Gmail gets a facelift – security enhancements, general enhancements plus a bar on the right side for tasks.

Disney Creates Haptic Jacket – https://www.theverge.com/2018/4/26/17284058/disney-force-jacket-physical-experienes-vr-virtual-reality-haptic

Tony jumped in chat and share these SmartVests with us too.  https://smartvest.com/using-smartvest/

Have you seen the new style of video on Youtube?  Check out the Invicta Channel https://www.youtube.com/user/THFEProductions or one I can’t stop watching, https://www.youtube.com/user/SergiuHellDragoonHQ

Feature

Interactive TV – Hannah and I watch the voice and noticed that this year you can use your Cox/Comcast remote to vote for you contestants. I find it interesting that you can do this on Cox but not something like YouTube TV. Will we see more interactive television as the world moves to services like YouTube TV or even advanced cable boxes from Cox and Comcast.

What am I working on?

Jim – Been working on moving files from my Windows 10 file server to the Morro Data box.  Cool to see how the cache works as it backs up to Backblaze. Remember, only have a 1TB Limit  Have moved about 500G of my 1.2 TB.

Mike – I am running now. The Apple Watch is 10x more valuable to me now that I am working out with it. GPS, Music, and calls/texts all without my phone.
