  • 2:05 pm Tuesday, February 6th, 2018 by jojooneal95

I’m trying not to get all misty-eyed over this news. I’ve lived through reel-to-reel tape recorders, vinyl records, 8-tracks, Cassettes, DATs (Digital Audio Tapes), Mini Discs, and CDs. And now the new technology has taken over.

We’re living in a digital age and a lot of people are using digital downloads and streaming services for their music.

Time marches on. Some stores are now removing CDs from their shelves.

Best Buy is the latest. The stores will stop selling CDs in all their stores.

Netflix Subscribers Targeted in Email Scam

  • 5:33 pm Thursday, February 1st, 2018 by jojooneal95

Netflix subscribers beware. Some have reported receiving suspicious emails that claim their membership must be revalidated and sensitive information should be provided in order to do so. The email scam attempts to steal information from subscribers.

An email instructs subscribers to enter billing information, like credit card numbers, on the Netflix website via a link that takes them to their account on the site’s page — but the link doesn’t actually go to a real Netflix web page. Instead, internet users are directed to a fraudulent site.

A woman claims that Director, Producer, Actor, Tyler Perry is raising her son without her and that she is married to Tyler….but wait, there’s more, she says she’s never seen Tyler face-to-face! Wait, what?
