Import photos and videos from an iPhone to PC (works great!)

Import photos and videos from an iPhone to PC

Transfer photos from an iPhone to your PC.

First, connect your iPhone to a PC with a USB cable that can transfer files.

  1. Turn your phone on and unlock it. Your PC can’t find the device if the device is locked.

  2. On your PC, select the Start  button and then select Photos to open the Photos app.

  3. Select Import From a USB device, then follow the instructions. You can pick the items you want to import and select where to save them. Allow a few moments for detection and transfer.

Make sure the photos you want to import are actually on the device rather than in the cloud. Then, follow the steps for your type of device.

How to fix XBOX No Longer Recording - Error 2184328729

To fix XBOX No Longer Recording - Error 2184328729 on your PC:

This error means you do not have enough room to record any more videos. Delete old videos or move them to a different drive. If you delete videos, BE SURE TO EMPTY THE RECYLCE BIN TOO!

This worked for me, after I emptied the recycle bin... :)

Stop Excel from Flashing "CALCULATING" Continuously

If your Excel spreadsheet constantly flashes "CALCULATING" in the bottom status bar, it's possible calls are being made out to a third party. This happened to me when I realized calls to get stock quotes were pinging every 10 seconds or so. To remedy that I created a helper cell. When the value in that cell is "1", calls are made. If not "1" no calls are made.

Thus for example, my TDA Ameritrade call script to get a stock quote looks like this:

        =IF($A$1=1,RTD("tos.rtd",,"LAST",A2),"Not live")

When cell A1 = 1, quotes are updating
When cell A1 does not = 1, "Not live" is displayed

One final note: If you have multiple spreadsheets open, the spreadsheet that's flashing "CALCULATING" is not necessarily the one with the live script, so close them all and work on them one at the time.

Pair AirPods with PC - This works!

I always miss one step when trying to pair my AirPods with my PC, so I'm capturing these instructions here. If you don't see your AirPods listed when you are trying to pair them via Bluetooth with your PC, there's likely one step below you are missing. Try again! :)

Pair AirPods with PC

  1. On your PC, go to the settings for Bluetooth and make sure that Bluetooth is on (Windows Key + S, type in "Bluetooth and other devices settings")
  2. Click the "+" button at the top to "Add Bluetooth or other device", then Click "Bluetooth Mice, keyboards, pens or audio and other kinds of Bluetooth devices"
  3. With your AirPods in the charging case, open the lid.
  4. Press and hold the setup button on the back of the case until you see the status light flash white.
  5. When your AirPods appear in the list of Bluetooth devices, select them.

AirPods should now be paired.

Disable Dangerous Lenovo Touchscreen

Disable Lenovo touchscreen

You must uninstall Lenovo touchscreen because it will start placing trades for you in your trading programs. No joke. Dangerous. The problem is that you have to keep uninstalling it because every time Windows updates it adds it back. Arghhh.

  1. Open Device Manager by pressing the Windows key + X.
  2. Under Human Interface Devices, look for HID-compliant touch screen
  3. Right click on this option and choose Uninstall.
Old notes:
Follow these steps
a. Winkey + Q.
b. Type Control Panel.
c. Go to Hardware and Sound.
d. Pen and touch (this will be gone if you uninstalled touch screen above, Remove it)

How Karen the Supertrader Blew Up Her Accounts

There's nothing wrong with trading Naked Puts, but Karen the Supertrader did what almost every novice naked option trader does: If your position size is too high, you too will blow up your account.

Selling Naked Puts like Karen the Supertrader:

Suppose you sell a naked put for $1.00. Then the stock goes down and now that put trades for $2.00. So instead of showing a loss of $1.00, you roll that option out in time for let's assume a net of $0.50. So where you had a loss of $1.00 ($2.00 less $1.00), you're now showing a gain of $0.50 (-$2.00 to buy back the NP and +$2.50 to sell the new NP). So while you're actually losing money on the underlying position, you're showing a gain by rolling that position out in time. With Karen taking commissions on the "gain" of $0.50, she's taking credit for a gain that may never be realized, or worse.

If you can keep rolling this position long enough, you may be able to get out of the position without a loss even if the stock never goes back up. But if you are highly leveraged and your position size is too high, you can quickly blow up your account when the stock swoons and you too can't meet your margin calls.

This is what happened to Karen the Supertrader. Margin calls came in on the leveraged positions, and she could not meet those calls. She could not hold on to those positions long enough to hopefully see a reversal in the underlying.

Naked options by themselves are not a bad thing. The problem is leverage and position sizing. I don't use leverage when trading Naked Puts.
