New Simplified Tech Blogs Coming- I’m Back

Submitted by on July 11, 2013 – 4:11 pmOne Comment

Barb Cartoon handI’m (almost) back.  The wonderful work done by an amazing collection of talented writers for Life Goes Strong has now been stricken from the cyber world. In other words, after writing some great tech articles for the last 18 months (ish), all of those useful articles have disappeared as NBCUniversal and Proctor and Gamble have taken down the site.  I will rework the articles (making them better) and post them here. Again, helping to make tech simple and helping you to choose tech to make life easier.

In the past year I have focused (pun intended) more on photography techniques and camera reviews.  Some of those articles will be here, others will be on my Barb Gonzalez Photography website where you can SEE what I’m talking about by checking out my photos.

Youcan also find stories about streaming media, smart TVs, Roku Boxes, and more in my SmartStream column for Home Theater magazine.

And stay tuned for a great service that Sears offers where you can ask any tech question and simply get it answered.  It’s like having a tech friend (me) that you message and I have to tell you what you need to know.  I think it is the perfect way to get simple answers to your specific questions without having to look up the information.

Come back as I update my site and add a lot of great articles.
