Newbie Question Here.

I want to make a grocery list that is shared with my family and can be updated at anytime by any person that it is shared with. Should I use the notes app or reminders?

Windows 10 Snapping Feature

This update to the snapping feature is very welcome. It may seem small to most but I am glad they have this now. Before when you snapped a window to the left or right, you would have to go and find the other window you wanted to snap.

Now when you snap something to the left or right it will bring up a grid on the other side for you to choose which window you would like snapped on the opposite side.

+Mike Simpkins I also use dual monitors at work so not really a need to snap but there is the odd time at home this should work like a charm!

If you've ever taken a screenshot or a screen video from an Android phone, there's a good chance you've been copying and pasting shell commands. I made a tool that does all this in one single click, even on multiple devices at the same time. 

I actually just made this for my team, but it turned out a lot of other people in the company could use it, so I thought other people might find it useful too.

Some interesting thoughts here.....might have to pull up a 10k report to see how it compares to Apples
 
Apple SWOT Analysis

Here is my revamped version of Apple's SWOT including some groundbreaking decisions and engagements of the company.

The deal with China Mobile, iOS in the car, engagement in mobile payment systems with Apple Pay, development of disrupting technologies based on wearables, and the cooperation with IBM are essential parts of the strategy powered by Tim Cook and his excellent engineers.

After Steve Jobs' death many publishing media rumored that Apple's power of innovation would be over. But we must not forget that it was not only Steve Jobs who did the work before 2011. Thousands of highly qualified employees went along with him and still go along with Tim Cook.

Companies that continually create value over the long term—meaning decades or more, learn how to ingrain the ability into their corporate makeup; it becomes part of their culture and DNA. They create value, jobs, and growth because of their ability to institutionalize innovation.
(Andrew Taylor, Boston Consulting Group)

A SWOT analysis is used to evaluate the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats in a business venture. It's used in any decision-making situation when a desired end-state has been defined.

SWOTs may look completely different if created from external or involved people.

'Vendor Lock-In' is mentioned by some analysts but I have a quite different opinion. Nearly all other tech companies try to link their customers to their ecosystems as well.

In a comment on Appleholic's Kool Aid Korner Michael Lapham made a suggestion for a modified map:

"If your going to add Decreasing market share as a weakness then I suggest you add Customer demographic as a strength. Much of the market share decrease is from the entry level market while Apple continues to dominate where individuals have higher income and more education."

New Apple Photos Question

Is there a way to view your photos on a map? (In regards to Mac)

I know how to find where the photo was taken but I would like to see a large map and see the general area where all my photos were taken.

Story

I'm kind of a big deal!
Introduction
I'm 24 working my way through college at USF. I'm self-employed at iDealerVideo. I love technology, Android, games, sports....really just about anything. I would also say I get along with a lot of people.

How I run things on Google+

Jump down to the Circles section to see what Circles I have. About 10% of my posts are shared publicly. I will try to add everyone that seems like they are here to stay:
  1. You need a profile picture of some sort
  2. You need to have an opinion, don't just share things all the time without having something to say about it.
  3. Engage with people if you don't that's no fun
  4. Easiest way to get added to my circles------>Say Hi, introduce yourself...tell me what circles you want to be in and I'll put you in them
If I don't know where to put you based on your profile, you'll be put into a special circle I have made called Purgatory. At least until I can find a suitable circle for you or none at all. Muahahaha!

If you want an idea where to stick me or what circles you want to be put in here you go:

Circles
  • Technology
  • Android
  • Video Games
  • Xbox Live ---->Gamertag = xX SIMP Xx
  • Sports (Mostly NFL but literally all of them)
  • Politics (Conservative but open to discussion)
  • Pop Culture (Movies/Music/TV Shows)
  • Photography (includes video stuff as well)

Came in with an SRS airbag error light that wouldn't go away. Within an hour they were able to figure out what the issue was and got it fixed. Extremely Friendly and the service was excellent. They walked me through step by step on what the problem was and how they fixed it. I would recommend to anyone to go with any issues you might have down to Tuffys and they will get it fixed.
