Episode 50: Real Tech for Real People–the First Year

Posted by Steve Brady On September - 11 - 2010ADD COMMENTS

It’s been a while since I linked to Real Tech for Real People, but as we wrap up our first year of doing the tech podcast I wanted to make the latest episodes available to those of you that are not necessarily regular listeners, but perhaps regulars to my blog.

Real Tech for Real People was started by Tony Pittman and me to talk about tech issues that everyone has–not just those issues that are of interest to the tech elite, or the “technorati.” Many that do podcasts lose sight of the fact that not everyone has extremely fast broadband into their homes (cable or FiOS), and those there are people that use computers but don’t want to spend time every day working and tweaking.

We try to answer the every day questions that every person has. What should you consider when buying a notebook computer? Are there differences in monitors? What are the differences between all these new phones?

And if you like our podcast, and want to show your support, please do it while giving yourself a little something as well.  We are selling coffee mugs, t-shirts, and mousepads (along with other great gifts) through CafePress.  Just visit http://cafepress.com/rtfrp and order your item today.  Show everyone that YOU are a real person!
