NC #680 Keep It, Backblaze B2, Airtable, Security Bits

There won’t be a live show next week, and the NosillaCast will be out on Tuesday instead of Sunday (sorry guys). Check out the tutorial I did on Keep It for ScreenCasts Online at screencastsonline.com. We’ve got another of Steve’s videos from NAB, this time from Backblaze about their B2 cloud storage. Then I’ll tell you how using Airtable from airtable.com might help me finally wrap my brain around databases as I attempt to manage my bathroom remodel with it. Bart Busschots is with us for another fine edition of Security Bits about Efail, protection of the 4th Amendment, Glitch & ThrowHammer as well as Black Dot & Text-Bomb.

NC #679 NosillaCast Turns 13, Doorbell Tells on UPS, mimoLive, Airplane Noise Solved with Audio Hijack, Array Reference in Excel, Snapthread

We celebrate 13 years of podcasting (on the 13th), I tell the story of how my doorbell informed us that our UPS had died. We hear the interview with Boinx from NAB, and I’ll explain how Rogue Amoeba’s Audio Hijack solved two problems on an airplane. I get my Excel geek on when I solve a dumb question for John, and in a more practical tip, I’ll teach you about Snapthread for making videos out of Live Photos.

NC #678 StepShot Guides, Monoprice SlimRun Ethernet & HDMI Cables, Security Bits

We’ll take a look at StepShot Guides to see if it’s a worthy replacement for Clarify after all. Then we have an interview with Monoprice from NAB where we’ll have a surprisingly interesting and funny interview about SlimRun Ethernet and HDMI cables. Bart and I haven’t talked Security Bits in ages, so we have a nice long one for you.

NC #676 Polaroid ZIP Mobile Printer, Vitec Imaging, Hindenburg Journalist, mimoLive

Next week the SMR Podcast guys are in charge of the show (good luck with that) so there won’t be a live show till May 6th. This week we’ve got a review of the Polaroid ZIP Mobile Printer done on location in Belgium with Peter Boodts, we’ve got two interviews from NAB: Vice Imaging about their Manfrotto grip for the mobile videographer and Hindenburg Journalist, the software I use for recording the NosillaCast. Then I’ll tell you about a crazy tool called mimoLive from Boinx Software that Steve and I are using to produce the live NosillaCast.

NC #675 AssisTech SmartCane, LED Shoe Lights, Smartbox, Security Bits

In this week’s show I announce the new “Special Pages” button on podfeet.com (I know, exciting to have a new button, isn’t it?) We used mimoLive from Boinx Software for the first time making the live show, but I only tease you at the beginning that I’ll explain what that is. I promise, I’ll tell you all about it next week! We’ve got two last interviews from CSUN: the AssisTech SmartCane and Smartbox for those with speaking challenges. I’ll tell you how I have even MORE blinky lights on me when I go for a walk thanks to Bart, and then we’ll have Security Bits where Bart gives us an update on the Cambridge Analytica/Facebook kerfuffle, WebAuthn, and more security news and information.

NC #674 Reggie Ashworth, Clarify, Second Sight, Dumb Question on Accessibility, Seeing AI

In this week’s episode, I open with the sad news that Reggie Ashworth, author of the great apps AppDelete and VidConvert has passed away. We have a minor bit of news about Clarify that is slightly hopeful that it will survive into the next version of Mac App Store (but don’t get your heart set on it). Then we finally start having some fun as we play interviews from CSUN’s Assistive Technology Conference: Second Sight and Orcam MyEye 2.0. I answer a dumb question about why I care so much about accessibility. Then I’ll give you a multi-media tour of a free app from Microsoft called Seeing AI.

NC #673 Dumb Mistakes, Monosnap Screencast, Worst Book Creation Apps, Security Bits

We start with how wrong I was last week, with two huge mistakes. I posted a teaser video about a Monosnap screencast I did for ScreenCasts Online, and how I was on Daily Tech News Show #3248 where we talked about whether the announcements from Apple will help them get back in the game with education. Then I’ll walk you through the harrowing tale of how awful both iBooks Author and Pages are at creating ebooks. Then Bart joins us to give a follow up on the Cambridge Analytica/Facebook kerfuffle, he’ll tell us about two new laws in the US called SESTA/FOSTA and the CLOUD act, and he’ll tell us about the very clever fix Apple came up with for the HSTS vulnerability that’s plaguing all browsers.

NC #672 Tech on Travel, Overcast Playlists, Auto-HDR on Olympus Cameras, Security Bits Cambridge Analytica & Facebook

I’ll talk about what tech things we used and learned more about in Paris including improvements in Project Fi, VPN challenges, Apple Pay, calorie metrics with Apple Watch and high-speed trains. Bart barges in on the show to tell me about how he uses a combination of smart playlists and modifications in Overcast to create the best of both worlds. I’ll tell you about a really cool button I found on my Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II to automatically shoot HDR shots. Bart joins us again for an out-of-band Security Bits to talk about the kerfuffle about Cambridge Analytica and Facebook.

Bart Busschots stands in for a vacationing Allison Sheridan. Since the show is recorded on St. Patrick’s Day, Bart starts with a recipe for an Irish hot whiskey.
