First I went to the MAC Resource store to see if they had a cable to use with my used ALPHASMART.
I think it was all they could do not to laugh when I whipped out my handy dandy used ALPHASMART.
Apparently it is an ANTIQUE!! They don't even make cables for it anymore
It was advertised as "almost like new" machine. Huh?
Well, I was miffed, but still undaunted. I came home, typed on the clunky keyboard, ever optimistic and tried to plug it into my DH's laptop. A PC.
Nope. Didn't work. Nothing connected.
I am now officially beyond miffed. I refuse to work any longer trying to use this ridiculous antique that I thought I had saved money (smart me???? not). I emailed the seller and asked how to return it and get my money back.
But now what? I had such high hopes. But I refuse to spend over $200 on a machine that might increase my productivity while I am sitting in the car at a red light cursing the traffic.
I decided it was a cheap lesson (well not so cheap for me, but cheaper than buying a new one) and I really don't need it. I'll read other MS contest entries and haul my lovely MAC out to write if I feel like it. I do prefer the long hand, fix it way anyway method for first draft ideas.
Oh well... this just teaches me not to buy a used KINDLE.
