April 13, 2017

Honestly I need a constant guide for my computer, my phone and my IPad.  I’m sure this has happened to some or maybe all of you at one time or another.  A software update comes along and all of a sudden nothing is recognizable on your screen.  Well, that is what happened to me the […]
