First, THANK YOU to all of you who have followed my blog, interacted with me in your comments and questions, and for coming back again! I started this blog to challenge myself to build a website. I was thrilled when I set up my website and people, YOU, actually read it and liked the content. First time someone commented, “you’re post are so easy to read and the directions are so easy to follow”, I knew that I would continue this blog for a long time! 😊 That’s exactly why I started writing about Apple devices! Other milestones I’ve hit … Continue reading Milestones 100+ Followers!

UPDATED 9/15/18: The video link was not loading. Please see the directions and screen shots below. Thanks Apple! I have not used this app or even heard of it before. So this is not a recommendation, I happened to be an app that Apple is giving away free until 9/25/18. Wanted to share this with you because Apple must think it’s pretty good if they decided to give it away. I used the Apple Store app (you can download it from the App Store) to look at the pricing for the new Apple Watch and new iPhones for a post … Continue reading UPDATED: Free Camera App
Wow! I was only able to watch the Apple Watch 4 presentation and I fell in love with the watch all over again! The addition of Fall detection and ability to record an EKG was way more than I expected. Plus the watch function is FDA approved! That’s a huge accomplishment for Apple. This will be an amazing tool for patients to keep their physicians informed. I hate when you’ve been sick and your symptoms disappear the morning of your appointment! Below is a link that has lots of information shown during the event, as well as stories they … Continue reading Apple’s Event

Lots of rumors going around and “leaks” of what’s coming from Apple tomorrow. My excitement is getting the best of me! 📱👩🏻💻⌚️🖥💻 However, I’ve learned not to believe it until I see it. If you would like to listen to the event, there are multiple ways. If you are on Twitter, search for Apple’s verified account and they will post a link there for you to click that you “like” the tweet and they’ll send you a link. Typically so many people are logging in, I usually have a couple alternatives. You can do a Google search, how to watch … Continue reading Tomorrow is the Day!

Have you wondered, how do I close those darn rings? The Stand ring has been one that’s hard for me to close since I have a full time desk job. But I still try to get up and stretch even if I can’t leave my desk to walk around a little. The name, Stand ring is a little misleading. It’s not just stand, it’s move around for 1 minute also. Help with What the Rings Mean Each ring is designed to really get you moving. Stand, Exercise, Move. They look really good when they are closed. Plus it’s motivating to see … Continue reading Close Your Rings!

Annoying Ads Have you ever searched for a specific pair of shoes on Amazon and the next few days you see several ads on Facebook for the same or similar shoes? I hate when that happens!😡 This is referred to as “cross over tracking” of your search history. So whatever you search can be linked into another app like Facebook or Twitter to show you ads for similar items. Do you know how many “new animal product” ads pop up because I’ve watched 100’s of cat videos? 😹😹😹 Reduce/Stop Ads This is something I did when I first got my … Continue reading Do You Hate Ads?
