TEH 086 – Huge drives, Bibles and Who’s Watching?

In This Episode: Using software to transcribe audios and look at photos; what might be coming out of your doorbell — and how many Bibles are in “huge”?

This week the TEH Podcast is hosted by Leo Notenboom, the “Chief Question Answerer” at Ask Leo!, and Gary Rosenzweig, the host and producer of MacMost, and mobile game developer at Clever Media.

(You’ll find longer Bios on the Hosts page.)

Show Notes

  • In the warmup, we talk about how far in advance we work on articles and content, and the usefulness of showing production notes to the dogs.

Top Stories

  • Leo: Using Youtube for transcriptions. It’s a little convoluted, but works!
  • Gary: The juxtaposition of crime and privacy in identifying the content of images – How “hashes” are used to find bad content, and who might be looking at your email. 

Possibly Off Topic, But Cool

  • Leo: Digital Planet podcast from the BBC. Example: last week they discussed repairing Voyager 2
  • Gary:  You can get 16TB drives! They’ve gotten so big it’s amazing and even data hogs don’t need that much. 
    (That’s greater than 3 million Bibles)

BSP: Blatant Self-Promotion
