  • Please, I’m retired, but still like to be part of the human commerce we all share, but quarantined has challenged me with my lack of technical information allowing me to better understand my computer and what I can actually do with it…
    ….I now use my stand alone desk top computer for my mornings going to a few different websites for news of the USA and the world.
    …I also have a business where we, when available, rehabilitate older houses into 2020 updated, electrical, plumbing, and heating issues.
    ….I also have an iPhone that is not connected to my computer…..well, because I don’t know how to connect and am a bit concerned because I don’t want to lose any data I may have stored on them if they have a serious virus….
    ….As you can see I am ignorant of the need for these items, but I would like to become more informed so as to understand this advancing technology.
