- iPhone 6 — Why? A Contrarian View
The news media has been awash with reviews and comments on the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. they’re talking about all the great new things great new features included in the 6 and 6 Plus, as well as new features of iOS8.
But,why should we even consider a new iPhone at this point?
If you got a working iPhone (or other phone) that you’re happy with, then don’t get a new one.
If you got an iPhone 5 or an iPhone 5S, you got a fantastic phone — an iPhone 6 is a little bigger, a little faster internally — does that justify the cost of an upgrade? […]

When you have a web site design program, you can have fun with it. Back in the days of Microsoft Frontpage 98, I developed a fake web site to tease my son.
It was developed in a wild fit of humor. My son was a student at a local high school with the initials PBS. One Friday night, our family went out to dinner and our conversation turned to school.
I got a wild hair and mentioned that the school had a new website for parental support. Of course, I exaggerated about this non-existant site, carrying on about its supposed features . Fortunately, my bluff couldn’t get called quickly, as we were delivering him to a friend’s house for an all-night computer game session and sleepover.
As soon as I got home, I fired up my copy of Frontpage 98 and began to create the site […]
I received a question on my Terry’s Computer Tips web site by a subscriber who was concerned about the End of Life of Windows XP.
In order to avoid having to make a major change, and since he was already using Windows 7 in addition to using Windows XP, his planned solution was to use the Windows XP Mode that is available in Windows 7 Professional.
Unfortunately, that name (“Windows XP Mode”) is really misleading […]
I recently modified my home network to increase the accessibility of my printers. I have two printers. Now, both of them work with my desktop computers, my wireless laptop, our iPhones and my wife’s iPad. Installation and setup was surprisingly easy, too.
One printer is an HP Color Laserjet CP1518ni, which is built to be a network printer with its own IP address (no "Windows File & Printer Sharing" necessary). It hooks to the network via an Ethernet cable. The other printer is an older model, an HP Laserjet 1220se.[…]
Well, I did it. The day the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus went on sale, I was in line waiting for the AT&T store to open.
Since I got there about 7 o’clock for the 8 AM opening I wasn’t anywhere near the front of the line. However, the line went quickly — I was finished and out of the store with my new iPhone 6 before 9 AM.
I didn’t get one of the 6 Plus models. The lucky few that got midline the night before were able to pick up one of the twelve iPhone 6 Plus phones that were in stock when the store opened. Fortunately, the iPhone that I wanted was the iPhone 6. I really didn’t check the colors and models available, except to know that they had the gray in 64GB and 128GB versions — I got the 128GB one […]

I love the redesign of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site — it makes article posting and maintenance much easier than before. I’m glad I switched to WordPress and the Genesis Framework. On my Terry’s Computer Tips site, I’m using the base Genesis Framework with a child theme of my own to customize it.
