September 19 show…audio, notes, and links

The audio file of the show can be downloaded and streamed from here.


We talk to an Uber driver, and Justin explains how he uses Uber…without paying for it.

“…driving jobs for independent contractors in Tucson…work as much or as little as you want. Uber takes care of all the details…”


Also, Uber is working with the UA College of Optical Sciences:

Brian McClendon, vice president of advanced technologies for Uber…”it’s clear that Arizona welcomes innovation.”

“…I look forward to working with Arizona…”


iOS 9 has been released. Some got it (S!ick)…some didn’t (Andy)…and others don’t care (what’s-his-name/Justin).


We learn that Apple uses end-to-end encryption in iMessage and FaceTime…

And in a related issue, Microsoft is resisting to comply with a warrant which orders it disclose contents of an email account…because the data is kept in a different country.


The cats of TechtalkRadio have new shirts for their “uniform”. And, so do cats.  (Again:  Justin’s fault.  Hey…I’m writing the post, I get to pick-on whom I choose to…)


And here are some links related to subjects discussed during the show:

“…With Slingbox, you can watch live cable or satellite TV, video apps, recorded shows, and on demand shows on your phone, tablet, and computer. Anywhere in the world. Literally.”

Yahoo Livetext is live video texting, without sound…

“Tile is a tiny Bluetooth tracker and easy-to-use app that finds everyday items in seconds—like your phone, keys, and wallet.”

“Gazelle buys mostly Apple products, iPhones, iPads, iPods, Macbooks, Macs, select Apple TVs & Apple Displays. We also buy a select group of other smartphones and tablets like Samsung, Microsoft. LG and HTC to name a few…”

“Find your bacon lover. Introducing Sizzl – a real dating app for bacon lovers. Connect with thousands of like-minded lovers who share your selective taste in bacon…”


feel the power of Flickr Pro…for free…(for 3 months)


I’ve learned that, until January 4, you can use Flickr Pro for free…


…enjoy 3 months of unlimited storage…

Here’s what you get:
Unlimited uploads (up to 50MB per photo)
Unlimited viewing of your entire photo library
Post photos in up to 60 groups
Download your original, high-resolution photos – whenever you need them
Upload and play unlimited HD videos



Flickr Pro…access to your original files, unlimited uploads, unlimited storage, and unlimited bandwidth for as little as $1.87 per month.

With Pro you get:
Unlimited video uploads (90 seconds max, 500MB per video)
Unlimited storage
Unlimited bandwidth
View count and referrer statistics
Limitation of maximum image size available to others
Ad-free browsing and sharing

Compare that to what you get with a Free Account:
300 MB monthly photo upload limit (30MB per photo)
2 video uploads each month (90 seconds max, 150MB per video)
Photostream views limited to the 200 most recent images
Post any of your photos in up to 10 group pools
Only smaller (resized) images accessible (though the originals are saved in case you upgrade later)

Note: If your free account is inactive for 90 consecutive days, it may be deleted.

If your Pro account expires, don’t panic! None of your photos or videos have been deleted!
This means instead of enjoying the super-duper capacity of your Pro account, you’re now subject to the limits of a free account. If you upgrade again, all of your photos will be waiting for you.

…no matter whether you have a new or existing free account, you will receive our 3 months holiday gift…

If you are a paid Pro member, your Pro expiration date will be extended by 3 months. If you are enrolled in an auto-renewal billing plan, the gift will be applied to your account on your next billing date.

Use one of our mobile apps (iPhone, Android or Windows) and you will automatically receive the holiday gift – no other action is necessary. You can also claim the gift from your desktop, just click on the banner from your home page.

You can claim the holiday gift until January 4th, 2013.
