Protecting your data

As we move more and more of our lives into the digital realm, we need to do more to protect ourselves.

It is important to keep programs up to date, and to ensure your wireless networks are secure, but what happens if your computer is lost or stolen?

Windows 7

Windows 7 has had a good run, but now it's time to let it go.


OK, Pick up the Pace

Mac OS Sierra has been out about five months now. If your hardware supports it, you should install it.

What's the rush?

Windows 10 was released to the public this past Wednesday.

It looks nice, is more secure than Vista, Win7 or Win8, and does away with some of the oddities of Windows 8.

But there is no reason to rush to put it on your computer.

IOS Whatever

Do you have your updates?

I've seen a number of iPhones and iPads lately that have had odd problems. In almost every case, the problem was solved by installing the latest updates to the operating system, known as IOS. The current version is IOS 8.4.

It snowed

It snowed, it snowed, it snowed last night.
And all that snow has you trapped at home, unable to finish the project you have due.

iPhone Battery Life

Smartphone battery life is like the weather: Everybody complains about it.

Scotty Loveless, formerly one of the Apple Geniuses, has done something about it. He put together the best list I’ve seen on how to maximize the battery life.

Windows 8 updates

Microsoft’s monthly updates come out tomorrow morning (Tuesday, June 11) and should show up in your system tray by Wednesday or Thursday.
Several of the bugs fixed allow remote code execution so you want to install the fixes

Updates, we have updates

Apple has updated IOS 7 several times since its release this past September. If you haven’t installed 7, it is time to do so. If you have, make sure you have all the updates on your IOS device.
