Travel Gremlins for your digital life! (10/16/21 Part 2)

Sam Show Archives, Topics

Got your vaccine card handy? Looking forward to travelling off-island? Well Jonathan did and boy-howdy, did he have fun! But he also ran into some snafus with his digital life!

Travel Tech!

A few things he’s noticed:

  • A smartphone is really not optional with some airlines! Boarding? Ordering food? In-flight entertainment?
  • You’re going to want to find out where the USB chargers are when in the airport and on the flight! Because not all planes have those things in good spots!
  • Guess how much stuff is being handled digitally or via app? You guessed it! TONS!

All this and MORE this hour!

This morning Sam’s beloved desktop computer breathed its last.

Kaboom!

So, we’re going over his options and asking the questions you should ask yourself when considering a new computer! You wouldn’t buy $500 high heels to go hiking in, nor would you wear slippers in the snow! So finding the best fit for your needs is essential!
