Well we’ve got another birthday coming up. And that has caused this to fall behind once again. Not that this was a bad meeting; this was a great meeting. We covered a vast array of topics and talked way too long. Here are some (but not all) references to the things we brought in club.
Today’s meeting covered the following topic:
- Your current Computer Club Notification Situation.
- iPad (4th generation).
- Mac OS Compatibility Guide.
- Helping Dave find the right Stremio client.
- Helping Irving on how best to utilizes ExpressVPN.
- Disney digitally removes The Mandalorian’s accidental crew member cameo. The Jeans Guy.
- Bill and Cheryl’s Amazon Scam Phone Call.
- Bill and Cheryl’s new Shark robot vacuum cleaner.
- 2 years after Meng Wanzhou’s arrest, fate of ‘2 Michaels,’ China relationship hang in balance.
- M1 MacBook Pro and Air review: Apple delivers.
- How Apple Just Changed the Entire Industry.
- and Our Individual COVID19 Updates.
The Impromptu intro: The intro was personalized and beautified by myself as Vivi was indisposed for the moment. Check back next week for a Vivi-intro. They are only available on the podcast.
Our meeting’s YouTube video is available at: https://youtu.be/GgFqTAdYcPw.
We have returned to Tuesday meetings at a new start time of 10:00am. We will continue our virtual format with online meetings in Google Meet for the foreseeable future.
The Google Meet is scheduled on Google Calendar. If you want to be on that calendar invitation, then provide me your Google account id. Also, provide me with your email address, or follow the appropriate accounts to see a reminder sent out by email, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and WordPress on the day of our meeting.
A CHALLENGE: Can you design a phrase or dialog to trigger and execute a smart speaker commands, while masquerading as conversation? #speakerhacker – Any command execution counts, for example: play a song, get the weather, turn on/off a light. The goal is to covertly execute the command with conversation. We’ll play with our speakers and check back in next week. (see article: Uncovered: 1,000 phrases that incorrectly trigger Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant.)
Special thanks to all of you that have been helping in my endeavors. The things I am doing would not be possible without your support.
Remember, you can always show your support by taking a moment to go on YouTube and iTunes to review, like, and subscribe. When you give our efforts greater exposure it is appreciated as a contribution. Thank you for all your support.
I am always looking forward to our next meeting. Feel free to ‘prep me’ ahead of time with any topics you would enjoy discussing.
Everyone take care and #techOn!
Your friendly neighborhood tech guy,
