Today’s Geek Squeaks – July 24, 2013

A summary of today’s Geek Squeaks:

  • Upcoming Technology – Use your phone AND tiles to create the world’s largest lost and found;
  • How to (step-by-step) boot Windows 8.1 directly to the desktop (to bypass the Windows 8 Start Screen);
  • FREE software to change your Windows background on a pre-determined time schedule using numerous image sources available on the internet (Note:  This one is one of my favorites…);
  • With the demise of Google Reader, I highly recommend you give Feedly a try.  It is all that I use to pull down all my News sources and to monitor other tech blogs; AND,
  • Keep yourself safe when driving, with this one touch dashboard mount for your mobile phone.
