Tech Talk

Public·3 members

I was one of those kids who loved taking things apart to see how they worked. Fortunately, as the years passed, I got better at putting them back together.

My love of technology has never really faded, although my work evolved from designing technology to helping organizations use it effectively.

At this point in my life, I hope to help members of this group make informed choices and maybe eliminate some of the frustration that all these changes have brought to our lives.

For example, recently, I've been encouraging many users to move to Chromebooks rather than Macs or PCs. While this would clearly be a bad idea if you depend on software that only works on another type of computer, most of us can now do everything "in the cloud." Google recognized this a few years ago, and their Chromebooks are easier to use and manage, leaving more time to focus on our work or games.

Likewise, I recently switched from a Fitbit to a much cheaper no-name brand because the technology has advanced to where the no-name gives me everything I want at a much lower price.

Sometimes, however, brands still matter. Take earbuds as an example. If you want to listen to podcasts, almost any brand will do. If, on the other hand, you have an iPhone and want to carry on a phone conversation and have your voice clearly understood, you can't beat Apple's AirPods.

So, what tips or questions do you have?
