Your Personal Technology - A Question

Postby Philip » Mon Jan 22, 2018 12:33 pm

Just taking a quick poll.

How many here post via: a phone; tablet; or PC - which do you use, or mostly?

I'm guessing us dinosaurs and oft-lengthier posters use a PC. Am I wrong?

I post almost exclusively by iPhone. But, my posts are almost exclusively short and meaningless drivel.

I could never post the long, well thought out posts of someone like Kurieuo, by iPhone.

I've tried voice to text, or whatever it's called.

Complete fail. I have to really concentrate, and enunciate everything.

Maybe some of my left over Bahstin accent has something to do with that.

Rick, are you telling me you've now traded one bad accent for another one? :lol:

Though raised in the South, I have an almost undetectable Southern accent. I've had people guess I was from the Midwest. My CT-bred wife has virtually no discernible accent as to anywhere she might be from. But her siblings all have very strong Northeastern / New England accents. I will say that the talk to text on Apple products has gotten VERY good. Even the voice capture on my HULU control picks up language quite well. The only problem is, it still needs to be edited afterward, is a little glitchy. But it can also save a heap of time!

PC...sometimes the Iphone.
People treat facts as relevant more when the facts tend to support their opinions. When the facts are against their opinions, they don't necessarily deny the facts, but they say the facts are less relevant or insignificant. This is ofcourse because believing things that make you feel comfortable, takes a priority. And I think that should not be the case if one is after truth.

I'm a dinosaur - mostly, I use a PC in my study. However, for short responses on G&S or reading the news in the mornings, I'll use my ipad. Also, short stuff before I fall asleep with my iPhone. A PC is much better for nuanced and lengthy writing. I want to see at least a page of copy, especially when writing or editing. I make far more mistakes on the portable Apple devices.

You may have a point. I'm still a caveman. But my wife wasn't complaining when I clubbed her and dragged her around by her hair! Oh wait, this isn't the BSMD thread.

Must you really?
You also misspelled it, it's BDSM, not BSMD.

My wife has a Bachelor of Science MD.
