We start out with Mike being Rusty, no not a name change just an old Linux skills discussion. What Mike is doing to get back up to speed on them.The discussion then turns to Elisa’s new purchase and it’s a big one. After that we discuss our impressions of the Apple announcements this week and whether Mike is being tempted by them or not. Kevin then updates us on what is happening with his Apple Watch and the continuing weirdness. After that a big congratulations to Elisa and her co-hosts for episode 100 of Three Geeky Ladies.
Last up are our picks for this week.After all the tablet talk Kevin goes a bit wild and chooses a Windows 10 tablet. Next up Mike wants to automate his house a bit more by choosing a digital door lock. Last up it is the start of baseball season and Elisa is excited and doesn’t want to miss a game so she picks MLB TV subscription for the season.
We discuss the weather to begin with as usual. Winter storm Stella made her appearance last week and had a few surprises for us. Let’s just say Elisa hit the jackpot.
This week we are back talking about the Apple Watch and some changes Kevin made to his. This brings up the old question of how accurate is the watch and what can be done about making it more accurate. Since we are talking health, Kevin shares the details of his new blood pressure cuff that he just bought. Then we have an update on Elisa’s continuing ATT billing issues and a discussion on what we think should be on a bill.
For our picks this week we start off with Mike and his desire to improve his outdoor space with a great new gas grill. Next up Elisa chooses the Sonos Playbase which improves your home theater experience. Lastly Kevin wants a NAS and his choice is the Synology DiskStation along with the drives to populate it.
We made it to episode 250 mostly intact. Sorry for the delay in the show, but Kevin couldn’t talk last week and he didn’t want to miss out on this milestone. Unfortunately, the delay means we missed out on Melissa.
We discuss the weather to begin with as usual, but with a positive twist, at least for Kevin. Winter storm Stella is supposed to hit the east coast the day after we record. Expect tales of glory and woe from the crew.
Next we discuss a little TV and the new old show Kevin is watching, Breaking Bad. Elisa recommends a great podcast to go along with the show hosted by the show’s creator. It is the Breaking Bad Podcast of course. We then discuss a couple of purchases made by the crew. Mike has a new bluetooth controller that holds his Nvidia Shield and gives him a nice mobile gaming experience. Kevin shares the bluetooth headphones he bought and how he is enjoying them. We finish up with a discussion of how Elisa can get her music from Microsoft that she had somehow lost.
For our picks this week we start off with Elisa’s choice of the SanDisk 256 GB wireless flash drive and shares a link to a good review of it. Next up Mike being the gadget hound he is and wanting to try all computing platforms chooses Asus 14” Chromebook to round out his collection. Kevin wraps it up with a new porch swing that will let him sit outside and enjoy the snow.
