Internet SIG, August 2018, New Toys and Tracking Tools

I’ve always enjoyed the posters that say “He who dies with the most toys wins!”. While others are far ahead of me, I try to keep up… as thriftfully (is that a word?) as possible.

So I had had my eye on a particular new Chromebook and recently encountered them with a few extras at the warehouse store and so came home with his and hers! There are many nice improvements since my earlier one, but there is also one annoying retrogression (I feel like I’m writing clickbait titles!). I’ll bring them both so we can all take a closer look.

To Do lists are great for most tasks, but not so much for projects with many pieces and parts that progress through a series of steps. I explored a bit and found what I needed was a “Kanban” tool… with “swimlanes”! Most are meant for corporate use, but I found a couple I like where the free version is sufficient… and a big help.

If that’s not enough, I also came across a great deal on a new smartphone and couldn’t resist it either! It’s running Android 9 Pie and didn’t break the bank. So we’ll look at what’s new and the deals too.

All this, news, tips, and the funnies…
