New video on the channel

Since being sick has shown me how truly difficult it is to fall into the life of a content creator, I wanted to do a shout out video to some of the folks that are hard at work making the tech videos that I enjoy.

Check it out, and hopefully you find some cool folks there.  Feel free to subscribe, and leave a comment and tell me what you thought about the video.  Thanks for watching!

New Product (RED) iPhone 8 and 8 Plus available tomorrow, 04/10

In somewhat surprising news, Apple announced today that you will be able to buy the Product (RED) iPhone in the 8 and 8 Plus variants, starting tomorrow.  The Product (RED) items support groups dedicated to eradicating HIV and AIDS in many nations on the African continent.  Apple has many other Product (RED) items that support this worthy cause, but if you were in the market for something a little different in your iPhone, this might be for you.

Different from previous years, the metal and glass face of the devices will be black, and not white.  This makes them a little more aethestically pleasing (if you ask me) and much less prone to showing smudges and dings as well.  Let us know in the comments below if you are planning on picking one up!

You’ve no doubt heard about the issues that Facebook has faced recently making sure its users data is kept private.  Shawn talks about this in episode 3 of the tech vlog, and comments on what Facebook was, is, and whether or not they have an obligation to curate the stuff that is being spread across their platform.  Be sure to subscribe and leave a comment on the channel!  Thanks for watching!

New video – Tech Vlog, episode 1

Had some thoughts on my mind about software updates and whatnot for a while now…and just decide to ramble on for a few minutes about that.  Might be a series…might not.  You decide!  Leave a comment on the video if you enjoyed it.  Open to any constructive feedback too….but the internet is a scary place (don’t I know it)
