TIP OF THE WEEK: BUTTERSCOTCH
Almost everyone likes butterscotch, right? Well if you do you will like it even better now. Butterscotch is now online, you cannot taste it, however you can use this website to get free video training on hordes of subjects, programs and more.
How about free tutorials on MS Word 2007, Blackberry Basics, Finer Points of FACEBOOK, Buying and Selling on Ebay, adding your Photos to Flickr, using gmail and Google Earth and so much more.
As well, Butterscotch has a downloads section where you can get some free software, shareware and demo programs for every computer system.
TRY THIS EXAMPLE VIDEO ON Ebay Shopping
Thanks to Gerry Timm of Sarnia, Ontario, Canada for this great tip.

YouTube has made a major change in that you can now have your own channel and watch what you pick without all the other junk.
Getting ready for when TV goes online and away from the old way of viewing a show via TV set. Imagine the landfill sites with old TVs?

There just might be some hope for wanna bee users of Boot Camp. “Dechamp”, an Apple forum user offered this solution to jump start and workaround issues in Boot Camp:
I have decided not to use Apple’s Boot Camp and have now purchased a 3rd. party app called Parallels.
My Macbook will now be also a virtual machine running Windows XP Pro, Windows Visa Home Premium and Ubuntu Linux. All in a virtual mode using Parallels.
I have installed Windows Vista Home Premium thus far and it works like a charm. In fact any windoze operators would die if they saw that my Vista operating system opens as fast as you can turn on a lamp light. BAMB its on!
