TECH TALK 2.0
by Mike Masiello, 5 Sessions, Fridays, January 22 – February 19, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Our daily use of technology was more important than ever in 2020. This will continue in 2021. Tech Talk 2.0 will present some of the same topics that were addressed in Tech Talk 1.0, but also new content will be added. We will discuss local area broadband options (fiber, cable, cellular internet), home entertainment live TV streaming options (You Tube TV, Hulu, Windstream TV, etc.) and different options in streaming devices (Chromecast, Firestick, Smart TV's, etc.). Security topics will be discussed, online security (browsing safely, phishing, scams, etc.) various Windows 10 security features, how to clean your browser, the importance of Firewall and Virus protection. Backups will be covered, Windows 10 operating system and data backups. Finally, free applications will be discussed. Mainly these will be entertainment streaming options and online financial applications. The main goal of the class is to learn not only from the class content but from each other so bring your ideas, comments, and questions.

Mike and his wife live Young Harris and think it is one of the nicest areas in the country to live. They enjoy hiking the local trails and the AT, gardening, visiting the many antique stores in the area and of course taking classes at ICL.
