I’ll tell you the story of how I helped a friend of mine’s father-in-law who had some recent vision loss combined with hearing loss and why I think the effort was successful. We’ve got a Dumb Question about how to figure out how big images are on iOS. We have two Tiny Tips – one on how to get your iPhone battery replaced before the end of the year at Best Buy and how to remove backgrounds from photos at remove.bg. We’ll close out the show with Steve’s annual “special” rendition of The Night Before Christmas.
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 Friday ??, 2018, and this is show number 711. We’ve got some good content this week – an article on accessibility tricks, a dumb question, two Tiny Tips, and Steve’s annual tradition of his “special” rendition of “The Night Before Christmas”.
Chit Chat Across the Pond
On Chit Chat Across the Pond this week, Dr. Maryanne Garry, also known as “Crusher of Dreams” is back. This time it’s not an intellectual discussion of higher learning. We decided to go through all of our top grammar pet peeves. It’s pedantic and annoying, because that’s who we are at heart. I hope you’ll enjoy it – look for Chit Chat Across the Pond or Chit Chat Across the Pond Lite in your Podcatcher of choice, episode 576. And of course you can always listen right at podfeet.com
I’m super excited about something Amazon has done recently. They came out with something they call OneLink. OneLink allows me to create Amazon Affiliate Links in the Amazon.com store, but if you’re from one of the countries for which I’ve created an account, the links will automatically redirect you to your country’s store. For example if you’re in the UK and you hit the amazon.com link, it will take you to amazon.co.uk. I have linked the accounts for the UK, Canada and Germany. This means when anyone from any of these countries clicks on a link for a prodcut I’ve recommended, their purchase may result in a small percentage going back to help the podcast production. Thanks to all of you who have been purchasing via Amazon on podfeet.com
