Free Wi-Fi - Barnes Noble, Starbucks too

If you live in a college town then free wifi is normally as common as binge drinking and panty raids but in other towns or cities you may be out of luck. I mostly frequent locally owned coffee shops here in Boulder, CO who provide free wifi but sometimes when I'm on the road and unable to locate an independent coffee shop I'll cross over to the dark side for an hour or two.

Disable iPhone Backup to speed up iTunes Sync

One of iTunes most annoying features is it's insistence to do a full backup every time you plug in your iPhone. You know the drill, you're dashing out the door to go for a run or you're off to the gym and remember that you want to listen to the latest podcast from the BBC. You plug in the iPhone, fire up iTunes and hit the sync button only to be met by an annoying "Backing up Richard's iPhone" status message that just sits there for ever while your precious leisure time ticks away.

E tour and Travel - Scammers - Rude - 100 complaints lodged at the Florida Better Business Bureau - etourandtravel

We've all gotten harassed by telemarketers from time to time and most if not all of them know that if you ask to be removed from their "do not call list" then by law the have to. E tour and Travel out of Orlando, FL however seems to be playing by a different set of rules as well as flogging the promise of a cheap $99 Orlando vacation. They are also perhaps the rudest bunch of wankers that I've ever come across! (Note: if you have an iPhone see this article I just wrote that will show you how to block their number)

Dog Walking & Sitting in Boulder - It's a Dog's Life

I'm helping my good friend Peggy Lloyd drum up some more business via the interwebs. Peggy, the undisputed dog walking queen of Boulder, has had her dog walking business, "It's a Dog's Life" for the past 14 years. Here's her pitch:

The good old days, remember dial-up internet access?

Trying to get a friend's old laptop online - the beast is running windows 98 with no wifi or ethernet cable. I toyed with the ideal of throwing in an old PCMCIA wifi card but a Windows 98 machine permanently connected to the intewebs is a security nightmare waiting to happen.
