September 5, 2020 :49: COVID Notifications In my iPhone? : Quarantine Meeting #26

Good morning to all of you technology enthusiasts,

Today’s meeting was full of good learning for all students of tech (including for the Guest Host a.k.a myself. I love a meeting, where I come out more informed than I went in. Today was such a meeting.

As always, we started a little early and cover a lot of personal topic before our official start time. You may get some of that on the podcast, but you’ll never find it on the YouTube stream. Even the podcast gets edited down so, if you want the full affect of one of our meeting, then you definitely have to show up to our Meet early.

If you want help joining our Meet, then send me your email address for our notification list, as well as, look for notifications on services such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube to know when our meetings are beginning. You can be part of the discussion or just tune-in to listen.

Today’s meeting covered the following topic:

Podcast Recommendation: The Daily, episode: 9/4/2020: Bringing the Theater back to Life

TV Recommendations: The Outsider(HBO), The Umbrella Academy (Netflix), Yellowstone (PeacockTV), The Great (Hulu), Breaking Bad (Netflix), Republic of Doyle (Acorn), Longmire (Netflix), Space Force (Netflix), Why Women Kills (CBS All Access).

The YouTube video is available at: https://youtu.be/grbi4tTqdNI.

We are currently using the Google Meet code: [rgb-rrgc-gqp] for our weekly meeting. This code will probably be the same for next meeting. Check our blog sccClub.org and look for notifications when in doubt.

Reoccurring Themes:

NOTE #1: The Google Meet is scheduled on Google Calendar. If you want to be on that invitation, then provide me your Google account id. Also, provide your email address, or follow the appropriate accounts to see a reminder on the day of our meeting sent out by email, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and WordPress.

NOTE #2: 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. Without your support these things would not be possible.

Personalized intro by Vivi and myself.

Remember, you can always show your support by taking a moment to go on YouTube and iTunes to review, like, and subscribe. When you do this, it gives our efforts greater exposure. It is as valuable, and as appreciated, as any contribution to the work I’m doing. Thank you.

Can’t wait till next week!

Everyone take care and #techOn!
