So, you have a Mazda with MZD-Connect and Nav but the address you’ve tried isn’t found. What now? Well, you can enter co-ordinates but doing so isn’t as straight forward as you’d expect.
Here’s how to do it…
I saw this shared on Facebook today…
It’s wise advice. But it assumes you’re getting free prescriptions, which most people don’t. Of course, even then, it’s still good advice but can be extended more generally – always check the ‘over the counter’ cost of anything you’re getting on prescription, as it may be cheaper to buy it yourself.
However, this post is not actually about this but about comments that often come about as a result of this kind of discussion.
Why would anybody want to buy branded paracetamol when you can it buy them from Home Bargain for 16p?
Last year I wrote about how a single product, the GoKey, had made me give up on crowd funding websites. Badly delayed, something always seemed to come up when the deadline was imminent. However, it all appeared to be moving on and only a couple of weeks ago all the backers received an email so we could provide final confirmation details of our product requirements (for example, my phone connection has changed, twice,
since originally backing the product, so I needed a different connector on the GoKey).
This morning I had an email.
The 2016 MacBook Pro is, honestly, a lovely piece of hardware. Slim, with an excellent screen and a large touchpad. The Touchbar is, I’m sure, very useful but as I use a separate keyboard and monitor, it’s not something I get an opportunity to use much.
But it’s not perfect.
Amazon Web Services (known as AWS) provides a number of web-based products but their most popular is probably S3 (Simple Storage Service). It provides ‘cloud’ storage and is used by numerous sites and businesses throughout the world. Last night it stopped working and that had an impact on many people as a result – probably, most noticeable for some, IFTTT was completely offline as a result.
However, something else didn’t work.
The next time you sign up for a website or you click on the ‘Forgotten password’ link and they email you your password…. run! Delete your account and don’t use them.
Let me explain why. Continue reading
As part of my new job online security is paramount. To this end, for a number of months I’ve been ploughing through my online accounts and updating passwords to be unique and strong. A password manager is essential to this – I use LastPass but 1Password is also recommended. I also changed my email address recently too so I’ve been taking the opportunity to update that as well.
Unfortunately, some websites, and retailers in particular, don’t seem to want to help out, making it difficult, one way or another, to be as secure online as you’d like.
Oral-B toothbrushes are certainly very popular and both my wife and I use them. However, as with many modern battery products, you’ll find that, after a while, they stop recharging quite so well. However, you can revive it rather than resorting to repair or replacement.
After your next recharge, run your toothbrush until it’s fully discharged – i.e. the head no longer moves when it is switched on. Once that’s happened, fully recharge it. Depending on your toothbrush model it should take between 14 and 22 hours to fully recharge – personally, I leave it charging for a full day, just to make sure.
