Even if this type payday loans high for emergencies.

As expected, customers were lining up to buy at Apple Stores to buy the new phones with larger displays to meet consumer expectations. The iPhone Plus has a 5.5" display and the iPhone 6 a smaller 4.7" Retina display. Both iPhones are available now from Apple's stores, carrier partner sites, Walmart and other vendors. The Gold model seems to be selling out. The new phones finally have LTE capability, better cameras, and all new design. OS8 will offer some major capabilities supporting Apple's new payment system, and health features some of which are not yet working.

 Jabra Stealth Bluetooth Headset –Delivers Xtreme Comfort, Sound, and Design
Even if this type payday loans high for eme
I have a pile of Bluetooth devices but recently received the Jabra Stealth to review. The first thing I noticed about the Jabra Stealth is its unique design and surprisingly light weight. This is achieved through the use of what Jabra calls MicroPOWER battery technology which they attribute to its extremely light weight, longer talk time, and increased comfort. I assume this is another word for a small but powerful battery. In the technology industry trademarked descriptions are always a marketing plus. So I put it on. This is the most comfortable Bluetooth headset I’ve ever worn. The Jabra Stealth was impressive in all areas. Light weight and comfortable you’ll forget it’s on your ear. It comes with 3 ear gels as well as two ear hooks. I normally have to try on each ear gel that comes with Bluetooth headsets to find the right size and sometimes none of them work well for me. Not so with the Jabra ear gels. I immediately got a great fit. That was a bonus. More

 Microsoft Releases Office for iPad!
Even if this type payday loans high for emergencies.

Today Microsoft announced the release of Office for iPad. The apps can be downloaded individually. The apps are “Freemium” (free). These apps are fully featured with and maintain a good bit of the same power that the full blown desktop Office applications scaled down to work on the iPad. However, unless you subscribe to Office 365 online ($9.99 month) you will be limited to reading and presenting not creating content. For serious productivity iPad users this might not be a bad choice. Microsoft also release the Microsoft Mobility Suite for the Enterprise BYOD marketplace. According to Microsoft’s press event today “With an Office 365 subscription, you can edit and create new documents with the iPad. When you edit a document, you can be sure that content and formatting will be maintained across Office on PC, Mac, tablet and phone. And, you always have access to your up-to-date documents in OneDrive and OneDrive for Business”. More info .

 How to Fix Windows Mail refusing to load because it is missing WLDCore.dll
Even if this type payday loans high for emer
I recently received an update message from Windows messenger that told me a new update was available which of course was Skype. I already use Skype but I installed it again. The same day I also switched from Windows Security Essentials to Avira to do a test and then switched back. Somewhere after that process, I discovered that Windows Mail would not work. Each time I launched it an error message indicated it could not find wldcore.dll. The articles I found in search were old. They also referred to a common shared folder c:\Program Files\Windows Live\Shared. Unfortunately, this folder did not exist on my Windows 7 installation. The fix: Do a repair of Windows mail. I went into Control Panel and initiated an uninstall and told Windows Essentials 2012 to repair only Windows Mail. Voila! Worked like a charm. Up and running again. I finally found an article that dealt with this issue. - Howard Sobel More info .

 AppleOutlookDAVConfig is crashing Outlook Calendar
Even if this type payday loans high for emergencies.

After wasting considerable time using Google to research why AppleOutlookDAVConfig was crashing my Outlook calendar I was able to quickly come up with a search result high up on the list that was actually solved the problem. Interesting that it was in the Bing Search Engine! This problem has been around for years and is related to iCloud synchronization with repeating events in syncing the Outlook calendar. I found a large amount of similar messages on the Apple discussion boards as well. More info on fixing this issue.

 Microsoft to Provide Malware Support for XP until July 2015
Even if this type payday loans high for emergencies.

Good news for Windows XP users. Microsoft reversed its decision to terminate support for Security Essentials. You will now be able to get "malware" updates until July 2014. This is not the first time Microsoft has reversed some of its end of life decisions for XP but XP is like a cat with nine lives. With millions of users still using XP turning off malware support would not have been a wise thing for secure computing. However, there are a lot of third party malware/anti virus choices that support XP. So really this is not such a big deal. - Howard Sobel List of XP compatible AV/Malware products .

 Scam Alert - The Great Fake Computer Tech Call Scam
Even if this type payday loans high for emergencies.

If you get a call from a "tech support agent" asking you if you are aware that your computer or server has serious errors DO NOT LET THEM TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR COMPUTER. They will urge you to let them take over control so they can fix the problem. This is a known scam. The caller ID was spoofed so if you call 212) 777-3456. you'll get "MoviePhone." Be cautious. Don't hand over your password and never let someone you don't know or trust take over your computer. There are some legitimate companies using remote tech but these are initiated by YOU calling their tech support line when you are seeking support for say your cable connection.

 Unethical Software Monetization Methods Are Driving Users Nuts
Even if this type payday loans high for emergencies.
Freeware has always been a benefit for users and developers. Developers were happy to provide freeware to users for the opportunity of selling their more powerful versions. Consumers love to get “free software apps” that provide value (not cripple ware). Things have changed. The new monetization tool for software publishers is either including a toolbar or installing other applications with their download. They key to defining where unethical boundaries are crossed are in the disclosure process to the user. - Howard Sobel Pre-order Windows 8.1 .

 Review Dropcam® HD – Wins on Simplicity, Design, and Execution
Even if this type payday loans high for emergencies.
There are lots of devices that claim to be easy to install. Dropcam has developed a Wi-Fi wireless solution that takes literally seconds to set up. That's quite an acheivment when you pull it off correctly.

The box claims “Watch online” in 60 seconds. I didn’t have a timer going but it sure was very close to its promise. I’ve installed quite a few other Wireless IP Cam solutions which were easy to install but none were as easy as this. Having installed hundreds of hardware devices and thousands of software apps, my main flaw is that I tend to try to jump ahead anticipate the next step after scanning the directions. Sometimes I omit steps by not carefully reading the quick start until I run into trouble. Sometimes it's a good test because many users tend to do the same.

 Small, Fast, Flexible - WR700N 150Mbps Wireless N Mini Pocket Router
Even if this type payday loans high for emergencie
These three words spell out the advantages of TP-LINK’s new TL-WR700N 150Mbps Wireless N Mini Pocket Router. Packed inside this tiny footprint (3.2 x 2.8 x 1.1 inches it fits inside a large pocket) sits an extremely flexible wireless solution for use at home and travelling. Since many hotels offer wired ethernet connections they seem to limit you to one specific area. TP-LINK has eliminated that problem by allowing you to plug in the device near the cable and you have your own WI-FI hot spot in your room. You can then use your any of your WI-FI enabled devices. Surprisingly, it supports 5 modes: AP Mode (Default), Client, Repeater Mode and Bridge Mode. The AP mode converts a wired (cat 5 connection) into a simple wireless access point providing any WI-FI device within range a solid ultra fast connection. For comparison we tested a Fios G router, a Belkin N router along with the TP-LINK product. The WR700N got the fastest download and upload speeds on Ookla’s speed tests feeding off of a FIOS fiber optic connection. The modem is compatible with 802.11n/g/b and supports WEP, WPA/WPA2, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK encryption standards.Read more.
