Read Member F470953 GAIL RUSSELL's Review of the Tech Connect+ Sprint MIFI Plan Below:

Signed up for FMCA Tech Connect+ and taking advantage of the Sprint Unlimited Hotspot Plan

I would say I started with Hotspot Authorization at 11:30AM, it is now 8PM and my Hotspot Battery is at 32%.

I am very pleased with both the Franklin R-910 Hotspot and the Sprint unlimited data plan. Everything is working flawlessly. I am in a rural area, 30 miles from the nearest city (Buffalo, NY) and I have had enough signal strength to do everything I wanted to do on my computers & tablets and ereaders, fast & flawlessly.

I found the Hotspot intuitive to use and easy to operate. I even liked the way it felt with its rubber armour coating! After 8-1/2 hours of continuous running, the Hotspot feels cool to the touch all over. If I had to tell one Hotspot fault, it would be the display screen font type is very small, making it hard to read.

Tomorrow I will play around with more of my WiFi capable devices and let you know what I think. The unlimited data plan is just great to have! No more running to public hotspots for me like when my old data plan was getting near its limit. I am in Computer Nerd Heaven!

Motorhomers can improve their pictures using Picasa. 
I received an e-mail from someone asking me what  type of camera I use, because he likes the pictures in our blog so much. I do get compliments on my photos often – thank you! But, I answered him the way I answer all the others: “Yes, I have a good digital SLR camera (Canon Digital Rebel), but I believe what makes the difference is just a few seconds spent with each photo in Picasa!”

The picture of the split rail fence was in one of my recent blog posts and is one of my current favorites. It was taken in a city park in Winterset, Iowa. The main attraction of this park is a covered bridge. I like taking photos of things that aren’t the main attraction. This is just an old fence and a big tree trunk off in a corner of the park.

I liked the picture right from the camera.  But I really liked it after four clicks in Picasa …

1. I’m Feeling Lucky – this is a one-click automatic color and contrast adjustment. I click on this with every picture. If I don’t like what it does, I just click on Undo. I liked what it did on this photo.

2. Sharpen this is on the Effects tab. Right now, you have to hold down on Shift as you click it to see the results.

3. Saturation – this is a button on the Effects tab. Just one click and it applies an automatic amount of saturation – you can adjust the amount with the slider -- and then click Apply.  Saturation means more color. Just like adding another coat of paint. Saturation makes your picture richer and brighter. Not always something you want, but you can Undo if you don’t like it.

4. Shadows – this is a feature on the Tuning tab. I just moved the slider to the right a tiny bit. It does exactly what it says … increases the shadows. For this picture, I think it made it richer.

So, that’s it. I spent no more than four seconds on this photo to turn it from a nice picture to a really nice picture. Click “upload” and now it’s on the Web to share.
