Hi, I’m AJW009, or AJ, my partner and I are pretty deep in the Apple ecosystem and are very happy there. I’m currently researching Smart Homes with a view to buying a smart doorbell, and expanding my smart home set-up in future to aid my disability. Any help with Smart Doorbells and/or Smart Locks would be greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone! I've loved electronics for most of my life, now retired, excited to dig into a few of my old laptops. Previously worked with SCADA and PLC's - loved it.
I started out with a Commodore 64, then a 286. Tough learning curve.

Hello. I'm 75 and a retired software engineer in the Detroit area who is still very much into the latest (mostly smartphone) tech. I started with a Palm Pilot and then took up Android smartphones as soon as they came out. I even wrote and marketed a fairly successful genealogy app that's still available on the Google app store (although I gave up maintaining it a couple years ago). The only annoying thing about being old and tech savvy is being patient with the "kids" in stores who look at you and assume that you're an idiot about all things technical! :)

Soapstef here!! New account here because heaven only knows what happened to the last one. 🤣 Much better experience now with my new Samsung Z Fold3! I can read, reply and fact check all at once...yay. I'm 47 years old (had to pause & remember that). From Cali, but been in Tucson, AZ over 20 yrs now and realized that I do actually prefer the mountains to the ocean. Tech news help me shop...so keep it coming! 😆

Hello, I'm Paul Bob, a controls engineer and tech junky. I alway use Tom's Hardware to build another 'screamin' machine' that usually ends up as a 'Wishlist' on Amazon. I've dabbled in Arduino and many sensor applications. Had a patent design for a car alarm that used Zigbee Ethernet.

I'm interested in IOT and scada networking. I came here to this FORUM to find out more about smart home stuff.

Hi friends. Thanks for the warm welcome, MMohammed. I found this site with a search for a non-booting issue. I wasn't able to post my fix onto the thread that led nowhere new, so I've added my own. I believe we get ahead, not by climbing over others but by lifting each other and sharing LIFE HACKS we've learned along the way. Where would we be without sites like this, youtube, etc.

Been with Windows since version 3.1!!! Started a one-woman graphic design firm in mid 80's when being a sole entrepreneur and working from home just wasn't the thang. I considered myself a "windows warrior" for many years, taking an atypical approach in the graphics field ,using Adobe on windows rather than falling into the Apple vortex. My career allowed me to challenge my mind, channel my creativity, and help others succeed ... most importantly, our two daughters, for whom I was able to be at home and who had minimal daycare as babes. With hubby's help and the ability to work at all hours of the day/night, our girls were only in daycare a handful of hours per week, so I could offer core phone hours and attend offsite meetings.

Loved it for 30 years until my spiritual awakening/calling brought me to "the heart of healing" and an innate ability to heal, not computers and marketing dilemmas, but people. I've retired my "marketing maven" hat and now use my marketing skills to do my own web and design work.

Not so happy with the shifts Windows has made toward the Apple look/feel. If I wanted Apple I would have bought one! Felt that upgrade to windows 95 was great (system restore ... be still my heart), version 7, too ... since then ... meh! Love my Android.

Love and light, KB04090

Hey I'm Mack, and new here. I became disabled in 2007, after years of rehab and surgery. Finally I've have time to get into some trouble, I'm setting up a TV, Audio, and Gaming area for myself, and have found I'm way out of my league. So I'm here looking for ideas and answers. I will definitely contribute as well as listen! Thanks
