Featured Tech Site: The Online Mom

September 4, 2017

Today at “What’s On My PC” I want to share a tech site with you that exclusively assists parents with keeping up with all the technology that is now second nature to their kids… It is called “The Online Mom”. I have added “The Online Mom” to “What’s On My PC” collection of tech bookmarks.

Click on the tab, at the top of the blog, labeled “Bookmarks4Techs“. There you will find a collection of over 900 tech sites.

About “The Online Mom”:

Today’s children are exposed to a dizzying array of technology platforms and services that present endless possibilities…and more than a few problems. How do parents keep up with all the technology that is now second nature to their kids? How can parents make informed decisions about how their kids spend their time online and which tech devices and internet sites are appropriate? How can parents give their kids guidelines that should apply both inside and outside the home? Above all, how can parents keep their kids safe – protecting them from online dangers, whether it’s cyber-bullying, online predators, pornography or ID theft?

Founded by parents with extensive technology backgrounds, The Online Mom is an organization and web site devoted to providing the knowledge, the advice, and the tools that will help all parents protect their kids and encourage responsible behavior as they make the most of the new digital world.

Whether it’s understanding social networking, photo sharing, texting,YouTube or just finding the right video games, The Online Mom has the explanations, the advice and the recommendations you have been looking for.

The Galaxy S8 was a clear contender for the top spot, and the G6 finally let me place an LG phone within the top 10. To be clear, the top 10 smartphones in this list come very close to each other in terms of performance, design, and features, and you’d easily be happy with our number 10 pick as you would with our number one pick. It all comes down to your personal preference over design and features.

GEGeek – My “Go To” Computer Information Technology Resource (and Toolkit)

March 7, 2017

If you have a passion for computer information technology and need a “go to” resource, I strongly encourage you to visit (and bookmark), GEGeek.com … I found this site approximately 4 years ago, met the original developer, and ended up including it as an extension of my blog. I have a real passion for technology; and, when I found this site, I knew I had hit the jackpot.

If you notice, at the top of the blog, you will find a tab labeled GEGeek that will redirect you to the the GEGeek site. The current developer (Jason) continues to make this site, in my opinion, one of the best “go to” sites on the internet for resources relating to computer information technology.  If I was a new tech, I would be digging into this site to expand my knowledge, due to the fact that the developers have extensive backgrounds of many years as techs. If you are a home-based computer user, definitely bookmark this site as a resource to troubleshoot any future problems you will encounter.

A gem at GEGeek.com is their continued development and compilation of their portable Tech Toolkit. A minimum $15 donation is required to get access to the toolkit. I am personally subscribed and I can tell you, I have never seen anything like this when it comes to tech toolkits.  As a matter of fact, you are not getting a toolkit, you are getting the whole garage with every tech tool imaginable inside…  Enjoy!!!
