Way to Go Windows

The other day I was watching some television when this commercial came on that I thought was really cute. This little girl comes on and talks about how she is going to use happy words with happy pictures and make a slide show. The commercial is for Windows new Operating System upgrade for Windows 7. When I first saw the commercial I thought wow, then way to go came to mind. It is a good marketing step for recognition (not that they really need it).

If you didn’t get a chance to see the commercial it is posted on YouTube. Even if you are a Mac person you will appreciate the effort that PC’s are putting into getting ready for the update. I have recently purchased a Toshiba and will be getting my Windows 7 upgrade in the mail somewhere around the October 22nd release date, which I am pretty excited for.

How to Make Life Easier

We all need something that will bring joy into our day. For me there are a great deal of things, and people, that make me happy. However, recently I purchased a laptop and it has made my life easier. Okay maybe easier isn’t the right word, but I have been able to do work, school work and searching at a much faster pace. No longer do I have to wait 10 minutes for the laptop to start-up, five minutes for applications to load or use my entire battery life connecting to the internet. How great is that?

Now, I know not everyone can afford a new laptop, but, in my opinion, it is something I recommend saving for. You don’t always have to buy new things to make your day. Find something that makes you happy and enjoy spending time with it, or them.

Memorandum for September 11

It is my hope that all of us have taken a moment to remember eight years ago where we were and how we felt. There are many that survived and many that did not survive the attacks of September 11, 2001. Every one of us can take from them a sense of love and endurance. We can appreciate the sacrifices they made and have a hope for a better future; a future of children growing to be like those brave men and women, a future full of freedom and liberty, and most importantly a future of hope, gratitude and perseverance.

We owe many thanks to those that have given their lives in service. May we always remember them and honor them.

Safety First

Everyday there is an announcement of a computer virus, or a hacker, taking over a network. It has made many people agitated, including myself. You go to a site that you always use and one day when you need to get some valuable information you can’t. Someone hacked the system and was scamming money from people, so the site host had to shut down the Web site before things got too bad. Isn’t that annoying?

What can you do to avoid getting caught by a scam? Some small steps to take are: don’t visit Web sites you are weary about, never give personal information through e-mails, or on unsecure sites and don’t open e-mails from unknown senders.

Take some time to see how you can keep your personal information, as well as your computer, safe and hacker free. If you aren’t sure where you should start visit Dolomite today.
