Just a quick post on this cool organizer I came across recently. It’s called the Cocoon and you can use it to organize all your electronic gadgets (mouse, digital camera, iphone, tablet, flash drives), cords, accessories, etc. when you travel. The one pictured is less than $12 and comes in several colors. It also comes in different sizes. http://amzn.to/1zAMQsZ

If you own an iPad or iPhone and want to use it to fill out forms, then you need to use the Autofill feature. This feature will make requesting a free sample, filling out any type of form or entering contests fast and simple.
1. Set up a Contact with your personal information (I suggest using a different email address from your personal or business address for entering contests)
2. Enable the Autofill feature through Safari settings.
3. Use the Autofill feature when presented with an entry form.
Due to their increasing popularity, mobile gadgets like iPads are targets for hackers through use of malevolent applications (apps). Apps are programs for mobile gadgets and can harbor malware for stealing your user info. The best practice is purchase popular apps which are more likely to be legitimate. Follow the same safe practices as you do when on a computer: 1) be careful when on public Wi-Fi networks, 2) don’t enter personal information on unverified Websites and 3) don’t click on links in email or text messages unless you’re expecting them.
Supposedly you shouldn’t have to worry about getting apps from iTunes as Apple screens those prior to posting. But, it is still possible that your personal information could be accessed by hackers. Your best strategy is to purchase popular apps as they are more likely to be legitimate.
