Power, and our lack of it
On this week’s episode, it’s all about power—yes, power—at home that often doesn’t work when the bad weather hits. But what can you do to save your beloved tech from being destroyed by surge power and fluctuating power sources?
Steven, Marc and Shaun all discuss the growing use of UPS (uninterrupted power supplies) in homes across Canada and around the world, and how these devices can make it possible to keep the lights and Internet on as well as vital communication links when the power goes out.
Steven has also been buying again, and using a recent power outage as the excuse! He’s bought a pile of new Phillips Hue bulbs, but how will the set-up experience be and will they work properly after a power cut, unlike his current IKEA bulbs?
There’s also big news in the gaming world with Forza Horizon 5 bringing in a feature they announced a while back that lets Deaf users who sign get sign language feedback from the game, and there’s also news of a new voice coming to IOS 15.4 which comes from the LGBTQ+ community.
And finally, why is Steven so upset at at the idea of a broken iMac?
