Hahahha, “For an inexpensive tablet for watching videos, reading books, listening to music, browsing the web, checking email, and using Facebook, Amazon’s Kindle

Fire tablets are a fine deal.”

That were the answers to my questions.

So, what’s the voice on these tablets. Also, do I swipe and double tap like on an ipad? I know what’s her name, alexa, will answer after pressing the home button, but that’s different from when navigating the darn thing right? The home screen sounds boring too, but I’m blind, why should that matter right? Smile.

Thanks for the article.

Not something I've seriously investigated, but don't Fire tablets run a limited version of Android?  In which case, wouldn't you be better off just buying a standard Android tablet?  You can find some Android tablets for as little as $80 to $100.

Hi,

I’m googling and trying to find the newest articles discussing the differences between fire tablets and ipads.

What can yall tell me about the differences. Before I end this, hopefully the question not asked is “Well, depends what you are using it for.”

Just quick questions, and feel free to unload with your general answer, but can you practically do the same thing on a fire tablet like what you can do on an ipad?

Download apps, surf the net, check email, things like that.

Unless the google hit was incorrect, I am seeing a $50 fire tablet out there now.

I mean, if it can do what I just listed, I’ll save $150 for purchasing a fire tablet smile.

A World Free of Charging Cables?  It's All Up To Apple
By Roger Cheng/CNET

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge features wireless charging, and successor the S8
will likely have the same capability.

The pitch has always been a simple one: Place your phone down and watch it
charge automatically, without the fuss of finding an outlet or connecting a
power cord.

The reality of wireless charging, however, has been anything but.

Differing technologies and incompatible standards have hindered broader
adoption of wireless charging. It was good enough to work in Oral-B electric
toothbrushes in the early '90s, yet most phones still lack the ability to
charge without a power cord.

But 2017 appears to be the year wireless charging gets its act together.
You're starting to see an accelerating trickle of products incorporating the
feature, from a Dell laptop unveiled at CES to automakers looking for a way
to more easily power their electric vehicles. The most obvious spark could
come from Apple, which appears ready to get off the sidelines and commit to
the feature in a big way by joining the Wireless Power Consortium. The
rumors of the iPhone 8 getting wireless charging alone are enough to get
people thinking about the feature.

"Whoever Apple picks wins," said Avi Greengart, an analyst at research firm
Global Data. "That's the catalyst that would drive enough volume."

Apple declined to comment on how the WPC will impact the next iPhone.

"Apple is an active member of many standards development organizations, as
both a leader and contributor," the company said. "Apple is joining the
Wireless Power Consortium to be able to participate and contribute ideas to
the open, collaborative development of future wireless charging standards."

An embrace of wireless charging by the iPhone maker could mean a resurgence
of interest in the feature. Last year, "things lost steam a bit," according
to IHS analyst David Green. Yes, the number of wireless charging devices
grew 40 percent year over year in 2016, but that was largely because Samsung
incorporated the feature into its Galaxy S7 and Note 7 phones.

And just because wireless charging is in a phone doesn't mean consumers are
taking advantage of it -- or even aware of the capability.

The market is expected to nearly double to 375 million devices in 2017, and
Green said he expects at least one more player to publicly embrace wireless
charging at the Mobile World Congress trade show next week.

Obvious benefits

Phone makers for years have touted wireless charging as a key feature. Nokia
famously championed it with its flagship Lumia phones, and Google and LG
incorporated it into the Nexus 4 phone.

Those companies used a technology called inductive charging -- the same as
that electric toothbrush -- which requires you to place the device on a
charging pad in a specific position.

Newer forms of wireless charging open the door to different applications.
Magnetic resonance gives you a bit more freedom, so you don't have to lay
your phone down at an exact spot. It can charge multiple devices with
different power needs. It can also charge across a few inches and through
objects, so you can mount a charging pad under a table rather than have a
specific built-in inductive charger in your furniture (which Ikea actually
offers).

That ability to charge over a short distance is an opportunity for
automakers and their electric cars. Alex Gruzen, CEO of WiTricity, which
builds chips to power magnetic resonance technology, said he's planning for
car launches in 2020 that will take advantage of the technology. He sees
phones capable of using magnetic resonance coming next year.

"Wireless charging is part of everyone's future roadmap," Gruzen said.

Meanwhile, companies like Energous are exploring sending power over radio
frequency airwaves, similar to how online connectivity gets broadcast over
Wi-Fi. In fact, Energous plans to integrate its power broadcasting
capabilities into Wi-Fi routers next year.

Beyond phones, that kind of capability would be ideal for low-power sensors
like smoke detectors or even smaller devices like hearing aids.

While the idea of charging something 15 feet away sounds great, there are
questions about how quickly you can charge over the air. Energous also needs
to get approval from the Federal Communications Commission to ensure its
system is safe.

"We are quite comfortable that we have developed tech that conforms to their
guidelines," said Energous CEO Steve Rizzone.

How did we get into this mess?

Here's where things get confusing.

Despite the range of technologies, the standards battles have largely been
fought around two incompatible versions of inductive charging.

On one side is Qi, championed by the Wireless Power Consortium. It boasts,
by far, the most wireless charging products.

On the other side is a form of inductive charging pushed by Powermat and the
AirFuel Alliance, an amalgamation of two former groups that now also
embraces magnetic resonance and radio frequency charging. (I told you this
was confusing.)

Powermat has invested in building a network of charging stations in retail
locations like Starbucks and McDonald's, but has fewer phones in the market
using its technology.

Samsung actually had a chance to provide some clarity, but opted to play
nice and incorporate both versions into its Galaxy S phones. That just led
to more confusion, with both standards crowing about being in the
high-profile devices.

"By not picking the winner, it almost prolongs the pain," Greengart said.

Talking to the two sides is like talking to a Golden State Warriors fan and
a Cleveland Cavaliers fan: You're going to get two distinct realities.

"They're not there," WPC Chairman Menno Treffers said of the competition.
"There's not much of a battle anymore."

"The adoption is so small now, there's no one to say what the standard is
going to look like," said Ron Resnick, chairman of the AirFuel Alliance.

You can see why we're still in a logjam.

Where Apple comes in

Apple could provide some clarity. Earlier this month, it confirmed it had
joined the WPC, sparking speculation that the purported iPhone 8 would
include wireless charging.

It isn't just joining for show. Treffers said that Apple is expected to make
a technical contribution to Qi and that company representatives were in
London last week making a presentation, part of a broader gathering of
members.

WPC membership doesn't guarantee that the iPhone uses Qi. Note that the
Apple Watch uses a form of inductive charging too.

But if Apple commits to Qi, Powermat CEO Elad Dubzinski said his network of
charging stations could support the standard with a mix of hardware and
software tweaks. He said he was more concerned with managing the network of
services that would flow on top of wireless charging, say, at a Starbucks.

There's also the persistent chatter that Apple is exploring wireless
charging over several feet, which is where Energous could come into play.
Rizzone has hinted at a "key strategic partner," which many have taken to
mean Apple.

Energous has given this partner a one-year exclusivity deal for a specific
product category. Given Apple's eagerness to lock up new features for
itself, the deal might signal that future iPhones could embrace radio
frequency charging.

And that ultimately could be the answer, with companies incorporating
inductive or magnetic resonance for faster charging over shorter distances,
and radio frequency to help keep your battery topped off.

No matter how things shake out, it may take Apple to light the way.

"It's a chicken-and-egg problem that can only be solved by a fruit,"
Greengart said.

Re: Problems with Winrar

Also, if you are referring to files with an exe extension, they don't use whatever extraction utilities are on your computer.  They are self-extracting, that is, they have whatever is necessary in the files themselves, to extract them.  That's one reason people create them.  The person extracting them can do so whether the person has extraction programs on the machine or not.  Self-extracting archives don't even look to see if any programs such as winrar are on the machine.  They don't use them in any way.  It is important to know if you are referring to these kinds of files, with an exe extension and if so, what happens when you press enter on them.

Yes, the word application makes it very difficult to know what you are discussing.  Some files have an exe extension and are called something like self extracting archives.  You should just be able to cause them to extract by pressing enter on them.  If that is what you are referring to, let us know and explain what happens when you press enter on the file.  Why do you believe they are self-extracting rar files and not self-extracting zip files?  Either way, you press enter on them.  If you are referring to other files such as files that end with the rar extension, let us know. 
Whatever problems you are having, using the 64 bit version of the program will be unlikely, perhaps very unlikely, to solve them.

I'm not sure what you mean when you say, "fully loaded with everything in it's place".  7-Zip is no more or less difficult to use than WinRAR.  In fact, the procedure for extracting an archive with either one is almost exactly the same.  If you are receiving an error that says a particular file is damaged, then that file is most likely corrupted and you will probably receive a similar error if you try to extract it using WinRAR.  In either case, there is no version of WinRAR which is specifically for Windows 7.  You can download 32 and 64 bit editions which will work on most versions of Windows from it's homepage here.

Thanks Carlos, I went to programs and found the uninstall feature and fixed it.

 

But now do you have a windows 7 64 bit version of Winrar that I can download and use. I need it to be fully loaded with everything in it’s place. The one I have isn’t set up and that’s where I made the major mistake to try to fix it.

 

I need the one where you can just download and set it up on your desktop. 7 zip is not the easiest program to use and is very confusing to me, I can extract from it but it tells me that the file has been damaged during email or the attachment stage, when I’m only trying to open, select and move them to a perminit folder. So you see my dilemma. I hate programs I can’t use by myself. And on the first try too.

You may not have been looking in the correct place, but if zip files were associated with WinRAR, the chances are that there was in fact an uninstall entry.  At least in Programs and Features.  The problem you are experiencing is being caused because zip files are currently associated with WinRAR which is now missing.  If you had uninstalled the program instead of simply deleting it, the uninstall procedure would have restored the default zip file association.  After you reinstall WinRAR, type

Programs and Features

into the

"Start"

menu search field.  When you find it, press Enter.  When Programs and Features opens, look for WinRAR in the list of installed applications and then press Enter to uninstall it.

You should never just delete an application unless it is absolutely necessary because you may experience exactly these types of problems.  My suggestion would be to reinstall WinRAR and then correctly uninstall it from Programs and Features or from it's uninstall shortcut in the

"Start"

menu.  The default zip extract options should then be restored.

Yes, the word application makes it very difficult to know what you are discussing.  Some files have an exe extension and are called something like self extracting archives.  You should just be able to cause them to extract by pressing enter on them.  If that is what you are referring to, let us know and explain what happens when you press enter on the file.  Why do you believe they are self-extracting rar files and not self-extracting zip files?  Either way, you press enter on them.  If you are referring to other files such as files that end with the rar extension, let us know. 
Whatever problems you are having, using the 64 bit version of the program will be unlikely, perhaps very unlikely, to solve them.

I'm not sure what you mean when you say, "fully loaded with everything in it's place".  7-Zip is no more or less difficult to use than WinRAR.  In fact, the procedure for extracting an archive with either one is almost exactly the same.  If you are receiving an error that says a particular file is damaged, then that file is most likely corrupted and you will probably receive a similar error if you try to extract it using WinRAR.  In either case, there is no version of WinRAR which is specifically for Windows 7.  You can download 32 and 64 bit editions which will work on most versions of Windows from it's homepage here.

Thanks Carlos, I went to programs and found the uninstall feature and fixed it.

 

But now do you have a windows 7 64 bit version of Winrar that I can download and use. I need it to be fully loaded with everything in it’s place. The one I have isn’t set up and that’s where I made the major mistake to try to fix it.

 

I need the one where you can just download and set it up on your desktop. 7 zip is not the easiest program to use and is very confusing to me, I can extract from it but it tells me that the file has been damaged during email or the attachment stage, when I’m only trying to open, select and move them to a perminit folder. So you see my dilemma. I hate programs I can’t use by myself. And on the first try too.

You may not have been looking in the correct place, but if zip files were associated with WinRAR, the chances are that there was in fact an uninstall entry.  At least in Programs and Features.  The problem you are experiencing is being caused because zip files are currently associated with WinRAR which is now missing.  If you had uninstalled the program instead of simply deleting it, the uninstall procedure would have restored the default zip file association.  After you reinstall WinRAR, type

Programs and Features

into the

Hi All,

 

I thought some of you would enjoy this article I received on another list.

Here is the text from a very interesting cNet article that I thought you may
find interesting. 

The URL to the original article is located as the end of the piece.

A World Free of Charging Cables?  It's All Up To Apple
By Roger Cheng/CNET

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge features wireless charging, and successor the S8
will likely have the same capability.

The pitch has always been a simple one: Place your phone down and watch it
charge automatically, without the fuss of finding an outlet or connecting a
power cord.

The reality of wireless charging, however, has been anything but.

Differing technologies and incompatible standards have hindered broader
adoption of wireless charging. It was good enough to work in Oral-B electric
toothbrushes in the early '90s, yet most phones still lack the ability to
charge without a power cord.

But 2017 appears to be the year wireless charging gets its act together.
You're starting to see an accelerating trickle of products incorporating the
feature, from a Dell laptop unveiled at CES to automakers looking for a way
to more easily power their electric vehicles. The most obvious spark could
come from Apple, which appears ready to get off the sidelines and commit to
the feature in a big way by joining the Wireless Power Consortium. The
rumors of the iPhone 8 getting wireless charging alone are enough to get
people thinking about the feature.

"Whoever Apple picks wins," said Avi Greengart, an analyst at research firm
Global Data. "That's the catalyst that would drive enough volume."

Apple declined to comment on how the WPC will impact the next iPhone.

"Apple is an active member of many standards development organizations, as
both a leader and contributor," the company said. "Apple is joining the
Wireless Power Consortium to be able to participate and contribute ideas to
the open, collaborative development of future wireless charging standards."

An embrace of wireless charging by the iPhone maker could mean a resurgence
of interest in the feature. Last year, "things lost steam a bit," according
to IHS analyst David Green. Yes, the number of wireless charging devices
grew 40 percent year over year in 2016, but that was largely because Samsung
incorporated the feature into its Galaxy S7 and Note 7 phones.

And just because wireless charging is in a phone doesn't mean consumers are
taking advantage of it -- or even aware of the capability.

The market is expected to nearly double to 375 million devices in 2017, and
Green said he expects at least one more player to publicly embrace wireless
charging at the Mobile World Congress trade show next week.

Obvious benefits

Phone makers for years have touted wireless charging as a key feature. Nokia
famously championed it with its flagship Lumia phones, and Google and LG
incorporated it into the Nexus 4 phone.

Those companies used a technology called inductive charging -- the same as
that electric toothbrush -- which requires you to place the device on a
charging pad in a specific position.

Newer forms of wireless charging open the door to different applications.
Magnetic resonance gives you a bit more freedom, so you don't have to lay
your phone down at an exact spot. It can charge multiple devices with
different power needs. It can also charge across a few inches and through
objects, so you can mount a charging pad under a table rather than have a
specific built-in inductive charger in your furniture (which Ikea actually
offers).

That ability to charge over a short distance is an opportunity for
automakers and their electric cars. Alex Gruzen, CEO of WiTricity, which
builds chips to power magnetic resonance technology, said he's planning for
car launches in 2020 that will take advantage of the technology. He sees
phones capable of using magnetic resonance coming next year.

"Wireless charging is part of everyone's future roadmap," Gruzen said.

Meanwhile, companies like Energous are exploring sending power over radio
frequency airwaves, similar to how online connectivity gets broadcast over
Wi-Fi. In fact, Energous plans to integrate its power broadcasting
capabilities into Wi-Fi routers next year.

Beyond phones, that kind of capability would be ideal for low-power sensors
like smoke detectors or even smaller devices like hearing aids.

While the idea of charging something 15 feet away sounds great, there are
questions about how quickly you can charge over the air. Energous also needs
to get approval from the Federal Communications Commission to ensure its
system is safe.

"We are quite comfortable that we have developed tech that conforms to their
guidelines," said Energous CEO Steve Rizzone.

How did we get into this mess?

Here's where things get confusing.

Despite the range of technologies, the standards battles have largely been
fought around two incompatible versions of inductive charging.

On one side is Qi, championed by the Wireless Power Consortium. It boasts,
by far, the most wireless charging products.

On the other side is a form of inductive charging pushed by Powermat and the
AirFuel Alliance, an amalgamation of two former groups that now also
embraces magnetic resonance and radio frequency charging. (I told you this
was confusing.)

Powermat has invested in building a network of charging stations in retail
locations like Starbucks and McDonald's, but has fewer phones in the market
using its technology.

Samsung actually had a chance to provide some clarity, but opted to play
nice and incorporate both versions into its Galaxy S phones. That just led
to more confusion, with both standards crowing about being in the
high-profile devices.

"By not picking the winner, it almost prolongs the pain," Greengart said.

Talking to the two sides is like talking to a Golden State Warriors fan and
a Cleveland Cavaliers fan: You're going to get two distinct realities.

"They're not there," WPC Chairman Menno Treffers said of the competition.
"There's not much of a battle anymore."

"The adoption is so small now, there's no one to say what the standard is
going to look like," said Ron Resnick, chairman of the AirFuel Alliance.

You can see why we're still in a logjam.

Where Apple comes in

Apple could provide some clarity. Earlier this month, it confirmed it had
joined the WPC, sparking speculation that the purported iPhone 8 would
include wireless charging.

It isn't just joining for show. Treffers said that Apple is expected to make
a technical contribution to Qi and that company representatives were in
London last week making a presentation, part of a broader gathering of
members.

WPC membership doesn't guarantee that the iPhone uses Qi. Note that the
Apple Watch uses a form of inductive charging too.

But if Apple commits to Qi, Powermat CEO Elad Dubzinski said his network of
charging stations could support the standard with a mix of hardware and
software tweaks. He said he was more concerned with managing the network of
services that would flow on top of wireless charging, say, at a Starbucks.

There's also the persistent chatter that Apple is exploring wireless
charging over several feet, which is where Energous could come into play.
Rizzone has hinted at a "key strategic partner," which many have taken to
mean Apple.

Energous has given this partner a one-year exclusivity deal for a specific
product category. Given Apple's eagerness to lock up new features for
itself, the deal might signal that future iPhones could embrace radio
frequency charging.

And that ultimately could be the answer, with companies incorporating
inductive or magnetic resonance for faster charging over shorter distances,
and radio frequency to help keep your battery topped off.

No matter how things shake out, it may take Apple to light the way.

"It's a chicken-and-egg problem that can only be solved by a fruit,"
Greengart said.

Hi Naima,
 
Below is a Dropbox download link for an audio tutorial on WinRar.  Personally I don't use WinRar, but hopefully other list members that do use it will be able to answer any questions you might have after you listen to the tutorial.

You should never just delete an application unless it is absolutely necessary because you may experience exactly these types of problems.  My suggestion would be to reinstall WinRAR and then correctly uninstall it from Programs and Features or from it's uninstall shortcut in the

"Start"

menu.  The default zip extract options should then be restored.

Hi I tried to delete Winrar because it wasn’t the version I needed and now I can’t open any zipped files. They all say Winrar zipped file. What do I do to change this back to normal zipped files.

 

I also no longer have my default extract option on my computer.

 

Please Help!!!!!!!!

I'm not sure what you mean when you say, "fully loaded with everything in it's place".  7-Zip is no more or less difficult to use than WinRAR.  In fact, the procedure for extracting an archive with either one is almost exactly the same.  If you are receiving an error that says a particular file is damaged, then that file is most likely corrupted and you will probably receive a similar error if you try to extract it using WinRAR.  In either case, there is no version of WinRAR which is specifically for Windows 7.  You can download 32 and 64 bit editions which will work on most versions of Windows from it's homepage here.

Thanks Carlos, I went to programs and found the uninstall feature and fixed it.

 

But now do you have a windows 7 64 bit version of Winrar that I can download and use. I need it to be fully loaded with everything in it’s place. The one I have isn’t set up and that’s where I made the major mistake to try to fix it.

 

I need the one where you can just download and set it up on your desktop. 7 zip is not the easiest program to use and is very confusing to me, I can extract from it but it tells me that the file has been damaged during email or the attachment stage, when I’m only trying to open, select and move them to a perminit folder. So you see my dilemma. I hate programs I can’t use by myself. And on the first try too.

You may not have been looking in the correct place, but if zip files were associated with WinRAR, the chances are that there was in fact an uninstall entry.  At least in Programs and Features.  The problem you are experiencing is being caused because zip files are currently associated with WinRAR which is now missing.  If you had uninstalled the program instead of simply deleting it, the uninstall procedure would have restored the default zip file association.  After you reinstall WinRAR, type

Programs and Features

into the

"Start"

menu search field.  When you find it, press Enter.  When Programs and Features opens, look for WinRAR in the list of installed applications and then press Enter to uninstall it.

The problem is it didn’t have a uninstall shortcut. But I’ll try again and let you know what happens.
