Bargain Hunting…

A friend of mine sent me several great bargain hunting sites for posting on the blog to share with you: Dealigg – a social bargain hunting web site.  Pay special attention to the “freebies” section on the site.  Enjoy free after mail-in rebate deals and freebies (usually with free shipping).  A link to the Dealigg...

Touch up those photos…

If you are into digital photography, I am sure there has been those occasions where you wished you could edit or change the effects of your photos.  Most image editing software packages that ship with the digital cameras, in my opinion, are easy to get lost in and the user loses interest very quickly.  Look...

Our keys are not even safe…

You will often see articles on the blog, or references to other sites, about software vulnerabilities, internet security issues, information and privacy concerns; BUT I never dreamed I would be writing about your keys and how vulnerable they could be, if left out in open view.  Yes, I am referring to your house keys, car...

Cleaning your LCD Monitor…

Today, for whatever reason, I noticed that my flat-panel LCD monitor (LCD – Liquid Crystal Display) had a smudge on it and was yelling “Clean Me”… Most of the time when we decide to clean the monitor it is at a time when we are not really prepared to do it.  We’re sitting there and...

Free Shipping…

You can really get great deals by using the power of the internet.  One thing that I look for when making price comparisons is whether there is free shipping.  A site that I visit as a shopping launching point is called “FREESHIPPING.ORG”.  It is a collection of coupons and coupon code offerings (for FREE shipping)...

What digital camera should you buy?

I came across an article today, “General Advice for Purchasing a Digital Camera” (by TechPaul – Tech-for Everyone) that caught my attention.  I love digital cameras; however, I am an amateur photographer at heart.   I have owned quite a few cameras over the years and I have found that they keep getting better and cheaper. ...

Live Mesh…

As an addendum to the recent blog post on Windows Live, there is another “Windows Live” service, that is in “beta” like many of the others; BUT is not widely known.  It is called “Live Mesh” … Best description of what “Live Mesh” is, I quoted from the web site: “With Live Mesh, you can...

“WOT” is NEW…

Recently I posted an article “WOT to trust; WOT not to trust…” which highlighted the “FREE” internet security addon for your browser called WOT (Web of Trust).  WOT is a FREE downloadable browser add-on for Internet Explorer and Firefox that will warn you when you are about to interact with a risky web site.  If...

Windows Live…

I’ve recently did a post about "Blogging with Microsoft Word 2007..." Following that post, a fellow blogger whom I’ve come to know at “Tech-for Everyone” told me to give Window’s Live Writer a try to edit and post my blog articles…  I did and there has been no going back.  The Window’s Live Writer (by Microsoft)...

Too many software updates???

Maintaining software updates can be a cumbersome task that I find most users do not do.  There is a solution available that can assist you with this task. It is a “FREE” program called UpdateStar that lets you stay up-to-date and secure with the personal software installations on your computer.  According to the web site,... Continue Reading →

Threat Analysis of Security Related Risks…

Have you ever wondered where the security threats (such as viruses, worms, trojans, adware, spyware, etc.), we are exposed to, are being generated from?  I recently visited a site called ThreatExpert that specializes in the analysis of computer security related risks and how those threats are distirbuted; and from what origin (Country).  As of the date...

USB Extension Cable…

If you are someone that uses a USB flash drive on a regular basis, like I do, I highly recommend that you purchase a USB extension cable.  The extension cable makes it much easier to plug in your flash drive; plus, it prevents wear and tear on your computer's USB port(s).  I have the “male”...
