The Digital Life
Here we are, another month into the year. We’re wishing you a great start to the holiday season. Keep in mind, holiday shopping deals are happening early this year due to supply chain issues. Watch out for great sales even before Black Friday on our social media and in the news!
This issue, we’re starting out the news with another look at Facebook’s rebranding into “Meta”, celebrating the “metaverse”. If you don’t know what it means, read on. We’ve also got a look at the newest macOS and an amazing new holographic TV technology.
In tips, we’ve got a breakdown of the difference between the current AirPod models, an emergency preparedness to-do, and a list that will keep you busy for hours.
Finally, have some fun and generate some fake words or tech lingo, and check out our tech history. It’s been 20 years since the iPod came out!
And what went from 25K to 57 BILLION in 25 short years? Our closing thought gives you the answer.
Have a wonderful month!
