Everybody’s Talking At Me

at google cropToday’s technology allows us unprecedented access to information, news, music and video content. We have the ability to watch a movie on one device, pause, and start watching it again on another device—even in another part of the world. Streaming devices, such as AppleTV and Roku, allow us to move away from the computer monitor and view the videos on our regular television screens and in the comfort of our favorite chair.

This week I discovered something that has been around for awhile: Talks at Google. The conversations last from 30—60 minutes and it is an opportunity to see another side of the person behind the Personality.

“The Talks at Google program brings authors, musicians, innovators, and speakers of all stripes to Google for talks centering on their recently published books and capturing the popular and intellectual zeitgeist of the day.” —YouTube

If you are a documentary junkie like me, it is a wonderful time to be alive and have access to this vast medium.

Here’s How

Set up a subscription to Talks at Google online and watch the videos through the YouTube channel on your Smart TV/Streaming device. The same thing can be done for TED Talks, Vimeo, or Crackle, etc.

      It is worth the learning curve. These days we are streaming more shows than we are recording on a DVR. Ω

          A visit to the Apple store or some online research on apple.com will provide you with plenty of helpful how-to information. Ω
