The photo sharing site Flickr.com has enhanced their free account to include 1 TB of storage and full resolution uploads. Previously, only the $30/year Pro account offered full resolution as well as unlimited storage. While 1TB isn't unlimited it will cover most family picture needs. Current high resolution DSLR cameras output .jpg files of about 8MB.per picture. A 1TB storage limit would handle about 125,000 photographs Assuming you take, on average, 100 pictures each week, it would take 24 years to reach the !TB limit.

Why try to hammer out solutions to problems such as gun violence, immigration, healthcare costs and jobs when the country faces the threat of Google Glass. While unable to find bipartisan solutions to anything real, Congress is demanding answers from Google about the potential dangers from Google Glass - a product that has not been released. The letter to Google CEO Larry Page - see full letter below - requests that Google reply by June 14, 2013 with solutions to problems created by what the not-yet released device's not-yet known features might do. If they are sincerely concerned about privacy then they might want to start with some products that are actually being sold by the thousands that do exactly what they seem to be concerned about.
They may wish to start with the Cellebrite UFED Touch, a device which can extract, decrypt, parse and analyze phonebook contacts, multimedia content, SMS and MMS messages, call logs, electronic serial numbers (ESN), International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) and SIM location information. Some features do not require a physical connection to the device. Or instead of worrying about "what if" Google Glass might one day do facial recognition, Congress may wish to think of the privacy implications of real devices that actually do it today such as the BI2 Technologies MORIS™ a handheld biometric device based on the iPhone that can recognize and identify people based on iris, face, or fingerprint.

Free or inexpensive software can make taking notes during class lectures more effective. They accomplish this by recording the lecture as you take notes. Later, by placing your cursor anywhere in the document, you can play the audio recorded at the time that note was taken.
These programs make it possible to add notes that were missed during a fast moving lecture and remove the pressure of constant note taking when you just want to focus on what's being said. When reviewing your lecture notes, if something isn't clear, you can play the audio from that point in the lecture.

Back Up or Copy Your Mac OS X Mail Junk Mail Training Data
Like most modern email clients, Mac Mail includes a junk mail filter that can be trained for more accurate filtering. By clicking on a JUNK or NOT JUNK button the system "learns" what emails to move to your Junk folder, and which ones are legitimate. This is sometimes referred to as separating the SPAM from the HAM.

"Our lives are on our laptops – family photos, medical documents, banking information, details about what websites we visit, and so much more. Thanks to protections enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, the government generally can’t snoop through your laptop for no reason. But those privacy protections don’t safeguard travelers at the U.S. border, where the U.S. government can take an electronic device, search through all the files, and keep it for a while for further scrutiny – without any suspicion of wrongdoing whatsoever."
