As we all hunker down hiding from the Covid virus we discuss what we are doing to cope with this epidemic.
First Mike talks about paying more attention to his health and watching his weight. Then they all talk about ordering food with apps, the future of bill paying, entertainment options for all you shut ins and teleworking.
For our picks Elisa is thinking about exercise while social distancing with Peloton Bike. Melissa want to be comfortable while working so she went with the Altwork Station. Mike just wants to forget what going so he going to play games on his Commercial Grade Cocktail Arcade Machine.
DON’T PANIC!!! It’s just Mike & Melissa this week. Elisa is fine, she’s just away for this show. With the Coronavirus starting to ramp up we talk about measures and precautions to deal with the possible pandemic. And one of the best things you can do in a situation such as this is to laugh or the stress will kill you. First we start by talking about the Spotify playlist we created called “Quarantine“. We also discuss a little about making playlists and scrobbling.
With spring just around the corner (hopefully) everyone’s attentions turn to travel and vacations. First Elisa offers some advice on cruises and has a website to compare different cruise companies. Next Melissa is planning a school trip for her son and has tips on getting things ready and help for money handling. Finally Mike want to traverse this great land and has a trip planner and a booking app to offer.
This week the gang is all here and we are ready to talk books. We compare the different services for buying and renting e-books and audio books. We also discuss loans vs recommendations. Then we move on to talk about goodreads to get reviews and recommendations from other people.
Having survived Black Friday, the gang regales each other with their hard-fought online purchases and price victories. Then Elisa tells us her tale of woe and —ultimately success— of purchasing her father’s new iMac and her own new MacBook Pro 16-inch. What an adventure!
