Is it possible to determine if a website being viewed or used to send credit card info to is an https (secure) website?

Re: USB 2 or 3?

Thanks. The black versus blue thing I knew about, but had forgotten how to differentiate tactually. It took a little bit of doing, especially where the connectors are in pairs and close together, but I think I got it straight which are 2's and which are 3's on this particular machine.

Here's how  you can feel the difference using your finger between a USB 2.0 port, & a USB 3.0 port.  Stick the end of your finger into the USB port.  The
2.0 port will feel pretty open with the contact in deeper, but the 3.0 port will feel like there are contacts right up to the edge of the opening.
Black USB ports are 2.0 and blue USB  ports are 3.0.

If I look in Windows Device Manager, how can I differentiate between USB
2 and 3 ports? Also, is there any way to tell, I mean really tell
especially manually, which port is a USB 2 or 3 port? At one time I
thought there was, and that I could actually tell the difference; these
days, I'm nnot so sure. Does that mean my sense of touch isn't what it
used to be? Not surprising, as not much else about me is either (LOLLOL).

Hi,

You most assuredly can. Just download the upgrade assistant, and choose upgrade this pc. Even though Microsoft says it says it expired, it still works.

Re: Nest Thermostat

Chris G <chris@...>
 

The Ecobee app for Ecobee thermostats is also quite accessible.

 

The Ecobee 4 hardware does have an Amazon Alexa built in.

 

I received one of these for Christmas and it has remote censors that are quite nice. For example If I have the thermostat set to 68 and my office temp is 70 and the location where the thermostat is is 66, it won’t run the furnace to bring the thermostat location up to 68 as where I currently am is the Office and it knows it.

 

I did need sighted assistance to get it connected and set up for the first time.

Hi Rex. The Nest app is fairly accessible with Voice Over for most tasks. The only thing I haven’t done is change schedules but I use the Nest learning mode here so that isn’t a problem for me at all. You  can also use Alexa or Google to control the thermostat with your voice.

Is the Nest Thermostat compatible with the iPhone and voice over?  Just wondering if one change from heat to cool and change the temp with the iPhone using latest operating system.

 

No one is totally worthless; they can always be used as a bad example.

Simply tab around and there's a show more system restore points available that if you check will accomplish what it is that you are after accomplishing.

Re: determining if website is https on firefox

 

Pressing F6 will show you the website address and it should answer your question :)
Other than that, I'm not aware of any way to see such an information.
