Quick and Easy Tech Tips




Tech Tips Guy

Are you looking for easy to understand explanations about tech topics like The Dangers of Unsecured Wi-Fi or What is RSS?? Check out the Tech Talker podcast from the folks at Quick and Dirty Tips.

You can subscribe to the audio version via iTunes or another Podcast app, listen to it on the website, or read the transcript on the website. I’ve found several episodes that helped me understand something tech a little bit better. The best part is, most episodes are less than 10 minutes long! This makes them perfect to listen to while you start dinner or wait for the kids to get out of school.

If you’ve got a few minutes to spare…or need something new to keep you company on the treadmill…check them out! You never know what you will learn!
