I don't know about you, but for years now I've been one of those people that family and friends call up with questions about pretty much anything and everything having to do with technology -- I guess the thinking is that since I've been in businesses involving computers, the Internet and cell phones for a while now, I must know a little something about any or all of those things. And they're right - with an emphasis on the word "little!"

So it got me thinking that it may be useful every once in a while to write about a topic that, while it may be something that is on the minds of my family and friends (and by extension, maybe your family and friends), they haven't yet gotten around to asking me about it -- for now I'll call it the T.A.P. ("Tech for the Average Person") series. And unfortunately it's gonna be a bit more advanced than things like "how do I set my answering machine?" (sorry mom and dad. . .) or "what is this Facebook/LinkedIn thing all about?" (if you don't know already, don't bother) -- but not by much!

So if there's anything on your mind that you've been wondering about, feel free to drop me a line at and I'll see what helpful info I can come up with for you!

    Chris this is GREAT! Not only my outside family, but my wife especially can understand why sometimes our basic tech stuff isn't "easier" to use. Or why haven't we (read "I") networked our whole house so all of our digital media is accessible from every TV in the house.

    I still haven't had time to do the simplest thing like set up our direct TV so I can control it remotely from my smartphone.

    Just because we can, doesn't mean that we have time to spend learning how, does it?
