Chrome will now warn you if your password’s been stolen as soon as you type it in | Mashable

Within the next few weeks, Chrome will roll out a feature that lets you know immediately with a pop-up if you enter a password that’s been compromised somewhere, and prompts you to change it everywhere you use it. (Yes, they see you reusing passwords across different sites even though we all know it’s data hygiene 101 to never do that.)

Have you been pwned? Almost certainly.

Google Calendar (finally) lets users reassign events to other calendars – Android Community

While Google Calendar is probably one of the favorite productivity apps of a lot of users, the mobile version is not as robust as its desktop counterpart. One of the things missing was the ability to move events from one calendar to the other. It looks like Google is finally adding that minor but important feature as a server-side switch is giving selected users the ability to do that.

Please don’t buy this: smart doorbells | Malwarebytes Labs

To start, some of the more popular smart doorbell products have suffered severe cybersecurity vulnerabilities, while others lacked basic functionality upon launch. Worse, the data privacy practices at one major smart doorbell maker resulted in wanton employee access to users’ neighborhood videos. Finally, partnerships between hundreds of police departments and one smart doorbell maker have created a world in which police can make broad, multi-home requests for user videos without needing to show evidence of a crime.

China to ditch all Windows PCs by 2022 – could this be Linux’s time to shine? | TechRadar

In a major blow to Microsoft, the Chinese government will be replacing all PCs that run Windows by 2022, and could instead use a Chinese-created Linux distro, such as Kylin Linux.

The order comes from the Chinese Communist Party Central Office, and is part of a drive to replace any computer that runs non-Chinese software, partly in response to the US government’s blacklisting of Chinese hardware.

Today at “What’s On My PC” – Using Google Tasks

Today’s Thoughts From Rick – “Using Google Tasks”:

All of us have busy lives and keeping it all organized is a task. One of the ways that I manage the components in my life is with Google Tasks. Folks that have used Google Tasks in the past may remember it as a minuscule application that was not really up to speed in comparison to other similar apps. Now that Google has made improvements to this application, it has become my main “to do” application. Google Tasks ties in nicely with Gmail where you will see it on the panel to the right. There is now a dedicated “Google Tasks” app in the Google Play Store. Google has not provided a “standalone” version of Google Tasks that can be opened up in your browser, that I know of, but there are a couple workarounds. The first workaround that has worked for me was using the following web address:

https://tasks.google.com/embed/list/

The second workaround is the new “third party” Chrome browser extension called “Full Screen for Google Tasks” that works quite nicely. All-In-All Google Tasks has matured and maybe something that you may want to take a look at to get organization your life.

Today at “What’s On My PC” – This Smartphone Pedometer Will Help You Lose Weight

Today’s Thoughts From Rick – “This Smartphone Pedometer Will Help You Lose Weight”:

For the first time in my life I am actually focused on good eating habits (portion control) and exercising (walking) and it is working. One thing that is helping me, is a smartphone pedometer app, called “Pedometer – Step Counter Free & Calorie Burner“. There are many pedometer app selections at Google Play, but there is one app that I found that does not use a GPS Tracker (which will save you battery life) and is downright accurate. One feature that I really like is a widget that you can place on your screen to see how many steps you are taking in a day’s time. In my case, it is on my home screen, as a visual motivator, where I can easily see my step count during the day. All the features in this app are 100% free, but you may see that occasional popup ad. Also, no sign-in is required. Just install and start walking. Walking is one of the best exercises you can do…

Vladmir Putin is extricating Russia from the world-wide-web | TNW

Truth of the matter is that his “wall” will serve only to isolate the people of Russia from the world. Putin will have an “off” switch if an election doesn’t go his way or a foreign press publishes some dirt he doesn’t like.

December 1, 2019


Today’s Thoughts From Rick –Get The Comics Daily at GoComics

A fond memory of mine, growing up, was getting the Sunday paper and taking out the section that contained the comics. Unlike today, back then the news really meant nothing to me; I just wanted the comics section. Today, I use an RSS Feed Reader (Inoreader) as my own customized type of newspaper and I needed a way to get that “comic’s fix” through an RSS feed. What I found was a website called GoComics that met that criteria. GoComics.com is the web’s largest catalog of syndicated newspaper strips, political cartoons, and webcomics, offering free new content every day. Iconic cartoons include Peanuts, Calvin and Hobbes, Garfield, Ziggy, Dilbert and more… So, if you like reading comics, check out GoComics.

Today at “What’s On My PC” – Two Multi-Tools Priced Just Right For Everyday Carry (EDC)

November 30, 2019


Today’s Thoughts From Rick – “Two Multi-Tools Priced Just Right For Every Day Carry (EDC)”

One of my “likes” in life are multi-tools. You know, those tools that consist of multiple implements that open up into pliers. As a tech type person, who is a multi-tasker, I have to have a tool in my pocket that is a symbol of what I am about. In my case, that tool has to be able to perform tasks that a normal size tool would perform; must fit comfortably in my pocket (or in a sheath); must be of good build and reputation; and, must be at a cost point level that it can reasonably be replaced if lost. To keep this post short, I will jump right in and point you to the Gerber Suspension NXT and the Leatherman Wingman that meet the criteria I have reflected. You can do a Google or YouTube search on both to get a good hold on what people like or dislike; but, to go right to the point, I own both of them. Between the two, I like the Gerber Suspension the best due that all of the implements are on the exterior side of the tool and all of the implements lock into place. The Leatherman Wingman, I especially like the scissors and the box/package cutter over the Suspension. Both of these tools are not “top of the line” in their product categories; but, they are made by top-level manufacturers (Leatherman and Gerber); are specifically made with belt-clips for EDC (Every Day Carry); and, are reasonably priced (click on links below for quick review and pricing). You will not go wrong with either of these tools…

Today at “What’s On My PC” – Used My Smartphone To Remotely Monitor A Generator During A Power Outage

November 29, 2019


Today’s Thoughts From Rick – “Used My Smartphone To Remotely Monitor A Generator During A Power Outage”:

There are so many things that you can use your Smartphone for that you probably are not even aware of. During a power outage yesterday (Thanksgiving) my past skills from yesteryear in emergency management (with the State of MD) kicked into gear.  At a very rural location where the internet only exists with satellite, cell phone coverage is next to non-existent, and a generator is required during outages; I was able to remotely monitor, from my smartphone, the operation of the generator (kudos to Kohler) in real-time; monitor the precise location where the outage (power lines down) occurred and the status of the repairs (kudos to PE-First Energy); and, communicate by email with a family member at that location. In the end, after a 10-hour outage, we met with the family member, performed a post-assessment of the event, and then had our Thanksgiving dinner.

Folks, as we continue to dive into smart devices and AI (artificial intelligence); learn to use the technology that is available through these devices to improve your quality of life and make yourself and others safer. At the same time, always have a contingency plan in place if these devices fail.

Today at “What’s On My PC” – A Tip When Moving Photos From Google Drive to Google Photos

Today’s Thoughts From Rick – “A Tip When Moving Photos From Google Drive to Google Photos”:

Back in July (2019), Google made a change that has had an impact on many of us and how we store our photos. Prior to that date, you could save your photos to Google Drive and they would show up in Google Photos. After that date, any photos you saved in Google Drive “will not” show up in Google Photos. In essence, Google separated the two services. In the present, if you have photos to upload, upload them directly to Google Photos. The dilemma for many folks, including me, is that I had thousands of photos in Google Drive that I need to transfer or move to Google Photos. Google did provide an avenue to do this in Google Photos. If you go to Google Photos, you will see an upload option and under that option, you now see “Google Drive” and “Computer”.

If you select “Google Drive” you will be taken to “Google Drive” where you can select the photos you desire to upload. This is where the fun begins. Google did not provide an easy way to do this which has me wondering if they wanted you to upload the photos, to begin with (???).

A tip I want to try to explain is this: Typically in a file folder (on a computer), if you select “CTRL-A” in combo on your keyboard, you can select all the files. This does not work in Google Drive where photos are concerned. It only allows you to select the first 50, which is not helpful at all when you have thousands of photos. To get around this, what I found is that, if you hold down the “Shift Key”, select the first photo, let up on the “Shift Key”, scroll to the very last photo, hold down the “Shift Key” again and select the last photo; this will select all of the photos. Even this process is not a quick process and you have to be patient for all of the photos to be selected. Another option is to hold down the “Shift Key”, select the first photo, and while holding the “Shift Key”, scroll to the last photo. As you are holding down the “Shift Key” and scrolling, you will see a count on how many photos are being selected. When done either of the processes as I have stated, click on “Upload” and you will see a dialog box showing the photos being uploaded to the Google Photos. It took me a couple of times to practice this, but it does work.

Tell me why Google did not have an option where you could “select all” photos is beyond me. My goal is to move all my photos from Google Drive to Google Photos to reclaim space on Google Drive. It is my understanding, those photos on Google Drive are now being counted toward space being used if they are left there. If you know of a better way of doing all of this, I welcome the solution(s).

Today at “What’s On My PC” – How to get to the Gboard settings on Android

November 24, 2019


Today’s Thoughts From Rick (How to get to the Gboard settings on Android):

As I continue down that path of the Android OS on my smartphone, I am continually finding new features, etc… that typically are not evident to the naked eye. Most folks will never go beyond what they are seeing. An area that I struggled with (and have no idea why) was trying to locate the settings on Gboard. Gboard is typically the keyboard that is installed on many Android phones (by default) and is a keyboard app developed by Google. I actually like it; especially, after I figured out how to get to the Gboard settings (where I can install themes, change the size of the keyboard, etc…). After I did figure this out I became curious and wanted to know if Google has a Gboard support site (???) and they do (click here); AND, from that support site here are the steps to get into the Gboard settings after you have the keyboard opened up on your phone:

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open any app that you can type with, like Gmail or Keep.
  2. Tap where you can enter text.
  3. At the top left of the keyboard, tap Open features menu Open features menu.
  4. Tap More More and then Settings Settings.
  5. Choose which settings to turn on, like Glide typingText correction, and Voice typing.

Today at “What’s On My PC” – Windows 7 Support Ends On January 14, 2020 – What should I do?

November 23, 2019


Today’s Thoughts From Rick (Windows 7 Support Ends On January 14, 2020 – What should I do?)

I have been receiving calls from folks that have Windows 7 based computers at home that they are now receiving a Windows 7 EOL (end-of-life) message from Microsoft, on their computer screen, advising them to either upgrade to Windows 10 or buy a new computer. Windows 7 is due to reach EOL on 14 January 2020. What that means is that the computer and Windows 7 will continue to run as it always has; BUT, you will receive no more bug-fixes, security patches or new functionality support, leaving you significantly more susceptible to malware attacks. Windows 7 is probably the best OS that Microsoft ever built, but it is time to send Windows 7 to the afterlife. For you folks at home, either upgrade or consider buying a new computer. If you decide to upgrade and need a starting point for this – CLICK HERE. Just make sure you have a migration plan, that you backup your personal files and make sure that your computer hardware can handle Windows 10. If you want a starting point to buy a new PC – CLICK HERE.

Today at What’s On My PC – Google is retiring “cloud print” in 2020

November 22, 2019


Today’s Thoughts From Rick (Google is retiring “cloud print” in 2020): 

Do you use Google’s “Cloud Print” service that allows you to print a document to your printer from anywhere on the internet from any device?  I do; AND, get this, Google is dumping the widely used service at the end of 2020. Google announced that Cloud Print has been in beta since 2010 and it will no longer be supported as of December 31, 2020. They are recommending that users migrate to other options. Maybe it is time for “Cloud Print” to go away; but, Google has a running history of dumping services they create and this announcement just added to my “do not trust Google list”.

Today’s “How To” Pick:

How Do I Reformat and Reinstall Windows?
by Leo A. Notenboom

Reformatting a machine and reinstalling everything to start over is typically a five-step process.

  1. Back Up

    Take an image of the existing machine, if possible. This saves all current content in case you want it later.

  2. Reformat the hard disk

    While “reformatting” refers to a specific operation, in this situation, it refers to any technique used to erase or overwrite everything on the hard disk.

  3. Reinstall Windows from scratch

    This typically means booting from a Windows setup disk and letting the setup program do its thing.

  4. Reinstall applications

    Windows on its own isn’t enough; you’ll want to reinstall additional software. We won’t cover that step here, since it varies dramatically depending on what applications you use.

  5. Recover your data

    You can do this either from the backup image we started with in Step 1, or from other sources, depending on how you organize your data.

Today at What’s On My PC – “Following The News”

November 21, 2019


Today’s Thoughts From Rick (Following The News): 

As I have gotten older I have become more focused on politics and the news. I observed the same thing occur with my Parents and Grandparents. Today, unlike their generation, we can get the news from a buffet of news sources from around the world. One thing I highly recommend to people is to get the news from multiple sources and do not focus on any single news source. In my case, I use two software tools to do this and both are FREE. The first tool is an RSS reader, which is web-based, called Feedreader. This application has been around for a long time, has no limits on the number of feeds you add, and is very simplistic in nature. The second tool is an app for your smartphone, called Smartnews, that can be acquired from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Both of these tools allow you to quickly pull in news, as well as many other topics, from multiple sources.

Installing a Google Docs add-on is simple; you click the ‘Free’ button if the add-on is free, or you buy it. Once you do that, it will install. The add-on will need certain permissions to work, and it will ask you to sign in with your Google account.

Today at What’s On My PC – RVing In Fringe Cell Reception Areas

November 20, 2019


Today’s Thoughts From Rick (RVing In Fringe Cell Reception Areas):

I just got back from camping in my RV where cell phone reception is (was) near non-existent. If you notice, I used the term “was”. Approximately 1 1/2 years ago I purchased a 3G/4G cell phone booster from Amazon (SolidRF SOHO4G Cell Phone Signal Booster). This particular booster has worked well for me by boosting that near “non-existent” signal to the point that I can easily make phone calls, browse the internet, and stream data (i.e. online TV, Youtube, etc…). Without getting into great detail, if you are in an area where there is a weak signal, these boosters will work. In my case, the signal was so weak, I could not make any calls (no bars); however, occasionally I would briefly get intermittent weak signals. Just make sure you do your homework and make sure the booster you buy is compatible with your cell phone service provider. SolidRF is a good choice, as well as weBoost.

Today at What’s On My PC – Using A Dedicated Gmail Account for Note-Keeping

November 18, 2019


Today’s Thoughts From Rick (Using A Dedicated Gmail Account for Note-Keeping):

The past several days I have been exploring the various note keeping applications and thought I had settled on Microsoft OneNote; then, the light bulb went off. Back in August, I had posted an article I had composed titled, “Quick Tip: How To Turn A Gmail Account Into A Powerful Note-Taking And Note-Keeping App“. Folks, what I posted in that article about using a separate Gmail account (from your normal email account) as a note-keeping and note-taking app really does work. The key is to use this separate account for note and document storage only; not for email. The most important thing in doing this is to use the tagging feature in Gmail to categorize your notes. You can let your imagination fly by using all the powerful features associated with Gmail (especially the search function). In the end, I created a cross-platform note-keeping and note-taking app that works hand in hand with all the Google services, with 15GB of storage; ALL, for FREE.  I even prettied up my creation with a theme (that is already built into the Gmail platform). The real beauty is that I can send anything to this Gmail note-keeping account from my phone, my browser and from my main email.

Today’s Thoughts From Rick:

Yesterday’s post I mentioned I was working with Microsoft OneNote and setting it up as my primary note-keeping application. So far, everything is working as expected; however, one hiccup I did run into was using the app on my Android phone. I loaded one of the OneNote widgets (which gave me a shortcut to directly open a new note) and every time I would tap on the widget to create that new note, I would get the following type of error “please make sure your notebook is synced and default section is set”… I went to the virtual part of my brain, called “Google”, searched for this problem, and the solution is this. In the OneNote app on your phone, do this; -1. Press and hold the section you want to set as default; THEN, 2. Click on Menu (3 vertical dots on top right)> Set as default. This fixed the problem immediately. OneNote is a great (FREE) application; but, Microsoft still has some polishing to do. Do I recommend it? AND, the answer is YES. OneNote is a cross-platform application and if you use the latest version of Windows 10, it is already installed.

Today’s Thoughts From Rick:

How many of you use notetaking or note-keeping software applications? I do and I have worked the circuit with these various applications. Right now, I am back to using Microsoft OneNote, after have not used it for years. I never really took to OneNote due I thought it was sort of slow and slow is not in my makeup. My brother recently swayed me to take a look at it again after telling me how he actively uses it in his workplace. I was actively exploring Google Keep, Zoho Notebook, Simplenote, and Standard Notes. My take so far, after about 24 hours of setting up various notebooks, etc… and installing the app on my other devices, I am going in my head, “hmmm… OneNote has progressed to a point that this may just be the chosen one”.
