Question regarding an android phone

Veronica Kirk
 

Hello to all,

 

Since an iPhone has Siri and Amazon Echo has Alexa, what does an Android phone have comparable to these?

16 feet and you can effectively do longer runs by using the memory.

Hi Dave,
I did receive it.  It works very well and the voice is clear.  Although the 9-volt battery was a big pain in the *** to insert.  The battery is also not included by default if you purchase it from Independent Living Aids.

Oh yeah, now I remember all this. I had to scratch my brain, since I haven't used skype in years, and have never used GW connect. But now, I remember about all the emails going back-and-forth about it. Pam.

An important correction: GW Micro DID NOT necessarily stop supporting GW
Connect; Skype changed its API and NO LONGER permit third-party interface.
So, what's GW Micro supposed to do if its client can no longer interface
with Skype?

Facebook has done something similar; third party apps NO LONGER interface

Re: networking a drive using a router

It is the Buffalo WZR-600DHP, but I wouldn't bother. It is a slightly older model. I have been considering purchasing a newer model with a USB 3 port. Although I haven't decided on a specific brand or model yet.

I have this netgear that is around 4 or 5 years old and I have the firmware up to date although it is at least 3 years old itself. Never the less to my point, it has a USB port with which it is possible to network an external drive or even a printer. That latter I have not tried, but the former several times. It works well for a few days then it becomes unstable so I finally trashed the idea. Does anybody out there have any further experience with these contraptions. I have followed the setup steps to the letter each and every time but no joy. I did check on Amazon and a lot of the reviews seemed to indicate this brand of router does seem to have issues in this area.

So far as it being a router for my home network it works perfectly fine, both wired and wireless. It is just that this networking a drive is a sticking point and it gives me no reason.
