So a lot of people get frustrated in their homes that they buy a router -- -- can't figure out why they can't -- Wi-Fi in their basement or in their living room or something like that one of the biggest factors that has it that causes this trouble is -- quirk in your house masonry work so if there's a portion of your house that actually is blocked by bricks.
Chances are you're not gonna get a strong Wi-Fi signal through that we had to do this in our house we had the router set up in the top room and then.

-- next question what browser does Clayton recommend and use for this computers and that's from Tom Coleman on Twitter so a lot of we've gotten past -- is sort of the browser wars -- -- -- -- was how many use Firefox -- -- use this but really I use Google's Chrome browser let's go to -- dot google.com downloaded it's free.
It's probably the fastest browser out there so I use it mostly an all my computers.
It's very very simple so it pretty much gets the browser out of the way in just lets you focus on the content.
All of your bookmarks will sync across all of your computers so if you're at work -- blog in two chrome the same bookmarks that -- saved at home will be their work.
And -- -- use Apple's safari browser those -- the two.
-- Firefox and Internet Explorer I find to be really sluggish so try chrome you'll thank me I'm telling you interesting all right so question number three I just got a new Mac.

It also sinks with your bank's so any time and all the categories of use Bank of America whatever.
All of that stuff -- sync with your bank so you can go when you -- you've spent five dollars on a newspaper.
Money at a fast food restaurant gas all of that stuff -- categorized for you.
There's also new program called neat from the folks from neat receipts.
