Jim and Chris Guld, the Geeks on Tour.  They are Geeks who will teach about really using your smart mobile technology.  They call themselves “0218161704Geeks” but they have the ability to explain even complex technology in very plain, easy to understand language.  They demonstrate why Smart Phones are much more useful than regular phones.

You will learn how they use Smart Phones and Tablets and the many things they can do to enhance your life.  The seminar is not system specific.  Demonstrations use both Android and Apple devices.  They are going to discuss how to get the most usage from your smart mobile devices, including both phones and tablets, and they will differentiate between the capabilities of iOS operating system-based devices (Apple) and Android.

Their presentation will include the idiosyncrasies of the user interfaces, supported apps, internet usage, camera capability and mobile payment systems, among other things.  They will also discuss technological advances for these products which are on the horizon.  At the conclusion, the speakers will be available to answer your questions.
