A Tip For Ipad Users and More!

September 18, 2011 · 77 comments

in Link Round Up, Misc Tips

Here are some random thoughts for me to share:

Does the home button on your Ipad ever stop working?  This happened to me recently, and it was quite frustrating. After searching the internet, a found a strange solution at this website:

Tip For Getting The Home Button Working Again On The Ipad:

Hold the Ipad in landscape mode.  Push the home button down, and keep it pressed down while rotating the Ipad into the portrait position.  Once the Ipad is in portrait mode, release the home button. Oddly and inexplicably enough, this worked for me.  I will have to keep my eye on this though as I will want this taken care of before the warranty expires if it does happen again.

Adaptu

If you look at the left sidebar of this site, you will see a link for Adaptu.   Adaptu is a fantastic site that offers FREE financial management tools, and all you have to do is sign up.  Users can input financial information to monitor expenses, investment performance, growth (hopefully!) of net worth, and more.  In addition, users can join the Adaptu community to discuss money matters, and just about all aspects in life are covered (including marriage, family, health, retirement, etc).   Basically, just about everyone could benefit from managing their money better, and Adaptu can help people do just that, and at the low low cost of… nothing!

Bills.com

Again, on the left sidebar of the site is a link for Bills.com.  Whereas you can calculate a mortgage payment right from my sidebar, you can also click on the Bills.com badge to go to the Bills.com website.  This site contains a wealth of information regarding home financing. As a matter of fact, I clicked on Bill.com from my own website just last week as I am considering refinancing.   So, check out the site if you own a home, or are considering buying one.  The site doesn’t just provide rate information, they provide all kinds of advice and information about refinancing and such.

Google Plus 1 (Google +1)

I now display the Google Plus One widget on the RIGHT sidebar. If you have a Google Plus account, it would great if you ‘plus one’d’ my site!  I have been ‘plus one’ing’ all over the place lately!

Now on to Random Links:

101 Centavos stopped subscribing to a financial newsletter, and after reading the post, I realized I kind of miss an old newsletter I used to read!

Barb Friedberg Personal Finance talks about jumping in when you have an idea, and to kick fear to the door.   I think this is absolutely fantastic advice. Quite often, I used to over-think an idea, and talk myself out of it before I even started. I even over-thought when it came to my blog. I bought the website months before I actually posted. Then one day, I sat down and wrote.  It was so hard to hit publish that first time, but I am so glad I did! Great, great advice Barb.

Budgeting In the Fun Stuff shares her passion for budgets and how her open personality affected relationships. Sometimes I think thatwhen it comes to money, people don’t want to discuss the topic because it may affect how they view their own spending habits.  One of the great things about life is it is a long journey, and there are always new people to find common interests and bond with.

Faithful With A Few writes about 101 year old Texana Hollis of Detroit. Hollis lived with her son, who kind of neglected to pay taxes and a few other things, and Hollis ended up being evicted from her home. I was going to write about this very story, but Khaleef’s post reflected my thoughts exactly, so I will just send you his way…

Financial Samurai wants to give me $250,000 of my own money (from Kris of the future), and I can do anything I want with it.  First thing to go- my mortgage.  I know, rates are low and I shouldn’t pay it off, blah blah.  Well, I want that piece of mind of being debt free!

First Gen American has gone shroomin’ with Babci. However, even Babci has her standards regarding where she will pick mushrooms… (and a neighbor’s yard is not off limits though!)

Invest It Wisely writes a fabulous post about 9/11.  He not only recounts the feelings of that day, but also what we can learn from what happened. I know I will never, ever forget where I was as the horror was unfolding.  I never felt like I was immediately in danger, but I also knew I didn’t want to be alone. Anyway, there are some great words to live by in this post, and it is worth every minute it takes to read it.

KrantCents discusses Decision Fatigue.  It is very interesting because I have always thought of myself as a morning person.  Maybe that is because my brain can’t handle much in the afternoon because it is just ‘fatigued’. Remind me not to schedule afternoon doctor appointments!

Len Penzo asks if it is really better to have two incomes than one.  I totally agree with one point (and the whole post):  quite often, people spend as much as they make, and financial risk is there whether you have two incomes or one.   People take out mortgages based on two incomes, buy expensive cars, etc.   Some people will just always spend as much (or more) than the household takes in.

Living in Financial Excellence has repaired his glasses.  They may not be perfect, but they work!  This post brought back so many memories of the times I broke my glasses to bits as a kid!

Mom’s Plans wrote a previous confession post about her family’s debt load.  She now is sharing her plan to knock out the debt for good. Suggestions are requested and appreciated, so if you have thoughts or experience regarding debt payoff, stop by her site and share!

Money Reasons wants to live a middle class life now instead of being an aristocrat in the past.  Actually, I totally agree.  No amount of money could have bought cold air in the summer or nice plumbing way back when, and I just love comfort!

MoneyCone writes about how following Warren Buffett can be ‘injurious’ to your wealth.  Well, he is becoming injurious to my health because just seeing him is raising my blood pressure these days, and there is more to come!

Retire By 40 just closed the deal on his 4-plex.  This is a very informative post, especially if you have ever considered investing in rental property.  Congrats on getting the deal done RB40!

Single Mom, Rich Mom is back from a nice long vacation. Not pointing to one specific post, rather her whole site. I didn’t realize she had a few posts I didn’t catch since she returned, so just go check out her site in general.

Squirreler’s discusses inheritance and if people plan on distributing their assets evenly amongst the kids or not. Right now, my assets are going to be split into thirds, but that may change if one of my children become needy for a legitimate reason when they are older.

Watson Inc is also back, after a hiatus of a few months!  I have really missed Roshawn’s thoughtful posts and insights.

Wealth Informatics has an incredible post about everyday uses for ordinary products.  This article should be bookmarked by all, it is incredibly helpful.

Thank you for reading!
