MMeM, Vol. 10 Issue 34 – YIKES

…I have GOT to be missing something.

I love to learn new things. I like to pick up new innovative ways to do things. Or find out about nifty ways of getting something done. Because, I’m pretty confident that I don’t always realize things on my own. It’s a pretty safe assumption I’ve learned in my case.

So the other day I was catching up on news stories about Ebola, ISIS, the 2014 mid-term elections, just your usual run-of-the mill cheerful daily lift-you-up kind of stuff. For some reason I found myself on FoxNews. While I was scanning down the page, I saw a small widget talking about “7 things you didn’t know your Web browser could do“. I thought “Ah HAH!” That’s right up my alley. I’ll have to check that out and see what I can pick up real quick.

New Picture (2)


Well, hold onto your horses and let me summarize the 7 things for you real quick.

  1. Choose your home page
  2. Pin tabs
  3. Middle-click to open tabs
  4. Zoom text
  5. Browse privately
  6. See if your browser needs updating
  7. See your online accounts and passwords

Can’t contain your amazement can you? Yeah, me either. How, does this make the main page of a major media site in 2014?

Seriously. I have GOT to be missing something.

Yo, u have no events scheduled for today.

With all of today’s distractions, text messages, emails, tweets, bills, appointments, etc. There is one occasion that I personally welcome and appreciate.

It’s when I get up in the morning, check my nerve agitator, err email, and see this message:



“yo u have no events scheduled today”

I love how Google and Apple can’t play nice together… “YO, U have no events…” But, I guess I like the effect of the forced ebonics.

MMeM, Vol. 9 Issue 89 – I get it.

YES, I trust this computer .Again.Still.It’s mine.

I really wish it was possible for Apple and it’s iPhone to remember that my computer is safe with which to be connected. I’m sure that there is something I could do in the labyrinth of network and safety/identity settings to stop this but I’m too tired to research it. I’m also sure that this issue is somehow related to the fact that one of my über security services causes this by continually erasing some cookie or something, but please.


<drumroll> So, for the 68th time, YES, I trust this computer.
