The following is a very gracious letter I received in response to my article entitled â€œDoctor Doctor Give Me The Newsâ€.Â [Click Here to read the original article.]
My name is Dorine.
I have a T-Mobile Dash and I was able to create medication reminders on my phone by following the directions that you posted.Â It is an individual thing. For me it is a lifesaver because I have a T.B.I. and often forget to take my medications.
Thanks Mark I like having my independence.
It irks me to have an aide remind me.Â I am on my way to being caretaker free.
REPLY FROM MARK
Thank you for taking the time to send this feedback.Â
I wish you all the best.
QUESTION FROM JAY
I wanted to talk to you in regards to the principle of why you posted that article in your blog. [Click Here to read the article being discussed.]Â Not to harshly criticize the content, or even the effectiveness of the application, but more so for my own interest as I am looking at entering into assistive technology consulting for my local area.Â Read the rest of this entry »

why arenâ€™t you having a balanced approach to the technology reviews that is out there.Â EveryÂ thing that you have been posting on to your blog has been favoring google as if they need support and you have been demonstrating an anti Microsoft bias in your postings to your blog.Â Kind of funny considering you are using or probably using windows mobile on your mobile device since google doesnâ€™t have an accessible operating system for any of their products.Â Read the rest of this entry »
Recently, I received several emails requesting that I make a recommendation for an accessible medication prescription reminder application that can be used on a mobile device.
While there are both commercial and free medication prescription reminder applications available for use on a mobile device, I cannot recommend them at this time for several reasons not the least of which being that they are not comfortably accessible with screen reading software, like Mobile Speak, for the blind and low vision.
Not to worry my friends for as is often the case, Google provides a free, easy-to-use, and reliable tool that will remind you when to take your medicine.Â Read the rest of this entry »

Because of all the recent emailsÂ I’ve received regarding the Verizon Wireless SMT5800 Smartphone, I decided to go into a corporate store and take a look at it, today.
I must admit, I was very impressed with what I saw.Â The SMT5800 is a very, very handsome device.Â It has a good solid heft to it and it is very well put together.Â I really like the way the phone slides revealing the full QWERTY keyboard which is remarkably tactile.Â In fact, I could hardly keep myself from opening and closing the phone while I reviewed it.Â It was so much fun.Â Were I to own this model, I doubt very seriously if I would get any work done because I really got a kick out of opening and closingÂ that thing.Â
Verizon Wireless, like the other two major wireless providers in the USA, continues to sell models with Windows Mobile 6.0.Â
Don’t worry A T & T Wireless Blackjack 2 users, the BJ2 is still my first love; but I will admit I regretted having to give the SMT5800 back to the store manager. (Smile)
I will definitely begin recommending the SMT5800 for Verizon Wireless subscribers.
Congratulations to all of you who chose this very high quality, ultra convenient Smartphone.Â Â
Recently, AT&T WirelessÂ released Windows Mobile 6.1 for the Samsung Blackjack II Smartphone.Â This is a free upgrade that I strongly encourage you to install as it greatly improves the responsiveness and functionality of the Samsung Blackjack II Smartphone. Read the rest of this entry »
