Re: Any negative ramifications for using multiple-Google-account sign-in setup?

I have noticed recently Google telling me to manage my privacy by signing in. I might have been born in the dark but it was not last night. All I use is Google mail. Google is another privacy thief like Facebook. I use Google search for a home page and they keep trying to get me to sign up. No Fxxxx...

Re: UEFI for cold newbies

I bought a standard Dell laptop a couple years ago and decided to keep it with W10 as I have two older Acer laptops given to me that I have been running Mint 18.0 on for some years. That is my dual boot method. Solves a lot of issues. I don't care to spend a lot of time on the Mint forums trying to ...

Re: Boring Mint??

Boring Mint?
Let get real folks. Mint is a tool. I am a retired mechanic. All my tools are boring.
I have a real life and it is exciting. Bicycle riding and dancing. A variety of dance partners. It was like that before retiring. End of subject.

Re: How can I play my smartphone's music in a car that has just radio/CD? (pic included)

I needed the Bluetooth adapter for cars because the iPhone does not have an audio jack, only Bluetooth.
Corolla radio has an audio jack.
Camry radio has no audio jack.

Re: Who no longer trusts or uses Facebook?

Soon after I signed up for FB I disabled my email address. I hear from friends every so often the someone hacked their FB email account. lol
I change FB password regularly.

He also has a free telephone with big display for people who have hearing issues that show what people are saying. It is called Caption Call. Recommended by his hear...

The device shown is what I use with my iPhone. Works very well when using GPS. I bought mine through Amazon. Cheap enough. Used it in a Toyota Camry and a Toyota Corolla. Edit. I did notice if I am listening to music with my iPhone when I get into the car with my Bluetooth hearing aids, the device c...

Re: When did you come to Linux?

Around Dec. 2003. I bought a Desktop PC from Walmart with Lindows OS on it. Upgraded over the years and long gone. Only use laptops now. Story in the bottom of my messages.
Much of the time, on my iPhone.
