In This Episode: Tech terminology, camera battery life, does new Apple processor really make easier easy? Science fiction and organs for entertainment.
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 & Links
- Leo: Technology uses a lot of terms we should think about:
- Gary: Battery tech… What about battery life for police cameras if they are legislated to be on all the time?
- Leo: Million mile battery would change life as we know it.
- Gary: There is a rumor that Apple is switching from Intel processor to ARM processors in Macs.
- Apple is encouraging developers to create aps for both PC’s and OS. ARM might be easier (might still not be “easy”). 👍
- What’s going to happen when you try to run Windows on an ARM processor?
- Leo: Speaking of Apple: Apple Becomes First U.S. Company to Hit $1.5 Trillion in Market Value
Ain’t it Cool
- Leo: I have eclectic tastes. Here’s a great Youtube on organs I watched: The wonderful world of the cinema organ
- Gary: “Devs” an American science fiction thriller television miniseries.

I just want you to know how much your podcast means to me. Living alone during this pandemic is very stressful and I enjoy podcasts like yours when I take a walk. I find your style and voices comforting, and I’m sure many other tech people feel the same way.
Wishing you and your families all the best, and praying that you stay safe.

Thanks for your kind words, Eric! All the best to you and yours as well.
I grew up during a time when some of the larger movie theaters still had their pipe organs in operating condition, and they fascinated me. I soon turned from classical piano lessons to playing 1920’s pop songs by ear from my father’s 78RPM collection. I had a Hammond BV electronic organ for awhile in my 50’s but got bored with it, and next put together a Wersi Alpha programmable and portable spinet organ from a kit. But a theater organ was always a recurring dream. At the age of 79, I had just refinanced my mortgage, and serendipity took me to Craigslist one day, looking at keyboards. There, at the end of the list, was a 2006 Lowrey Stardust electronic theater organ (original price about $50K) for $800, and it was just across town from my apartment. Its 500-lb bulk fit very nicely in the elevator when placed on end, and I’ve been playing and learning on it ever since. A demo from the Allen Music Center in England is online – take a listen!
Very cool! That looks like a fun machine!
