Interesting Internet Finds – WE May 23, 2014

I publish 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.

Each month, I find many more things than I can use, so have decided to start publishing some of those that were not used for the newsletter on this blog most Fridays.

I do not go into much depth about each one, I just put them out there for you to check out yourself.

The Difference Between Tablets and eBook Readers
This post explains what ebook reader can do, and what a tablet can do. Some people might think they are interchangeable, but they are not. I use both.


I have not necessarily checked each link or process out, but if listed I have used the site enough to trust them.

That said, please let me know if something doesn’t work correctly, or the listed site has incorrect information.
