Sending money to your friends and family is as easy as sending an email.  

This ties in Google Wallet to your Google Mail.

I recommend wallet as an easy and free / cheap way to transfer money around.

Recently, I cleared an advance in Iowa by a quick transfer from my phone.

Pretty neat.

The recipient was impressed.

Laugh. I just hate owing anyone anything. And love to play with technology. I think I’ll be using it more.

Chrome Remote Desktop

Access other computers or allow another user to access your computer securely over the Internet.
Chrome Remote Desktop allows users to remotely access another computer through Chrome browser or a Chromebook. Computers can be made available on an short-term basis for scenarios such as ad hoc remote support, or on a more long-term basis for remote access to your applications and files. All connections are fully secured.

As always, “TPIR” (http://www.priceisright.com/), and YMMV!

But I like it.

I’m recommending it.

Have You Seen Her? Police Looking for Woman Involved in NJ Fraud Scheme

NOTJJ 2014 09 06

Suspect allegedly stole license plates from cars in East Brunswick, cashed forged checks at various banks around New Jersey, police report.

Guess facial recognition software is NOT that good yet!

In one respect, that’s good for privacy.

In another, that’s bad for putting an end to this petty crime spree before others get hurt,

HARDWARE: Bond multiple internet connections

Monday, September 1, 2014

Carrier grade capabilities coming down to high end user price levels.

It’s easily now in the SMB range. Won’t be long before it’s in SOHO.

Bond 4g, 3g, cable / fios, cell phone bandwidth together.

Never dreamed of in the old days.

Wow.

Introducing SimplyBonding from 3Gstore
3Gstore is thrilled to announce our new hosting service that allows you to bond multiple internet connections with minimal equipment and easy setup: SimplyBonding. Unlike failover or load balancing, a bonded connection takes multiple internet connections and COMBINES them. The resulting connection is both faster and more reliable: if you have 3 internet connections that are bonded together and one goes down, your connected devices and apps will never know there was a failure – even apps that maintain persistent connections!

What is bonding?

When businesses need a more reliable internet connection, they often turn to Failover or Load Balancing, features familiar to many users and available on a variety of consumer and enterprise grade routers. Failover routers have the ability to switch over to a secondary connection when one internet connection goes down, but you lose the connection during the switchover (and again when the primary connection comes up again and it switches back), and failover doesn’t help with connection speeds. Load Balancing routers split the traffic load amongst multiple internet connections, but they do not aid in reliability or increase speed. Failover and load balancing are useful features, but they are NOT the same as bonding.
A bonded connection takes multiple internet connections and COMBINES them to create a faster and more reliable stream. The concept of bonding (AKA aggregating) internet connections has been around for years, but it has historically been prohibitively expensive and very complicated to deploy and manage. SimplyBonding solves both of those problems!

HARDWARE: Turn off the Caps Lock key

Stop Yelling – Turn Off The Caps Lock Key On Your Mac [OS X Tips]

Rob LeFebvre (6:00 am PDT, Sep 23rd 2013)

# – # – # – # – #   

Gal Pal’s Mom, on a Windoze implementation, for the n-th time, had the caps lock on while typing her password for AOL.

(Yeah, I know, who knew AOL was still business.)

So, Gal Pal asked me how to permanently disable it.

Easy peasy.

Then I go to think of all the times I inadvertently did the same thing.

So I found out how to turn it off on the Mac OS X.

Easier!

Done.
