Our devices don't notify us about software updates for no reason, they're trying to protect us. SumnerOne IT expert, Randy Moore, joined the Guy Phillips Show last Friday for Tech Talk to share some advice about those device update you may have been putting off. After this Tech Talk segment on The Big 550 KTRS, you may think again before clicking the "postpone update" button one more time.
We're living in a world where DIY projects are taking over. Whether you're into creating crafts, furniture, or other products, there's a good chance you've tested your luck with the DIY trend. At SumnerOne we've been working to grow our crafting skills and use the technology we have available to bring our projects to life.

Biometric data is being used and collected by a great number of devices that we use every day. Whether you're using your thumb to unlock your smartphone or use facial recognition to gain access to a certain area of your workplace, biometric technology is all around us. Our IT expert, Jeff Groby, headed to the studio at The Big 550 KTRS for Tech Talk to discuss the different uses for this technology. As always, the crew on the Guy Phillips Show was ready to talk about the topic and the latest in technology news.
You may have considered it when shopping for a new computer, cell phone or smart watch, but is it really worth the cost savings to purchased used technology? We joined the Guy Phillips gang at KTRS for Tech Talk last week to chat about the right way to purchase used equipment to maximize your investment. And, speaking of modern technology, even with the storm of the decade hitting the Midwest, Chadd Haselhorst, was able to call in to be Guy’s technology expert this week without having to be out and about in the blizzard conditions surrounding KTRS’ studio! Together, we cleared the air on how to know if you're buying used or new and some tips to keep in mind to be sure you're not wasting your money on a hunk of old and unusable technology.
The old saying was right, you get what you pay for. The common saying also rings true when it comes to the latest technologies of our generation. Sometimes you can find a solid alternative to what you're looking for with a better price. Other times, the savings can also mean sacrificing quality and features. Well-known brands and bigger price tags can lend to the assurance of the quality of what you’re buying. Technology is one a big area where you truly get what you pay for. Springing for the reputable brand or device can make all the difference in the world. I learned this lesson the hard way, and my hope is that others can learn from my mistake and apply this to future technology purchases.

Internet of Things is such a technical topic, Jeff broke things down to an easily consumable level for everyone to enjoy.
