Jarrod over at HeyDingus has been a little busy lately. I’ve missed his “7 Things This week” segment lately. So, I’m doing what any good best friend would do, and I’ve asked to guest post. So here we are, as my first true post on USB, I’m giving it a whirl. For those who aren’t familiar, “7 Things” is a weekly collection of 7 things Jarrod finds interesting. Sometimes themed, sometimes not. Here’s what I found interesting in the past week:

  1. I hate that this is a necessary thing in our society, but as an IT coordinator I am glad tools for school safety are within reach of even the smallest schools. The K-12 District I serve has been featured as a case study by Motorola. This project is ongoing and ever evolving! [πŸ”— Motorola Solutions Blog ]

  2. Ever think about your last meal? Meghan Trainor talks last meals with Josh on a segment of my favorite channel: [πŸ”— Mythical Kitchen // youtube.com ]

  3. Talking Tech and AI with Tim Cook. No summary needed. [πŸ”— Marques Brownlee // youtube.com ]

  4. I’m not much of a gaming guy, but it sure was neat to see some of my favorite old Mac systems running Minecraft in this video. [πŸ”— Action Retro // youtube.com ]

  5. This one will hit a small niche in this audience, but I love the community that has been built around the K12 Tech Talk podcast that has evolved into a forum for Technology Professionals working in K-12 Education to network and problem-solve together. [πŸ”— K12TechPro ]

  6. Just a shameless plug for the β€œ10 Best Days of Summer” and an organization for which I volunteer - if you’re in Michigan July 11-20 come check it out! [πŸ”— Ionia Free Fair ]

  7. What will AI mean for HomePod? This article covers a lot of what I was thinking about it… [πŸ”— 9to5Mac]
