July 2022 Brothers in Tech Suggestions (BITS)

As per Alan’s suggestion, we are going to give this a try… Well, if you were looking for an episode that will inspire you…this isn’t it.  I mean, we really weren’t very good in this one. You could use the term “train wreck”, but that might just be an understatement. That being said, we did bring our monthly suggestions for you…ho hum. So go ahead and listen to it…if you are really bored.

Alan’s Picks

·      News Explorer ($9.99 for MacOS version, $4.99 for iOS, included in SetApp). Sync your news stories across multiple devices, including RSS and Twitter feeds.

·      WD My Book Live 3TB Personal Cloud Storage NAS ($154 on Amazon). You can set this hard drive up on your home network, and everyone can wirelessly back-up their files. Great pride for 3TB of storage!

Brian’s Pics

·      Lepy Digital Amplifier ($31.99 Amazon). Have a pair of those “dumb” speakers that you would like to get some use out of? This inexpensive amp can put them to use.

·      SoFi. The financial giant now has banking options. Earn up to 1.5% on checking and savings, get up to $300 for using direct deposit, and a lot of other perks.  Plus, if you want a referral bonus, let Brian know!

Brian Jackson (the younger Brother) is an Associate Professor of Kinesiology at Pacific University and Product Director/Consultant at Senaptec, Inc.
