J.J. and Joe discuss some of the highlights of this Windows refresh and J.J. even has a tip that is Windows related to boot.

Blind Bargains Qast 158: When the Visperos Go Back To Capistrano



It has been a long time since the week s A.T. news monopolized an episode s runtime. Yet that is what we have with information rolling in like a story-laden freight train heading towards the news section at breakneck speed. That means that our demo and tip sections are a bit shorter. And we still have Sound Off plus the week s weirdness with the Last Word .

But first Remember you can take a short survey about our podcast by heading to this link
Filling out the survey will put you in the running for a Google Home Mini. The drawing will take place during our October Google Hardware Event show. Your answers, and participation, help shape the BBQ. So, please take a moment and let us know how we may plan out the future.

Blind Bargains Qast 154: The A-Lady



For many years we ve held back about talking sports. Well, thanks to Brian Fischler

Blind Bargains Qast 153: Allstar Duck Triathlon

to hop into the studio to discuss the matters of the week. David Bradburn, longtime friend of the show, returns to talk about Video Magnifiers and his recent international travel exploits. Jamie has a tip; a fellow podcaster sends in a letter for "Sound Off" and a bit of audio Tom Foolery rounds out things in the "Last Word".

It's not just another radio station, check out MCBVI Radio.


Just recently MCBVI Radio undertook the boldest step yet in attempting to differentiate ourselves from the thousands of internet radio stations that are out there by offering a brand-new show. Becky and I could not think of a name for the show so it is currently called The No Name Show, With Him & Her. Him and Her are myself, Dave Gordon, and Rebecca Kooistra. Of course, we play the music that you want to hear but we also take your phone calls as we talk about blindness issues. By the time this is published, this will have included: your independence as a blind person, abandonment as a young child when sent away to a residential school, Type 1 diabetes, and much more. This week's topic is RP (Retinitis Pigmentosa). We started the show by offering a several part series, which was sort of a modern-day soap opera. This ongoing saga went on for several weeks. It ended with Becky and Dave languishing in prison after Dave accidently shot Thad and Rebecca smuggled a gun into Dave inside of a chocolate cake. MCBVI President John Jarzyna pardoned both of them so they could attend the MCBVI State Convention. You can listen to The No Name Show With Him & Her every Tuesday from 6:00 to 8:00 PM Eastern time on www.mcbviradio.com. We are also available on your Amazon Echo. Simply enable the MCBVI Radio skill and when you hear Stevie Wonder welcoming you to MCBVI Radio, you know you've come to the right place. Remember, From Christian to Smooth Jazz, progressive rock, and much more, it is MCBVI Radio, www.MCBVIRadio.com
