Welcome to podcast 329. How can we keep ourselves as safe as possible when databases that companies hold them online? I completeluy understand the aspect of why they need to do so. It isn't possible for them to store it like I do, and its just becoming a problem. A telecom company breached, mongo DB to blame is the blog post referencing this segment. National Cyber Security month is now complete. Why? In this ever changing landscape where everything is online must we have only one month to teach how to be as secure as possible? Please check out my blog post penning this topic: NCSAM is over, shall we stop teaching for my written thoughts on this important topic. Its something we should be discussing, and we should be discussing it all the time. I found an article through dark reading, and instead of covering that, I think we should try to discuss it in a different light whereby we ask how consumers can be safe in this time of major security problems. It isn't just the entity that we shop at that should be the main problem, it is in both things. Merchants need to fix their security, but shoppers need to be careful and some tips are discussed on what we can all good. Dice world has some interesting updates and I tie that in to other games and the accessibility landscape. There is always something to learn and I'm happy to see what happens as we continue to grow.

Welcome to podcast 324 of the technology blog and podcast. On this podcast, we've got two different books that are talked about. The first is one that I've already read, the second is one that I'm going to read and preordered through Amazon. Finally, I've got two articles that I talk about. One is in regards to a school system teaching the parents of their students the dos and don'ts of social media. Finally, an article which wasn't tech related, but yet it was bullying. What would have happened if this turned to online bullying and the same type of injury took place because of some cyberbully(s) who wanted to cause him harm? The only issue is that this child was 8 years of age. All of this, on this edition of the tech podcast.

Welcome to podcast 323 of the technology blog and podcast series. On this podcast, we've got several segments for you. What happens when you have a population of approximately 17 million, a company in Miami, and a potential breach? Ecuador had that happen to them, and there are no rules to keep people safe from cyber attacks or breaches. Blog Post What do you see when you hear or see the words "heat stroke?" It isn't anything to do with the sun, and this I saw while working on the prior podcast. blog post Three items in one, dealing with the company Philmore Productions. Have they learned anything? Two messages and an accompanying blog post on the subject indicate probably not. I'll be caucious and indicate that things better change, or it will more than likely be the end. We'll have to see. Please read the blog post, as well as listen to two messages in his own words. Let me know what you think of this one. In two segments, I cover the transcription course as well as talking about braille in general in regards to paper braille VS display braille. I hope you enjoy the program as much as I have, and thanks for listening!
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PhishingWelcome back to the technology blog and podcast, this is podcast 322 of the continuing series covering everything tech including assistive tech, self driving cars, the security landscape and more. This podcast is packed and even three articles that are on one topic, Phishing. Lets take this opportunity and give you the breakdown of today's program, and I hope you'll consider contacting me with your thoughts and comments on these topics. Philmore Productions has had it bad with the technology as of late. I put a senario in place as a thought piece. Let me know what you think. An unofficial report on assignment 15 was released, where I knew I had to fix some things, and yet I have read everything. Its going to get interesting once I'm ready, and I've sent my official assignment. Still pushing through. A self driving car has had it bad. This isn't the first for this make and model, and I have a hunch that this can be fixed. The strech of highway, according to the article I read, is to blame, where something wasn't fixed, and the car got in to an accident. Multiple cars got in to an accident at the same spot. California highway barrier not repaired before fatal Tesla crash from blog The Technology blog and podcast is the article, and it links to the article of the same name where you can read more. In our Phishing segment, three articles come together with some alarming statistics. Its not going away any time soon. The first article which caps off this segment is entitled Why Social Media is Increasingly Abused for Phishing Attacks. Just take a look at this stat: "In 2018 we found that the abuse of social media increased by near 200%" and if thats not enough, Phishlabs expects this to increase. I am not surprised, and this article is linked to other material. In another article Cybersecurity: 99% of email attacks rely on victims clicking links which means we need to continue to teach. Its OK to be curious, but yet, you should know the signs and we need to make sure we slow down and look at what we're clicking on. Finally, to cap this off, Techwarm, a contributer to the blog, posted What is Phishing: Learn How to Protect Your Company which also links to some things and a great article to boot. All of these articles are put together in a nice package and tied up with a bow. I hope you enjoy this 73 minute podcast. I'd also like to thank Amadeus, maintainer of Live Wire for putting this podcast as a podcast on Live Wire. Besides my show at 2276, people who read the RSS can now subscribe to a board to get the podcast if they wish. That board number is 974, so enjoy your options! Thanks so much for participating, and we'll see you next time!

In the better late than never department, I put podcast 321 together on the 2nd.Welcome to podcast 321 of the technology blog and podcast. In no way am I complaining at all, but I really think that braille transcription software, no matter what you use, should be a tool. When I started lesson 15, discussed in full in the first segment, I found that I seemed very confused. Its not graded yet, and I'm sure I have a few things to correct before my first submission, but I'm confident I'll understand it. This article entitled Transcription software can’t do it all: Even Braille 2000 doesn’t have every possibility is a written aspect, but the first 30 minute segment goes in to an audio detail of the lesson and my confusions. Next, a very interesting ted talk dealing with storing data and DNA. I mention telephone systems including Live Wire, MyTelespace, and Philmore Productions Voice mail as examples of systems that could utalize this if it were to ever happen and how Philmore Productions could do things better and how Live Wire hasn't lost any data because of a different backup routine. No trashing is going on here, but the talk and the recent Philmore Productions news about their data made me think about this a little more. Next, Armando is along with a very interesting talk about the Iphone and how we can utalize it without a home button. I relate an experience with a supervisor of a company when I showed him how Voice Over worked, and he didn't have a home button. Contact info on both sides of the program is given. Thanks for listening!
On this podcast, Sonos, google home, the front door lock, and even a braille transcription update as well. Also, Aira and their announcement of a free 5 minute service which I've utalized and its very efficient.
