Re: to the ouspoken Denver Dude

Hey Colonel Monte, don't moan; just grab two, I'll come by with Santa
several weeks early to sneak down the chimney to grab the second one and
thus immerse myself in that great, wild garden where only apples grow!

I think the article I posted was a tad too generous in stating that Android
is in 70% of the world. Android has greater penetration worldwide than iOS
does--closer to 80%-85%! But, of course, the iPhone is produced in China and
imported to our countries for resale. If China's 1.3 billion people each
have one, there won't be enough iPhones left to export.

I'm tickled grey to see Apple trying to invade a market where it won't make
real deep penetration. In most countries of the world, $399.99 is hard to
amass; an Android can still be had for, say, $50-$200! It's going to be an
uphill climb for Apple for sure and I hope it doesn't SHOOT ITSELF in both
feet. Anyhow, it's stock was $292 today; perhaps the release of the sE2020
bumped it up 'cause I had seen it dive down to almost $165 recently.

Anyway, when I come grab my sE2020, we'll have a wild party to which no
virus shall be invited!!

Re: Keurig single cup coffee maker

I've never seen paper filters for the Kurrig: just the regular k cups, or the kcup filter that's made of plastic or metal that is, I guess, what you refer to as a reusable coffee pod. Using regular drip grind coffee, I get grounds in the bottom of my cup with the reusable one. Pam.

Hey Fred,
My wife Kay and I have a cure egg coffee maker and we also use those reusable podhs. What she says that that she uses is not the espresso grind but the drip coffee grind. We even ground our own coffee and put in there and it works just fine. don’t put any more than two heaping tablespoons of coffee in that cup. A couple of things can affect how the coffee turns out. Number one the wrong grind and number to the amount of coffee you put in there. If you get it to fall it won’t brew right because the water can’t run through it the way it should. If you have anymore questions don’t be afraid to ask. Thanks

You can fill your ears with music and your mouth with food, but, music won’t make you fat.

Re: What to do when your computer goes silent

Evan Reese
 

My life partner has had this experience of her machine being mysteriously muted a few times. What I have found when this has happened is that the volume was set to zero.
So, at least in the instances that I have experienced, is that  going to the volume and increasing it is equivalent to unmuting it.

Maybe, but that isn’t usually the problem.  Also, often if sound is muted, you need to unmute it, not increase the volume.  It is for reasons like this that everyone who doesn’t have a Braille display should have either USB headphones or a USB soundcard.  If there is a problem with volume settings or muted sound, you don’t have to guess.  If you plug in the USB device, it then becomes the default sound card and usually, your screen-reader will speak through it, though it may be necessary to unload and run it again to cause this to happen.
 
Then, you can look at your sound settings and see if the soundcard you usually use is muted or the volume is at 0 or very low.

Re: What to do when your computer goes silent

Gene
 

Every time you do that, you are causing an improper shut down.  When silence occurs, if you want to shut down the computer, press the power button and release it after a half second or a second.  That command shuts down the computer by default, as far as I know, though others can verify that.  If you hold the button down until the computer turns off, you are not shutting down. 
 
If you press and hold the button for a moment, wait a while, and the computer doesn’t shut down, repeatedly execute the command alt e and if that doesn’t result in a shut down, repeatedly execute alt e followed by alt y.  Those commands may close programs Windows is asking if you want to close. 
 
Press and hold the power button until the computer shuts off only if you can’t initiate a ;proper shutdown.

Welcome (back) iPhone SE — but did Apple just cannibalize
itself?

Don't judge an iPhone by its cover... Remember iPhone SE?
It's that little rectangle which you could actually operate
one-handedly without spraining a finger.
Apple
released it in 2016, then stopped selling it in 2018. Now,
it's shockingly resurrecting iPhone SE for 2020, starting at
the (relatively) lower price of $399.

list of 2 items
• Looks: Pretty much the same as the iPhone 8 — a 4.7-inch
screen with a frame around it and a home button with Touch
ID. The real change lies on the inside...
• Specs: Better camera equipped with 4K video and portrait
mode. Also boasts a more powerful processor with the new A13
Bionic chip (sounds legit). Apple

says
it put "the brains" of iPhone 11 Pro in the body of SE.
list end

What interested us most was the timing of this launch...
Given the COVID-19 crisis, this might not seem like the best
time to ship a new product. Apple thinks it's a great time:

list of 2 items
• With the economy in shambles, it makes sense to introduce
a lower-cost phone. The new SE is $200 cheaper than the next
"cheapest" iPhone (and many Android models). A low-cost,
high-performance phone could thrive right now.
• With most Apple stores closed, people can't try before
they buy. Buying iPhones online becomes more attractive with
a lower price and newer product — Apple's trying to drive
excitement for online orders with this launch (people get
hyped on pre-orders).
list end
THE TAKEAWAY

Is Apple cannibalizing itself?... Cannibalization occurs
when a new product is so irresistible it steals sales from
your other (often higher-priced) products.
Tesla's Model 3 stole sales from its Model S. But Apple
probably did a lot of research on this risk and decided
that:

• More Upgrades: iPhone users might be more likely to
upgrade from their old phones after the launch of SE, with
that volume covering lost sales from pricier models.
• More Market Share: With this lower-priced option, Apple
might convert some Androiders — Google 's Android still
controls 70% of the world's cell phones.
• But if fancy new iPhone users change to the lower-priced
SE instead, that's a problem for Apple.

Olusegun

call Jim. If he weren't here, I'd probably be just trying to
shut down too and end up having to call Good Computer Guy,
don't Know if Gomer the Guru is still around, but someone.

Jim did work with me about a problem that comes on in the
morning with notifications about stuff, and I don't know how
we figured what key stroke would get me there, but I press
Windows A, then tab through notifications about Outlook and
Windows Defender and Spacebar. Then when I get to tablet
mode, I just exit whatever that is, notifications, I guess.
A friend of mine recently got Windows 10, and I needed to
show her, because she had the same problem.
