Learning Social Media Marketing

Where did I find out about web development, software, tech and business stuff?  I have an online resource that I think you'll find helpful and you can get a free trial if you read on.

Holiday Tech Tip

"Let's all gather 'round the screen and bask in the warm glow of a rotating update icon."  Said no one ever.

Keeping Track of Passwords

A quick note about all of those passwords.  They're everywhere and most tech people tell us to constantly change them and not to use the same password for multiple sites. There's no way to keep track of all of those passwords.  I use a little utility called lastpass.  It's a password manager that works on several different browsers and mobile devices.  You store your passwords in lastpass, make one big beastly password, and that one big password gets you into lastpass.

Windows XP Going Away

Many people still use Windows XP in their home and business PCs.  On April 8th, support for XP goes away, and you can read about it from Microsoft here.  Outside of technical circles, not nearly enough has been said about this and that's why I'm writing this article.  
 

Orphaned XP Machines

In April, Microsoft is ending support for Windows XP.  If you have a PC that you will replace and/or stop using that is decently functional, please let me know about it.  I will try to put ubuntu linux on it and if someone else can use it for basic web surfing and email I will attempt to find a donated home for it.

Disney Have & Have Nots

So I'm just back from my 3rd trip to Walt Disney World (WDW) in Florida and of course I have a few comments about the new My Disney Experience technology that they have been rolling out through the Summer of 2013.  My main gripe with this slow roll out of My Disney Experience is that it creates have/have nots of people who can book fast passes from their rooms and those who cannot.
