Facebook is launching a resource to help you spot false news and misleading information that spreads on its service.

The resource, similar to previous efforts around privacy and security, is basically a notification that pops up for a few days. Clicking on it takes you to tips and other information on how to spot false news and what to do about it.

Facebook is adding more Snapchat-like features to its app. The company says it wants to let your camera "do the talking" as more people are posting photos and videos instead of blocks of text.

Facebook is rolling out an app update starting Tuesday. With it, you can tap a new camera icon on the top left corner. That opens up the phone's camera to do a photo or video post. You could have posted photos from the app before, but it took an extra tap.

Normally I would give you tech tips/advice, but this time I thought I would do something a little different. I work on lots of computers and it's common that people customize their computer with a wallpaper image of cute little Johnny or a picture of their favorite place. With my job here at MyBizNow, graphic design is what takes up most of my time. One thing I will often do for my clients is to make them a custom wallpaper for their personal use. Usually this is after I have designed a logo or developed a website for their business. Living here in San Tan Valley, you can take a lot of pictures that would be worthy of a postcard to send to friends or family outside of our area to rub-in how great the weather is year round.

Have you ever accidentally deleted the files on your digital camera? I know many of us have done this. It's not like you can just re-do that cross country trip with little Rusty & Audrey.

I was recently reminded of the sinking feeling one gets while I was speaking to a customer on the phone. While explaining how to take better photos with the digital camera, I recommended that he make some room on his memory card since the new settings use more space/memory. Instead of moving the pictures to the PC, he had just deleted all. At first there was a long awkward silence.

Technology isn't killing you, but your habits using it just might. I'm not talking about the obvious texting while driving. By the way, NEVER TEXT WHILE DRIVING! I am referring to my previous post "Use your computer to shed pounds". While that was more about the benefits of using a standing desk, this infographic by Medical Billing and Coding shows how the standing desk might not be such a crazy thing after all.

 

Have you ever tried to send a large file by email?  If it is a picture being sent to a loved one or those important late documents to your boss, then you know just how stressful it can be. When you attach that large file to your email and hit send, you may think that your computer is frozen because of having to wait so long for it to say "Send Complete". Finally when it does complete you have a sigh of relief until you check your incoming mail to see a message that reads "REJECTED" due to your internet service provider not allowing anything over 5 megabytes in size to be sent. With pictures, most of the time you could send 1 at a time, or reduce the size/quality of the pics to send without issue. Maybe you could do this with other documents also, but why when there are better options?

This is not anything new, but I am surprised how many people still don’t know about this one. I am going to help you get the most out of the real estate on your monitor and focus on what you want to see. Are search toolbars and favorites getting in your way browsing the web and being productive? Yes, if you have 3,4,and 5 toolbars at the top of Internet Explorer you should probably uninstall them.

If you would rather not, you can simply locate the F11 key on your keyboard and press it. Instantly you gained inches (on your monitor)!

Me: I lost 60 lbs. while using the computer.
Actor Billy Crystal: “That’s a Backstreet Boy!

No I was not running sprints around the block with my laptop in hand, and I didn’t really lose 60lbs.  This latest read however leads me to believe that maybe that isn't such a crazy thought.  Maybe I could lose some weight while working.

I'm sure most of you have seen people using inflated exercise balls as a chair to loose extra pounds and improve posture.  But have you ever heard of a “Standing Desk”?

I recently had a customer, John, ask me about Blu-ray movies.  He was wondering if it was worth it for him to upgrade to a Blu-ray player for better viewing or was it just all hype to spend more money.

Well I have to tell you, it is worth it, but only if you have a high definition television.
