My buddy Rich DeMuro is on a mission to help everyday people understand technology and get the most out of their gadgets and apps (of which there are of course a ton that are travel-related). Rich is the tech reporter for KTLA-TV 5 in Los Angeles and appears on the #1-rated KTLA Morning News. I met him when he guest-hosted Leo Laporte’s The Tech Guy radio show. He also interviewed me for KTLA a few months ago (here’s the segment).
Rich just came out with a new book that I think will help travelers with iPhones called “101 Handy Tech Tips for the iPhone.” Here’s an excerpt of the Amazon description: “Tech Reporter Rich DeMuro has presented TV segments on a variety of tech topics for over a decade and has fielded many emails from everyday folks struggling to understand their devices. Their stories have inspired this collection of tips designed to make you feel in control of your phone and not the other way around. Anyone can follow the steps, understand the concepts and learn. There’s no complex language and the tips will delight beginners and impress even the most expert user. Updated, simplified and revised for iOS 12 with tips on the latest additions to the software including Screen Time, Group FaceTime, Memoji, Do Not Disturb during Bedtime, Siri Shortcuts and more.
“Some of the things you’ll learn? From the basics, like How to Take a Screenshot (tip #20) to the advanced, like How to Change the Brightness of the Flashlight (tip #36). Did you know your iPhone has a built-in Document Scanner (tip #87) or a magnifying glass (tip #33)? Learn how to use the new virtual measuring tape built into the latest iPhones (tip #11), cancel a subscription (tip #23) or share apps and movies you’ve paid for with other household family members (tips #76 and #77).”
Grab it: Grab “101 Handy Tech Tips for the iPhone” by Rich DeMuro on Amazon for $18.99 (paperback) and $9.99 (Kindle).
