    NC #619 Tap Systems Wearable Keyboard, International Data with Project Fi on iPhone, Tobii Dynavox, Security Bits

    From CSUN’s Assistive Technology Conference we'll hear about Tap Systems wearable keyboard, and Tobii Dynavox speech generating devices. I'll tell you about how Project Fi gives you international data for a really low price and in theory with high speeds (stay tuned on how that works). Don't forget to send in audio recordings to Bart Busschots at podcasting@bartificer.net (Allister is all set). Bart is back for Security Bits. If you've been waiting for his interpretation of the Wikieleaks CIA hacking tools dump like I was, you'll enjoy this episode.

    NC #618 Atlantic on Specific Musical Anhedonia, DTNS Women in Tech, Printers are Jerks, D-Link Omna Cam, Second Site Argus Prosthetic Eye

    We'll have one more NosillaCast before we go off on our grand adventure to the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu, and while we're gone please send in some audio reviews for Allister and Bart (email addresses in the show notes. I brag shamelessly about an article in the Atlantic about me and other people with specific musical anhedonia. I was on the Daily Tech News Show at a href="http://www.dailytechnewsshow.com/dtns-2984-fintech-fish/" target="_blank" rel="no opener">DTNS #2984 entitled "Fintech != fish" talking about what it was like to be a woman in engineering and tech for 35 years. I'll tell a tale of how Bart and I cracked the code on my jerk of a printer using our knowledge of subnets and such, then I'll tell you about the first HomeKit compatible indoor security camera, the D-Link OmnaHD. Then we'll hear about a prosthetic implant that allows people with retinal degradation to see crude shapes, the Argus from Second Sight.

    NC #617 CSUN, Animation Was Hard, Dumb Question on Amazon, Security Bits

    In this week's show I tell the long harrowing story of how I did a computer animation in the early 1980s and how hard it was using the tech of the day, I'll answer a dumb question about how the payments work for Amazon Affiliate Links, and Bart Busschots is back with Security Bits where he'll tell us whether to light our hair on fire about the breach at Cloudflare, how Google produced a collision in SHA1 and why that matters, along with important security news, notable breaches (yes, Yahoo again) and why you shouldn't use IE or Edge on Windows until they fix the known zero day bug.

    NC #616 udoq, CodeRunner, Olly, CrashPlan, Wynd

    Megan Morrone and Jason Howell from TWiT join me this week on Chit Chat Across the Pond to talk about their swap of iOS and Android. Our last three interviews from CES include the udoq Mobile Docking Station, Olly's Robotic Personal Assistant, and the Wind Smart Air Purifier. I'll tell you about my hunt for the perfect code editor and why I chose CodeRunner. A surprising turn of events as CrashPlan actually succeeds at getting my offsite backups to work. It's a really interesting story of what caused the problem and how they fixed it. It even highlights a shortcoming of Backblaze.

    NC #615 PAI, IPv6 and MAC Addresses, CMRA, Nag Companies About Security, Security Bits

    I got to be on Clockwise again with Jason Snell, Dan Moren and Mikah Sargent. At CES, we interview Jessica Lane as she tells us about PAI Technologies interactive clay toys for kids and talk to CMRA about their camera band for the Apple Watch. I have a special Public Service Announcement urging everyone to nag companies if you see them doing things not as securely as you would hope. It features my father-in-law, who is my hero at pushing companies. Bart Busschots joins us for another scary episode of Security Bits.
