It’s a new year and a new Pixel Power Podcast. What’s new? For one, I set a timer for 20 minutes and do my best to stick to it. Get it? 20 for 2020? There’s also a new web site for the podcast at the original URL: https://www.pixelpowerpodcast.com. The new look comes from the website’s move from Google Sites to GitHub pages. The design is minimal but more functional and easier to maintain.
Some things stay the same. You will still find a main topic (in this episode I discuss pixel and Google related holiday gifts given and received), the Addendum segment where I talk about living a pixel-powered life, and the same quality show notes you’ve come to expect. It’s now in a more compact version. I hope you like the changes. Be sure to use the feedback options (described at the bottom of the page) to let me know what you think.
“Hey Google, set timer for 20 minutes.”
Welcome to 2020 and a new version of the Pixel Power Podcast. So what’s new?

More multimedia features such as screencasts. As a matter of fact, I produced a multi-camera video on YouTube that shares the content of the Elegoo Arduino Mega Starter Kit for a course I am teaching. Here’s an associated blog post.
There was a whole lot of Google gift this past Christmas.
Google Hub Max - 10 inch HD screen, massive stereo sound upgrade with 3 inch sub, duo camera, nest cam, face match with pesonalized home screen. Replaced a Lenovo Smart Display which went to my home office to replace a Google Home Hub that went to my work office.
Lenovo Alarm Clock - Stylish gift for wife to replace an echo Dot. Focus on clock features but includes Google Assistant.
Odds, ends, and living a pixel-powered life.
Google sending maps timeline to users and I spent my entire year in the east from Toronoto to Florida. Here’s mine:
Lepow 15.6 Inch Full HD 1080P USB Type-C Computer Display - $70 off during Black Friday and has changed the way I work and play when traveling or at the coffee shop.
I’m an ADA BOX subscriber and received my first box, 0014, before Christmas. I look forward to playing with the included Circuit Playground Bluefruit - Bluetooth Low Energy
