Overseas Power

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

When traveling abroad, you can sate your need for power not with an aircraft carrier, but with a simple piece of plastic called a power adapter.

Google Knows Your Wi-Fi Password

Filed under: News — admin @ 11:03 am

Okay: Panic.

If you use an Android device, then odds are really good that any Wi-Fi password you’ve ever entered has been saved to Google’s servers. There is nothing to prevent Google from accessing that information.

The Back Up My Settings command (or Backup my Data), found in the Settings app, copies not only options, settings, apps, and accounts, but also passwords. In fact, if you use Chrome, any account passwords saved by the browser are probably also backed up and available on Google’s servers.

Is this a security breech? Probably. No one will know unless some of the Bad Guys hack into Google’s servers to steal all that information.

I’m not particularly worried at this point. Making Google aware of how uncomfortable you are with this arrangement would probably help lead to some sort or acceptable solution.

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

I have no idea what got into me, but about 14 years ago I decided my office needed its own webcam. Back then, it was a fad.

Market to Apple’s New iPhone: Pffft

Filed under: News — admin @ 7:27 am

Apple stock is down over 2 percent this morning, one day after two new iPhone flavors were released. Apparently Wall Street is unimpressed with Apple’s latest efforts. This stock deflation (Pffft) is entirely predictable.

Where’s the big format iPhone?

Where’s the “cheap” iPhone?

Come on, Apple! Where is your innovative spirit? Where is the “think differently”?

I certainly hope that the fruit company has something truly exciting in the works. Supposedly, Steve Jobs was working on The Next Big thing right before he passed. I remember reading, “It’s going to be awesome!” Steve was known for such bold moves, and many times they paid off.

Apple: Do something. Make my life more interesting. Now.

Thank you.

Watermark Me

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

I see a lot of documents where the watermark feature is used. Mostly it displays the text “Draft” diagonally on the background of every page. That trick’s pretty easy to figure out, but it’s not the limit of what you can do with Word’s watermark feature.

Fascinating Spam

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

As Email is entering it’s fifth decade, I’ve noticed that the quantity of spam reaching my inbox has dramatically declined. Not only that, the spam is becoming far more interesting.

What to do With Your Old Phone

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

You did it. You finally got rid of that old clunker. It was the “phone you hate.” And now, after suffering through the ordeal of waiting until the magic day the upgrade kicked in, paying for the new device, and questioning that deceptive $30 transfer fee, you have a wonderful new smartphone. Indeed, you are smart. But what about that old phone?

New Android to be Named Kitkat

Filed under: News — admin @ 8:34 am

Yes, Android 4.4 will be named after the chocolate bar, not “Key Lime Pie,” which is what everyone in the universe was supposing. Silly Apple-esque spoof video shown below:

Manage Your Passwords

Oh, please: Don’t tell me that you’re enough of a sucker to use the same password on all your accounts: PC, Email, all those web sites. Please don’t tell me that’s true!
