So, it’s world backup day. Really… we have a world Backup Day? I need a better calendar.

Personally, I am a HUGE fan of this and do it religiously! I have invested in 2 pieces of hardware: a 4TB USB 3.0 drive (just watch the Tiger Direct Ad's, or the New Egg, etc... ad's and you can get one for under 125.00) and what I feel is the best backup software (not a 10... maybe a 8 in performance) and then set the back-ups to run over night, twice a week.

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.
