Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

Looking Back & Looking Ahead

Well it is that time of year again. 2011 is winding down and 2012 is almost here. Naturally, I guess, you see a lot of “The Year In Review”-type articles, as well as “What To Expect In The New Year”-type articles. (Have you started thing about your “resolutions” yet?)

I don’t feel much need to review the year: it felt basically the same as the year before (although tablet PC’s were hyped to death.. [did you see the word “Android” enough?]), and my ‘prediction’ for 2012 is it will be much the same as this year was.

I think it a safe bet: the number of Americans who will have their identity stolen will remain measured by the 10’s of thousands: credit card fraud will continue to plague the financial and insurance industries. And thousands and thousands of you will fall for a “rogue antivirus” pop-open attack… even though the warnings have been published (weekly) since 2007, and there is now a National Cyber Crime Awareness month.

The same small percentage will actually read the owner’s manual.
Life will get busier and more complex.

I will keep my “resolutions” for this coming year personal, and I will wish you much success in yours. I thank you for visiting here this 2011, and I hope to see you again in 2012. I offer you my sincere wishes for a healthy and prosperous new year!

The more things change the more they stay the same department: Got this today…

Mrs Rosalind Deters
Hello Dear,
My name is Rosalind Deters,i am a dying woman who has decided to donate
What i have to you.
I am 59 years old,was diagnosed of cancer about 2 years ago immediately after
The death of my husband,who has left me everything he worked for.
I have been touched by God to donate from what i have inherited from my late
Husband to you for the good work of God,rather than to allow my relatives to
Use my husbands hard earned funds ungodly…

Today’s quote:Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man.” ~ Benjamin Franklin
