Interesting Internet Finds – WE January 22, 2016

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.

Computers, Technology, and User Groups Blog Interesting Internet Finds Word Cloud

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. Check them out for yourself and let me know what you think.

  1. Steve,

    I recognize most of the products that the articles are about but do not use most of them.

    The one I do use and is of interest to me is about Netflix. I only use it for personal purposes but I do travel.

    So far I have not had the experience of having it blocked. I will be checking out the post on this though.

    Thanks for all of the great resources.

    • Dee Ann,

      I am glad you check out my links.

      The Netflix post talks about them cracking down on those using a VPN to get around the country restrictions. If you are traveling within the US and not using a VPN you probably won’t be blocked.

      Steve
