Gabbing with the Geeks: Windows 8

We recorded this conversation, using my Droid Razr and the free Smart Voice Recorder App.

Honest! We did see Manatee in the canal while we were on this walk!

Look close! Those gray blobs in the water are Manatee.

Podcasting Test

We are toying with the idea of doing a little podcasting.  But, it’s gotta be easy!  If we can figure out how to record the audio on our Droid phones and easily upload the file and put in a blog post like this, then we just might do it.

For this, I used the Smart Voice Recorder App on my phone, then I uploaded the resulting .wav file to a Podcast folder on our website and used a little bit of HTML5 code to emed the audio file here.  Let’s see if this works!

Our testing shows tis works fine with the Chrome browser, but not so much with Internet Explorer.  If it doesn’t work for you try this link.

Gabbing with the Geeks #13

Coming to you from upstate New York, this video was filmed inside the motorhome at Chris’s new office where she shows you how to turn a laptop into a desktop and Jim shows you his new iPad!  He’ll even demonstrate how you can play our Show-Me-How Videos on the iPad while it’s sitting next to your computer.  Just like having your own personal computer trainer at your side, but without having to set up a chair!  We talk about many other things as well.  Whenever a link can offer more information, we’ve added it below the video.

Gabbing with the Geeks #12: New Home, 4G

In this video you get a look at our new (to us) motorhome.  It’s a 2007 Gulf Stream Endura Diesel.  Referred to as a Super C, it is 37 feet long with 2 large slides and the floor plan is a unique 3 zone layout.  We love it.  Using our new 4G mobile hotspot from Verizon we are able to present our seminars from our motorhome even thought the audience is 1,000 miles away.  Check out the video to hear how we do it.

Verizon Mobile Broadband

We’re at the Tampa RV Super Show this week and we spent some time talking to the folks in the Verizon booth.  They are selling the Mi-Fi 3G mobile hotspot device as well as the 4G USB modems. Watch the video to see what they have to say, then click on over to our Forum to discuss it.
