NC #948 Beta Cautionary Tale, How I Test Apps with VoiceOver, Security Bits

Hi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, July 9, 2023, and this is show number 948.

It’s that time of year again, it’s time for me to ask you to step up and help create content so I can take a couple of little trips. This coming week is our grandson Forbes’s birthday and I’ve got a video due to Don, which means it’s going to be super tight to get content together. Early submissions will most likely make the next show if you can help me out.

Two weeks from now is Macstock, and we’ll be out of town from July 20-24. I’m not sure if I can pull off the show that week before Sunday unless I get a lot of help from folks. I’m quite likely to have to slip the show till Tuesday and shove a mic in peoples’ faces during Macstock to get content. Might be fun though!

Then we’re going to Mammoth Lakes for a week with Lindsay and her family August 6-12th!

So if you have something right quick for me, I can use it. If you have something in a week, I can use it. I you have something the week after that, I can use it! Dust off those mics, look around at all the gadgets and software you have on your desk and do a review! Keep the 18-year streak alive! You can send them to me at [email protected]

It means so much to me that people are willing to help support the show in this way. Max and Adam, you absolutely rock.
