b2ap3_thumbnail_iphone_data_400.jpgSome business owners rely on their iPhone for a lot more than just work-related functions. With so many applications and whatnot consuming your phone’s processing power, your iPhone’s battery can quickly get drained. This, in turn, drains your productivity.

b2ap3_thumbnail_dyre_wolf_phishing_400.jpgWith spring arriving, “winter is coming” as the new season of the critically-acclaimed television series Game of Thrones returns to millions of viewers worldwide.

b2ap3_thumbnail_tip_watch_your_competitors_400.jpgNo matter what kind of business you run, you’re likely to gain many friends and allies in the war of entrepreneurship.

b2ap3_thumbnail_creditcard_security_400.jpgIdentity theft is commonplace on the Internet, and if you’re not careful with how you approach your browsing, you could potentially leak sensitive information to hackers.

b2ap3_thumbnail_proactive_it_support_400.jpgIT can be a tricky concept to the business owner, and we all know how touchy technology can be at times.

Google’s worldwide popularity has even turned its name into a verb: “to google,” or to search for something using Google.

b2ap3_thumbnail_password_management_400.jpgHave you ever been prompted to change your password, then forgotten what the new one was twenty seconds later? Changing passwords consistently is a good practice, but let’s face it; unless you have them put away somewhere, you are probably going to forget about them at least once (unless you use a post-it note on your monitor, which is never a good idea). Additionally, if passwords are short and easily guessable, you risk being targeted by a phishing attack or other hacking attack.

b2ap3_thumbnail_ie_reports_found_400.jpgMicrosoft’s Internet Explorer is one of the most widely used web browsers, despite the fact that it has a tendency to crash from time to time. In order to improve the product and prevent future bugs, glitches, and crashes, IE creates an error report after every crash. Most of these reports go unsent, or so Microsoft thought.

b2ap3_thumbnail_tricks_using_an_ipad_400.jpgWe all need a little magic in our lives now and again. For some, this means card tricks, or optical illusions that are designed to trick the eye into seeing something that isn’t there.
