Blind Bargains Qast 81: Everything Is Awesome
Joe Steinkamp Saturday, 12-Nov-2016 8:57 PM ET
Turkey and stuffing are right around the corner. So why not have some good comfort food for the ears as well? this episode features the second portion of our interview with the delightful Ginny Owens. Along with that, there are the usual suspects like Sound Off", the "Last Word" and J.J. with a Mac tip of all things.
In The News:
Interview: Ginny Owens Part 2
We bring you the second part of our interview with singer Ginny Owens this week with discussions about Braille Music and giving back to those in need. Ginny's new album is called "Love Be The Loudest" and it will debut on iTunes November 18th. If you have enjoyed these interviews, and have ideas about where Ginny can help others through her music and outreach, write her at email@example.com
Tip: Is my Mac on yet?
You may have heard that the beloved, or at least iconic, Mac chime has been removed beginning with 2016 editions of the device. Fear not though, because you can reenable it with the following command.
A lot of time goes into the show prep on a big tech event. We watch the event, we read all those articles in show notes and we might even revisit our conversations from prior episodes to see if there was a pattern emerging from event's past. Joe tends to drive the mainstream talk while J.J. is the conversation starter for an A.T. perspective normally. However, if you listen carefully, those roles may change if one of us feels strongly about a particular feature. We do not plan that out, we prefer not to discuss the event before we record, so what you hear is truly a spur of the moment discussion.
Next, Charlie writes in about food delivery.
Uber eats, Seamless, Eat 24, Postmates and Grub Hub might not have arrived in your area just yet. But local services, like those mentioned above by Charlie, may already be moving boxes of styrofoam goodness to your home. You might want to ask your local eating establishments if they are a part of any of these programs on a national, or local level, because apps like these are hitting critical mass in most of the larger cities in the U.S. and it sure is nice to have something else that delivers beyond pizza.
A cute family story set in the 80s makes a fun read this week.
Episode 82 is a bit of a homecoming of sorts. The Gadget Guy returns to join the conversation about Google Home and Amazon Alexa. There might even be a little talk about the one-year anniversary of Narrator on Xbox One. Until then, have a great week everyone!
