technology podcast 316 is now available!

The Tech podcast which is number 316 in my series is now out. We Transfer RSS and mixcloud have the files. Below, please find the show notes.


Hello folks, welcome to the tech podcast, podcast 316. On this podcast, we cover We Transfer. This is a service that was used to deliver files to me, and I actually like its interface. If it is right, I could see myself paying for it, but right now, I don’t need to do that. I talk about this service and what it has to offer. Next Braille 2000 V2.274 take 2: we’re getting better is the accompanying article and I talk about a new menu that will appear once the talking edition becomes available to the general public hopefully very soon. The beta can now be recommended, and you should contact Bob to get your copy. Finally, Krebs on Security is here with an article A Tough Week for IP Address Scammers is discussed. I hope you enjoy the program as much as I have, and thanks so much for listening to the program!

See you next time!


Thanks for listening!

Podcast 315 update

Hi all,

After doing some thinking after sending an email to Anchor, I tried something which allowed me to log in and get the podcast on the RSS feed for everyone. While the wetransfer link is still good, people are now able to get the podcast through RSS. Mixcloud and I need to date to determine where I am uploading, because i stopped using it for some reason. I want to be able to provide people options, and Mixcloud is one. I will do that soon, and it will also be updated accordingly. Thanks for your continued support. I hope to be back real soon with another podcast.

Due to a technical error, the RSS feed seems to not allow me to log in to upload. We’re working on it. This we transfer link is a link to a 7 day download of the podcast which includes the show notes along with it. We’re covering a lot for this podcast, so why not get your copy?

I’ve already got an email in to anchor to find out why I can’t log in. My other account is also effected, and I even cleared history and cookies with no results. Thanks for your continued support.

The Technology blog and podcast, podcast 314

Holy crap, I forgot to post about tech podcast 314’s release. I don’t even think its on mixcloud yet. Me and mixcloud need to have a date, but the podcast is out. I’ve also neglected this blog as well. I’ve been reading a lot, but then quit. But I’ll try to be better.

Here are the notations about the program.

RSS Mixcloud


On this podcast, tech moving too fast: do you think it is? Next, a braille transcription fail, big time. Gaelynn Lea, an artist on CD Baby, is disabled and yet involved in touring and more. I pick a track from this artist and we feature it. Finally, a tech talk dealing with a wristwatch to aid the blind and others in navigation. Search the tedtalk out on Youtube or Ted’s website. CD Baby page for Gaelynn Lea so you can read more about her.


This program was released on the 14th.

Tech podcast 313: Wipro, Braille 2000, 2019 Phishing report, and more

RSS and Mixcloud have copies of the show. Here are the show notes and articles.


Welcome to the technology blog and podcast, podcast 313. We’ve got a lot for you in a wide variety of news, notes, Braille 2000 stuff, and more.

  • Wipro (pronounced We Pro) is in the news big time. There are three articles which are talked about in the first segment.
  • The 2019 Phishing Trends and Intellegence Report is out. Some very interesting stats within this article that I discuss.
  • Julian Assange was recently picked up for violating the CFAA according to a report. I thought I saw multiple articles, but one article was retrieved. I talk about this development.
  • Braille 2000 is getting ready to release their next version. In a segment, I talk about the Braille 2000 percent codes in general, highlighting the entire list that I have, skipping some which aren’t available yet. They’re talked about in passing, but no code is discussed in full. The web site has removed Version 1 of the software, and version 2 that has been ran is now on the home page.
  • Two ted talks about seizures and heart attacks are talked about and the full talks are played in full. You can search the talks separately through YouTube on the ted talks channel.

The articles dealing with Wipro are hard to swallow. Clearly, nobody knows what is happening, but hopefully they’ve found the issue and corrected it. Being an IT company, you need to understand these things and do proper PR. The PR here was not good, and I’m sure they’ll feel the reprocussions for awhile.

A list of articles that accompany the podcast follows:

Enjoy the podcast, it lasts 72 minutes long. Thanks for listening and make it a great day!

Tech podcast 310: Phones, privitation of messages on voice mail, and more

Edited to fix HTML, and to remove the listen line because the show has been removed by request.

RSS and Mixcloud have the show.


Hello everyone, welcome to podcast 310. On this podcast, we’ve got a very diverse podcast for you.

  • Bullying, is it a disability problem? I talk about this again in a different way. I talk about this in a way where one might be deleted for no reason, including but not limited to false information, information that may be old, and other aspects of the article. Bullying, Is This Just a Disability Problem? longevity.media May 2, 2017
  • Privitizing messages in voice mail, is it a big deal? Live wire made an announcement and change in regards to marking messages private which was received well. In today’s day in age, it is easy to take any private message and make a copy of it if you know how. Good idea? Bad idea?
  • Why Phone Numbers Stink As Identity Proof is talked about next. This article was written by Krebs on Security on the 17th of March. It argues in part that giving out our mobile telephone numbers may be more of a problem, and we should use services including but not limited to Google and disposable numbers from Services like Text Now. There are several people I know that have used, or are using the service in different ways. I’m sure there are other services that can be used too.
  • 51 Critical Cyber Bullying Statistics in 2019 is linked from the blog to an article sent by Someone named Caroline Black. She linked in an email to a post of mine from last year where bullying and cyberbullying was talked about. This article has some very chilling stats, and its talking to others and bringing awareness to the problem that will solve it. I talk about some of the statistics within this article and have invited Caroline to the podcast to discuss this.
  • IOS and Mac have updates is a short segment. In this segment, the fact that IOS and Mac have updates is mentioned with info on how to find the posting where you can learn more.
  • Finally, Text Reminders is talked about. There is no demo, but a description of the service, the fact it isn’t free, and the basics about it. I worked with the company behind this to make the site accessible. The service works, and I find it valuable.

As in all podcasts, contact information including Email, Imessage, and Text Messaging options is given at the end. If you’re listening by phone, leave public feedback, and if you want, have it aired on an upcoming podcast by letting me know. The podcast lasts over an hour in length. Thanks so much for listening, and make it a great day!

Philmore Productions is back in the spotlight, this time, a very interesting voice mail saying that he’s getting a T1 update, but yet, you tell me if he’s describing voice ovr ip. I got a very interesting phone call, this happened in the middle of my blog post typing, so i stopped to answer the phone. The phone call didn’t identify itself from a company, but yet, went on to talk about the fact I was due 0 percent APR if I acted immediately. I talk about news notes, and things of interest that I’ve read including an article that was very interesting in court cases and jail time. Also, File Mail is a service that was discussed briefly from Security Now. Dice World has an update of interest, and of course contact information is available at the end of the program.

Tech podcast 303

RSS has this as well as Mixcloud. Enjoy!


Here are the show notes.


Hello folks, welcome to podcast 303 of the technology blog and podcast series.

I’d like to start the podcast with something that came across my desk. This first segment deals with Swatting, and its a very interesting topic as now we’ve got a very interesting story that has a happy ending. Facebook cybersecurity exec victim of swatting call is the name of the article that sparked this discussion. When I retweeted this article, I got some likes and a conversation from someone who has been effected by swatting. The individual, whom I’m not naming talked to me about some things he’s been doing to learn, and he wrote an article A decidedly creepy story of how social media can impact your life. I told him my story of someone who had been wanting information from me, but yet, that individual was talked about on my podcast, and had to serve some time. He was able to gather that I’m blind, however, that isn’t top secret as its posted on my personal page, among other places as well. I sent some related articles his way which were written by me: Bullying, Is This Just a Disability Problem? and Can Social Media Really Be Bad for You? People need to think about their actions no matter whether they were targets of social engineering or swatting, both can have their own consequences. I think we really need to continue the conversation, and I’d love to hear from you on ways to curve the swatting and social engineering epidemic that has plagued us for way too long. Knowing that swatting has been a dacades long problem as of late isn’t going to make me feel better, thats for sure.

Next, I found someone with an interesting braille question, dealing with a contraction we’ve known for the longest time. While the contraction in question has not changed from English American Braille to Unified English Braille, the question was asked why the word here was spelled out with the “er” contraction and not the “dot 5, h” as we were taught. I’m curious on whether we have found an issue with the book with an error, or whether it was written that way by someone who doesn’t know the rules? I’m not going to speculate, but I’m putting it out there.

Next, Marty at Blindfold Games comes on the podcast to discuss his company Objective Education. I talk to him about some of the popular games, some that have dropped off, and about the new company. He gives his contact information at the end of that segment.

Finally, contact information as a whole, and a teaser on whats coming up on the next available podcast.

The podcast runs you 76 minutes, and I hope you enjoy! Thanks for listening!

Tech podcast 302

Tech podcast 302 is on our RSS feed for those who want it. I will make sure it gets on Mixcloud. In the meantime, I want to put up the show notes which you can see through the RSS already. Sorry for getting the show notes up late, I’ll do better next time.


Hello everyone, welcome to podcast 302 of Jared’s technology blog and podcast series. How many of you know about Live Wire and its sister system Ground Zero? If you don’t, I have a short segment in regards to both, and include Live Wire’s web site for you to go peruse its offerings. Next, BevMo payment breach affects thousands, with researchers pointing to Magecart is talked about, but yet, BevMo did the best they could. Next, Skype has some changes, and a potential bug that happened to me could happen to you. Finally, lesson 8 of the braille transcription course, and reading with Braille 2000 with JFW is demoed, as there is something that I’ve found that isn’t a show stopper, but yet, I’ve provided the file to Braille 2000 for their review and hopeful resolution. Contact information is at the end, and please feel free to utalize it. Thanks for reading the show notes, and enjoy your day!


I hope you enjoy the show as much as I have putting it together for you.
