Its time to talk about the next weekend project and this time I'm talking all about notes apps. Actually, I'm talking about my favorite notes app called Joplin.

DC Talks Podcast Daily - Going mobile without the console - May 7, 2019
After much internal debate I pulled the trigger on a mobile device for my increasing travel. This is the normal process for me: Pick out the most expensive device and slowly talk myself out of it. Research the hell out of a used device and never purchase This time there's a third step in which I actually bought a device! For people on a tight budget spending any money is covered in several layers of guilt. It was incredibly important to me to get a device that covered 90% of my usecase which is why I chose this device for mobile gaming, media, podcasts and more... The Xiomi Redmi Note 7.

DC Talks Podcast Daily - Standing Up for Human Cashiers - May 6, 2019
Week off after traveling for my 9-5 but right back to the deep news and today is all about Walmart and their new A.I. store. This video is all about context and how having cashiers who understand human context. I'm not much of a fan of the Amazon Go cashier-less store but this new concept from Walmart sounds much better. Human to human interaction is what makes or breaks businesses. If you don't trust your people and want to replace them with machines, the problem isn't with your employees... Its management.

The browser wars are back! Firefox rescued the internet from the Internet Explorer takeover in the early aughts. Now its time for it to return and fight the new browswer... Chromium.

I have been sick all week and it was best that I didn't subject you to my nasally voice. But there was so much tech stuff happening this week, particularly around my favorite tech thing... Linux!

DC Talks Podcast Daily - How Portable is Your Data - April 10, 2019
Since the Google Stadia announcement, Google has been ripped for its lack of long-term support for its products. Its clear for me that its not if a product dies but if its data is portable. How easy is it to move to a new service? This isn't exclusive to Google, but the myriad of cloud hosted service providers that try to lock you in.  The question is... Do you own your stack?

DC Talks Podcast Daily - DNA Companies Working With The FBI: That's How They Get You - April 9, 2019
Yesterday's silliness about getting Taco Bell delivered during a fire alarm was fun but today is a serious topic.

DCTP Daily - Weekend Project Time!
Its the end of the week for the podcast and I want to start a new trend. From now on each Thursday I'm going to offer a weekend project to complete. This could be setting up a new server or doing something IRL. Each week this is a chance to come up with something fun to do and a reason to experiment. This week my offering is to set up a self-hosted music streaming server. In my old man rant against paid streaming like Spotify, the only way out is to build my own... With blackjack and hookers.

DCTP Daily - Going All In on Self-Hosted Chat
After SEVERAL weeks of being on a hiatus (finally wrapped the Miami Vice podcast!) I'm back with more hot takes and permanently back for these daily podcasts. To kick things off this week I spent some time over the weekend really thinking about Brian Acton's advice to delete Facebook and really look at my reliance on their apps. Naturally, this lead me to review my usage of WhatsApp and how to diversify myself away from the FAANG services.  Over the weekend I took some time to set up a XMPP/Jabber server with great success! This was a fun way to experiment and I think I'm going to stick with the self-hosted chat, that was incredibly easy to set up.

Give me discs or give me death!
Following up from our conversations last week I take a look at the classic question: Physical or streaming? For me, which is a personal choice, its physical media.  In this episode I defend my position but still see why streaming is so popular. The key in all of it is everyone is allowed to make their own choice. I've gone extended periods without access to the internet, so owning physical copies of things is my preferred method.

7 - The humble library
Everyone is  busy signing up for streaming services and buying ebooks they’ll never  read. You know who’s got your back? The library. You know who doesn’t  judge you? The library. You know where its cool to hang out on the  weekend with free wifi? The mother-freaking library. If  you haven’t been to the library in a few years, its time to go back.  Aside from magical tomes that make you imagine shit that’s not real  (books really are magic) they also have DVD’s and Blu-Rays. Plus, many  have partnered with services that offer streaming music and movies for  free. Of course, just about every library works with the Overdrive app  (which you can sideload to a $30 Amazon Fire tablet, the cheapest of  all devices) with will let you download ebooks and audiobooks.

6 - You Know its free, it has Alf
More and more places are giving away free TV shows and movies as an ad-supported service including IMDB, Roku, Pluto TV (who got recently acquired) and even Plex.  Today I'm taking a look at the high level view of these services and what it means to people without a bank account or credit card. I'm also extremely skeptical of Plex's decision to get into this game. Is there a conflict of interest adding commercial services and a way to host your maybe-illegal personal collection of DVD's?

5 - It's the whole point of cable
Hi pals, I am on the road today so I have a road show. Being on the road has me thinking about streaming services including the plethora of options, cost and of course the KonMari effect on owning versus streaming. All of that is coming up this week. Today I'm taking a deeper look at subscription fatigue. With every service having their own subscriptions and trying to watch everything, should you reconsider signing up for traditional cable?  Also, are you even a cord cutter? In my opinion, cable replacement services doesn't qualify you for the cord cutting club.

4 - Where are all the feature phones?
Last episode of the week and today we're looking at feature phones. Across the world there are many versions of feature phones but its mysteriously difficult to find one here in the US. There are lots of flip phones and even a few Android Go devices. Could a sub-$50 feature phone with Maps, Gmail, WhatsApp and Instagram be useful to people? I think there's a huge market segment that manufacturers are missing out on.

3 - Smarten up my dumb house
At CES there were a number of home assistant devices announced. What caught my eye were devices that adapted dumb devices and added smart assistants.  Today lets discuss how these adapters can make it easier for more people to adopt the tech, get comfortable with it and reduce the amount of obsolete products.  Read more Get more hot takes, deeper dives and inside information on tech and how it connects to humans. obscurednarration.com Blog RSS Get behind the scenes Twitter – @domcorriveau Instagram – @domcorriveau Reviews and more tech news on my YouTube https://www.youtube.com/dominiccorriveau Music “Werq”, “Basic Implosion”, “Meanwhile in Bavaria”, “Pixelland” Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Miami Vice Podcast Back in 1984, Miami Vice changed the TV landscape not only for the  decade, but for generations of police drama’s since.

2 - I love Stories and this is where to put them
Stories were all the rage in 2018. They showed up on all Facebook properties (take that Snapchat!), Skype (don't worry, they're gone now) and even YouTube.  Stories have a place on social media, they're just not being used in the right places. Today I make the case for Stories on Twitter and in group chats.

1 - Read your text messages, you animals
After more than a year away, I'm back with my first podcast episode. This show will air 4x/week (Mon. - Thurs.). To kick off the week lets talk about how many unread text messages y'all have. I toss around a few ideas why there are so many unread notifications on people's screens and try to get to the root of the problem.  Read more Get more hot takes, deeper dives and inside information on tech and how it connects to humans. obscurednarration.com Blog RSS Get behind the scenes Twitter – @domcorriveau Instagram – @domcorriveau Reviews and more tech news on my YouTube  https://www.youtube.com/dominiccorriveau Music “Werq”, “Basic Implosion”, “Meanwhile in Bavaria”, “Pixelland” Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Miami Vice Podcast Back in 1984, Miami Vice changed the TV landscape not only for the  decade, but for generations of police drama’s since.
