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!

Hello Everyone, RSS and Mixcloud have the podcast. If you would like, please feel free to contact me. Here are the show notes for this program.


Welcome to podcast 288, I’m hoping you’ll enjoy this podcast. Why are we going after cybersecurity companies, and not the people who are actually doing the hacking?

Tech podcast 287 is now up!

Hi all,

Podcast 287 is now up. Its on our RSS feed as well as mixcloud for your listening pleasure. It will also be on live wire and ground zero later on. My box over on both systems is 2276.

Here are the show notes.


Hello folks, welcome to podcast number 287. This is the first podcast on Anchor that will be released there. I talk about scammy behavior, even though it wasn’t in email form, its good to be on guard. Transit App has their new version 5 of their app, and I demo a little bit to show you how it works now. Finally, we bring back the scammy behavior when we talk about an article from Phishlabs entitled Phishing 101: Targeted Phishing Attacks. Our contact information is also available at the end, as well as our public thanks to Anchor. Thanks for listening!


Enjoy!

Tech 286 is now out

Tech 286 is now out. We’re working on anchor, a service I heard about, and found out that the RSS has returned to my server although I still see it as part of the permanent forwarding. In the meantime, you can use the current RSS feed or mixcloud to get your copies. I’m hoping to get this resolved so I can see how things work with it.

Here are the show notes with this show, and thanks for listening!

Welcome to podcast 286 of the technology blog and podcast series with Jared Rimer. On this podcast:

  • Skype gets a repreave as Version 7 is loved by many in the blind and sighted alike. This is because its got global hotkeys that are loved by all. We learn some good news from Michael in Indiana, who lets me know about the Freedom Scientific podcast and from there, we learn that Skype is going to allow us to use Skype verson 7 for the foreseeable future.
  • Very Good Security raises $8.5 million to handle companies’ sensitive data is something that I feel is pretty good news! I normally don’t tweet or talk about these, but I found this one to be promising, and I hope that this company, based in San Francisco, takes the money and really develops this to something great! I want to wish them good luck!
  • Dice world, a game package for the blind and sighted for IOS and Android, released an update. I’m not sure if Android has this yet, but a short demo showing you the newest feature, a daily bonus for taking your first turn for the day. This is going to get interesting. The latest IOS update also has some accessibility fixes as well.
  • This podcast is going through a test bed on anchor.fm. I want to really get off the podcast feed we’re using and have been looking for a replacement for the podcast feeds for some time. Joseph from Illinois mentioned it on passing, someone else mentioned it to me, and I decided to take a look. After a user error which caused firefox to crash, I was able to upload an episode or two, although as part of importing, I had to move my current feed from where it is to Anchor. While I turned off the redirect so they can look at an issue that I am having, I’ll currently upload to both feeds while we figure out the best route to get this to work as importing needs something I can’t do. I also ask for your feedback if you’ve used it, and I hope to hear from users pro and con. Nothing is set in stone, and we’ll see how things go.
  • I cross posted this segment to the White Cane Travel podcast, but how do automated voice announcement systems work across the country? While I’ve experienced issues I’m continuing to address, I’m bringing this up as a talking piece. Please leave your thoughts.
  • Teaching time. I get a text message telling me I’ve won millions. New people are coming on the internet, and so now is a good time to do some reminding.
  • Finally, I give muy contact info.

I’m going to learn how this new platform works with the RSS feed, because I’ve always had issues with the show notes where it comes to links, and how much content I can put. We’ll see how anchor works, and I appreciate everyone’s support! The podcast is over an hour.

Please go to my web site to find contact info, or feel free to contact me through the contact information through the podcast. See you on another edition of the podcast very soon!

Tech podcast 285

Tech podcast 285 has been up for a little bit now. We’ve been playing with a new RSS service for podcasting, so thats why the delay on the blog.

Once we get this working, than I could get back to a regular thing, so we will make sure to use the same RSS, even if it redirects.

Here are the show notes for today’s program.


This podcast is available through mixcloud, RSS, and through live wire too.

RSS

Hello folks, welcome to podcast 285 for August 29, 2018. On this extended edition of the podcast, we’ve got quite a number of items for you, and the podcast will last you 113 minutes.

  • We start with a demo of Mixcloud. Mixcloud can be considered similar to streaming services like Pandora except they have the advantage of you listening to podcasts. I talk about the web site, demo the app, and the app is interesting but some accessibility issues are present.
  • Stuck in traffic has a series called stuck in traffic. In this segment, Wulf talks about tech support scams. Here’s the youtube link for those who want to watch it.
  • I wish that this could’ve been around to help pout with my dad, but I found a ted talk about artificial intelligence to diagnose disease. Here’s the ted talk video if you want to watch it directly.
  • We’ve also got quite a number of articles that we mention in a news segment.

We hope you enjoy the program as much as I have putting it together.

Here are the show notes for everyone’s perusal, and I look forward to seeing you on another edition of the podcast!


Hello everyone, welcome to podcast 284. This podcast has been in the making for almost a month, but it is well worth the wait. Here’s what I have for you. First, I tell you a story about a gentleman who got kicked off of a phone line, and this gentleman claimed to be an independent artist who isn’t doing anything anymore. The activity that got him kicked off is quite interesting, however, do you believe what he has to say in this story that I give you? Next, a teaching moment. This teaching moment is two stories in one in a related form. Third, Phishing and Social Media, Will it Over Take Email? This article was very insightful. Next, a youtube video: The rapid growth of the Chinese internet — and where it’s headed – Gary Liu which was quite interesting. Next, discussing innocent things that could gleam personal information, which includes a 5 minute segment from Michael in Indiana. Michael in Indiana talks about what types of things he hears about while he helps moderate on a telephone line. My comments on that and contact information are at the end of this podcast which lasts 84 minutes. Thanks for listening, and enjoy!

Hi all,

I’ve seriously neglected this blog and podcast for quite a long time. I’ve read a lot, decided on stuff, and then got involved in other things. Below, please find the show notes for podcast 279 which is now up on our RSS feed for you to download. It’s also on mixcloud as well.


Welcome to podcast 279. This podcast is long awaited, and I need to get back to doing things more promptly. The news here is not so outdated, but I definitely need to work on getting stuff out more timely. Today, I talk about learning a braille transcription program which I’m continuing to learn. Next, do you know about top level domains? ICANN is allowing new TLD’s to be released, and in this article entitled Bad .Men at .Work. Please Don’t .Click published on the 11th of June, talks about several bad domains, over 50 percent of whose URL’s are “bad” and the word bad is in quotes because it needs to be. Finally, since time had elapsed, a compilation of various news items. Each segment is over 20 minutes, but maybe of interest. I’ll try to get more podcasts out more often. Thanks for listening!

Hi all,

The technology podcast, podcast 277 is now up. I know I’ve neglected this blog for quite awhile, and I hope to get right back in to it really soon. Today, I finished up the work on the podcast, and our RSS feed is having a copy of it as well as the mixcloud. Please find below the podcast’s show notes where links may be given.

Welcome to podcast 277 of the technology podcast series with Jared Rimer. Is diction a security risk, especially when it comes to habits as dictating medical and other history that you may text to someone that you feel isn’t a problem? A podcast I heard dealing with the disabled braught this up, and I thought about it. Its quite interesting, and the security experts call this a trade off. Next, we have a 6 part series dealing with cyberland, and its many adventures. F-secure posted this in their youtube channel, and I thought it should be shared. Next, T-Mobile Employee Made Unauthorized ‘SIM Swap’ to Steal Instagram Account is discussed. I’ve also put similar thoughts out on the phone lines. Finally, our contact information. I hope you’ll enjoy the program as much as I have, and I’ll be back soon with another one.

The A.J. Sunday retreat is now up

On the rss feed we talk about our weeks off, and other odds and ends. Here is the show notes for this show.

  • Ever wondered how spammers and telemarketers get ahold of your phone number? This article will explain what goes behind all this and ways to prevent from your number being exposed. You can find this article at Why Your Phone Gets So Many Spam Calls, And How To Stop Them.
  • People like myself like to at times replace certain components of electronics and other items but yet, the fear of breaking the sticker that can possibly void the warranty looms into our minds. Going to the store, or shipping the product back for replacement can be time-consuming and may set one back. This article called Those ‘Void If Broken’ Warranty Stickers Are Actually Illegal. describes how these stickers are illegal and should not be used against us who are capable of rplacing easy to replace parts.
  • Has it ever occurred to you that constant power outages can ultimately take a toll on expensive products, such as your computer, studio mixer and beyond. A recent experience will be talked about and how I solved this issue for future outages. Here is a link to the product I purchased and I hope you find this beneficial. The item I purchased is called CyberPower CP1000PFCLCD PFC Sinewave UPS System, 1000VA/600W, 10 Outlets, AVR, Mini-Tower.
  • Mando gets made fun of in our last segment.
  • Hope you will enjoy today’s show!
