Re: Personal Hot Spot?

I am not a techie, but as I understand it when you set up a personal hot spot with your IPhone you are sharing the iPhone 's connection to the Internet with another device. Since your phone is already connected to the Internet it doesn't need the hot [more]

Re: Verizon to Purchase AOL

I agree. If you have $4.4 billion to throw around it seems you would be smarter to put it into Apple or Disney stock then to buy AOL lol. - Ned

Re: Verizon to Purchase AOL

I did something similar recently, but for a different reason. I own both VZ and T, but didn't want a bigger position in either one. So I began purchasing Vanguard's telecommunications ETF (VOX)with their dividends. It broadens my telecommunications [more]

Re: P&G a Bond Substitute?

No, with the dividend achiever stocks in my portfolio I am a long term investor. Unless something unforeseen happens I will probably die with them still in my account :). - Ned

Re: P&G a Bond Substitute?

I have never owned bonds. I have used PG and several other similar stocks to fill in some of the gap in my portfolio because Of their absence. PG has raised their divided every year for over 50 years. It is one of Margent's Dividend Achievers. [more]

Re: "PHOTOS" :(

The new Photo App has been frustrating me also. Apple seems to be trying to hard to have one Photo app for all devices. What Works well in my IPhone doesn't necessarily work for my IMac. I need more editing options in my IMac then I need for my iPad. [more]

Re: SX50 Filters Question

As several others have posted I only use filters for a specific reason not for lens protection. I have always followed the adage, why spend money on a good lens and then shoot my pictures through a relatively cheap piece of glass. - Ned

Re: Apple Customer Service and Product Quality

That may be just a local issue. I have been using our local Apple Store here in Durham NC for years and have been very pleased with the service. It does get crowded at times, but usually I can time my visits to the slower periods. - Ned
