My hoa called the neighbor, told him that I had made the complaint then asked him to fix it. He did, but I also had a lovely garden of rosemary and lavender pulled up by someone. Now my next door neighbor has 5 adult beagles and 19 puppies. I am hopeful the puppies will go away at Christmas. They bark and howl in the backyard for long periods of time during the day and night. I called the police and animal control several times but was told ... Continue Reading


Re: Which tablet to start with?

On 12/20/2014 Rabid1 said: If you understand the value of the hardware anything Apple is not a great value for the cost. There are tons of sub $200 Android tablets now that out perform the iPad series. With many name brand Android again you pay for the name and not the performance. Samsung, Toshiba, Asus are all good tablets but they also overcharge for the name. There are good Android Brands like Teclast, Le Pan ( despite some dubious reviews here), are two good brands that give great value and performance. The Gigaset Mini which is here on QVC is an excellent tablet at an amazing price when... Continue Reading

Android Choices. Samsung has a lot of products on the market. They may introduce some new ones in 2015. The company is having a sale at two vendors. http://www.staples.com/Samsung-Galaxy-Tab-Pro-101-16GB-Black-Tablet/product_237425id=1219093181535&skuId=3715001 http://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-galaxy-tab-pro-8-4-16gb-black/3715001.p?

Re: HP Chrome vs. HP Stream - which one is the better choice?

In Electronics Talk 1419066225.997

These two reviews are from tech folks I trust. The HP Stream is a Window 8.1 product, and has some issues. http://recode.net/2014/12/18/hp-stream-13-review-a-low-cost-windows-alternative-to-chromebooks/ http://winsupersite.com/mobile/hp-stream-13-first-impressions Samsung Chrome book. http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/chrome-os-devices/XE503C32-K01US I would suggest a Chromebook, the Samsung Chromebook 2 13.3 with an HD display, and 4GB of RAM. Samsung give customers some goodies with a sale. Does your DH have an iPad? Continue Reading

Anyone can download it. This software is at a beta test stage. It is not the thing for the average customer to download and use. You need to be very tech savvy. Continue Reading


Re: Can someone explain Tracefone service to me? What do you get for 1 min?

On 12/18/2014 gardenman said: Just a note about 3g speed. The speed depends on the network, but generally speaking it's pretty fast. PC World Magazine did a coast to coast test in 13 major cities in 2012 and at that time T-Mobile was the fastest average speed at 3.84 mbps and Sprint was the slowest at 0.59 mbps. In that same test they also tested 4g speed in those same cities using the same providers and found that Sprint's 4g service was 2.81 mbps which is slower than T-Mobile's 3g service and just a tick faster than AT&T's 3g service (2.61 mbps), so you don't always get more by paying m...

On 12/18/2014 gabstoomuch said: geeee, so much to think about. Buying a phone is as complicated as buying a new TV now. I hope how to keep track of minutes is not too complicated. Does Tracfone show you on a screen somewhere what your 'minutes left' is? The thought of teaching him to use a phone that does not have "buttons" might freak him out lol. My kids can fly using a touch pad keyboard. I, myself, can fly only if I have a stylus. If I lose my stylus I am sunk. On this phone the keypad to make a call looks nice and big (the numbers). I suppose he can always say "no way I can't do it" and ... Continue Reading
