I would go for the 7 but that's because to me I would rather have
apples latest tech and the style of the 7 is nicer than the se. If you
could get a 6s on a sweet deal though I would say go for it though.

I have tried to fix this problem and reinstall the drivers, but for love or money, I just cannot fine the right drivers to install. Can anyone help out

To be perfectly blunt, ILA doesn't give a rat's ass about offering an
audible or otherwise accessible battery tester. I actually spoke to them
about this a few years ago and was told that there was no longer such a
device on the market, and it would be too expensive for them to manufacture
one of their own design. At one time, ILA did, in fact, sell proprietary
products that they designed and manufactured exclusively themselves. I
still have a working talking clock radio that they sold exclusively about
ten years ago, but they stopped selling it because they found it cheaper to
offer a mainstream clock radio that happened to have a built-in talking
clock.

Re: 10 USB Gadgets You Never Thought Were Real.

where is this article? I couldn't locate it on google.

Wait a minute! I went through all that just to have #1 redacted?
Hahahahahahahaha!

Hi All,

Just thought y'all would get a bit of entertainment from the folloing!
Note: The #1 device was removed because it was entirely inappropriate for
this list due to sexual connotations.


Here are some outrageous USB Gadgets. You know someone has lots of time on
their hands.



Honorable mention:

Butt Cooler



This Thanko USB butt cooler sound like a pretty odd device, but if you are
stuck in an office cube farm where the AC is either nonexistent or set to
sweltering hot due to "cost cutting procedures", having a fan keep your butt
from sweating may sound down right perfect.


While it relies solely upon air movement to make you feel cooler, it can do
just that by circulating fresh air over the one part of your body that
usually sweats first when sitting in a chair: your butt. Where the fan is
obviously a small 5V fan, don't expect it to work miracles. However, during
hot days, even a little bit of air movement can help make things a lot more
bearable.



10. Head Massager

While it may look like a helmet from the movie TRON, the latest crazy gadget
from Thanko is, in fact, a USB-powered head massager. As the name suggests,
this 434g plastic helmet wraps around your head and applies vibration
therapy to the various pressure points on your forehead and scalp.



To power the built-in vibratory engines, all a user need do is simply plug
the helmet into a free USB port. Since heads come in different sizes, the
massager is height adjustable so as to fit as many different heads as
possible. Additionally, the intensity of the vibrations is customizable via
the integrated dial so as to help create the perfect scalp massage.



9. Microscopes aren't just for scientists. Even everyday nerds enjoy
satisfying their curiosity and getting a close-up look at life on a tiny
scale. The QX5 USB Microscope zooms up to 200X magnification and takes
digital photos, video, and time-lapse movies. It comes with sample jars,
slides, tweezers, an eye dropper, and a super-bright LED for lighting up
your specimens.



8. Having trouble keeping pets and plants alive? Don't fret--there's a USB
fix for that. Try out the Glowing Aquarium. When you plug it into your USB
port, its LED will light up, and a small motor will generate a current
inside, which causes the toy fish to swim. All you have to be responsible
for is adding water. Easy!



7. Do-it-yourself was never so techie. The USB VersaLaser--that's right, a
device based on a real laser--will etch words and images into wood, plastic,
stone, glass, or just about anything. So if you have a roommate with sticky
fingers, you can put your name, or even your face, on everything you own.



6. Your computer crashed, again. Your boss is yelling at you to meet that
deadline, and your car won't start. Don't you just feel like blowing up the
world? Well, now you can. Just break out the Armageddon Hub, flip the two
switches, turn the key, open the plastic cover, and push the red "ultimate
destruction" button. Okay, nothing will actually happen (except some loud
honking noises), but the Armageddon Hub actually does serve a useful
purpose--it doubles as a four-port USB hub. And it's useful for taunting
people with the occasional: "If you don't leave me alone, I'm going to blow
up the world."



5. Do you regularly have to dodge paperclips and rubber bands launched by
your cubicle neighbors? Escalate your inter-desk warfare with this USB
Laser-Guided Missile Launcher, which tilts and pivots remotely via the
included software. A laser sight helps to ensure accuracy for strategic
attacks, or you can connect as many launchers as you have USB ports for some
serious shock and awe. (Ambitious coders can also create their own
missile-launching applications with the freely downloadable API.)



4. USB Scan Toaster

Manufacturer: Sung Bae Chang, a design student at Sejong University in South
Korea.

What It Is: This USB-powered toaster that "prints" text and images onto
bread or other compatible materials was one of nine finalists out of more
than 600 entries from 49 countries in last year's Electrolux Design Lab
competition.

Why You Want It: It's a toaster that connects to a computer and prints out
news, weather reports and much more onto your breakfast. 'Nuff said.



3. If a prize were awarded for the grisliest flash drive design ever, the
winner would be this one, which looks just like half of a human thumb. I'm
sure there's a hitchhiking joke in this somewhere, but most people would
likely be too busy gagging to think of it.



2. The eye massager


Ok, let's read that again, but take a look at the picture to the right
first. Eye massager. Is that red hand supposed to be an eye massager? I
mean, doesn't it look like something that might get you blind? I don't want
this one anywhere near my eyes. Phew. "Hey dude, come over here - I'm gonna
massage your eyes with THIS!"

The only possibility which occurs to me based on the error, is that there is at least one partition on the selected disk which is not compatible with the Volume Shadow service.  I.E. A partition formatted as FAT32 or some other incompatible file system.  Although you would think Active@ Disk Image Lite would be smart enough to just copy such partitions directly.

As for selecting disk 1, that is fine.  Although it is much more common for the primary/system disk to be on controller 0.  I'm not sure about the error, but Active@ Disk Image Lite has not been updated as recently as the two paid applications I mentioned so I can't 100% vouch for it's reliability on Windows 10.  The only reason I still recommend it is because I myself and others have successfully used it to image and restore Windows 10.

Any of the applications I listed can save an image to an external drive and they are all accessible.  I don't have exact instructions written out for each one so you will have to choose one and take the time to familiarize yourself with the interface.  Creating an image with all of them is fairly straight forward.  If you have any questions after making the attempt, you can always post again.

You can use a third-party imaging utility such as Image for Windows

or Drive Snapshot.
http://www.drivesnapshot.de/en/
If you want something free, you can try Active@ Disk Image Lite
http://www.disk-image.net/disk-image-freeware.htm
All of the above are accessible.  Although if you are not overly familiar with imaging concepts or how to go about restoring an image, the simplest option is probably Drive Snapshot.  It has a feature which allows you to automatically restore an image on the next reboot.  This means that you won't have to boot into a rescue environment to restore an image as you would have to do with almost any other imaging software.  If you are more confident in your technical capabilities, you can also use my WinPE images
http://opopanax.net/download/
to restore an image with any of the above utilities.

As for selecting disk 1, that is fine.  Although it is much more common for the primary/system disk to be on controller 0.  I'm not sure about the error, but Active@ Disk Image Lite has not been updated as recently as the two paid applications I mentioned so I can't 100% vouch for it's reliability on Windows 10.  The only reason I still recommend it is because I myself and others have successfully used it to image and restore Windows 10.

Any of the applications I listed can save an image to an external drive and they are all accessible.  I don't have exact instructions written out for each one so you will have to choose one and take the time to familiarize yourself with the interface.  Creating an image with all of them is fairly straight forward.  If you have any questions after making the attempt, you can always post again.

and is the creating of the immage accessible?
what I gather from what you’ve said so far makes me understand that rebooting using the immage is accessible in the first option and I can use the immage through the winpe
however, I’m not clear on creating said immage.

You can use a third-party imaging utility such as Image for Windows
http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/image-for-windows.htm
or Drive Snapshot.
http://www.drivesnapshot.de/en/
If you want something free, you can try Active@ Disk Image Lite
http://www.disk-image.net/disk-image-freeware.htm
All of the above are accessible.  Although if you are not overly familiar with imaging concepts or how to go about restoring an image, the simplest option is probably Drive Snapshot.  It has a feature which allows you to automatically restore an image on the next reboot.  This means that you won't have to boot into a rescue environment to restore an image as you would have to do with almost any other imaging software.  If you are more confident in your technical capabilities, you can also use my WinPE images
http://opopanax.net/download/
to restore an image with any of the above utilities.

hi guys and girls
so I’ve just installed everything on my new computer from scratch, everything works perfectly, how do I back this up so that if anything goes rong I can just either recall this from a hard drive flash drive, group of dvds or what? or is there some way in win10 I can just let it do this so that if something goes rong I could just go to some setting and let it restore back to this state, however, I would much prefer to have it completely indipendent of this so that it doesn’t stand a chance of being tainted.
in other words, I’d like to be able to reinstall after a format, to this exact state that my computer is at now, without having to reinstall everything and setting up everything again.
Is this possible?
 
much appriciated.

No, it is from the blind point of view.  The conference is held in a app called zoom, and the 2nd link, when activated at the scheduled time, as long as zoom is installed, it will take you directly to the active conference.  I am the host of this conference, and I am totally blind, if you have any trouble with it, or any questions, just email me at

Yes, I talked to them several times. Ken, of TechTalk also talked to them on my behalf, to no avail.

I'm not trying to smear them, just to warn you to be very sure that you will find acceptable what ever they send you, because once they have your money, it's gone for good.

To be perfectly blunt, ILA doesn't give a rat's ass about offering an
audible or otherwise accessible battery tester. I actually spoke to them
about this a few years ago and was told that there was no longer such a
device on the market, and it would be too expensive for them to manufacture
one of their own design. At one time, ILA did, in fact, sell proprietary
products that they designed and manufactured exclusively themselves. I
still have a working talking clock radio that they sold exclusively about
ten years ago, but they stopped selling it because they found it cheaper to
offer a mainstream clock radio that happened to have a built-in talking
