Today at What’s On My PC – “Following The News”

November 21, 2019


Today’s Thoughts From Rick (Following The News): 

As I have gotten older I have become more focused on politics and the news. I observed the same thing occur with my Parents and Grandparents. Today, unlike their generation, we can get the news from a buffet of news sources from around the world. One thing I highly recommend to people is to get the news from multiple sources and do not focus on any single news source. In my case, I use two software tools to do this and both are FREE. The first tool is an RSS reader, which is web-based, called Feedreader. This application has been around for a long time, has no limits on the number of feeds you add, and is very simplistic in nature. The second tool is an app for your smartphone, called Smartnews, that can be acquired from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Both of these tools allow you to quickly pull in news, as well as many other topics, from multiple sources.


Today’s Tech News Briefs:

A FREE tool that can help you escape from the bloated TV bundles; An unknown user had found a setting in the beta of Samsung’s One UI 2.0 that lets users choose between 60Hz, 120Hz (refresh rates), or automatically switch between the two; AND, Google Assistant can now help you buy movie tickets in Chrome…


Today’s Software Pick:

Opera Web Browser Portable – A free web browser that is a fast, safe and secure web browser. Opera lets you quickly pick up browsing where you left off, across all of your devices. Just sign in to your Opera account to sync browsing data – bookmarks, open tabs, passwords and typed history. [License: Freeware | Requires: Win 10 / 8 / 7 | Size: 57.4 MB ]


Today’s Android Pick:

Fast Finder – An app that is designed to find about anything on your phone, as well as, on the internet.

Today’s “How To” Pick:

How to install/uninstall add-ons in Google Docs – Each add-on also has its very own product page so if you happen to have a link to it, you can get the add-on from there. Installing a Google Docs add-on is simple; you click the ‘Free’ button if the add-on is free, or you buy it. Once you do that, it will install. The add-on will need certain permissions to work, and it will ask you to sign in with your Google account.


Today’s Amazon Deal (don’t know how long this deal will last):

Amazon has the HP DeskJet 2622 All-in-One Printer (with Wireless Printing) on sale for $20 with free shipping on $25+ or with Prime.

  1. I had to read the first part of this post with one eye shut and the other squinted. I so didn’t want a political lecture from someone I’ve grown to respect and depend upon–and you didn’t disappoint. Thank you for the apps and for avoiding politics!
