Hello loyal listeners and new binge listening recruits!  This week Perek gives us a little background and explanation of music streaming services, with a specific focus on Spotify.  There is so much controversy in recent days/months/years about where the money goes and what the “right” model of music distribution should be.  Hopefully this episode gives you at least a little bit of info to think about.  Let us know what you think!  email us at goodguys@goodguystoknow.com or shoot us a note on Facebook or Twitter!  Thanks for listening!

Hey everyone.  This week the Good Guys are still decompressing from their golf trip to the desert.  Last minute topic, plus last minute challenge, plus last minute segments, plus last minute internet issues equals fun times for all!  Maybe this week Perek’s chore to complete will be to get Geo some decent internet so it doesn’t ruin the entire show.  Thanks for listening!!

Quick!  Your house is flooding – get outta there!  Phew, that was close.  Where are all your baby pictures?  Where are your wedding photos?  Where is that book you started to write?  I think you get my point, data backup is something that we often don’t think about until it’s too late.  There are many methods of data backup – some good, others bad.  Together they can be part of a bigger strategy to help keep you covered.  Matthew Mombrea wrote a great article that covers most of the stuff we talk about in this episode.  You can read the article here:  http://www.itworld.com/article/2832708/consumerization/how-to-backup-files-on-your-computer—part-1–the-basics.html

 

Thanks for listening – and upgrade yourself to the next level of data backup, whatever level that may be!
