More Interesting Internet Finds – WE May 10, 2013

Introduction

In the course of going through the more than 200 news feeds, I often run across things that I think might be of interest to other user group members.

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.
