Help! I started using google calendar on my iphone 5 about two weeks ago. Now items get deleted from all versions of the calendar, doesn't matter where I add them (phone, macbook etc). I constantly have to retrieve them from the bin. If I add directly from the iphone app, the don't seem to sync with anything else. According to Google, this is an IOS problem. I don't care who's fault it is, I need it fixed. Please!
How do you create your newsletters for Dotto Tech Apps Wednesdays, various webinars, etc? Do you use a service similar to Mail Chimp or do you created them yourself?
Btw, they are always have a very sharp and professional appearance.
@Dottotech Sir I am your big fan as i love gadgets,automation and integrating multiple apps to make life easier. However, having so many apps(My favs: Todoist,Evernote,GMAIL,Google Calendar &EasilyDo),still unable to keep track events and todo tasks as none of them provide one interface to track both Events and Tasks. Also there is no Pop Up Reminders or Voice Reminders for these events/todo tasks. Could you please share if any such solution out there...to see both events/tasks(could be todoist/gmail etc.,) under one interface and getting pop up /Voice Reminders. Your help will be much appreciated
Hi Steve. Is there any way to transfer WhatsApp chats from your old android phone to an iPhone (new)?
I've looked for a solution everywhere but they say that WhatsApp chats are backed up on Google drive but it's not possible to transfer them from the google drive to iCloud and hence transfer of WhatsApp messages is possible from one android phone to another but not from an android to an iPhone
I'd love to be able to use the Chrome browser on my Mac, but, no matter what I do, every time I open Chrome a continuous stream of old extensions try to reload and new extensions I install do not appear. I delete the old extensions, but when I reopen, they all try to install again. The only way to use Chrome is to NEVER close it after you get everything set the way you want it. What gives?
After installing and setting up Google Apps Sync on my computer successfully, I received an error that says, "Google Apps Sync is only available for Google Apps for Business and Google Apps for Education accounts. Free Gmail accounts are not supported."
Dottotech, is there another outlook to google syncing program that will work with free gmail accounts?
+dottotech Thanks! The link gave some paid alternatives as well as a free one called Calendar Sync. There is a paid version of Calendar Synce that has greater capabilities; but the free version met my needs.
Thanks for all your work on this channel and the very useful information provided!
I have been using Blockless at your prompting and have had no problem with this service,,,,,, but I am concerned with news that Netflix will be trying to block access for Canadians to US Netflix. Will Blockless protect me for this action?
"If you use Google with a work or school email address (or a personal address that doesn’t end in @gmail.com or @googlemail.com), you won’t see the Contacts preview just yet. We’re working on adding some additional features for you, and plan to launch the Contacts preview for all our users soon."
So only if you use a standard Google account, and not a Google Apps account.
Did I do something wrong?
After I loaded and signed into received following message
“Authorization has been granted successfully. Please switch to your application”.
“error signing in – Goggle Apps is only available for Business Apps and Google Apps for Educational accounts. Free Google accounts are not supported”
Google app fixes Can I use outlook with my google app email
I have a Picasa account, and there is a feature I really appreciate. I can give someone access to my photos and ALSO later remove them from being able to see them. Is that feature available when you establish a link to a photo you have made in Google Photos? Will that person always have the ability to go back and have access to that photo, or can you eventually deny them access at a later time. Thank you Johnny Rotten
The problem is not that Facebook and Google are the only advertising platforms. The problem is that they are considered mainstream media and without these two, the trend of cryptocurrencies gaining legitimacy is delayed. That is right, I said delayed not blocked or prevented.
The World Has Changed.
Five years ago, when bitcoin was unknown to most people, this might have been a fatal move. Today is a different story. I recently traveled to a remote mountain town in the interior of Mexico. Everyone I met had heard about Bitcoin and eyes lit up with excitement when I ask if I could pay for lunch with bitcoin.
Today are dozens of websites dedicated to cryptocurrencies, either holding them, exchanging them or just writing about them. Probably the most effective advertising remains on Google, it is called Google Search and it is free.
If someone wants to learn about owning bitcoin or any other currency, there is a ton of educational information.

Not All Regulation Is Inherently Bad.
If we examine the full spectrum of regulation to this point on a global scale there is one common target most everywhere. That is the practice of exchanges. So far there has been little or not regulation, threatened or enacted, to protect investors from loss of funds due to security breaches.
Capitulation Is A Good Sign.
