    What is your household's IT device count?

    We have 2 iPhones, 2 iPads, two laptops, 1 Netbook (i.e.: mini laptop) two desktops, a 1 terrabyte external drive and a 3 terrabyte external drive. Also somewhere around 6 or 8 internal hard drives harvested from scrapped computers. I scrapped two desktops and three dead laptops a few weeks...

    Interesting iTunes discovery

    Not to long ago my son's laptop died. He also has an iPhone and had iTunes installed on the laptop. I removed the hard drive from the dead laptop and copied all of the data to an external USB drive that I use for backups. My desktop then crashed and I replaced it with a new one. The...

    Setting iPad 2 for the Better Half

    Since I now have an iPad Pad Air 2 I'd like to pass my iPad 2 over the the better half. My challenge is that she currently has an iPhone 4 and very rarely (if ever) connects it to iTunes to do updates or backups. I'm sure the iPad 2 would be the same unless she lets the Grandkids kill it like...

    How to change a bad wall dimmer switch.

    I had a dimmer switch going bad (over heating) and had a replacement in hand. Only issue was identifying which circuit breaker controlled it. I had my choice of 28 circuit breakers (poorly labeled by the homes previous owner) as to which one controlled the wall switch. Since I was the only...

    LinkedIn app crashes

    Anyone else seeing this? The street scene comes up, it hangs for 15 to 20 seconds (during which the iPad will not accept any input) then the app closes completely. Opening it a second time normally works after the 10 - 15 seconds wait on the opening screen. Resetting the iPad seems to make no...

    Looking for a photo / graphics editing application

    I do graphics for vehicles, signs, banners etc as a sideline. What I'm looking for is a graphics package that would let me take photos of a vehicle in the field and then add text using different colors, fonts and effects. Being able to cut and paste from other photos/graphics would also be a...

    Interesting "Find my idevice"

    Most times when I activate the "Find my Iphone/iPad" application it will show my iPhone about 30 miles east of my current location and my iPad within a 100 yards or so. After 5 or so minutes the iPhone comes back home sitting next to the iPad. I normally don't have it on since it seems to...
