For Season 2 we will be using an app call Anchor.FM for sharing teasers, clips, and short tips to keep you informed, help build our following and engage with more users. You can find and follow us on Anchor at http://anchor.fm/techliving and the best part is, you can Call-in and ask us questions we can answer on the show or right there in the app.
The Technically Living Podcast is working its way back into your podcatcher. Bare with us as we start spinning backup up. We cannot thank you enough for keeping subscribed or finding us since the beginning of the year.
In this episode, I briefly discuss the additional features most people with an Amazon Prime membership might not even know are available to them. The first two are feature enhancements and the rest are some pretty neat additons. Take a listen.
Adam Huber of Adam Huber's Detailing talks with us about the software tools and resources that he uses to stay organized in his mobile detailing service as well as keep in touch with and network with his customers.
Quick Announcement: the day after this episode is released, we will be interview on the Sioux Empire Podcast hosted here in Sioux Falls as well. Once that episode is published I will share how to get to it.
We are starting off 2017 the way the podcast was originally intended. We will hopefully be having interviews of people just like you using technology in their life, family, and business. In future episodes we will discuss with guests the tools they use currently or want to use in the future as well as possibly hash out an issue or frustration they are experiencing at the moment.
This time of year your email inbox gets filled with invoices, receipts, and shipping notifications more than any other time. Because of that, you are much more likely to receive SPAM and other bogus emails that are 'phishing' you to click on links and provide information to inappropriate actors.
Last week we had the amazing opportunity to travel to Las Vegas for the Amazon Web Services (AWS) re:Invent Conference where across 3 casinos there was training, workshops, certifications and so much more. All the sessions and training were specific to one of the many offerings Amazon has in their AWS package. It was hard to really get the most out of the conference cause there was so much information to learn and sessions to attend.
Travel can be stressful. There are hundreds of apps you could use to manage agendas, trip itineraries, and sight-seeing plans. I just spent the week in Las Vegas at AWS re:Invent (more on that later) and I used 5 apps to keep my trip organized and know where I needed to go and what I should be doing for nightlife.
Video is getting it's second wind. 'Is getting' is already a little past-tense but Snapchat (or Snap Inc.) is taking it to a new level and they are doing what Google failed to do. And that is make wearable technology cool and fashionable.
Imagine for a moment your computer never getting a virus or bogus software installed. Imagine buying a brand new computer on Black Friday or Cyber Monday and 5 years from now it running almost as good as the day you bought it.
Do you have $100, $600, or $1000 to pay for the release of the files on your computer? Are you even aware that all your important files, photos, and videos could be held hostage at any time? If you don't take the steps now, once it happens the only option you have is to pay or say goodbye to everything stored on your computer.
'IT' happened again. Not because of this week's episode (at least I don't think so) but a big piece of the internet went unresponsive today because of systems with bad or default password configurations. Way more information than I can share in one episode but that is why we are here.
As an individual you might wonder “Why would someone want my information?” or “What could a hacker get out of having access to my account?” The truth is, it’s nothing personal 99% of the time. Nefarious people (hackers) might find your information as a result of a recent breach of a major service provider or they may be targeting an organization through a Phishing Campaign, Social Engineering or a vulnerable website. The damage that can be done with a single set of usernames and passwords is paramount.
There is light at the end of the tunnel I promise you. However, for the next couple years yet we are all going to be stuck with having to remember a bunch of passwords for a whole plethora of accounts. Some of which we only access once or twice a year.
We've all been there, having to pay someone back for that soda they bought you or for picking up the dinner tab because you actually did forget your wallet. Maybe you left it in your other purse - who knows? The fact is you owe someone money for something and you just assume get it taken care of immediately.
Protecting your home wireless network is paramount. Keeping prying eyes and rogue devices off of your personal internet connection is no doubt important but did you know how you have your network configured at home could be affecting how secure you are when you are staying in hotels or enjoying a latte with a friend at your local coffee shop?
Apps come and go. Great ones are a dime-a-dozen but sometimes when a great idea hits the market only to be pushed out by the big guys you get a little bummed out. Meerkat shutdown this last week. I used Meerkat right away and they pretty much got squashed by Twitter's Periscope.
In this episode I list a dozen or so apps that I highly recommend you give a download and try out while traveling locally by car or flying somewhere as well as some apps to use while at your destination.
Almost everyone I know complains about running out of storage space on their mobile phone. Some people have a lot of messages they could get read of or a couple apps they don't use anymore that they could delete, but the majority have a ton of photos.
