Has Anyone Seen The Tape?

Posted in Apple Inc

The tape is missing! I cant find it anywhere! I know its right in front of me but I just cant locate it. Makayla! Come help your mom find the tape! Why am I desperately looking for the tape in the first place? Well, the reason is that my husband Scott and I just bought our very first house which means we have to pack the house up and tape up the boxes. You would think that this would be an easy task and for the most part it is but when your blind, it makes packing and moving just a bit more difficult, at least for me it is.
I’ve been moving since I was a teenager and you would think that it would get easier the more you do it but as my vision became worse, the harder it became for me to move across country or across the street without having some type of melt down, so this time I decided that I would try to be more organized and attempt to have some type of plan to make the three-tenths of a mile move go smoothly. I had plenty of boxes, plenty of newspaper and plenty of tape. I started with the dining room and within an hour I had packed up several boxes and I was very pleased with myself. I had even printed off labels to put on the boxes so that the people who would be helping us move would know where to put everything. My organizational plan was working and I was pleased with myself and what was even better was that I hadn’t had a melt down yet.

Recently I was in the mall with a loved one while they looked for the perfect pair of shades to accent their summer wardrobe and a thought occurred to me. I was passing the Apple store and began to think of some major projects that we are working on that will brighten the future for not only the blind community of Apple product users but for the disabled community as a whole.

Hidden Functions of F 1 Through F 12

Posted in Apple Inc, and Mac

People say that you should not take shortcuts in life, but when using my Mac I can appreciate a great shortcut that makes my work easier. Your F 1 to F 12 keys are fast and easy ways to change settings on your Mac without allot of fuss, but what about a shortcut to the shortcut?

Here is something you should keep in your mental arsenal when wanting to change master settings on your Mac. Adding the Option Key to the Function that you are trying to toggle opens its respective preference pain and tab within System Preferences. This proves useful when you need to change sound schemes, update video displays or a host of other settings easily.

Bring Your Own Device (B>Y>O>D)

Posted in Apple Inc, iOS, and Mac

Remember the parties in the back yard with the grill burning and all the folks with cups in hand listening to the jams blasting through the stereo? There were several coolers of this drink and that drink and you or your uncle would be back and forth between the kitchen and the grill filling the cups up with your favorite drink. Bring your own bottle (B.Y.O.B) is the quote the person planning the party would tell all who is invited. Read on to catch my drift…

Posted in Apple Inc, iOS, and Mac

Currently the iPhone and iPad come in three different sizes. When we say sizes we are speaking of hard drive capacities. The storage on these devices range from 16 GB, 32 GB or 64 GB. Often times we are asked “what size iOS device should I buy”?

We usually start by asking these three questions as follows:

1. Do you have a good backup strategy?
2. How big is your music, video and apps library?
