Blind Bargains Qast 122: The Keepsake Edition

J.J. is recording from a mystery spot in New Jersey this week. Joe is no longer distracted by illness nor baseball. That means there is a user-requested discussion about grocery shopping in the cards for the middle portion of the episode. But don't worry, as a live tip, the "Last Word" and an amazing email arrived for "Sound Off".

Blind Bargains Qast 121: Palindromes

The news is always the portion of the program we can never predict from week to week. Surprises are always welcome and this time is no exception. It is a good thing that Brian Fischler dropped by to give us a few chuckles and a primer on "Laugh For Sight" because it definitely adds some levity to the proceedings. We also have a tip, a brief "Sound Off" and a BBQ first in the "Last Word".

Program Note:

A beloved member of just about every part of the Blindness Community passed away recently. Chris @toonhead Skarstad was one of those unique people you rarely encounter in life. He had the uncanny ability to provide a supportive comment, a kind message or a well thought out constructive remark for just about any situation. We will miss you greatly and so will others as demonstrated by this moving thread over at Apple Vis. RIP Toony...
Sad news to report

Blind Bargains Qast 120: The Doughnut On The Desk

This is one of those times where we get to talk about actual new hardware with said hardware actually on hand. Joe has the new Google Home mini in the office and J.J. asks him questions about the little round Google Assistant. Jay Forry also returns to talk about the 5 films that turned out not to be good from the summer movie season. And then we get into the spirit of "All Hallow's Eve" in the "Last Word". So get that bowl of trick or treat candy, you know the good stuff you aren't giving out to the neighbors, as we will commune with the week's ghostly news and ghoulish access technology.

Blind Bargains Qast 119: The Nighttime, Sniffling, Sneezing, Stuffy-Head, Fever, so you can Rest Qast

J.J. reports from a remote location and Joe is on autopilot due to the first school year based family sickness. But that didn't stop either of them from bringing along some topical news, "Sound Off" and a few "Last Words". Jay Forry returns as well to talk about summer movies. Which it just so happens to be a great idea for our two hosts since J.J. is traveling and Joe can barely manage to find the remote option on his Apple Watch.

Blind Bargains Qast 118: Thin Mint TV

The fun of the hardware announcements has died down, for now, with J.J. and Joe finding themselves back with a full slate of news and a demonstration of YouTube TV. We also have a tip, "Sound Off" and a triumphant return of a long-time favorite subject to the "Last Word".

Blind Bargains Qast 117: Another Brick In The Walled Garden

We bring balance to the Force this week with a look at the recent Google Hardware Event. However, Apple Fans, that isn't all we talk about as some of the hardware discussed can connect to iOS as well. We also have "Sound Off", a tip and the craziness that is the "Last Word".

Blind Bargains Qast 116: Pancake Complications Thingy

Apple released new hardware this month with the glass-backed iPhone 8 models and the spiffy Series 3 Apple Watches. BBQ Regular Shelly Brisbin drops by to talk about those objects and give her take on iOS 11. We also have a tip, "Sound Off" and the Last Word" in a very laid back long-form conversational edition of the Blind Bargains Qast.

Blind Bargains Qast 115: Thoughts Of Seeing AI Dog

The new iOS 11 is live and ready to download. Jamie Pauls
and Scott Davert
return to talk about the perils and pitfalls for those who want to install that shiny new OS on their IDevices. We'll also catch up on the news, check in with "Sound Off" and enjoy some Dog Feelings in the "Last Word".

Seeking Web Designer and Hosting Provider for New Radio Station

We desire to start a new internet radio station, wherein we will host, music as well as technology related shows. We are seeking a web designer for our station's website, as well as a hosting provider to host email lists, as well as either an icecast or shoutcast server for the licensed radio station we would like to bring online in January or February. WE are also seeking interested broadcasters as well. Please contact us if there is interest in any of these three options, as we really wish to create a viable station with no adult content that truly has lots of programming and offers a lot of variety for everyone's listening pleasure.
