- I know the, "tell him not to use it then" advice, but teenagers being teenagers, that simply isn't realistic, and he needs to be able to reach us because of his participation in many after school activities, so taking it away isn't a good choice either.

- Yeah I don't like having "I live here, Internet Stalker" info on my pics either. I had a lot of fun with a friend of mine who would send me photos while she was in Europe and I could always identify where she was because the EXIF data included longitude/latitude.

- I think QuickOffice is pretty good. It handles Word docs fine, and you can access password protected Word docs. I would rather have Office, but QuickOffice works well enough for most things I would do on a tablet.

- I'm putting together a PC that will be used for some pretty heavy CAD/CAM use and want to use a case that will help keep everything inside nice and cool. I'm talking about air cooling, just to be clear. I was thinking about a Cooler Master HAF 932, but I'm open to other choices.

- OpenDNS is the easiest way to do it. It's a router based solution, so it will cover your entire network. You have to pay $20 for a year for the "premium" version, but there is a free version as well so you can give it a try first.

- They added a search filter to image search, so after you go to google, choose the IMAGES tab at the top of the page. Once you are on the images search page, go to the drop down menu for type of image and choose animated. Let the cat watching laughter begin.

- It may be cold comfort, but at least you are not the only person experiencing this. The only advice that I've seen is to clear your cache and cookies, which sounds like the kind of thing tech support says when they don't have a clue. https://productforums.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/chrome/MTinTo-sPFU

- If you are trying to import them from Apple devices, I think that you will need to install iTunes first, and use that to import them. Also, if you haven't done so already, make sure your drivers are installed and up to date. What kind of error message are you getting?

- There are a lot of notepad type apps out there, and pretty much all of them will do the trick. I like Floating Stickies (free - Google Play) because it's (1) free, (2) simple, (3) is only 293k, and (4) let's me put a persistent "sticky note" anywhere I want on my display.

- If you are going to build a gaming machine, I suggest you use 3DMark and PCMark 7. They aren't free though - 3DMark costs ~ $25 and PCMark 7 is ~$40. www.futuremark.com

- The problem I have writing on tablets is the on-screen keyboard just can't compete with a physical keyboard that offers solid tactile feedback. It is just too easy to make an error on a touch screen where I rarely would with a keyboard.

- You can use photoshop and do it pretty easily, or you can upload a short vid clip to a few different websites that will create a GIF from your clip while you take a sip of coffee. Gifninja is my favorite, and it allows you to stitch together multiple images to make a GIF as well.

- The number of questions I get about Big Data has been on the increase, and a lot of them are at a very fundamental level. What are some good examples of Big Data use that I can refer to that demonstrate "real world" use and benefits?

- I think Mr. Nerney is right. I haven't used GIMP in over a year, but I had heard a number of times back then that Pantone would "soon" been available in GIMP, yet it never seemed to come true. Kind of like Duke Nukem was for about a decade.

- BB 10 is almost here - finally. I haven't got my hands on one yet personally, but from what I've seen they actually look like pretty devices. It looks like all the major carriers in the US are going to support BB 10, so they are still in the game. The question I have is whether business will continue to support BB.

- If you use QuickBooks, they have a search function on their site for compatible inventory management software that lets you choose the functions you needs, such as CRM, customer shipping, capacity reporting and so on. That will help you narrow down the list, and you can check reviews on the ones that fit your specific needs.

- Ok, I understand that I need a certain amount of bandwidth to ensure good call quality on a VoIP system, but what is the most important factor in call quality, assuming you have sufficient bandwidth? We have QoS rules in place that prioritize voice traffic, but how much do factors like latency and jitter affect sound quality?

- Someone told me that there was a way to set up push notifications on your PC so you don't have to constantly pull out your Android when you are sitting at your desk and get a message alert. Kind of like how you get notifications on your phone, but in reverse. Any idea how to do this?
