ye olde laptop has died. Things will be weird blogging from an iPad mini and an iPhone but should lead to more amusing autocorrect errors than usual.

    A great life hack for me has always been buying a crappy lap-/desk- top from a thrift store, since it’s easy to forget that Windows was ever on it.
    Oh, wait – I just saw the list of all the i-gadgets.
    Never mind. I’ll bet the ‘parting-is-such-sweet-sorrow’ scene with you and your wallet is heartbreaking, though…

    Howdy Ten!

    I’ve used an iPad in lieu of a computer. It sucks. It isn’t a computer. You can use it as a word processor, but it doesn’t get along well with google docs or any of the other online “office” type apps. They are made by competitors, so no matter what they say about compatibility, they don’t cohabitate. But, probably works in WordPress.

    I find it difficult to type on a phone’s keyboard. It’s just too small. And, for WordPress, the keyboard on a pad takes up too much of the screen. I’m using a Kindle Fire — a poor man’s iPad — with a keyboard now. It works well.

    If you’re happy with cloud storage and aren’t using anything more than the standard word processing and spreadsheet apps, then you can do it all. I’m frustrated by not being able to manipulate photos as well as I did on my old PC, though.

    Good luck. Hope you can get a replacement to your liking soon!

    As for Star Trek, my favorite line was after Spock had his brain removed and carted off, McCoy is examining him and says the eternal “His brain Jim, It’s gone”. That fits so many situations in life.
    As for computers, I love my Acer Chromebook. Cheap to buy, no tears when it goes. Everything is backed up on the cloud and replacement is pain-free. On the other hand, they only last a few years. My wife just got a Lenovo Chromebook but we haven’t had it long enough to comment on it.
    Keep up the snark

  6. In 2020, I replaced a ten-year-old HP laptop with another HP. This new one was a “business model” somebody ordered and then canceled. WIN10PRO, 8GB DDR4 RAM, DVD burner, 256GB SSD, WI-FI, USB3, HDMI, all for 650 dollars at BEST BUY. My desktop is a powerful PC, but there are times when my PC skills have to leave the house; so, I take the laptop.
