Covid-19 Exposure Notifications On iPhone
The "Exposure Notifications" for Covid in my settings under "general" are turned off. Have been hearing it is a tracking tool and it makes sense after reading the "how it works"...Maybe it's turned off in the phone by default? and

Most screenshot programs including Windows' built-in Snipping Tool, Snip & Sketch have a common visual element, a user interface. QuickSnip is rather unique in this regard because it doesn't have an interface.

No fuss and very quick. Open this portable app and drag a box. When you release the mouse an image is automatically saved as a png file in your Pictures/Snips folder.

Windows 10 2009 Set To Launch Soon
Microsoft has already published a Windows 10 version 20H2 update for enterprise customers for testing ahead of its anticipated arrival in late 2020. We’re expecting the update to begin rolling out to customers next month or November, and here’s everything you need to know.

The Top Reason Your Computer is Slow
There is one most common reason computers slow down over time. The good news is, it's often within your control. One common reason a PC might be slow is that there is too much software running — much of it starting automatically when you sign in. Uninstalling software you don’t use, avoiding unnecessary installs, and possibly disabling auto-start entries are the first steps to take to regain control.

There are lots of reasons and most are because of what you have running on your computer. More RAM can help and an SSD drive even more. But this does not eliminate the programs slowing you down. RAM and an SSD will just make it appear faster.

Google Duo

Download Google Duo for free, simple, high-quality video calling on iOS and Android. Duo is the highest quality1 video calling app. It’s free, simple, and works on Android phones, iPhones, tablets, computers, and smart displays, like the Google Nest Hub Max.

In Google Duo, you’ll soon be able to screen share with whoever you’re chatting with. As Duo’s functionality stands today, you’re simply able to chat with the front- or rear-facing cameras, so sharing a screen seems great if you want to watch a movie together, or help walk your family or friends through some tricky steps in an app or game. video demo
