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.

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.

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

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 The news here is not so outdated, but I definitely need to work on getting stuff out more timely.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

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.

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 M

Welcome to tech 272. On this edition, an update to podcast 62, which was done way back in 2008. Our main segment is dealing with NVDA and its remote feature. We talk about how it can be abused and while no damage is done this time, people can get themselves in to trouble. We hope to talk about this more in future podcasts.
UEB, better late than never. Can Augmented reality and tech help with surgeries? Fake handbags are nothing new, but can this type of fake item really funnel crime rings? An interesting ted talk by someone who investigates such things. Also, comments on an article about Alexa being a blindness specific tool. It can help, but it should not be just a blindness tool. Contact info at the end.
Welcome to podcast number 268 for January 15, 2018. On this edition of the program, I talk about a cautionary tale of giving out personal information which I heard on a telephone line where someone gave out the address in which they live. Question: what might happen if you do this? I'll leave it right there. Next, the Kansas swatting incident. Krebs posted two articles which I posted to the blog, and I'll repost them here. 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? Next, I talk about my thoughts on what we might see in the new year and beyond in the security landscape. Finally, we listen to a video in regards to spector and meltdown.
