Device ergonomics

microwave radiationIt is important to constantly remind ourselves about computer ergonomics so that we don’t fall foul of what appears to be easy use devices. One of the biggest concerns is children’s use of devices. Their bodies absorb microwaves more effectively than adult bodies. You can read information on collective-evolution  and environmental health trust.  

Given we are surrounded by technology it is very difficult for us to deal with these issues. We need a clear picture and we need a clear process. The video supplies some very helpful information about trackpad use. Even phones and tablets become track pads as we use them with gesturing. It’s important we listen to people who know what they are talking about.

canscribe has set up a list of things to check for office and home office ergonomics . It can operate as a checklist and a reminder. Looking after ourselves in a technological environment is as vital as when we looked at the issues in industrial areas and environments.

iOS 11 tips and tricks

iOS 11 has been beta tested since June 5th this year. Its official public release will be 19th September . Next week! I could have picked a shorter video but the one I have selected is well made and goes through everything you could possibly want to know about iOS 11. It does have a lot of features and it differs from previous iOS versions because there really is an emphasis on gesturing and features. A lot of people don’t get the best out of their devices because they are unaware of what they can actually do. Take 15 minutes to learn about iOS 11 and you’ll not only know a lot, you’ll get more out of your Apple phone and devices. There are 20 tips on techradar to help you too but the one about annoying Android friends could probably have been left out.

How to insert a SIM card

It came to my attention last week there are people who don’t know how to insert a SIM card into a phone or feel insecure about replacing one. They don’t know where to start and they don’t know what to do and think they will break their very expensive phone. I have further noticed, now I want to do this blog post, that YouTube has mostly old videos about inserting SIM cards. The world is probably assuming that by now we know how to do this because mobile devices are no longer new technology. They have been around for a long time. I have used a video for an iPhone. There is a video for Android phones here. If you cannot insert and remove a SIM card you are not in control of your device and can’t use it independently. We all need to know something this basic and we should ensure people around us are comfortable with an essential functional behaviour with regard to mobile devices. And what does SIM stand for ? System Information Module.

Best Smart Phone apps 2017

Because we all need new smart phone apps! We do. Developers are highly productive and becoming more creative and so it pays to check from time to time to see if there are apps which will improve and enhance your life and productivity. Phones are becoming more the must have device because they can now control and manage so much as well as serve their function as a communications device. Both android and iPhone are offering some really good new apps this year. PCMag has 100 new apps for android phones you can have a look through . popularmechanics has 23 iPhone apps for your consideration and then the video offers some more. Have fun!

Upgrade your blog template

Blog upgradeBefore you upgrade , go to WP-Admin for your blog on WordPress and to the Tools which is the spanner icon 3rd up from the bottom. Select Export and download your xml file. That preserves your blog as it is.  Do that in any case because it is the back up for your blog. All my upgrades so far have gone well except one so the last one is not going to happen yet. The one which has been difficult has been glitchy and odd. Every other one has been straight forward. I am now reconstructing the tetchy blog and am just about here. If I click on customisations it is becoming jumpy and silly. Patience is a virtue. I am getting there , though. Some blog templates put everything at the bottom because it means they run faster on a tablet or smartphone. Classic mobile you-do-not-need-to know thinking. Mobile technology strips things down and so you are not getting the full experience necessarily of a website as you would on a computer. If you know that, you know what you don’t easily have access to. If you do not know that then we are back to the WYSIATI thinking and it can be limiting. I am trying to build blogs which have good information and then good links out but I also want them to run efficiently. Getting the new templates has really improved mobile performance and that was my main aim.  On a tablet this blog runs without the sidebars and all of that information is right at the bottom after you have scrolled down. On my phone it is more like a burner feed and just shows the text. This blog , though , is now running very fast and effectively on mobile devices and I am now happy the new look. Basically it takes a little bit of time and tinkering.
