Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

So apparently they have these web sites you can visit where guys post pictures of naked girls. On some of these sites, the guys are just regular Joes who happen to have nekkid pictures of their girlfriends, their former girlfriends.

Think You’re Walking Undetected Through The Mall?

Filed under: News — admin @ 1:50 pm

Think again!

Apparently retailers at shopping malls, and probably in those Big Box stores as well, are snooping out smartphones with their Wi-Fi routers. They’re logging the MAC addresses of those cell phones, and maybe even tracking your movements through the store.

Are you creeped out yet?


Your 3D Printer

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

Back in the old microcomputing era, a printer was an expensive peripheral. It was often one of the last things you purchased for a computer. Today printers are par for the course. But 3D printers?

More evidence that the world’s consumers are switching to tablets and smartphones to replace their aging computers: Global PC sales declined nearly 5 precent last quarter. Yikes!

Fake AutoText in Word 2007, 2010, and 2013

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

Microsoft trained everyone to love AutoText from Word zero through Word 2003. Then that happy feature was abused in Word 2007, mugged in Word 2010, and stands for execution in the up-coming Word 2013. What’s an Autotext lover to do?

Blast From the Keyboard Past

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

The original IBM PC keyboard was a poor cousin to today’s monster, aircraft carrier-sized keyboards. The pitiful thing had only 83 keys. That seems like way too many, but keep in mind that the typical HDTV remote has about 90 buttons. It puts things in perspective.

Apple Below 500

Filed under: News — admin @ 11:47 am

It finally happened! Apple sank below 500/share, as I predicted a while back on this blog. I’m not thrilled with it, being a long-term stockholder.

Key word: innovative. We’ll see.

Copy-paste. Cut-paste. It’s all basic computer stuff, nothing I need to explain. That is, unless you want to know where the copied or cut item went. Yeah, you probably know it’s “the clipboard,” but what is that? Where is it? On your Android mobile device, I don’t have a good answer, but I do have clipboard suggestions.
