Interesting Internet Finds – WE December 20, 2013

I have published Interesting Internet Finds monthly in the Boca Raton Computer Society’s Boca Bits monthly newsletter, and share them through APCUG‘s PUSH program with other computer/technology user group newsletter editors, for some time now.

Each month, I have many more than I can use, so have decided to start publishing some of those that were not used here. I do not go into much depth about each one, I just put them out there for you to check out yourself.

I had intended to have a few more listings this week, to make up for not posting last week, however I ended up spending Wednesday through Friday in the hospital. I am home now, but there has been no determination of the exact problem yet.

I should be returning to the most Fridays schedule, and hope you enjoy what I have posted, and return often to see what else I find interesting.
