Supposedly life is becoming more wireless. Not so! Granted, I’m more high tech than most, but looking around my office, I see things like the disasters shown on this page.

iOS 7 Makes People Vomit

Filed under: News — admin @ 8:14 am

Complaints abound that Apple’s latest mobile operating system is inducing vertigo and nausea in users, specifically its onscreen animations.

I’ve seen the upgrade on an iPad. The home screen icons shimmy left and right as you turn the tablet. It’s an interesting 3D effect, but I can see how it would nauseate people. It’s probably the same sensation I feel with Samsung’s highly-annoying Whistle notification sound. Sheesh, talking about driving people nuts.

Stop The Killer Robots!

Filed under: News — admin @ 8:48 am

This post’s title is making light of what I think is an important issue: As technology leaps forward, when will mankind retain the wisdom not to empower non-living things with sentient abilities, such as to discern what to kill?

Autonomous killer robots are real. More are coming every day. The technology to create these things isn’t the issue. As with all technology, the relevant question isn’t whether we can do a thing but do we need to do a thing?

I know I joke about the robot apocalypse. I hope you chuckle every time you read it, but it’s a very serious possibility.

GOOG 1000

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

Google’s stock poked above $1000/share last week as its advertising revenue peaked. Wall Street’s reaction was a little insane, which isn’t news, of course. But pumping up a $900 stock to $1000 does seem to pique curiosity and interest.

Google Stock Hits $1000

Filed under: News — admin @ 10:40 am

Holy Smokes! Google’s stock (GOOG) just jumped up 10% today to leapfrog over the $1000 mark. It’s one of a handful of stocks to reach that goal.

GOOG was introduced at $100 a share many moons ago. It’s never looked back.

Today’s jump reflects positive ad click sales. And it’s driving up the Wambooli Tech Stock Index something fierce.


Ten Famous Nerds of TV and the Movies

They could be evil. They could be sloppily dressed. They may hang with a group, but most likely they’re loners. They are the famous nerds of television and film. No matter what the show, live or animated, sit them down in front of a computer and they’ll know exactly what to do.

Word File Management

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

ma01-Word Document Icon My Word For Dummies books don’t cover the topic of file management. If they did, I’d have less room in the book to write about word processing, which is kind of important. File management remains a valid topic, however, so I thought I’d show you some Word file management tricks in this post.

Camera App Options Galore!

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

Camera-app You’ve heard the complaint before: Real cameras don’t have ringtones. That’s true, but it’s becoming less and less true every day. The high resolution cameras available on today’s tablets and smartphones can run circles around the professional digital cameras of a few years ago.

Disastrous Second Acts

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

The history of the personal computer is dotted with amazing software success stories. The scruffy programmers who slave over their code are rewarded with fame and financial success. But can they do it again? Often times, their second effort smells less like number one and more like number two.
