    Next show is May 4th

  1. FuelGaugeReport.com - a resource that tracks nationwide pricing of gas; lots of numbers!
  2. DownDetector.com - a resource that tracks the "down-time" of Internet Service Providers" (ISP) across the country. Useful to use to see if your ISP is having a small or big problem.
  3. RantSports.com - a resource that provides online coverage of all the major sports in the U.S..
  4. Suggest.com - a resource that covers celebrities, movies, TV and style. Lots of interesting articles to keep you entertained.
  5. MeetingWizard.com [since 2001] - free, easy way to organize people and events; schedule your meetings & events. Also visit: "BringIt" and "eVite".
  6. EarthEasy.com - it is an online business that provides solutions for sustainable living; browse their Web-blogs and useful articles for some tips. There is no obligation to purchase, and this is not my endorsement.
  7. NHL.com - the Stanley Cup playoffs begin on April 15th. They stream their content; some you have to pay for - like a live game stream. Highlights of the games are free along with tons of statistics. Also visit: "NBA" and "MLB". It is that time of the year when these 3 sports clash with each other.
  8. TornadoHistoryProject.com - 58,000+ tornado maps for the U.S.; tornadoes from 1950-2013.
  9. WebAIM.org [by the Center for Persons with Disabilities] - Web accessibility resource; check-out their "Web accessibility evaluation tool".
  10. TheSearchEngineList.com - a comprehensive list of search engines; although a lot of us use Google, Yahoo and Bing there are many other search engines that might work well for you; or is this a reminder of what once was? Most likely!
  11. *****macrium.com - another backup software program; also has ghosting feature (duplicating "drives" - especially hard drives - check out their FREE version of their "Macrium Reflect" software.
  12. ****Classic Shell ---> This is a Windows 8 "free utility" to make it look more like Windows-7 or Windows XP. I have used it a few times on Windows 8 systems; and, it has worked well for me. Good luck!

  13. Peter Greene's Selection of Most Popular Applications (Apps) - Software

  14. Microsoft "Office" - remember Visicalc? WordStar? WordPerfect? Lotus 1-2-3? Multiplan? Also now: "Google Docs"
  15. Adobe's "Photoshop" - they are also known for their "Creative Suite". Related - remember Corel Draw? Saw money and use "Google's Picasa".
  16. "Google's Gmail". Also: Yahoo Mail, AOL, Outlook by Microsoft, Windows Live Mail (by Microsoft), Apple Mail.
  17. "Google Maps" or just using your smartphone for a GPS [Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based satellite navigation system]. Remember MapQuest?
  18. Google's "YouTube". Along with "Twitter", "Pinterest" and "Facebook" you are a social butterfly. Remember "MySpace"?.
  19. "eBay" - connects buyer's and seller's from all over the world.
  20. "Speedtest.net" by Ookla; just nice to know how face your Internet connection really is. I have been using this for years and really appreciate it!
  21. "Skype" (for traveling) - it has changed hands (owners) a few times. So the rules / costs might change just like cell phone plans do!
  22. "WhatsApp" (for traveling) - also handy for travelling outside the U.S.
  23. Apple's "iTunes". If you own an Apple product then you pretty much have to use it. But don't forget this handy app --->"i-FunBox" [I like the classic version]
  24. The "Staples": Operating Systems: Free"Ubuntu" and paid for version such as Apple's OSX (Yeosemite) and Microsoft Windows 8.1 (I still like 7 over 8). I think OSX runs better and if you hate doing backups you can't beat TimeMachine in OSX. Under the hood Apple's OSX really is a version of Unix; and Linux (Ubuntu, Redhat and others) is also a version of Unix.
  25. The other Staples: Web browser - Mozilla's "FireFox". And the others: Microsoft's Internet Explorer, Chrome, Apple's Safari.

  39. As discussed on a previous show - I have listed resources to help you search for access to public information, and, information that may be purchased.

    Note: I have no affiliation or am I making any endorsement for use of these resources; just pointing out examples to access this kind of information on the Internet and World Wide Web. I tried to group the resources together as best as possible.

    Keep in mind that even though you may sign-up to be a member of a Web site - that some of your information, such as a "user name" for your membership may be accessible outside of that resource by search engines such as Google.com (this also includes images). So you may want to change your use of your "user name" across multiple sites; similar to changing your use of the same passwords to protect yourself. Or it is a question to ask yourself - how visible or invisible do I want to be online? If you associate your name (even a nickname or alias and someone knows it) with a face then you are visible.

    A way to save money - sign-up for a trial account that may give you "a 7-day window to use the service" if you pay the annual fee; however, make sure you note the cancellation date or you may end-up paying for the entire year!


    Google.com [make sure you check out their "Other Products Page"] , Google's Image search, YouTube.com (part of Google), and Google's Plus (similar to Facebook); note Google makes money by selling advertising - they make this statement as related to Google Plus - "'Google may use my account information to personalize +1s on content and ads on non-Google web sites.'"
    Yahoo.com and Bing.com two other search engines to work with that are also popular.
    Facebook has become popular not only for individuals but business and organizations to use as a social media marketing tool to gain popularity.
    LinkedIn - typically considered for business professional but also used by others.
    MySpace - was more popular before Facebook but still used by individuals. Another social connectivity resource like facebook.
    Twitter - a social networking tool - find out what’s happening, right now, with the people and organizations you are interested in (if they tweet !!!).
    Manta.com - business community where you can find out more detailed information on a business and its contacts.
    Bizapedia.com - provides free online company search and people search tools.
    CorporationWiki.com - information on 37+ million Companies and 35+ million executive.
    Netprospex.com - helps Business-to-Business companies discover and connect with millions of targeted sales prospects. Find verified contact information, including email, phone, and social media.
    LookUpAnyone.com and PublicRecords.com - comprehensive people search resources to use; costs/fees to access (I have no experience with them).
    pipl.com - search engine that claims to be the "most comprehensive people search on the Web"; dive into the deep Web to bring you results you won't find in any other search engine then we use a powerful identity resolution engine to link those seemingly disparate results into a set of meaningful profiles so you can easily find the person you are looking for.
    Radaris - another comprehensive people search resource to use.
    Spoke.com - another comprehensive people search resource to use.
    SocialDiligence.com - a social media search tool.
    Ancestry.com - looking for close relatives, family tree, divorce, marriage, birth, death records?
    Archives.com - claims to have an extensive database of images, newspapers, vital records, and more for your ancestors' historical records.
    Areaconnect.com - a resource that has access to local Yellow Pages, White Pages, search, directories, news, weather and more.
    411.info - looking for phone numbers, addresses, reverse look-ups?
    Netronline.com- gain entrance to those official state Web resources that provide online access to property tax and related information. Check out the State of Wisconsin info and local Dane County examples below.

    and

    Wisconsin and local resources examples:
