What Do You Think About Skype?
Nowadays we are in situation where we should participate in social distancing and that's leads us to relay on Social Media ,Instance Messages and other means to do remote communication. Skype is great program to communicate remotely and if both parties have a device which Skype could be installed on it, they could have a Video and Voice call communication. Skype is also good if you just want to have quick chat with someone who doesn't have Skype and you could send invitation link and they could join the chat using browser without installing Skype. In worse case, when the other party doesn't have Smart Phone, Internet Connection or there is other issue, you could purchase Skype credit and call Skype to Landline or Cellphone which is available for most places around the world. I am Wondering, are you using Skype? Why? Why not? If you are using different technology, please name it and tell us why you are using it?

VPN or not to VPN
I asked the question What is VPN , should I have one?, which is the best, what can it do for me? I ask for your help and advice on this question. I like to watch American tv channels from the UK via apps downloaded on the Microsoft store however some apps have been blocked by SucriFirewall website stating blocked due to location issuses. It was suggested that by having a VPN subscription my address would be disguised allowing me to watch the apps without problems. I would like to know even if this did not solve my problem is it still worth having and using a VPN subscription. thanks to anyone who comments.
Online classes for kids: knowledge gained > innocence lost?
Should kids have to care about login, password, account, zoom, TEAMS? I started thinking about this when a friend of mine was describing her "New Normal" few months ago - How she had to help her kids figure out school-supplied-equipments, online classrooms, accounts, logging in, figuring out passwords, online submission... Online learning or any kind of learning is great, but what's the right age to start. What's the right taxonomy, verbiage for kids? What do you think? I also wonder if anyone at Microsoft is thinking about this while designing their products. Disclaimer: I don't have kids (thank god!!).
