Shopping Tips

Understand the value of what you are buying.

In doing so, you become a better consumer and understand how to shop online.

Whenever you want to purchase an item (old or new), I do one or more of the following items.

1. Google it

2. Check it on Amazon

3. Check it on Ebay

4. Price Track it

There are a lot of other sites where you can do comparison shopping but the above sites are what I find most useful.

In determining the true value, you have to consider the following items:

  1.  retail price
  2.  shipping & handling
  3.  warranty
  4.  reviews
  5.  condition


I find that amazon’s customer reviews are valuable in evaluating a product.

Las Vegas, Jan 7-10, 2014


Had a great time at CES. The new stuff to out look out for are Ultra HD TV's, 3D printers and robotics. Those booths were so crowded throughout the show. Thanks to Ballistic for the free case/holster.


My email was hacked

As most of you know, my yahoo email was compromised and most of you got a spam email from my hackers. Please ignore and delete. When this happens, the only option one really has is to immediately change their password and let time run its course. Only after realizing that my emails were not coming in to my Inbox did I decide to call Yahoo.

I just want to share some details from my investigation and hopefully make you aware on this malicious hacking hoping that this will never happen to anyone else. It's important to make your passwords strong and secured but in my case, that just wasn't enough. Make sure you backup your contacts and emails.

1.      All my Yahoo Contacts disappeared.

2.      All my Yahoo Sent items disappeared.

Call your email provider asap. I called Yahoo and was informed that the hackers had switched my email to forward to their email so that they would receive any replies. Yahoo deleted the forwarding and my email is now working again. They were also able to recover my lost data but only after I've sent them a couple of follow-up emails.

If you have Yahoo email, here are a couple of other features that you might want to activate for security. Something similar should apply to other email providers.

1.      Sign-In Seal

2.      Second sign-in verification

3.      Set up security key

4.      Change your secret questions if your email gets compromised.

5.      Use https security if available
