Re: Bose bluetooth sunglasses

Rick Alfaro
 

Hi. I have a pair of the Bose Tempos and absolutely love them. Podcasts and music sound quite good considering the size of the speaker drivers. Music sounds fuller than what you might think on a BlueTooth pair of sun glasses. The Tempos have a longer battery life than the other models which is why I decided on that model. They are expensive but last longer and sound better than other brands and models I have personally tried. Good luck.





Warmest regards

Rick Alfaro

Subject: [TechTalk] Bose bluetooth sunglasses

Hi all,


If any of you have the Bose bluetooth sunglasses, I know music sounds good but what about podcasts for example? I'm debating on buying a pair, and I'd probably listen to music a good bit with them but my main thing that I'd be doing with them for now is listening to old-time radio shows playing from an app on my phone while I'm walking on my treadmill.


I know that not everybody listens to old-time radio, but since they are mostly voice as are podcasts I thought I might be able to get a good idea if the glasses are something I'd like by knowing what podcasts sound like. Right now I have a neck speaker hanging around my neck when I'm on the treadmill with my ears uncovered, and sometimes I can hear what I'm listening to and sometimes I can't and that's with the volume of the phone and the volume of the speaker around my neck both set at maximum.


Thanks in advance for any comments.

Other flavors include Tenor, Soprano, and Rondo.

And, I'll tell Santa not to get out the sleds yet, I can wait my turn. Fun

Sis Donna, the Bose sunglasses come in a few flavors! And, since you're in
my village, please take a trip to Bestbuy and play with them to your heart's
content before shelling out nearly $250 or thereabout for one. Walmart or
Microcenter might have them too.

So, dear sis, buy an extra pair, put them near the chimney, Santa will pick
'em up for me, she comes by in November. Enjoy and have a splendid,
beautiful day!

Olusegun, Santa won't be leaving any of these sunglasses at my house. I almost had a heart attack when I saw the price of $250+/- per pair. I was hoping $125 max, because they would serve two purposes for my 11yr old son, sunglasses & bluetooth to connect to his Apple watch. For me to pay $250 there better be a weekly maid to come clean up his room included.

outlook account/contacts issues

Madison Martin
 

Hi all,
Not sure if any of these issues can be fixed, but I figured I'd ask since you guys have helped me out before. I created an outlook.com account on Monday and since Tuesday I've had some issues that I'd like fixed. I have a bunch of old messages that I've kept and when I imported everything they were in my inbox, but yesterday I looked and I noticed that the oldest message that was there was from a year ago, but I had ones from 2018, 2019 and earlier in 2020. I also have 5 folders within my inbox and I noticed yesterday that all of the messages that were in one of the folders were gone as well. Any idea what could've happened to all of these messages between when I imported everything and yesterday, and also is there any way I might be able to get them back? Before anyone asks/assumes I didn't delete any of them, if I was going to do that I would've done that before I imported stuff. I don't look at any of these messages regularly, but I kept them just in case I ever needed/wanted to refer back to any of the info in any of them. Now when I imported all of my contacts I got some message saying that they couldn't be imported into this folder (the contacts one in outlook that comes up when you press control 3) so they'd be placed in another folder with the same name and that got put up where the sent and junk folders and those sorts of folders are. So I went into it and I was able to read through my contacts, but I wasn't able to do anything with them, like delete or edit any of them. Any idea why I might've gotten this message and if there's any way that I can get my contacts back into the normal contacts folder so that I can do stuff with them again when I need/want too? Now this account isn't an imap account like my other two accounts are, it's a Microsoft exchange account, I didn't ask for it to be created like this, it's just how it happened, could this explain any of my issues? I'd love to have it be an imap account, but not sure if it's possible to change this and even if it is I don't know how to do it. I'm using the latest versions of Jaws, Office 365 and Windows 10. Really hope there's something that can be done to help me, any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!!!! Thanks Madison

Hi Troy.

I had a pair. The battery died after less than two years sadly.

Personally I don't think they really sound good for music. My reason for buying them was to use with GPS apps as they do not cover the ears. If I were you I'd consider the air pods pro. They sound much better.

Re: a jaws-friendly hard drive tester?

I'm thinking that simply running CHKDSK does not correct any errors.  One must add the appropriate command line options to make the program do anything.

I don’t know what leads you to believe that the hard drive has errors.  If you repeatedly run check Disk and you still have problems possibly attributable to the hard drive, then the drive may not be reliable.  Check Disk corrects the errors it can and if it can, it moves data out of bad sectors to good ones.  Ongoing hard drive errors suggests continuing degredation of the hard drive. 
 
But not knowing what problems you have had in the past, I wouldn’t assume the hard drive is the problem.  Memory problems can cause corruption.  Perhaps other things I am not aware of.

I know this desktop is pretty old; in fact it was a refurb when I got it a couple years back and I feel like the hard drive has always had some errors. But when I sent out an email a few minutes ago there was a message referring to a possible corrupt database. I know there's check disk and sfc /scannow, but when you restart to run check disk it doesn't tell you what it found when the computer starts after the check. I'm using windows 7 and jaws 2019. Is there a good and thorough hard drive checker that gives the results so you can hear the results using jaws? I know some of these are graphical and unclear as far as showing results, so I hope there's a good one available so I can see what's possibly wrong.

There has been a Python upgrade since the 2018 Snapshot you are using. It may be necessary to replace the entire portable directory with the latest TWBLUE snapshot and re-authorise. I can confirm the latest Snapshot is working well here.
