Amazon Dash Button 

1 Apr

dashbuttons

You remember the easy button from Staples? Well now there is one from Amazon, but this time when you press it – you place an order for stuff you need. If you never want to go to a store again, Amazon has the answer for you.

Amazon Dash Button makes ordering easy. With a simple click, Prime Members can order their favorite products. This button is a Wi-Fi connected device that reorders your favorite product with the press of a button. Each Dash Button is paired with a product of your choice, which is selected through the Amazon App on your Android or iOS smartphone during the set-up process. Amazon ensures Dash Button responds only to your first press until your order is delivered.

What do you think? Are you using this system? If not, would you use it?

Best Free Screen Capture Tool

24 Jan

Do you need to take a screen capture of a video, webpage, photo or document? Are you still using the ctrl + prtscn shortcut key trick? If you want a simple program that will save you the effort of using an shortcut key and get a better looking image, then try out Tinytake. I have been using it for a couple of years and it’s suitable. There is one drawback – it does not do too well with capturing a long scrolling webpage. If you need a quick screen grab, then I would suggest this tool. What screen capture tool do you use professionally?

4 Tips on Phone Security

2 Jan

Now that you got that new mobile phone for the holidays, how do you keep it safe? The rules for keeping both iOS and Android secure are exactly the same:

  • Install updates as soon as they’re available. This is harder on Android as some OEMs are really bad about pushing patches.
  • Don’t jailbreak/root. Doing this is intentionally breaking the security of the affected OS – it also generally means you can’t install updates.
  • Don’t install apps from 3rd party appstores. Almost all of the smartphone hacks you see start with “an app on Chinese-run appstore…” just don’t do it. Google, Apple, Amazon only.
  • Practice safe browsing. The same things that make your computer vulnerable, make your phone vulnerable.

If you follow these tips and you should be golden. Don’t bother with anything claiming to be antivirus or security software for your phone. Security software needs to run at a permissions level that just isn’t possible on a non-rooted/jailbroken device in order to be effective. It’ll just end up causing you problems and providing no protection.

Get A Handle On Your Life With This App

19 Jul

I recently needed to try a new app to keep my life in balance. I have tried many “to-do” apps and a friend recommended I try a new one called Handle. The app site says, “it combines your to-dos, email, and calendar so you know exactly what you need to accomplish today, tomorrow, and beyond.” I gave the app a try for a week and I liked it.
