Thanks to everyone who listened, and to all the callers.[audio:YourTechLife014-podcast.mp3]
Show notes coming through soon – Thanks to Stephen Fenech from the Daily Telegraph for chatting to me, and also Robert Waterford from MatchMaster Communications talking Digital TV Aerials
Greg – Re Handheld Digital TV – goto www.laserco.net
Rob – Re MacBook purchase Advice – I would happily recommend a MacBook pro, I suggest the 13inch, at $1599. Don’t compare like for like with a Windows Laptop, think about the quality of build, the reliability as part of your purchase decision
Marcello – Question re Outlook not closing down – the Icon stays in the System Tray – I suggest if he really doesnt like it he look at disabling some portion of the Anti-Virus which continully accesses Outlook data stores
Bill – Not a fan of the iPad – Will be sticking with the iPhone – I disagree, this thing will go well, we just need to give it some time and have apps developed specifically
John – Music Videos off Youtube and view on a DVD or USB. Warren and I suggest Firefox and the Download Helper.
Get Firefox from www.getfirefox.com and the plugin after that from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3006
Richard – WordPad printing issue – wordpad is printing a grey background onto paper when printing any document – I can’t find any reference to this online, but suggest trying to SAVE AS a RICH TEXT format and then print.
Michael – iPad – Will you be able to print from it – I think NO, but we’ll have to wait and see. However with the iWorks integration there is a possiblity this might be on the cards…
David – Has a friend who is having to scroll left and right every time she visits most websites. This is because of the Screen Resolution – 2 solutions – 1/ Change Screen Resolution to 1024×768 – do this by right clicking on the Windows Desktop, click Properties, then Settings Tab and slide the tab across to 1024×768. Solution 2 was from our caller Grant who suggests just clicking CTRL and “-” at the same time to zoom out, CTRL and “+” to zoom in! Thanks Grant
Nick – Bluetooth Nokia phone wont pair with his car – I’ve referred this to Nokia to see if they can help
Kathy – Also has a Nokia, hers is an E71, which can’t pair with her Navman – Also referred to Nokia
George – Had a problem with his display after ‘mucking around’ with settings. Unfortunately it seems worse than just a resolution issue. I’ve suggested George goes to Control Panel, System, and Device Manager and REMOVES / UNINSTALLS the Video Card. Reboot the machine and you will get your screen back! I hope!
Thanks everyone for calling and emailing – please contact me if you have any questions or suggestions!
