A life hack for those of us in a certain age group.
This morning, I faced the challenge of finding the model number on a charger for my Black and Decker SmartDriver screwdriver — AKA, my girlie drill. The charger — which also doubles as a base for holding screwdriver heads — was zapped by a power surge and I needed to replace it.
I held the little box on the end of the cord in my hand and looked at it. I could see there were words there, but I couldn’t begin to read them.
I put on my +1.50 readers. No joy.
I used the Mag Light app on my iPhone to give me an enlarged view. Now I could read the all-important model number, but I couldn’t keep the image still enough to get all the characters.
So I took a picture of it with my phone, being sure to let the camera lens focus on the text. Then I viewed the photo on my phone and zoomed in to the model number information. There it was, clear as day, motionless, easy to read.
Technology is our friend.
Now I guess it’s time to get the +2.0 readers. Or maybe +2.50?
