Use The Western Digital My Passport Essential SE Series Portable External Hard Drive to Backup Your Files

June 30, 2011

I cannot stress the importance of backing up your personal files (such as your documents, pictures, and videos).  A surefire way to get this done is by purchasing an external hard drive; and, to really make it easy I suggest one of the portable external hard drives that you simply plug in the USB port and start using it. The beauty of the portable external hard drive is that you can easily move it from one PC to another; PLUS, you can then store the drive off site (in the event disaster at home would occur). Many of the portable external hard drives are small enough to easily fit in a briefcase and even your pocket.

A good choice to take a look at is the Western Digital My Passport series of drives (e.g. My Passport Essential SE 1 TB USB 3.0/2.0). The key feature with this drive is that it features dual USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 compatibility. If you are not backing up your files, here is a good way to start. Believe me, I have seen people turn ghost white, cry, yell, and stomp when told there files are gone.

I Did Not Have A Hand In This bing Thing!

June 27, 2011

When you write a blog post or article you hope to get feedback, through the comments section, from your readers. I always make it a practice to respond back, even if it is just to say thank you; however, with anything there are exceptions.

There was one article, back in May of 2009, titled bing – Microsoft’s New Search Engine that went viral with the comments to the point that I stopped responding and I’ll tell you why.

Bing Wallpaper

Following that post, I must have hit pretty high in the Google search page ranking (or bing page ranking) for the article. As a result people must have thought that I had a hand in this bing thing or that I actually developed bing. Following that article I immediately, and still do to this day, received really nasty comments telling me how bing took over their computers and they want me, yes me, to remove it.  Now, there has been a few people who have come to my defense and have pointed out that poor Rick has no play in this. I will usually give them a pat on the back with a response of some type.

I really think Microsoft, who owns and operates bing, should at least compensate me with a prize or something for promoting bing and for ultimately absorbing some of their pains as a result of the promotion.

In the end, I have truly enjoyed the comments and actually look forward to reading them as they continue to trickle in. As a matter of fact to keep it going, I encourage you to visit bing – Microsoft’s New Search Engine and add your comments to what I am now calling the “bing hall of shame”.  Also, as a reward to those you came to my defense, the image reflected above is actually a bing wallpaper for your computer that you can wear proud…

“If I did have a hand in this bing thing,
a poor blogger I would not sing”.
