15: Apps For A Great Start To A New Year

Resolutions. Goals. Plans. Routines. Whatever you want to call them, you’ve made them. If you don’t already have some tools to help you start 2017 off on the right foot, you’re in the right place.

In this episode, we talk about the dozen or so apps that I use daily to stay organized and productive as well as keep track of fitness goals.

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.

13: Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud Services

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.

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?

9: Good P@$$w0rDs? No one wants my info... Right?

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.

8: Pay Friends and Family with a Single Click

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?

Meerkat Gone. Time for Houseparty...?

Meerkat Gone. Time for Houseparty...?

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.
