Quick Tip Tuesday Returns! We’ve had an incredibly busy two months & our Facebook page has been rather bare… now it’s “go time”. Look forward to daily Tuesday Tips again and please don’t hesitate to ask questions. We love to help people.
Quick Tip: simply add one character, like an *, to make your passwords exponentially stronger.
Quick Tip Tuesday – for our Mac Fans: You guys need to perform updates too! That includes iPhones & iPads.
Every time an Adobe Reader, Flash or Shockwave update comes out (which is about every hour it seems), it applies to the Mac OS also. If you run the Mac version of Microsoft Office; they come out with monthly updates also.
Don’t fall for the mis-conception that you guys can’t get viruses. Over 90% of all viruses these days come from website “drive-by muggings”. What does that term mean? Watch for next week’s Malware Monday post for the rest of the story, as Paul Harvey used to say.
Men, I suggest you Like this page. It contains great free tips on making great impressions with a proper wardrobe, among other things.

A new client’s PC had over 5 Internet Toolbars loaded. They asked: “How did they get there?” I updated their Java and showed them. Many free programs ask you to download extra stuff & most people don’t know they don’t have to. In the picture below, simply un-check the “Install the Ask Toolbar…” Java will still install and you don’t get a worthless toolbar that simply takes up space and slows your browser down.
As we’ve said in an earlier post, over 83 Million Facebook Accounts Are Fake.

Malware Monday: The most important thing about your virus protection program is not which one you use… it is that you keep it completely updated. Over 400 new virus come out each day. If your protection is not consistently updated, it is almost worthless.
Our favorite program, Malwarebytes Pro, got a black eye two months ago by issuing a bad update that damaged the Windows operating system of 1000’s of PCs. We’re still sticking with them; nobody is perfect.
Watch for our weekend Nashville.com blog about this fiasco, and updating programs in general.
Quick Tip Tuesday: Always place your laptop in the floor of your car. Never put it on the passenger seat. If you get in a bad wreck, that 5 pound bag will feel like a brick if it flies in your (or your kids) direction.

Why? We’ve always found PCs are just more stable & reliable if you completely update the OS first. Tune in next week for more #Windows8 tips.

#FunFactFriday: The first iPhone was invented in 1983!
Of course, it wasn’t anything like the rectangular cell phone we know & love today. It was a land line phone with a built-in stylus controlled interface instead of a touch screen. Unfortunately, this marvelous device never saw the light of day.
