NC #607 Primitive, Lost Voicemails, AirPods, Security Bits

It’s Christmas Day but there’s a fresh NosillaCast anyway – no best of show for us. Allister Jenks joins us to talk about the photo manipulation app Primitive for Mac from primitive.lol/…. I’ll tell you the tragic story of how Melissa lost her father’s voicemails and our joint discovery of how to get them back. I’ll give you my review of the Apple AirPods and we’ll talk about whether Bluetooth on them is fiddly, how they fit, and usability with Siri. Steve will jump in to talk about music playback quality (since that’s not my strong suit. Rush Sherman tells us about how he and I worked out a way to help him support the podcast through Patreon at a price his family could afford. Bart Busschots joins us for Security Bits.

NC #606 Eye Chart Radio, Yahoo Breach and MD5, Amazon Duet, Nomorobo for iOS, Shelly & Steve Poems

We WILL have episodes of the NosillaCast (and live shows) on both Christmas and New Years day (unlike those other slacker podcasters). Check out last week’s episode of Chit Chat Across the Pond with Chris Ashley from the SMR Podcast (fun with Windows!). I’m one of the new rotating co-hosts for Eye Chart Radio with Mike LaPlante. Bart comes on for just a few minutes to chat about the ginormous Yahoo breach of 1 BILLION accounts is even worse than it sounds. He explains why it was so absurdly bad that Yahoo was hashing passwords with MD5. Terry Austin sends in a review of Nomorobo for the iPhone. Shelly Brisbin does a dramatic reading of her poem, “I Did Not Buy the MacBook Pro”. I’ll tell you about a way to achieve simultaneous onsite and offsite backups using the new Amazon Duet drive from Seagate.

Joe LaGreca and I collaborated on a review of IRCcloud at irccloud.com, which helps you stay logged into all your favorite IRC clients. The folks at Serif have done it again, coming out with Affinity Photo 1.5 for Mac AND Windows that adds HDR, Tone Mapping, Focus Stacking and more.

There will be no live show next week as we’re going to hear Shai Yammanee (good friend of the show) perform in Mamma Mia! If you’re in the LA area and can join us, check out scfta.org for matinée tickets. I was on the Clockwise #163 The Ultimate Dongle and Let’s Talk Photography at lets-talk.ie/… this week. Chit Chat Across the Pond was actually a Taming the Terminal episode and you can see the shownotes at bartbusschots.ie/…. I give a rant on the show first about how HomeKit isn’t making home automation any easier, and then I’ll complain about how I just can’t win on delivery of Apple products. Then I’ll finish up my two part series on how different apps implement 3D Touch on the iPhones 6s and above. Finally I’ll give you my first look review of the 15″ MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

NC #599 iPhone 7+ Portrait Mode, 2016 MacBook Pros, Security Bits

Next week the show will be out early because we’ll be out of town on the weekend, so don’t try to go to the live show because there won’t be one! In Chit Chat Across the Pond, Bart taught us how to create a JavaScript API in Programming By Stealth 24. I did some experiments with the new iPhone 7+ feature called Portrait mode comparing the photos to a DSLR. The new MacBook Pros are coming and I’ll talk through the features and try to help you see if they’re good or bad choice for you. Bart Busschots is back with Security Bits where we do a deeper dive into DirtyCOW and Drammer along with important security updates, notable breaches and suggested reading.

NC #598 YouTube Takedown, Not Sad About Samsung, Reminders, Echo Dot, Dyn DNS DDoS Attack

I got to host Bart’s show, Let’s Talk Photography at lets-talk.ie/…. My RecoLive Tutorial is up at ScreenCasts Online, check it out at screencastsonline.com/…. I go on a bit of a rant about how the Live Show almost died because of a guy doing a takedown notice on YouTube of an interview we did with his company. That rant is followed by another one where I explain why I am neither sad nor surprised about the mess Samsung is in. If you get value out of the show, please consider pledging support at podfeet.com/patreon. I do a deep dive into the Reminders app for iOS and macOS. Then I walk you through my experience setting up the $50 Amazon Echo Dot. Bart Busschots jumps in for an out of band Security Medium where he explains what happened to the Internet this week. We talk about DNS and how the servers work, the role insecure IoT devices played in it and some suspicions about who was behind the attack.
