Waze App

This Low Tech Grandma is blazing a new trail by learning how to use the WAZE app.  It’s a freely available turn-by-turn navigation app. I feel like I’m in the big league now.  The WAZE navigation app helped me to navigate a 933-mile road trip.  WAZE not only got me to my destination and back, [...]

Fire Stick Mouse

In the last post, I provided instructions on how I downloaded Google Chrome onto an Amazon Fire TV Stick. In that post, I also provided instructions for downloading an app that enables the Fire Stick remote to serve as a computer mouse. Now that you’ve installed Chrome and it’s accompanying mouse, I feel it necessary [...]

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 [...]

January, 2023: My article below is old and outdated.  For current steps on how to jailbreak the Amazon Fire TV Stick, please visit: https://www.firesticktricks.com/jailbreak-fire-stick.html I had a ton of information on how to jail break the fire stick but had to delete it because it was based upon a no longer available YouTube video. So, [...]

Po Pow Pay

My goodness, how children’s entertainment has changed. I remember many years ago when my kids were young, we used VHS tapes so they could watch their favorite shows. We watched shows such as the dreaded Barney, The Big Comfy Couch, Veggie Tales, Muppets and Wee Sing. On our bookshelf, we dedicated a couple of shelves [...]

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 [...]

No Scam

Unfortunately, there are more scams out there than anyone would like to imagine. Having been on the Internet for several years I think of myself as slightly tech savvy (yes, only slightly). I know how to spot the obvious scam. You know the ones I’m talking about, the one where the spelling is incorrect and [...]

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 [...]

Bloat

Why should I have to remove the Dell computer bloatware? Can’t they sell them without the bloat? About a month or so ago I purchased a new Dell desktop to serve as my “home base.” Being old school, I like having something that’s stationary and large. The laptop, tablet and cellphone are convenient, but there’s [...]
