Here are the show notes:


Welcome to podcast 4 of the talking tech and security show on 986themix.com and wherever else it may go. This week, several different topics came up, and one, we didn’t have time to cover but will link to in case people want to comment.

  • Our first topic deals with Microsoft and Be my Eyes. This article from Microsoft entitled Microsoft joins Be My Eyes app to provide tech support to Blind and Low Vision customers is where you can read more. Join the discussion as well. According to a paragraph in the article, it says: “Through the new app update, customers in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Ireland, India, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, and the United States will be able to connect with the Microsoft Disability Answer Desk.” This is a first step and this got a lot of praise.
  • Next, from Cyberscoop, Report: Cybercrime causes over $600 billion in damage annually comes from Cyberscoop. Lots of different comments from this one, and the numbers are staggering. I have a feeling that its only going to get worse.
  • The third item talks about technology and its usage by various people. Herbie facilitates this talk, and you’re welcome to join in.
  • The Dark Net: Inside the Digital Underworld was discussed. One of our guests talked about the Tor (anonymity network) browser and other aspects. This was enlightening, learning that the browser is accessible and usable. Many people were surprised on what it was about and what people can find in the underbelly of the Internet. For those using NLS services, the Digital book number is DB 82835. The description from bard says: “Description: Technology academic and columnist explores areas of the Internet that are havens for questionable activities. Examines the growth of the Internet
    from its earliest days, types of personalities who benefit from anonymity, and how the Internet is used outside the public eye. Strong language and some
    descriptions of sex. 2014.” I have this on my wishlist to read.
  • In a topic we did not cover due to time constraints, we had planned to talk about elder fraud. An article found through the FBI entitled: Elder Fraud: Law Enforcement Action Aimed at Those Who Victimize Senior Citizens. If you want us to cover this topic in a future program, please let us know.
