Microsoft has announced that it plans to acquire Nokia's devices and services business, as well as license its patents and mapping services in a $7.2 billion deal.

What do you think of the Microsoft-Nokia deal?

G+ Update: Tips for Changing your Google+ Cover Image

I just updated my cover photo after a lot of trial and error and found these resources to be the most helpful.

For starters,I had no idea that you had to scroll up in order to see the entire cover image. Did you know that? I stole Stephan Hovanian's brilliant solution to that...at least until everyone catches on that this is how covers work.

Scale: If you're planning to update your cover image, start with +Stephan Hovnanian 's general guidelines. Beyond sharing the exact image size that you'll need (2120 x 1192), he maps out how your image looks on mobile platforms, apps, and tablets. It's simple and easy-to-follow.

Resize your G+ Cover Photo so that it looks like it did before

Windows 8: The Missing Manual

With Windows 8, Microsoft completely reimagined the graphical user interface for its operating system, and designed it to run on tablets as well as PCs. It’s a big change that calls for a trustworthy guide—Windows 8: The Missing Manual. New York Times columnist David Pogue provides technical insight, lots of wit, and hardnosed objectivity to help you hit the ground running with Microsoft’s new OS.

This jargon-free book explains Windows 8 features so clearly—revealing which work well and which don’t—that it should have been in the box in the first place.

The Art of Deception
Controlling the Human Element of Security
By +Kevin Mitnick, William Simon

Get our ebook Deal of the Day: The Art of Deception - $8.47 (Save 50%) Use code DEAL http://oreil.ly/Xn6c1l

The world’s most celebrated hacker delivers the lowdown on today’s most serious security weakness–human nature

"Finally someone is on to the real cause of data security breaches–stupid humans … Mitnick … reveals clever tricks of the ‘social engineering’ trade and shows how to fend them off."
–Stephen Manes, +Forbes

"A tour de force, a series of tales of how some old-fashioned blarney and high-tech skills can pry any information from anyone. As entertainment, it’s like reading the climaxes of a dozen complex thrillers, one after the other."
+Publishers Weekly 

"Mitnick provides hair-raising examples of social engineering–disgruntled employees stealing top-secret research, smooth-talking con men acquiring data on next-generation explosives for terrorists–and explains how to combat it."
– Angela Gunn, +Time Out New York 

"He was the FBI’s most-wanted hacker. But in his own eyes, Mitnick was simply a small-time con artist with an incredible memory [and] a knack for social engineering… This is Mitnick’s account, complete with advice for how to protect yourself from similar attacks. I believe his story."
– Simson Garfinkel , +WIRED  “…a fascinating read…” (ForTean Times, June 2004)

"...a lot of interesting cautionary tales..." ( +New Scientist  , January 2004)

Story
Tagline
Being of use via information and networking (to the many) and direct accounting services (to the few).
Introduction

I am an atypical accountant, who has diversified to an extent for support purposes.

To my clients (the very few) I provide internal accounting expertise to supplement their employee staff.

To the community I provide networking and technology support as possible. I participate in current technologies so as to remain current and take part in the important changes taking place.

More relevantly here on Google +, I use this page to support and celebrate community well-being, in the form of local business, community strengthening, positive change, learning, connections, and the fine art of co-existence in all its forms.

And, as I'm beginning to do more Google+'ing, am starting to set circle-parameters for each content item more specifically. When you circle me, I'll put you in circle(s) according to my perception of you and your interests. So the signal-noise ratio for any of you should be relatively good. Ongoing circle negotiation/feedback always welcome!

More detail on my professional practice:

I have over two decades of experience in all things accounting, and related aspects of small business/nonprofit support. I have worked in both for-profit and not for profit, small and large, local, regional and national.  

My practice has centered on the highest quality internal accounting processes: instituting them during initial accounting software implementation, ensuring their maintenance during transitions, strengthening them during periods of change. I have helped a number of companies/organizations choose, implement and optimize accounting systems including various software packages.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and I have also taken career coursework in computer systems, databases, human resources and benefits management and ongoing accounting and finance topics throughout.
