Digital picture frames are awesome. I have one at work, my wife has one at home, and we gave my parents one for Christmas this year.

Just traded in your Blackberry for a shiny new iPhone? Here's how to transfer contacts from your old Blackberry to your new iPhone, and without buying anything extra along the way (completely free solution).

We'll do this in two main steps:

The iPhone's built-in camera makes it easy to snap decent quality photos, but the process for copying those photos to your computer using iTunes is clunky and a little different than you'd expect from most digital cameras.

Question: How do I connect my Bluetooth wireless phone with my laptop, so that I can send and receive files?

Wondering how to convert your DVD movies into a video format that will run on your new iPhone or iPod?

I looked at two programs that rip DVDs into mp4 video format for both the Mac and PC.

Question: I've heard of companies finding data that people thought they had deleted from their work computer. How do they do that? Might be good information in case I accidentally delete some important files from my home computer too!

Question: I need to have my notebook reconfigured but do not want to lose the programs. Can I move them to an external drive and then return them to my notebook as it is reconfigured? What is the best way to do this?

Answer: 

On a default Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 installation, every time you try to install or run a program (or do just about anything), it prompts you to ask if you really want to do this.

Question: How do I turn off the security prompt in Windows that pops up and says it needs my permission to continue. This is happening on a school website I go into on a regular basis.

Answer: Is this the prompt you're talking about?

One thing that really annoys me are programs that Windows thinks everyone should have running on their system - regardless of whether you want them or not.
