Tech Talk / Copying from new itunes to old ipod
« on: February 23, 2014, 08:14:03 PM »
If someone knows where this may have been discussed, please tell me, but I haven't found it. I have two ipods. One has a number of playlists, etc. from my old iTunes on my old computer. My old computer went to computer heaven. I still have all my songs because it's on an external drive. So I put together a new desktop with new iTunes pointing to my songs. I created a few new playlists I want to ADD to my existing ipod. Can't get to first base. With my new ipod connected it gives me the choice to pick which playlists to sync to new ipod, which it's doing now fine. So what I need to do is get some new stuff added to my old ipod. I don't want to wipe out what's on it. I can't set up a sync of just new playlists that I choose. Doesn't let me like the new one does. Any help?

Up In The Air / Delta Platinum challenge questions
« on: January 19, 2014, 12:38:29 PM »
Didn't seem to find this anywhere. If it's out there please let me know. I just got my status match on Delta to Platinum - it's for 90 days and it's just a challenge, which no way will I make. I took it because I thought I might go to Miami with Delta and use it, but I got tickets on JetBlue. Anyway, now that I have this status, is there a way to use it for anything the next 90 days without taking a flight? Like lounge access or something? Going to Miami on Jetblue in March. Just wondering. Also, anyone know if I can get any kind of status on JetBlue? Is there anything? Thanks.

On The Road / Sheraton Vacations
« on: January 06, 2014, 06:03:26 PM »
Anyone have any experience with this? I got an invite to go to the Sheraton Vistana Villages in Orlando 5days/4nights for $299. It doesn't say I have to buy anything or even listen to a sales pitch. Anyone ever get one of these? I'm hesitant to trust it.

For AAA members. I called them and they said you can get a maximum of 10 cards a day ($5,000). If you're a member and need to spend, I think this is great! Gut Shabbos

Up In The Air / Losing ELAL points
« on: November 17, 2013, 08:49:21 PM »
Searched for this topic, couldn't find anything. This is the second time this is going to happen to me. I got an email from elal that I'll be losing 400 points. There's nothing I can do with my points right now (just got two free tickets on AA miles with ELAL). Any options, or is it just a loss? The idea of booking and then cancelling a ticket for the Continental points worked great. Thanks. But these guys are terrible.

On The Road / Use my Hilton gold status
« on: November 03, 2013, 05:37:39 PM »
I have a reservation that my son in law made for us at a Hilton for a night on his mileage. Our name was added. I want to know if I can get gold privileges because I'm a gold member even though he isn't. Not that I know yet what those gold privileges are. Anyone know if I can do that? Thanks

Tech Talk / Iphone backup
« on: October 20, 2013, 01:28:26 PM »
Anyone have experience with a good Iphone (I have the 4s) backup that backs up everything without using ITunes? I always had problems with the ITunes backup, wasn't very reliable at all. I now use the Icloud, but it doesn't back up things that are old, like old notes, that were there before you started using Icloud. I saw online a product called phonecopy. Any one here of it or use it?

Tech Talk / Phone in Poland
« on: October 19, 2013, 09:05:40 PM »
I'm planning a trip to Poland in February. I have a Iphone 4s with ATT. I know I can call them but I thought I'd get better info here. Any way to use it in Poland or should I just rent a phone (going from a Wednesday to a Monday). If there's already a post about this please let me know.

Does anyone know of a good sprinkler company. I want to install sprinklers in my front lawn (Flatbush). Got an estimate from Fazio. Any other recommendations? Thanks.
