Talking Tech and Security, podcast 1

Hello folks,

98.6 the mix is an Internet Radio station where I run two independent artist shows. There is a new DJ that came to us and asked us to produce a show talking tech and security. This show premiered this last Saturday, the 3rd.

I thought it’d be a cool idea to cross post the show to this podcast, as we can have a pannel of people talking about various things.

Don’t worry, this podcast will continue, in fact, we have a new podcast almost ready to go.

Here is the show discription from the mix’s schedule.


This show will talk about the latest in technology and security including but not limited to accessibility, IOS, Android, and the underground.


I believe this can only supplement the podcast I already run. This show also contains music, and a couple of promos about other shows across the network.

I’m only the board operator, not the music selector, but I hope you’ll enjoy the show anyway.

Here is the RSS feed for the show.

Here is the show notes for our very first show.


Hello folks, welcome to our first ever show talking about tech and security with Laura and Jared. We’ve got several different topics for you today. The first topic is dealing with Net Neutrality. We have an article entitled: the net neutrality repeal and next steps. This article is a little dated, but we do not have any other information about this at this time. We have two dumb criminal awards thanks to Krebs on Security. The first: Drugs Tripped Up Suspects In First Known ATM “Jackpotting” Attacks in the US . In this story, there is an attached video from a well known hacker named Barnaby Jack, who is a well known hacker and has done demonstrations dealing with various things. This was a bonus black hat talk. The first article that came out about this was an article entitled: First ‘Jackpotting’ Attacks Hit U.S. ATMs . This was the first time in United States History that this has ever been recorded where something this big has occurred. In the dumb criminal award and the prior story, we see that someone gets caught, with the ATM and some drugs, bad combo? Finally, File Your Taxes Before Scammers Do It For You talks about how we has citizens need to file our taxes before the bad guys do, or suffer the consequences of not being able to file. We also will have a segment dealing with early technology and how it began for us in the assistive technology standpoint of things. During a segment of talking tech, Laura was asking about floppies. Here’s a link to the history of the floppy disk via Wikipedia. Contact information is given throughout the show. Thanks for listening!


Enjoy the show and feel free to contact us! Thanks for reading.

Kansas Man Killed In ‘SWATting’ Attack is the first article and Serial Swatter “SWAuTistic” Bragged He Hit 100 Schools, 10 Homes is the second. Can this get any worse?

Hello everyone, welcome to another edition of the podcast. Football is in the air, College football is in full swing, college basketball is around, and of course, its been busy for me too. I started this podcast when IOS version 11 was released, and I talked about my initial thoughts as well as quick demos of do not disturb changes. One app I really loved was called Notesy. While it still worked, I needed my time sheet to sync with something in case I made mistakes on the phone. Google Docs came in to mind, but these files from notesy were text files, and I needed to find a way to get them in to google docs. Hear in that segment how I did it. In the last segment, I talk about articles I’ve published on a site called vocal.media and below, I’m going to give you those articles specific to technology. Please feel free to read them if they sound interesting to you. Of course, contact information is available at the end.

Thanks for listening to this podcast and I hope you will find the things I bring up of interest.

Technology podcast 259

Show notes:
Welcome to podcast 259 of tech. I’ve been wrapping my head around the WannaCry worm turned ransomware, or worm turned in to a not so money making venture.
To date, 250,000 machines and only $110,000 in money. The blog has various articles on it including my longer piece on vocal. I also have a talk by Mikko
Hyponen, as well as some JFW stuff I’ve fond as I’ve started the relearning process. All of that on this podcast. Thanks for listening.

I published pod 257, it seems to have gone missing

Hi all,

I did some checking, and I remember putting together a podcast numbered 257. Somehow, it never made it up on the site. I apologize about it, and I’ve uploaded it on the RSS feed. I could’ve sworn I uploaded within a day of me me putting it places. Here are the notes about that cast.


On this podcast, we talk about a variety of stuff including ransomware, and I have some segments asking for comment on what we should cover. Hope to hear from you!


I wonder if it got removed somehow during a time where issues were occuring on the network? Its possible, so I’ll just rerelease it and sorry for the trouble!

Podcast 258 is finally here

OK, podcast 258 is finally here. RSS is here.


Hello folks, welcome to the tech podcast. I’m Jared Rimer, and its been busy. I started writing for a site called Vocal, and wrote two tech specific articles for the site. The first is: How Can We Defend Against Ransomware? Omni.media May 10, 2017 aand the second is ATPC Hit with Ransomware, Does Not Pay omni.media April 25, 2017 which got a ton of hits. I’ve also been busy writing short things for the blog here and the one I’m focusing on right now which is generating some interesting comments is A new ransomware wannacry (wanna cry) which is generating comments on how to solve this problem. Its not easy to fix, and we may never fix it, but that post is generating some interesting thoughts. One article I want to bring to your attention as it could be interesting for tech is Bullying, Is This Just a Disability Problem? longevity.media May 2, 2017 because it does talk about a couple of books that I had read, in regards to this issue. First, is this a disability problem? What can we do to curb this? Ransomware has a segment on this podcast too. Hope you’ll enjoy the show, and we’ll have another cast soon.


The podcast is about an hour. Some of the articles and things may be of interest, but the ransomware topic is definitely becoming big now. Hope to have more podcasts out soon.

The Transit App has a function where you can put in intersections. I demonstrate that as part of segment 2. Segments 3 and 4 introduce and talk about a video where someone talks about the top ten tweets that could get you fired from your job. Segment 5 was quite interesting as I demonstrate a game Super Tile Smash app directory entry (apple vis) and they are listening. They posted a thread on Apple vis entitled: Our new game Super Tile Smash Forum post (apple Vis) ofr you to comment on. Segment 6 is news notes where i have some quick mention on what is on the blog that might be of interest. Since I haden’t posted in awhile, I even have some news notes from the prior week where I find after the fact some articles I’ve already commented on. Finally, a segment with some additional comments made to me in regards to Super Tile Smash via E-mail and contact information. I hope you’ll enjoy the program as much as I have putting it together for you. The program is an hour and a half long, and I’ll definitely see you on another edition of the podcast. See you soon!
