Tech Wiz wandering cell phones and really bad pictures…

. Updates. In the past two days, I have updated two PCs and two TVs. I still have two TV’s to go and about 3 PC’s, but I will get there. It is critical to always have your virus, malware, and operating systems up to date. Why? The more you are up-to-date, the less likely any one specific issue or security problem can get you. I know it can be frustrating, but honestly, it is the best way.

The madness beyond the region is that exp0loitations (that is what hackers are looking for) are often a race. The company releasing the software knows there are issues. The hacker knows there are issues, the first one to get out wins. If you stay current with the manufacturers recommended settings you may have changed enough that the hackers hole won’t work on your computer.

I remember when GPS chips were added to phones. I used to carry a portable GPS with me. Now I carry a phone with me. Once upon a time, they added cameras to cell phones. I still carry a camera with me most of the time, but my phone is always with me. What a different world, because where I once used to have to carry a kindle, my phone, a computer and a tablet, I can do 100% with my phone and a projector. Screen as a service has arrived. The only thing my phone doesn’t do is process lots of data in excel well. I still need a laptop or a tablet for that. But I haven’t turned on my kindle in a long time. I still love the concept of the Kindle, I just use the Kindle application now, rather than the actual Kindle. Someday, the app will have feature parity with the devices. Or, Amazon will release a Kindle with enough memory for users like me, I have a lot of books I’ve gotten over the years. P{lus I am a long time Audible member. I have a lot of audio books as well. In fact, I have well more than the 32 gigs my kindle can support.
