Nite Ize Taglit might save my life, CES interviews with Mira ovulation monitoring system, Spartan radiation-blocking boxer shorts, Lynky Smart Home Hub and TRAE lamps made by geeks. I also talk about my disappointment with D-Link security on the Omna Webcam and tell you about an awesome new webcam called WyzeCam that’s only $20.
Hi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at Podfeet.com, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, January 28, 2018, and this is show number 664. We’ve got another big show for you this week. I’ll tell you about how the Taglit from Nite Ize might save your life, then we have two CES interviews back to back, one for the girls and one for the boys.
We’ll talk to the makers of the Mira ovulation monitoring system and then we’ll learn about the Spartan radiation-blocking boxer shorts for men. That’s our equal opportunity portion of the show. Then I’ll tell you how D-Link has disappointed me in their lack of attention to the KRACK wireless encryption vulnerability. Back to a CES interview with our good friend Joe Dugandzic where he’ll tell us about the Lynky Smart Home Hub.
I’ll then give a full review of the $20 security camera from WyzeCam that I’m in love with. As if that were not enough for one show, we’ll talk to a company called TRAE that is making some beautifully designed lamps for your digital home.
Remember all of the interviews you hear are also videos over at podfeet.com, and our new, shiny chapter marks now include direct links to the articles so you can look at pictures or watch the videos right from your podcatcher of choice. Assuming it’s not a podcatcher from Apple of course.
Chit Chat Across the Pond
This week’s Chit Chat Across the Pond was really fun. I asked Tom Merritt of Daily Tech News Show to chat with me about how social media makes us feel. We talk about how we feel about pictures of food, how we curate Twitter, who in our family takes the photos, whether Instagram is a happy place, how we have real-life friends we only know online, how communities are awesome and how sometimes even Facebook is a place to share a deeply personal story. Check it out in the Chit Chat Across the Pond Lite feed, the full Chit Chat feed, or listen right at the link at podfeet.com/….
Patreon and Amazon
This week I got into an argument with listener Angelynn Grant about whether she rocked or not. I say she does, she says she doesn’t. I say she rocks because she upped her pledge on Patreon to support the show. She says that I rock, and I was forced to compromise and agree with both rock. In any case, if you want to rock like Angelynn, head over to podfeet.com/patreon and pledge a small weekly amount to support the creation of the Podfeet Podcasts. I hear they rock.
A few weeks ago you heard Joe Dugandzic on Chit Chat Across the Pond talking about he found a new career from his YouTube channel for Smarter Home Life and became a full-time employee of a company called Lynky with a new smart home hub. We didn’t really talk about the product itself, and I promised you that we had an interview with Joe at CES in the Lynky booth at the Sands Convention Center. Here’s that review
