Clean your App Permissions

 Try guessing how many apps have permissions to access your private information... Like yesterday's email notifications, we will discuss applications and all the permission you give when signing into websites, for example. This doesn't actually change any permissions. The webpage just give you quick links to go through, review, and modify the settings in your social network. There is even a link to have an email reminder. Give it a try! 

Clean Up Your Notifications

  OK.  On any giving day I used to get hundreds of email notifications. Why do I need so many? I don't, really.  I am on many of the social networks daily.  But it takes time to change all those different sites.. or does it. I was browsing on Pinterest (feel free to follow me!) and I found this really cool tech website. It is worth sharing! You can modify your notifications with the click of a button on the website. Simple, convenient and amazing. Drop on by and reduce your email overload!☺

The PC Planetarium

Photo credit: Irish_Eyes from "The sky is the ultimate art gallery just above us." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882) When I was a child, my great-grandfather showed me constellations and the planets. Only a few actually are imbedded in my memory, but the experience will last throughout my lifetime. If you are out camping, traveling or in your own backyard, taking time to view the night sky, a window into the omniscience of God . Stellarium is a free planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope.  Just set your coordinates and go.

Containing Cords

So, I can't find my cell phone charger cord. It fell behind my desk once again. Now I have to crawl around on the floor to find it.. UGH! There must be a better way! So on the hunt, awed by some really cool gadgets. The first one I found was by Quirky. This little gismo, called the Cordies Desktop Cable Management sits on your desktop and holds your cables so they don't fall.  This one doesn't physically attach to your desk. This desktop accessory comes in blue, grey, pink and white.  It has a weighted base to help stabilize it and it will hold most of your smaller cables such as audio cables, iPod and cell phone chargers. Reviews seem to feel it needs a little more weight.  A little pricey for me at $12.99 but it's an option.  Next I looked at the Blue Lounge Design CD-BL CableDrop Cable Management System. I really liked the look of these with your choice of basic black, muted or bright colors. These attached with adhesive. Unless it is a 3M, I get nervous
