Setup Google Contacts on My New iPad

I sent new iPads to my mom and sisters. They loved them. Such an easy setup, right out of the box! However, there was one problem. They couldn’t figure out how to get their Google Contacts to show up! Here’s instructions for them, and you, on how to setup your Gmail to sync Google Contacts, Calendars and Email on your iPad or iPhone using Exchange.

How Do I Get My Google Contacts on My New iPad?

Apple iPad and Google Contacts

If you setup your Gmail account when you pulled your iPad out of the box, then it set up that account in a manner that doesn’t allow you to sync your Google Contacts, Calendar, Notes and Mail. No worries! It’s an easy fix!

We just have to delete your existing Google Account and setup a new one. All your data remains safe at Google, and will sync again when we’re done!

Remove Existing Google Account

  1. Launch Settings
  2. Tap Mail, Contacts, Calendar
  3. Select your Google Gmail account
  4. Tap Delete Account—don’t worry, your data is safe with Google—you’re just disconnecting from the account!

Setup Google Exchange Account

  1. In Settings, under Mail, Contacts, Calendar
  2. Tap Add Account
  3. Tap Microsoft Exchange
  4. Enter your Gmail email address (or Google Apps email)
  5. Leave domain blank
  6. Enter your email address as user name and enter your Gmail password.
  7. Tap Next.
  8. Once Server field appears enter m.google.com.
  9. Tap Next and turn on the Google features you want to sync:
  • Mail
  • Contacts
  • Calendars

Customize Mac Screenshot Folder

  1. Create or locate the folder you’d like to save screenshots to. I use a folder in my Home Directory called Screenshots.
  2. Open Terminal. It’s in Utilties, and can be opened via Spotlight.
    ⌘ Command + Spacebar Terminal
  3. Copy and paste the line below into Terminal, but—wait!—don’t hit enter yet! Be sure to include the space that is at the end of the line.
    defaults write com.apple.screencapture location
  4. Now, drag and drop the folder you wish you save screenshots to onto the Terminal window. This will insert the folder location into the command line.
  5. Click Enter to submit the command.
  6. Finally, copy and paste the line below into Terminal. It resets Terminal making your change effective immediately.
    killall SystemUIServer
  7. Click Enter to submit the command. Close Terminal—you’re ready to go!

Change Screenshot Default File Name Prefix

By default, Mac screenshots are saved using the prefix “Screen Shot”. You can change the default screenshot file name prefix:

  1. Open Terminal. It’s in Utilties, and can be opened via Spotlight.
    ⌘ Command + Spacebar Terminal
  2. Copy and paste the line below into Terminal and hit Enter. Replace ScreenShot with whatever prefix you prefer.
    defaults write com.apple.screencapture name ScreenShot
  3. Copy and paste the line below into Terminal. It resets Terminal making your change effective immediately.
    killall SystemUIServer
  4. Click Enter to submit the command. Close Terminal—you’re ready to go!

Change Default Screenshot File Type

By default, Mac screenshots are saved as .png files. You can change the default screenshot filetype:

  1. Open Terminal. It’s in Utilties, and can be opened via Spotlight.
    ⌘ Command + Spacebar Terminal
  2. Copy and paste the line below into Terminal and hit Enter. Replace png with whatever filetype you prefer.
    defaults write com.apple.screencapture type png
  3. Copy and paste the line below into Terminal. It resets Terminal making your change effective immediately.
    killall SystemUIServer
  4. Click Enter to submit the command. Close Terminal—you’re ready to go!

Help! Where are my screenshots? Where is my screenshot folder? My screenshot folder is missing!

Note: If you ever delete your screenshots folder you must reset the folder location using the above instructions.

FRAUD: Curtiss Parker, Jeff Stone and the Hong Kong Alliance Fund

SCAM ALERT: Exposing Fraud on Jeff Stone, Janette Diller Stone and
Curtiss Parker of the Hong Kong Alliance Fund Limited and the Wakabayashi Fund, LLC.

“The Devil slept in my bed”, she said. I found Curtiss Parker drunk and passed out in my bed and I didn’t feel safe in my home anymore.

One day last summer I came home to find my roommate stoned on the couch, and to find “the devil slept in my bed“. My roommate seemed to think nothing of the fact that a man entered our home, proceeded to my bedroom and decided to take a nap in my bed—despite the fact that his very own bed was literally one floor above, as he lived upstairs and his bedroom was directly above my own. I woke him screaming and chased him out of the house, and then I kicked out my roommate.

The roommate moved out, but I continued to have to deal with the drunk upstairs, Curtiss Parker. Who, in addition to sleeping in my bed, also molested me. Yuck.
