We’re on a cruise ship, here’s what the Internet is like
The last time we cruised was in 2010 – using the Internet was expensive and slow. What is the Internet connection like now? It’s still expensive and slow,
but we did learn a few tricks.
How to change the frame of an iPhone Live Photo
Question from Mary:
Sometimes when I take a photograph with my iPhone 7, the snapshot moves briefly when I view it. Why?Sometimes this exceedingly brief “video”
has an image I would like to save and print at the beginning and not at the end of the movement. Specifically dolphins leaping from the water. Is there anyway I can stop the motion where I need to?
Yes! You can get the photo you want from a frame on the Live photo. And lots more!
How to control the auto-rotate on your phone
Isn’t it cool that your phone or tablet automatically rotates the contents when you change the way you’re holding it to see a picture take up more of the screen? That is unless it doesn’t! Or it does and you don’t want it to. This article explains where the setting is to control this feature on both iPhone and Android.
When we were brand new fulltime RVers, Jim helped our RV park get set up with Wi-Fi. We also helped a lot of other RVers get connected via Wi-Fi. Things haven’t changed much have they? Read the old article here.
The biggest change is that we don’t have to teach that anymore! First of all,
cellular connectivity has gotten so good that most people have all they need with their smartphone. Secondly, for people like fulltime RVers who do need to know more, our friends at the Mobile Internet Resource Center do such a good jub that we refer to them anytime someone asks us.
