  2. PlayoffsBracket.com - track the playoff brackets, the quest for a championship season for the NBA, NHL, MLB, NFL, NCAA, and World Cup of Soccer. Some prior years' brackets are also accessible for each sport. Very useful reference if you follow major league sports and the NCAA.

  6. Yuku.com - a free Web "forum" hosting resource that is ad supported. You can start off featuring your own Web "discussion" forums for free, and, then upgrade inexpensively to an ad-free version.
  7. DuckDuckGo.com - the search engine that doesn't track you. DuckDuckGo does not collect or share personal information. That is their privacy policy in a nutshell. Read more about their "DuckDuckGo.com privacy policy".
  8. Linphone.org - Linphone (since 2001) - is an open source Voice Over IP phone (or SIP phone) that makes possible to communicate freely with people over the internet, with voice, video, and text instant messaging.
  9. WhisperSystems.org - private messaging and private calling for iPhones [iOS] and Android phones. Their "Signal" app is popular for both phone platforms: Android and iOS (see Tom's Guide article link below - Signal is listed). Also visit: crypto.cat - "Cryptocat" is free software to Chat securely and in privacy online.
  10. Lifewire.com - Tech Untangled; a resource that features "how to" guides & tutorials for a wide variety of technologies such as Windows PC's, Apple Macs, iPad, iPod, iPhone, networking, digital cameras, home theaters and more.
  11. DoNotCall.gov - National Do Not Call Registry - Wisconsin now uses this - but here is Wisconsin's DoNotCall Web resource: Wisconsin Do Not Call Registry. Also visit: How to report unwanted calls.
  12. How to Stop Unwanted Calls on Your Cell Phone or Landline: Lifewire.com article, HowToGeek.com article, and PCMag.com article.
  13. Another resource to check out for Cell Phone/PC/Online privacy and security apps (software) that includes secure & encrypted chat, messaging, calling; plus password managers, Web browsing in privacy, and more is: Tom's Guide article. I use "CM Security" on my Samsung Android powered phone to screen and block almost every annoying "telemarketer" incoming cell phone call. Please note ---> that this is not an endorsement by me; it works ok but is not without its own quirks. Use it at your own risk.
  14. Troubleshooting Windows 10 printer problemsLast show's tip on how to fix common Windows 10 printer problems (it is not you - it is Microsoft that keeps having trouble!.


  15. *** Some Extras listed below ***

  16. *****macrium.com - another backup software program; also has ghosting feature (duplicating "drives" - especially hard drives - check out their FREE version of their "Macrium Reflect" software.
  17. ****Classic Shell ---> This is a Windows 8 "free utility" to make it look more like Windows-7 or Windows XP. I have used it a few times on Windows 8 systems; and, it has worked well for me. Good luck!

  18. Peter Greene's Selection of Most Popular Applications (Apps) - Software

  19. Microsoft "Office" - remember Visicalc? WordStar? WordPerfect? Lotus 1-2-3? Multiplan? Also now: "Google Docs"
  20. Adobe's "Photoshop" - they are also known for their "Creative Suite". Related - remember Corel Draw? Saw money and use "Google's Picasa".
  21. "Google's Gmail". Also: Yahoo Mail, AOL, Outlook by Microsoft, Windows Live Mail (by Microsoft), Apple Mail.
  22. "Google Maps" or just using your smartphone for a GPS [Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based satellite navigation system]. Remember MapQuest?
  23. Google's "YouTube". Along with "Twitter", "Pinterest" and "Facebook" you are a social butterfly. Remember "MySpace"?.
  24. "eBay" - connects buyer's and seller's from all over the world.
  25. "Speedtest.net" by Ookla; just nice to know how face your Internet connection really is. I have been using this for years and really appreciate it!
  26. "Skype" (for traveling) - it has changed hands (owners) a few times. So the rules / costs might change just like cell phone plans do!
  27. "WhatsApp" (for traveling) - also handy for travelling outside the U.S.
  28. Apple's "iTunes". If you own an Apple product then you pretty much have to use it. But don't forget this handy app --->"i-FunBox" [I like the classic version]
  29. The "Staples": Operating Systems: Free"Ubuntu" and paid for version such as Apple's OSX (Yeosemite) and Microsoft Windows 8.1 (I still like 7 over 8). I think OSX runs better and if you hate doing backups you can't beat TimeMachine in OSX. Under the hood Apple's OSX really is a version of Unix; and Linux (Ubuntu, Redhat and others) is also a version of Unix.
  30. The other Staples: Web browser - Mozilla's "FireFox". And the others: Microsoft's Internet Explorer, Chrome, Apple's Safari.

  31. *** Below are last month's choices ****

  32. technet.microsoft.com - Microsoft's technical support resource - very useful for troubleshooting any of Microsoft's products.
  33. garden.org - a searchable, valuable gardening resource. Access and search their "gardening articles - https://garden.org/articles/".
  34. activesustainability.com - learn and share about sustainability.
  35. travelandleisure.com - a great travel resource to visit; they post their 50 Best Places to Travel in 2017. Also visit their "travel guides" -http://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-guide.
  36. healthcentral.com - great searchable resource for health related issues.
  37. discovertheforest.org - federal government resource about our national parks and forests. Lots of useful information on how to utilize them.

  42. CNET.com - as mentioned many times by me over the years along with these others useful Web resources. Do your research to check out reviews of technology and computer products. Read the reviews to see if you can find out not only about how the products perform but also get ideas about what other products you should also be considering too! Also visit: engadget.com, pcmag.com and computershopper.com


  43. *** Some Extras listed below ***
  44. *****macrium.com - another backup software program; also has ghosting feature (duplicating "drives" - especially hard drives - check out their FREE version of their "Macrium Reflect" software.
  45. ****Classic Shell ---> This is a Windows 8 "free utility" to make it look more like Windows-7 or Windows XP. I have used it a few times on Windows 8 systems; and, it has worked well for me. Good luck!


  46. As discussed on a previous show - I have listed resources to help you search for access to public information, and, information that may be purchased.

    Note: I have no affiliation or am I making any endorsement for use of these resources; just pointing out examples to access this kind of information on the Internet and World Wide Web. I tried to group the resources together as best as possible.

    Keep in mind that even though you may sign-up to be a member of a Web site - that some of your information, such as a "user name" for your membership may be accessible outside of that resource by search engines such as Google.com (this also includes images). So you may want to change your use of your "user name" across multiple sites; similar to changing your use of the same passwords to protect yourself. Or it is a question to ask yourself - how visible or invisible do I want to be online? If you associate your name (even a nickname or alias and someone knows it) with a face then you are visible.

    A way to save money - sign-up for a trial account that may give you "a 7-day window to use the service" if you pay the annual fee; however, make sure you note the cancellation date or you may end-up paying for the entire year!


    Google.com [make sure you check out their "Other Products Page"] , Google's Image search, YouTube.com (part of Google), and Google's Plus (similar to Facebook); note Google makes money by selling advertising - they make this statement as related to Google Plus - "'Google may use my account information to personalize +1s on content and ads on non-Google web sites.'"
    Yahoo.com and Bing.com two other search engines to work with that are also popular.
    Facebook has become popular not only for individuals but business and organizations to use as a social media marketing tool to gain popularity.
    LinkedIn - typically considered for business professional but also used by others.
    MySpace - was more popular before Facebook but still used by individuals. Another social connectivity resource like facebook.
    Twitter - a social networking tool - find out what’s happening, right now, with the people and organizations you are interested in (if they tweet !!!).
    Manta.com - business community where you can find out more detailed information on a business and its contacts.
    Bizapedia.com - provides free online company search and people search tools.
    CorporationWiki.com - information on 37+ million Companies and 35+ million executive.
    Netprospex.com - helps Business-to-Business companies discover and connect with millions of targeted sales prospects. Find verified contact information, including email, phone, and social media.
    LookUpAnyone.com and PublicRecords.com - comprehensive people search resources to use; costs/fees to access (I have no experience with them).
    pipl.com - search engine that claims to be the "most comprehensive people search on the Web"; dive into the deep Web to bring you results you won't find in any other search engine then we use a powerful identity resolution engine to link those seemingly disparate results into a set of meaningful profiles so you can easily find the person you are looking for.
    Radaris - another comprehensive people search resource to use.
    Spoke.com - another comprehensive people search resource to use.
    SocialDiligence.com - a social media search tool.
    Ancestry.com - looking for close relatives, family tree, divorce, marriage, birth, death records?
    Archives.com - claims to have an extensive database of images, newspapers, vital records, and more for your ancestors' historical records.
    Areaconnect.com - a resource that has access to local Yellow Pages, White Pages, search, directories, news, weather and more.
    411.info - looking for phone numbers, addresses, reverse look-ups?
