Tech Talk: An Introduction

Hello, and welcome to Tech Talk! I am your host, Bill Kentner.

Technology is everywhere, from our homes and automobiles, to our workplaces. From our schools and restaurants, to our movies. From bed, to bath, and beyond -- technology is where we are and where we want to be. I will be here in an ongoing effort to help you make your way through the tech world with the least bumps, bruises, and viruses.

In Tech Talk, we will discuss the latest tech news, views, and product reviews. In addition, I will offer tech tips, secrets, and the best in tools. Finally, Tech Talk will also be here to answer viewer submitted questions.

So we’ve covered the tech part, but why me? I come to this as an IT professional with over 20 years of experience. I am the founder of CompuDoc Pro located online at: I have handled the IT needs of large multiple site corporations, small businesses, and home users. I am the person many people in our area connect with when they have a tech question. No matter if they are looking for a new desktop, laptop, or perhaps looking to buy someone a hot new tech device, I am the guy who gets all those questions and more, and I do my best to answer each one.

No matter where you fall in the world of tech, seasoned pro or a total newbie, I welcome you to Tech Talk. If you have a question, you can email me at

As we begin, here a few simple reminders:

  • No matter how official it looks, your bank does not need you to click on that link that goes to South Korea to verify your account information.
  • No, no one has gotten rich helping all those poor people in Nigeria with their millions in US currencies stuck in a local bank.
  • If you continue to use passwords like: “password”, “12345678”, “Open Sesame”, “I love you”, or your phone number, yes, you will sooner or later regret it. It is embarrassing how many really vital and important things are protected by passwords a trained monkey could guess. 

Now, go change your passwords and I will see you again soon.

This is Bill Kentner and you’ve just had your first Tech Talk.
