logo-efileI saw this morning, on this blogs ‘search strings’, that somebody wanted to know how to calculate New Hampshire ‘Interest and Dividends Tax‘ (I&D).

IF you, like I, are one of the ‘chosen’ that have to pay this tax it is rather easy to calculate. 5% of ALL interest and dividends declared on your IRS 1040 after a $4,800 exemptions for marrieds or $2,400 for singles. There are other exceptions too if you are disabled, blind etc.

But the quickest and easiest way to do is to use the FREE New Hampshire e-file option available from the N.H. State, i.e., nh.gov, Website. Go to RESIDENTS >> >> TAXES >> >> INTEREST & DIVIDENDS TAX. Click on ‘tax’ and look for the e-file logo (as shown here).

Just bang in your social, give them your e-mail, create a 4-digit PIN and Bob is your uncle. You are ready to rock and rumble. Very easy to use. Does the calculations for you and it is e-file. One-stop shopping. I have successfully used NH e-file for years. On Tuesday I breezed through with my 2015 filing in less than 3 minutes. Start to finish. Done. Getting a refund!

So go for it. Don’t even THINK of anything else. SMILE.

Apple Already HAS A Trapdoor Built Into iPhones — IF NOT FBI Would NOT Have Made Request!

by Anura Guruge


iphonedfuYou need to be somewhat technical to understand and appreciate this.

The basic issue when it comes to this ‘Encryption Battle‘ is that the FBI wants Apple to develop some new code (a compromised version of the iPhone OS) that will enable the FBI to try entering new PINs, in rapid succession, programmatically, without the Apple OS deleting the encrypted data in the phone, or introducing delays between each attempt at entering the PINs.

So you have to ask the VITAL question (if you understand these matters).

IF the iPhone is locked — which is the case here — how can Apple or the FBI download this new code that they want Apple to develop.

IF an iPhone is locked then you should NOT be able to mess with the software already on it.

And this is where Apple has ALREADY compromised iPhones. They built into iPhones the so called “Device Firmware Upgrade” bypass. By attaching an USB connection to the iPhone you can enter DFU Mode.

To be fair to Apple this is a NICE recovery mechanism to provide.

BUT, if it wasn’t there NONE of this would have come up.

A locked iPhone would have stayed LOCKED until you found the PIN.

So Apple created this slippery path.

As a Computer Technologist of 47-years I just wanted you to know about this.

I am torn. I do clearly see both sides. So I think they should just throw the damn phone into the Pacific and that Apple should eradicate DFU mode.

I, as somebody who wears Canadian Red Poppies, because I don’t have any from the UK (with the two lovely green leaves), I am OK with these rules — THOUGH I do wear a plastic, earring retainer, from Deanna’s vast collection, behind the pin to hold it in place. I lost two a couple of years ago and was devastated. No worries about I wearing a Poppy with a Canadian flag pin in the middle!

I am amused by the do NOT reuse requirement. Yes, I subscribe BUT I have NO choice but to preserve and reuse mine since Red Poppies are hard to come by in the U.S. of A.

I want to get one of these pins so I can wear it in early November each year.

Just e-mailed them to see IF they handle shipments to the U.S. Might be too late for this year.

But, I now have another item I can tell Deanna to get me for Christmas. Can’t make up my mind about the underlined Buckley or the Reflective Ruby to the left of it. Might have to do what my adoptive mother did when she was forced to make a choice like this. I will have to get both!
