I had a chance to visit with Scott Sands of WSPD Radio in Toledo on the benefits and features of Microsoft Windows 10 as well as a couple of points to consider before upgrading and something to change as soon as you do!
In Today’s TechBlast – Microsoft Windows 10 is Here, Whose Joke is it anyways? The Motorola X Style new Smartphone has an Impressive Feature List!
I’ve heard quite a bit about Periscope over the past few months and finally decided to pull the trigger and see what it’s all about. I like to check out new social media tools when they pop up to see just how different they are with the many options available to us “User Folk”
Periscope can be a total blast and has been built with the concept of “Periscoping” the user experience through the smart phone. Although some of the uses, even myself, have been for engaging interaction among the viewers in a virtual chat room which runs on top of your video while you shoot it – No Editing, It’s all Live.
One of the best uses for the Periscope service was a video I checked out yesterday of a Surfer Mitch Oates ( @lifeatseaphoto ) with his device attached to his surfboard! Great Live Video but a good way to go through phones! There’s another Periscoper that covers just about everything she does, Tasmin Lucia Khan (@Tasmin) riding in cabs, cooking breakfast and putting on makeup..I know, compelling right? Actually she is, the fact she engages the audience is refreshing. We used to do that a lot in Music Radio. 🙁
Share It with the world, make it available to select friends and even save it to your camera roll! Just don’t point it at the TV during say “Game of Thrones” or during a Pay Per View event – This has been an Issue in the Past.
Check out Periscope which is owned by Twitter after a nice payout of about $100 Million dollars (Did Dr. Evil handle that deal?) If you have a Periscope please let us know so we can check it out! Follow us Andy Taylor @techtalkradio
Sometimes walking into a Wireless Carrier store that sells just smart phones and service isn’t enough for consumers seeking out the best bang for the buck.
For the many making the move to a new or first time Smartphone brings questions that need to be answered, that’s where the Verizon Wireless Smart Store comes in.
The Second in the Tucson Area, the Verizon Wireless “Smart Store” features close to 2700 Square feet of area that gives consumers a more driven experience with new technology that is Hands On with all devices in “Lifestyles Zones” on the 4G LTE network from Verizon. The idea is to give the customers access to more than 90 smartphones and about 800 different accessories throughout the different zones.
There are so many different uses for technology in our life and the lifestyle zones for customers of the Verizon Wireless store will feature a Get Fit area giving a better hands on look at how active sports and fitness consumers or those wanting to engage a better fitness lifestyle can benefit with the technology available.
There are many options in Audio with our devices and that is where the “Amplify It” section will appeal to those wanting a better listening experience for themselves or for a room of people. Bluetooth speakers of different sizes and types will be available to listen to for the ear of those needing a speaker solution.
Another section includes a “Have Fun” area with some of the newest and enjoyable games. This is extremely popular for those with children looking for education/learning titles that can be paired with a tablet or even smartphones. We’ve featured devices such as “Ollie” along with Word and Shapes toys which can turn a road trip into a learning experience.
One of my favorite areas in the Lifestyle Zones has got to be Home on the Go. This is where a consumer could get a first hand look at “Canary” the easiest to set up and use Home Monitoring Cam I’ve ever used. Other Home Monitoring options and devices are also on display at the Verizon Wireless Smart Store.
With the different areas consumers can also benefit with workshops for those looking to tie in some of these devices added to their digital lifestyle along with new tablets and smartphones. These free in-store customizable wireless workshops are set to provide personalized hands-on training
The New Verizon Wireless “Smart Store” is located in Oro Valley at 10580 North Oracle Road
