Today’s Geek Squeaks – September 11, 2013

September 11, 2013

A summary of Today’s Geek Squeaks:

Squeak #1: Uninstalling security software should be straightforward, but it is not. Norton products are no exception. If you have a Norton product on your PC and you desire to uninstall it, make sure you download the Norton Removal Tool (see below);

Squeak #2: I came across some very good tips on what to look for when hiring a computer tech (see below);

Squeak #3: I have to let you know about this if you are an iPhone owner. Apple is releasing the NEW Apple iPhone 5S and 5C.  Difference between the two is that one built better and more expensive than the other. I found where the cheap one is still pretty expensive if you buy it unlocked (see below); AND,

Squeak #4: Nexus 4 is Google’s flagship smartphone. If you own one of these, I strongly suggest you protect your investment with one of these cases (see below);

Today’s Geek Squeaks – August 8, 2013

August 8, 2013

A summary of Today’s Geek Squeaks‘:

  • Looking for an alternative to Adobe PDF? Give Foxit PDF a try. Available as a portable app;
  • A question that is often asked of me, is “Should I upgrade to Windows 8?”.  I found an answer to that question that mirrors my thoughts on this;
  • I know for fact, we do not take password protection seriously and open ourselves up to potential compromise of our data. Very cool infographic on this very topic at Mashable; AND,
  • Protect your iPhone investment with a cover that encloses the phone and protects it from an accident (which will eventually happen).

Make Your Own Ringtones For Your iPhone (or Any Mobile Phone)

May 14, 2013

I recently had a friend who was looking for a method to create a personalized ringtone for their iPhone. What I found, that is quite easy to use, is an online application called Online Audio Cutter.

Online Audio Cutter

Online Audio Cutter is specifically geared toward cutting out sound segments from just about any audio or video format that you throw at it (see supported formats). The best part is that there is nothing to install. Simply visit the site, click on the Open File button (to select a file from your computer), select the interval you want to cut by moving the blue sliders, choose a format you wish to save a file in (the default format is MP3), click the Cut button, then click Download to save your computer.

During this process you will find that there is even a fade-in and fade-out function that will start your clipped file from silence and gradually make it louder; AND, also during this process when selecting the desired format, you will see an option specifically for the iPhone ringtone format.

Below you will find links on creating a ringtone (for your iPhone), transferring the file to your iPhone and even instructions on how to change the iPhone ringtone

In closing, one thing to point out here is that Online Audio Cutter can also be used to create ringtones for any mobile phone (not just the iPhone).

Discover Breaking News As Soon As It Breaks

April 15, 2013

Another sad day in the United States. Two bombs exploded in the crowded streets near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, killing three people and injuring more than 130 in a bloody scene of shattered glass and severed limbs that raised alarms that terrorists might have struck again in the U.S. – Source (AP)

I started thinking is there a service out there that can provide us with breaking news as it happens and push it out there to our computers, smartphones and tablets? Sadly, in today’s world, getting the news as fast as you can is important toward maintaining one’s safety.

The service I came across that pushes the biggest breaking stories as they happen, 24 hours a day, is called just that, Breaking News.

Breaking News App

Breaking News is part of the of the NBC News Digital Network; however, the service is a fully independent, agnostic news organization that brings you the biggest stories as they happen, 24 hours a day, from more than a 160 news and eyewitness sources across the globe. Breaking News also is available as an app that will work off of the Android, Kindle Fire, iPad, iPhone, Windows Phone, Windows 8 and Samsung Smart TV platforms.

Going back to this tragic event, my heart goes out to anyone that was a victim of this senseless act and I pray that the people of this country, who feel there is division, show the world that we are truly one nation under God that can come together in time of need.
