Blind Bargains Qast 84: Curb Cut Equasions
Joe Steinkamp Friday, 02-Dec-2016 3:30 PM ET
This show has something for everyone. There is educational value as we have Pearson on board to talk about math. J.J. demos the Audio Game Hub for your amusement. Also, A Listener submitted tip, more about Google Home and then the show goes to the dogs in the Last Word". This is possibly one of the more diverse programs we've ever done in 84 episodes.
In The News:
Demonstration: Audio Game Hub
You might remember our earlier coverage about the Audio Game Hub app and their very successful Kickstarter endeavor which by the way is still going on if you wish to preorder some cool audio games.
Tip: It's Getting Windy Out There
Thanks to Jesse Tregarthen for sending along this week's Siri tip about how the wind blows. Bonus, you can also ask other Voice Assistants, like Google, this same question to get similar results.
We had several emails stuffed in our Inbox like it was a Turducken at Thanksgiving. Here is the first of three such electronic mails.
thank you so much for the kind words and for the work you do for others. We adore hearing how our listeners are giving back to the community at large!
Next, Gregg Hayes writes in about Google Home.
Joe notes that there are a few home automation options that might be used as Google home supports the Samsun Smart Things line up at launch. Between that, and IFTT support, you might be able to roll your own solution. But Joe admits that he would have to investigate more into that to be sure. Plus, it is quite possible that future support is still on the way to the Google Home without having to do so much heavy technical lifting. Joe already has a pretty long, and possibly expensive, wish list of things to still connect and test with the Google home. So stay tuned.
Lastly, for this week, Carla Davis asks us about another device in the ever growing pile of things you can purchase from Best Buy that will talk right out of the box... maybe.
Believe it or not, but even the BBQ Gadget Guy does not have one of these units. nor do any of our BBQ Regulars own a Fire TV. However, Amazon does have a dedicated page for Voice View for Fire TV and it is the first place we suggest to begin to look.
Also, if you did not hear our CSUN interview with peter Korn from Amazon Accessibility, you can do so by clicking this very link.
Simon says; walk the dog in this week's "last Word.
Next week we discuss Apple Watches and Fitbits. The perfect show for those wanting to get a jump on breaking their annual New Year's resolution for exercise is walking on a treadmill towards you.
