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".
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.
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".
Big news requires a big discussion group. That's why we asked Jamie Pauls and Scott Davert to return to the BBQ to talk all things Apple. X, 8, TVs and other acronyms will be mentioned. Also, you won't believe which Qast host defends one particular Apple device or why.
We've talked a bit already about how J.J. has used NVDA with OCR to play some games. And Joe has spoken about Xbox accessibility with Narrator.

The group also talks about the rise of crowd funding in the games sphere, how 3d printing is helping board gaming and how the future of games is going to involve lots of Augmented Reality.
This week's episode is chock full of demos, tips and even an interview. James Boehm stops by to talk about a use for your old canes. Andre Louis also supplies us with an OCR demo for the Mac. Also, hear about the new NVDA and a look at the latest Apple accessory on the market before all that new stuff is announced on September 12th.
Style and fashion might be scary words to some of us who are not fans of clothing shopping. In this week's episode, Ricky Enger stops by to talk about Clothing Subscription Services that might just take the fear of the unknown out of the shopping equation.
