How To Add Bluetooth Wireless Technology To An Old Sound System

There is an abundance of “excellent” sounding speaker and stereo systems out there that people end of disposing of because those systems lack the bluetooth wireless technology where you can stream music from your smartphone (or tablet). My advice to you is this: Do not dispose of your speakers or sound system; especially if it is a system of excellent sound quality and especially if it is a system that you have an emotional attachment to. There is a very simple (and inexpensive) solution to this problem. It is called a “bluetooth audio adapter”…

For example, I have an older Bose tabletop audio system that is of older technology, that still sounds as good as the day I purchased it; however, it lacks the ability to stream music from my smartphone via bluetooth. To remedy this problem, I purchased a bluetooth audio adapter, by Logitech (see below), that connected to the “audio in” jack on the Bose unit. The adapter came with its own power cord and an audio cord that can be used either via the RCA or 3.5mm jacks. After connecting the bluetooth adapter to my Bose unit and powering it up, it was just the matter of pairing the adapter with my phone. I was literally up and running in minutes and now I have an endless source of music that can be steamed and played through my Bose unit.

If you want to explore other adapters, there is a link provided below that will redirect you to Amazon to look at the choices. I went with Logitech due to Logitech being a commonly known brand name.

As I indicated, the adapter I ended up going with was the “Logitech Bluetooth Audio Adapter for Bluetooth Streaming” (at Amazon of course). Click on the links below to see the reviews (which is over 3,200 reviews).

A Flash Drive That Is As Small As Your Thumbnail

Recently purchased a couple of the SanDisk Cruzer Fit 8GB USB 2.0 Low-Profile Flash Drives to use with my car and truck audio systems (which means — “no more CD’s”)… Due to the small size of these drives they are best suited for purposes such as this where you plug them in and leave them in place.  I am thinking about purchasing some more of these flash drives, in the larger capacities (>8GB) to serve as my tech toolbox and carry in my wallet. When I got these drives I was really fascinated with how small they were and was saying to myself “How is this possible?”…

TECH DEAL – Metro Vacuum ED500 DataVac 500-Watt 0.75-HP Electric Duster 120 volt

To maintain optimum cooling performance and stability of your computers and electronics it is necessary that on a regularly scheduled basis that you blow out the dust that accumulates. I have seen the interior components of computers so laden with dust that a blanket had actually developed causing the computer to overheat and stop functioning. Not forgetting to mention that dust build up on electronics can cause an overheated condition that potentially can lead to a fire.

A solution to this issue is to used cans of compressed air. This is a good solution; however, it can also be a costly solution with the costs of canned air being as high as $7 or 8$. A solution to eliminating the ongoing expense of canned air is the Metro Vaccuum Electric Duster. Bite the bullet on the cost of this duster and never buy cans of compressed air again.

Don’t let the name of this product fool you into thinking this is a vaccuum cleaner. It is the opposite, it is a duster with a 3/4 HP blower and it is awesome (and powerful) that will blow the dust out of just about anything. When blowing dust from your computer, make sure you do it in an open air environment (like outdoors) and make sure you wear eye protection.

I found a good deal on this at Amazon that you can use as a price comparison and where you can get a good read on the customer reviews (of over 1500 reviews). I cannot emphasize the importance of keeping your electronics dust free.

In a nutshell; Windows 8.1 was an update to Windows 8.  Windows 8.1 Update, which is a completely different thing from Windows 8.1, is an update to Windows 8.1 (and Windows 8). Still confused?

The bottom line is that you want to make sure your computer is completely up to date. To determine if you have the Windows 8.1 Update installed go to the Start screen. If you see a Search button near your account name at the top of the Start screen, you already have the update.
