Time to Change Those Apple ID Passwords

This morning at breakfast, my friend Thomas told me about Apple being hacked and the need to change my password. Although it feels like I’m constantly updating passwords, it’s better safe than sorry. The short end of the story is, basically a group of London-based hackers have stolen 250 million Apple accounts and passwords, and are holding it for ransom.

So, in short, you need to update your Apple ID password as soon as you can. This should protect you from any unwanted result if they do indeed follow through on their threat. (more…)

A Memo to Donald Trump and His “Trumpkins”

A Memo to Donald Trump and His “Trumpkins”

You cannot be a “strong Christian” as you claim, when you ferociously and continuously defend Planned Parenthood as you do. Your sans abortion argument is totally invalid, but makes a good soundbite.

This is like saying “Jeffery Dahmer was a great man, and I supported him. Just not the killing and eating people part.” It’s illogical and it proves to everyone that you’re the complete and utter buffoon we watched during the last GOP Debate. (more…)

iCloud Control Panel 4.0 and Outlook 2013 Configuration Errors

When an iOS8 came out this fall, I was anticipating an update to the iCloud Control Panel as well. Sure enough, 4.0 was released out of beta and available for the general public to download and install. Anxiously awaiting to have everything in my Apple world updated, installed, and working seamlessly, I was frustrated to find that iCloud Control Panel 4.0 and Microsoft Outlook 2013 were not playing nice together.

In today’s world, everything is done over the internet. This is not the same world it was 20 years ago. It’s not the same world it was 10 years ago. The digital age moves at lightspeed, and you will get plowed over if you don’t at least try to keep up. One of the most common issues people have is online account security. There are several reasons for this, one being insecure passwords. According to this TIME article, some of the worst passwords of 2013 include, “123456”, “password”, “iloveyou” amongst others.

Perspective

Perspective

How many times have we heard, “It’s all about perspective!” Well if you’d like another great example of perspective, here’s the latest illustration that was given to me…and it’s brilliant!

March 21, 2010  was the day the (not-so) Affordable Care Act passed the House. October 1, 2013 was the day all Americans were supposed to be able to “shop the marketplace” and to finally buy “affordable” healthcare. Time that lapsed = 3 years, 6 months, 10 days.

December 7, 1941 was the deadly attack on Pearl Harbor, the “Day of Infamy.” Fast forward 3 years, 5 months, and 1 day until May 8, 1945 or VE Day, the day the WWII Allies formally accepted the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany’s armed forces. (more…)

Old Expressions Explained

This came through my email a few weeks ago. I found it fascinating as I read it through, especially the first expression. Who knew?

Early aircraft’s throttles had a ball on the end of it, in order to go full throttle the pilot had to push the throttle all the way forward into the wall of the instrument panel. Hence “balls to the wall” for going very fast. And now you know, the rest of the story.
