My video tutorial about Affinity Photo (part 1) is up on ScreenCasts Online at screencastsonline.com/…. Two interviews from Photon LA: Olympus PEN-F Camera and 300mm Prime Lens, and Kenko-Tokina with their SLIK Monopod and AquaTech Camera Housing. After some time with it, I have to admit that two-factor authentication isn’t actually that bad. And Bart Busschots is back with Security Bits as well.
The show’s out early (no live show this weekend) and it includes a great story about how MenuBar Stats from seense.com became accessible. Then we’ll hear from NosillaCastaway Todd McCann telling us about a Slack group he created for his trucker geek friends. I’ll give you part 2 of my Affinity Photo review and then Steve Sheridan, aka spsheridan joins us to explain what Reddit is, why it’s so popular and how it works.
I bit the bullet this week and turned on two-factor authentication for both my NosillaCast Google Account and my Apple ID. It was an “interesting” adventure in the same vein as the Chinese curse, “May you have interesting times.” The two experiences were really different and I’m not sure which one was better. In-between those two discussions we’ll cleanse our palettes with a discussion of David Sparks new Hazel Video Field Guide. After we’re done with the two-factor discussion, Bart joins us for Security Bits.
Turns out the Theta S software works great on the iPhone, IF you have the right version. We’ll have a nice Trigonometry lesson as I try to explain what interpolation means and why you might care about it if you’re editing images. We have an interview with FoxFury Lighting and Audio-Technica from NAB.
Happy 11th anniversary to the NosillaCast! You can listen to the first show that aired on Sunday May 15, 2005. I’ll tell you about EasilyDo Email which might just make your life easier, and then I have a review of the new Ricoh Theta S 360 degree camera. Bart is back with Security Bits (spoiler: there’s updates to everything!)
I’m back from vacation, and so thankful to Bart and Allister for taking care of the show while I was gone. This week we’ll talk about how Steve and I saved the Daily Tech News Show with Tom Merritt and the price he had to pay for our help, we’ll hear an interview from NAB 2016 with Ikan about their Smartphone gimbal, and I’ll give you part one of my Affinity Photo review. This is an application that’s so huge and powerful for only $50 that I had to split it in two. This week is all about how to use the Affinity Extensions and next time we’ll talk about all of the advanced features you get with the standalone application.
Allister here standing in for Allison this week. I’ll tell you how I solved my OS X network drive problems. Then Dorothy, aka MacLurker, reviews the iOS game Enigmo. Next, inspired by Allison, I encourage you to play with fire. We hear from Drobo about their new myDrobo and DroboAccess services from the NAB conference. And finally, I review the Beurer GS485 digital scale.
This show is guest-hosted by Bart Busschots. The show starts with a little rant about how Apple did not accidentally admit to practicing Planned Obsolescence, no matter what the tabloid press (or Irish radio) say. Allison teleports in from the past with an interview with PRC from CES 2016, Bart recommends the Hardcore History podcast, and finally, Bart does a solo Security Bits.
This week we’ll learn how awesome Smile, the makers of TextExpander really is (in spite of last week) and how Ditto can give you notifications without a smart watch. We’ll learn how you really NEED a wicked cool new router like the Netgear X8 5300ac, and Bart is back with Security Bits.
I explain how I pulled off the live show with no voice last week using Loopback and Audio Hijack from Rogue Amoeba. Next we’ll hear an interview about a telephone for those with some hearing loss that will provides real time captioning. I’ll tell you whether you should get a big or a small iPad, and then we’ll finish with a fascinating interview about Touch Graphics for Universal Access.
