Blind Bargains Qast 50: The Golden Bowl
Joe Steinkamp Thursday, 04-Feb-2016 1:39 PM ET
Joe is back from traveling, however, J.J. is not. Never to worry though, thanks to our Audio Master Patrick, you will hear J.J. from the creature comforts of a hotel room from an undisclosed location -- that isn't ATIA 2016. No really, it isn't. This week's show was recorded before that event. So the news this week is kind of light. We do have a product review, "Sound Off" and "Last Word" on tap. Plus a quick tip.
In the News:
Product Review: Nomad Pod Pro
Jenine Stanley is back to tell us about an accessory that might just come in handy for those Apple Watch owners who need a recharge on the go. The Nomad Pod Pro is a USB-enabled charger that can charge an iPhone 6, or later, and Apple Watches. The small battery looks like a hockey puck and it can give your Apple Watch a boost when you drape it alongside the device. The battery is estimated to give an Apple Watch two charges. meaning, if you charged your watch at home before you left, you might be able to go 3 days before needing to charge both the watch and this battery again. To learn more about this unit visit the Nomad site.
Tip: That Theme is Classic
It's 2016, but sometimes changing your Windows theme can still help in screen reading or magnification performance. Joe explains in this weeks' tip.
Several people commented on the "CAPTCHA Be Gone" service from Accessible Apps,
We speculated just a bit about the Freedom Scientific/Optelec deal in episode 48. Kevin writes in with a very important distinction about the company that is responsible for the merger of these two Assistive Technology giants.
thanks for that Kevin, and it does frame that story in a whole new light!
We had a really cool interview with Marty Schultz of Blindfold Games in episode 49 and our contest to win a free iOS game from said company is going on right now. To enter, go to [this contest page]((https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Vc7ZV-BloTWXAnBrWpUT0jhkTFAVA41iDqIH6WE_i2I/viewform) and fill out the form.
Next week, if all goes well, Jamie Pauls and Shelly Brizbin will stop by to tell us all about their time in Florida and ATIA 2016. And if things don't go well, um, we'll think of something... not sure what that is but everyone will find out in episode 51 of the Blind Bargains Qast.
