      Good content, but I'd rather not see someone's face come on and off on a camera during the video. People who walk by my cubicle might get the wrong idea.

      I'm unable to watch this (and others in the series). I've tried both the streaming version and two downloaded versions (mid-WMV and mid-MP4). I've also tried them on my Playbook, to rule out bad codecs on my desktop. The ones I've tried fail a minute or two in.

      This video is not that great. Common , regular people do not understand all the jibberish she is talking about. Some of us want to know how to just find our email, games , yahoo messenger, .. She is talking in hard to understand computer tech jibberish. Make a new video , using talk that we understand. This is not good.
