Online Security. Keeping All Parts Private.

Download

Join Garth in his very early morning coffee as he hosts this latest episode of Audio Pizza. Kayakker returns to give us his opinions, advice and tips on online security issues. Oh, and Shaun gets shot in the first 30 seconds.

First up for discussion is Trumps repeal of U S Broadband privacy rules, meaning that your internet provider is again free to sell your details, such as browsing history, to other companies. This story has been big news everywhere but is there really anything to worry about? Kayakker then goes on to tell us just how secure http and VPN can help.

Next, we discuss phishing and password best practice. How do you know if that email from your bank, Paypal or Amazon etc is real or fake and should you ever click on the link they send? Short answer to the latter is No. Kayakker shares his story on how easy it is to get fooled.

To finish up this episode full of great sensible advice, we admit that, like lots of other people, we tend not to follow our own advice when it comes to passwords. Using the same password for multiple sites or not changing passwords regularly are things we are all guilty off. Hey, we never said we were perfect…

New Tech, Whats Hot & What Stinks?

Download Or Play

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.
