    NC #631 Blind Podcast Subscriptions, What You Can't Do Without Data, IT is Waste, Security Bits

    Update on Ring and they're problematic app and website, Daniel Semro demonstrates how a blind person subscribes to a podcast. It's surprising what things you can't do without data (as I learned in the national parks last week). In response to Tim Jahr's question, I'll explain why I said during Chit Chat Across the Pond with Bruce Wilson that IT is waste. Claus Wolf asks for a change to the Amazon Affiliate Links and I grant that wish. Bart Busschots is back with another fabulous Security Bits segment.

    NC #630 PowerBeats3 vs Jabra Sport Headphones, Yi 4K+ Action Camera, Sleep Tracking is Dumb, Anker USB Charger, Ikea Smart Lighting Plantronics Headset, Is it Safe to Click a Link?

    Steve Sheridan compares two Bluetooth headphones, the new PowerBeats 3 against the older Jabra Sports, not as much on sound quality but on fit and Bluetooth connectivity. We've got our last interview from NAB 2017, with Yi about their 4K+ Action Camera (the guy called it a GoPro killler). I'll tell you why I think sleep tracking is dumb and Bart will tell you how an Anker 2 port USB charger solved his problem. Joe Dugandzic of Smarter Home Life will tell us about the new offerings from Ikea in affordable smart lighting. Bruce Wilson tells us about the Plantronics Blackwire C435 headset he used for our interview on Chit Chat Across the Pond this week. We'll finish up with two dumb questions from me to Bart about clicking unsubscribe links in emails and shortened links in Twitter. I learned something new from his answer.

    NC #629 Rogue Amoeba Gold Standard, Ricoh Next Gen Theta S, QA for All the Things, Security Bits

    Bart and I pushed out a new episode of Taming the Terminal in both the Chit Chat Across the Pond Taming the Terminal feeds. I'll tell you why Rogue Amoeba is the gold standard of customer support. Then we'll hear about Ricoh's next generation 360 camera. I'll then go on a rant of all of the quality assurance work I've done for so many companies in the last few weeks, including AirPods, iPads Pro, iPad Pro keyboards, Ring video software and website, Apple Watch activity sharing, Screenflow and even macOS. Bart Busschots is back with a new edition of Security Bits. He explains subtleties of the WannaCry ransomeware that I've heard nowhere else, then he explains how Apple is going to institute a requirement for app-specific passwords for third party apps with access to your iCloud calendar, contacts and mail. Very important listening.

    NC #628 Dumb Question Corner, B&H Photo, GoPro Karma Drone, Hunting Black Bars of Doom

    Chit Chat Across the Pond Lite and Programming By Stealth are both searchable now in iTunes, the Apple Podcasts app, along with Downcast, Pocketcasts and Overcast. I put out a call for help - I need recorded reviews some time next week for the following week's show because we're going on yet another vacation. Videos are now a button on the podfeet.com home page so you can get to them more easily and I explain how Helma helped me make that happen. In Dumb Question Corner I'll answer Rod Simmons's boss's question about how to mark up emails on an iPad Pro. We've got two more NAB 2017 interviews: we'll talk to B&H about their mobile microphones, and GoPro about their new Karma Drone. I'll walk you through all of the intricacies of tech goodness in how I think I've finally rid podfeet.com of the Black Bars of Doom (trademark Donald Burr).
