    Just How Safe is Free WiFi at Mickey D's or Local Coffee Shop ??

    Bob's Number One Rule: Assume every free WiFi hotspot is not secure. Avoid bank transactions and other things like that. Assume that your whatever will be whatevered and let that be your guide.

    why is the ipad air cheaper in China?

    First, Bob is back. Yeah, Go Bob go. To answer your query, it has to do with the declining Yen vs. the proportionate diversionary funding of third world second tier bank debt, vs. the rise in the Euro plus the cost of the yen at its lowest third quarter level, minus the tertiary levels of the...

    OK, I am back. Been gone, but here I be. There is nothing to see here, so just move along. I will be watching all of you. I have little to say, so no queries. bob

    New York Class Teaches Dogs to Use iPads and Take “Selfiesâ€!

    Good idea. I am teaching cadavers how to do needlepoint and drive a stick. Perhaps a dog that knows how to surf the web can be handy.

    New study: iPad use might make children inarticulate

    Most certainly, a valid point. It is not just tablets and phones, but TV, X-Box and the home PC. We are becoming lazy, but that is not the kid's fault. The media has us looking for bad people around every corner. We cannot let the little monsters be little monsters at Halloween, and the...

    Tennessee lawyer sues Apple for getting him hooked on porn

    I changed my mind. I want more porn. Not the hard core stuff, but wimmen showing their ankles, really does it for me. And for God's sake, when they remake "I Love Lucy" can't they push the beds together? We all know what happens when the lights go out, anyway. Wink wink nudge nudge. Ricky...

    Tennessee lawyer sues Apple for getting him hooked on porn

    Dell is next. No, I mean the Think Pady guys. And those pesky Android fones with web access. The library must go, too. Yup, you read it here first . . . unrestricted access to porn and We The People pay for it. I rather like Rubenesque wimmen myself, so I hate to see them go. Since...

    In May, the iPad accounted for 82.4% of the U.S. tablet traffic

    When you have been around the Tech block a few decades, you will learn that something out of left field suddenly becomes hot and no tech company is forever. No telling what Cook will do to the company and there is no guarantee Apple will rule the roost until the end of time. there are always a...

    In May, the iPad accounted for 82.4% of the U.S. tablet traffic

    I am not so sure they blew it. We love iPads and many here have never lived with a Surface long enough to say if it is good or bad. W8 is what it is and it is different. No problem learning and the Surface has much to reccomend it. Like no need to JB the thing. Rather, Root it. And I can run...

    Charge your iPad at newly installed solar-powered charging stations in New York

    LOL . . . "While I was charging my iPad at a newly installed solar-powered charging station in New York, someone stole my iDevice." Is that the next headline?

    The "Useless Information" Thread

    AND . . . It scared my parents. I remember the great Elvis meltdown of '62. All that gyrating hip movement and dancing in jail. Drove granny nuts, too. Drove mom nuts, too. Dad loved Elvis, so he was controllable. We also had the 1910 Fruitgum Company, One Man Bands, and AM radio. All the...

    Dreams

    I love nightmares because they provide a needed respite from my waking moments. The scary part is in knowing that my reality is far more scary than the dream. Come live in my head for a month and you will long for a restful nightmare or two. (Scroll down) BOO!

    Microsoft takes on iPad with a new Windows ad

    You forgot the two guys in a garage and their OS. As with all tech, some pair of fellas in a garage will build a better product. This is the way of the (tech) world.

    Microsoft takes on iPad with a new Windows ad

    you do have brand loyalty and it comes from advertising. We ALL have some loyalty to one thing or another; it is unavoidable. Sometimes it is based on emotions and sometimes, demonstrable goodless and clearly superior products. Are you on other forums or just this one?

    Microsoft takes on iPad with a new Windows ad

    Is this a Microsoft ad or a DELL ad? Clarify if possible. the title of this thread is misleading if this is an ad paid for by Dell. Apple, Dell, MS and the rest want to sell product and their ads will try to do whatever it takes. Nothing new here.

    Time to rant.... ZAGG sheild.... UGH!

    My guess is a little time spent with a buffing wheel and some rouge will eliminate scratches.

    Time to rant.... ZAGG sheild.... UGH!

    I know a fellow whio works in the business. He works with micro-encapsulated sticker materials or something like that. I'll put in a request for beef lasagne. Do you want an additional scent of eggplant and wine? That is a buck more per square inch.

    Time to rant.... ZAGG sheild.... UGH!

    I do not use one and so far, my devices have no scratches. My theory is, these shields were designed to solve a non-existant issue and the matrketing folks simply tell us we will be sorry if we do not protect our screens which likely need less protection than we think. The glass is quite good...

    Anyone else HUGELY disgusted by the flat look?

    So, lemmme ax you all, if the first iOS looked flat, would we hate the 3D look? I say yes, yes we would. After all, we have forums to complain to, so yes, we would complain. I say, don't worry, be happy. New Coke disappeared because people screwed with one of the 4 food groups - soft drinks...

    Anyone else HUGELY disgusted by the flat look?

    I surround myself with people who better please me or I'll toss a tantrum, dag nabbit. :mad: But you are correct. And do not forget the iFanboys on both sides of the never ending Apple/Android fight. Nothing will please many so why bother. My guess is Apple is why they have an android phone...

    Anyone else HUGELY disgusted by the flat look?

    Really? No, really, really-dealley really, Oh? The final release will probably be much different than the beta so who knows what will change. No offence, but anyone that turns their back on a device because of the colors and flat icons should never comment about how advanved the iPhone is...

    Anyone else HUGELY disgusted by the flat look?

    Come on guys and dolls . . . give Apple a break. I read about Blackberry and how backwards it is; how near death is is (OK, it could be) and they launch a new phone that is very un-BB like. MS will not change or innovate, many say and they give us the Surface and their phone OS. Some say Apple...

    How Un-Mack Like Mac

    Have you seen the new Mac Pro? Visit Apple and have a look. Machined out of solid aluminum, amazing power, 4K video support, fast wireless, 2 times faster than the current machine and designed/manufacturered here in the U.S. of A. If you are into graphics, let me quote: "Traditionally, pro...

    Dreams

    Being chased (or chasing) is a common dream. My guess is your brain added zombies because they are all the rage. In my day, it was Indians and going back to caveman times, OGG was being chased from his cave by lawyers. My guess it was to serve divorce papers from dragging Wilma by the hair.

    Trooping of the Colour

    Well, we have Justin Bieber, so top that! We invented the Pop Tart, FaceBook, roll-on deoderant, those little packs of sweetner and the space shuttle, so there. If we need to see colors, we have the net that Algore invented. I think we invented the color green, too.

    Time to rant.... ZAGG sheild.... UGH!

    I will soon release my own line of shields and they are scented, too. Make your iDevice smell like a Blackberry or a robot. They are Micro bonded with Titanium based and proprietary "Strong-O-Coating Ultra" that NASA uses on the space shuttle engine nozzles and my shields are not only tear...

    Time to rant.... ZAGG sheild.... UGH!

    Real iPad users don't need no stinkin shield. There, I have said it. No shields. All you do is empower those people trying to sell you a sheet of plastic. Over priced plastic. Shields. What's next, you guys start wearing frilly dresses and pantaloon shields? If shields were good, I would have...

    Dreams

    In one dream, my backyard is gone, just an endless hole. Milk cans dance around the fence. A personal favorite. I have had the same dream in which I am yelling at my brother telling him I am going to town. I enter Keely's (a restaurant) and pick up a magazine and pack of cigs and telling the...

    iOS 7 vs Android 4.2

    At least I can start selling my Untethered Jailbreak for iOS/iOS7.1. Only 199.95 plus the cut IPF demands. No, wait . . . it is still much much early to start reeling in the suckers. I mean iOS 8.

    The "Useless Information" Thread

    I prefer to think of it this way: Not sure how manufacturing enters the picture. Different materials; glass, polymers, polarizers, and chemicals required to make the idiot screens require differing amounts of energy to manufacture, as will the TV/LCD/OLED/CRT. God only knows how to determine...

    The "Useless Information" Thread

    Yes, in some ways there is. Like writing with a fountain pen. I am left handed and it takes practice to avoid smearing the ink. Left handed people are proven to be better, any way. You right handed people need to change post haste or you will suffer.:mad: The problem is right handed people...

    Post your old technology!

    Well, I like dogs and I like kittens. I am addicted to cute kitten videos on YouTube. Girls for some reason find me irresistible. I am a technical writer with thoughts of best sellers; a TV series or movie deal in my head. Perhaps a reality series. My reality will scare you to death, I'll...
