When I search on the exact way you referenced the phone, I get a bunch of references to some sort of automotive grill work.


Re: I need help setting up windows mail.

Hi Jim,

I’m assuming you are referring to the Windows Mail App when you say Windows Mail, right?  Jim because you will be getting a new PC from an agency, you need to ask them if there is going to be an Outlook program on the new PC.  If so, you need to ask them which Outlook version, and if they are going to set it up for you, and if so, you need to ask them for the password they will be using, unless they are going to be using your current password.  If they are not going to put an Outlook account on the PC, you can then think about the Windows Mail Ap.  It isn’t difficult to set up Windows Mail App, but right now you might not want to upset the apple cart!  LOL!  The agency might already have an Outlook account set up for you especially if they are going to set up the PC for you.  When I set up my new Windows 10 PC, and entered my Wi-Fi information, that took me directly to the MS web site, and I got a message asking me to log in to my account with my current email address as well as my password with my Outlook account.  So, after I entered that information, the Windows Mail App was automatically created.  So, you can do the samething, but I don’t know if you are setting up the new PC, is the agency setting it up for you, is there going to be a new version of Outlook.  These are questions you need to ask the agency so you can now prepare for the new PC.  I’m assuming you only have a couple of months to go before you get the new PC, right?

Combination A M FM clock radio with phone

Did anyone else buy this phone:
XACT model CX1903

It's a corded phone with built-in clock radio, has talking caller ID.  I'd sure like to find a manual for this device.  Anybody have one?  Thanks.

Re: deleting short cut off the desktop

John Holcomb II
 

Because you deleted the favorite but you didn’t delete the actual shortcut.

If you hit delete on the thing that it can’t find it should let you delete it.

Try that and let us know.

Re: Braille Displays

Joe Orozco
 

Cristóbal,

What factors are you considering when deciding between the Orbit 40
and the Mantis 40? I mean, other than one is Perkins keyboard and the
other QWERTY? I'm sitting on a Braille Sense U2 at the moment. It is a
fully functional notetaker but is no longer being supported by HIMS.
I'm actually satisfied with what it does. I'm drawn to the Mantis,
because although I don't mind typing in Braille, the Braille
translation on iOS, in my personal opinion, leaves something to be
desired. The Mantis would eliminate that issue and provide me Braille.
The Orbit, on the other hand, is $1,100 cheaper, and based on my
observation of the 20-cell model, has excellent Braille quality. I'm
not the biggest fan of the space bar located below the Braille
display, which, I know, is probably shallow of me and likely something
I could get used to. Anyway, thanks in advance for your response.

Some people.
Back in 2011, I was debating whether to get an Apex that was almost $6000
but instead opted for a 40 cell Brailliant BI and iPad and iPhone. That
Brailliant lasted me over ten years and hung around outlasting something
like 5 iPhone models and three iPads. Granted, the iOS and Braille
experience wasn't always the best, but combining the display with various
iOS devices over the years at least in my mind, gave me way more
productivity and more bang for my buck than a display where the OS
traditionally isn't supported for maybe more than three or four years.
Even then, the Apex would've lasted way longer than some of these newer
Smart note taker/display hybrids.
I recently scored a Freedom Scientific F80 Braille display on eBay for $305.
I first wrote the seller asking if everything worked, and they replied that
yes, all cells, connectors and buttons were functional. I had my sighted
wife look at the pictures and she was able to read me the serial number off
of the display. I called Vispero and asked about its history and if it had
ever been serviced and I was informed that it was serviced and cleaned back
in 2016. The 80 cell display was from back in 2006. This thing is huge. I'm
talking a beast of a display, but so far, so good. I've got it set up at my
desktop workstation and now I've got a fully functional 80 cell display that
back in the day went for almost $8000. Side note, looks like this seller's
got some sort of hookup or something. At the time that I purchased it, they
had two devices up for sale. Since then, I believe they've posted four more
80 cell displays. Again for roughly $300. Keep in mind, you're talking about
devices that are really long in the tooth, so buyer beware and all that.
Their postings are easy enough to find. You just have to search for Braille
display or something along those lines. There aren't too many on at any
given time.
I still have the Brailliant BI 40, but it's a refurbished model Humanware
provided me as a replacement for my old display that I sent in late last
year to be fixed, but got lost by UPS. Fine by me. It cost me nothing and
now my Brailliant was at least serviced and inspected by Humanware.
I'm thinking of selling my Brailliant and putting that money towards either
a Mantis 40 cell display or the Orbit Reader 40. I'm more inclined to opt
for a device that's maybe dumber as far as on board connectivity, but that I
know I can use for many years to come and not have to worry about it slowing
down or not being able to keep up with the demands that innovation sometimes
brings and just act as a display with maybe some built in file management
features. I mean, if I want Internet connectivity and all those bells and
whistles, that's what a smart phone or tablet and Bluetooth connections are
for.
Just my two cents.

The great thing about Humanware products is the ability to pay in
installments. I don’t think APH offers this flexibility. If I can throw one
more product into the mix, it would be the new Braille Sense
6 from HIMS. It’s far and away the most expensive of the displays mentioned
here at $5,795, but HIMS now also offers payment plans.

Re: Braille Displays

Victor
 

The first refreshable braille display I ever used was the 40 cell versabraille. Someone told me about it at summercamp in the summer of 1982 and I used it for a year or two when I started high school. It was located in the resource room for the visually impaired that we had there. I enjoyed that braille display a lot.

I agree with everything you have written:

Brian block you on Twitter because you disagreed with him! Oh brother! That’s the trouble with people on social media! They can’t handle an honest difference of opinion and they act like spoiled little brats! Very mature of him.

This thing is huge. I'm talking a beast of a display, but so far, so good. I've got it set up at my desktop workstation and now I've got a fully functional 80 cell display that back in the day went for almost $8000. Side note, looks like this seller's got some sort of hookup or something. At the time that I purchased it, they had two devices up for sale. Since then, I believe they've posted four more 80 cell displays. Again for roughly $300. Keep in mind, you're talking about devices that are really long in the tooth, so buyer beware and all that. Their postings are easy enough to find. You just have to search for Braille display or something along those lines. There aren't too many on at any given time.
I still have the Brailliant BI 40, but it's a refurbished model Humanware provided me as a replacement for my old display that I sent in late last year to be fixed, but got lost by UPS. Fine by me. It cost me nothing and now my Brailliant was at least serviced and inspected by Humanware.
I'm thinking of selling my Brailliant and putting that money towards either a Mantis 40 cell display or the Orbit Reader 40. I'm more inclined to opt for a device that's maybe dumber as far as on board connectivity, but that I know I can use for many years to come and not have to worry about it slowing down or not being able to keep up with the demands that innovation sometimes brings and just act as a display with maybe some built in file management features. I mean, if I want Internet connectivity and all those bells and whistles, that's what a smart phone or tablet and Bluetooth connections are for.
Just my two cents.

The great thing about Humanware products is the ability to pay in installments. I don’t think APH offers this flexibility. If I can throw one more product into the mix, it would be the new Braille Sense

Re: 533 Million Facebook Users Stolen by Hackers

Victor
 

Hi Janet:

You’re welcome. Most people misuse social media. They get addicted to it and they use it as an opportunity to get on a soapbox. However, it can be valuable for maintaining relationships and getting the word out about worthy causes. There's a useful platform called Next Door which has a mobile app. Its purpose is to let neighbors communicate with each other and post announcements about things happening in your neighborhood. It's kind of like a neighborhood watch. It was valuable to me when my apartment was robbed last year. Some of the people on this platform found my stolen items and they returned them to me. That is a good use for social media. I urge everyone to use Next Door to stay informed about your neighborhood and help your neighbors.

As for the other social media apps, MeWe has an app in the iOS app store and probably Google Play too. It's like Facebook but less restrictive on free speech. Plus, many claim that its Algorithms for arranging posts are better.

Gab Social and Parlor don't have apps because they won't abide by the restrictions of the app stors. However, Gab Social can be added to the home screen of your mobile device as if it were an actual app. That's easy to do and Gab tells you how to do that. It's pretty accessible and there are plans to improve the website and platform. They plan to add a marketplace where users can buy and sell. I don't know much about Parlor. I've tried to create an account, but it won't accept my information.

KloutHub is another platform that has apps. It's a platform for discussing news and politics. It also seems to be a video sharing platform.

Telegram is a message platform, but it is also a social media platform with accessible apps. Bright Guide is one such app app and Telegram itself is fairly accessible.

I predict that we will begin to see many niche oriented social media platforms. Platforms for conservatives, platforms for liberals, platforms for women, platforms for minorities and other social media platforms that will cater to specific types of people in society. It’s about choice, diversity and free-speech no matter what your views happen to be. There are also apps and social media platforms that our faith based. There are even social media platforms exclusively for practicing Catholics now. See what I mean? We will see more of these platforms catering to specific segments of society. I’ve noticed that everyone uses Facebook, but everyone hates Facebook. That’s pretty interesting. It’s like eating fast food. Most of us don’t like fast food, but we are willing to eat it.

Anyway, I hope all of this information helps you if you are interested in accessing social media. Social media can be helpful if used properly.

Hello Janet:

Thank you for sharing this article. It was very interesting. I am still on Facebook and Twitter, but I am gradually expanding my social media experience to other social media platforms. I am doing this because Facebook and Twitter are restricting free-speech and I am not necessarily confident in their ability to protect our online privacy anymore. The other social media platforms I am now on include www.gab.com and www.mewe.com. Both are pretty accessible. I encourage everyone to check them out.

Blessings,

Hello All,
I just came across this article, and thought some might be interested in reding, so I copied and pasted below.


533 Million Facebook Users Stolen by Hackers Personal Data of 533
Million Facebook Users Stolen by Hackers JOSH HENDRICKSON @canterrain
APR 5, 2021, 11:17 AM EDT | 1 min read A Facebook privacy page with a
magnifying glass over the word privacy.
If you're on Facebook (and who isn't?), you may want to consider
locking down all your accounts. A security researcher discovered the
personal data of
533 million Facebook users
leaked online in a hacker forum. The data includes phone numbers, names, birthdates, emails, and more.
The data in question first leaked back in January, but at the time,
hackers had to pay for it through a Telegram bot. That limited the
spread somewhat between the cost and the method to retrieve it. But
over the weekend, security researcher Alon Gal discovered the data posted on a hacker forum for free.
All 533,000,000 Facebook records were just leaked for free.
This means that if you have a Facebook account, it is extremely likely the phone number used for the account was leaked.
I have yet to see Facebook acknowledging this absolute negligence of your data.

Alon Gal (Under the Breach)
In early 2020 a vulnerability that enabled seeing the phone number
linked to every Facebook account was exploited, creating a database containing the information 533m users across all countries.
It was severely under-reported and today the database became much more
worrisome 1/2
6:52 AM · Apr 3, 2021
The breach contains information on users across 106 countries,
including 32 million US users and 11 million UK users. Troy Hunt, of
haveibeenpwned, already has a copy of the data, and in his analysis,
few records (about 0.5%) contain email addresses. But far more contain
phone numbers, birthdates, and other personally identifying
information. Everything you might need to pull off a sim swapping attack or take over an account.
Troy Hunt
Verified account
@troyhunt
Apr 3, 2021
Another general observation on this incident: I'm seeing *extensive* sharing of the data, both the entire corpus of countries and individual country files.
Not just in hacking circles, but very broadly on social media too. This data is everywhere already.
Email parsing now done, found 2,529,621 unique addresses across the 108 files. Call it about 0.5% of all records having an email address.
8:29 PM · Apr 3, 2021
For his part, Hunt is considering adding a new field to
haveibeenpwned.com for phone numbers. Currently, you can only check
your data against email addresses for breaches, but in this case,
that's not very useful. But adding a phone number field comes with risks, so Hunt is still deciding as of this publication.
In a statement to
Bleeping Computer,
Facebook stated that hackers stole the data using a vulnerability the
company patched in late 2019. That means the data stolen is nearly two
years old, and if you've changed your email address or phone numbers since then, what the hackers have is out of date. But other data doesn't change of course, (like birthdates), and people usually keep phone numbers and emails for many years, so the age of the data is of little comfort.
For its part, Facebook doesn't seem to be notifying affected users,
which would be a helpful move. If you want to determine if you're part
of the leak, you can start with haveibeenpwned.
For now, that's an email-only option, but hopefully, Hunt does add a phone number field in the future.

You can't create message rules. You can with Thunderbird.
I don't know how you will like it compared with Outlook. On
my computer, it is slower in opening mail than Windows Live
Mail is. I continue to use Windows Live Mail. But with
Windows Live Mail, you have to create message rules using
the provider's web site such as GMail. You can't do so
directly in the e-mail program. You can with Thunderbird.

If you find Thunderbird slower than you want and want to try
Windows Live Mail, people can tell you how to set up message
rules. I never have using GMail or another provider.

Actually, I need to correct an important point:
You can create message rules in Windows Live Mail itself.
To do so, you need to be using a pop3 account, not an IMAP
account. If you use a POP3 account now or if you don't but
you don't care about synchronizing messages on more than one
device, you can use a POP3 account with no problems or
inconveniences.

If you do like Thunderbird, using Thunderbird portable will
mean that you will never have to install or set it up after
the first time. Keep a backup copy of the portable program,
made after you have set everything up and if you ever have
problems such as corruption, with the copy you are using,
delete the folder and copy the backup folder where the copy
you usually use is. You can also copy the portable version
to any other computer you want to use it on.

Jim, it is a pain in the anatomy to set up a signature in
Outlook.

Press Alt+F+T+M. Tab to get to signatures. They want you to
put in a nick name and if you want one name for respond, one
name for new, bla, bla, bla. I just gave up on the thing. I
did have mine in at one time, but having to unload and
reload Outlook lost it in the shuffle and never bothered to
try to find it.

HI Jim,

Yes, the Windows Mail App is what comes with Windows 10. I
myself am getting used to it. Windows Mail App is quite
basic, and what I mean by that is you can send messages, you
can reply, you can forward, you can receive messages. There
is what Windows calls the People App, in which that is
really the contact list. I like this because it is just a
basic email program, as that is all I want. I have on my
iPhone Outlook for iOS, and the Windows Mail App is very
similar to that, in which I like.

Jim,

I'm sorry to say, but MS has stopped supporting Outlook as
of Oct 2020. You can still use it, but just don't expect it
to work efficiently though. You will need to upgrade this
as well. Not much good news about MS and Outlook or
Windows! LOL!
