Your digital media catch-up is right here.
Every Tuesday – for just a few minutes – I join Heather Backman (my old buddy from her days on CHOM FM) on the air at Jack 103 (Rogers Sports & Media) to give a quick blast about the current state of technology, media and Internet culture. We’re calling the segment Tech Tuesday (and we do it in just a few minutes).
What is Tech Tuesday?
If you ever find yourself wondering… What, exactly, is the point of TikTok? How can I make myself look better on a Zoom? Reddit? What’s that about? How do I help my kids be safer online? Who’s the latest creator and streamer that I should be checking out?
You are not alone.
How many times have you lost your AirPods? Imagine on a plane, in a hotel, etc… Well, Apple really solved for that. They did a firmware update, so if you have Apple’s Find My app enabled (and, you really should), these now include your AirPods. Amazing technology. Think I can embed this tech into my kids? (I’m joking… kinda…).
“Using Apple’s Find My app, it was already possible to view the location where your AirPods were last paired with your iPhone or play a sound to make them easier to dig out of the couch cushions. But this new update greatly expands that functionality. Now you can activate Lost Mode and have millions of other iPhones, iPads, and Macs aid in the search should your AirPods Pro or AirPods Max go missing. If they come within Bluetooth range of another Apple device, you’ll be alerted to their location.”
Aren’t you excited about never losing your headphones again?
App of the week: AlternativeTo – This website lets you find free (or cheaper, but great) alternatives to popular software. Love it.
Once the segment goes live on Jack 103, I will post it here for you to listen in, learn, share and engage….
