How I Save Hours per Day Keeping Up with Technology

Hewie Poplock, APCUG Vice President; Windows SIG Leader, Central Florida Computer Society

This presentation covers how Hewie uses Evernote and Feedly to find interesting tech news and save that information to be used for his SIG, blogs, and his Facebook posts. If you are frustrated when looking for an article that you read yesterday, last week, or last year, see how you can organize and save everything you might want to read or share easily, and find quickly. You will see how he sifts through hundreds or thousands of articles, find an interesting one and saves and categorizes it in a searchable format. All of his saved articles are accessible from his PC, tablets, or phone.
