The Digital Life
Another month of 2021 is under the belt - it must be time for some freshly curated tech news!
Our featured article this month is a little thought piece I wrote recently while optimizing websites. You may be surprised what you learn about life rather than code from this article!
Then, take time to read about a new text scam and what you shouldn’t do with your new iPhone. We’ve also included a new article on the new Samsung phone (it’s cheaper this year), and a tip worthy of a sticky note.
The biggest electronics show of the year, CES, was virtual this year, but that didn’t stop us from picking out some highlights for you. Closing out, let’s take a step back to yesterday’s home of the future. And don’t forget to watch for upcoming details of my next Zoom talk in February.
Thanks as always for tuning in!

Masks, disinfectants, air purifiers and touchless technology are CES 2021's answer to COVID-19
ColdSnap is the Keurig of Soft-Serve Ice Cream Makers

In tech history...the home of tomorrow!
Now that we’ve talked about the future of tech from CES, let’s look back at the future of tech in the 1950’s. This classic 10 minute video will have you both laughing and amazed. Although the “micro-fiche” recipe screen part-way through is hilarious, it’s not too far off from the Echo Show or Google Home. Enjoy the “Westinghouse All Electric House” 🙂🙂

Join the next Zoom talk
You can be one of the cool kids like the video above. All you need to do is sign up for my next Zoom discussion. This month, I’ll be reviewing “the Cloud” again. Despite most people using cloud computing every day, it’s still a nebulous term for many (yuk yuk). If you’re still confused about where you’re storing your things, how to clean up the cloud, and more, stay tuned.
I’ll be sending an e-mail announcement with more details soon!
Incidentally, here’s a representation of what “the cloud” looks like in real life:
