Identity Theft Could Be Devastating

Recently, I have had two credit cards stolen and my postal mail has been stolen.I the past, I did not worry about identity theft. Now, that its close to home, I am very worried. I will now make everything secure and use multi factor security where available.I recommend using password managers like LastPass and OnePassword. Identity theft is a very serious issue, and can be financially devastating.Securing your identity will give you peace of mind in the future.

Samsung - 40" Class - LED - 2160p - Smart - 4K Ultra HD TV - Black UN40KU6290FXZA

I purchased this TV in early November 2016. This TV is no longer being sold by Best Buy. I have been wanting to buy a 4K TV for over a year now. Best Buy had this TV for $299.99 the regular price was $579.99 at that time.Well deals beware, when a price is reduced so much, there is always a good reason. I found out a couple of months later when I tried to use features that I thought my TV had. It appears that model 6290 is missing features that the model 6300 has.Looking back at this deal I would not do this again. I have purchased universal remotes, streaming devices, and sound bars, and they are not compatible with my TV.

My Love Hate Relationship With Twitter

Twitter I hate using on a daily basis to get my news. This, basically, is the way I consume news on a daily basis. I follow people, whom I think are interesting and read their tweets. I use twitter to find news articles and videos. Twitter is a great place to find out what is happing in world.I hate twitter, because it is like looking out of a window from a moving vehicle. You turn your head and you miss something interesting or you are looking out the window and it is just too much to take in.I miss Google RSS, why did you leave. I want news to slow down, and let me breath. I want to consume news at my rate, and when I want.

Apple to Remove the Headphone Jack on the Next iPhone

There are very strong rumors that the next iPhone will no longer have a headphone jack. This means that the headphones will need to be wireless or some how connect via lightning cable or adapter. The tech blogs are commenting, this is the worse thing Apple could do. This will upset their customers whom have invested a lot of money on their current headphones.

 First of all, this is a rumor, but their are strong indications that it is true. If it is true, we need to relax. Apple will give us their pitch why they did it. My opinion, I am glad that a company is willing to take a chance and making something different. I have been wearing headphones for over 40 years, and to this day, I have not found affordable headphones that I like.

Here are some issues that I have experienced:

High Cost - When your headphones cost more than your device, that is an issueWires - Having your headphones yanked out of your ears is the worst feelingOver Ear - This is very uncomfortable feeling, especially on …

Toshiba ChromeBook 2

(cb35-c3300)

I just received this Chromebook a few days ago, and it is my first Chromebook. For years I have worked on Windows based computers for work and Mac computers for personal use.  

Last year I decided to part ways with my MacBook, which I bought in 2013.  I rarely used this computer, and I decided to take a stab of using an iPad Air 2.  It did not go well, I used it even less, because it was not much different from my current iPhone.

I needed something different, something simple.  I did not want to spend a lot of money like I did in 2013 for computer that I rarely used.  This is what Chromebooks are made for, a simple computer that just does the basics.

Chromebooks range from about $150 to $500, excluding the Google Pixel. High end models range from $300 to $500.

While doing my research, I came across this Toshiba Chromebook 2 with the following features:
