Every Monday morning at 7:10 am, I am on air at CHOM 97.7 FM radio out of Montreal (home base). It’s not a long segment – about 10 minutes every week – to decode the future. We discuss everything that is happening in the world of technology, digital media and culture. The good folks at CHOM 97.7 FM are posting these segments weekly on i Heart Radio, if you’re interested in hearing more about what’s happening in the transformation of our digital world. I’m really excited about these weekly hits, because this is the radio station that I grew up listening to, and it really is a fun treat to be invited to the Mornings Rock with Terry DiMonte morning show. The segment is called, CTRL ALT Delete with Mitch Joel.
This week we discussed:
- Don’t panic if your Google products (Gmail, YouTube, etc…) are down. Google is experiencing a large outage this morning. I thought I was hacked. It’s not me… it’s them.
- As the year comes to a close and we head into the Holiday Season, why not take some time to clean-up and declutter your computer and smartphone. You won’t just feel better, it will make your tech run better and faster.
- Speaking of staying in for the holidays. Warner Brothers says that all of their 2021 films will be streamed right away. This has massive implications for the movie theater business, but another sign that disruption is everywhere. How do you feel about movies being released on streaming services at the same time as they come out in a movie theatre? Dune, The Matrix 4, Godzilla vs. Kong, and many other hotly anticipated big flicks are coming soon!
- App of the Week: Duet – turn you iOs or Android device into a second display for your Mac and PC for about $20.
You can also listen in via I Heart Radio.
