This week we’ve got the last two video interviews from CSUN Persons With Disabilities Expo. We’ve got RSLSteeper from RSLSteeper.com and Autismate from Autismate.com. In Dumb Question Corner, I show Steve Mandala how to record an Internet radio stream using Audio Hijack Pro from rogueamoeba.com. In Chit Chat Across the Pond we’re going to put the nerd beanies on pretty tight. First Bart walks through how to lock all of your preference panes, then we go full speed as Bart answers Ryan Sakamoto’s question on whether email is secure on our smart phones and how to digitally sign and encrypt your email with S/MIME.
We’re going to start out with a Dumb Question that results in a review of the Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Small Adventure Kit solar charger and battery pack. Then we’ll have a quick shout out about the app Type2Phone, and a car tech review requested by Honda Bob. On Chit Chat Across the Pond we’re going to have a new guest, photographer and Mac geek Chris Marquardt from the Tips from the Top Floor Podcast, and ChrisMarquardt.com. I’m very excited to have him on the show and the assignment I gave him is to answer a dumb question from Knightwise about how to get started with a Digital SLR.
Today we have a Dumb Question from Pat Putnam about how to refresh iTunes podcasts on a schedule (I’m very proud of myself on how I solved it). We’ve got an interview with Cara Quinn from Looktel about her new apps for the blind, Breadcrumbs GPS and VoiceOver Tutorial. Then we’ve got another Dumb Question, this time from Ben on why 2x speed isn’t really 2x speed on the Downcast Podcast app. Then I’ll give you my review of the Versa Stand for iPad from the Ergo Tech Group that’s really cool. In Chit Chat Across the Pond Bart will give us his advice, to follow the money and to beware of the Underpants Gnomes.
30th Anniversary gooiness, interviews with Voiceye and Bookshare with Allison Hilliker from the CSUN Persons With Disabilities Expo, my in depth study of Google Drive vs. SkyDrive or as Steve called it, This Week in Excel. in Chit Chat Across the Pond we’re treated to Katie Floyd of the Mac Power Users podcast to talk about user groups yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
This week we’re going to talk about the ScreenCasts Online Monthly Magazine, my progress with offsite backups through CrashPlan. We have an interview from Macworld with a company called Hypercel with an iPhone 5 battery case and a cool car/wall charger, and then I’ll give you my review of the new Mophie Helium iPhone 5 battery pack. Then we’ll talk to the Connected Data folks at Macworld about their new Transporter device, and in Chit Chat Across the Pond I’ll talk to Chris Ashley of the SMR Podcast about the new Microsoft Surface Pro, new pricing on Office for Windows and Mac including the subscription service, and then you’ll get to hear Chris lose his mind when he talks about Microsoft not including some features in Skype…for Windows.
