- I would probably choose Lightroom 4. It doesn't do everything that CS6 Extended does, but it has more powerful editing tools than Elements.

- There is probably more acceptance of a resume with more frequent job moves now than in the past, but it still is going to get noticed. If you were looking at a resume and the applicant had left his/her last 5 jobs after a year or so, would you wonder if the same would happen with your company? I would.

- I was using my Compaq laptop literally on my lap, and running a pretty graphics intensive program. After a while, it shut down. I thought about it and realized the way I had been holding it had blocked the vents, and it was pretty warm to the touch. I waiting a little while and restarted it, and everything seems to be fine.

- Are video cards still necessary in PCs, or have they become an unnecessary expense if you don't use your computer to play games?

- OWA is pretty weak when it comes to printing. You can either continue to do it the way you have been, or just open them in MS Office and print from there. I would go with option 2. I don't know why Microsoft doesn't spend some time and effort to improve this.

- Sure, it's still cheap. A few years ago I wouldn't have, because Apps just wasn't (weren't?) all that polished. Now they are much better. Also, the new "pay" Apps will have actual 24/7 customer service, which is a nice upgrade from 0/0 customer service. Plus, what is the charge now? $5 per user per month or something close.

- riffin answers Re: How to make more people know about the shutting down of the famouse eBook store, Fictionwise, by 21, December?I think you did just that. At least there is an option to transfer your account and purchased titles to Nook if you are a Fictionwise user. Things come and go, I guess, and progress marches on.

- I haven't been able to fully charge my battery on my MacBook, and I thought recalibrating the battery might help. I'm not sure of the exact steps though. Anyone know off the top of their head how to do it?

- Like pretty much any business that has a computer we have a firewall. Someone asked me whether we had thought about an XML firewall. The answer is no, because I don't know what an XML firewall does that isn't already in place. What's different about an XML firewall and is it necessary for a small business?

- A big part of that loss was due to the acquisition of aQuantive. There was a $492 million dollar loss, but that largely sprung from a $6.2 billion write down of aQuantive, so really it was a one time accounting write off of some of the value of MS's online advertising business.

- Yahoo just launched a new browser for iOS devices. I have to confess that I didn't see that one coming, as I had no clue that Yahoo was in the browser business. So after getting over the Germany/Italy/Japan in WWII name choice, has anyone actually tried it? Does it bring anything new to the game?

- I see the term sideloading used pretty often in articles about smartphones, but they don't seem to explain what it is. I understand that it is a way of installing apps, but it seems to often be used in a negative context. Does sideloading require the phone to be rooted?

- riffin answers Re: Will being able to see exactly what info Carrier IQ tracks be enough to address privacy concerns?I haven't heard too much about Carrier IQ in a while. I think that they in some ways fell victim to the upswing in concern over loss of privacy that we are all experiencing as we become increasing valuable as advertising commodities.
