    I had buyers remourse. Cancelled my MBP 14" order :(

    And ordered the 16" instead !!! I didn't realize th 16" was only $200 more. I had to correct this mistake !!! A warning though: After the increase in Taxes and AppleCare (There is a $121 price increase to $399 for the 16" for some reason. 2" of screen can't cause all of that) the actual...

    Shortcut for Outlook dictate command

    Hey guys, This is in reference to the newly seeded version of Outlook 365 for the Mac. Dictation with Siri on the Mac is getting worse and worse with every new release. Catalina screwed it up beyond belief and it's not fixed in Big Sur either. In short, Siri simply sucks in macOS. One of the...

    I LIKE it !

    The search for the perfect mouse for my relatively large hands, and numb fingers due to peripheral Neuropathy may be over! This is the best solution I've found so far: The Roccat Kone Aimo. It's big. It fits my hand. It is just a tad bit slippery, but not a problem overall. The clickers...

    Looking for mouse with HEAVY mouse switches.

    Looking at maybe getting a mouse that requires above average to heavy pressure to actuate the mouse buttons. I no longer have any feeling in my fingers/fingertips and I'm constantly mis-clicking because I can't sense the pressure on the mouse button. Looking for a mouse that has clickers that...

    Brain Buster Hard Drive Issue...

    Ok, this has turned out to be a tough one. I have a 4TB external WD USB hard drive. It works fine, and mounts fine, on every machine I have, including my Mac, except for ONE. I can't figure it. It simply will not mount or show up on my main workstation. It won't even show up in the Drive...

    If you own a MacBook Pro 2016 or later (Touchbar era and to date), you probably know or have heard that there are issues with the funky thin keyboard in these things.

    Amazon - Echo Dot (2nd Gen) - $24.99

    The Dot is one of the most useful of all the Echo's. It has a golden feature most of them do not - A Stereo Minijack output. As best I can remember, only the Dot and the Spot have this. The others have BlueTeeth's, but... yuk, right? If you've wanted to delve into the world of Alexa, here's...

    Router Log Mess

    There seems to be a lot going on in my Netgear Router Log, and I can't make heads nor tails of it. Two things of interest. The constant apparently failed login attempts from my main desktop (.23) and the UpNp changes. Wednesday, December 26, 2018 15:06:04 [admin login] from source...

    Cold Waters....

    Cold Waters is on sale for 50% off. I've been keeping an eye on it. I'm a huge World of Warships fan. It's about the only game I play religiously, and the amount of money I've invested in it as an act against nature. So, is Cold Waters any good?

    TP-Link M9 Plus

    Anyone have this Mesh system? The reviews seem to be very good on it. I was considering this or the Netgear Orbi. My Netgear 7000 wireless has kinda been unreliable lately, and I'm ready, maybe, to make a change.

    Razer Synapse Software

    Ok, so I just got in my new BlackWidow Elite to replace the Chroma V2 I spilled coffee in :( I love my Razer keyboards, but this fucking Synapse Software is an adventure game all in it's own. NOTHING is done logically ! Two things I just cannot figure out, and they are very simple things...

    I done did a stupid user trick.....

    It can happen to any of us, and it's funny until YOU do it LOL I done dumped a cup of coffee into my beloved Razer BlackWidow Chrome V2 keyboard. One of, if not the, best keyboards ever made. It is, understandably, dead. Even after having sufficient time to dry out. No sugar involved, so I...

    Ok, this one belongs in a Twilight Zone Episode... I've just been made aware of a newer MBP in the fleet that is outputting 20v DC on the USB-C ports and is blowing up Imaging Keys left and right. I did a Google on it and indeed found at least one other reference to this problem. Anyone ever...

    What is wrong with my iPad ???

    I have an iPad Air Gen 1 on a swing arm in the kitchen. It's pretty much never been used off battery. The battery seems fine. At first thought it was because all the memory was used up (literally, zero bytes wer available for storage) so I cleared 16G. Nope. Didn't fix it. Rebooted. Nope...
