  • Capitalism will kill itself if it hasn't done so already.  I'm all for making an honest buck if it not only benefits me but others as well.  Do you believe MS, Google and Applle are really living ...
  • With you on that one.  Just add up all those sneeky little monthly and yearly charges X a few million and guess what?  Can't really put full blame on MS when Google virtually invented the "pay or ...
  • You are a genius!! Thanks so much.  All back to normal.  I was about to try my full Acronis back up but there could be more problems with that fix than bargained for.  This reinstall worked very ...
  • Appreciate the offer however the previous OS, W7, has functioned perfectly for years and I would like to get it reinstalled.  Last night I tried a few times to put the system to sleep as I have ...
  • Ed, certainly a good endorsement for W10 and good to see you are very happy with it.  The main plus-up for 10 is to work across many platforms.  However, for desktop only use going from W7 to 10 ...
  • I have them all, well, most of them, and I now believe the SX60hs has been kicked around more than it deserves.  Yes, at full tele it gets to be a handful, even a bit blotchy unless held really ...
  • MS Edge is a huge setback.  MSN all over it.  Fortunately the old reliable IE and Firefox is still available.  Once MS finds the browser competition is too much to bare it may well kill off these ...
  • Try a look at www.tomshardware.com/.  An article on MS not verifying their claim that a user can go back to W7 / 8.1 if they don't like W10.  It would seem that it can't be done as MS takes away ...
  • Well, that may be one plus-up for W10.  Hardly noticeable but it may be so.  Other than that the 'Edge' browser is a disaster with many other MS apps either not functioning or take you on a never ...
  • If you want to double the reach of your FZ200 try the Canon SX50hs.  It does a very good job for an "all-in-one" travel camera.  That is if you can find one, even a referb.  I only use FZs for ...
  • I did so yesterday. I would now advise anyone to hold back and if you have a good stable W7 or W8.1 to simply hang in there. It is available free for a year. For desktop only use W10 is a bit of a ...
  • Well, I now have it replacing my W7 and so far I have set it up to look a lot like W7.  I will give it a bit to wear in but not all that impressed.  I do believe it works as intended but overall ...
  • Unless they use a form of digital zoom to obtain 100x there is little doubt it's just a dreadful rummer. The way digital tech has advanced, to correct a lot of limitations in lens design, it just ...
  • Right!!!  :-)
  • There isn't a single reason that comes to mind why a single OS can't be applied to all types of computing devices.  It's a matter of choices to get that preferred ui and that means getting rid of ...
  • Windows 10 is an OS for the masses and the intention is to provide a system that is compatible across all devices. I believe they will succeed and perhaps even the biggest doubters will be happily ...
  • Dale, you sure pegged this one!  I would never have thought of that fix.  These cameras are getting ever more complex and less intuitive. At least for us old-timers.  :-|
  • First, set the cam to AUTO mode.  Go into the menu (wrench/hammer) and go down to "Reset All" click the right side of the 4-way to enter, move to the OK box, click the set button.  You now have a ...
  • Yes, it will initially show up set on auto ISO but you then select what you want pressing the right side of the 4-way.  This moves the ISO up in increments.  Once on the ISO desired just set it ...
  • The SX30 was a huge disappointment after the SX10/20 iterations. The SX60 also is getting a bad rap, somewhat deserved.  The SX50 is still king of the SZs.  Get it while you can.
