S2E9: Patch Early And Often

Patch Early And Often

In this episode, we talk about how to keep your PC and Mac safe, at least safer. We bash Microsoft Defender and we talk about why Bacon and Pizza are the amazing foods. And perhaps Anti-Virus software should be named after delicious food so it is easier to pick what is right for you. Also, we talk about Apps that save on data but let you still check your Gmail and other apps. #Podcast #TheOneOffTechPodcast

Episode 1 Season 2: Alexa, can you hear me?

Alexa Voice Commands

In this Episode:

Alexa lands at Roy’s house and they mostly get along. Adventures in Voice Assistants (Siri, Alexa, Google Now, Google Home), Virtual Assistants, and trying to get them to tell you what you really want to hear or know. Plus we learn Amazon’s Alexa makes a great DJ if you are in the mood for Heavy Metal Christmas, Heavy Metal Classical Music, or the Chris Tomlin station. Actually you find she is really good at all things music. Quite fun there. Be sure to listen to the end for the “Moment of Zen”.
