Wonderful USB Sharing Adapters

I recently ran in to an age old problem of needing to connect two PC’s to the same printer. For various reasons, I couldn’t share the printer, or run it though a server; the two machines can’t speak to each other for security reasons. Basically, one PC is on a home network and another is …

Just Applications: iPhone 4S Siri and Android voice recognition

Initially, there’s no comparison. Iris isn’t even remotely ready to do anything that even resembles artificial intelligence; it couldn’t answer any of my questions. And for the most part, gave me answers that were basically, I don’t know; give me another question. In some other recent posts, I talked about the software that uses the …

Useful tools: FileMenu Tools

Windows Explorer lacks a lot to be talked about; even with the latest version of Windows. In everyday use of Windows Explorer I find situations where the base model just doesn’t cut it, and honestly I don’t understand why the version of Windows Explorer has been the way it has… there’s so much room for …

Windows 8 App Store– Very ‘Original’ And Needed Idea

The title of this post has a level of sarcasm in it, but back in 2009, Windows 7 was about to be released and having played with the beta version of the operating system for a few months, I was very sad to see that Microsoft had done nothing with their applications handling. A few …

How to put a DVD Movie on your Motorola Xoom

The Motorola Xoom is a great tablet device. I find myself taking it everywhere to do do everything and it’s even better in situations where I have nothing to do. To be honest I find that my wife uses it much more than I do, but it’s uber-handy to have around. I have not made …

Energy Saving: Green things I’d like to use

My vision of the a Star Trek universe and a flying world of the Jetson’s is very, very slowly coming around; at a snails pace, but there’s thing right now that I’d like to use for going GREEN right now that I think would make a big difference in how everyone gets there power. I …

AT&T Scoops Up T-Mobile… to get 4G

nedshrjl.jpg

Back in January AT&T started addressing the fact they were going to lose some of their iPhone users to Verizon; so in reaction to that and the fact they don’t have a 4G network, they decided to bump up the wattage on their deception practices— they simply lied about having a 4G network. You can …

Internet Explorer 9 won’t install on a Windows operating system- What a joke!

I’d speculate I’m one of the lucky few that Internet Explorer 9 won’t install on. I have Windows Vista HP with 64-bit operating system. I’ve been waiting to download and install the Internet Explorer 9 official version because I just didn’t want to deal with more Internet Explorer half baked crap. Well, seems as though …

What’s New/Some Requests: Windows Live Writer 2011

image.png

Another release of Windows Live Writer has come out and the Windows Live Writer development team has made only small changes thus far. I’d speculate that Windows Live Writer is going to be in beta for a while longer… The startup/splash screen for Windows Live Writer now says ‘Windows Live Writer 2011’; and that’s fascinating …
