Microsoft Windows 8 Video Tutorial (Preview)

Windows 8 Basics Video Tutorial Preview

Here’s another preview of one of the Club Noobie DVD Video Tutorials, Windows 8 Basics. These DVD tutorials are mailed directly to all Club Noobie Platinum members’ homes each month. They are also sold individually in Noobie’s online store. The better deal, of course, is to receive them through the Club Noobie membership as the cost is far less and includes other goodies such as the Noobie Unplugged newsletter, a Tech Talk Audio Series CD, a tip sheet and what I call the product of the month, which

When cell phone etiquette policies backfire

Best Classroom April Fools Prank Ever

Last week I talked about cell phone etiquette in my blog post and told everyone to do us all a favor and get off your cell phone. Since then, I’ve learned about a professor in Grand Rapids, Michigan who has a policy that if your cell phone rings during his class, you have to answer the call on speakerphone. I’m sure the professor was well-intended with his policy. I’m also equally sure he never saw his student’s April Fool’s joke coming. Watch and enjoy. If you can not

Could you survive 50 yawns in a row?

Yawn-o-Meter

I admit it. Sharing this video is just darn-right cruel. But that’s what makes it so share-able. The video is a yawn-o-meter and it shows person after person after person (50 in total) yawning in an attempt to get you to yawn. Each yawn attempt is numbered so you can keep track of when you finally give in and produce a yawn of your own. It killed me but somehow I made it to the end without yawning. Although I’m pretty sure I yawned afterwards just to get

GoPro HERO3+ Silver Edition: Custom made for the outdoor enthusiast [REVIEW]

GoPro HERO3+ Silver Edition

You have to admire a company that knows who its audience is. The GoPro HERO3+ camera wasn’t designed to film your child’s birthday party. In fact, it wasn’t really designed to film anyone at all. Instead, the GoPro was designed for the outdoor enthusiast who wants to record their own point of view while doing the things they love—like skiing down a mountain, biking off-road or jumping out of an airplane. Brackets and mounts galore The first thing I noticed about the GoPro HERO3+ Silver Edition (the one

Not to be outdone by Amazon’s announcement that drones could potentially be used to deliver packages in the future, Netflix has announced their own Drone2Home program.

How many of these conference call blunders have happened to you?

What makes the video funny is that it shows a live in-person meeting played out as if it were a conference call. And if you think the blunders are funny on a conference call,

Moto X: Smaller-sized Android smartphone with unique features [REVIEW]

Motorola Moto X

I’m spoiled by the large screen size on my Samsung Galaxy S4. So much that I really struggle to use the someone’s iPhone when they hand it to me. I just can’t go back to that smaller screen size. So when I was given a Motorola Moto X to review, the first thing I noticed was how small it was—about the same size as the iPhone. I knew right there that I personally wouldn’t like it but, in the interest of my audience, I decided to plow ahead

Hey mom and dad, maybe video games aren’t so bad after all

Can video games make your smart?

If you can not see the embedded video above please use the following link: Can Video Games Make You Smarter? This one’s for all of you who think that kids these days are wasting away their minds playing video games all day. While there may be some truth to that, you might be surprised what other effects video games may be having on our kids. Could they (shock) be making them smarter? I’m not surprised at all by this. In fact, I’ve often thought video games should be
