How do I remove the Ask toolbar from Google Chrome

By | October 20th, 2012|Categories: Tips and Tricks|Tags: , , , , , , |

How do I remove the Ask toolbar from Google Chrome I'm not sure how I got this darn thing, but I have been downloading a few different drawing packages so I'm assuming I allowed it entry from something there. What was happening is that every time I put a word in the address bar (omnibox) - whereas normally it would bring up Google search - this annoying Ask search thing would come up. Look what happens when I type in Walk Off The Earth in the address bar......   <-- see my review there - Great Band Useless!! These are Asksupports instructions that didn't work for me but they might for you. To remove the Ask Tool Bar from Chrome - In an open Chrome browser, click on the Wrench In the top right-hand corner of the browser window. - Hover over Tools In the menu that appears and click on Extensions. - Locate the Ask extension and click the Remove button next to it. - Click Uninstall In the box that appears. - Close and re-open your browser.To reset your Chrome homepage, [...]

How to change your Twitter Header Photo 2016

  How to change your Twitter Header Photo 2016 I've noticed people heading over to this page, so its time for a 2016 UPDATE Its so much simpler now. Click your own name to open up your page fully and at the top you will see your cover picture - underneath it says EDIT PROFILE When you click this it lets you change your cover or header photo, your profile picture, your name and your bio.   Just click change your header photo - upload your image and save changes.  The best size for the Twitter header photo is 1263 x 421 Although twitter recommends 1500 x 500 it come out too large and twitter allows you to adjust it but for me, it just never works. If you haven't updated your twitter, then you may still be able to use the instructions below for 2015.   ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   More changes on Twitter, what next ? As you probably know Twitter has made some changes, see here if not -> Twitter announces new profile pages and iPad app -  You can now [...]

How to enable the new Blogger or Blogspot new threaded comments

By | January 12th, 2012|Categories: Tips for Bloggers|Tags: , , , , , , |

Bloggers on Google's Blogger blog sites have been asking the question for a long time, when will we get threaded comments like you can have on websites such as wordpress. Now they can, today Blogger announced they have made another improvement to Blogger and that is that they new support threaded commenting. Threaded commenting makes it much easier to see whether someone is actually just commenting on the blog or in fact replying to another comment. This makes it much more likely for people to leave feedback on a blog as they can submit there on view on someone else's response to your blog post. For instance - on my blog problems with twitter on the iphone 4s Bob might comment - This solution didn't fix it for me, its still not working. Janice can now reply to Bobs comment  - You must be doing something wrong, as it worked for me and hopefully Bob has clicked notify by mail of any updates to comments on this post - then Bob will see it and he could even reply back.

By | January 10th, 2012|Categories: Internet Tools|Tags: , , , , , , |

It seems that New years resolutions are made to break, a little bit like rules! We seem to set ourselves impossible tasks or too many at once. We are 10 days into 2012 now... How are you doing with your 2012 resolutions? If you said you were going to Eat Healthy Food and went out for a huge steak and chips this weekend, does that mean you've failed as this infographic suggests?  No, of course not - it just means you tripped up along the way. Besides you can have a treat now and then, ok it was a little early into the year, but don't give up! If you have chosen more than one resolution such as... Get Fit Loose weight Give up Smoking Get a better job Leave Facebook Join Google+ ...just decide which one is the most important and stick to that for 6 months or so, then maybe tackle the next one.  You will just go crazy trying to do them all at once and probably give up completely.  Choose the easiest first like joining Google+ :) Keep [...]

Can't wait to get Facebook's New Timeline ? You will have it very soon, don't worry! However if you have been chomping at the bit since the launch of Timeline in December for your Facebook Profile to change and can't wait any longer you can get it right now. Before we go into that, some are still asking - What is Facebook timeline?  Facebook timeline is a new profile layout that will show your Facebook activity from the time you joined Facebook. In a Time... Line!  Clever?  So, now your Facebook friends can look through your whole Facebook networking history not just what you posted today or last week.  Fun or Scary?  You may want to change some settings, I will show you how. I'm surprised actually that some of my most safety conscious friends are loving the new timeline. This is Mick Say's Timeline...He's from the Online Marketing Academy - I'm sure he won't mind me showing you what it looks like.

Social networking at its best with Favo.rs

By | December 19th, 2011|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

Favo.rs is a social networking platform where users can trade help for free.  Favo.rs officially launched about two weeks ago and as far as I can make out is the work of Adam Rodnitzky, George Aspland and Scott Roberts who are all listed as co-founders. I signed up today for favo.rs and I have enjoyed helping a few people out, and finding out all about it, I think it is going to be a great "help" to all. It is simple to sign up - you can just log in with your Facebook, Linkedin or Twitter and link the others and you simply connect to help others and ask for help. Its a fantastic idea, as sometimes we all need a little assistance, getting that blog seen or a tweet heard, and here you feel no shame in asking for help.  Although most of what I have seen is people helping not asking, I had to look around for people that needed help. When you ask a favor, people can answer you, or broadcast it on their various networks or vouch for [...]

Strict Nat problem with Modern Warfare 3 – Call of Duty

By | November 9th, 2011|Categories: Games|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

The time had come! Modern Warfare 3 was released yesterday,  eager gamers - queued up to get their copy first lastnight at 12am. Only to find when they returned on that they had a strict nat not an open nat on their Xbox 360 and couldn't join any online games. We had the same problem, strange though as it often happens with us, not sure if its due to the ip address not being static or the fact something is set up wrong on the router, but set everything up correctly for two Xboxes on the router - anyway I digress. This is what we do, when one of the xboxes have a strict nat - we do this on the xbox - not the router. Follow this video its as easy as pie and takes 5mins - Fix your nat settings for xbox360 this should work, if only for the time being. Otherwise Xbox has their own instructions here - Error: Your NAT type is set to strict (or moderate) Last Modified 9/8/2011 If you can’t join online games or hear other [...]

Fix…. My iPhone 3gs won’t restore after iOS5

By | October 17th, 2011|Categories: Tips and Tricks|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

  Did you say this? My iPhone 3gs won't restore after iOS5 My story... After patiently waiting for 4 days for the dust to settle before I attempted to download the  iOS 5 Software Update for iPhone, some iPod touch and iPad . I connected up my iPhone and opened iTunes. I was still apprehensive as so many people have had various problems, like music disappearing, album covers gone, various error messages but then some people said it was all fine and hunky dory.  To be safe I didn't just rush and download the iOS software update - first I installed the updated iTunes, sync'd and backed up the iPhone and making sure everything was up to date, hoping this would help. iOS5 downloaded in about 8 mins and installed really quickly, I thought it was too good to be true when it said iTunes needs to do a restore to complete. It went through the restore process only to come up with a message, saying that this unit could not be restored. Gutted - Try again and it says your phone is in [...]

As a result, a large backlog of [...]
