It’s Christmas Day but there’s a fresh NosillaCast anyway – no best of show for us. Allister Jenks joins us to talk about the photo manipulation app Primitive for Mac from primitive.lol/…. I’ll tell you the tragic story of how Melissa lost her father’s voicemails and our joint discovery of how to get them back. I’ll give you my review of the Apple AirPods and we’ll talk about whether Bluetooth on them is fiddly, how they fit, and usability with Siri. Steve will jump in to talk about music playback quality (since that’s not my strong suit. Rush Sherman tells us about how he and I worked out a way to help him support the podcast through Patreon at a price his family could afford. Bart Busschots joins us for Security Bits.
You know I do the podcast for the love of talking about tech. I get a big kick out of helping people and one of the ways I do that is with the tutorials I post on podfeet.com. I don’t know how many people find them or get value from them. I do get comments on many of them, especially the tutorial I did on how to fix the AppleTV problem when it says it will take 7 hours to play rented movies. That one has evidently saved marriages and brought peace and harmony to many homes.
But every once in a while there’s a story that makes all the work worth while.
