I, Robot

I, Robot

Picture this, if you can: an 11-year-old girl sits cross-legged on the floor watching the first episode of a little show called Star-Trek. Wide-eyed, she watches as unheard-of technology is displayed as a backdrop to the plot. Automatic doors, computers, voice-responsive computers, hand-held communication devices!

Prodding and Prompting: Medication Reminders

Prodding and Prompting: Medication Reminders

I am sure I’ve written about medication reminders before, or have I? Only kidding! I pretty sure I haven’t written about medication reminders specifically. Have I? OK, so never mind all that, the point is that in today’s busy, hectic world it is so easy to lose track of even simple things putting urgent things, like tracking medications, dosages, and timing, even more at risk.

Testing 1 - 2 - 3

Testing 1 - 2 - 3

So, I sat down this morning to write my next blog post, which was going to be about ergonomics.  I chose ergonomics as a topic as I was uncomfortable in the position I was sitting at my laptop. (It’s all about me …) Anyway, then I remembered that Windows has a built-in voice recognition program!   If I were to use voice recognition, I could sit back comfortably and simply dictate my blog post, not worrying about my ergonomics for a few minutes.
