One of the most frequent requests I get from customers is how to change their home page. Lets first discuss what is a home page.

If you are foggy about the idea of what a home page is, don't feel bad. It's actually a question I get often. 

A home page is simply the first page that loads when you open your web browser (Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari etc.) That's it. It's nothing magical or fancy - it's just the first page that automatically loads. Some browsers have no home...

I'm always down for giving (and receiving) tips or advise on doing things in a better way. One common area I see that could use some addressing is Android Smart phones. Many of the functions that I use daily, and would struggle without, are rarely used by many people! I suspect this is mostly because they don't know such ability exists. Let us change that!

Technology is great if you can put it to particle use. One of the best uses for me personally of technology is my home setup that allows me to stream videos, pictures or music stored on my computer to the TV in the living room, bedroom or else-ware. I can stream content I've downloaded from the internet, or personal videos of trips we've taken.
