More Interesting Internet Finds – WE July 12, 2013

I have published Interesting Internet Finds monthly in the Boca Raton Computer Society’s Boca Bits monthly newsletter, and share them through the APCUG 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.
