Tech Show 'n Tell

Ten chamber members got together on Thursday, April 14th at the Avanti’s Dome for free coffee and “show and tell.”  This was the second month for this informal gathering.  Some of the participants were there to listen, while others shared and demonstrated new technologies, apps, or gadgets they use to be more efficient and effective at work.

Last month we discussed QR Codes and accepting credit card payments with your smart phone.  This month we discussed downloading e-books from the Pekin Public Library, Quixey (a search engine for apps), Seize the Deal and Groupon advertising opportunities, some of the new phones and tablets and $G networks that are available or coming soon to Verizon Wireless and Sprint Wireless Express, Screencast-o-matic (a free tool to make simple online screen-shot tutorials) and, Animoto (a free tool to make and share slide shows with music and voice-overs).

The next Tech Show ‘n Tell will be Thursday, May 12th at 7:30 am the Avanti’s Dome.  Join us and share your tech tips.
