With wm6.1 when I am in a text message and I have a fairly long stream going is there a way to get to the bottom or last reply quickly?

Although this has not been officially sanctioned by Code Factory, to skip to the bottom of a long SMS thread, as MSS begins reading the thread from top to bottom, repeatedly tap the down arrow key to quickly jump through the thread.  Alternatively, once you tap the down arrow key once, you may hold the key down and, depending upon your profile settings, a beep will indicate when you have reached the end of the thread.  Read the rest of this entry »

The following link will take you to my revised review of the Samsung Epix SGH-907 Smartphone when access with Code Factory’s Mobile Speak software for the blind and low vision.

In short, I would say that 80% of the Epix phone features are screen reader accessible.  I definitely recommend this phone for Mobile Speak Pocket PC intermediate and advanced users as well as technology early-adopters.

A special thanks to Mr. Chris Polk for teaching me the finer points of Mobile Speak for Pocket PC which made this revised review possible. 

“Chris, I owe you one, Man!” 

Most Sincerely,

At the time of this post, there is no specific setting to enable SMS Alerts from the gMail Inbox. 

However, there is a way to have gMail notify you via SMS and it’s oh-so-easy:   Read the rest of this entry »

Cry for me. 

Will you not cry for me? 

Why do you not cry for me?

I have seen you cry for the brave, the bold, and the blundering who do nothing but blame you for their misdeeds.

I have seen you cry for the rancorous, the vicious, and the wicked who only seek to destroy you.

You readily cry for yourself at each opportunity, be it self made or self-fulfilling, of which I do not know.  Read the rest of this entry »

Seven Ways to Make Water Taste Better

Simple tips for livening up your drinking water

Not everybody has a taste for water, but we all need it to ensure that our bodies continue functioning properly. If you want to drink more water, but aren’t crazy about the taste (or lack thereof), here are some tips that can make it more enjoyable:

Add fresh fruit. Citrus fruits, such as lemons, limes, and oranges, are classic water enhancers, but other fruit flavors might also tempt your taste buds. Try crushing fresh raspberries or watermelon into your water, or adding strawberry slices. Cucumber and fresh mint are refreshing flavors as well — especially in summer.
