Drake - Bad Choice-Good Choice - Linux vs Windows macOS ChromeOS

Linux Doesn’t Suck – Here’s Why Even Normies Should Use It

Linux has long been viewed as a science fair project for nerds. We explain why Linux doesn’t suck and why it’s now usable even for normies. Some of the items discussed: Issues with Windows, ease of use, performance (efficient use of resources), hardware support, application support, OS licensing, concerns about Windows/macOS/ChromeOS evolving into Orwellian adware. These other operating systems have their place, but we believe Linux should be used for personal and sensitive computing. Visit us at biggerinsights.com to request a consultation or read our blog.

Email is Insecure – Stop Using it for Sensitive Communications

Email is the primary means of sending messages and documents for many people. Unfortunately, email was never designed to be private or secure. Over time, we’ve developed several tools and techniques to help make it more secure. But at the end of the day, no matter how uncomfortable it makes us feel, email is inherently insecure. Just ask the US military. Millions of military emails are going to Mali (.ml TLD) rather than the military (.mil domain) due to mundane typos. We go into detail about why email is insecure and go over real-world and personal examples. Visit us at biggerinsights.com to request a consultation or read our blog.

What Does it Mean to be Able to Afford Something?

Most everyone will agree that you shouldn’t buy things that you can’t afford, yet so many do. Why is that? It seems to us that one of the reasons for this is because many don’t know what it means to be able to afford something. Spoiler alert – it doesn’t mean you have enough money in the bank or have just enough income to cover it. In this episode, we’re going to give you some things to think about when you’re doing your budgeting, financial planning, or considering making a large purchase like a home, car, wedding, etc. Visit us at biggerinsights.com to request a consultation or read our blog.

Cybersecurity - Privacy and Security - Virtual Private Network (VPN)

Are Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) Useless Honeypot Scams?

You may have heard others in the privacy and security community call virtual private networks (VPNs) “useless”, “scams”, or “honeypots”, but is this actually the case? There are certainly a lot of sketchy VPNs and creators who shill them, but does that invalidate the thesis for using a VPN? We discuss this issue as well as offer a few tips for using VPNs and Tor to protect your privacy. Visit us at biggerinsights.com to request a consultation or read our blog.

Google Domains Shutting Down - Google Selling Google Domains Accounts to Squarespace

Google Domains Sale to Squarespace – Don’t Rely on Google

Google Domains is fresh out of beta and now being sold to Squarespace. You read that correctly – Google Domains is joining the Google graveyard. RIP. This deal, and how Google is handling it, is unethical and really grinds our gears. As of the time of producing this episode, Google has yet to inform us of this transaction – we had to find out about it on Twitter. However, this is a blessing in disguise, as this was the final nail in the coffin that was the last remaining shred of trust we had in Google. This was the nudge we needed to move our business to providers that actually respect their paying customers. If you rely on Google, you should, at a minimum, have a contingency plan in case they either shut down services you’re relying on or shut you down for some dubious reason.
