Re: Win10 over-rode my settings to prevent Updates

That was another reason why I left a new HP laptop with W10 on it alone and kept an Acer with Mint. Lot less troubles.
I use to dual boot with Windows up until W8 before but no more.
I only dual or triple boot on the Acer with Linux.
I need a good W10 PC for my iPhone and iPad and Apple music.

Re: Google is STILL tracking you — here's how to limit it

Thanks. I only use Gmail once in a while. On my PC, I always clear History every time I close FF and never allow third party cookies. Clear everything else. I do not sign in to Google. They keep trying to get me to protect my browser when I open FF. Who are they kidding? I use Google search page as ...

Re: Whats everyone currently listening to?

Local Blues music. My hearing aids have bluetooth and my iPhone has the music. Anywhere, anytime. Nice. Sometimes at a dance with a band during intermission and no music, I put one hearing aid in my dance partner and the other in my ear and we do a dance. Amazes everyone since they cannot hear the m...

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 ...

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

Work great with iPhone when working out or out riding my bicycle for phone calls. Edit. Forgot to mention the brand, ReSoundCN. A US Navy Vet so not exp...
