A recent trip to Hawaii shows that there is still plenty of room for computing innovation — and better help on the Web.

A new WS column on general computing
As we hope most Windows Secrets subscribers now know, our newsletter recently became part of Penton, a rapidly growing media company that addresses a wide range of markets such as technology, agriculture, transportation, and more. This change will undoubtedly be a good thing for Windows Secrets. The design and format haven’t changed in many years, and an upgrade is overdue.
With this acquisition, there will be some changes in the newsletter, designed to make our information even more useful and timely. One of those changes will be a regular column by yours truly, the editor of Windows Secrets. There will be no set theme, topic, agenda, or particular rant for the column — which, for want of an acutely clever label, I simply call Field Notes.
The title reflects over 30 years of using and covering technology every day. That experience is not limited to Windows; I have deep appreciation and interest in all technology. (For example, I hope to find some time to explore drone photography.) Still, I’ll try to keep the topics relevant and interesting to most PC users.
I invite your feedback in the Windows Secrets Lounge on topics to consider and useful information you’d like to see in the column — and useful changes you’d like to see in the newsletter. Let’s keep it constructive. (Use the link at the bottom of the column.) To kick things off, here are two recent observations.

As you know, the editors of Windows Secrets took a week off at the end of April. My time off was spent visiting my son in Hawaii. (What Seattleite could resist an excuse to travel to somewhere warm and sunny?)
