Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760

Powered by light—inside and out

Say good bye to battery hassles, this wireless keyboard is powered by any light low light and lamp light, indoors and out. Fully charged, it works for at least three months even in total darkness.

I purchased the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 from Best Buy around September 2012 and I have nothing but good things to say about it. I love the fact that I do not have to worry about batteries because it runs off of the light in my office.  I also love the fact that I can use it between three of my devices by simply hitting the the quick switch keys. I am able to use it on my iMac, ipad and iPhone by with a simple click of a button. I would highly recommend the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 to anyone looking for a keyboard that will no longer need batteries and the ability to use it between multiple Apple devices.

I would love to here your thoughts on the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760

Magic Jack Call Forwarding Link

I have a few Magic Jack Numbers and for all of them I use the Call forwarding feature a lot, well recently I noticed that when I log in to my magic jack account that the call forwarding link under the call features tab is missing, so I contacted customer service live chat and they provided this link that will direct you to the call forwarding page. I hope this helps https://web06.magicjack.com/my/call-forwarding.html

Magic Jack Closed My Account

Another BIG Disappointment from Magic Jack

Beware of Magic Jack and their shady practices and horrible customer service. Magic Jack has canceled my account for non use and I still had time left that I paid for how can they get away with this?

Magic Jack disappoints once again, well today I found out that a number I had purchased through Magic Jack was deactivated and I had no idea why because I had paid for the service and had about 6 months left, so I contacted Magic Jack through the online chat which is the only way to communicate with this company I have included the chat log below. I use this number for a business I own and never plug it in but rather have the number forwarded to my cell phone and I guess because I have not plugged in my magic for a while they decided to deactivate my number. I do not understand how they an get away with this because I paid for the service and whether or not I use it is completely up to me. My only option was to reactivate a new number and pay for an additional year, so I am writing this to inform other Magic Jack users out there that if you do not use your Magic Jack for a undetermined amount of time that you can lose your number so beware of this companies shady tactics to steal your money. Keep in mind the number I lost was being used, but it was a forwarded number to my cell phone, so now it is gone forever because Magic Jack decided I was not using it or did not need it anymore, which was not the case.

And to think I was going to buy stock in this company, if they keep up these shady practices they will not be around much longer.

Commission Junction

Commission Junction | Affiliate Marketing program

Type of Business: Affiliate Marketing

Phone: 800-761-1072

Web Address: CJ.com

My Review about Commission Junction

Commission Junction is a big scam I have had an account with these guys for a few years now and have never made a dime. I have had my account suspended a few times for no activity but this last time I had actually been promoting the links really hard and had a balance of almost $17 now I know this is not much, but it is something and I was happy I had made anything at all. Well I received another email saying that my account had been suspended again due to no activity, so I loged in and reactivated my account and Commission Junction reset my account back to a zero balance. I would not recommend this Commission Junction to anyone who wants to make money online with affiliate marketing. I have a LinkShare account and they have never suspended my account for no activity, althoug I have not had much luck making money with them either. The only company I would recommend if you want to make money is Google Adsense I have had an account with them for about a year and I am about to get my first $100 pay check at the end of this month, so I am please with Google and would highly recommend using Google over Commission Junction who will gladly take money away for non activity as stated ion their help section I copied and pasted below. So beware of Commission Junction and their shady practices.

Below I have copied this text from the Commission Junction web site help section explaining how they will penalize your account for non activity.

Why has my balance decreased?
Why has my balance decreased?
Your balance may decrease for any of the following reasons:
Transaction corrections/reversals.
A withdrawal was made to process your payment.
Dormancy Fee ($10) assessed
Corrections/Reversals:

Advertisers have a monthly deadline of the 10th of each month to make any corrections or reversals to transactions that are found to be invalid (e.g. incorrect customer information, voided transaction, declined credit card, returned merchandise or anything else that meant the sale or lead needed to be corrected). Understand that they can make corrections at any point up until that time, but the week preceding the 10th is the most common to see the majority of corrections assessed.

Withdrawals:

If you have qualified for payment in a given month, you will see your account balance go down by the amount included in that payment on or around the 20th of the month. You can also see the amount debited (paid to you) in the Publisher Payments section of the main Reports interface in the CJ Account Manager.
Dormancy:

A $10 fee is charged to accounts that do not earn a commission in 6 months. You are required to earn a commission every 6 consecutive months in order to remain active within our system. After six months without having made a sale, your account will be deactivated due to dormancy. If you have funds within your account, they will be deducted $10 per month on the 1st until the balance is $0, at which time the account will be deactivated.

How to fix: Hold the Stop/Reset button and then press the OK button.

That’s it, it should reset the error message and you should be able to print your documents without having to replace the ink that you did not need at that time.

I was recently trying to get my Canon MX700 to print a black text only document, but it would not print because I need to replace my magenta and cyan ink cartridges, so I want online and found a forum telling me to unplug the printer and hit the power button and then open the tray and a few other steps I tried this twice and nothing. So I messed around with my Canon mx700 and found this quick fix please let me know if it works for you as well.

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1TB External Hard Drive

My review about the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1TB External Hard Drive

Seagate FreeAgent 1 TB External hard drive

Seagate FreeAgent 1 TB External hard drive

I ordered the Seagate Free Agent external hard drive on 01-28-2011 and have now had it for 3 days now, and the only thing I can say is I love this hard drive. I was worried that because it was an external hard drive it might not perform well, but even when I use it with my lap top usb 2.0 it performs very well. I also purchased the Seagate-FreeAgent GoFlex 1.5′ FireWire 800 Upgrade Cable-STAE102 and when I use this with my main computer it is lightning fast. The reason I purchased this hard drive was to consolidate all of my files from my laptop and desk top computers, so that I can have easy access to all of my files no matter which computer I use. I also got tired of trying to manage my files on two computers and keeping up on the most recent files. I have been able to work on both of my computers with this hard drive, and because I am using the one hard drive between the two I am always guaranteed the most recent file. I would highly recommend this hard drive to anyone trying to manage files between two computers or if you want to free up some space on your computers hard drive. I have also noticed my computers performance seems to have improved since I have moved all of my files to the external drive.

My Best Buy horror story when I picked it up in store.

I ordered the Seagate-FreeAgent GoFlex 1TB External USB 2.0 Portable Hard Drive Black from BestBuy.com and scheduled to pick it up in store. I went to my local Best buy which is located on Tyler St in Riverside, California to pick it up, and I was only in the store for about 15 to 20 minutes. When I came out of Best Buy I noticed that someone had keyed my car on the drivers side and passenger side doors. I went in to the store to ask if they had video surveillance to see if we could see who might have done this to my car, and the Best Buy employee said there was nothing they could do. This is a review about the Seagate Free agent so I will keep this short and say that next time I am just going to have it delivered, because now I am going to have to pay a $100 deductible to get my cars paint job back to the way it was prior to going to best by, and now for the Seagate Free Agent Review.

This is what I ordered from BestBuy.com all for a little under $165, and so far I think it was well worth it.

Sylvania Netbook

sylvania netbook

Sylvaniae Netbook

$99 Sylvania 7 inch net book.

I purchased this Net book and tried to get it to do some basic things like browse the web play some music and watch some movies and I found this net book to be extremely slow. I also tried to use skype which was already installed and I could not get skype to run it would just act like it was logging in and nothing would happen. I am going to be honest I messed around with the Sylvania 7 inch net book for about 2-3 hours and I felt frustrated with its slow performance / non performance the whole time. I ended up returned it and getting my money back. I would not recommend this computer from my experience with it, but if you have purchased this net book and feel different then please feel free to post your response below or if you purchased this net book and had the same problems similar to mine please feel free to share below.

The operating system is very weak, Windows CE. This version of operating system serves as the basis for mobile devices such as a mobile phone from Microsoft, but it in itself is unfriendly to the end user, not to mention the scarcity of programs presented.

Some of the features

  • Side: 2 USB 2.0 Ports
  • Back 3rd USB port, Ethernet input and ac plug input
  • SD card slot head phones and micro phone
  • 7 inch screen 800×480
  • takes about 20-30 seconds to boot
  • 2 GB solid state memory
  • Windows embedded CE 6.0
  • 128 MB ram
  • processor  via 8505

Overall I would not recommend buying this net book based on my experience with it.

Windows Updates whats the deal?

Windows Updates
Windows Updates

Windows updates start time 10:30 pm, I normally work on a Mac computer, but I decided to install Windows Vista on my Mac using Boot Camp so I can test my web sites and make sure everything works between the different browsers and operating systems, but whats the deal with all of the updates I installed the Windows Vista operating system over an hour ago and I am still doing updates as a matter of fact as I am writing this article there are still 49 of 97 updates waiting to complete this is crazy. I guess when your a Mac user you get used to turning on your computer and just working, but it has been so long since I have used the Windows operating system I almost forgot what a pain in the rear it can be. This sure does bring back memories though of a time when I would spend hours on in performing updates, disc defrags, anti virus scans and malware scans. I sure am glad I don’t have to use Windows as my primary operating system I just hope this updating stuff will be done in the next few hours I need to get some sleep.

Ok, so its been about 3 hours and I though I was all done with the Windows updates, so I restarted my computer and low and behold 6 more updates. I only have one thing to say about the Windows Operating system and the long process it takes before you can even use it WOW this is crazy.

Ok, so I restated after the last 6 updates where finished and now I have 3 more updates I don’t think I will be getting any sleep tonight. I guess my recommendation to anyone thinking about installing the Windows OS try to make sure you have no plans and you start early.

I am scared, but I am going to hit the check for updates button. Its checking, still checking, still checking, still checking, still checking, wow what a surprise 15 more important updates.

For those who are keeping count I have installed 121 updates and have wasted over 4 hours of my life, and now I am asking myself why did I install Windows on my Mac? Oh yeah to check if my web sites display correct in the different browsers, and guess what there are minor issues in Internet explorer of course, but no problems in Firefox. I think it is strange because on my Mac there are no issues on any of the browsers I use, such as Safari or Firefox. Please respond below if you see any issues on my web site and the browser you are using, and I would greatly appreciate it.

Ok so Windows is still downloading the updates I sure hope this is all of them, because I started at 10:30 pm and it is now 2:25 am.

Still installing updates 5 of 15, 2:33 am Done time to restart here we go.

Windows has restarted and its 4:40 am Guess what it says, if you said update your right it says 1 more important update.

WOW I just got a pop up window saying the installation for Windows Vista Service Pack 2 might take an hour or more, and your computer might restart several times. You wont be able to use your computer during installation. This is really crazy why do people buy computers with the Windows OS?

2:45 am here we go again, so I have restarted the computer again and the install is complete it actually was not as bad as I thought it was going to be it is 3:10 am, so it did not take the full hour like it said. Now I am doing another check for updates and I swear if it says it needs more updates I give up and I am throwing in the towel, and guess what it came back with 5 more important updates. This is crazy I will have to finish this some other time, because at this rate I will go crazy.
Well its 3:13 am and I am throwing in the towel, Windows you have won this round, nut I will be back for more punishment and I hope to one day have a completely updated Windows Vista OS, if that’s even possible.
Good Morning it is 10:15 am and I am going to start the update process once again, so I have my windows update window open and it says 7 important updates to be installed lets see how many more will come when these are done.
10:41 am I just got a message saying that Windows Live Essential could not be installed. To try again, click Try Again, Ok lets do it again. I am also currently at install 6 of 7 I sure hope this is the end of the exhausting task.
10:51am same error message again lets try again.

10:56 same error this time I am going to hit close and see what happens.

10:58 time to restart

Victory is mine after nearly 180 updates and 5 to 6 hours of my life I have finaly finished the updating task. I feel so accomplished, but at the same time regretful and scared to use the Windows OS we will see what happens.

This is not intended to offend any Windows fans this is just my opinion, but I really do love the Mac OS over the Windows OS.
Please tell me how you feel about your favorite operating system below.

2 Year Warranty on the Logitech Quick Cam Vision Pro

Logitech offers a 2 years warranty on the Quick Cam Vision Pro Web Cam

Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro Web Cam

Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro Web Cam

I think Logitech customer service is one of the best and should be replicated by others. I have had my Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro web cam for Mac for almost two years now in fact I purchased my QuickCam Vision Pro on November 25th 2008 and I called today November 9th 2010 to do a warranty exchange, because my Quick Cam Vision Pro web cam stopped working about a year ago when I upgraded my Mac operating system to Snow Leopard. I have tried many different thing to get this web cam to work, but nothing seemed to work so I called logitech and found out that they offer a 2 year warranty for this web cam, so I spoke with a nice girl by the name of Caitlyn and she made the process very simple she just asked me what happened and if I still had the proof of purchase, so I told her what happened and I did have the proof of purchase, so she took my information down, and just like that I have a new Logitech Quick Cam Vision pro web cam on its way to my house the process was simple and fast. I think the total time I spent on the phone with Caitlyn was less that five minutes, now that’s world class customer service from a company that stands behind their product. I can tell you this much for sure, as long as the customer service and warranty for Logitech products never change I will remain a loyal Logitech Customer for life. I highly recommend Logitech to anyone looking to buy any accessories for their computer, because I have experienced nothing but good customer service and excellent product warranties that are back 100% by Logitech.
