You've got WAY too much paper.

How do I know?

BECAUSE WE ALL DO!

If you took all the paper you've got sitting around in file cabinets, folders, your desks... I bet you could build a whole house out of it!

IT'S MADDENING!

From taxes to forms to memos and more, you're CONSTANTLY having to fill out forms giving the same information over and over and over!

But here's the kicker: you have to make CHANGES to this stuff!

Have you ever had to take an ENTIRE document... and rewrite it just because of a single typo?

That's enough to make ANYONE go insane!

If you can scan a piece of paper...

...you can turn ANYTHING into a digital document!

(Edit, Change, Update, Modify, or Fix Any Document... WITHOUT Having To Retype A Single Word!)

And I mean ANY Document!

Once it scans these in, it turns them into a 100% editable document - And Allows you to save it as ANY FILE TYPE! Making it easy to share or store ANYTHING!

Plus It Lets you Save OnTo The CLOUD!

Need to send that medical bill to your account for a tax break? EASY! With Readiris you can scan the bill, save it onto your Google Drive or into your DropBox account and at anytime you can have INSTANT access to it!

It's ALL In The Optical Character Recognition Software!

HERE'S HOW SIMPLE IT IS!

Scan in the Paper... And BAM - Instanly converted into an editable document!

Then it outputs in whatever format you need to modify it - Seriously - It Does That!

From there, you're free to do whatever you want to it!

Leave it, edit it, update it, even just save it on your PC!

WOW!

Now, this is the MOST ACCURATE program like this on the market that I've ever seen too! Just double check your document for any changes that may need to be made, which will only take seconds to edit or correct.

Just look at how cool this is! It can even convert images into spreadsheet documents!

In just minutes you can turn your ENTIRE FILE CABINET into a folder of digital files on your computer!

Look at it this way: boxes of papers versus a flash drive... which one is easier to keep around?

Check out how Readiris Pro 14 will even turn a written note into an MS Word Document:

READY FOR THE BEST PART?

Software like this usually comes with a hefty price tag. We're talking over $100 easy!

See for yourself!

Not here at Worldstart! For just $26.97 you can archive all your files and documents and notes in a fraction of the time it would take to even photocopy them!

LOW QUANTITY ALERT! Due to the high demand of this verson of Readiris, I was only able to get a limited supply!

Browse In Private On Firefox

Private browsing means that you can browse without the pages you visit being recorded. It also doesn’t save temporary internet files, cookies and form data. However, private browsing will still not be hidden from your employer, government or service provider. Any files that you download or bookmarks that you create will also be stored on your computer. With that in mind, let’s see how to browse in private with Firefox.

1. Open Firefox from your Desktop or Start Menu. Double click on it.

firefoxicon

2. The Firefox browser will open. Click on the button which has three lines stacked on one another. This button is in the right hand corner.

firefoxcorner

3. A small menubar will open giving you a variety of options. Click on the button which says “New Private Page”.

newprivatepage

4. A new window will open which is a private browser, allowing you to browse without your browsing being recorded.

privatebrowsing

5. Proceed to browse as you normally would. When you are finished browsing, make sure to close all the windows.

On The Move

What's New In iOS 8.3

Apple has released an update for iPhones and iPads to the iOS operating system.  The update is intended to fix some bugs and improve performance for app launching and responsiveness.

Users should also see improved performance for Wi-Fi and in the way 3rd-party keyboards work with iOS devices.  Among the fixes to WiFi and Bluetooth are a bug where users were continually asked for login credentials and bugs that caused users to disconnect from Wi-Fi.

The update also takes care of an orientation problem where the screen was not flipping between portrait and landscape modes properly when devices were rotated.

This update should also tackle issues with messages including once where group messages sometimes split and where users were unable to forward or delete some messages.  It also adds the ability to report junk messages in the messages app and to filter out messages not sent by people you know.

Fixes were also added to Family sharing. One fix tackles a problem where some apps didn’t properly update or launch on family members’ devices.  This update should also work out some kinks in the CarPlay system including problems with maps and an issue with the keyboard randomly popping up.

A few issues affecting accessibility should also be ironed out including issues with the...

Emmy from Australia writes:
 
How can I take my signature of my Yahoo mail? At the end of each email I send out my phone numbers go with every email and my name. How can I change that in the Yahoo mail system. As you can see when you get this email that my contact numbers appear.  I want to take them away but don’t know how to do that in the Yahoo mail system.
 
Emmy, first I’m going to explain how an e-mail signature works in Yahoo! Mail for those who aren’t familiar with it and then I’ll show you how to delete yours. An email signature is really just some text inserted at the end of each e-mail. It could include your name or phone numbers or a website or maybe a quote you’d like to share.
 
Here’s how to add it in Yahoo! Mail. Go to the inbox and click the Settings icon. Then choose Settings from the drop-down menu.
 
Choose Writing email from the menu at the left.
 

You’ll see the option to add...

National Museum Of Natural History Virtual Tour

 Welcome to the National Museum of History’s virtual tour! Without any fanfare, you load immediate into your exploration!

Starting on the first floor, right in front of a glorious elephant exhibit you’ll discover that you can follow the large blue arrows or use the navigation menu at the bottom of the screen. 

Want to head upstairs or to the ground floor? You can do so with the buttons at the top right of the screen. 

What you’ll discover are amazing panoramic views of the museum. As you travel through if you see a camera (seemingly out of place) click it and you’ll be shown detail photos of the exhibit. And don’t forget to use your mouse to change your point of view, you can turn the screen 360 degrees. 

This is an awesome way to explore the museum from the comfort of your home. I love that they’ve provided such a great way for people to see it who can’t get there in person.  

Go check it out for yourself today!

One More Big Deal

Keep all your fruits, vegetables and more FOR LONGER with these super cool bags!

Produce is expensive and often goes bad before we've even had a chance to really use it! I mean seriously, how often do you really use the WHOLE head of lettuce or use the WHOLE stalk of celery? I know in my house we tend to eat about 75% of it before its rotten goo has overtaken the drawer.

That's why I was super GLAD when I found these guys!

I know you're wondering "well how the heck does this thing work?" Well, I am gonna tell ya!

These bags absorb and remove the harmful ethlene gases that are given off by the food. These gases are what speed up the aging and decaying process (you know, they turn your food into goo gas).

Simply seal up your produce, meat, fish WHATEVER in these bags and let them do all the work!

But we know from experience that you need a variety of sizes... GOOD NEWS!

But wait THERE IS MORE - These bags are reusable! YUP, you read that right!

So, now you can reuse these guys up to 20 times! That's like buying 100 BAGS - for the price of ONE!

I am telling you the savings JUST KEEP getting BETTER!

So, you get 5 reusable bags for just $4.97 !!! THATS INSANE! Heck, at that price you could buy 5 sets and save well over $100 a MONTH for A YEAR! 

But here's the bad news! I was only able to get a limited supply of these guys so you GOTTA act fast!

King Of The Log

I found this red squirrel near the Lava Creek Picnic Area in Yellowstone National Park.

I found him while attempting..(More)

Wagner Falls

This is probably my favorite Michigan waterfall. Sure, there are bigger and taller falls, but none quite as charming if you ask me. The hike to this falls is grueling. You have to battle steep rock climbs, treacherous hills, biting insects, and a score of wild animals just to get to the thing. On our way to this one, I was horribly maimed by a ferocious black bear, butt...(More)
