What’s up with Jim and Chris – the Geeks

July was a stay-at-home month
We celebrated July 4 with an all-American cookout of hot dogs and hamburgers. Our guests were vegan so they brought their own Portobello mushrooms and rice. We both enjoyed some fine wine!


We delivered 5 separate classes in July! You can see all classes from past months on our Classes
. We call it a “Class” when we deliver a 1-2 hour seminar to a group on a desired topic such as Using Google Photos, Editing Photos with Snapseed, and Map-making with Google My Maps. The web page for each class includes a slide show, several videos and sometimes a written handout. If the class was delivered over Zoom, we may also have the recording of the whole class. These classes are for our premium members, although we leave them open to the
public for the first couple of weeks.
    As usual, we have an eclectic mix of smartphone and technology tips for you.
    1. What happens to your digital assets when you die?
    2. Don’t just take photos, make them better with Snapseed
    3. Google Fi cellular service
    4. Google Photos Q&A
    5. Blast from the past – Google awarded Chris with a cape this year, but she’s been waiting for it since 1998!

    What happens to all of your digital assets when you die?


    You’ve met with your lawyer and set up a Will and Power of Attorney, but that won’t help your executor when they need the password to your Google account. Have you thought about what should be done with your account? Should it be deleted? Maybe you have some YouTube videos that you want to continue on after you’re gone.
    In that case you want your Google account to remain active.

    Don’t just take a picture, make a better picture with Snapseed


    Invariably, when someone looks at one of my photos and says, “Wow!” it means they’re looking at a photo that I tweaked using Snapseed. It’s free, it’s easy, you should try it.
