Word’s Fertile Fields

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

One of the most powerful features in Microsoft Word is the field. It’s a topic on which I don’t go into detail in my book, Word For Dummies, mostly because I don’t have the pages. Still, you gain a lot of power from Word once you understand how useful fields can be.

If You Could Only See the Wi-Fi

Filed under: News — admin @ 10:14 am

In some of my books, as a joke, I write about Wi-Fi and cellular signals everywhere, “Don’t duck!” Despite my jocularity, the visual representation presented in this article is pretty stunning.

If we could see the wireless signals, and providing they didn’t look like rainbows, my guess is that environmental groups would protest. And it does make me wonder whether any long-term harmful effects to this radiation exist. Remember, when X-Rays first came out they were considered a harmless novelty. Time will tell.

Apple’s Siri v. Google Now

Filed under: News — admin @ 9:15 am

The grades are in, and they both . . . could stand some improvement.

I really believe voice input is the future of mobile devices, almost to the point that the wrist device won’t see any success until it’s sports a completely audio interface. The two giants Apple and Google are marching in the right direction, but still have quite a ways to go.

On Planet Windows — and even Planet Macintosh — upgrades to your computer’s operating system are deliberate things. You obtain the upgrade, you install it. The operative part of the phrase is “you.” Yes, you are the doer. With your Android device, you are merely a passive observer.

SEO Optimization

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

When I write a book, I write it to a reader, some individual who will benefit from the information contained in the book. Apparently my publisher now believes that when I write a book, my goal is to fine tune the information for something called SEO.

Finding Mr. Good-Notepad

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

I really liked the AK Notepad. It was a good app, an original Android app, widely-available, and for a while it offered online synchronization of your notes. Now that AK Notepad has been retired, I’ve found and can recommend an Android notepad replacement.

Wambooli Black Friday Shopping 2013

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:00 am

I had originally written a long blog post for today, Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year. The post listed links to several electronic goodies you could buy this holiday season. I just erased the whole thing.

Tablets Rule

Filed under: News — admin @ 9:13 am

If technology sales were to look like a delicious pie, then the slice taken by tablets would be pretty much half the pie. Sales of notebooks (laptops) is a third. And the rest, which is about 17 percent, goes to desktop computers.

The tablet revolution is well underway.
