We have a huge show today. Steve’s put out two more video interviews from NAB in Las Vegas, I’ve got a pretty big announcement about Chit Chat Across the Pond, and we’ve got another giant Security Bits with Bart Busschots. I told him maybe when there’s such a big security news week we should call it Security Blobs!
There are five Security Mediums in this episode. We’ll talk about a remote code execution built in Intel CPUs, Bart will explain what can go wrong with two-factor authentication through SMS, we’ll cover the Google Docs phishing worm and how Google could have prevented it, we’ll learn about how the beloved Handbrake servers got hacked causing distribution of malware, and as if that isn’t enough we’ll talk about the WannaCry worm that has indiscriminately taken down networks across the globe.
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.
Allison interviews Matt Gordon from VSN Mobil about their new action camera. The waterproof and dustproof V.360° camera captures full 360 degree HD video using a single image sensor. Using a single sensor eliminates the need to stitch frames together to form the seamless 360 deg image. The setting is the ShowStoppers NAB 2015 show floor.
Allison interviews John O’Connell from Pond5 about their online marketplace for stock media. Pond5 has over 3.5 million movie clips, 300,000 music clips and 500,000 sound effects available from their international base of artists. The setting is the NAB 2015 SuperMeet show floor.
Allison interviews Craig Davidson from GoPro about their video editing software. GoPro Studio is a very capable tool for editing GoPro (and other) videos on Windows and Mac OS desktop platforms. It is available for free at the GoPro website. The setting is the NAB 2015 show room floor.
