Has anybody else here heard the commercial advertisement for Jeep in which they are navigating to Grandma's house "...over the river and through the woods..."?

Google: Data Breaches Account For Most Stolen Credentials

In a study that ran from March 2016 to March 2017, researchers from Google, the University of California, Berkeley and the International Computer Science Institute discovered that data breaches were the No. 1 way to steal users’ account credentials. Far behind them were phishing and keyloggers.

Stephen Hawking says artificial intelligence could 'destroy' humanity

Artificial intelligence could sideline and “destroy” its human creators if engineers cannot get a grip on the ethics behind it, Stephen Hawking has warned.

Speaking at the Web Summit in Lisbon, the theoretical physicist said AI has the potential to be the best or worst thing humanity has ever seen and the scary reality is we just don’t know which yet.

Windows by the numbers: Windows 7 won't shrink fast enough

Migration watch: In October, Microsoft's most popular OS continued to be Windows 7; it powered 51.4% of all Windows machines. Meanwhile, Windows 10 ran 32.8% of Windows PCs.

Windows 7 surrendered a few more users last month as its share of the overall Windows universe slipped a bit closer to 50%.

Epson ET Series Printers

If anyone is in the market for a new printer, a friend of mine told me of one a while back and I finally picked one up last week. The one I picked up is the Epson ET-3750. While this particular one may not be for everyone, the ET series in particular is what's interesting. It is an inkjet BUT it doesn't use ink cartridges. It actually has ink wells.

Popular Mechanics Smart Car Charger

I was at a Walmart this weekend and noticed a Popular Mechanics Smart Car Charger on display. I gather that it works with an app on your Smart phone to geotag where you park your vehicle when you disconnect the power cord. I am curious if anybody here has tried this yet.

What privacy?

I have Windows 10 on my laptop and Win10 comes with a calendar. I've just this past week started using the calendar. Well, a couple of days ago I opened it in the morning and found that someone (Microsoft, Google, who knows) had filled in the day of each month that my wife and I will receive our Social Security checks.

convert csv files to gpx

Surly this has been covered but I'm new to the forum. Heck I'm new to GPS, Basecamp and I'm not great on computers. I've watched all Norwood's tutorials which are great by the way but I am having trouble converting csv files to gpx. I've downloaded GPS Babel in which one of two things happen. One, it says successful but then I can't find the new gpx file anywhere on my computer.
