How Our Lives Changed After Purchasing a Google Home

Google Home

Techno Goober employs a brother-sister team. One tech and one amazing (and very humble) writer. Recently, a client approached Tech Steve (my brother) and asked about installing a Google Home.

The client wanted to know: Is Google Home worth it?

The product boasts voice-controlled services like music control, TV control, shopping lists, phone calls, texting, and smart home features like turning lights on and off. We all know that products may boast amazing services, but are the services really all that special?

Is the #GoogleHome really worth it? Our expert opinion says yes! Hint: Try asking Google to tell you a riddle. Click To Tweet

Internet Privacy Practices for Businesses

Online Security is a must

As small businesses, it’s important for us to be conscious of the security needs of our clients and customers. As a web development company, in particular, we must always be thinking about how to maintain the privacy and security of our clients AND our clients’ clients.

Collecting Information

As a business, it is necessary to collect information about your client. This information can be used for a variety of purposes from leads to newsletters or even internal research. The most important thing that businesses must remember when collecting any information from clients is to collect only what you need and maintain transparency.

What’s Your Password?

Password security

There are a number of factors that impact the security of your password from the complexity and length or even how easy it is to guess by those around you.

To check if your password is secure enough, ask yourself the following questions. (And answer honestly.)

  • How long has it been since you last changed your password?
  • Do you use the same one for more than one website?
  • How many people know what it is?
  • How complex or simple is it?
How secure is your password? Could your accounts be in danger? #goobertips Click To Tweet

Turn it off and back on again. No really.

Turn it off then back on

We’ve all been there. Your device isn’t working quite as expected, and you are starting to get really frustrated. You give Techno Goober a call to speak with one of our expert techs, but they give you that dreaded advice.

Turn it off. And turn it back on again.

Before you get angry, this actually works. The next time your device has a glitch, your Wi-Fi is acting up, your application is slow, or your laptop is acting up, try this advice. Turn it off then turn it back on again.

Rebooting your device can help with any number of issues. It works with desktop computers, laptops, tablets, game consoles, phones, printers, and wireless routers.

When you turn your device off and on again, it resets your device, and it begins reading the code from the beginning. Sometimes the computer loses its place like reading when you’re tired and accidentally skipping a line in your book. Going back to the beginning of the paragraph, like resetting your device, helps you find your place again.

Before you get angry, this actually works. Turn it off, and turn it back on again. #goobertips Click To Tweet
