Technology review updates for 2018

I decided after many years to upgrade the quality of the sound recorder for my podcast. In the past, I have used a handheld zoom, a great tool, but frankly, it just doesn’t have the same quality as a dedicated microphone. In January I will post my first podcast with the new system, we will have to see if the sound quality has improved. I try to post two podcasts a month and often share my Fred and Ed stories on my podcast. Https://docanersen.podbean.com. The podcast is also listed in the iTunes podcast application. I won’t say it is the greatest podcast you will ever listen o, but it is the best one I have ever created.

One of my goals for the new year is more focused reviews. Reviews of technologies more focused on things people need and use. That is a change from my current shameless review series that focuses on things I am interested in, but that other people may not need for many years. This isn’t me giving up on high tech; rather it is me responding to reader asks. I have sometimes been asked over the last five months to focus on things people need and use.

I will pick a category based on reader feedback and then will pick the best device in that category to review. I have lots of years of technology experience both as a user and as an administrator. I will happily focus on either pending of course, who asks me and what they are looking for in the review. My ratings will include the easy of installing the hardware or software and of course the ease of use. My scale focuses on use, value and of course pending who asked any other things. I will rate the solution on a 1-10 scale.

10          best perfect amazing

7-9         really good

4-6         good to average

3            below average

1-2         not good at all

  • don’t waste your money

Thanks for the feedback – hopefully, this will help people!
