    Set Up Laptops For Christmas
    Well christmas is here and my phone is ringing off the hook. Seems that everyone in my neighborhood got a laptop for Christmas and wants me to set it up.

    My job is to put spybot, lavasoft, avg etc. Everything to keep the bad guys out. Just did two laptops for my nephew and my niece. Nice laptops aol preloaded systemax from Tiger.

    Downloaded all the updates from aol dial up time was 75 minutes, dsl 3 minutes so they were hooked up to cat 5 once I found that out. I actually used a dial up at first and that was a mistake. Can't wait for the day that dial up goes bye bye.

    Some useful information is that aol spyware checker does not remove tracking cookies by default but there is a box to check if you want them too. I would think most people would leave it alone.

    I tried to search for my sites using aol and couldn't find any all it had listed are sites that link to mine. Very strange but hey I am there somewhere lol.

    I went to my google stats to see how many people have found my site using dial up and it was less than 5%.

    Merry Christmas

    I treated myself to a new Dell Inspiron 6000 with ALL the goodies. While the kids are playing with the new X-box and other toys, I'm sitting here at the dining room table setting up my new laptop. Boy is this thing FAST!!!!!

    Vinny, just got mine on Dec 1 when my Sprint plan was elligible for the rebates.

    The TREO 650 rocks...have all our merchant sites in the blazer browser, passwords locked and loaded and have the versa mail running smoothly....

    Now i can spend less time behind my desk and still have all my tools, sites and info I need to run my consulting buss.

    Still getting used to the "feel" though, a bit bulkier than my old cell phone....but I love all the data and applications at my disposal....

    Remember to check ebay. I got my Treo 600 for only $77.00 there a couple of months ago and it looks brand new, great battery life. But be careful you buy one that is unlocked or is locked to your provider as it may not work if you don't check carefully.

    I am personally waiting for the Treo 700. It is supposed to be available on the Verizon network within the next couple weeks. It will also be windows based which could be nice.

    Thanks for the info but after reading about it on treo forums I will choose the 650, maybe I should wait until jan 5th so the price drops on it. That is when the new treo comes out.

    There's another cool device - it's called the XDA IIi here in TWC, I guess they call it an MDA in the US, .. or an i-mate .. I'm not too sure. .. it's a windows mobile pocket PC phone, with high-speed GPRS, it's as good as carrying an (almost) broad-band connected PC with you where ever you go. it's cool for email, checking stats,..

    It's got a nice 1.3 Mpix cam, and you can run all kinds of cool pocket PC software on it. I love having skype on the phone. it's got a built in wifi card and all that . .. been using it for six months now without any complaint

    Just got mine today, I love the widescreen. My last laptop, an Insprion 5100, had a 32MB graphic card, this baby has 128MBs. Christmas came late but I'm still a happy camper

    nyf- Make sure to add your sites to their 'favorites' when you install everything else!
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    Wanted to post this update in case anyone else is thinking about a treo 650 and uses verizon.

    Just got rid of the treo 650 and went back to my old phone. It seems that there is a lot of problems with the treo's that were supplied to Verizon. The sound quality is one problem and since you cant hear anyone on the phone it is useless.

    I will still keep the treo though and use it to create content on it and transfer it over to the computer and use it as an mp3 player also. What a shame this thing cost me a lot but I have a way of recouping the cost. This experience will become a few nice pages for my cell phone sites.

    I already have a couple of laptops, but treated myself to two 24" LCD monitors (dual display mode) this last january after x-mas.

    Though I am thinking of getting a tablet pc this fall. Mainly to test, design and play around with our Kiosk software.

    Thanks Andy

    I downloaded that and I still could barely hear people. I have been on forums for a few weeks and it is just useless if you are using a verizon phone
