Cell phones outnumber people in the US

I've seen people with one in each ear and, despite law and common sense, they've become as much a hazard as a helper. There was an old joke about the population explosion and a woman having a baby ever so many seconds...the punch line being that "someone needs to stop that woman!" Happy

If the population in the UK was counted in cell phones and not people, we would be 180 million instead of 60 million! Happy

I've only got one, so someone has got 5, their own 3 and my two.

I get a new cell phone every now and then. I didn't fall for the "the plans" as it were from some typical cell co. but rather now buy time. If a battery dies or can't remain strong for long, I get another phone. Or, I will trade-up to get a feature that needed for the time-being. Doing this has caused me to have several phones laying around. HOWEVER, I donate these sooner later to county recycling pgms. to give to shelter women, etc. or simply to generate funds as they're returned to some other cause. I like to think, I got my money's worth and still generate some goodwill later.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
