CNET to the Rescue (MP3)

by CNETTV.com · · · · 1 subscribers

You deserve to get the most out of the technology you use. The CNET to the Rescue podcast gives you the tips and tricks to master the products you own and get the best deals on new technology. Every Wednesday, Rafe and Josh take on new topics and answer your e-mailed and live phone questions. (Formerly The Real Deal)

This week, the sharp editor of CNET How To, Sharon Vaknin, joins us again as we answer questions about Quicken, Google+, mousing on a Mac, and Facebook security. This is the last CNET to the Rescue show for a while. The show is going into the shop and we're going to tune it up a bit, and will re-launch it shortly. I am leaving this show to launch another one here at CNET, hopefully also shortly. If you have a tech question for CNET, e-mail how-to@cnet.com. Thanks everyone for listening, watching, complaining, whatever...It's been a lot of fun. --Rafe #### ...
