TRACK 1
1:00 PM ET
Let's Go Shopping
Ron Brown, Program Chair, Silvercom Computer & Technology Club
Ron will discuss shopping apps that your favorite grocery store uses and show some interesting things you can do with the Walmart software. Navigating the Amazon Eco System with Whole Foods, Amazon Fresh, Deals of the Day, and Amazon Prime Day can be challenging. Ron will cover how to pay on-line, return items, and get your warranties.

2:00 PM ET
Audible
Hewie Poplock, APCUG Rep, Central Florida Computer Society & Sarasota Technology User Group; Chromebook Evangelist
Many people, especially seniors, are finding more free time while confined to their homes. One technology that is not often considered is audiobooks. Reading becomes more difficult as we age. Listening to someone read has become very accessible. There are many ways to get professionally read books for free, inexpensively, or by subscription. Hewie will give a brief background and then provide ways to find thousands of audiobooks. He will also provide a few sample excerpts of books to illustrate the quality of audiobooks.

Track 2
1:00 PM ET
A hearing revolution with healthable devices
Dr. Rachele Orsini, Au.D, Central Florida Field Representative
Starkey Hearing Technologies
Today’s technology is more advanced than ever before with artificial intelligence and sensors leading the way and changing lives in many areas including healthcare. Hearing technology has always been an effective and proven solution for individuals with hearing loss but what if we could do more with an ear worn device? At Starkey we are the first and only manufacturer with a life changing healthable device that incorporates Artificial Intelligence and Sensors that do more than just improve hearing.
We have started a hearing revolution with healthable devices that do more for us….they go beyond the traditional hearing aid. Did you ever think that your hearing device would track your physical movements, provide you with a daily brain engagement score, detect a fall and send alerts, answer to voice commands, translate 27 languages in real time and much, much more. This session will highlight who is Starkey and why you should rethink your hearing healthcare with a healthable.

2:00 PM ET
Digitize old album photos into Google Photos and Chromecast to TV
Chris and Jim Guld, Geeks On Tour
Is technology passing you by? Jim and Chris are here to help. Their presentation will show us how to digitize our old album photos into Google Photos and Chromecast them to our TV. Sounds like a great project while we are staying safer in place.


TRACK 3
3:00 PM ET
What's happening with your group while everyone is staying safer in place? Let's share what we are doing with our groups? Meeting via Zoom or another online app? Streaming via Facebook or YouTube? Members are afraid of anything online. Over-thinking how to start having meetings via Zoom? Let's help each other through this crisis and, at the end, still have members who want to attend meetings.
