The Digital Life
Welcome to 2021! Although it appears we have a few challenging months ahead, there’s much to look forward to this year. In the technology world, our biggest convention of the year, CES, has gone virtual. It’s kicking off next week, and you’ll want to watch the news for all of the crazy new technology announcements! We’ll be covering the event on our Facebook feed and in next month’s newsletter.
To start off this issue, we’ve included an article on the latest scam on COVID vaccines. Then, a couple of tips - from new Mac features to how to recycle your electronics. We also shared a few interesting updates in heath technology - including an augmented reality contact, and earphones that may aid with arthritis.
Finally, check out the story of the viral butt-less pajama ad and some interesting technology history articles.
Our Zoom Technology talks will continue this spring - schedule TBD. We’re also working on creating some online courses covering the topics discussed in our technology talks. Stay tuned!
Thanks for your continued support and all the best for your 2021!
