Do you have a shelf or drawer of old tech devices that are just collecting dust? Maybe you told yourself that you would use it as a backup for your new device or you just didn't know what to do with it once you were done, it happens. Our IT expert, Chadd Haselhorst joined the crew at The Big 550 KTRS for Tech Talk to discuss some options around recycling dated technology.
Last week on Tech Talk with The Big 550 KTRS, we took the myth busters approach and tackled some technology myths that are believed by end users. Myths can get created based off of opinion, a story twist, or even a white lie. Our IT expert, Jeff Groby joined the Guy Phillips Show to set the record straight on smartphone news, cell phone reception and taking care of your computer.

It likes to communicate using a series of beeping sounds to let you know it's awake and ready to go. Perhaps the weirdest clue of them all, sometimes it likes to eat paper. What's your best guess? If you guessed the new person who started last week, you may want to get them some help because we were actually describing your office multifunction printer! Over the years, your printer has brought forward loads of convenience, but its enhanced abilities have also increased potential risks to your business security.

It's always a good time when we can pull something straight from the headlines and give our spin on the topic to educate the listeners of The Big 550 KTRS!
