Browser privacy settings

If you run Chrome or Firefox or any other of the popular browsers you can do a few things to the settings in order to keep your data a little more private. I’m talking more specifically about Google Chrome right now, but the same concept applies to all. Here’s some settings to look for: Turn […]

Web browser

Browser wars are boring. Try them all and test them all. Find one you like the best and use it. Browsers can be a nice swiss army knife of the web if you wish. Find one with plugins that are useful to you. I would like to point out a recent favorite of mine, Vivaldi, […]

Netbook Project

I jumped all-in on the Google Cloud. The idea was to purchase a Chromebook. They were a little too expensive. I went with a N23 from Lenovo. I love the design of the notebook. It’s small screen, tight case and touchscreen are awesome. It doesn’t win awards for storage space or processor/memory, but it sure […]

Since it’s introduction in 1991 by Linus Torvalds, Linux has been customized and built upon to meet the needs of a variety of complex environments. It runs many of the devices and servers we use every […]

Microsoft Bing

After about a month or so of use, I’ve found Bing to be a great search engine. Excuse me Decision Engine. Anyways, it works like it should and looks great. The only thing I would develop more is the Map area. In Google Maps you can click and drag a different route. Not to mention […]

Parallels: Vista Ultimate

Installation of Vista Ultimate on my MacBook went very well. After the install I noticed a couple of things I would’ve liked to see. I did lose some functionality, but that’s expected when you’re in a virtualized environment. Or is it? I would think that by now Microsoft and Parallels would have driver issues ironed […]

Cool new toys

Yesterday I went to a Microsoft {heroes} launch event. It was awesome. Free Mountain Dew, lunch bags (with food) and free software. Aside from all the free stuff I was pleased to find that it didn’t all seem like a big marketing seminar. I was actually impressed when the Evangelist (Kevin Remde) got into some nitty gritty […]

Necessities for your PC

***Obviously Out of Date in today’s world 092917*** I’m writing this thinking that your already know what I’m going to say, but surprisingly enough many don’t. There are a couple of applications that don’t come with windows (or do, but are not effective) that need to be installed in order to protect your PC as […]
