The following annoyance started about the time I installed iOS 10 on my iPhone and does not happen on my Android phone...

After selecting the FIRST item from an Enum column, the keyboard will pop up. This does not happen when selecting anything but the first item.

Example below...

If I select "Repeat", the keyboard pops up and I have to press "Done" to dismiss it. But if I select anything besides "Repeat" it goes back to the table so I can select the next item - as it should.

Thanks Mark. This leads me to believe it is a bug in the iOS 10 embedded browser. We will look for a workaround, but given it's an OS issue there isn't a quick fix.

Charter DNS issues: I just had 2 clients that could not access Bing search from msn.com home page. Changing from Charter to Google DNS servers fixed the issue.

It starts when your computer suddenly freezes and a pop-up warns you of a problem. Next, a "technician" offers to fix it, if you allow him to gain access to your computer. Here's how to spot the scammers.

Hopefully now that Verizon is acquiring Yahoo, AT&T will switch to a secure email service.

Warning: "Dell Technical Support" is back at cold calling people and telling them they are getting signals about problems with their computer. It's a SCAM! I told the guy that just called me that when he gets hit by a bus tomorrow maybe he'll think about all the people he's scammed. Shame on these scammers.

I've got one app that I use on my 2 computers and 2 smartphones. I've not shared with anyone. However it currently shows my email address + 14 Guest users. Has my app possibly been compromised, or with each new update on my smartphone is it generating a new guest number? I see that require authentication is not available on the Free plan.

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.

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.

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.
