Allister Jenks stands in for a vacationing Allison Sheridan. We have a review of Paintcode, a story of using the Apple Watch to track health in ways other than the Activity app, Allister’s own health app Stretch Timer, two interviews from CES with We.Stream and Bellus3D, some security tips with Cyber Essentials, and a fun casual iOS game, Rings.

Hi, this is Allister Jenks standing in for Allison Sheridan on the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is arguably Sunday, March 11, 2018, and this is show number 670.

Well, Allison and Steve are off celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary. That’s quite an accomplishment and I’d like to offer my personal congratulations to you both. But, while those two are off enjoying themselves in the streets of Paris, there is work to be done… a record to keep clean… the 670th NosillaCast must go on! We’ve got developer utilities, health tracking, security, mobile wifi, face scanning, and gaming to cover, so let’s get going.

CES 2018: We.Stream Secure Mobile WiFi Hotspot

As I was watching the video of this interview I kept looking for the catch. There had to be something about this product and service that would make me go “ahhh, there it is.” But there wasn’t. It’s so good I wish I had reason to travel a lot!

CES 2018: Bellus3D Face Scanning

If you haven’t seen the video version of this review, head on over to and check it out. The resulting model is eerily accurate! I’m not quite sure what real purposes this kind of technology could be put to for the average consumer, but I expect they’ll find use in some very specific markets – perhaps game franchises that are based on real sports.

That’s going to wind things up for this week. Bart will be along next week to hold the fort, so if you have any contributions for him you can email them to [email protected]. Also, don’t forget to send in your Dumb Questions, comments and suggestions by emailing Allison at [email protected], and follow her on Twitter @podfeet. You can find everything I do online at and follow me on Twitter @zkarj. Finally, remember, everything good starts with,,,!  And if you want to join in the fun of the live show, head on over to on Sunday nights at 5pm Pacific Time two weeks from now and join the friendly and enthusiastic NosillaCastaways.   Thanks for listening, and stay subscribed.

    Hmm… Rings does seem interesting. I’m not a hardcore gamer either (do relax, and play Minecraft sometimes) but rings seems like something I might wanna check out. I am making a recording for NC #671 right now, you will probably hear it.

    I try a fair number of casual games and most don’t stick for long – especially not free ones. But Rings ticks the boxes for me. You have nothing to lose, except perhaps some time, so give it a whirl. BTW, my new high score is now 650! I’ve made over 600 one other time but usually collapse around 400 now.
