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.

NC #616 udoq, CodeRunner, Olly, CrashPlan, Wynd

Megan Morrone and Jason Howell from TWiT join me this week on Chit Chat Across the Pond to talk about their swap of iOS and Android. Our last three interviews from CES include the udoq Mobile Docking Station, Olly’s Robotic Personal Assistant, and the Wind Smart Air Purifier. I’ll tell you about my hunt for the perfect code editor and why I chose CodeRunner. A surprising turn of events as CrashPlan actually succeeds at getting my offsite backups to work. It’s a really interesting story of what caused the problem and how they fixed it. It even highlights a shortcoming of Backblaze.
