Technology podcast 292: braille transcription, security researchers turn cybercriminal, drones and w

Welcome to podcast 292 of the technology blog and podcast series. We’ve got a bunch of stuff for you, and i hope you enjoy the program as much as I have bringing it to you. The program is 83 minutes in length.

  • Braille Transcription course and learning UEB. My thoughts on learning UEB as a transcriber, and not just as a reader. I also have some corrections from last podcast.
  • A very interesting article which is entitled When Security Researchers Pose as Cybercrooks, Who Can Tell the Difference? and boy it gives a real true tale that happened to Brian. The article was written on the 2nd of October, and I discuss my thoughts on it.
  • The third segment deals with a Youtube segment, and it is a short video. drones verses the california wildfires is the video and I introduce this one. I honestly don’t remember where I saw it, but I think it is quite interesting.
  • Winamp gets an update. Winamp’s web site has an announcement that I was tipped off to in regards to its development. Not being touched in quite awhile, Winamp 6 is coming soon, but they gave us a functioning 5.8 which I was provided. I’ll let you know how it works. Hopefully, the new company who is doing winamp, keeps the accessibility in place we in the blind community are accustomed to. Wishing and hoping.
  • Finally, Voice Phishing Scams Are Getting More Clever caught my attention. I do talk about something I got by a voice message a few weeks ago, where I’ve not returned the call, and yet, I’m also still here. Do you want to learn more about voice phishing? If you do, please go to the voice phishing page on Wikipedia so you are educated.

Our contact information is at the end of the program as well, as well as briefly at the beginning. Please remember to utalize the info if you have any comments, questions, or concerns. Thanks so much for listening to this program, and I hope you’ll join me for another podcast soon. More great interesting info is coming I thought you’d enjoy too. Thanks for listening!

Winamp 6, due out in 2019, aims to whip more llama ass

Hi folks,

I was tweeted this, and this is interesting. I’m not completely sure what this will mean for the disabled community, but I do hope that the accessibility features continue. But for now, I’m going to publish this, and we’ll see what happens.

“You can listen to the MP3s you may have at home, but also to the cloud, to podcasts…”

Sirius XM to Buy Pandora in Bet on Streaming Music

Hi folks,

The radio connection live group has notified me about this, and Herbie posted the article below, and I thought I’d post this along.

Sirius XM agreed to buy Pandora Media in a deal valued at about $3.5 billion, including debt, as the two sides face increasing competition from Spotify and Apple Music.

blindy.tv to be closed on October 1

Hi all,

I saw the following tweet on my twitter, and thought people should see this.


Brandon B, RT @BlindyTV: Due to accelerating degradation of our existing automation software, and the lack of time/interest to rebuild it and continue editing new content, it has been decided to retire the BlindyTV service on 10/1/18, at 12:00 EDT, after nearly 6 years of broadcasting. Thanks, everyone. 29 minutes ago, TW Blue


I’ve listened to this network through RS Games at times, and I thought it was very interesting what they were doing. For those who have enjoyed the network, I’m saddened to see it go. I like the idea of what they were doing and I don’t know what software they were using, but sometimes, you’ve got to make a tough decision.

Good news, what have we found now?

I’ve found two articles with some good news impacts within my RSS feed that I’d like to let people know about. Russian hacker pleads guilty for role in massive botnet schemes is the first, and Latvian hacker sentenced to 33 months in prison for scareware scheme is the second. This is all great news, as it shows that the law is starting to work on our side and we are going to try our best to detur criminals away from the hacking scene and to do some good I hope. I know its a slow process, and only time will tell what will happen. Great job!

How to combat the long lives of zero-day vulnerabilities

I just read this article today called How to combat the long lives of zero-day vulnerabilities and I didn’t know vulnerabilities can last 6 to 9 years if not patched. This is something I’ve never known before and I didn’t think it was this bad. This was definitely something I thought we should pass along.

Anchor update for the evening of September 11th 20:00 hours

I’ve got an update for all of you that might be of interest as we iron out the bugs. Thanks for your support!


Hello folks,

Anchor has submitted my podcasts to other directories. Here are the links to them if you wish to subscribe.

As of the time I’m putting this post together for you, Google is not working, but do keep the link around. This is what was sent to me.

Also, I put the audio directory back on this server, and it looks like that may have fixed some redirect issues that I’ve seen. I’m always working on getting things as seemless as possible. Thanks for your continued support!

Its time for patch tuesday once again

Patch Tuesday is here and Brian has this blog post covering the details. I know Trend Micro will probably submit something, and I’ll post something when they do. I believe its going to be over 60 patches if I remember correctly? Flash is no better, and can 2020 come soon enough?

anchor update for September 11

Hi all,

This is a learning experience for all of us. I’ve just updated the information you need page on this blog with this RSS feed. The redirect may be causing some side effects, including:

  • The inability to receive podcasts.
  • A mixture of different episodes.
  • A URL not found when putting the technology.jaredrimer.net/audio in your podcast feed.

This is all a learning experience, because I need to know how to proceed if I want to use anchor on other platforms for my other podcasts.

I appreciate the messages I’ve gotten about the issues.

Some of the comments are dealing with the file names, and I do not have any control of them. I upload it as my file structure, however, it renames the file and that I need to look in to.

Please continue to let me know of any issues so I may enquire in to what is happening. Thanks for reading!
