Looking for a good case?
It is a bad idea to use a phone without a case when these phones are wrapped around glass and plastic and can be slippery to hold onto to (it's a phone, not a dinner plate).
Many who have purchased Otter Box cases, over the past few years, haven't been happy that after all the physics data Otter Box gives you, the sides aren't well protected.
Some of that is the result of buying a new phone right away, without waiting three to six months for third party companies to make adequate accessories (this is always been an IT problem that has happened for 40 years). Sometimes it doesn't pay to be first with the latest and the greatest.
My new phone is protected with a case from Evocel. They make cases for every phone out there. They are stylish, rugged, and shock proof.
New videos posted
During the first week of September, three new videos were produced covering Data Responsibility, Cloud Service, and an introduction to the Rasperry Pi.
The website will be expanding with a new secition for Raspberry Pi and Linux content.
This Summer, two additional Raspberry Pis were added to the network to cover VPN, media services, and a personal cloud server.
In the past few years, Microsoft has added Linux options to Windows 10 as well as Windows Server 2019 giving people and businesses the options to use Open VPN (Virtual Private Network) and SSH (Secured Shell)
Linux is a derivative of an operating system (known as Linux) that has been around since 1966 and still has relevance for personal and business applications.
There will be a series of videos to show how a small $50 computer can backup your phone as well as keep you in a secured connection.
