Well, this is just an FAQ on how you can toggle between the ribbon bar and... well.. not the ribbon bar. 

Pretty simple once you know where to look. 

The more I use Office 2013, the more I like some of the little interface tweaks Microsoft made to the suite.

Well, I have had to do this a couple of times and I thought it was time to find an article and show you how to do it. 

If you’re planning to sell or give away your iPad, then it is essential that your personal information and data be erased from it. If it’s running sluggish after a few years, sometimes backing up your data, erasing it from the tablet and restoring it might improve performance.

First, you need to make sure that you have the most current version of iTunes.

I was looking around this a.m. for a way to playback some of the DVDs I have on my PC. I know you have to purchase Windows 8 Media Center separately but even then you will have issues with some of the Blue-Ray DVD's since MS has not included most of the codecs required to play the various formats. 

This article over on ghacks.net will help you get past those limitations.

It feels kinda strange that Microsoft's newest operating system Windows 8 comes without options to play DVD or Blu-Ray movies out of the box. It may make sense from Microsoft's perspective, as the company has to pay licensing fees to include the technologies required to play DVD and Blu-Ray discs in Windows 8, and that it can drop the cost of the system which may or may not be also beneficial to consumers.

So, my daughter came to last week, asking me for some help in regards to her banking statement. 

My kids are pretty savvy when it comes to finances since I DEMAND they learn about it between the ages of 16-18. I actually sit with them and go over credit scores, banking statements, checking accounts, interest, and credit cards. I continually teach them about it over the next year so, at the very least, they have a solid understanding of just how important their credit score and staying out of debt actually is.

As she was trying to login she sat there in front of me and stared up at the sky like a lot of us do when we can't remember our passwords.

I asked her if she had a password manager, and she said 'no' so I showed her LastPass. She loved it.

LastPass is a online password manager which is available to you either online or as a plug-in supporting every single browser out there including Opera.
