PROTECTING  YOUR TECH: 

— Be Careful Where You Click

— Be Careful What You Download

  • Android apps may be riskier than Apple iPhone & iPad apps

— Be Careful  Even If You Use Antivirus Software

  • AV software may not protect you from the latest threats – especially if you’re a business

—  Be Careful When You Buy

  • Use apps like Dynamite Deals to make sure you’re always getting the lowest price (Free: www.dynamitedeals.com )

For centuries, people having been searching for a way to make themselves disappear at will. I have perfected the technique, and I demonstrated it today on live television!

How to make yourself disappear on live TV

Here’s my secret (warning: this is dangerous — don’t try this at home, and especially not while wearing a kilt!):

Step 1: Find a gorgeous “fitness model” wearing tight spandex. I recommend using Endomondo.com spokes-hottie Lacie Weddle (see video).

Step 2: Just in case that’s not distracting enough for the audience, further upstage yourself with a handsome anchorman wearing a kilt.

Step 3: Just stand next to them. If you look like me, no one will ever even notice you’re there!

See for yourself!
