Geek Squeak – “How To Geek” Tells You Why SSD Is The Single Biggest Upgrade You Can Give Your Computer

August 26, 2014

SSD (Solid State Drive) – Have no moving (mechanical) components. This distinguishes them from traditional electromechanical magnetic disks such as hard disk drives (HDDs) or floppy disks, which contain spinning disks and movable read/write heads.Compared with electromechanical disks, SSDs are typically more resistant to physical shock, run silently, have lower access time, and less latency.

Now that we have the definition SSD out of the way, make sure you read the article at “How To Geek” on “It’s Time Why You Need to Upgrade to an SSD Right Now“.

SanDisk Connect 32GB Wireless Flash Drive For Smartphones And Tablets

August 25, 2014

Everyday I become more enchanted with technology and what is out there (NOW) for our use. I came across a really neat product from SanDisk called the SanDisk Connect, that if I described it in one line, it would be something like this — “The SanDisk Connect Is A Flash Drive On Steroids”…

This drive is like no other flash drive. With the SanDisk Connect you can wirelessly store, share, stream movies, photos, music, and documents across your smartphones, tablets and computers. If you are looking to upgrade to another flash drive, I would definitely take a look at one of these [CLICK HERE]. The cost is more than a typical flash drive; however, the capability here outweighs the cost. Great customer reviews, as well.

A TTS (Text To Speech) Program With Functionality Of ASR (Automatic Speed Recognition Integrated)

August 11, 2014

[FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] A TTS (Text To Speech) Program With Functionality Of ASR (Automatic Speed Recognition Integrated) – One of my hobbies in life is this blog. To assist me with getting a good read on what I publish, I use a TTS (Text To Speech) program that allows me to hear my written words. Typically when we write it is all visual; however, when something is read back to you it changes the whole perspective of things.

The program that I use for this purpose is a FREE (portable app) standalone program called DSpeech.

DSpeech gives you the ability to copy and paste text into the DSpeech reader and have it read back to you using different voices. You can also save the audio output to a variety of different audio file formats (such as WAV, .MP3, AAC, WMA or OGG).

DSpeech is a TTS (Text To Speech) program with functionality of ASR (Automatic Speech Recognition) integrated. It is able to to read aloud the written text and choose the sentences to be pronounced based upon the vocal answers of the user. It is specifically designed to quickly and directly provide the functions and improved practical usefulness that are requested by this kind of program. In the meantime, the invasiveness and resource consumption is minimal.
