Beginners’ SIG, Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018

August 10th, 2018

10:00 amto12:00 pm

 

 

Topics:  eBay and Craigs List:

Our guest speaker, Cathy Willmann will explain how to set up an eBay account and sell your stuff worldwide.  She is very experienced in doing exactly that for the Settlement Home, a local charity.

EBay is the preeminent, worldwide marketplace for individuals and small businesses. You can buy via an online auction or use eBay’s “buy it now” feature. Sellers appreciate eBay’s worldwide scope, its convenient Paypal transaction processing and the ability to sidestep the complex distribution channels used by “bricks and mortar” companies.

CraigsList is a free, web-based classified ad service catering to local cash sales. It works almost exactly like a classified newspaper ad. Your ad can even have pictures and there’s no cost involved. You can buy & sell stuff, promote a garage sale, find contractors and employers and even post “personals.”  It’s easy to use but you should take precautions; we’ll show you how.

Date & Time: This Saturday morning, November 10th, 10am to noon.

Internet SIG, October 2018, Where to Hang…

Decrepit items going away is a good thing.  Seemingly sturdy things going away is confusing.  Our old friend, Google+, has joined the latter status!  I’ve looked at some alternatives and think I’ve found a decent one.  Let’s look it over and see if y’all agree.

Are you satisfied with the camera app on your Android phone?  I wasn’t, but then the Essential phone has been knocked for its app for some time. There are a number of “ports” of the Google Camera app now that might improve you photos as much as mine have been.

In the news, there are a couple of cool announcements from airlines and a sneak peek at a phone you fold in half!

All this and the funnies….
