Blind Bargains Qast 58: The Ace Of Space
Joe Steinkamp Friday, 15-Apr-2016 2:00 PM ET
We're finally, and properly, back in the studio for a regular normal ordinary show this week. That isn't to say that our content is run of the mill however. We have Scott with a look at a new Amazon product, a tip for iOS, the Last Word" and more CSUN audio. no wait, um, we mean we have some last bit of CSUN audio from our sponsor HIMS up on the site this week. Namely, we have the first and second of their two CSUN presentations.
Go make it happen with GoVision, the new transportable video magnifier from HIMS. With goVision you get all you'd expect from a transportable read, write and distance video magnifier with optical character recognition, plus the ability to enlarge and customize files, photos or videos from your cell phone, tablet or computer. Look at a slideshow of pictures from your vacation right from your thumb drive. Bring the world into focus with GoVision.
For more information, call us at 888-520-4467 or visit us on the web at http://www.hims-inc.com.
HIMS. Lifestyle Innovation.
In The News:
Demonstration: The Amazon Dot
In the latest versions of iOS 9.1x, you can now do a four finger swipe to switch between open apps. Simply place four fingers on the screen vertically, then swipe left or right on an open app.
We want to thank all of you for posting our links, re-tweeting and sharing on various platforms our CSUN coverage and our April Fools CSUN coverage. We make this show for our community. and we enjoy that you enjoy what we do. Without all of you, we would not... okay could not... do the show. So keep sending in your feedback, comments, tweets, likes, dislikes and submissions to the BB Qast!
From the Emails:
And from Twitter:
And a couple about our April 1 show.
the following came to Joe from a comment he made about Ricky considering retirement for her Guide Dog. This is an excerpt from the email that mentions something that came up on the tech radar, however, it got lost in all the CSUN talk.
Thanks Ron for sending that along and for jostling our memory about this technology. if we missed any other stories, post them in the comments below or send them along to email@example.com please.
This may seem a bit confusing. Joe has audio links and J.J. has a story that remotely involves food. Must be all that California sun they absorbed last month playing havoc on who submits what.
next week, more news and another interview. And soon we shall visit another Galaxy. Except this one will NOT! involve placing microphones in a shower. Sorry... we can only void so many warranties a year around here.

Hi. I need to respectfully disagree with JJ on one thing. he said that Windows 10 is the only operating system where you can't take a computer out of the box and totally set it up independently without sight. while I'm sure that would be the case if you built your own computer and had to totally install windows on it yourself, I have to tell you that it is not the case if you buy a computer from a manufacturer, such as Dell or Lenovo. I bought a Lenovo laptop from amazon about a month ago. Neither my husband or I have enough sight to be able to see a computer screen. I turned on the computer, and after what I thought was an appropriate length of time, I pressed windows-enter to bring up narrator. narrator did come up talking, and I was able to go through all of the registration and setup of the machine without any sighted assistance whatsoever. I used narrator up until I got JAWS installed and talking. one thing I did do ahead of time was copy the JAWS installation file to a thumb drive so that I could easily access and start the installer, as I didn't want to try downloading it with narrator. other than that, however, I really have to say that I had absolutely no trouble setting up a new machine with Windows 10 totally independently without any sight.
