"Simple Stuff"

A grab bag of topics for the interested beginner.  You know who you are ... the first comment to me is usually "I don't know anything about ...", or "Bob, Quick question ..."   <grin>

Topics covered today:  CNet's 2014 Predictions, Techie email Newsletters to Follow, Checking Virus Warnings, Disk Cleanup, Net Neutrality Ruling, Aereo in the Supreme Court, Free Microsoft Office Books, Java Update (again), Security Questions, Windows Backup - It's Good! and interesting pictures and videos.
