Compare before you buy Audio Books

I have been receiving emails for a few weeks now with this great offer for low-cost audiobooks. I am sure I have been receiving these ads because I have been looking into finding some audiobooks to listen to during the day when I am working in the office. I received an ad for this great new low-cost audiobook service called “Chirp”. Once you sign up you will get many ads in your email with book deals of the day. I can say that most of them look really good from .99 up to $2.99. But when I went to look … Continue reading

January 11 2019 Work Day One

This is the first picture of my work desk with the iPad connected to a monitor. I talked about the device I am using to connect to the monitor in a earlier post. So what was my first impression of connecting to a larger screen? I truly found myself looking at the iPad screen more than the monitor. At times I found that even typing on the external keyboard the iPad was keeping up but the external monitor was not. For all of the server admins out there reading this post I found an App that is worth checking out. … Continue reading

A Week With The iPad

I know I have not written for awhile. I have been very busy working for a new school district. We are in the early stages of rebuilding the entire network from the ground up. I am in charge of all the iPads for this new district. I do use what is called a MDM or Mobile Device Manager to manage all of the iPads in the 7 buildings. Of course when you are rebuilding there are draw backs. We set up a new MDM Server and now we have to touch every iPad in the district to connect all of … Continue reading

Using The iPad Day to Day

I was asked why I didn’t do my experiment for one week with the iPad? The truth is I didn’t get the video connector until this Friday. So why did I need the video connector? I wanted to increase my viewing size as you can see and put the iPad screen on a larger monitor. I am also using the on-screen keyboard to type this post because I can not use Grammarly with the external keyboard. I am much more nervous using the iPad for a week then I was using the Chromebook. I think for things like email and … Continue reading

Two Step Authentication 

Keeping your personal data safe from others is always a up hill battle. Seems like everyone and every company is getting hacked these days. Most people don’t even think of securing their own data. How many times I walk into a office to work on a machine and find the password written on a post-it-note and see it sticking to the monitor. Or when I see people sitting in a coffee shop at the mall checking their banking accounts using public WiFi or their cell data just kills me. I know using Two-Factor Authentication is a pain in the butt … Continue reading

IPad Posting

I am sending this from a normal size IPad. I am again using a blue tooth keyboard. I know one thing for sure it is easy to read the screen with the larger screen. I just ordered a 10.1″ NextBook. It almost looks like a Surface. It has a full version of Windows 10.1 Pro and comes with a FREE 1 year subscription of Office 2013. I will be posting from it this week I hope. I will also be adding some pictures that everyone has been asking for. I you have any questions please drop me a comment and … Continue reading

I don’t know if you currently read books? But I have been reading a lot lately part of my up coming New Years Resolution is to read more novels this year. I am normally lucky to read eight books a year and this coming year I am shooting for fifteen. With that said; I have been playing around a little with audio books. Once called books on tape these have not become books on MP3’s. I wanted to give you some of my thoughts on this media. Let’s begin with the price. If you sign up for the major audio … Continue reading
