Tech podcast 329

Tech podcast 329 has been out, and I believe I’ve neglected the blog. I believe I released it last week, and I apologize for not posting!

I’vll have some big news to share after I do some more development on one of my web sites I may have talked about. Enough of that for now, the RSS and mixcloud should have the podcast.

Below, please find the show notes for this podcast. Truly sorry for the fact I didn’t post it when it was published!

More later.


Released November 5, 2019

Welcome to podcast 329.

  • How can we keep ourselves as safe as possible when databases that companies hold them online? I completeluy understand the aspect of why they need to do so. It isn’t possible for them to store it like I do, and its just becoming a problem. A telecom company breached, mongo DB to blame is the blog post referencing this segment.
  • National Cyber Security month is now complete. Why? In this ever changing landscape where everything is online must we have only one month to teach how to be as secure as possible? Please check out my blog post penning this topic: NCSAM is over, shall we stop teaching for my written thoughts on this important topic. Its something we should be discussing, and we should be discussing it all the time.
  • I found an article through dark reading, and instead of covering that, I think we should try to discuss it in a different light whereby we ask how consumers can be safe in this time of major security problems. It isn’t just the entity that we shop at that should be the main problem, it is in both things. Merchants need to fix their security, but shoppers need to be careful and some tips are discussed on what we can all good.
  • Dice world has some interesting updates and I tie that in to other games and the accessibility landscape. There is always something to learn and I’m happy to see what happens as we continue to grow.
  • Michelle Dyer was a dear friend of mine. I let the domain go because I was under the assumption that the domain was not needed. Family contacted her closest friend, contacted me, and I’ve relaunched the domain on October 31st. Due to some other technical issues I could not fix, the domain is now relaunched and I only made some changes to clean some outdated info. Please click on this link to go to the Michelle Dyer Memorial page where you’ll find tech podcasts to download that she was a part of. We thank each and everyone for your continued support of my work.

The track I selected for this podcast comes from the artist Ehren Starks from the depths of a Year. Contact information is also available at the end of the program. Thanks so much for listening!


Thanks for your understanding while I try and catch up!

Tech podcast 327 for October 27, 2019

Hello folks,

Welcome to podcast 3247of the tech podcast. I have quite a bit for you.

Let me start by saying that on Segment 3, I am not looking for a replacement solution on the braille transcription course, I’m only looking for feedback. You’ll understand why when you hear the segment.

If anything is to be done, it will be a long term project, not a short term solution to something I feel that needs to be done.

With that, I want to give you the podcast, and it’ll be soon on Mixcloud as it is on audio RSS already.

Thanks so much for listening and here’s the show notes.


Welcome to podcast 327 for October 27, 2019.

  • What do you think about giving out or phone numbers? I’m not talking about business, I’m talking about phone numbers for personal use. I heard this on a telephone line on a bulletin board, and got to thinking.
  • VPN services is the next topic. I’m looking at express vpn as they were talked about on a prior post on the blog through tech warm. My thoughts are on this one.
  • I’m putting a feeler out there. On this third segment, I’m curious on your thoughts on the braille transcription course as a whole. I know I have had some struggles, but i’m curious on other people who have taken the course or are still taking it with me. Contact me by email for a phone call, as I’d like to discuss it with you.
  • Cachet Financial Reeling from MyPayrollHR Fraud is the next segment and the article is linked here. What an interesting story here.
  • Best Practices for Defanging Social Media Phishing Attacks is the final segment and lots of terms given here and info. This could be put under the NCSAM category as the cyber security awareness month is coming to an end.

Please feel free to contact me on the podcast contact info given, and I look forward in hearing from you!

Tech podcast 324: two books of interest, and two articles of interest

Podcast 324 is now out, and I hope each and every one of you can get it. RSS and Mixcloud will have the cast. It is also available on my show on Live Wire and the bulletine board 974 ill have it as well.


Welcome to podcast 324 of the technology blog and podcast. On this podcast, we’ve got two different books that are talked about. The first is one that I’ve already read, the second is one that I’m going to read and preordered through Amazon. Finally, I’ve got two articles that I talk about. One is in regards to a school system teaching the parents of their students the dos and don’ts of social media. Finally, an article which wasn’t tech related, but yet it was bullying. What would have happened if this turned to online bullying and the same type of injury took place because of some cyberbully(s) who wanted to cause him harm? The only issue is that this child was 8 years of age. All of this, on this edition of the tech podcast.

One thing I should mention is that Scott’s book is available on Amazon as a non-kindle purchase, Kindle will be released October 1. He offered to send me a released copy, but since I can’t read print, I’ll wait for the digital version. Thanks Scott for offering to send it, it was appreciated. Thanks for reading the notes, and feel free to leave those comments! Contact information is available at the end of each and every podcast.

The RSS feed now has the audio of this podcast. Its dated the 19th, however, I am only getting a chance to put it up now.

Below, please find the show notes, which link to several blog posts as of late. Thanks so much for listening!


Welcome to podcast 323 of the technology blog and podcast series. On this podcast, we’ve got several segments for you.

  • What do you see when you hear or see the words “heat stroke?” It isn’t anything to do with the sun, and this I saw while working on the prior podcast. blog post
  • Three items in one, dealing with the company Philmore Productions. Have they learned anything? Two messages and an accompanying blog post on the subject indicate probably not. I’ll be caucious and indicate that things better change, or it will more than likely be the end. We’ll have to see. Please read the blog post, as well as listen to two messages in his own words. Let me know what you think of this one.

Technology podcast 322: Philmore and tech gone bad, a self driving car incident, braille transcription, and Phishing

We’re packed on today’s edition of the podcast. Its up on the RSS feed for you to go and get.


Welcome back to the technology blog and podcast, this is podcast 322 of the continuing series covering everything tech including assistive tech, self driving cars, the security landscape and more. This podcast is packed and even three articles that are on one topic, Phishing. Lets take this opportunity and give you the breakdown of today’s program, and I hope you’ll consider contacting me with your thoughts and comments on these topics.

  • Philmore Productions has had it bad with the technology as of late. I put a senario in place as a thought piece. Let me know what you think.
  • An unofficial report on assignment 15 was released, where I knew I had to fix some things, and yet I have read everything. Its going to get interesting once I’m ready, and I’ve sent my official assignment. Still pushing through.
  • A self driving car has had it bad. This isn’t the first for this make and model, and I have a hunch that this can be fixed. The strech of highway, according to the article I read, is to blame, where something wasn’t fixed, and the car got in to an accident. Multiple cars got in to an accident at the same spot. California highway barrier not repaired before fatal Tesla crash from blog The Technology blog and podcast is the article, and it links to the article of the same name where you can read more.
  • In our Phishing segment, three articles come together with some alarming statistics. Its not going away any time soon. The first article which caps off this segment is entitled Why Social Media is Increasingly Abused for Phishing Attacks. Just take a look at this stat: “In 2018 we found that the abuse of social media increased by near 200%” and if thats not enough, Phishlabs expects this to increase. I am not surprised, and this article is linked to other material. In another article Cybersecurity: 99% of email attacks rely on victims clicking links which means we need to continue to teach. Its OK to be curious, but yet, you should know the signs and we need to make sure we slow down and look at what we’re clicking on. Finally, to cap this off, Techwarm, a contributer to the blog, posted What is Phishing: Learn How to Protect Your Company which also links to some things and a great article to boot. All of these articles are put together in a nice package and tied up with a bow.

I hope you enjoy this 73 minute podcast. I’d also like to thank Amadeus, maintainer of Live Wire for putting this podcast as a podcast on Live Wire. Besides my show at 2276, people who read the RSS can now subscribe to a board to get the podcast if they wish. That board number is 974, so enjoy your options! Thanks so much for participating, and we’ll see you next time!

Tech podcast 321

The RSS feed has this podcast I just uploaded Completed on the 2nd, i’m posting it late. Its all good.


Welcome to podcast 321 of the technology blog and podcast. In no way am I complaining at all, but I really think that braille transcription software, no matter what you use, should be a tool. When I started lesson 15, discussed in full in the first segment, I found that I seemed very confused. Its not graded yet, and I’m sure I have a few things to correct before my first submission, but I’m confident I’ll understand it. This article entitled Transcription software can’t do it all: Even Braille 2000 doesn’t have every possibility is a written aspect, but the first 30 minute segment goes in to an audio detail of the lesson and my confusions. Next, a very interesting ted talk dealing with storing data and DNA. I mention telephone systems including Live Wire, MyTelespace, and Philmore Productions Voice mail as examples of systems that could utalize this if it were to ever happen and how Philmore Productions could do things better and how Live Wire hasn’t lost any data because of a different backup routine. No trashing is going on here, but the talk and the recent Philmore Productions news about their data made me think about this a little more. Next, Armando is along with a very interesting talk about the Iphone and how we can utalize it without a home button. I relate an experience with a supervisor of a company when I showed him how Voice Over worked, and he didn’t have a home button. Contact info on both sides of the program is given. Thanks for listening!

Tech podcast 318

Welcome to the tech podcast, this is show 318. I’ll be in the process of reloacting, so this may be the last podcast until the relocation is complete. I’m hopeful that the relocating process will go well, and I’ll be available through contact methods mentioned throughout the program should you have questions and concerns.

<

ul>

  • We talk about URL shorteners. Cutt.us and similar services can be a target of spam. This service, along with a couple of others, allow the visitor to report suspicious links. These services allow the shortening of long URL links to shorten one for sharing. Reporting suspicious URL’s may be a start, but I’m going to try and get recaptcha on one of my biggest sites to see if it can curve this problem.
  • In segment 2, we finish the talking of shorteners by talking briefly about another service similar to the one I link above, and then we demonstrate braille 2000’s grade relaxer. This particular part of the application was already working, but some accessibility fixes were made, and with the beta, I present to you how the relaxer can be used in a classroom setting.
  • We take a song break. In the last segment, we had relaxed Gokul Salvadi to demo how this is done. I thought the music would be perfect to play one track, and you can leave your thoughts.
  • Finally, Equifax and Myspace are back in the news. When Myspace Was King, Employees Abused a Tool Called ‘Overlord’ to Spy on Users from blog The Technology blog and podcast | <a href=”Former Equifax exec sentenced to 4 months in prison for insider trading related to data breach
  • Our contact information is at the end of the program. I’m hoping that the relocating process goes well for me, and if something big comes out, I’ll do my best to get it out quickly. If not, then I’ll be back once I’m settled in. Thanks for listening, and thanks for your continued support.

    Tech podcast 317

    Tech podcast 317 is now out on the RSS feed. I’m not sure if we covered the braille transcription software with grade relaxer in the segment with Braille 2000, but if I did not, I plan to do so in a future podcast. I link to it in the show notes, thinking I did, but I know I covered other stuff with the software which was minor accessibility stuff with the speech aspect of things.

    In any case, Braille 2000’s segment is short, but we’ve got a bunch of other stuff that is covered, including a very interesting article Phishlabs has in regards to the phishing sites themselves being more secured than years past.

    Below, please find the show notes, and thanks so much for listening to the podcast!

Here is the Braille 2000 category that you can link to on the blog. It is the entire history of what I’ve been up too with Bob. We may have talked about this, but there are other odds and ends we tlak about if this was not talked about in this segment. If not, and you want me to cover it in detail, I can do that. The segment is Braille 2000 where we are at this point.
    • Jaws gets an update that fixes a major bug in Adobe. It also fixes other odds and ends as well, not just that. blog post for those who need it.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
