Blind Bargains Qast 36: Blue Light Surface
Joe Steinkamp Friday, 16-Oct-2015 9:08 PM ET
The last of the big tech events has concluded with Microsoft taking a bit of a victory lap. J.J., Joe and Rodney Edgar dive into the hardware portions of the MS talk then broaden out their conversation to compare these announcements against the earlier news from Google and Apple. Along the way we'll have the usual features; "Last Word", "Sound Off" and much more in episode 36 of the BBQ!
This episode is brought to you by HIMS, who would like to remind you that "Your needs are our solutions". Check out the E-Bot Video Magnifier, the Blaze EZ reading solution, the new Smart Beetle Braille Display and more by visiting the HIMS website. Or, follow them on Twitter.
In The News:
RT @lordjeff Google should be applauded for finally releasing the latest talkback source code
Discussion topic: Microsoft Hardware Event 2015
the interest in Windows 10, as we noted in BB Qast episode 3, propelled Microsoft into the tech spotlight again. However, that was January and Windows 10 is now in general availability. Is there still anything to look forward to from the company post Xbox One and Windows 10? We'll delve into that concept and explore how this event compares to the others we've seen in the last two months. Some of the articles we'll mention during this portion of the program can be found in the list below.
Unbeknownst to us, and to our chagrin, DTNS also covered this topic on a recent podcast. And by recent we mean it was recorded on the same day as ours. The very definition of "great minds" and the need for a podcast topic eh?
Gordon wrote in with a suggestion about sports. By the way, due to the recent performances of sports teams in both Houston and Detroit, joe and J.J. might not be talking about sports for a while.
Several listeners commented on last week's story about a woman who purposely blinded herself. We recognize that this is a very devisive and controversial story for many of our audience. Here is one such comment from a long time listener of the show.
Discs, bits and tapes make up the bulk of this week's odd inhabitants of the "Last Word".
We are still interested in what our listeners like to read, listen to or dress up as for Halloween. Drop your thoughts into the Comment section below. Or, send us one of those electronic mails to firstname.lastname@example.org
