No matter what gadget I turn on my first mouse click or tap of the screen in the case of my iPhone and iPad is to the internet. I am an admitted information junkie, several times a day I'm checking out news sites like engadget, gizmodo, espn, fox news, the associated press, and half a dozen others. But the one thing I don't really pick up anymore is a newspaper. The idea of waiting for my paper to arrive and only getting my news once a day almost seems laughable. But with the convenience of the internet come one major frustration, advertisements and other junk clutter up the screen making reading an article online less than ideal. In this weeks Tech Tip I'm going to share with you how I combat that annoyance and make the "paperless" news experience that much sweeter.
I like to think of myself as a "Tech Filter". Your coffee filter ensures that you don't get coffee grinds in your mouth when you drink your morning cup of joe, your oil filter keeps your car from getting junk into your engine etc. As a tech filter I make sure that you get your fill of the good stuff from the web without all the junk. I share my discoveries each week in a 3-5 minute video podcast at www.TechTipTuesday.com
