Hey there, Tech Savvy fans! This week I have one last treat before Christmas arrives, and it may be just the thing you need to gather everyone for some carols or some firelight music while you watch your stockings hung on the mantle with care. It's the K-Board Smart Keyboard by Keith McMillen Instruments. If you know me, you know that I really enjoy music and have dabbled in playing some instruments over the years. One that I've never really gotten into, and have always wanted to, was the piano.
Hey there, Tech Savvy fans! As the year is coming to a close I thought it might be fun to take a look back and see what predictions came true that I had made and share some fun facts with you. Here are my predictions and my take on if they came through. Decline of PCs: Man, if it's happening, I'm not really seeing it a whole lot, at least in a practical sense. I do see less marketing and pushes for computers and such than what we had seen in the past, but the fact of the matter is, there is still a core group of people that rely on desktop computers on a daily basis. Is that changing? Yes.
Hey there, Tech Savvy fans! I'm excited this week to share with you a solution I've found for an issue I've been dealing with for some time now. As we all know, it's unsafe (not to mention illegal in many cases) to use our phones while driving.
Hey there, Tech Savvy fans! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a great day stuffed, literally, with turkey, potatoes and all other kinds of fantastic food shared with family. This week I reached into the mailbox to answer a couple requests that readers sent in. So, here we go. Our first question came from someone asking: "We have a box full of older games that were a lot of fun for our kids to play when they were younger and I was reading about DOS Box and was wondering how hard it would be to get those older versions of ms-dos games to run?" Great question.
Hey there, Tech Savvy fans! As promised this week I get to share with you a unique experience that I had this past week. I was invited to the first ever Verizon Tech Holiday Fashion Show at their Destination store in the Mall of America in Bloomington. I have to admit, when I was first invited I was a little concerned - for I am certainly no authority on fashion.
Hey there, Tech Savvy fans! This week, you get a whole mishmash of things.
Hey there, Tech Savvy fans! Leading up into the Christmas season we'll be providing extended reviews on many of the items that you will find in our Gift Guide. This year the Tech Savvy Gift Guide will be published on Nov. 9, and like previous years it will be in the form of a four-page insert that acts as a "jacket" for the other inserts.
Hey there, Tech Savvy fans! This week I get to share with you my personal experience on the iPhone 6 Plus courtesy of our friends at AT&T. As many iPhone users have been (secretly) hoping for, an adult sized version of the iPhone is now available in the iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus. I say secretly because, as many Apple fans already know, Steve Jobs famously stated that no one needs or wants a larger screen.
Hey there, Tech Savvy fans! This week I get a chance to tell you about a phone that I've actually reviewed before, but it's not the same. The HTC One M8 for Windows. If you recall I took a look at the HTC One a little while back and I also have an HTC DNA, which was the predecessor to the One.
Hey there, Tech Savvy fans! This week we're going to take a look at an issue, and a solution, for a problem many of us face. I'm a parent. I have three beautiful children and my oldest is just going to be 8. It's an amazing age where she is becoming so independent and has the ability to learn so many things. She can help me cook in the kitchen, she loves creating art projects and she's recently taken up learning how to crochet and sew.
