Many of my friends use Gmail but don’t realize they are taking major risks with their personal data. A good friend almost lost $100,000 this week due to security issues. You must be vigilant about protecting your computer with virus scan software, anti-spam software, using secure passwords, not using public wifi spots, and keeping an eye open for anything that seems out of the ordinary. Please take 5 minutes RIGHT NOW to better secure your Gmail/Google account. Share this important info with your friends.
Google has just implemented a very cool new feature that allows you to see what an area looked like in previous years as seen by Google Street View. This is a fascinating way to really see how an area has grown or changed over several years. I have created some quick instructions to make this easy for you to try. Go to Google Maps – www.Google.com/maps Enter an address or street and go to Street View Click on clock symbol. If you don’t have a clock symbol – there are no previous versions of Street View for that address Click on the dots of the timeline to view previous versions of Google Street View for that area. Use your mouse to rotate the view on the screen.
