- I would like to get Microsoft Office Mobile for iPad, but I don’t want to pay $100 a year for an Office 365 subscription. Can Office Mobile for iPad be used without Office 365, or is that the only option?

- Open SETTINGS>NOTIFICATIONS>MESSAGES. Scroll down until you see “Show Preview” and slide the switch to off. This way it will still notify you when you get a new message, but the preview won’t be visible for the world to see.

- I am a fan of nutritious eating and practice such by consuming the most natural foods I can. I see GMOs as a plague in American society and feel as though Monsanto is a hindrance to a healthy lifestyle.

- It's not really intended to be a normal tablet. I haven't seen the latest version, but a friend of mine has an "old" version (actually not a Paperwhite, but a touch). It is good to read on, but it has a very slow screen refresh rate.

- Here is a detailed guide to using Time Machine to restore your system. It's lengthy, but should cover what you want to do. Just get out your reading glasses.

- I've seen the press releases, er articles, about Google Now being available on iOS. I'm not sure I understand what it does. I thought it was something like Siri, but a co-worker that uses Android says it is completely different. Unfortunately, he couldn't show me because his Android phone wasn't new enough to support it apparently.

- All of my contacts on my iPhone just vanished for no apparent reason. I've never had this happen before. What can I do to get my contacts back?

- Upgrade to iOS 5.1 if you are going to try iOS 5. Many people who have upgraded still find it very slow and laggy though. If you read the Apple forums for 3GS users, a lot of them were not happy with the results of the "upgrade".

- Go into your Utilities folder and find Boot Camp Assistant. Double Click it and continue to "Download Windows Support Software". Click "I Have Already Downloaded the Windows Support Software....". This opens the select task window. Select "Create or Remove a Windows Partition," then click continue.

- Mountain Lion includes a utility called Migration Assistant. You can use Migration Assistant (which can use Time Machine) to migrate your data. It will give you the option to transfer your data from the PC if you are on the same network.

- Not if they live in a large city and use public transit. That was the deal breaker with Apple Maps for me. I spend a lot of time in Chicago, but I don't live there, so I don't know all of the bus and el routes off the top of my head. Google Maps has that information, Apple Maps does not. Game over as far as I'm concerned.

- Sure, why not. It has a great display, you already have it. Cnet reviewed the Aiseesoft video converter and seemed to like it (although cnet seems to like a lot of stuff they review). Might want to give it a go since it has a free trial.

- You can disable the part where it displays the message preview so that people can't see your secrets, but it will still show the sender's name. Settings>Notifications>Messages> Slide "Show Preview" to off > enjoy your stealth text notifications.

- One of my Linux lovin' pals (yeah, you, Mr. "Oh, Linux what CAN'T you do!") is claiming that without Linux, the Higgs-Boson discovery wouldn't have happened. Ok, so Linux may be king when it comes to serious computing, but was it really central in the ability to carry out the research? Couldn't Window have been used to do the same thing?

- NxT1 is going to be a noticeable improvement over T1. I'm sure it varies somewhat based on who your provider is, but here we have options ranging from 3Mbps to 12Mbps, which is quite a lot faster than the 1.5Mbps you can expect with a T1 line.

- The videos I've seen of The Leap are pretty astounding. For those who haven't seen it, it allows you to control your computer using gestures. Much like Microsoft's Kinect, except it apparently works well and The Leap is very small.

- I don't know about the iOS browser, but the desktop version it is a joke. It is a "browser" that is essentially a browser plug-in. Whaaaaat? That's right, if you are using it on your laptop/desktop, you have to run it through another browser. Back in the day we used to call browsers like that "plug-ins".
