    Windows Phone

    I know phones are not a big discussion point on these forums but thought I'd mention we've just ourselves a new Nokia Lumina 920 mobile phone. Still a little hard to come by here in Oz. Anyway very happy with it's performance, it was relatively easy to set up though perhaps not quite as easy as...

    SOLVED Windows Live & Skydrive.

    Ok. by a roundabout way (why are some things so needlessly tedious) I've managed to get Skydrive registered under my primary email address. I'm not game to try starting MSN Messenger again in case it makes it default back to the old Hotmail addy.

    SOLVED Windows Live & Skydrive.

    Could not quite classify my query so tossed it in here, more a Microsoft query then a Windows 7 one. Okay so we got ourselves new Nokia mobile phones and want to set up skydrive for cloud saving of data. Now the missue had no issue setting up windows live account and skydrive as she'd never had...

    USB HUBS

    I'm running a Manhattan one. No issues at all. Bought it not long after I switched to Win7.

    Saying Hi to all the old hands.

    Goodaye Clifford, nice to hear from you as well. I cant see myself changing to Win8 unless I had to get a new monitor that was touch enabled and even then I think I'd just go for a larger screen size. My UPS has saved the computer from a few power outages and blinks now so has really paid for...

    which is the best anti-virus?

    I'm still using Eset Node32. Been one of the most reliable anti-virus suites I've ever tried.

    Saying Hi to all the old hands.

    I almost never get on here anymore. My win 7 machine runs so well and I've changed so little on it in the last 18 months I've just had no need to do anything. Once a month thereabouts I back up my 2 HDD's. It's all been so reliable that if anything stopped working now I'd really have to scratch...

    Paypal Alert.

    ALERT, ALERT. Pass this on to anyone you know who uses Paypal for online purchases. This evening in the space of 1 minute 4 individual transactions to four different names accessed my paypal account. All for the same amount of $194 US. I'm now out of pocket for over $700 and Paypal can take up...

    Opinions on an ASUS Ultrabook. Zen

    Prey looks interesting Bill. I wonder though would it work here in Australia? Finally got the ASUS to wirelessly connect to my router. Go figure, they say doing the same thing again and again gets the same result but then suddenly it connected and with a bit fine of tuning has been staying...

    Opinions on an ASUS Ultrabook. Zen

    Yeah it found the router (Fritzbox) straight away. However unlike with our mobile phones, my old imacs and the dongle in my other pc just putting in the id code from the back of the router fails to connect it. That's never happened before.

    Opinions on an ASUS Ultrabook. Zen

    Thanks for the comments guys. As to hospital, yeah things 'grow legs' as they say but I'd never leave stuff like that in my room. I'd hand it to the nurses station to lock in their cupboard. The hospital does have some WiFi but not everywhere and by getting a pre-paid dongle we can use it in the...

    Opinions on an ASUS Ultrabook. Zen

    I'll be going into hospital for an extended stay. I was going to get a tablet, either ipad 2 or something running Android (probably a Samsung). Then I was shown these things called Ultrabook from ASUS. It's closest comparison might be a Mac Book air in appearance but it runs WIN7 Home Premium...

    Colour Rendering with different programs.

    I re-booted after the first thing I tried which was the control panel settings.. Not re-booted since I used fix it. I'll do that a bit later and report back how it went.
