tech memories

Beth
 

I wrote an introduction in which I got the memories of Apple and Echo synthesis, but what about those of you who remember Napster? Who remembers any of the old MP3 players from the past?
Now, I was wondering who would be privy to a book review? This is a book review on a technological subject: the MP3 and music revolution. We all love music, I"m sure, around here. So this book is available on Bard, so if you have a patronage with the Talking Book service in the NLS program, you can access this audio book. I found myself fascinated by this book, and someone mentioned Philips. Yes, they're famous for shavers, funny Gerald mentioned that. Anyway Philips was indeed a conglomerate and they tried to harness what two German engineers invented, forcing them to use a certain filtering bay. But this book covers an entire history behind MP3 piracy, which I would have been a victim of thanks to the RIAA, if Project Hubcap had been going on longer than it did. I'm a confessed downloader of music, but I absolutely can't afford music files from iTunes, and have been yelled at. By none other than Dad, so unfortunately, piracy in its weirdest form seems to have been the only way I can stream music. Also, this book covers what Spotify and other subscriptions do, and we meet a lot of people who have shaped the music industry as we know it today. Thank God, we don't need CD's and yeah, it gets better. It was an older executive called Doug Morris who came up with ideas for bringing in more revenue for music artists. Anyhow, I would recommend this book to any piracy or any music enthusiasts out there.
Enjoy if you dare,
Beth

Re: cortana

Hmmm, when I first set Cortana up, you just had to press a couple buttons labeled next. You would have to look for something called Try Cortana. When set up, she's awesome.

I just saw try Cortana and pressed enter on it but for pete sake, I don’t remember what came up after that.  Lets see if I can duplicate it.

Ok, when I tab after clicking try Cortana, it says core output?

Right now, I depend on Google for what music that I listen to. iTunes is doing a good job of filling up my gmail box, which I can't get into. I think eventually, I'll just get another gmail address and let that one die a slow death, although I liked the name I gave for it.

I am encouraged to hear that about Cortana. I am working on one thing at a
time here with my new system. Right now, I am trying to master Outlook. I
have made some steps in that direction. Then I want to work on scanning and
ABBYY Fine Reader. Eventually, I do think I would get a lot of benefit from
Cortana.

Hahaha, o my! Looks as if though you've finally over 6 or so years of
thinking about it (creating a tech list that is), stepped up and created
one, eh? And that lame comment was to Carlos. Glad to see this list up and
running. It'll have its this that's and the others, but which walks of life
actually don't?

After receiving a private message from one of the new owners with the
BlindTech list about me using the name Smiling? I was like hmmmm, let's see
how long this goes because didn't we all just go through that nonsense not
all that long ago? Blah blah.

Nevertheless, good times and thanks Carolyn for your comments on the other
list regarding the very name it is that I've used for significant amounts of
time now. Happy to place a smile upon whomever's face, 100% free, yet
absolutely priceless!

Hi,
LOL, did they target everyone? The new admins, that is. LOL again, anyone Saw Mike's message yet? I would love to know an answer to a question, but more about that later. You may have been picked on your name before, but when I responded on the braille sense list, with the braillenote, they said that I was advertising, and that wasn't even the admin. I just laughed, and had a go at the guy off list. Just use whatever name you feel confident with. I would personally use my email address, but because of personal messages, I can't yet. Once I figure out how to get GMX working with the braille sense, though, that will be my name, whether people likes it or not.

Re: cortana

Oh no, ... Hmmm, I wish I could figure it out. What about more tabs? GOsh, I set this up after I upgraded so I have no real memory of the steps. Hmmm, let me see if I can get a comprehensive step by step thing on the web that would tell you where to go to set up the Cortana. Or is there any Cortana freaks out there who might be able to help?
Sorry ... I'm lost, my brain isn't functioning either, just got done watching Remember the Titans. Good film.

The book is titled, How Music Got Free by Steven Witt. I can't remember how to spell the author's last name, but the title keywords you should be able to search for anywhere, including the Bard site. Note to Bard users: the site is being maintained at the moment, so is shut down for the weekend. So when it comes back up, feel free to look How Music Got Free up.

I always post a question and then right when I send it, I figure out my own problem. However, with it being 4 in the morning now, I have no idea how I got there… I was just tabbing and down arrowing and poof there it was lol.

 

But, I couldn’t figure this out ever since getting windows 10 which is a few weeks now.

So, since my brain isn’t functioning right now, lets just forget this email ever came through…

Hello:

I signed up here, because I think carlos is the coolest thing since slice bread.

 

Anyways, apparently, I’m still having trouble accessing my c drive an any other external drives when plugging them into my laptop running windows 10.

My daughter says, when I tell her, for example, I’m trying to locate my passport, which is the name of my 1tb external hd, she clicks on the mouse and then jaws says this pc, so how can I get to this pc via the keyboard?This pc is in the file explorer which use to show my c drive, dvd drive etc, but it’s not showing any of that.

Forget Windows 95. I go all the way back to the days of COBOL and IBM mainframes. I used to be a COBOL programmer back in the old days when load modules were stored on punch cards. As a teenager, I remember being dazzled at the IBM pavillion at the 1964 New York World's Fair by demonstrations of the company's brand new System 360 mainframe, which along with its successor, the System 370, would go on to dominate the business computer market for many years. My very first job in the early 1970's involved programming "mini" computers made by the giant Dutch conglomerate, Philips Electronics, which was more well-known for its Norelco electric shavers. This so-called "mini" computer was the size of an upright piano and had a whopping storage capacity of 4K. An optional harddrive was available with a capacity of 32K. It was the size of a small refridgerator and broke down frequently, keeping the company's repair technicians constantly on call to appease irate customers. By the mid-1970's,Philips and its ilk had dropped out of the computer business and left it to the likes of IBMHoneywell, Burroughs and Sperry Univac. We sure have come a long way in 40 years.

Hello. My name is Beth. I live in Denver, Colorado. I have been an avid tech geek for as long as I can remember. Anyone remember Windows 95? When that thing came out, my dad bought the family our first computer, but JAWS was not so advanced. Laptops were bulky, and remember when the first one was invented? I cannot remember when the first laptop was invented, I think I was born at that time. But I do remember seeing in a blurb online that it had a tape deck, a floppy disc drive, a printer of all things. Imagine carrying that big old clunker around. lol But my tech geek history goes back, about to 95 for Windows and then some. But my real exposure to computers began with Apple and Echo. Remember?
Does anyone remember also some of the games from back then? Space invaders? Oh God, I can barely remember anything else.
Also, I had a whole history with JAWS and work related computing written in my blog. The URL of that blog is in the signature at the bottom. Also, all contacts are at the bottom. So yall are welcome to contact me with any questions.
My current tech consists of the Asus laptop I"m renting, Comcast accessible TV box, which has made me break the bank. Ugh. And I also use a BrailleNote when it is not flat. Ugh. I may have to wait a month to get that fixed unless I can pay with a Visa gift card. Also, I have a $209 cable/internet/phone bill. But Comcast can't get a triple promo going, so yeah I'm stuck paying big bucks for the stuff that people think is a luxury. Well, if yo looked at my building, you would be using tech to secure the door, so I have to in turn secure my apartment. What we do is you walk in the outer door, type in a code given to you by the resident and then the resident picks up his/her phone and then hits 9 and boom, you're in.
That's all the tech I use. I also have an Android phone, which qualifies as high tech as well.
Anyway, before I write the Great American Novel, I will close with a thank you Carlos for inviting me to this group. Yall can contact me on or off the group. Thanks.
Beth

Hello Smiling,
Thanks for subscribing. LOL what can I say? I'm a procrastinator. Hopefully we can make this a positive experience and keep it from becoming another disposable list.

Hahaha, o my! Looks as if though you've finally over 6 or so years of
thinking about it (creating a tech list that is), stepped up and created
one, eh? And that lame comment was to Carlos. Glad to see this list up and
running. It'll have its this that's and the others, but which walks of life
actually don't?

After receiving a private message from one of the new owners with the
BlindTech list about me using the name Smiling? I was like hmmmm, let's see
how long this goes because didn't we all just go through that nonsense not
all that long ago? Blah blah.

Nevertheless, good times and thanks Carolyn for your comments on the other
list regarding the very name it is that I've used for significant amounts of
time now. Happy to place a smile upon whomever's face, 100% free, yet
absolutely priceless!

I am encouraged to hear that about Cortana. I am working on one thing at a
time here with my new system. Right now, I am trying to master Outlook. I
have made some steps in that direction. Then I want to work on scanning and
ABBYY Fine Reader. Eventually, I do think I would get a lot of benefit from
Cortana.

At least here, you can feel free to use what ever name you like. I'm not going to nitpick over pointless details.

Hi,
LOL, did they target everyone? The new admins, that is. LOL again, anyone Saw Mike's message yet? I would love to know an answer to a question, but more about that later. You may have been picked on your name before, but when I responded on the braille sense list, with the braillenote, they said that I was advertising, and that wasn't even the admin. I just laughed, and had a go at the guy off list. Just use whatever name you feel confident with. I would personally use my email address, but because of personal messages, I can't yet. Once I figure out how to get GMX working with the braille sense, though, that will be my name, whether people likes it or not.

Tech roots

Juanita Martin <jordmartin@...>
 

My tech roots go back to the trusty slate and stylus. I still use it to label mail that I want to keep. It's definitely portable and doesn't run on batteries.

Our first PC was one from Radio Shack back in the 80's. I think it was called TRS 80 or "trash 80!"
Now, I do 99.9 per cent of my computing with my iPhone 6. If I can find a scan stand that will suit my needs, my Mac and Toshiba may become paper weights.

Well, here's what I don't get. Sent from a brailleNote. That's not advertisement. If it is, this means, on the JAWS list, NVDA should never be mentioned. On the NVDA, jaws should never be mentioned. Its impossible. So how the earth is a single signature advertisement? And they were not even admins. Its just pointless. Same with names. Some people are worried of people knowing their real name. So what? Should they just unsubscribe? No. But rather, we can do something like: "Hello, Smiling?," Problem solved.
