Recently a visitor to “Tech News for You” contacted me (Rick) and submitted information about a weather site and app, called “Windy.com“, that they highly recommended. I took a look at this and found that the “Windy.com” app and web site as a new find for me and that it is everything the reader stated. Thank you to “Carmicheals” for this submission.



To help get you to the weather site and to the app, here is what the reader had to say:

Newsprompt Brings You Top Stories From Around The World

Newsprompt is a news aggregation service that I happened across that I think is a keeper. I could not find much information on this service, but you can either go directly to the site or you can set it up through the Google Chrome store as a “new tab” browser extension. In my case I saved the site as a bookmark. There appears to be no sign-in required; however, you can customize what news you would like to see. I am assuming the customization settings are maintained through your browser settings (i.e. cookies). Anyhow, good option for getting the news…

Newsprompt brings to you top stories from around the world and personalized recommendations just for you right in your new tab. Newsprompt delivers highly personalized content without you having to change any settings or customization. From the sports team you follow or the celebrity you love or the company that interests you, get the latest updates for all the stuff that you care about.

Learn About “MiniTool MovieMaker Free for Windows 10” @ I Love Free Software

One of my favorite software related sites is “I Love Free Software”. I noticed a post that popped up in their feed, featuring a FREE software product, called “MiniTool Movie Maker Free for Windows.” There were two things about their post that caught my attention. One, I have been looking for movie maker (video editing) software; and Two, (after digging further) the developer “MiniTool” is the software developer of the excellent “MiniTool Partition Manager“, even though the “MiniTool” site makes no mention of that. The name and logo immediately jumped out at me and after some further research, I discovered that both products are at the same mailing address. Anyhow, the developer is a reputable software developer and “MiniTool Movie Maker Free for Windows” I will definitely be installing. Learn about and how you can get this software by clicking on the source link below.

MiniTool MovieMaker is a free software for Windows 10, which lets you create amazing quality movies using photos, videos, and music from your device.

Ask A Tech Teacher About Microsoft Sway

One of my favorite educational sites is “Ask A Tech Teacher“. If you have kids, I strongly recommend that you and your kids visit this site on a regular basis; and, if you are a kid like me (who is 60 years old), this site is a “must visit” site. You will learn something new every day…

For example, today I learned about “What is Microsoft Sway?”.

Sway is part of Office 365 Education and is the newest alternative to its popular PowerPoint slideshow program. Using the Sway canvas, students select a theme and then add their notes and research. Sway organizes the content, suggests images and even data, and then helps students to quickly arrange everything into a comprehensive and fully-fleshed project. If the selected theme doesn’t work, students simply click “remix” and get a different look. More advanced users can edit the pieces to fit particular colors and interests. When everything’s perfect, it can be shared, embedded, and published… READ MORE
