It's About Time!

Listen To Your MP3 Player Or iPod Through Your Car Stereo!!

Get More BANG! Out of Your MP3 Player Or iPod!!!

Maximize How And Where You Can Play It! (Now that's smart!!)

FM Transmitter

It's Never Been Easier - Or Cheaper - To Do It!

OUCH!! Don't Pay $80 Somewhere Else For Something Like This!

Dirt Cheap Price On A Top-Of-The-Line Belkin!!! WOW!

MP3 players and iPods are great! You can store a ton of your favorite tunes on 'em and then take it wherever you go! The only thing I don't like about them is, "What about when you're in your car?" You can have the greatest car stereo system in the world but, "Who cares?". You can't plug your MP3 player in and listen to it through your car stereo system, right? WRONG!!! With this little bugger you can!!! Once you try this, you're never gonna want to leave home without your TuneCast II by Belkin!

This thing is so simple to operate even Homer Simpson couldn't screw it up! (OK, let me re-think that! It does have three buttons..."Menu", "Up" and "Down" you never know! But for the "average" person, it's a piece of cake!)

Check this out - it's a quick 3 step process!!!

Step 1:
Plug your MP3 player / iPod / CD Player (or any portable device with a 3.5 mm audio jack) into the TuneCast

Step 2:
Find a nice clear, empty channel on your car stereo (just looking for static with no music).

Step 3:
Simply tune your TuneCast to that station with the simple "Up" or "Down" buttons! 

That's it! Hit PLAY on your MP3 Player or iPod and just kick back and enjoy your music! That's it! Really...that's it! It's THAT simple!

Oh, and get this! The TuneCast II has a cool, "auto" ON/OFF function so you don't have to turn it on every time you want to listen to music! Here's how it works - once an audio signal is detected through your MP3 player or iPod (or whatever you have attached), the TuneCast II will turn on automatically. Shut your music player off and 60 seconds later the TuneCast turns off too - again, ALL automatically! Pretty smart, heh?

If you do a lot of traveling over a wide area, you'll love this feature: you can PRESET up to four FM frequencies, so you'll have easy access to 4 empty channels right at your finger tips!

Oh, and if you haven't noticed, it's made by Belkin! (A great name in the field of computer and electronic components!)

Here's another neat thing about it: You don't even need to plug it into into your cigarette lighter because it operates on (2) AAA batteries (not included). So you don't have to choose between charging your cell phone or listening to can do both at the same time!! (It even has a Low-battery LED indicator to make life easy for you!)

And another thing, the TuneCast II is compact (only 3" long x 2" high) so it won't take up your whole dashboard!!!

Oh, and I saved the best part for last: Do you have a "kick-butt" stereo system at home? Well guess what? You can use this TuneCast II to play your MP3 player through your home stereo system, too!!! Yeah, just use it the same way as you do in your car! Bring it in and put it close to your stereo system (about 10 feet or so), find an unused station and "Yeah, baby!!! You've got tunes from your MP3 player running through your home stereo system!!! Now seriously, what's that worth?? Probably a lot, but you won't have to pay a lot to have all that sound and convenience! Nope...not here...not right now!

We've got this TuneCast II runnin' as a special today for (get this...) just $12.97 and US shipping is FREE!!!

P.S. - This 'lil TuneCast II is so cool and so versatile, once you've tried it, you'd be happy to pay 10 times more for it because it'll give you so much more enjoyment out of your MP3 player or iPod (and you can easily pay $80+ for similar units - trust me, I know from bitter experience)!! So why not grab one now and save a bunch?

WHHHOOO!!! Everyone's Grabbin' It!

Stop Wasting Your Money!!!

Don't Guess...Test!!

NEVER Throw Away Good Batteries Again!

The Fantastic, Fun Tester That Pays For Itself!

You are in the middle of watching the big game on Sunday and during the commercial break you flip to the other station to check out a few more scores, then as you go to flip back to your game- the remote dies. GRRRRRRRRR! So what do you do? Get up, go to the junk drawer to see if you have any spare batteries, right? Of course, you find probably 10 batteries scattered across the bottom of the drawer, but you don't know if any of those batteries work, and now you know you are missing out on valuable game time!!!

I don't know about you, but I really do NOT like having to rummage thru a bunch of batteries "guessing" which was still have power and which ones don't! NOT a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon, or any time of day for that matter!!! So don't go through all of that aggravation! Check out this great little battery tester that will save you a TON of time and frustration!!

This Battery Tester makes it FAST AND EASY to use so you can find out which batteries are good and which one's aren't! Just connect the battery to the negative and positive poles of the battery tester and the easy to read gauge will automatically let you know if that battery has power!

And this works with AA, AAA, C, D, N, 9 volt or even a 1.5 volt batteries! No need for separate testers - this one does it all!!!

Keep the battery tester on your keychain or conveniently store this handy compact device in your kitchen, home office, garage, etc.  Now you can be sure that your kids toys, your gadgets, and other equipment stay powered when you want to use them! Finally!

Now what you'll be able to do is go through ALL OF THOSE BATTERIES you've got laying around and test 'em. Toss out the bad and keep the good ones! Now you won't be wasting any more time in the future when you may be faced with an emergency and you don't have time to spare!!!

And guess what? Unlike a lot of other testers, this does NOT NEED A BATTERY IN ORDER TO OPERATE!!! Now THAT'S good news!!!

And this will surprise you: this battery tester is only 1.89 inches x 3.15 inches! WOW!!! That's small enough to keep on your key chain or in the garage, office and ESPECIALLY THE KITCHEN (that's where I keep my batteries!!!)

So do yourself a favor and stop wondering if those darn batteries that have been sitting in the closet for a long time are still fully charged and order your tester for Only $8.97 and US Shipping is Free!

Think about it - it sure doesn't take too many accidentally thrown-away batteries for this to pay for itself! This one's a no-brainer for sure!!

Psst - Just a "heads-up"...quantities are VERY limited on this one so jump on this right away!!

Price returns to $12.97 soon! RUN to the site and get yours now!

Computers 101

I have one of those USB "thumb drives" and when I plug it in Windows assigns a drive letter. Is there a way I can give it a name instead?

USB "thumb drives" are becoming more popular (and more affordable). Some are the size of your finger and can hold the same amount of data as a DVD or even more!

Each time you plug it in, your PC assigns a drive letter automatically—but what if you want it to have a name?

If you have Windows XP, just double click "My Computer", right-click the drive letter and select "Properties".

If you use Vista, go to Start>Computer, right-click on the drive letter the corresponds to your thumb drive and select "Properties".

Type in the new name then click OK.


This can also be done with USB card readers. Especially with the kind that read several different types of card. You can label each drive according to card type: SM (Smart Media), CF (Compact Flash), etc. When you put your media card in, the name will come up so you know which drive letter has the card in it.

MS Office

It's On the List

So, you've found yourself once again entering a bunch of text into an Excel worksheet… and once again, the text is getting repetitive.

Let's say that you've got a list of employees and need to enter the department they work in for each one. This means that you're in column B typing the same things over and over again - after all, there are a finite number of departments and multiple people work in each one.

Now, I know that when you begin to type text into Excel it tries to match it up with text already in the column, allowing you to hit the Enter key and let Excel finish the typing - assuming it was the text you needed.

A very helpful feature… most of the time. But when your text is similar and starts with the same string of letters you're forced to type quite a lot each time before Excel can figure out which one you need.

Is there a way around all the duplicated efforts?

Why, yes there is… why else would I ask?

Next time, with an empty cell selected, try Alt + the down arrow.

You'll find that a drop down list of the text already entered into the column will appear.

At this point it's just a matter of letting go of the Alt key and using the arrow key to move through the list.

Once you've highlighted the entry you need hit the Enter key.

Voila! Repetitive text entered, no actual typing required.

The Software You WISH Windows Included!

That's No Way To Manage Your Files!

Go From A Frustrated User To A POWER User In Minutes!

The Most Amazing Software You Can Install For Windows!

FINALLY - Windows The Way It's Supposed To Be!

When it comes to file management (you know, organizing your files with My Computer or Windows Explorer), people tend to cringe a little. They KNOW they've just hopped on the express train to frustrationville! You know how it is, using "My Computer" and "Windows Explorer", well it, ummm, well it kind of sucks, really. No way else to say it. They are just a little (OK a lot) lacking, ya know? 

Wish there was something better? 

Much easier to use?

More powerful? 

With LOTS of features that just blow everything else away? 

Well, I have the program we've all been dreaming of! It's called Power Desk and this thing absolutely, positively ROCKS!

Try it just ONCE and you'll wonder how you've lived without it!

OK, first off, you use this instead of Windows Explorer or My Computer! Why? Power Desk makes doing anything and everything with your files 10X easier! Microsoft could learn a thing or two from these guys! Check out the screen capture below, notice that it opens with not one but TWO file panes (and that super-cool preview pane on the right)? You can completely drag and drop between everything you see on that screen! Go from pane to pane, or back and forth between the same pane - hey - whatever works for you! You've never used a system this flexible! Amazing is an understatement! Once you start using it, you'll never go back!

OK, now that's a pretty cool start, but just wait till you see what else incredible software this can do! This also includes an entire suite of amazing file management tools! If you want to get the most out of your PC, get ready to fall head-over-heels in love!

Just check out this overview!

Move, copy, zip, label, color code, search, view, prioritize, convert and view your files quickly and easily.
Amazing Preview Pane shows you the contents of any file you click
Fantastic Search feature makes finding files fast and simple with better results than Windows Explorer
ynchronize files between two drives or even between your laptop and desktop
Size Manager makes it easy to see where your largest files are located and eliminate wasted space
Work with compressed files of any format, even create self-extracting Zip archives
FTP files to a webserver with the easy to use built in FTP client
Securely delete files
Password protect files and zip archives
Use dual file manager panes for quicker and easier file management |
Improved command line over Windows
Prioritizes and organizes files with color coded file folders
Offer the option to add notes/tips to your files
Gives file-type specific information about a file (i.e. size and format of images, song name for MP3s, etc.)

I'm going to start with my absolute FAVORITE feature! It's a preview pane and it's the one thing that seriously missing from Windows! How's it work? Easy - simply enable the plane (it's a quick on and off), then click a file. A preview of that file will show up in the preview pane! It's amazingly handy - I mean, have you ever been sorting through a folder full of files and thought, "Gee I wonder what that is?" With this, the answer is just a click away! 

Power Desk 6 Professional

This can preview just about everything too - we're talkin' almost any kind of photo (jpegs, gif, even Photoshop PSD files - I couldn't find anything it couldn't preview), office documents (word, excel, etc), text files, HTML files, PDFs, just about anything you can think of! We're talking a whoppin' 150 different file types! WOW!! This one feature alone is easily worth the price of the software, but it gets even better!

Ever misplace a file? Windows has a hard time finding it again, ya know? Well, just wait till you try the outstanding File Search feature inside of this program! You can locate files by name, date, size, path, contents, type - and much more! Heck, it can even find MP3 files based on title or artist name - now that's power! This is easily the BEST search I've ever seen for windows - I promise, you'll be BLOWN AWAY when you try it!

This also includes an amazing File Synchronizer that you're absolutely gonna LOVE! If you have two folders you need to keep synchronized (say one on an external HD, one on your computer's HD - like a backup maybe), then you can use this to make sure the files are always up to date on BOTH drives! Not only that, you can use this to synchronize your laptop and desktop files - now THAT'S handy! On, and TONS of copy options too - you can duplicate files, copy newer files, copy older files, move files (add them) - whatever - from either direction! Amazing (and really easy to use too)!

Oh, and just wait till you check out the Size Manager - a quick click of the mouse shows you where all the space on your hard drive is going! Makes it fast and easy to track down wasted space and fix the problem - I found all kinds of excess junk and freed up several GIGs of space on my system!

This also includes an absolutely outstanding ZIP program for compressing and storing files (password protection, self extracting - it's sweet), it has an FTP program for transferring files to a webserver that I personally just LOVE (the images you see here were transferred with it in fact), and even has an amazing music and photo management system! WOW!!

Power Desk 6 Professional

PLUS - it keeps you safe too! It has a file shredder that makes deleted files unrecoverable, has a file encrypter so only YOU can have access to sensitive files, and can even password protect your zip files! You could easily pay 2X the amount we're asking for this software JUST for a program that does does this kind of security! WHEW! This thing is LOADED!

OK, if you want the best file management system on the planet, you've gotta grab this! I am completely impressed and would NEVER go back to Windows Explorer after using this for just a few days! It's hands-down the best way to go!

Your cost? Just $14.97 and US shipping is FREE! Don't pay $40 for this somewhere else! I tell ya, it's worth every cent of that $14.97, that's for sure! Wait till you try it - you'll wonder how you got along without it!

PS - WARNING - Only a limited number of these available! Better act fast if you want in on this jaw-droppin' deal!

Tip of the Day

File Naming Rules

Do you do a lot of work with documents that constantly have to be saved? Well, if you do, you should know that the first time you save a file, you should choose a "file name" for it to be stored under. Note that some programs will automatically put a file name in for you, but it is much better if you name your own files. That way, you have a better chance of finding them later on.

The first time you save your work, you should use the Save As command to tell your computer what "file name" you want to save your work in. (In some programs, if you use the Save command, the first time you save, it will act as if you clicked on the Save As command anyway, but this is only in some programs. So, all in all, you should develop a habit of using the Save As command the first time you save a new file). The Save As and Save commands are usually under the File menu as well.

So, when you are typing a new document in your word processing program, the first time you go to save it, click on File to bring the menu down and then click on Save As to bring its dialogue box up.

In the Save As dialogue box, you can tell your computer where to put your file and what to call it. I won't get into where to put your file here, except to say that if the computer is putting your files in the My Documents folder, that is fine for now. You can always go and change it later.

Next, you have to tell your computer what "file name" to save your file under. You should name your file according to what is in it. For example, if it is a letter to your son, John, call it "Letter to John." Don't just name it "Letter." That is too vague. When you name your file (on a computer run with Microsoft Windows), there are some computer requirements.

  • Use letters and/or numbers.
  • Use no punctuation whatsoever, especially no periods.

In fact, your file names can contain some punctuation, but some of the punctuation characters have special meanings to the computer and cannot be used. Your file names can contain apostrophes, dashes, underscores and commas, but it is much easier to remember the rules if you use only letters and/or numbers, while avoiding all punctuation.

You can even use periods, but you should not put periods near the end of the file name or at least, within the last four characters. If you accidentally use a period near the end of your file name, you will probably have trouble getting that file back again later. If this happens, a technician can help you get your file back again, but that's a big pain.

Here are some examples of good file names:

2009 Taxes for Bob Smith
Personal Budget 2008
Car Prices 2009
Investment Notes from June 2007 Course
Daily Weight for John, Starting March 2008
To Do List
Letter to Grandma, February 23, 2009

Note the use of two commas in this last file name. This is okay and it is rather handy, but just be careful not to use periods, especially at the end of your file names.

Here are some examples of bad file names (the problem is listed beside each one):

John This does not say what is in the file (if this is a letter, calculations, genealogy information, etc).
Letter This does not say who it is for.
Letter to John. This has a period at the end of it, which causes problems.
To Do List March 20/09 This file name has a slash ( / ) between the 20 and the 09. The computer will not accept this.
Letter to "Mom" The quotes around Mom will not be accepted by the computer.
Interest * Principal - List of Payments This file has an asterisk ( * ) in it, which the computer will not accept. The dash ( - ) is okay.

So, rather than memorizing all the details and risk having a problem, keep it simple. When you name a file, use only letters and/or numbers, with no punctuation marks. This will make everything easier on you and on your computer!

How to Capture TV Images on your Camera

Sometimes it’s difficult to get pictures of elusive things like celebrities, places and things. Here is where TV can be of great help. And even sometimes, capturing people and places alongside a TV adds that much more color and life to the photo. However, not many of us are able to take pictures that are blur-free and steady. What’s worse are those horizontal scan lines that appear on the picture. Thankfully, with the following tips, you should be able to capture TV images without a bother of any of this.

But first, here are a few things to know:

Horizontal lines: Also called banding, this problem occurs if the TV refreshes at a rate slower than the shutter speed of your camera.

Pixels: If the shutter speed of your camera is too slow, you may end up capturing the blur that appears when the images change on TV. The blur is actually made up of the pixels that show up during the transition of one image to another.

Reflection: The reflection of the camera’s flash or any other source of light can spoil the picture of the TV instantly.

Shakes: An unstable hand can spoil any picture, and if the picture is of the TV screen, the chances of getting a shaky picture are quite high.

Going off color: The settings of your camera, along with the lighting in the room, can cause colours to appear differently on the shot picture.

Tips on how to get your picture right

Getting a good picture of the TV screen revolves around overcoming the above-mentioned problems. Here are some guidelines that will help you click a reasonably good picture of your TV screen.

1.) Adjust your camera’s shutter speed to the refresh rate of the TV. The refresh rate refers to the frequency of the change of image on the screen. Typically, the refresh rate is calculated per second. The refresh rate of the conventional CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) TV is 24. In order to get a seamless picture, try to keep the shutter speed of your camera slightly lower than this. However, make sure the shutter speed is not too low as it may cause a blurred picture.

2.) The ideal situation is that the refresh rate of the television matches the shutter speed of the camera. Try keeping the shutter speed of the camera as close to the refresh rate of the TV as possible.

3.) Adjust the white balance of your camera. The white balance settings of your camera can affect the brightness and the colour of the picture to a great extent. Employ the trial and error method to come up with the correct setting.

4.) Check the lighting in the television’s vicinity. Sources of light like a lamp or an open window can affect the output of the shot to a great extent. Make sure no light reflects on the TV screen and obstructs the view in any way. Also, make sure you and your camera are not being reflected on the screen.

5.) Some expert photographers suggest shooting the TV screen in a dark room with lights switched off and curtains down. This may work sometimes, however, if the image on the TV screen is not generating much light, it is better to have enough light around so that the picture does not come out too dark.

6.) Do not use flash. Using a camera with a flash that can never be disabled is an absolute no-no for clicking an image off the TV screen. The flash will leave a light blot on the image that will replicate itself in the picture spoiling it. Always shut off the flash when you click the TV screen.

7.) Use a tripod. With so many possible obstacles to a good picture of the TV screen, do not add another one with an unstable hand. Use a tripod to keep your camera at one place and shoot calmly so that the picture does not shake.

8.) Try different techniques with different televisions. The same trick will not work for every television. Adjust your camera’s settings every time you come across a different television or if the lighting in the room is different.

9.) Focus on relatively slow images. No matter how much you try, you may not be able to shoot a proper picture of a fast screen. It is better to focus on images that do not move too fast, like the ones showing a landscape, a person’s face or two people in a conversation. Trying to get a good shot of a leopard chasing its prey or an athlete on his track may be a bit of a challenge.

10.) The key to getting a good TV screen capture is to keep trying various settings and environments. The more you try, the better your chances are of getting a good shot.

Best of luck!

The program is called Human Body 360 - DVD Professional Edition, and it's actually THREE Programs In One!!

Anatomy Atlas - High resolution maps of the entire human body. You can pinpoint specific parts of the anatomy and you're guided with accompany text, graphics and animations!

Medical Encyclopedia - A detailed visual encyclopedia loaded with text and illustrations linked together

Illustrated Medical Dictionary - A complete medical dictionary containing over 82,000 entries including 63,000 definitions, 11,000 illustrations, and more than 73,000 audio pronunciations! It's like having a printed dictionary in your computer, except you don't have to reach any farther than your keyboard  to look up the meaning of a word.  Just type in a word into the dictionary search window, or select a word using your mouse, and the dictionary will find the meaning of the word instantly! And the "audio pronunciation feature" reads the word to you so you can hear exactly how to pronounce it correctly!

This a complete guide to the human body and how it works! And what's really cool is that the different programs all work together so you can drill-down and get as much detailed information as you need!

And let me tell you, there's a TON of information here!! Check this out:

Over 500 3-D models and animations

Over 3,000 detailed illustrations and graphics!

All together there's over 5,000 screens that cover virtually everything about the human body!

Human Body

You're gonna love the high resolution images. You can print them out right from each screen!

One feature that I thought was really great is something called, the "X-Ray Viewer"! This lets you see different layers of the body at the same time. Here's a screen shot I took of one of the slides. Sorry the screen shot isn't better, but the graphics in this program are so detailed it's tough to show it with a small screen shot!

Anyway, I brought up one of the illustrations, which was the muscle system. Then I clicked on the "X-Ray viewer", which has a "slider handle" that you just click on and drag up and down. Wherever you have the slide it shows an "X-Ray" view of the part of the body that you have the slider over! So you can look at one illustration, click on the X-Ray viewer and slide it down and now you can see what's "below" the body system you're viewing! I was looking at the muscular system and right around the neck level I clicked on the "X-Ray viewer". So at that point it shows the circulatory system just below where I clicked! Very cool!!!

Here's another feature I liked called, "Virtual Reality" technology lets you move specific anatomical models to view them from a a variety of angles and perspectives. This is one of the 3-D models. Right below the model there's a section with some text that are detailed illustrations you can click on. (Again, I had to make these screen shots small so that I could include them here. The actual photos you see on the program are MUCH larger!) So you can click on an area of the diagram and you quickly zoom-in and get a "close up" view! If you double-click on an area of the photo, it'll bring up a page of text that gives you detailed information about what you're viewing!.

Plus you can click on a navigation arrow and now see the same section of the body from the side. Click again and now you see if from another angle! Cool, heh?

Human Body

There's just so much to this program and so many features, I can't list them all. Hopefully this will give you a taste of why I like this so much! And this retails for $29.99 (and worth every penny) but you don't have to pay that! You've not even going to pay half of that! Because today we've got this hugely popular program for just $9.97 and US shipping is FREE!!! But you better hurry cause these will be gone pretty quick!

Human Body

P.S. If you have teenagers or college students, how much easier would it be for them to use this to help them with their biology homework assignments!!! Are you kidding me?? They'll love it!!

 Golden Canyon

This was taken in Death Valley Nat. Park near the overlook at Zabriski Point. It was early morning and the amazing golden light really turned the already gold-colored hills even more yellow.


Yellow Flower

 Here's an extreme closeup of a yellow lily (OK, could be an orchid - I don't really know), taken last spring.
