In today's TOURBUS, I'm touting the benefits of External Hard Drives for backing up your files, and I've got a list of websites that offer Free Teleconferencing. And if you read this week's Geekly Update, I guarantee it'll make you smarter and better looking. In addition, you'll get the scoop on Fax Broadcasting and how to use Windows 7 Libraries to win friends and influence people. Also don't miss my article on Fake Antivirus Software, and learn how to Consolidate Your Email accounts. Read on!

External Hard Drives for Backup
Making frequent backups of your critical data is important, everyone agrees. But often it doesn't get done regularly because it's a hassle. The easier you make backing up data, the more reliably you will do it. When it comes to backups, the easiest way is often an external hard drive.

Even better, many external drives come with free software that makes automatic backups as simple as a few clicks...

Free Teleconferencing
Voice teleconferencing remains a staple of business despite the proliferation of alternatives such as email, instant messaging, and webinars. The problem is that teleconferencing can get expensive. Fortunately, many free teleconference services are available.

You'll be surprised at the features that some of them offer, including unlimited call time, muting and free call recording. Here's my list...

Geekly Update November 17
Is Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" the new iPhone theme song? Does Magellan's new RoadMate GPS with 7-inch display automatically order Kung Po Chicken when you pass a Chinese restaurant? And is diagnosis-by-cellphone really part of the healthcare reform bill?

Get answers to these burning questions and more, in the most recent installment of the Geekly Update...

Fax Broadcasting
You need to send a weekly fax update to a large group of people. But it's tedious to stand at the fax machine and enter each number. Fax broadcasting, the ability to send a fax message to multiple recipients, is the answer.

Here's how to do fax broadcasting with Windows or Mac software, your own in-house fax server, or an online fax service provider.

Windows 7 Libraries
When you open Explorer in Windows 7 you will see a tree of "Libraries" in the left sidebar. Libraries are a new feature of Windows 7 and may cause confusion among users of earlier versions. But Libraries are quite handy, easy to understand, and fun to work with.

Here's the scoop on how to use Libraries Windows 7...

Fake Antivirus Software
Con men have always known that the easiest way to deceive a mark is to offer what he wants most. So it's no surprise that cyber crooks are offering false protection against dangerous viruses. Yes, that free antivirus program you were so glad to discover and installed so eagerly may be a virus in disguise!

Here's my advice on how to protect yourself from fake anti-virus programs...

Consolidate Email Accounts
A reader asks: "I have three email accounts, and it's a nuisance to check each one. I also have trouble keeping my address books in sync, and when I'm looking for a certain message, I have to check in three places. Is there an easy way to consolidate all my email accounts in one place?"
