Thanks to our fabulous contributors, we’ve got a full-length show this week. We’ll start with the last audio interview from NAB, this time with Audio-Technica about their microphones and headphones (we use both!). Then I have a Tiny Tip about how to fix a problem with multiple monitors on your Mac. I’m trying to be like all of the other cool kids, so I’ve done GDPR work on Podfeet just because it’s the right thing to do. Sandy Foster brings us a review of an app called Electric Quilt. I’ll tell you how underwhelming it was to attempt to rent an electric bike via Explore Bike Share. Joe Dugandzic tells us about a new voice assistant-capable lightswitch from ecobee called the Switch+. Finally, George from Tulsa tells us about an incredibly inexpensive computer he recommends called a NUC running Linux.
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 Tuesday, May 29, 2018, and this is show number 681. Thanks for waiting for us to get back from Memphis for the holiday weekend.
Chit Chat Across the Pond
The most recent Chit Chat Across the Pond was an interview with a young woman named Lupita Salazar. Lupita is a hard-core geek with a love of tech that’s so deep she switched to Android for a year just to learn everything about it. Lupita is also blind. She talks in the interview about the tech she uses, but also about how unfortunate it is that we don’t insist on Braille literacy for the blind as children. It’s a fascinating interview with a delightful person. You can check it out at CCATP #548 – Lupita Salazar on Braille Literacy and Tech in your podcatcher of choice under Chit Chat Across the Pond or Chit Chat Across the Pond Lite.

Patreon and Amazon
Speaking of cool kids, do you want to be awesome like Brad Cadle? Brad evidently finds joy out of the Podfeet Podcasts, so he went to podfeet.com/patreon and pledged a weekly dollar amount to help support the production of the shows. While I do this for the love of the subject, it does help to pay for hosting and servers and software and hardware that Steve and I use to produce the show. If you find value and would like to help out, please check out the Patreon model and see if it’s right for you and your family.
