My favorite Kindle (Android) Apps

I enjoy my Kindle Fire and even more so some of the apps I have been able to add to it.  Some of my favorites keep me entertained, productive or on time.  Yes, they were all free but always check before you hit the purchase button as things do change. (because I am pretty cheap.)

  1. Webroot Mobile Security - Your kindle is still a computer and as such can be infected. Keep it safe and secure with a security system. 
  2.  Battery Saver 2x - Save battery life, optimize your Kindle and even kills tasks.  This is a valuable app that doesn't take much room.
  3. Evernote - I have blogged about this one before. Love it for holding information I find, pictures, tips and recipes.  Check out this post on the Web Clipper.
  4. Candy Crush - Ok, yes, it is a game I recently started playing. It is a fun and challenging game and I love a challenge.
  5. Twonky Beam - This one is a little more challenging to describe in a small space. Basically, it allows me to stream Youtube, Vimeo, News Channels, TED and much more to my Roku.
  6. Roku - Speaking of the Roku, there is an app allowing me to use my Kindle as a remote control. This is helpful if my husband has the remote on his side of the bed. Now that is truly lazy, right?
  7. Block Out HD - A long term favorite, this is also one of those challenging logic games.
Well, I will save some of my other apps for a future post but these should get your started with your Kindle.

"Hello, This is Bridget (Or Rachel) from Card Holder Services"

When it comes to running a business, the last thing you need is to be inundated with junk phone calls and the number one pest is "Card Holder Services". Matter of fact, the FTC considers "Bridget from Card Holder Services" to be Enemy #1 . Well, the FTC may not have solved this ongoing problem but I have found help from the customer reviews at Amazon.com. I searched online, then narrowed it down to a couple of options. I was very excited when I found the CPR Call Blocker capable of blocking 1200  (yes, 1200) numbers. Robocallers can change their number and I still can block them!  I reduced the robocallers to my business line within a couple of days of adding this device. CPR Call Blocker V108 - 1200 Number Capacity - World #1 - Block Telemarketing Calls Now! (Amazon.com Affiliate Link but personal review without any payment. Just passing on a great tip!) The setup took about 15 minutes for me (some said it only took a couple of minutes in the reviews). The ins

Things you DON'T want on your website

Now, this admission will reveal my age.  I have been a part of designing websites through ~every single aspect~ shown on this infographic chart from Who Is Hosting This . Click here to view the infographic. You may need to click again on the image to make it large enough to read. From gradients to web counters, I have done them all. Take my advice and do not ask me to add these things to your website unless you are wanting a "retro" look. Except maybe drop shadows, I like drop shadows. They may have their place depending on the design.☺

Washable Computer Keyboards

There is almost always a cup of coffee on my desk. Yes, ALWAYS.  But there is a risk. Once a keyboard is wet, it is a gonner.. toast, terminated. When my daughter was much younger, in elementary school, she was home after school and wanted to help clean house so she took my proprietary keyboard from my Amstrad 8086 Dual Floppy computer (now a museum piece). and washed it.  As in, put it in a sink of soapy dish water and washed it.  It was very expensive to replace the micro-controller for that keyboard let me tell you! Well, it isn't really new but there are some washable keyboards on the market now.  Logitech has a the scrubbable, submersible, spill-proof, K310 Keyboard that has pretty good reviews.  Kensington K64407US Pro also has a washable keyboard with anti-microbial protection for a little bit less money.  There are also washable mice but those are usually covered in silicone which I personally would prefer to not hold onto throughout the day. I did find the Seal Sh
