Computer Security:  The internet isn’t always a nice place to be and most people don’t fully protect themselves from the bad guys out there. We’ll explain viruses, Spyware, ramsomware, adware, hackers, pfishing attacks, ID theft scams and the countermeasures that you should be using. We’ll also show you how to use passwords, password managers, user accounts and file encryption to better secure your computer and your private personal information.

Internet SIG, September 2018, The PWAs are Coming… Finally!

No, I don’t mean Pirates With Attitude (even though that is in this list!); I’m referring to Progressive Web Apps! What are those, you ask. Imagine mobile apps that don’t take up space, don’t need to be updated, and run the same on iPhones, Android phones, and the web. These were “invented” some time ago, but are finally getting traction. We’ll look at a number of them and a few directories of them.

One slowpoke to get on this train is Facebook, so I have an Android app to show that overcomes a lot of their frustrating ways of doing things.

Do you ever wish you could be 2 people…. at least on the web? I do often and recently found an extension that makes it easy.

All this, the news, funnies, and more…
