Steps to stop SPAM getting in your email.

If you're anything like me, you probably loathe getting bombarded by spam.
 
Here are a few simple general rules to try and help you avoid getting SPAM from marketers or internet sites.
  1. Have separate email addresses. Do not use your primary or work email to register on websites. Create a Gmail, Outlook.com or Yahoo mail account, and use this instead. This will help ensure that you only receive relevant email to your primary account. Keep the spare email account for the 'fluff' stuff such as registering for competitions, or surveys, or sales etc.
  2. Do not provide your primary or work email address on competition forms or dockets in shopping centres, this follows rule 1.
  3. Only give your primary email address to people whom you trust or need to urgently liaise with.
  4. Ensure you always have a good reliable anti-virus and/or anti-spam software to stop your computer from being maliciously hacked or hijacked. A majority of spam come from innocent users whose computers have been hijacked by malicious software. This is usually the reason some of the spam you receive may appear to come from your friends or colleagues, or from email addresses that you are familiar with.
Follow these rules and it will help you lessen the amount of SPAM getting into your inbox.

To allow the phone to be detected using the USB cable - this is a workaround I use.

Make sure you have the HTC Sync Manager installed to start with. When this is done, you may still find that your HTC One will show as an unknown device when Windows tries to detect the phone... bear with me...


You DO NOT have to use the AirDroid WiFi function (it will allow you to use the USB cable after installtion). Install the app 'AirDroid' which essentially allows you to transfer using WIFI. Installing this app activates the HTC One's storage section and when this is done, connecting it to the PC using a USB cable will allow you to see the files in My Computer as a Storage device (as pictured above and below).

Double click on the internal storage and you…

Best Dual SIM mobile phones Australia 2017

All dual SIM mobile phones are the same, right?
The answer is NO, they're not. And if you're unlucky enough to buy the wrong one, you could soon be stuck with a single SIM mobile phone.
Why a dual SIMmobile phone? The answer is varied for this one. There are many reasons why people have more than one mobile device. Some use it to juggle their girl/boy friends around, having different numbers for each. Some like to have a full on data SIM only device where they can Facebook, YouTube, Snapchat, Netflix and web all they want. But carrying two devices can be a drag. So here's where a dual SIM mobile phone comes in handy. For me it's simple...
I've been carrying two mobile phones around for ages, one for business use, the other for personal. It just made so much more sense to carry one instead of two devices.
Where to get dual SIM phones in Australia and where NOT to get them. So for the last few days, I've been on the hunt for a dual SIM phone here in Perth, West…
