Each week we visit the studio of The Big 550 KTRS for Tech Talk on the Guy Phillips Show! Our IT experts join Guy, his co-host, Heidi Glaus, and their producer to talk about the happenings in technology and cyber security. Last week our expert, Randy Moore, joined the show to talk about a little bit of everything.
If you've ever strung together the sentence, "I don't care if my email gets hacked, there's nothing important in there." You're wildly mistaken. Even if you only use your email as a home base for your social media accounts and to stay in touch with old friends, you're still at risk. The vast majority of account holders use their email for bills, work, and other bits of personal information. If just about anything related to your email account was to fall into the hands of a cyber criminal, you should expect disaster. Here are 4 reasons it's time to up your email security game.
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.
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.
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.
