ZOOM Classic & Pandemic

Christy, Joe, and callers talk about backup, classic ZOOM, three parallel lines (or the “hamburger” icon), and ZOOM 2021, with a side trip to Amazon ratings. (Which we got wrong.)

 

  1. Ozzie with a different ZOOM issue…NOT dealing with an online meeting!
      
  2. Sue wants a document camera for ZOOM meetings.  

 Whoops. Turns out the number of reviews is no longer a good metric for trustworthiness. It fact the opposite! See CNBC report (11:50) & Fakespot at left. We’ll revisit.
