Read before clicking.

Read before you click. And be careful when clicking on those Facebook emails. Hover your mouse over the link & you will see where it points.

iTunes: Our Way or the Highway!

You have to love iTunes. You have to give them a credit card BEFORE downloading FREE apps for the iPad. Then a few days later they change their Terms and Conditions. Not to worry: only 35 pages long. We love you Apple! (Note my restraint by not using any profanity in this post.)

Our History

Back in 1981, we bought our first computer. It was an IBM PC. It cost us $4,500 including a printer, 2 5.25 floppy drives and 64k of RAM. It was the best of the best. Hard drives were not yet available. (Our first hard drive was 10 MB . . . yes  . . . not gigabytes . . . megabytes. That was to come much later.)

Shame on Oracle!

Shame on Oracle! (www.oracle.com) for pushing updates to the Java programming language that include defaults to load other programs that users do NOT want. All users are recommended to download for correct operation of Java-enabled web sites. Yet, those updates are launched with defaults that will install programs like Carbonite (a remote backup program).

This is sneaky and unconscionable. Shame on you, Oracle. Are times really that tough?
