard. I didn’t think a tablet would do the trick due to its lack of keyboard. [...]

Cell Phone Radiation

Radioactive

If you use a cell phone the old-fashioned way, then you should take time to read the book Disconnect by Derva Davis. When I say the old-fashioned way, I’m talking about dialing a number, putting the phone to your ear and actually having a voice conversation. If you only use it for texting, you’re a [...]

Kodak-Playsport

The digital camera that I’ve been using for over 10 years finally died. I guess it’s a good thing it died because the technology has advanced so much over the past 10 years that the bulky3.2 megapixel camera was nothing but a dinosaur that I should have put out to pasture several years ago. When [...]

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 [...]

Dragon Naturally Speaking

I recently upgraded from Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 9 to version 11. I’ve got to say that version 11 soars leaps and bounds above version 9. It’s hard to compare and 9 to 11 because they’re almost like two entirely different animals. Many moons ago when I purchased Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 9, I spent quite a bit [...]

Cyber Acoustic AC 201

I purchased a Cyber Acoustic headset (AC-201) after my old Logitech headset died. Because I didn’t need it for anything spectacular, I looked for an inexpensive headset to plug into my digital voice recorder. You see, I use voice recognition software that translates my dictation from my digital voice recorder. The digital voice recorder is [...]

Word 2003

There are times when you need to perform a simple mathematical equation in Word, but you just don’t want to get up from your computer to locate your calculator. Even worse, you don’t want to take the time to search through your desktop for the Calculator software program. Fortunately, Word 2003 has a simple and [...]
