Someone sent me this link:

and I was REALLY impressed with it. Made with Go Daddy’s website builder.

Looks great on my computer AND on my iPhone.

Windows 8 – I get it!!

I installed Windows 8 on my laptop ($40) in an effort to stay current. Even if I don’t like the results.
First off, it was an HP and it didn’t go so well, looking at HP’s website, they don’t have drivers. So, doing this wasn’t a great idea.

I didn’t like the user interface at first – and probably would say I still don’t – but I understand it! Its about getting things done, not about the computer. Your mail is right there, your internet is right there, etc. It’s NOT a hobbiest, techno fan operating system – it’s the operating system for your mother who just wants to do things.

iPhone thinks its still in dock – no sound

We had an iPhone that wouldn’t play thru the built in speakers (the little ones at the bottom). You could send stuff to the headphones (if you plugged in a set), or Apple TV, or thru the Dock – but that is all.

Even when it wasn’t in a dock.

I did some looking around the internet, but didn’t find a solution that worked. So, what I did was to plug it into a dock connector, then apply a little pressure up on the connector while removing it. Repeat, while applying a little pressure down on the connector…  Oh, yea, and use a nicely fitting connector (the one that came with the phone appeared to be a little use after all the wear and tear – so I used a different one)

Repeated 4 times, and then checked. Sound came out the built in speakers.

Other solutions I have seen on internet involved a q-tip and rubbing alcohol, I didn’t have either one handy. So, I agree with the idea that it’s crud on the dock connector – just I basically scrapped it off.

Courion Tips – the end of an era?

I no longer work with the Courion products. So, I can’t imagine posting any more tips. But, maybe…

Now, I work for a different company, and with products from Aveksa….
