Technology podcast 279 is now up

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 The news here is not so outdated, but I definitely need to work on getting stuff out more timely.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.


Thanks so much for listening!

  • 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.

Podcasts released on the network

There were two podcasts released on the network that effect this blog.

The Technology podcast, podcast 274 which you can find on the tech RSS feed is the first to go to my mixcloud page. I’ll talk more about mix cloud later, but we have it on passing on this podcast. Here are the show notes for this podcast, which is numbered 274.


Welcome to podcast 274. Are you familiar with how someone who would get dressed could do it if they have a disability that prevents them from doing it on their own? A very powerful ted talk will talk about this, in what I’d call the low tech segment. Are you familiar with Philmore Productions? A customer gives me a file that was posted to one of their bulletine boards, and asks some questions. This 33 minute segment talks about my thoughts on the file, and it is not looking good. I’ll let you listen to the segment and decide this on your own, but I call this my thought piece. Next, have you mistyped domains? We all have. In an article pened by Brian Krebs entitled Omitting the “o” in .com Could Be Costly gives some insites that I talk about. Finally, I started a Mix Cloud page and I DISCUSS this site a little bit. All of this and contact information is all at the end. I hope you’ll enjoy the podcast, and thanks for listening!


Also, The A.J. Sunday Retreat is also up. Its RSS can be found through jaredrimer.net just like the tech podcast is. This podcast is a music and talk show as we discussed when I braught it along, and there is some tech for this podcast.

Here are the show notes for that podcast if you wish to review them.

We will focus our attention on an article in which an executive from Toyota claims that self-driving cars will kill hundreds, while at the same time saving thousands. The article can be found at: Self-driving cars could kill hundreds but save tens of thousands
  • Herbie has expressed intrest in the subject of Amazon providing Prime Membership discounts to those who are receiving government aid such as Medicare. Despite arguments of opponents stating that even though Amazon has made such move to provide discounts, people who are low-income will not shop online regardless. can this be true? This article can be found at: Amazon Offers Prime Discount for Medicaid Recipients
  • In 2014, gun rights in Iowa have been extended to grant the ability for blind people to keep and bear arms. This in turn has law enforcement scratching their heads. What are we talking about? This article, which can be found at: Iowa grants gun permits to the blind talks about the good and bad in relation to blind people being able to carry a gun. Can this be a good or bad thing? Stay tuned as we discuss this and more on the show.

Talking technology and security, podcast 4

Podcast 4 of the talking tech and security show is now up. Go to our RSS feed to pick up your copy.


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.

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.
