Android phones have officially taken over the world. Sort of. Anyway, chances are, you probably use one or may even already have an old one just sitting around. If you’ve ever felt like the webcam on your laptop didn’t allow you the range of motion you wanted, you could use an Android phone as an additional webcam on your computer!
I was recently working on a completely unrelated issue, and someone asked “while I’m talking to you, can you look at this?” They opened Outlook 2013 on their computer and were greeted by a Script Error. I hadn’t even seen Outlook 2013 before this (I skipped the Office 2013 preview last year!), but I was pretty quickly able to figure this one out.
I don’t have Office 2013 in front of me right this second, but I believe the steps were very similar to these:
Right click on your account name / email address on the left side of the screen.
Click on the Home Page tab.
Uncheck boxes for Outlook today – you want Outlook to open straight to the Inbox.
These steps may not be precise, but they should be close. My instructions will be refined once I get a personal copy of Outlook 2013 – comments for clarification are always welcome!
I normally talk about movies or albums, but today I just want to talk about a few songs. There are artists and bands who most people probably wouldn’t even consider as one-hit-wonders because they don’t even know one of their songs. But there were a few of those songs that started to get radio play, I really liked them, but they just never took off. For some reason, almost all of those songs had some kind of melancholy to them. It must have been a phase. I won’t even talk about them, I just encourage you to click the link and listen to the sample song. Tell me if you remember it, or if you had the same “oh, man, I haven’t heard this in years” moment that I did when I was thinking about this article. So, in no particular order, here are a few songs I think you should hear.
Josh Joplin – Camera One
Amanda Ghost – Idol
Moby – The Sky is Broken
New Radicals – You Only Get what you Give
Chill Pill Dancers – Zoot Suit Riot (I still don’t know HOW this song came in to my life, rather than the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies version, but I still love this version, to this day!)
Shawn Mullins – Lullaby
Swirl 360 – Hey Now Now (I also loved the other song off of their first single, called Don’t Shake My World)
Some people hate DRM and they think it’s always in the way. Yes, there are some terrible implementations of DRM, but I’ve found Microsoft’s implementation to work pretty well over the years. But if you have questions about how it works, Microsoft has a nice article about it which answers several questions. Foremost of them? What is DRM? The article will even cover transferring your data to a new console.
