Three Women were held captive for a decade...check out the audio. Have you ever been shocked to find out about something your neighbors were involved in?
There is website that will make you a key, just by snapping a photo of the key. It cost five dollars(including shipping) and you will have a new key within two days. I can’t see a ton of uses for me personally, but if the only reason I had to run to the store was to get a key made, I’m sure I can justify that after gas and the cost of a new key at a retail location, it’s probably close to the same cost. The website is www.shloosl.com and is just the newest answer to “What’s next????”
Leo Laporte, The Tech Guy explains it best here on his Video. There are ways to remove a virus, but since so many of the new virus’ are attaching themselves to the operating system, removing them can cause Windows to stop functioning correctly. The only absolutely sure way to deal with it is to completely wipe the hard drive and overwrite it, then re-install it on the now blank hard drive. Be careful if you have to back up off the already infected drive, as now you have no way to know if your back up is clean. If you do have to back up some files, try to limit them to the most basic, like some photo’s and documents. That can help reduce the risk of backing up the virus itself.
Below is a dorky video explaining some free software for wiping the hard drive. He recommends Dban (boot and nuke). That will erase (over and over), by writing one’s and zero’s in every spot on the hard drive. This makes it nearly impossible to read after it’s done.
I’ve been texting with Swype for about 6 months now via the beta version. At first, it’s a little slower than regular hunt and peck texting. After a day or so, it becomes so much faster than typing, I’m sure I will never go back. If you text a lot(like my wife) or just a few times a day(like me), I’m sure you’ll be impressed with Swype’s ability to predict what you are typing(swyping). I use another product by the makers of Swype called Dragon Naturally Speaking. I have to say, I think Swype is better at predicting my texting than Dragon is at understanding my dictation(and I do like Dragon). It will set you back .99 cents, but give it one day and you’ll know it was worth much more than that. The following video will show you a few of the great features that Swype has. I still use my Nexus original keyboard, with Swype enabled typing, but you may like one of Swype’s keyboards better. You can get it HERE on Google Play.
I’ve used Fiverr.com in the past to get some work done for an App. I built and to order various drawings for ideas I wanted an artist rendition on. This video from InternetGeeks.org explains it fast and simple. Then, go check it out yourself. I think you’ll be amazed what five bucks can get you. You may even decide you want to make some cash on the side and sell something on your own.
