Incoming calls are getting a fast busy signal on 2 of my Google voice lines right now. Hmmm?

I've seen a connection to my Yahoo account by "Yahoo Partner's Application" that is likely how hackers are getting in. See: http://sleepless.blogs.com/george/2013/06/how-to-thwart-those-annoying-yahoo-email-hackers.html
 
It appears that many AT&T / Yahoo email accounts have been hacked in the past few weeks. We recommend that you change your password immediately: http://computertechsreno.com/what-to-do-if-your-email-acco…/ You may also want to consider moving to a more secure email service such as Google's Gmail or Microsoft's Outlook.com

Got a HooToo travel router. Hopefully it will connect to all wi-fi networks where the TP-LINK sometimes failed to connect.

I hate it when Windows Updates fail like this - sometimes taking hours to revert.

It looks like AT&T has launched HD Voice in much of Nevada and Northern & Central California. Calls will finally be clear again. Now I'm just waiting for wi-fi calling, then I can ditch my MicroCell.

+Mark Cobb I hear ya on the MCell - had one for 3 years now, and it's not getting any better in my area.  20 miles (as the crow flies) from Memphis, TN, and I can't get good cell service without it.

It looks like the incoming call problem with Google Voice is a common problem: https://productforums.google.com/d/msg/voice/rdcBXYkoCUI/y_zpyAJdKHEJ But how do you get Google to respond to trouble reports with a free service besides user forums? There's nobody to call at Google Voice.
Google Groups allows you to create and participate in online forums and email-based groups with a rich experience for community conversations.

Is this how hackers are gaining access to Yahoo accounts even with strong passwords? I've removed "Yahoo Partner's Application" from my various hacked accounts.

Don't fall for scams like this if you see it on your iDevice.

Phone manufacturers need to build a QR code reader directly into the camera app, rather than having to rely on a separate app for that.

I too have noticed strange syncing behavior between iTunes and Apple Music. http://www.loopinsight.com/2015/07/22/apple-music-is-a-nightmare-and-im-done-with-it/
I love Apple. I love them because they take difficult problems and come up with innovative, simple solutions. The things they make just work and we trust them...

My family took a 2-hour ATV guided tour on the Rubicon Trail on the west shore of Lake Tahoe. My kids had never driven ATVs before. Everyone had a great time. The check-in staff and guides were professional, helpful and friendly. Will definitely do it again.

This was our first time to ride a Segway. The staff took the time to make sure we were comfortable and skilled using the personal transport before taking them to the streets. Our guide Sami was great as we traveled the streets and sidewalks of Waikiki. We made plenty of stops so that we could rest our feet, take pictures and learn about different points of historical significance. If you've never riden a Segway, Hawaii is a great place to do it. This was our favorite activity while on vacation.

We had eaten here 5 years ago on the first night of our last visit to Waikiki, and decided to come back - again on the first night of our visit. I remember the pizza being fantastic (somehow better than Round Table), and it again did not disappoint this time. My wife and daughter weren't in the mood for pizza, so they decided on pasta and soup - both which were good. I didn't remember the menu being so extensive, or the fact that they also serve breakfast - the selection is great. We may eat here for every meal of our visit :D Service was fast and friendly, and the staff was attractive too ;). We'll be back. Highly recommended.

We just finished our 3rd vacation in Hawaii, each time staying at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach. Again we were not disappointed. Now that the kids are bigger, this time we booked a city-view 1 bedroom suite. We ended up getting a partial ocean view. The room was spacious and clean. Though we expected to be able to have the kids sleep in separate beds, the suite's configuration of beds and sofa beds did not allow that. Once informing the desk of the sleeping arrangement problem, we were provided with a complimentary roll-away. Everybody was happy. The Shore Bird and other restaurant has a great view and atmosphere, but a little pricey. The buffet breakfast has a great selection and the quality is good, but the juices don't taste good and they are not cold. We're looking forward to our next visit.

After reading reviews about Roberts Hawaii and other shuttle bus providers, I decided to choose Roberts Hawaii because they appeared to be the best of the worst. Our plane landed 40 minutes early and we were pleasantly surprised to find our greeter waiting for us at the gate. After escorting us to the restrooms, we were sent down to get our luggage and met by another friendly employee who loaded our baggage on a cart, took us on a short walk to the shuttle bus then we were on our way. The time it took to get from the gate to our moving shuttle seemed like 10 minutes - very fast and efficient. There were only 3 couples on our shuttle, we were the second stop. The shuttle driver pointed out a few good places to eat nearby our hotel, and a minute later we arrived. I estimate the time from gate to hotel was 45 minutes. Very efficient despite Honolulu traffic. This company is professional. They use radios to hand you off from gate greeter to baggage helper as they direct you down the escalators to baggage claim so that we know where to go. Great job. Hopefully our shuttle back to the airport in a week goes just as smoothly. UPDATE: Our trip back to the airport was right on-time, and took 45 minutes even with a few pick-up stops along the way. Will use Roberts Hawaii for our next trip.

When my wife had a relapse of a recent sickness during our first day in Waikiki, I turned to Google to find a nearby urgent care. We knew what the problem was, and needed to get an anti-biotic to take care of the issue. Pros: Doctor Jackson was very knowledgable and took the time to talk to us and really cared about the problem and order follow-up tests. He's someone you would expect as a primary physician - not at an urgent care facility in a tourist area. Other office staff very friendly. Cons: Waiting room small, and it took over an hour to get seen by the physician. Receptionist didn't seem too knowledgable about billing and the financial part of the visit, but she was friendly. Their website seem outdated because acclaimed doctor on it doesn't appear to be still working there. However Dr. Jackson was great! Now we're back to enjoying our vacation!
