Hello Everyone,

Thanks to my trusty Smartphone app, in conjunction with my favorite web browser, I have resolved several issues with companies with whom I do business including Samsung, AT&T, Apple, my local water company, one of my banking services, a local restaurant chain, a grocery store, and a shopping facility (just to name a few) via Twitter.  Read the rest of this entry »

Hello Everyone, 

If you want to have Siri speak your current location, as of iOS 8.3 or later, simply say, “Tell me where I am” or ask, “Where am I?”

Happy Traveling.

Hello Everyone,

One of my friends, until now, has fervently refused to setup either a Touch-ID or PIN on her iPhone 6, despite my suggestions to the contrary.  She said she thought it was too much trouble.

Today, she called me and told me that she, upon returning from a short vacation with her family, accidentally left her phone in her sister’s house, approximately 800 miles away.  Read the rest of this entry »

Hello Everyone,

In the olden-days, back when Windows Mobile 6.1 was the latest and greatest mobile OS on the planet, as it ran flawlessly on my beloved Samsung Blackjack 2, during the hustle and bustle of daily life, I would sometimes, very rarely mind you, find myself taking out my frustrations on my wireless device, said device being referred to these days as a Feature Phone, by, let us say, pressing the keys a little more enthusiastically than normal (smile).  Read the rest of this entry »

Hello All,

I have recently become a huge fan of both the CVS Pharmacy website and, more importantly to me, the CVS iOS App. 

As an F.Y.I., in the area in which I live, there are over 11 CVS Pharmacies staffed with some of the nicest pharmacists and pharmacy technicians I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.  These people really care about their customers.

I am posting this to let you know that the CVS Pharmacy iOS app is marvelously accessible via VoiceOver, Apples’ software screen reading solution for the blind and low vision. 

For the first time in my life, I can independently access and manage all of my prescriptions with confidence and privacy.

To iOS VoiceOver users, whether you’re a new customer or a dedicated, longtime fan of the company, grab the app, setup an online account via either the app or their website and enjoy.

A heart-felt thanks to CVS Pharmacy for making medicine more manageable for the blind and low vision.

Hello All,

I am absolutely in love with the Passbook App and Apple Pay feature on my iPhone 6 Plus.

The number of brick & mortar stores in my area that accept Apple Pay transactions via the NFC protocol is relatively high.  As a result, I find myself using my iPhone to make purchases at least once a week, sometimes even more.   Read the rest of this entry »

Hello All,

Merry Christmas,
