Working on your privacy

Two things you can do without going any further are switching off bluetooth unless you need it and turning off location if you  don’t need it. Location is still detected via Google but  you  do not need to go out of your way to tell everyone where you are. Turn location on when you really need it. For some reason my Linux Mint 17.2 has bluetooth on by default. For privacy’s sake it should be the other way around.

Now for some links which will help you to make some good decisions about privacy and know how to manage it:

PC Mag has some good information to help you manage Google privacy.

The video gives you security information about Safari.

On websites and accounts you use, check your settings. Look at the privacy policy for the websites and accounts. None of this is perfect at the moment. Privacy and security are ongoing issues. You also need to be prepared to let key people know what you think are acceptable and unacceptable terms of privacy. If they don’t know they will do what they think is right.

 

 

Exhausted iPad

safari“Mrs. Woods, my iPad’s exhausted,” was what was called out to me in my Year 8 class today. “Mrs. Woods, my iPad’s exhausted and I can’t upload my work.”

“What do you mean it is exhausted? Do you mean it has no battery life left?”
” No, it’s exhausted. I have a message which says it’s exhausted.”

Yes, indeed there was a message which probably meant there was a time out. The iPad was rebooted and all was well with the world.

Why would you have any other job?

Which browser?

Chrome Which browser? All of them at the moment depending upon which operating system and what I am trying to do. They all have their strengths and their weaknesses and for a while one will be really good and then the wheels will drop off. At the moment I really like Chrome when I am on my MacBook and on Linux Mint. It works extremely smoothly, has very few issues, manages flash and silverlight well and I like being able to access TweetDeck from my browser and have other Google apps on there too. On my iPad it’s Safari and that works okay on my iPad but I find it limiting on my MacBook. On Windows I use Firefox but sometimes that has issues and I’ll go to Explorer. I find Explorer cumbersome but I confess it runs video really, really well so when I am trying to stream news video I will often use Explorer. If I am having difficulties with the major browsers I use Opera which works well on all operating systems. It is lightweight and uncomplicated. It serves well as a back up when all else fails because it takes the pressure off the system. Sometimes you have to wait for fixes and patches because they are releasing browser updates so quickly these days. We don’t have time to wait…so Opera can help.
