Ok, this so-called new toy from HIMS will come with 6GB RAM, 128GB storage
space. It will run Android10, no information was shared regarding a path to
an upgrade of the OS.

The presenters are directing everyone to visit the HIMS-INC website to read
more about the specs of the new toy. Oh, one more thing: No TOUCHSCREEN on
this thing, they contend that it wasn't popular. They also think that they
could possibly reintroduce the touchscreen some time later.

Here's the web address to go to:

www.hims-inc.com/bs6

Shipment of the bad girl is expected to begin in early June. They say it is
SHOCKINGLY FAST. It has FOUR USB PORTS: 2 USB-A, 1 USBC, and the fourth
one is specifically for computer-related stuff.

Cost Price: $5,795.00. Polaris owners can upgrade for $1,500.00! Will
yell again when I find out anything else interesting worth reporting.

Sincerely,
Olusegun
Denver, Colorado

Hi,
 
Can someone please list the Zoom keystrokes for using a land line phone, IPhone and computer? I only need the basic few, signing in and out, muting, etc.
 
Thank you.

I looked under user/fanus Buys/appData/local/outlook and there is a .pst

How accessible are these functions on modern cars using an iPhone or

Does anyone know where I can learn more about these functions?

Hi all,


Last week I asked about purchasing Microsoft word and from the comments I was convinced that it's a better buy to go ahead and get Microsoft Office even if I only use Word. I was looking online over the weekend and mostly what I found was either subscriptions for Office, or the outright purchases I found were well over $100 and I even saw a couple for over $200. What do I need to look for to find Microsoft Office that I only have to pay for once and is a single license copy?


Thanks.

Yes, and it does seem to record it on the DVR, as long as you choose the recording from there instead of the on-demand stuff they also offer.

Good day folks.  My wife and I would like to divorce Xfinity cable.  My in-laws who are sighted have Youtube TV, and it seems to have every channel that we like.  Is there an accessible configuration that I could try that would allow us to read the channel names as well as the guide on Youtube TV?  Would an Amazon Fire TV box with the Youtube TV app installed speak the channel names as well as the guide which tells us what is on?  Do you folks know of a smart TV with voice guidance that would read everything that the Youtube TV app shows on the screen?  We really want Youtube TV, and we need voice guidance to help us navigate and figure out what is showing.  Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

I use it on my Fire Stick as well, works really good. As for the Roku built into the TV, it is dead silent when you launch it, but you can cast to it from iOS, so I wouldn’t go for Roku for using this service.

It would be an interesting comparison. You would have to do many each way perhaps a large number for comparison. But if you received automatic clearance just by being signed into a Google account, even if you were limited to a certain number a day or hour or in some way, bots could just keep switching accounts. It makes no logical sense to provide this exemption.

I meant to say space.

It is illogical that the check box works one way if you are signed into a Google account and another if you aren't. If people say that they never, even after using the check box a lot of times, have to answer an audio captcha, I'll consider that maybe the claim is correct. If people report that even rarely, they have to use an audio captcha, that will prove it to be wrong.

I have used Chrome and I use Chrome based browsers like Brave and
Edge. I have found instances where Chrome isn't automatically
approved just because I press enter on the check box. And think of how illogical your claim is.
Let's say a spammer wanted to get around captchas. All the spammer
would have to do is be signed into Google and he could have a bot
activate the check box on any site with this kind of captcha. the
captcha is to evaluate whether the user is a human, not whether the
user is signed into a Google account.

Gene, because you, by your own admission, do not use Google Chrome,
your analysis is not accurate. Using Chrome, whenever I have
encountered an "I am not a robot" check box and checked it, I have
always been able to bypass visual captchas and audio challenges. But
the same may not be true of other Chromium based browsers like Brave
and Edge, because they are rivals to Chrome and so have not received
authorization from Google to bypass captchas with its proprietary
recaptcha system. I suspect that Chrome, unlike other browsers, may
recognize that the user is using a screen reader and so bypasses the
captcha step to make the process accessible to the blind and hearing impaired.

presented to the sighted user and a blind user can get an audio captcha.

At times those working from the keyboard are approved without a
captcha. At times they aren't. I don't know if I believe the captcha
can tell to an extent if someone is using a keyboard and infer whether
the user is a human but it isn't nearly as accurate.

If only a checkbox were used without the analysis I described, then a
machine would be able to check the checkbox and the captcha would be
worthless.

You don't bypass the captcha. You may be approved or you may have to
solve an audio captcha. Either may happen after you check the check
box. You should be able to use the check box with other browsers as
well. I don't think it works with Internet Explorer.
