When trying to fix a video problem with a doc cam at a school, I found this helpful troubleshooting page from the manufacturer. Check out the solutions under video problems. “Ask a student who plays video games to hook it up for you.” SERIOUSLY?!?!

From this troubleshooting page from the manufacturer:

Susan the VA school tech

Yeah, sorry about the audio quality of the call. I was on the road and my bluetooth device is kinda lame. I’d be so much easier if I could just hold the thing to my ear, but apparently that’s distracting.

Anyway, the software is called Cylay:

It allows a user to remote lock, send messages to the phone, set off an alarm, locate it on a google map, backup via their servers or google, remote wipe, SMS forward and prevent poweroff if lost/stolen. It cost me $20 a year and it’s awesome. The only draw back is that you have to have a Jailbroken iPhone to make it work, but there are millions of reasons you should jailbreak anyway, so this will just add another one to the list.

Hey Buzzcrew

i think i have an answer to the netbook name issue

I am taking a computer class at the local comunity college to suplement my highschool education, and my class is studying moble computing at the moment. My professer calls netbooks “Sub-notebooks” i think that is the PERFECT word to describe them seeing as there is no geting aroind they fact thats what they are. (also i hate marketing buzzwords, i mean just call it search and be done)

May your blade never dull!

PS sorry for the awful typing/spelling but my computer does not work at the moment and i am forced to use my iPhone
