I don’t use a PDA

For those people who know me or are some what familiar with me then you probably know that I am one of those "computer geeks". I do a lot of stuff online and am somewhat of an expert in computer mediated communication. I enjoy using technology and am amazed at how much it can help…

Are People with ADD Scrollers or Clickers?

A couple of months ago I wrote an entry titled Scrolling is not ADD Friendly. After viewing a few different web sites I had become very annoyed at the fact that I had to do a lot of scrolling to find basic information. To tell you the truth I can’t even remember what those sites…

I usually just forward the emails to the abuse department of what ever company the email is pretending to be from and go about the rest of my day. However I got one today that just really set me off. Maybe it’s because in the past week I have also been bombarded with the Sober Worm that keeps being sent to me too.

The one I got today claimed to be from Amazon and claimed that they had reason to believe that somebody was trying to use my account to illegally sell items on Amazon. They claim that they are investigating this situation and that I need to confirm my identity with Amazon. They provide a link for me to go to and log into my Amazon account.
