Bitcoin Just Hit $7300. Here's Why It Could Hit $100,000 And Why You Need To Buy Some Now.

1. Goldman Sachs Is Reportedly Hiring 'Blockchain Experts' and rumors are they are planning a crypto exchange.
2. Futures Trading has been approved by both CME, the world's largest options exchange as well as the (CBOE) Chicago Board Options Exchanges.
3. Amazon is rumored to be considering accepting Bitcoin as payment for its products, following competitor Overstock.com which already accepts Bitcoin.
4. Bitcoin adoption has reached 'critical mass' with the general public and many mainstream institutions accepting it as 'legit'.  Mainstream publications such as Fortune and Time are featuring cover stories on it.
5. The cryptocurrency and blockchain industry is experiencing tremendous job growth and features higher pay and better benefits than comparable positions.
6. There will only ever be 21 million Bitcoins.  The Bitcoin protocol doesn't allow for any more.  Overwhelming demand meeting this very limited supply is causing and will continue to cause the price of Bitcoin to explode.  Some are forecasting it could hit $100,000 and even $1,000,000 within a few years. 
7. Coinbase added 100,000 new accounts in the past 30 days due to the exploding value of Bitcoin and the upcoming forks which in essence give you free money by owning Bitcoin.  This is something you don't want to miss out on.

The time to buy Bitcoin is NOW.  You don't have to buy an entire Bitcoin.  Even a hundred dollars worth could be worth a nice chunk of cash if Bitcoin keeps increasing in value dramatically.   

Coinbase is the world's most popular Bitcoin account and easiest way to buy Bitcoin, especially in the beginning.  Do it now and get $10 in Free Bitcoin when opening an account when using this link:  https://www.coinbase.com/join/592fdc667dd174037610ab73

The first time I thought about getting a VPN or Virtual Private Network, was when I was on vacation in europe and I found to my dismay I couldn't access my Netflix account to watch the latest episodes of Breaking Bad.  It hadn't occurred to me until then that lots of countries actually block content from other countries.  A friend suggested I get a VPN which would allow me to spoof a US IP address no matter where I was so I could continue to watch my US Netflix shows and so I got one...a buggy, slow, expensive one...but it worked at least.

Fast forward to today, several years later where I've discovered a world of shows, movies, news and tons of websites that are located all over the world that I never had access to before I started using Windscribe.  I routinely watch live British news shows and television shows right from the comfort of my home in Los Angeles by using a British IP address so that I can access British tv and web unhindered.  I do the same with French and German sites as well as several countries in eastern europe and even Russia.  It's amazing what you start finding once the world is unlocked.


There's other reasons to use a Virtual Private Network beyond just unlocking content however.  I personally don't like Google, Apple, Microsoft and frankly all sorts of other companies and advertisers knowing where i'm surfing on the web all the time.  I don't like the idea of being tracked by advertising bots and cookies that target advertising to me and keep records of every site I've been to.  With Windscribe you not only get to surf the whole world's web unfiltered but if you choose you also remain hidden from all those tracking bots and advertising cookies.  Windscribe is not only a VPN, it also has several additional features and a special browser plug-in that blocks most advertising and trackers so that you can surf the web privately.  Trust me...this is awesome...it gives you a sense of freedom to know that nobody is looking over your shoulder while surfing the web.

So why Windscribe you might ask?  Afterall there are a lot of VPN's out there.  Well frankly, I've tried about half a dozen of the leading VPNs and when I evaluate the entire experience, meaning performance, features, ease of use, reliability and price I have to give the prize to Windscribe.  Seriously, i'm not joking.  Several other VPNs I have used have had performance issues.  My connection will get hung up, or download speeds will be slow.   Sometimes I find that popular websites or forums are blocking other VPNs IP addresses.  I haven't had these problems with Windscribe.  Another problem I've had with some other services has to do with crashing or hanging my computer.  I've even gotten the blue screen of death using some other VPNs.  I've never, not even once had that happen with Windscribe.  It's rock solid and works every. single. time.   


Something else I like with Windscribe is that once you have an account, they have versions for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android all included so you can use it on your pc, phone tablet...wherever.  Just as importantly Windscribe is a GREAT deal.  I'm not just saying that.  You can sign up for a free plan to try it out and right off the bat it gives you 10GB. That's a LOT of free data for a FREE plan.  With most free plans you get maybe 1 GB.  The downside of the free plan is that it only let's you use a few different IP addresses so to really start surfing the world like I do you'll want to upgrade to the PRO Plan and then you get dozens and dozens of IP addresses in tons of countries.  But frankly, it's so cheap...less than $4/month with the special 50% promo code I give you below there is absolutely no reason not to get the Pro plan.  It is SO worth it.  Trust me, this is the single best investment you can make to improve your web surfing experience and frankly LEARNING experience. 

There is so much new content out there in other countries that you simply don't even realize exists until you start using Windscribe and start searching around with the country specific versions of Google, Bing, Yahoo and others.  I've linked the Windscribe site below so you can sign up for either the free or pro version.   My guess is that once you try it you're going to be hooked.  I can't believe I waited so long to start using a VPN.  Now I probably use it for over 50% of my web surfing.  I just love being anonymous and also being able to watch content and visit sites in other countries I just didn't know existed until I started using it. 

Make sure to check out all the free BBC, Sky TV and more once you connect using a British IP...I recently have been watching the original British versions of american shows...it's so cool to be able to do that....and also to see the live news broadcasts in other countries that are usually blocked to us in the U.S.  Practically every country has even more country specific programming and web content you'll discover as well. I've arranged a special 50% off deal that you can access by clicking the blue link below and then using the promo code 'WS50OFF' when paying for the Pro version.  With the discount it's $45 for the entire year.  That's less than $4 a month!  Do it now and sign up so you don't forget...you can thank me later.

Nexus 10 Help / Re: Battery life
« Last post by mgotts on September 22, 2017, 12:59:51 PM »
I bought my Nexus 10 as a Xmas present to myself Dec of 2012.  Battery finally started being flaky and suddenly dropping to 0% anytime it approached 50% in summer of 2015.  Searched for a replacement battery, and though places listed it they were always out of stock or back ordered.  Finally in Dec 2015 one of the places (encompassparts.com) notified me that they were getting them in stock.  Bought one; it was a solid Samsung manufactured replacement; installed it using the video link they provided; and my Nexus 10 is still running strong (cross fingers...) today.  Recommended.

The replacement cost me $87 + $10 shipping.  Well worth it.  I can watch a 2-hr movie on a plane and still have 75% battery left.  3-4 hours of heavy web browsing, including short videos, etc will take it near 50%.  It's back to normal, battery-life wise.

I've still got mine running Android 4.3, which is what it was designed for, does not have the various wifi bugs (for the N10, anyways) in later versions, is tablet optimized (unlike later versions), etc.  Used a permission app that worked against unintentionally exposed permission interface in 4.3 to suppress the "update" notifications.  So I just chug along, works great, have run into occasional issues where an app will only run on new Android, but I don't care.  Nothing essential.

It will be five years old this Dec, which is like 50 tablet years.  I've probably got 5,000+ hours of screen time on the thing.  Will be very sad when I've finally got to move on.

I don't think there's anyway of reconditioning the battery.  Your best bet would be to explore ways of having it replaced...maybe it's a project you could do yourself.  There are places you could take it but they'll probably charge you at least $100 or more...might not be worth it.    I would just do it yourself as there are good tutorials and videos out there... it's not that difficult to replace the batteries on tablets and phones...the hard part is just opening the unit without making a mess of the case and breaking the screen. 

Doing a quick search it seems there's a really good video tutorial and replacement battery available.  The battery itself isn't that expensive and can be purchased with a video tutorial on Amazon here:

Here's the video :

Nexus 10 Help / Battery life
« Last post by Mike Fox on August 24, 2017, 07:22:47 AM »
Searched the forum on battery life and not much there.  My N10 is 4 years old with heavy use; I expect a decrease in time when the battery is exhausted.  I'm down to 1 hour and 15 minutes.  Installed battery monitor app with a graph of percent charge (100% to 0%) vs time.  Found it very interesting.  From 100% the charge went down at a 45 angle to about 65 % over an hour and 15 minutes; then 'Power Off" appeared the my N10 shut down.  Put the N10 on charger and rebooted after 30 minutes.  The graph showed the charge went from 65% straight down to 0%; then on the charger, it went from 0% to 35% over about 20 minutes with a 30 degree angle and then straight up to 100%.  It appears I have 35% use of the battery after 4 years.  Is there any way to recondition this battery to recover its potential?

Nexus 10 Help / Re: JellyBean 5.1.1 update question
« Last post by Babyfacemagee on August 11, 2017, 04:36:39 AM »
Unless you have the apk for the previous version stored somewhere I don't know if there is a way of uninstalling.  You might just have to wait until the next revision comes out and hope that it takes care of the bugs.  I would definitely report the issues you're having though to Google in their message and support areas online.  They might know of the issue and have a fix and if not you can tell them and they can pass the info on and have the next version include a fix.

Nexus 10 Help / JellyBean 5.1.1 update question
« Last post by Rob C on July 07, 2017, 07:02:10 AM »
Hi,
Not much of a tech guy so want to ask
I just downloaded Android JellyBean 5.1.1 which I believe is the latest version.
All well EXCEPT at Google after the install, some sites load noticeably slower than others (I THINK)
(I think 5.1.1 was just for minor bug fixes and performance enhancements).
Anyone know how I can back out of the latest update and run the previous version?
Thanks very much.
Rob
