I remember when we got our first ever PC way back when I was about 14. We had dial up internet and a monitor that weighed a ton and had horrible resolution. Not everyone had PCs at home though and so many of my friends had to do their homework at school when they had access to a computer that could also print. It’s crazy to think that nearly 20 years ago I used that first PC to use MSN Messenger, play Neopets and annoy my mum and sister by tying up the phone line.
Working from home and having a pretty busy life means needing as many things as possible to keep us organised. Erin has started nursery now and we sometimes get emailed calendar dates and school activities that will be happening soon and I really like to have these things printed out for both me and John. To make our lives a bit easier we were recently sent the Epson EcoTank ET-7750 printer. Now, until recently I didn’t know what an EcoTank was so many other people might not either. Unlike a regular printer, the EcoTank works with
Wow, it’s now 2018 and this year will be my first full year being self-employed. Technically, I was self-employed for all of 2017 but I also worked in a supermarket until the end of the summer. Working from home full time is quite a lot of pressure as I have to earn a certain amount each month to keep up. Keeping on top of everything is a hell of a lot of work so here are some ways to keep your blog organised in the New Year. Technology It would be lovely to stay that
John and I love to get away and this year we have been on a fair few weekends away and a holiday. Neither of us drive though so we always have to use public transport. Not all trains have plug sockets so sometimes we’re stuck for 4+ hours without a way to charge our phones and tablets. When John and I go away together we end up with 2 phones, a camera, tablet and a laptop depending on how long we go for. A power bank is a must have in our family! Varta are
Sometimes we are asked to review certain products that are super exciting and different. Recently, we were asked to review the ROXI music streaming system by Electric Jukebox. ROXI is the only UK based music streaming system and it currently costs £199 and comes with a full year’s music subscription. There are three colours available; Red, Black and Blue. The ROXI is probably one of the easiest things we’ve ever had to set up. Once the base unit is plugged in to your television, all you need to do is connect to your WiFi using
I have always had Android phones and have only recently discovered a love for the iMac (with a huge want for a MacBook Pro)! I have been toying with the idea of switching from Android to iPhone when my last upgrade came about but the phone I wanted was no longer available and I wasn’t overly impressed with what else I could have had. Instead, I went with a Huawei P9 which I absolutely love. It was always going to take some doing to make me like something more than this phone. So, when Three
