NC #628 Dumb Question Corner, B&H Photo, GoPro Karma Drone, Hunting Black Bars of Doom

Chit Chat Across the Pond Lite and Programming By Stealth are both searchable now in iTunes, the Apple Podcasts app, along with Downcast, Pocketcasts and Overcast. I put out a call for help – I need recorded reviews some time next week for the following week’s show because we’re going on yet another vacation. Videos are now a button on the podfeet.com home page so you can get to them more easily and I explain how Helma helped me make that happen. In Dumb Question Corner I’ll answer Rod Simmons’s boss’s question about how to mark up emails on an iPad Pro. We’ve got two more NAB 2017 interviews: we’ll talk to B&H about their mobile microphones, and GoPro about their new Karma Drone. I’ll walk you through all of the intricacies of tech goodness in how I think I’ve finally rid podfeet.com of the Black Bars of Doom (trademark Donald Burr).

We have a huge show today. Steve’s put out two more video interviews from NAB in Las Vegas, I’ve got a pretty big announcement about Chit Chat Across the Pond, and we’ve got another giant Security Bits with Bart Busschots.

We’ll talk about a remote code execution built in Intel CPUs, Bart will explain what can go wrong with two-factor authentication through SMS, we’ll cover the Google Docs phishing worm and how Google could have prevented it, we’ll learn about how the beloved Handbrake servers got hacked causing distribution of malware, and as if that isn’t enough we’ll talk about the WannaCry worm that has indiscriminately taken down networks across the globe.
