Starting Light — Beverage Pick Of The Week
I probably have 2 alcoholic drinks a year, so my beverage pick is going to be something else. Diet soda can be taboo, but some people just prefer it or can’t handle a regular cola. I don’t drink a lot of soda, but I am a big fan of Polar beverages based in Worcester. I just happened to see a liter of their Diet Cherry Soda at the grocery store. I’m so glad I took a chance. Its the best tasting soda I’ve ever had. Moxie would be #2 for me.
Tech Tips You Can Use
I think it’s a great idea to Restart or Shut Down your computer every week or at least every two weeks. Macs and Windows PCs can be restarted. iPhones and iPads must be Shut Down, by either going to Settings >> General >> Shut Down or by pressing the the correct buttons (hope I’ve shown you this already). Some Android phones have a Restart feature, some will also need to be shut down. The shut down should just be temporary. I do not believe in shutting down the computer every night. Repeated on and offs will shorten its life. Just let your computer go to sleep. This way it will get its updates.
Deal of the Day (and in General)
Fifty dollars off on a Mac computer is a deal, even in these times, but the $699 Mac Mini is priced to sell from the get go. This model has the 256 GB SSD hard drive and is really targeted to those users who are doing email, shopping, browsing, and banking with small collections of photos and music (not tons of files). Amazon often has this model for $650 which is great but while supplies last they are selling it for an amazing $570. A steal! Keep in mind with the Mac Mini you provide your own keyboard mouse and monitor and speakers but you can buy these economically. Apple brand is not required. Under $1000 for a Mac desktop all in sounds like a winner to me. Amazon link https://amzn.to/3sxYvxs
Coming Soon To A Theater Near You
Well — it should be a live streaming event and not a theater, but I expect Apple to release a new iPhone SE as soon as this month. It is expected to feature 5G radios for the first time. With ATT, Verizon, and T-Mobile operating only on 4G and 5G signals by the end of the year – I’ll be curious to see if Apple can include 5G for the past $399 price. Anyway, the SE is the winner winner chicken dinner of the low cost iPhone options. Get the 13 if you need the better cameras, but the the SE is still a fine phone.
Song of the Week
On this back to business theme, how could I not close with a song with the chorus line of “let’s get down to business.” Put on your dancing shoes, get up and move. Here is a techno song from your tech guy. “The Business” by Tiesto. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PO_d169ibZ8
