4-19-2021 Tech for Seniors - Episode 56

Image
  Another well attended show. (119) We covered many topics including,  Security, ATSC 3.0 (NextGen TV) Part 2, Virtual Tech. Part 2, Starlink update. It took quite some time to put my content together. Internet speed is relative  and you never appreciate your own speed till you're someplace where the speed  is about 1/5 of what you're used to. I'll be happy to again be on my own network.
