Finding the Right Network Protection for Your SMB for 2014

Last week I had a friend go through a major problem with his company — a cyber-attack happened and they lost data. I remember when it happened to me years ago. We built a strong infrastructure, but one wrong move by a overactive employee set us back a few months as we had to rebuild some vital databases. When we talked about it, he thought they had the right protection. Looking into it deeper, they didn’t have any. It wasn’t a real surprise since this group is just starting out. It might even be a lucky move for them because the data loss could have been years worth of work. Around this time, I report on my Day in Tech History podcast how many hackers attack during the holiday season. Heck, we just saw Target go into a major issue with their credit card system getting hacked. Small or...

Geekazine 2013 in Review

Subscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS I am still running a snails pace and several websites that have not been up regularly since December 6th. I have been told everything from my plugins causing problems to getting a DDOS. The reality is – the site went down the day it was transferred to a new server by GoDaddy. But the show must go on! Therefore, I am writing this in an alternate spot in hopes that I can post it today. After all, I wrote 3 posts yesterday and they were still finally all posted this morning. TWIGG was a slower pace since I was about ready to collapse. I still had to go shovel snow! Nonetheless, we talked about the new prescription Glass and how you can play Duck Hunt. Ford was Awesome! I got some great video on their new driver assist project and how I...

Ford Fusion Hybrid Driver Assist Car Project

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSFord unveiled a new project to help make driving safer; a part of Ford’s Blueprint for Mobility project. The Ford Fusion Hybrid Driver Assist Car Project is not a driverless car but more of a pre-emptive option so everyone can stay safe. The Ford concept car is not going to be out on the road anytime soon and definitely will not have any weird-looking spinning cameras on the roof. When the technology is ready (10-20 years), the car will 3D model its surroundings so it can watch for any anomalies — a child running to get a ball, a deer coming out of the woods, or the car in front of the other that had to stop abruptly. The Ford driver assist will then spring into action by applying the brakes before you can. Ford partnered with the University of Michigan and State...

96 Hours of Hell and Websites

Subscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS It was a horrible 96 hours as last Friday, GoDaddy decided to move my websites from a retiring server to a new box. The problems started from there. Wikazine is completely down. Geekazine gets 500 and 503 errors. But I still want to get a show out to you guys. So this will be a shorter version of the podcast.

Fitbug Orb – Activity Monitor: Track Your Steps, Sleep Patterns

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSFor the last couple weeks I have been wearing a Fitbug Orb – a device that tracks my steps and sleep patterns. I know a little more and have changed my activities for a more healthy lifestyle. We all know that 20 minutes of heart-raising activity, three times a week will make us healthier. We also know that 6-8 hours of good REM sleep will relieve stress and heart health. But do we know if we’re achieving those goals? A device such as the Fitbug Orb will help us understand these goals. We can then loose weight and live longer. The Orb is a disc that you can wear on your body – via watch strap, belt clip or just in your pocket. The orb communicates via iOS device and certain Android devices via bluetooth. Simply press the button to transfer data....

Black Friday From Underwear? Better Than Doing it on Thursday!

Subscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS The first snow of the season hit Madison Monday. I actually had to break the shovel out – and Google Glass. Since the update to Google Hangouts, I thought I would try TWIGG as a hangout so you can watch live. Man – the problems I had with that… I am now a Helpouts mentor – Get help with Podcasting and Wirecast. Finally, want to take a moment to shout out to my Aunt Pat and Uncle Ed who both passed away in the last couple weeks.

Manga Studio EX5, Wacom Intuos Manga Tablet: Computer to Graphics Station

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSI was asked to check out the new version of Manga Studio EX5, but I couldn’t do much with only a mouse. Therefore, I got a Intuos Manga pen-tablet to work with it. The one-two punch helped me create some fun anime and other graphics. Manga Studio EX5 Get the Manga Studio EX 5 at Amazon I wish I had this computer drawing software back when I was drawing my comic “Cybeeks”. Manga Studio EX5 is a great way to create graphic novels, storyboards, logos and a whole bunch more. I haven’t drawn in a while, so I wasn’t going to make many masterpieces. Yet, I really didn’t need to. The software has multiple options and staged 3D characters for you to create a quick image the way you like it. You can also use the 3D models as tracing dummies around your...
