  • How do I setup a Wireless Speaker to my Laptop PC (WIN10)?

    How do I install / setup a new ALTEC(r) Model number IMW 901 Wireless speaker to my Laptop PC?

    Can / does WIN10 allow this speaker to run?

    I have restarted my system - but no sound / nor any Identifier is accessible when I click on my taskbar to change my audio-output. <-When I do push the Activate-button on the new Aluratek(r) router, the Altec speaker does chime.

    I even re-boot my system, but my WIN10 does not recognize that I am trying to use a different speaker.

    ...I have left both my WiFi router ^ and my new speaker powered-up all night long, but NOTHING.

    What now?

  • Which / if any News-reporter reports like Barbara Walters?

    I enjoyed watching informative News reporting styles like those that Barbara Walters used during her decades of News reporting for ABC News.

    Eager to watch more news-digging like Walters, Tom Brokaw, and Walter Kronkite (classic broadcasting reporters of years ago) which, if any News Journalists, Reporters or News Analysts still use Hard-core Broadcasting techniques that make the news-makers of today really-think-twice before speaking (like Barbara Walters made the Middle East leader, Yassar Arafat squirm in his seat during her international broadcasts of the time (1960's-1970's) during the wars of that time - which is still going on now)?

    Katie Couric?  -  No.

  • Do ALL the National food chains Follow-the-same menu recipes?

    I haven't Enjoyed eating-out for more than 40 years. <-All the regional restaurant chain outlets have gone so-far into the gutter with their menu-styles / food choices that either taste so bad or taste so bland that I prefer saving my money by cooking at home.

    Having returned from another-region, downstate from my home, I notice the very same thing. The menus offer the same style / cooking-selections all-across the country. Is this due to the Dining industry, across-the-board or am I merely-lucky / unlucky to visit the-same-management Corporation which buys Junk food to distribute across the same regional stores / even to "family owned restaurants"?

    Was their book, DESTINY the last published book in their series of Rest-of-the-Story Storylines?

  • What changes to my sleeping-situation should I make to control my snoring?

    In last night s conservatively Cold weather (low temps dropped to 33 degs F.) I seem to snore! <-I woke up this morning with a dry(?)-irritation on the top-surface of my tongue.

    In aim to raise the ambient moisture in my bedroom, I run a simple air humidifier. The moisture is so-thick that I do see condensation on my bedroom windows!

    I do turn-the Central air system to 62 F when I go to bed / even-though my heater does blow heated air through most of the night.

    I do use a NO-SNORE pillow on my Sleep Number bed. I turn my preferred Sleep Number to 25 - although I do use a thick Pad for further-support on my back.

    I am sleeping underneath a thick / padded comforter because - it is cold!

    What (if any changes to my currently preferred Sleep Number / or surface) differences should I take to control my (seeming) Snoring matter by either adjusting the heat or surface or anything-else?

    I am also adding a pillow underneath my knees (a secret that my Grandmother shared with me many-years ago) which has kept me lying flat on my back with my raised knees above the height of my head.

    I do use a swig of Dry mouth oral Rinse every night, before I go to bed. <-Is this possibly losing its Effect?

  • What difference should a Higher Octane gasoline provide in my car?

    Trying to fill the gasoline in my 2003 Chevy Blazer, the fueling station ran out of fuel at the pump!

    Having already paid for this fuel-up, the station agreed for me to finish-filling my tank with the higher-octane fuel; PREMIUM Unleaded at the cost of the lower-grade REGULAR Unleaded fuel I usually use in my car (simply because it is considerably less expensive.)

    What / how / if any "noticeable" difference should I notice using this higher octane fuel (90) vs. the cheaper fuel (83) I usually use in my car?

  • What additional devices can / should I connect via ALEXA around my house?

    I received an ALEXA device for Christmas, last year, so I am seeking ideas / suggestions for how I should PIMP-OUT my WiFi capabilities at home.

    After 7 months of asking ALEXA ^ for many impromptu ideas ("Alexa - how warm will it be this afternoon?" / "Alexa - Start 2-minute timer for my eggs" / "Alexa - How windy is it today in the Saharah Desert?" (etc.) I am seeking more ideas to ask for ALEXA s help at my home.

    I know that ALEXA can connect around my house via many sorts-of-outlets, etc. devices which connections I will eventually buy.

    What can be my options?

    I do additionally have a GOOGLE HOME Mini device in my bedroom (since I can only imagine how confused ALEXA can get while asking either her or my Google Home device from across my house for similar-answers.)

    What can be my connecting-device options for my house?
