Tech Friday: Insect repellents and my AfterShokz headset

| September 13, 2019

Just a heads-up for others using AfterShokz bone conduction headphones while doing outdoorsy kinds of things where bug spray is used – DON’T.

Semi Music Monday trying iOS11 iPhone screen capture

| October 2, 2017

After hesitantly upgrading my iPhone 7 plus with Apple‘s new iOS 11 it was time to play with a few of the added features. One really interesting feature is capturing what is displaying on the screen in real time as a .mov file and storing it with your photos. What I did not expect was […]

Tech Friday: New “used” After Shokz bluetooth headset

| September 29, 2017

After slowly giving up on ever really making my “90% hearing loss” right ear useful again (due to  Ménière’s disease – posts 1 or 2), I had a chance to try out my buddy Jeff’s After Shokz bluetooth headset a couple weeks ago.

I thought, “hmm, this will work great on the desk and even […]

Those Google Goggles may not be that far off?

| September 26, 2012

The Internet was down for a while yesterday (might have been my network issue) and realized I could no longer tether to my Palm Pre.

A few more thoughts on the Palm Pre as June 6th nears

As a long time Palm OS user from Palm Pilots to Handspring Visors to Samsung i500 phones (my mother is currently using it) to the latest Treos and Centros … I’m waiting … and waiting … for the new Web OS … and waiting for a new physical keyboard PDA smartphone. The Palm Pre is […]
