DigameXtra Alert!
I am no longer rewriting every email address or confusing bit of text. I will post it as you send it. If your submission text includes a phone number without including an email, I will assume you do not want your email address posted, only the phone number will appear. If you don’t want to send a phone contact that is ok, but then you must include your email. If you don’t include either, I will copy your email address from the Sender box and use that, without modifying it or inserting spaces. If you make a mistake that gets posted, your correction request must be sent in within 48hrs of publication. If I make a mistake, notify me within 48hrs and I will correct it asap. -Ed.

How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your pics into a single collage pic by using this free (you need to provide email) online tool. So by using this tool, each pic submitted may actually be many more pics combined. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Tech Tips by DoctorLaptop

While you’re sleeping, your iPhone stays busy snooping on you- Washington Post: http://republicbroadcasting.org/news/while-youre-sleeping-your-iphone-stays-busy-snooping-on-you/


Secret Scores, Apple gives you a TRUST rating, just like you get in China – and it’s based on your phone call and email habits: https://www.thesun.co.uk/tech/7303020/apple-trust-score-phone-calls-emails/. The new system was quietly added as part of the new iOS 12 update for iPhones. In China, when your Trust (social credit) rating is low, you cannot get loans or insurance, buy airline tix, get credit cards, etc. Do you really believe Apple is not selling this info to financial firms in the rest of the world? So the next time you apply for health insurance be assured that company will scan your social media, and personal info provided by these data collectors, before determining your new rates. For example, if you’ve done a lot of Google searches for diabetes expect your rates to rise significantly, even if the searches were in regards to a friend, to Google it looks like YOU are the reason for the search. However, there is a way to benefit from these shenanigans… you can use this to your advantage. Next time you order an item from the internet, use an old, low budget computer. You will get a significantly better price than if you order using an expensive new €1500 MacBook. This is called “dynamic pricing” and it’s pretty much a given in today’s online marketplace. Basically, it means that retailers can charge you more for an item than they’re charging someone else, based on where you are, what you’ve been looking at online, and even what kind of device you’re using to shop.  https://www.csmonitor.com/Business/Saving-Money/2016/0405/How-retailers-use-dynamic-pricing-to-get-you-to-pay-more
