We've all been there! You want to do some work on your Computer and you keep getting a warning telling you the Hard Drive is Full. Going through your drive and deleting files would be the nice thing to do, especially those ones that just seem to be duplicated throughout your Hard Drive. If you don't have time to do that, adding storage is always a great solution. In fact, with the pricing on Hard Drives currently, it is really to your benefit to plop down a few bucks and get that deal on the 1TB or 2TB drive you ...

[caption id="attachment_977" align="alignleft" width="200" caption="NewBlueFX - Easy to Use and Inexpensive"][/caption] I was fortunate through my years growing up to have attended a high school in Southern California that offered a video production class to which I became a TV Nerd spending time before and after the actual class creating shows and segments for the TV news-feed at school. We had much fun creating Wipes and Dissolves and getting our fellow classmates in front of the Blue Screen and Chroma Keying them into strange backgrounds. It was very basic but fun to do. Our editing was done on a Sony RM440 3/4 ...
We received the USB 3.0 version of the CM Storm Strike Force SF-19 laptop cooler... Until it's removed from the box, it's not apparent how sturdy it is! Made of plastic, metal mesh, and thick rubber...I expect this can take a beating. Notebook computers of up to 19-inch notebook can fit on it. The SF-19 is 1 foot 7 inches wide at its top. On the left side is a "LED ON/OFF" switch, a "MULTI-LIGHT SHADER" switch...and a speed control for the fans, which can also turn them off. On the right side is: the 12 volt power socket, four USB ports, ...
Like many of you, I get tired and irritable and just need something to do that is not one of my daily tasks or work related in any way. I usually will break out into an “I’m So Borrrred!” or something like that. Also like many of you I do not have a ton of cash for that dream vacation to the Bahamas or that short jaunt to Greece for my olive oil facial and dreamy Greek masseuse to give it. OK, dreaming aside; Heck! I don’t even have enough time or money to afford to go to El Cheap-O ...

There are new Kindle Fire tablets:
All-New Kindle Fire HD 7″ Tablet
7″ HD Display, Wi-Fi, 8GB or 16GB
All-New Kindle Fire HDX 7″ Tablet
7″ HDX Display, Wi-Fi, Optional 4G LTE Wireless, 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB
All-New Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ Tablet
8.9″ HDX Display, Wi-Fi, Optional 4G LTE Wireless, 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB
The HD has a dual-core processor; the HDX tablets have quad-core processors. I can tell the difference in performance of the two types…maybe because I can be consided a “power user” of all kinds of technology (computers, phones, and tablets) and tend to push them to their limits. If you intend on using them in in situations that pertain to heavy video and graphic uses…get the quad-core units.
What’s more impressive to me, is the enhancement to Amazon Prime:
“Prime members can now download hundreds of Prime Instant Video movies and TV shows to watch anywhere—on a plane, on vacation, or in the car. Prime Instant Video is the only U.S. online video subscription streaming service that offers offline viewing, and it’s included at no additional cost.”
After composing this post, I found viewing Amazon Prime content offline has been available via iOS:
“…Requires iOS 5.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch…”
Some people in certain television markets cannot watch the CBS television network on their Time Warner Cable service. CBS and TWC are having a dispute…
“Time Warner Cable has a limited quantity of basic indoor antennas available for free, to be picked up at our retail cable stores in Dallas-Ft. Worth, Los Angeles/Desert Cities, New York, plus Milwaukee and Green Bay in Wisconsin….these basic indoor antennas…will likely only work for customers whose CBS station originates in one of those cities, and who are within a short distance of the station’s transmitter.
“…we have partnered with Best Buy in those cities to provide $20 toward the purchase of any in-stock broadcast antenna at select Best Buy store locations.
“Antenna offer limited to current Time Warner Cable customers….Limited quantity available…limit 1 per customer while supplies last.”
I received a press release with the following information:

According to reports, June 25, pre-orders will be accepted for new Samsung Galaxy tablets…
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 will cost $199, $299 for the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, and $300 for the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1.
I noticed that none are noted to have a quad-core processor.
“All three Galaxy Tabs will come with a $10 Google Play voucher, three months free Hulu Plus, and a year of free Boingo hotspot use (it’s not clear what the data allowance will be). They’ll be available in either white or brown…”
It’s also reported that two years of 50 Gb Dropbox storage will be included.
And: “…keep in mind that the Galaxy Note 10.1 with its quad-core processor and S Pen costs only $50 more” than the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1.
Just a reminder that the Google Nexus 10, though it doesn’t have a memory card port (which is something I prize), has a quad-core processor…and is priced at $399.
“June 24th through June 30th, G5 Entertainment is giving away Epic Adventures: La Jangada on iOS, Mac and Google Play. Based on a novel by the legendary French novelist Jules Verne, the game takes you back to the 19th century on a trip with Minha and her family through the Amazon River…

“…you have to find and then return the items to their exact places in some scenes. For example, you’ll need to help Minha tidy her bedroom and pack a suitcase…”
