Security

Need I say more? In our line of work we see a large lack of security every where we turn. I wanted to give you some thoughts about how you control and secure your digital life. I treat my digital security just as I treat my personal physical security. What I mean is that I always lock my house and my car when I walk away from them. I also have to always lock my computer screen before walking away from from my machines. Passwords: Why do so many people in every work place in the world think that is … Continue reading

Shall We Continue?

I watched this weekend as we had a few more people unsubscribed to this blog and my daily posts. When you begin to see a decline you have to ask yourself, “Shall We Continue?” I do have to take my hat off to a few of you who added comments to my posts. I always feel that this adds a dimension for readers to have a few of someone else by you adding your input. I enjoy writing about tech, photography and tech education but I don’t want to do this morning work just for me. So today will be … Continue reading

Creation or Standardization?

In the vast world that we live in with the fast paced everything how can our children learn to handle change? We want them to handle change and we strive to find ways to get it into their brains. But STOP! Really? This is the talk in many circles but when you get right down to the cold hard facts we don’t want people who can think outside of the box. Anyone read The Maze Runner, read it and see what happens when we allow little people to begin to think on their own. At this writing there are no … Continue reading

Don’t Be Over Sold

Let’s face it, technology costs money and a lot of it! When you are shopping for a new computer, new tablet or maybe even a new cell phone, be aware. Let’s take a quick look at how this can happen. It is very settle but most times very direct. The main thing to remember is that you are there to buy only the item that you walked in the door for. Let’s dig a little. You walk into a big box store and ask to buy a Kindle Paper White. The sales men turns to you and asks, “Would you … Continue reading

3D or 4K Television What Will Win

We talked sometime ago about the fight in the early 70’s with the VCR using either VHS or BETA tapes. We all know that VHS won the war and became the standard. Then the fight for the Internet with web browsers. We had the fight between Microsoft IE and Netscape, with Microsoft winning out by using a shady tactic of FREELY giving away their IE browser. Now this brings us to the war for your dollars. And this war is coming to your living room. 3D TV’s were first really seen two years ago at  CES and really just didn’t … Continue reading

Missing Technology

Sometimes and in some places people prefer not to get involved in the Face Book or Twitter movement. They really prefer just to stay away from the entire technology movement. Do you ever wonder why anyone would want this kind of life style? I have often been caught saying that I would like to be back in the seventies again. We didn’t have computers or cell phones and we were just fine. What we seemed to have was more of something a lot of people are lacking these days. This is a little something called family. We used to talk … Continue reading

New Facebook Pages

I would like to thank everyone for reading my daily blog postings. I truly enjoy bringing you my thoughts on technology and photography. I often say about some people I work with that they have a lot of irons in the fire. At times it seems I also have a ton of irons in the fire at any given time.
