  • AARP presents a webinar to help you ID the “bad guys”

    They look like the real thing, but they’re really just impostors after your identity and your money.

  • The New Normal? The Bad Guys and You Part 2: The Smack Down

    In Part 1 we talked about what the Bad Guys could potentially gain from targeting you and your “nothing worth stealing.” But I think you saw that maybe you do have something worth stealing after all. “Great, guess I’ll throw out the computer and no more email!” Probably not a good idea and certainly not practical. […]

  • The New Normal? The Bad Guys and You Part 1

    “How did this happen to me?” I’m often asked “how did this happen to me?” when cleaning up a machine infected with whatever Bad Guy stuff that was installed. It happens often. Way too much really. The Bad Guys are ramping up their efforts as they find more success. It’s easy and quick to do. Like […]

  • Have Evernote files you want to transfer to OneNote?

    I still maintain that OneNote is the best FREE tool you’re not using. Especially if you have a touch or pen device — but any device will do. There’s a OneNote App for that (really!).

  • Web link crashes Safari on your iPhone or Mac

    It works on Android too — and it’s not a good idea to do it on either. So far it looks like a “harmless” prank. If you visit the site crashsafari.com (please don’t) it will crash the Safari browser on Mac and iOS (phone) devices so hard that you’ll likely require a reboot. It appears […]

  • More conspiracy theories with Windows 10

    Opinion: I really wish the conspiracy theorists would go after Google and Apple as hard as they do Microsoft. Microsoft is huge, but the other two are just as big and in many cases doing things far shadier than anything Microsoft has come up with. In any case, I stumbled upon an article today from Business […]
