In this episode of Audio Pizza, Shaun and Garth are joined by special guest Steven Scott from the RNIB Tech Talk show to discuss whats new in the world of tech.
Starting off with the release of Samsungs new flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S8 & S8Plus, we talk about our experiences with Android and is it time we gave it another chance? It’s a beautiful phone but can it compete with the great accessibility on iOS? Then, just when you thought your files where safe, we discuss the story of the Turkish Crime Family. A hacking group that claims to have access to 500 million iCloud accounts. With the ability to access personal photos and files and remotely wipe Macs and iPhones, should we be worried?
In other news, Windows 10 Creators Edition will be launched on April 11th, and with it comes support for braille in Narrator and the ability to use Narrator during installation. Also Google Home will be released in the UK on the 6th of April but can it compete with the ever popular Amazon Alexa? And more importantly, can we get through the entire podcast with out triggering our favourite Amazon assistant? Remaining in the theme of smart homes, Steven tells us about a new range of smart lighting from Ikea. With a lower price the the Phillip Hue bulbs will we be rushing out to buy them or sit at home in the dark like Garth?
We finish the podcast with the hilarious / nightmarish story of Jessie Newton and his poop painting robot vacuum.
