We celebrate the 500th episode of Chit Chat Across the Pond with Bart Busschots so I do a little retrospective on the origin of the show. Steve and I will be in the live chat room during the Apple announcement on September 12th at podfeet.com/live, so we hope you’ll join us. I’ve got a review of Galileo Offline Maps and one of the TechMatte MagGrip phone car mount.

NC #642 B2 Storage from Backblaze, Capturing a Total Eclipse, iPhone Forerunners, Parallels Toolbox

In what can only be considered prescient, Allister Jenks has a review of Backblaze’s B2 log-term storage solutions right as CrashPlan bails on home customers. I’ll walk you through how Steve managed to capture video and create an awesome photo of the total solar eclipse, while still enjoying the experience with minimal camera fiddling. Ryan Winkler joins us for the first time about two products I’ve recommended, Webcam Settings and the ATR2100 microphone. Allister comes back in with a talk on the Forerunners of the iPhone. Then I do an extensive review of all of the tools in the fantastic Parallels Toolbox.

Allister Jenks has created new and improved Podfeet stickers for iMessage. I’ll tell you how obsessed I’ve become with automation from AppleScript to Workflow to Keyboard Maestro.

NC #640 Nightshift and Invert Colors, CMD-D Conference, Split Screen on iPad for Books

In this week’s show I start by playing you a VERY silly recording from Joe Dugandzic of smarterhomelife.com. Then I’ll read you a rant by Chris Eschweiler about Night Shift and Invert Colors and I’ll give him some good news. After that I’ll regale you with tales of adventure about the CMD-D Conference hosted by Sal Soghoian. It was a blast and I can’t wait to do more automation. Then I’ll play you a question from Knightwise of knightwise.com about how to use both a mind mapping app and his book reading app in split screen.

NC #630 PowerBeats3 vs Jabra Sport Headphones, Yi 4K+ Action Camera, Sleep Tracking is Dumb, Anker USB Charger, Ikea Smart Lighting, Plantronics Headset, Is it Safe to Click a Link?

Steve Sheridan compares two Bluetooth headphones, the new PowerBeats 3 against the older Jabra Sports, not as much on sound quality but on fit and Bluetooth connectivity. We’ve got our last interview from NAB 2017, with Yi about their 4K+ Action Camera (the guy called it a GoPro killler). I’ll tell you why I think sleep tracking is dumb and Bart will tell you how an Anker 2 port USB charger solved his problem. Joe Dugandzic of Smarter Home Life will tell us about the new offerings from Ikea in affordable smart lighting. Bruce Wilson tells us about the Plantronics Blackwire C435 headset he used for our interview on Chit Chat Across the Pond this week. We’ll finish up with two dumb questions from me to Bart about clicking unsubscribe links in emails and shortened links in Twitter. I learned something new from his answer.

Recommendations for podcasts NOT about technology

The majority of podcasts I listen to are on technology topics, because technology is both a hobby and a profession for me. Over the years I’ve continually found new tech podcasts by hearing about them on ones I’m already listening to. But I also have other hobbies and interests and I find it harder to pick up new podcasts on these topics, I guess because I don’t have a critical mass on any topic. So I thought I’d share with you a few podcasts I listen to that are not about technology. Continue reading “Recommendations for podcasts NOT about technology”

NC #619 Tap Systems Wearable Keyboard, International Data with Project Fi on iPhone, Tobii Dynavox, Security Bits

From CSUN’s Assistive Technology Conference we’ll hear about Tap Systems wearable keyboard, and Tobii Dynavox speech generating devices. I’ll tell you about how Project Fi gives you international data for a really low price and in theory with high speeds (stay tuned on how that works). Don’t forget to send in audio recordings to Bart Busschots at podcasting@bartificer.net (Allister is all set). Bart is back for Security Bits. If you’ve been waiting for his interpretation of the Wikieleaks CIA hacking tools dump like I was, you’ll enjoy this episode.

NC #618 Atlantic on Specific Musical Anhedonia, DTNS Women in Tech, Printers are Jerks, D-Link Omna Cam, Second Sight Argus Prosthetic Eye

We’ll have one more NosillaCast before we go off on our grand adventure to the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu, and while we’re gone please send in some audio reviews for Allister and Bart (email addresses in the show notes. I brag shamelessly about an article in the Atlantic about me and other people with specific musical anhedonia. I was on the Daily Tech News Show at a href=”http://www.dailytechnewsshow.com/dtns-2984-fintech-fish/” target=”_blank” rel=”no opener”>DTNS #2984 entitled “Fintech != fish” talking about what it was like to be a woman in engineering and tech for 35 years. I’ll tell a tale of how Bart and I cracked the code on my jerk of a printer using our knowledge of subnets and such, then I’ll tell you about the first HomeKit compatible indoor security camera, the D-Link OmnaHD. Then we’ll hear about a prosthetic implant that allows people with retinal degradation to see crude shapes, the Argus from Second Sight.
