Re: the roomer about the trecker

Laz
 

Thanks David. It sounds like perhaps the dealer may be listening to
rumors and the correct thing for them to do is to contact Humanware
instead of passing on possibilities based solely on rumors.

Stay well,

Laz

Re: very disapointing knews

The answer to that one is complicated. At times some believe more in
the person than they should. Some people are just gullible and despite
the evidence staring them in the face, they trust the source of the
rumor. Some believe that if they answered the question of who said it
they are betraying that person.

As you can see, it can get complicated.

I know of a dealer who has spread many rumors the last one that I know
of being about 2 months ago, yet he has customers that defend and
protect him. I'm not going to mention names because I've already
received legal threats from that direction, but I will respond to
obvious falsehoods with the truth. Yet despite the truth being
presented, the fans refuse to accept the facts. (shrugs)

Re: very disapointing knews

Gene
 

We don't know how many people are spreading the rumor.  The best thing to do might be for the person who is the customer of the dealer to tell the dealer what was stated on the list earlier in the day.  Someone contacted the manufacturer of the Victor Stream and was told that it is not being discontinued.


I think that rather than single out one person, such as one vendor, it is far more valuable to consider the question of how the rumor is worded.  Do those who hear it have it introduced with the words I heard, or something similar?  Almost literally every time I see a statement on any of the blindness lists I'm on that begins with "I heard" or some similar  variant, the statement is either wrong or so misleading that it might as well be.


We haven't, to my recollection, seen any statement of the rumor attributing it to a reliable source such as the manufacturer.


Also, I'm not saying that a statement attributing something to a reliable source is necessarily correct.  Mhy  point is to be very suspicious of I heard or I was told, or other statements of that kind.

Re: Smart Speaker advice, please

Hi Mike,

 

, this boes revolve is  Wider  at the bottom and tapers  in at the top.

Think of the shape like a large, probably 16 + oz paper coffee cup   upside down.

The outside is a perforated metal with no seem.  The top feels like silicone.  It sits on a base that has the charging cable plugin.

It has six buttons on  top;

 

---12 o clock is the off on button,

---6 o clock is the mute button.

---10 o clock is the pairing button

---2   o clock is the imput selectio  I use audio cable

---8 and 4 o clock are volume up down.

 

No, it does not   have bass trebble up down or balance selection;  you would have to do that from the music/siybd siyrce,

I have a boes revolve.
It is the size of a large water glass, slightly tapered from the bottom to
top.
It definitely has bass.
I can make the neighbours complain without trying.
It can use Bluetooth and audio cable.
I think it costs about 250 u s dolla.

Stream is one of Humanware's largest cash cows. That's all I'm going
to say about this except to repeat Qui Bono?

Re: streamin and trekin

Laz
 

Hi Monte,

I don't have exact numbers either but I can say that for various
reasons they do sell more Streams than Treks.

Stay safe,

Laz

At a wild guess, they probably sell ten times as many streams.

So the trek would llikely be discontinued before the stream.

And I am totally addicted to mine.

I use it more than my iphone and more than my p c.

I know, after a few days of instruction by a very patient person, I
could learn how to read books on my phone, but I hope I die before this
happens; it's alright, I am over seventy.

And I also know there a lots of people who prefer to use a victor stream
or
other talking book device

Instead of their smart phone.





Here's to many more sales for the Lazman!

I'm sorry, but I didn't notice the message where Monte described the speaker before I sent my query.  Can treble and bass be adjusted manually on the Revolve?

Is this device fatter at the bottom or top?  I know my question doesn't sound logical, but there's a lot of things that are perceived one way and when you buy them they're the opposite.

I have a boes revolve.
It is the size of a large water glass, slightly tapered from the bottom to
top.
It definitely has bass.
I can make the neighbours complain without trying.
It can use Bluetooth and audio cable.
I think it costs about 250 u s dolla.

Re: program vs app

Mike B.
 


Hi Howard,
 
I know this isn't correct, but I think of apps as, portable versions of programs, that don't require installation and programs as full programs that require installation.  Apps won't be found in the, Programs & Features, of the control panel, only installed programs will be found there.  This is only my way of keeping the 2 separated in my head.

Application vs. Program (What’s the Difference?)
 
Last Updated on September 14, 2020 by
RapidAPI Staff
 

Table of Contents

Application vs. Program
 
In the ever-evolving world of technology, we often have to familiarize ourselves with various terms that come up every single day. And while most of the
words come with sharp differences, at times, we come across terms that are considered to mean the same thing even though they are totally different.
 
A perfect example is the term program and application. Some years back, the word program was used when referring to desktop operating systems such as windows.
Additionally, apps were associated with mobile OS, such as
iOS and Android.
 
However, when desktop applications were developed, the difference between the two become a little blurry. 
 
Consequently, a major concern is that most users don’t understand that there are subtle differences between programs and applications. If you are one such
user, this article expounds in detail the similarities and the differences between the two. 
 
Meaning of Each Term
What is an Application?
 
An application (app) is a program or a collection of programs that have been designed for the end-users. They help you to perform a set of coordinated
tasks, functions, or activities. From the definition, we deduce that all apps are programs, but not all programs are necessarily apps. Another crucial
thing to note about applications is that they can’t run on their own, and they depend on system software to operate. 
 
What is a Program?
 
Programs are a collection or sequence of executable instructions that aid in the automatic performance of targeted tasks on a computer. It refers to a
set of coded instructions that a computer can recognize to solve a problem or yield the desired result.
 
Similarities Between Applications and Programs
 
The main similarity between applications and programs is the fact that they are both used to perform various functions or tasks on a computer. 
 
Additionally, since an application is a collection of computer programs that help end-users to solve a problem, it means that these programs must coordinate
and interact for this to happen. We are simply saying that all apps need programs to perform end-users’ commands. For example, when you want to watch a
movie via VLC, the player will require
audio and video drivers to operate. 
 
Differences Between an Application and a Program
1. Installation
 
A program requires an installer that is packaged with necessary files for it to be installed on a computer. Conversely, it may also seek to download more
data from the web before it installs. On the other hand, an app is a single file that a user downloads from the internet and installs it on their device.
And unlike programs, you don’t need a separate uninstaller to uninstall apps from your computer. 
 
2. Target User
 
As mentioned earlier, an app is developed with the end-user in mind. As such, it is structured to help users complete a given function, task, or activity.
A program, on the other hand, is created to help a computer execute a specific purpose, and it can run on the background without the end-users intervention. 
 
3. User Interface
 
Since an app is designed to be utilized by real individuals, it boasts a user interface (UI). However, programs don’t necessarily need to have a UI for
them to be considered complete, For instance, viruses and malware that are used by hackers to infect your computer are programs, but they don’t have a
UI.
 
4. Development
 
Since an application can feature several programs, it is usually developed through a structured and documented process that may involve several individuals.
On the other hand, a program can be created by a single individual. However, it is vitally essential to understand that today’s apps can be developed by
one person
utilizing APIs,
libraries,
and
frameworks.
 But since these essentials are also designed by someone else, it still means that several people will still be involved in the development process. 
 
5. Operation
 
While an app requires various programs to exist and operate, programs don’t need an app to execute their roles. For example, while MS Word (an application)
requires multiple drivers such as Prime number sieve and square root finder (programs) to function, the drivers don’t need MS Word to execute their roles.
 
Final Verdict
 
The differences between applications and programs have been blurred for a very long time, and most people have been using them interchangeably. However,
from what we have seen in this article, although apps and programs intersect at some point, they are not synonymous. They are a means to an end, so they
need to be treated differently. We live in a dynamic environment where everything is influenced by technology.  Nevertheless, we must learn to differentiate
terms, whether they have been in existence for decades (programs) or have emerged due to the changes in technology (applications).

Programs or APPs:  I thought "APP" is just short for "application program".  I thought they are the same thing; Please, what is the difference?

Thanks

If you uninstall from the apps folder, and it's a program and not an app, it'll take you to Programs and Features and you remove, uninstall or delete it from the computer.  That's why I asked him if he had a copy of the program.  But, if it's only an app it'll uninstall it from the apps folder.  If it's a shortcut you don't get an uninstall option. 
 
Depending on what type of file it is dictates on what options you'll get when you open the context menu to see your choices for the item.

As far as I know, removing a program from the apps folder has nothing to do with whether it runs at startup.  I don’t know about Windows 10 apps and others would have to comment on those but as far as I know, the shell:apps folder contains shortcuts to open all programs and has nothing to do with whether they run automatically at bootup. 
 
I don’t think you should remove items from the apps folder without further discussion.

Yo Bro,
 
Try going to All Programs in the Start Menu, and in there find the Start-up folder and if this program is in there you can either delete it, copy  or cut it out and this'll stop it from starting at start-up.
 
If you have a copy of the program you can open the Run dialogue by pressing, Windows Key + R, and type the following
 
shell:appsfolder
 
and press enter.  Find the program in here and remove it.

Hi. Do the following. Go to your start menu and type startup apps.
Press enter to open start up apps settings. Tab through and turn off the
apps you don't want to run at startup.

Hope this helps.

Cheers.

Windows 10 latest and jfw 2020.
I installed discord many moons back, how do I have it stop from starting up?
I looked under the start up tab and services tab in msconfig, but discord
was no where to be found.
Then I looked in the discord application itself, and couldn't find anything,
as I am still learning my way around that application.
