About Your Evernote Password…

Filed under: News — admin @ 11:10 am

Apparently the database for the popular mobile app Evernote was hacked, granting the Bad Guys access to over 50 million unencrypted passwords. Yikes!

Evernote has apparently reset everyone’s password. I haven’t received a notice yet. I’m only a casual Evernote user, though I know the app is very popular and quite handy.

Beware the In-App Purchases

Filed under: News — admin @ 8:27 am

I don’t know which is worse, the lure of in-app advertising targeted at kids or parents who let their wee tots use electronics without supervision?

Android dictation takes a major leap forward with the Jelly Bean version of the mobile operating system. It’s realtime and almost flawless.

Episodes of a Computer Consultant

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

Way, way back when, when computers were still exciting in the 1980s, I tried my hand at being a computer consultant. I did not like it, not one bit.

Muscle Recognition Control

Interesting development: the MYO Armband, which gives you control over a computer or other device similar to the way Tom Cruise’s character in Minority Report controlled a futuristic computer: Wave your arms around. Pretty cool. I’m not sure whether it’s just for the Mac, though I don’t see how that would last long.


The Power of the ¶

ma02-Show-Hide Whenever I look at a Word document and it’s all screwy, the first thing I want to see is what doesn’t show up on the screen: Those tiny characters that affect the text in strange ways, but which are hidden. Somewhere in that mess is the solution to the formatting problem.

My Android, What Big Text You Have!

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

Where are the huge tablets? Trust me, they’re coming! Tablets may be popular today in the 7- to 10-inch size range, but eventually I see huge tablets appearing on the market. That will be a great choice for people who have trouble seeing a tablet’s tiny text. Until then, you can adjust text size on your tablet to something more readable. It’s cinchy.

The Desktop Screenshot

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

Every so often, I snap a picture of my Windows computer desktop. That may seem weird and dismissible, but I have a valid justification. Not only that, every so often I have to remind myself to do it.
