Saving Your Life with Technology

In this presentation Ron wears both his Doctor and Technology hats. We start with a fictitious patient who lives alone in an RV Resort in Mesa and develops some medical issues that nearly cause a death. We look at common medical problems in the elderly that can be helped by wearable devices. Internet of Things (IoT) can also play a big role in helping seniors with isolation and communication.

Protecting Your Digital Life
Bob Gostischa, IT Security Specialist; Avast Evangelist
Staying secure and guarding as much of our privacy as possible is a constant challenge. Between phishing, scams, ID theft, ransomware, data collection, and mobile malware, it’s never been more important to protect our digital life. Our security and privacy are constantly in danger of being attacked from many sources and Bob will explain the importance of guarding our online presence. This presentation covers how we can protect our presence on the web as well as our computers (Windows and Mac), tablets, smartphones, and other smart devices.
He will also share what he uses to keep his computers and smart devices as well as his connected Internet of Things devices secure.

Easy Transition from Windows to Linux
John Kennedy, Webmaster, East Central Ohio Technology User’s Club
With the deadline for Microsoft dropping support for Windows 7 (and following that Windows 8.1) coming in a couple of months, many Windows users are wondering what options they have. They can buy a new computer which comes with Windows 10. They can hope that their older computer can upgrade to Windows 10. Or they can consider switching over to the Linux operating system which is both free and works great on older computers. Learn how easy it is to transition over to Linux with some cross-platform programs that you might already be using. John will be sharing the programs he used while a Windows user that he still uses as a Linux user. Using these programs will make the transition to Linux a breeze.
