Thank you Kim, I learned a lot on my 1st computer "Windows XP"  When that got pretty old, I tried an iPad and I loved it.
Now I'm learning about my iMac from you.   I'm 76 and still enjoying learning and trying to keep up with my granddaughters.  Could not have done it without you.  
Listen to you every Saturday and always learn something.  
Thank you, Thank you,

This is one of the most ambitious initiatives I've seen yet in this realm; given Disney's demographics, it could turn out to be a watershed in how we consumers interact with businesses. 
Disney is counting on its multifaceted reservation system to ease the way to visit Mickey Mouse and company.

While Cerebus assures that no passwords were compromised — they are encrypted, of course — attackers did gain access to some usernames and passwords.

The Washington Post is publishing court documents that reveal that Microsoft, which owns Hotmail, deliberately searched through a Hotmail user's email account. (Hotmail is now call...

Kim, what did you tell her?????????????? I have an Ipad and love it I don't and have never had a mac book or mac computer. I do everything except i do not have a good app for printing. The app I had worked great until the updates and it no longer works right. I wish I could get rid of the computer altogether. I use a zag keyboard case and love it.

Hundreds of Galaxy Gear smartwatches are listed on eBay barely six months after launch. Why isn't the wearable tech market taking off? by Charles Arthur

Apps for iOS and Android failed to properly encrypt passwords and other data.

Elizabeth Weise in USA Today:

"On Tuesday, April 8, the Microsoft security patch will no longer cover Windows XP.

The landlord will have officially stopped fixing broken windows and doors.

That's a problem for the estimated 30% of computer users who still run Windows XP as their computer's operating system."
