This web site just won’t work on my iPad!!

In prior posts, I’ve talked about how we’re slowly moving away from computers to mobile devices.  It’s really evident in my house, as I’m sure it is at yours.  More often than not the computer sits there on the desk and you do your email, browsing, gaming or whatever on your mobile device — sometimes …

If my phone is getting smarter am I getting dumber?

When I was growing up, our phone looked like these… Then, as the years went by we saw a progression like this…. Next, we were all amazed when we could walk around the house without tangling up any cords… Then, suddenly the era of being able to talk anywhere arrived… And talk we did! You …

Where do we go from here?

I was reading something the other day and it got me thinking.  The article was about what the future held for electronics and tech devices.  If you read my blog regularly, you know that my friend, Stuart, wrote an editorial about the Millenials that I shared with everyone.

TV as we know it is changing — and it’s somewhat scary!

I’ve written a number of times about cutting the cord, but my friend Stuart, who’s the online presence for Solid Signal, recently posted an editorial about Millenials (and I didn’t even know what a Millenial was until this weekend!) and how they get their news, information and entertainment.

Finally — Windows 8.1 has arrived!

If you regularly read my blog, you know that I’m primarily and Mac and Apple user.  But I have and do dabble in the Windows world as well.  I was pretty good at it, if I do say so myself, until Microsoft went and decided that Windows 8 and “tiles” were the way to go …

Is the “Expert” always right?

I was helping a friend the other day.  And as I worked with him on his email problem I asked myself “How can anyone still be on AOL any more?”  AOL went from the top of the heap to a nearly non-existent entity over the last 10 years or so. So, why oh why would …

Talkin’ ’bout my Generation!

Every time you turn around there’s something new happening in the electronics industry.  And while new devices are really cool, the one thing that makes you wonder if you’re gadget is too old is when new software or firmware is released. iOS 7 is being released today, and at dinner the other night one of …

Sometimes I just want to be left alone

We all need our down time, but you know that smart phone you have just keeps going off. Sometimes it’s a phone call.  Sometimes its a text or email.  Don’t you wish that you could just tell it to leave you alone for a while?  Maybe you’re at a movie or in a meeting — …

Facebook 2.0 – Protecting Your Privacy

Privacy Settings

In my last post I talked about the basics of Facebook and how to get some value out of it for those of you who might be a little afraid of “putting yourself out there”. Now, I’d like to talk about how to set some of those privacy settings that limit who can see what …
