TechFirst #28: Shocker, Coronavirus has us using phones for … actually calling people

phone audio voice

I don’t always do an interview for my TechFirst video and audio podcasts. Here’s a quick TechFirst for my recent post at Forbes: We Are Using Our Phones As … Phones Again: 36% Jump During Shutdown.

This one is about how the COVID-19 quarantine or shutdown is impacting how we use smartphones. Short version: voice is back, baby!


This is a kind of a new thing for me (doing video and audio versions of my Forbes columns). Let me know if you think it works! (Or, if it doesn’t!) Ping me on Twitter; I’d love to hear from you.
