This week Melissa, Elisa and Mike discuss the Apple Keynote and give our thoughts on what was announced, what we like, what we don’t like and what we are looking forward to.
We start out talking about Mike’s work ethic which then leads to Melissa asking parenting advice on how to motivate her kids to do chores. This leads to us talking about how we raised and taught our kids to be responsible adults. From there it morphs to the importance of community in our lives. Melissa asks about how much information we share on social media, what our comfort level is and what our security measures are.
For our picks we start with Melissa who wants cleanse herself with a BioBidet Bliss. Then Elisa wants to cool down with a Dyson Pure Cool Tower. Mike just wants to escape reality with a PS4 VR Bundle.

Topic range from the operating systems, hardware and software issues, services, upgradeability to subscription services and Photos. But we also have some positive things to say. Tune in to find out.

First Mike regales everyone with tales of his Snowmageddon that hit the Midwest. Everyone else’s weather was just peach by comparison. Then we have a discussion about Mike’s hard drive failure which then turns to a dialogue about backups and redundancy. This leads to what to do with your digital heritage upon your ultimate demise.
On a lighter note our picks are to make us happy. Melissa wants a Emart Photo Video Studio Background Backdrop Stand Kit to take better pictures. Elisa wants to do some traveling with REYLEO Hardside Luggage 21 Inch Carry On Luggage. After Mike’s digital scare he wants to make sure he can recover his data by backing up using a mini PC as a backup and recovery system.
