Off-Topic / Re: Amazon Echo Show
« on: Yesterday at 07:19:25 am »Message ID: 1303948
I received an Amazon Dot for free with another purchase i made.  I hooked it up and have only used it once over a 6 week period.  I don't know how much use I will actually get out of it but I do have it.  I am more interested in getting some smart products such as a thermostat and light bulbs.
It's all a matter of habit. We use ours constantly all day (which is why we upgraded to the show) for simple things like time, weather, timers, reminders, questions like how old is Dolly Parton, who holds the record for most 3 point shots in the NBA, or anything that comes to mind while talking or watching TV. I knoe I could look it up on Google, but asking Alexa is so simple and fast and always on.

I would like to interview the guy that runs PayPal on National TV, so I could ask why they keep screwing so many people with no recourse.

Little changes take place all the time, but nothing major. You should be back up to full speed very soon.

Payments / Re: Direct Deposit Question

PayPal is no longer an option for me since they terminated both my accounts and froze the money in them for six months each. They won't even allow me to close the accounts, so I went to the bank and told them to allow credits but deny any debits, so they can't get any more of my money.

We have watching Veronica Mars ( a made for Hulu Series), since our son is visiting from Alaska and he doesn't have Internet (let alone Hulu), so we watched two or three episodes a night.

Getting furious only raises your blood pressure, it doesn't have any effect on them at all. There are a few million people waiting behind you to take your place.

Off-Topic / How many legs does a dog have if you call his tail a leg?

He still has four legs, just because you call the tail a leg doesn't make it one.

Off-Topic / Amazon Echo Show

We have had the Echo Dot for a couple of years and still get a kick out of it, so when I saw the Echo Show on sale for Cyber Monday I ordered the 8 inch one for the kitchen. That seems to be the best size from all the reviews I read.

Anyone else getting one?

I forgot to watch the AMA Awards.  I got busy and read about it the next day.
You can still watch it on YouTube or some of the streaming services like Hulu.

Off-Topic / Addicted to speed

I started noticing that some of my friends (that also use computers), have newer machines that were a lot faster than my old clunker.  Then it came to my attention that there is a new product online call a hybrid solid state hard disk drive.  It has regular storage like all the old style hard drives, but it also has an eight GB solid-state drive built in where it keeps all the most used software (like you're operating system) and only goes to the slower hard drive when it needs something.  They claimed that it increases the speed of your computer by 3 to 5 times.

Well after reading a lot of reviews and comments by other people who have tried these I decided to bite the bullet and go for one myself and I'm extremely happy that I did.

I love new toys anyway!

FusionCash / Re: How's your earnings today

Just started fusioncashing today. Let's see  :thumbsup:
Welcome to the family and I sincerely hope you find it comfortable here. Most old-timers adapt to fit their own needs and love it. but honestly most I know about drift off for one reason or another. I have made Fusioncash part of my life for over a decade and have appreciated the opportunity to enhance my retirement income so simply.

The great thing I find with Fusioncash is I can take a few days off and still do great, even if I have to take two months to reach cashout (which would be larger). For example I had to install a new hard drive and get all my programs back up to speed (still doing that), but I will be just under the minimum, which means with even a little extra effort next month I should be able to have a double cashout.

Offers / Re: Piggyback Surveys Are a Pain

It depends on whether or not I have enough time to spend on going through the loop.  I've actually found that process useful in the past.  There have been times when I needed just a little bit more cash to cash out and was willing to be rerouted to a new survey over and over again.  And I've actually turned up a survey that worked for me after being sent to several.  It was always rewarding to go through so many that rejected me, then to find one that paid!!!
I have also had the experience of being disqualified after a chain of attempts and received a 5 cent DQ award instead of the regular penny.

i think it is incredible 1. that this forum allows information to be shared like this. but 2. because the original poster came to this forum instead of looking up the question online. i assume the question was asked in the first place because the op is from the older generation. from my experience with my parents, older people never thing to look up their questions on the internet. It's either someone around me knows how to do it or it simply can't be done.
I think at age 81 I would be considered "older", but I use Google and YouTube to look for answers most every day.
