95% of all e-mail traffic is Spam.

Can you believe it? If you have ever ordered anything online and are now receiving unsolicited e-mails, we bet you can.

Spam is the electronic version of "junk mail." The term spam refers to unsolicited, often unwanted, e-mail messages. Quick tips to reduce spam:

1) Don't give your e-mail address out arbitrarily - E-mail addresses have become so common that a space for them is often included on forms that ask for your address - even comment cards at restaurants. It seems harmless, so many people write them in the space provided without realizing what could happen to that information. For example, companies often enter the addresses into a database so that they can keep track of their customers and the customers' preferences. Sometimes these lists are sold to or shared with other companies, and suddenly you are receiving e-mail that you didn't request.

2) Be aware of options selected by default. When you sign up for some online accounts or services, there may be a section that provides you with the option to receive e-mail about other products and services. Sometimes the options are selected by default, so if you do not "deselect" them, you could begin to receive e-mail from those lists as well.

3) Don't click on links in spam messages. If you click a link within an e-mail message or reply to a certain address, you are just confirming that your e-mail address is valid. Unwanted messages that offer an "unsubscribe" option are particularly tempting, but this is often just a method for collecting valid addresses that are then sent more spam.

Traveling with your digital camera? A Photo Viewer is a great tool to help keep your pictures safe and give you some great viewing options.

If you're planning a trip, you're probably planning to take your digital camera to capture some great images of family, friends, scenery and places. Along with the camera, consider including a "photo viewer".

Once you take a digital photograph, it is stored on the card in the camera. These cards are relatively stable, but they are subject to failure or loss. They can also be affected by airport scanning. Here's where a photo viewer can help.

Transfer the images on a camera card to the photo viewer without the use of a computer. This makes the photo viewer a valuable tool and a small, light and easy traveling companion. You can copy your images to the viewer as you take them, making a second copy of all your pictures, providing an effective back up. Since viewers can hold lots of information, you will be able to back up and store lots of pictures. Once the pictures are saved on the viewer, you can see them right from the viewer itself, individually or as a slide show: a great way to show your pictures to others.

There are many viewers available out there today. One of the best is made by Epson. Epson has created a great product with several models available that have superior color range in the large LCD screen. It's easy-to-use, has great storage capacity, has a long battery life and much more. You will find that a photo viewer will enhance your digital photography capabilities, making photography easier, more fun, and providing on-the-spot backup you always need.
