  • The lack of relevant work experience coupled with three years passing since you finished school, apparently with no IT related job responsibilities in light of your PR job….well, that’s going to be add a bit more challenge for you.

  • Now that Office has finally been released for iPad, can it be used if you don’t have an Office 365 subscription? I’m not sure that I want to spend ~$120 a year for occasional use of Word on my iPad.

  • The planned merger of Time-Warner and Comcast will result in a single company in charge of almost ¾ of the cable industry, which means that same company will also be one of the largest ISP in the country, if not the largest.

  • If your router has a built-in firewall, is it necessary to also have a firewall in place on each PC on the network, or is that redundant?

  • I’m not sure that I like Google’s new “feature” that will allow strangers to use Google+ to send me potentially unwanted emails. Can I turn this off?

  • LG purchased WebOS last year and is releasing a Web OS based SmartTV. Will having WebOS make a difference in the user experience, beyond changing the UI?

  • After switching from an iPhone, I’m not getting a lot of messages from friends, the ones that are on iPhones in particular. Other people’s texts I get just fine. Anyone know what could cause this?

  • I disagree a little with the article Christopher cited. Rapidly moving images can “tear” or look blurred at 60Hz. Most of the time, I only notice it when watching a hockey or football game in HD, and the camera pans rapidly. 99% of the time, you probably won't notice the difference, but it can be distracting when you do.

  • The higher priced cables may or may not have higher quality connectors. If the signal goes from Point A to Point B, it really doesn’t matter. A gold plated connector isn’t going to magically make the image quality better, for example. I personally think it is absurd to pay $50+ for a 2 meter HDMI cable.

  • How can I revert back to iOS 6 if I don’t like iOS 7 on an iPhone 4S?

  • I’m not sure what is causing the problem for you. Maybe an adblocker or similar browser extension is causing issues? I have noticed an occasional hiccup on some sites, including large ones such as IT World or Wired, when using Chrome. I have switched over to Firefox (or closed and restarted my Chrome browser) when this has happened to me.

  • I decided to apply a firmware password for additional security when I got my new Mac recently. Even more recently, I managed to lose it. How can you reset the firmware password on a Mac?

  • I was thinking of switching my carrier, and Sprint has the cheapest plan that would meet my needs. However, I'm in a WiMAX coverage area, and I'm a little worried about network speeds and reliability. I was hoping that someone who has used WiMAX could give me an idea of how fast (slow?) it is in actual use.

  • I’ve decided to delete my Facebook account for a couple of reasons, but there are things on there that I would like to save. Is there a way to save my data on my computer before I delete it?

  • I've read posts from other people occasionally having this problem.  IIRC, you can use IE developer tools to find the old images in Sharepoint designer and delete them, then re-save the image that you want visible again.  That should make the right version of the photo visible.

  • Since I upgraded my iPhone 4 to iOS the WiFi switch has been grayed out so I can't turn WiFi on. Obviously this is not good, because without WiFi, it won't take long to burn through my monthly data allotment. Has anyone else ran into this WiFi problem after upgrading to IOS6? More importantly, how do I fix it so I can have WiFi enabled again?

  • When the iPhone 4S came out, it was Siri this, Siri that. I'm curious, now that the newness has worn off, do people actually still use Siri?

  • It may be a sign that my standard for entertainment has dropped, but I followed the search for NYT columnist David Pogues iPhone this morning like it was an episode of Breaking Bad.

  • I think that is a long ways out.  Just installing the fiber in one city is going to take 1.5-2 years for Google.  Now, I think that is actually pretty impressive starting from scratch.  Remember providers like AT&T and Comcast had cable and copper lines already in place when they built their networks.

  • Bitcoin, the "virtual currency", has been around for a while now. I thought it would quickly fail and fade away, but I realized that I've been thinking that for almost two years now, and Bitcoin is still here.
