Bart Busschots invited me for an interview on the topic of aviation photography. We talked about locations, compositions, tips and traps for getting good photos of aircraft at your local airport, and sometimes we strayed onto general topics about how the aviating happens. A most enjoyable time.
With Allison and Steve away in the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu, I was given the task of hosting NosillaCast #620, which meant a week of blog posts to manage and then collate into the final product.
Topics include a miniature review of using the Apple Watch Series 2 for swim workouts, 26 Mac Apps you didn’t know you already had, two more videos from the CSUN Assistive Technology Conference, some recommendations for podcasts you might want to listen to that aren’t about technology, Terry delivering on his callout from Allison with a review of GhostReader text to speech software, and a review of the BeatsX Bluetooth earbuds with Apple W1 chip.
I wrote another album review for Mark Greentree’s Subjective Sounds music blog. The Turn of a Friendly Card was a very early, if not the first album in my music collection and has remained a favourite.
Episode 607 of the NosillaCast Mac Podcast contains the audio of my review of Primitive.
I wrote a guest review of the artistic graphics app Primitive for the NosillaCast. It’s an app that takes your photos and turns them into abstract art works.
I joined Allison as a guest this time and spoke about how programming has been both my hobby and a tool for real world problems.
Episode 586 of the NosillaCast Mac Podcast contains the audio of my Tucano Elements Second Skin for MacBook 12″ review.
I wrote a guest review of the Tucano Elements Second Skin for MacBook 12″. This is a zippered sleeve to protect the diminutive MacBook.
One thing I like about “Monday-ised” public holidays is it affords me a little more flexibility to take part in podcasts.
I was on the panel of Let’s Talk Apple 33, for May 2016, with Bart Busschots, Gazmaz, and Chuck Joiner and although it looked like a bit of a slow news month, we managed to have some really interesting discussions about Apple in Asia, privacy versus convenience, and more. I think I managed a couple of rants in there, too.
