Blind Bargains Qast 217: Buttery Smooth Bingo Cards



In order to be more environmentally friendly, we at the BBQ decided to combine our October and November Apple event wrap up shows. It is the podcasting equivalent of removing the charger plug from the box. Okay, seriously, we changed things up a bit and invited Greg Stilson on to talk about the new Macs and iPhones. Greg has launched a few products over the years, and we thought he could speak at longer length about what it takes to do that than J.J. and Joe could. Plus, he brings along the bonus of saying a bunch of new stuff that you have not heard from us on the many hours of wrap up shows we have done in the past. And to borrow an Apple turn of phrase, we think you re going to love it .

Hindsight Is #CSUNATC20: Or, How The Top Stories Of The Past Can Shape The Future



Long time readers, and listeners of the podcast, know that the staff are now deep in the process of planning out our event and convention coverage for the year. CSUN, Google i/o, WWDC and the summer Blindness conventions are some of the annual happenings that capture our attention as we follow the yearly migratory pattern of possible A.T. related topics on their unpredictable flight plans. While a Farmer s Almanac for tech would help, we do consult our articles and interviews from the past to help us guess what might make good content during these planning stages.

Blind Bargains Qast 104: WWDZZZZ



J.J., Joe and Scott (who came up with the episode title during our live tweeting of this event) sit down to discuss what was shown in Apple's 2017 WWDC Keynote. New hardware and some insights into what is in store for iOS 11 takes center stage in our conversation. However, we widen our scope to talk about Apple Watch and that "one more thing" everyone knew was coming. So stick your Air Pods in... it is an Applecentric BBQ.

The Apple Rundown: The Command Triple Click Home Edition



September 19th seems so long ago.
Back in those halcyon days of a month and a half ago, when I knew another Apple event was on the horizon, I mused that I would have little to post other than the iPod turning 15 years old. Maybe a few articles on the new mac OS would be in order. And, if it made the street date, I'd have some things to post about iOS 10.1. Sure, there would be the 4th quarter earnings report to ponder. And I'd end the article with something funny in regards to the headphone jack.

then 2016 happened with its ability to upend everything you know and expect in a rational universe.

Blind Bargains Qast 44: Recursive Pizza



We're going to be honest this week. The news and the middle of the show came together quite organically and "in the moment". Okay, that is our stylish way of saying we had no idea what the show was going to actually have in store for us, and for you the listener, until we discussed things in the studio. and, despite that little lack of planning, the result ain't half bad. See, we still have news, a look at some games Joe can't completely recommend, a tip plus "Sound Off" and "Last Word". We won't be making this style choice a regular habit, however it's nice to have a "fly by the seat of our pants" show land during the holiday season.

The Apple Rundown: The iPhone 7 Is Only 11 Months Away Edition



So you updated all the iDevices to iOS 9.02, the Macs all have OS 10.11 downloading, and you just unsubscribed from Apple Music. With all that done, and no new Apple TV to buy just yet,
what is an Apple fanboy or fangirl to do? I mean we are still like six months away from a second version of the Apple timepiece and only a short 11 months before we know all about the iPhone 7 through all the rumor sites. Dark days my friends are now upon us... dark days indeed. I guess we'll just have to pass the time with a metric ton of information, tip articles and those odd Apple related stories we find in the Apple Rundown.

Blind Bargains Qast 31: Does it Work With Voiceover?



Recorded just mere hours after the big Apple Event on September 9th, Joe brings in the big guns to talk about everything iDevice with Buddy Brannan and BBQ Regular Shelly Brizbin.
We've tossed the weekly news line up aside and dedicated the bulk of the show to our "Discussion Topic". Well, that and the "Last Word". With J.J. off this week, does that mean a food mention at the end of the show? uh, probably.

Blind Bargains Qast 30: Autotune The Moos

And, not just because J.J. is on vacation this week, the news cycle this week is bigger than usual as many celebrate the 25th birthday of the ADA.

Blind Bargains Qast 24: N, F or C?



Dave Williams joins J.J. and Joe on a raucous journey through the stories not covered yet by BBQ due to our massive amount of audio coverage from the 2015 summer convention season.

The Weekly Apple Rundown: Happy Birthday iPad Edition

Blind Bargains Qast 9: Functional, Decorative And Inclusive BBQ



What's in a name? Quite a lot, actually. For Superman and mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent, it can define who he is and what he does depending on which persona he has adopted at any given time.
For Clint Eastwood and the classic Speghetti Westerns, the man with no name" signified that the movie's protagonist was powerful beyond a simple label or surname. Thanks to our amazing listeners, and their helpful comments on a recent survey, our little series has a moniker that not only rolls off the tongue easily, and trust us that helps in podcasting a lot, but it can mean a great many things when you hear it spoken. With that said, and thanks to Alex Hall for the suggestion, we are delighted to bring you episode 9 of the Blind Bargains Qast ... or BBQ!

Apple Rundown: The Apple Edition Edition



It's a post Apple event week and we're going to examine how the Kool Aid buzz wore off faster than expected in the press. So I'm warning everyone upfront that this week's links will be more negative than positive, as the stock market analogy of buying and selling on hype applies to what gets clicks for Apple news stories. Except in the rumor department that is... Pink iPhones anyone? Yeah, that might be a thing now that gold is starting to lose its luster.

The Weekly Apple Rundown: Spring Forward Edition



Let's see... there was the official return of VLC to the iOS app store, iAssociate saw some updates and, oh I know, some small mention of an event in March for news this past week. An event I say? Yeah, nothing major I'm sure considering that we have a launch of a new product in April. I doubt anyone will be covering it really. But, and this is a mighty big but, if you are interested in hearing Tim and co go on and on about time pieces you will want to catch the stream of the event on March 9th at 10 AM PT.

The Weekly Apple Rundown: Apple Pay It Forward Edition



The Weekly Apple Rundown: Apple Pay It Forward Edition

It is a darn good thing I'm not held to a hard deadline on this series. No really, it is, as putting this week's look at Tim and Jony's exploits into focus was a continuing saga with more happening every day ... y'know, like a little franchise from a galaxy far, far away. More on how that reference fits in this week's stories later on.
