In this little section, we’d like to talk about the tech that’s accepting us through the pandemic. This week, let’s talk about Zoom.

I always forget when I have a affair coming up, so whenever I get the 10-minute-reminder on my phone a activity of burning panic sets in. My all-overs shoots through the roof and I’m affirmed to start the call frazzled.

This isn’t my fault.

I can’t bethink the last time I tried to affix to a affair and article didn’t go wrong. Here’s a list of the problems I’ve had in the last 10 or so affairs I’ve taken via Zoom, Meet, phone call, or Slack:

  • Zoom (or my phone) inexplicably absitively I needed to be in “driving mode” while hosting a meeting, so we lost video and I had to use push-to-talk the entire time.
  • Meet pumped apostle audio through the phone’s main apostle but used the microphone in my earbuds, thus I could barely hear and had to stop using video so I could hold the phone my ear.
  • I spent 15 account trying to call a US number from Mexico to no avail before it worked (no clue why).
  • Unable to take/make calls in Slack across two desktops and a laptop, but mobile works fine.

Every bit of software has its troubles and tribulations, but I’ve been accepting a ration of it lately.

Part of my botheration is that I don’t have a simple technology band-aid for my office. I review a lot of articles so I’m consistently alteration software and I seldom use the same device for more than a few days or weeks.

Where most people work out the kinks after the 3rd or 4th meeting, my setup changes on a weekly basis. It’s a bit ironic, as a technology announcer you might expect me to have a sweet setup that works like a finely-tuned machine. Instead, I live mired in a hodge-podge of technology that usually gets swapped out the moment I figure out how to work it.

So, with that in mind, now you know why technology journos (or maybe just me) always seem to spend the first five account of a affair aural like the Verizon guy: “Can you hear me now?”

Adios!

We’ll be back next Tuesday. And every Tuesday after that until the communicable ends. Because we’re all in this together.
