With technology (and sound) playing a big part of movies now, and stadium seating in a lot of movie houses, you can pretty much get a good view from just about anywhere. So how do you pick where to sit?
This is what people "in the know" say....You make your decision based on sound. The best seat? In the middle of a row about 2/3rds of the way back. Because audio engineers sit there when they balance sound in a theatre. In the middle, the sound is "neutral". If you want more dynamic sound, move a few seats to the left or right. Personally I look for a seat on the aisle so I can easily go to the men's room quickly without having to trample over anybody on the way there.
They also should determine what to do with the group of idiots that ruin the movie-going experience for everybody else. In that case, the best seats are usually on the couch in my house. More on that tomorrow.

This, and every other, Monday morning I was joined by Newsradio 570 WSYR Money Coach Rick Regan to discuss Wall Street's positive reaction to the lower than expected unemployment numbers. We also talked about a federal court ruling that could do away with the state's Constitutional protections for pensions.
Yesterday we reported hackers were able to pry into over 2 million passwords people use on many major social media sites, i.e. Facebook, Twitter and others.
Despite the increase in security breaches, people still aren't picking difficult to guess passwords. Example? The most popular passwords are "123456" and "123456789" and "password".
Experts in the know suggest you use a "passphrase". They're tougher for hackers to guess and they're pretty easy to come up with. A passphrase is a short sentence that's easy to remember, and just use the first letter (or number) of the word. Example? "My best friend Cathy baked me a cake for my 40th birthday". You should, they say, use the upper and lower case letters and all the numbers. Translated:
Figure that one out hackers! Bring it on!
