Apple Smartwatch

Just wanted to start out with my purchase for Christmas, a new Apple smartwatch with GPS. I have not even opened the box yet. So I have to practice what I preach now because I have a new gadget that I will need to learn how to use. It started out as an order from Best Buy instead of Amazon due to a store credit card that would be cancelled if we didn’t use it by a certain date. (Please click on the Amazon link on this page to order new things) Therefore, I bought three new devices to play with. I originally bought the watch so I could set it up for my health and wanting a way where I would have GPS so I wouldn’t get lost when I am in new surroundings. Yes, I have days when I am not sure what day it is let alone where I am when I travel. I am hoping this will delay my need for a life alert necklace for me. There was an instance where I passed out and had to go to the emergency room about a year ago. If it had not been for my husband being home I am not sure what would have happened to me that day. So I figure with a smartwatch I will know what time it is along with what day it is and my heart rate so I don’t feel quite as forgetful In my old age. Then if I do faint, pass out or fall down I will be able to check my vital signs in case I don’t have my phone. I’m sure this watch will have all kinds of neat features that will help me keep better track of my health. So wish me luck on figuring out this new device. Then I also ordered a new tablet for myself and a furry fake cat for my dad who is eighty nine years young. I bought him a smartwatch too so I will have to figure mine out so I can teach him how to use his. So until next time, I will keep you all updated on my progress next post. Happy holidays to everyone and hope Santa brings you the new device’s you want this year. Remember to click on my Amazon link on this page. (In the process of getting a link up for eBay on my page also).

Calming Computer Jitters

I have to start out by saying I am not a professional computer technician, I am just an older, not quite senior citizen that is concerned about the older population not being able to access and use today’s technology to be able to improve their lives. The items that are listed on my page are just a tip of the iceberg when it comes to technology. However, I wanted our older community a way to be better able to understand some of these products and how they can help them every day in regards to safety, social and family technology. I think seniors are starting to embrace some of the newer things that are available to them, they are just not sure how to use them. I am hopeful that this website will be an easy to understand way to have seniors be able to see what is out there AND how to use it. It doesn’t do enough good just to introduce them to new technology if they are unsure if they will be able to use it. According to the Washington Post, millions of older adults are newly motivated to get online and participate in digital technology after being stuck inside, hoping to avoid coronavirus, for more than a year. Many of these people have purchased new technology only to have it sit in their homes still in boxes because they are afraid they won’t know how to use them.  A survey from AARP conducted in September and October found that older adults boosted technology purchases but more than half (54%) said they needed a better grasp of the devices that they acquired. Nearly 4 in 10 (37%) admitted they were not confident about using these technologies. A retired hospital operating room attendant is among them. “Computers put the fear in me” she told them, “but this pandemic made me realize I have to make a change and get over that.” With their daughters help they plan to turn on their new computer and figure out how to use it by consulting materials from Generations on Line. This is an organization that specializes in teaching older adults about digital devices and navigating the Internet. They discovered it through a local publication for the elderly. Before the pandemic, Generations on Line provided free in-person training sessions at senior centers, public housing complexes, libraries and retirement centers. When those programs shut dow, it created an online curriculum for smartphones and tablets.
I am hoping to be able to post things that will make it easier for older adults to get used to the items and know how to use them. I think there are places that teach the basics on smartphones and tablets, but many do not have a place or a family member to help them one on one. I think a lot of older adults don’t even have access to the internet either due to location or how much it costs to have internet in the first place. If they are lucky enough to have Internet in their home, they will be able to access this web page to show them what is available along with free help on using these items to the best of my knowledge or where to go when they have questions or concerns about these devices. I will be researching and posting things I think will be helpful to this generation.

Two Reasons 4K Televisions Rock

Buying a new television can be challenging, especially when there are so many to choose from.

For example, what’s the difference between 1080p and 4K?

Simple, the number of pixels, right?

Well, yes and no. There are several reasons why 4K televisions have become crowd-pleasers.

So, here are two reasons why.


The simplest way to explain it is that a 4K television has nearly four times the amount of pixels as their 1080p sibling.

However, just like cameras, the pixel density and number are best pointed out on large screens. Since television size is not important for some, neither will the number of pixels.
