Social networking has become one of the most popular ways for people to stay in touch with friends and family. It is possible for everyone to send messages, chat, share photos and videos with the help of the features on these websites. As accessibility has become easier than ever before, the threat to misuse these platforms has also risen more than before. Continue reading “6 Tips For Social Networking Safety” »

There are several places on the internet where you can watch your favorite television shows for free or for a small monthly fee. While you will not be able to access all of your favorite shows on the PC, there is a good chance that a vast majority of them will be available.

I admit, I use a lot of bandwidth every month, which I’m sure my Internet Service Provider (ISP) is very aware of. I don’t have cable, so I use torrent programs, stream media, Skype, game, and use other services quite often. And you know what? I don’t care, since it’s what I pay for. Even if I use more data than most people in my town, does that mean I should automatically have to pay more than everyone else?
Maybe I should admit yes, but that will never come from my mouth. I am not stupid, and most of you should know that once you give some companies – especially big biz and corporations – unregulated power, they’ll exploit their customers any way they can. We’ve seen it happen with cell phones, most notably AT&T, and that is already happening with Internet.
If you are running into trouble with your Avaya technology, chances are you want some help troubleshooting the equipment. There is nothing more frustrating than not knowing exactly how to correct an issue with your hardware. Chances are you’ve been in a situation where no matter what you do with the system, it just comes up with dead end after dead end and you start looking for free Avaya support. Yes it’s free – there is no need to pay for the support, as there are different options available to you. So, instead of going out and paying a professional to come out and look at your hardware, you just need to look over the different free support services and see if you can find an answer to your question.
As Apple continues to release new operating systems, one may start to wonder, “Aren’t they going to run out of big cats to name them after?” Not yet. They got pretty clever on the last release. Since they had created an upgrade from OS X Lion, they decided to call the new release OS X Mountain Lion. Why? It still gives you everything Lion did: same beautifully simple layout and functionality, along with all the features you love that make a Mac super user friendly. But there are some major differences. Still a lion, but this time, it’s a bit of a different breed.
There is a rapidly growing field called home automation that has numerous benefits for people wishing to conserve Earth’s natural resources. Home automation technology first came about in 1975 with a product called X10, which allowed compatible devices to communicate over existing electrical wires.

Actually, with this device, thumbs will no longer be involved. No more manual texting, just voice and some minor index finger button pushing. At least, that’s what Google is going for. We all know that when the latest products come out, there are bound to be bugs and technical issues. But what if this is the beginning of a new era of technology, where technology alters your daily life in a totally new way. Imagine seeing information, reminders, maps, text messages and video chats right before your eyes, integrated into your view of your every day life. Google augmented reality glasses make this all possible.
Even though there are other cool features, such a the ability to snap a photo with a simple voice command, ask to find the location of a friend or request an alternate walking route, it seems that, after some time, some of the features could get potentially annoying. I’d imagine it would be easy to get to the point where you don’t want to see reminders for every task you’ve got scheduled in your calendar. It’s called procrastination and it’s perfectly alright sometimes, right?
In my post about data recovery I mentioned that the fastest way to boost your Technorati authority and get high ranking inbound links is to find blogs that have high PR and low Top Commentators and comment regularly on their site.
There are literally thousands of sites out there that fit this criteria and in all honesty it’s not worth the trouble to keep these dynamic links up if this is your main source of inbound links. However, this is a very quick way to boost your link very fast on any blog. I was able to pump this blog from 0 to 20 high PR links within 3 days. My friend, who had more initiative went from 0 to a whopping 100+ in a week. I wouldn’t recommend this unless you have a lot of time on your hands and want to comment yourself to death in the future to keep up the links. Continue reading “Page Ranking Sites To Look At” »
A while back, Forbes was collecting letters so you could send “an email time capsule” to yourself in the future. The idea was that you could send an email to yourself to arrive in either 1, 3, 5, 10, or 20 years time. Although their experiment has long been closed, there still are sites that allow you to send these types of emails. Continue reading “8 Email Suggestions To Send To Your Future Self” »
I have been battling for quite some time with constantly running out of RAM on my MacBook Pro. Whilst I have 4GB of RAM – it’s just never enough (8GB upgrade going to be happening on my upcoming US trip methinks!).
However, I got tipped over the edge whilst trying to do some work today and decided to look for a quick fix. One of the suggestions I saw was to boot my OS into 64 bit mode. Given one of the key features of Snow Leopard Technology is the fact that it’s built as 64 bit from the ground up, it always puzzled me that they didn’t enable a 64 bit kernel by default. Of course, the reason behind this is to try and increase compatibility with non 64 bit hardware etc, but it still is a pain.
In order to enable a 64 bit kernel, you can approach this a few ways. The quickest and easiest way is to hold down the 6 and 4 keys just after you power up your Mac. This will boot you into 64 bit mode for that session only (ie. next time you reboot you will be back to 32 bit mode).
