    Love the latest APPLE privacy update and why I went to MAC and iPhone last year, for this very reason.

    Been computing for 25 years now. Always was a windows and android person. Always thought Apple products were way overpriced and that I could do better. Last fall I dumped everything Android, Google and Microsoft and moved into the Apple world with a desktop Mac mini (love it) and iPhone XR, all...

    Running off to work, will check back later. Currently LOVE my TP-Link Archer C7 V2. YEARS of trouble free service, at least 20 wifi devices on it.

    Its well known in here that I stick as close as I can to use the recommended oil in my 2014 Road King as required by Harley Davidson. The thinking is, simply, no different then any other car, truck, boat or piston aircraft. I use the recommended fluids, but for some reason, its the Wild West...

    HiFlo - HF171B Cut Open, 2014 Road King,

    This is one of two HiFlo filters that I bought. Normally I use the standard Harley-Davidson oil filters but for the heck of it this year I picked up two of these just for fun.
