Tech Tips and How-Tos

Submitted by on May 10, 2012 – 1:53 pm2 Comments

Yes, I disappeared from Simple Tech Guru for a little while, but I’ll try to return.  These days I am writing for Tech Goes Strong to help simplify all kinds of technology.

If you are looking for my posts on using technology for training, I have started posting them there with training for marathons.  (No, I’m still training for triathlons, ).  You’ll learn about what running apps and other apps can set up a training program for you whether you are training for marathons or triathlons.

If you are looking for new posts on how to use iPhones, I have a few posts.

If you want to learn tips on cutting the cord and quitting cable, I posted my unfortunately unsuccessful attempt there.

I’ll be back soon to add links to more interesting articles you can use.
