#TechTuesday – Fight Flu By Keeping Your Gadgets Clean
February 6, 2018 – WTAM Newsradio with Bill Wills and Derek Meister.
You got your flu shot, and you heed the warnings about washing your hands and covering your mouth. But what about that germ holder you touch a thousand times a day?
Yes, it’s your cellphone (and other tech devices, for that matter).
Keep in mind that antibacterial wipes & disinfectants are often abrasive to your phone screen. Consider using a small spray bottle filled half with water and half 70% isopropyl alcohol as a good, cheap screen cleaner. Spray it onto a microfiber cloth and not directly onto your screen.

#TechTuesday – Better Netflix Streaming
Netflix is great for watching streaming content, but finding what to watch may not always be easy. A new website is looking to change that.

The financial news is buzzing with how Netflix added 8.33 million new streaming customers this last quarter, and has crossed the $100 billion market cap because of it.
As long time users know, while the service is great, but finding something to watch may not be. A new website, Flixable.com, is looking to solve that by being a very simple and straight-forward Netflix search engine.
When you open the site on your computer, tablet, or smartphone, you’re greeted with the latest additions to Netflix (sorted by newest to oldest), with an easy-to-read ratings tab on the photos.
It’s even separated by movies and TV shows, with controls to help you narrow down your choices quickly. Click on the title you want, and it’ll take you to the streaming page.
Other tabs include “Popular Titles”, “Netflix Originals” and “Leaving”. That last one is important to many, because it helps you catch something you’ve been meaning to watch before it’s not longer available, information that’s not easy to find on Netflix.com.
What if you still can’t find anything to watch? Or what you want to watch isn’t showing up on Netflix?
Bookmark JustWatch.com to search all the popular streaming services for whatever title you’re looking for and find all the streaming, rental, and purchasing options available to you.
