Not Just Another Word for Goodnight

I always get excited when someone introduces me to something that I haven’t seen before that actually solves a problem.

In this weeks tech Tip I am sharing a crazy cool tool that was introduced to me by a friend of mine Terry Rossi. If you’ve been watching these Tech Tips for a while you’ll be able to tell almost immediately why I like this weeks Tech Tip so much.

Finally! A Volume Button

My relationship with social media has always been sort of a love hate relationship. I love what facebook and twitter allow me to do in connecting with friends, family, acquaintances, but I have a real frustration.

As useful as these tools are I have really grown to hate all of the noise that social media gives me. The one thing that has really been missing in my opinion is a volume button.

Sometimes I just want to turn down the volume on those people who are constantly talking about their cats maybe even mute them, but always have the option to turn their volume back up just in case.

In this weeks Tech Tip I’m sharing with you a new social service that not only let’s me control the volume of my social stream but control just how loud I’m talking and who I’m talking to.

If you’re looking for an invite to google plus let me know I’ve got em and I’m willing to share 🙂

The Web News Blues

No matter what gadget I turn on my first mouse click or tap of the screen in the case of my iPhone and iPad is to the internet. I am an admitted information junkie, several times a day I’m checking out news sites like engadget, gizmodo, espn, fox news, the associated press, and half a dozen others. But the one thing I don’t really pick up anymore is a newspaper. The idea of waiting for my paper to arrive and only getting my news once a day almost seems laughable.

But with the convenience of the internet come one major frustration, advertisements and other junk clutter up the screen making reading an article online less than ideal. In this weeks Tech Tip I’m going to share with you how I combat that annoyance and make the “paperless” news experience that much sweeter.

Just a Bit of Spit

When I was in Highschool and college biology and Chemistry were by far two of my least favorite subjects. I always felt like “what’s the point” I’m not planning on becoming a doctor, I don’t forsee myself disecting anything for a living and having a better understanding of capillaries, enzymes, and genomes really wouldn’t impress anyone on a resume.

But when one of my viewers Don Pollitt whom I have since become friends with showed me the subject of this weeks Tech Tip I began to wish I’d paid better attention in my science classes.
