    Weekend of May 29, 2020 – Hour 1

    Tech News and Commentary







    Dave and the team discuss a canceled space launch, customized arena banners in video games, the best day and time to get to the store these days according to analytics, Apple reopening stores, Firefox’s improved password management, and more.



























    Allyson in Baton Rouge, Louisiana listens on Talk 107.3WBRP and asked: “What information is on the computer chips in our credit cards, besides credit information?”



















    Allyson, the chips in credit cards, EMV chips, contain the information required to authorize the transaction.







    What that information is, varies depending on whether it’s a debit or a credit account, but it’s basically an account information (account number, maybe a routing number, that kind of data) and a dynamic security token.







    That extra token aside, the information is what you would find in the magnetic strip and it doesn’t include information about the owner.







    If you’re interested in the low level details of how the chips work the standard they follow is ISO-8583 and you can find details about how that standard manages authentication.







    EMV chips just add some level of encryption over the magnetic strip, but keep in mind that the US is pretty far behind most of the world in these technologies and this is relatively old technology that is quickly losing ground to more heavily encrypted contactless technology.

    Tech News and Commentary







    Dave and the team discuss Ford police vehicles heating up to kill viruses, NASA’s isolation volunteers, a court order forcing grandparents to remove pictures from Facebook, Sony’s image sensor AI, a Face ID update to make it compatible with masks, a smart faucets and hand-washing time, and more.



























    Nick in Windsor, Ontario listens on AM800 CKLW and is calling via the app and asked: “I have an Amazon Echo Show. Is there an easy way to watch YouTube on it?”



















    Nick, yes there is, though the fact that you had to ask means Amazon is not making it obvious.







    The Echo Show models don’t have a built in YouTube viewer, but if you tell Alexa that you want to watch videos on YouTube it should ask you which browser you want to use to access YouTube.







    After you answer it will just open it in a browser window.







    While that’s not great and the device would probably benefit from having a more customized YouTube view that was better adapted to its small screen, the truth is that Google has been very lazy with YouTube apps and they basically use a webview for all devices, including TVs now.







    No one gets a good YouTube experience customized to fit their devices anymore, so your Echo Show wouldn’t be any worse off than any other device is these days.







    Amazon does make some competitor services available on the Echo devices, so it’s interesting that it doesn’t make its ability to play YouTube videos more obvious, they may be a little worried about promoting videos that can only work better in Google’s own smart screens.

    Weekend of May 29, 2020 – Hour 3

    Tech News and Commentary







    Dave and the team discuss a contact tracing app violating its own privacy policy by feed data to FourSquare and Google, Amazon Prime Day news, innovations aimed at older people, an new at home coronavirus test, disinfectant-spraying drones, Tesla’s long life battery, and more.



























    Harry in Port Huron, Michigan listens on AM800 CKLW and asked: “I’m a Windows 10 user. Some of my webpages load fast, and others take 30-35 seconds. I’m using AT&T’s DSL service. What would be the cause of the slow web page loading? I use the new version of Microsoft Edge as well as Chrome and have the problem on both. What can I do about that?”



















    Harry, it’s hard to say without more information about your computer and your connection, but a number of things could be at play here.







    First of all, DSL might mean 100mbps, or it might mean 3mbps, so your connection speed can definitely be a factor if you’re trying to load certain websites. Simpler websites don’t assume or require a lot of bandwidth, but media-heavy sites do rely on faster connections to bring all of their assets down quickly.







    Your computer itself may also be the cause, modern websites are pretty complex and while some are very simple lightweight, others do require a fair amount of memory and power from the computer.







    For example, there are sites out there that emulate Photoshop-style graphics editors, or that let you clip videos, something like that will take a lot more power than a homeowners association site that hasn’t been updated since 2002.







    More RAM may help in some cases, but again, that depends on your computer’s current specs. Chrome is a notorious memory hog, and the new version of Edge runs on Chromium, so it’s likely not lightweight either, so memory might help.







    Windows 10 was Microsoft’s big push to get people off of Windows 7 and even XP in some cases, so it does run on some very old systems, you may have a computer that is already being taxed by its own operating system and struggling to keep up with the demands of websites that are demanding that it not just loads but also plays different kinds of media.

    Tech News and Commentary







    Dave and the team discuss “Hey Boo Boo”, Jeff Bezo’s wealth, Twitter permanently allowing employees to work from home, Facebook buying Giphy, Facebooks ads, AT&T’s 5G network, and more.



























    Joey in Dublin, Virginia listens on WRAD and asked: “Question about Microsoft Office Online. I have a problem trying to log into it because I changed my e-mail address.”



















    Joey, it would be good to know what kind of problems you’re having logging in.







    If you changed the email address that you use for Microsoft’s online services they should’ve sent you a verification email and you should be able to use that email address to either log in or reset your password.







    If you didn’t change the email address and your problem is that you no longer have access to the email address that Microsoft is trying to use for 2FA or to otherwise check that you are who you say you are, that’s a problem and you may be out of luck.







    If you’re a paid user, you can try contacting support and they may be able to verify you are who you say you are using your payment method, but if you’re a free user and you are not offered a different way to verify your identity, you may just be locked out.







    The processes used to verify your identity are there to protect your data and if you don’t have a way to access them, they won’t have a way to verify that you are who you say you are.







    Having said that, if you can tell us more about the problems you’re facing, we may be able to provide some alternative solutions to allow you to access your account.







    As a last resort, you may need to make a new account with your new email address, cancel your old plan, and pay for a new one.

    Tech News and Commentary







    Dave and the team discuss Apple smart-glasses, socializing online during quarantine, YouTube bedtime reminders, Google’s dark mode, fidget spinners and UTIs, a virus killing masks, and more.



























    Nick in Windsor, Ontario listens on AM800 CKLW and asked: “I have an Amazon Echo Show. Is there a way to change the search engine on it? I believe it goes to Bing.”



















    Nick, as far as we know it’s still not possible to easily change the default search engine.







    As you might expect, Amazon is not jumping at the chance to bypass its own smart assistant’s logic to let you use Google’s.







    Having said that, if you’re technical enough, there are workarounds to install Google search as a skill.







    It’s not straightforward though, it does require you to not just install a skill, but also code a AWS – Amazon Web Services Lambda function.







    Lambda functions are programs in your chosen programming language that run in AWS’s serverless environment. If you’re a programmer and you’re willing to go through the trouble, it’s not the hardest thing in the world to set up, and you will be able to ask Alexas to “search Google” for something.







    If you’re not a programmer you should know that Amazon’s AWS has a fairly generous free tier that does include a large number of processing hours to be used on AWS Lambda functions, but signing up for even that free tier does require giving them your credit card information.







    There is also a learning curve to AWS that you will have to content with.







    AlexaMods.com has links to many skills you can add to any Amazon Echo, including an ask Google skill. This link will redirect you to GitHub. There it gives you guides and a way to download the code to implement to your Echo Show.







    If you’re looking for an option in a settings pane, unfortunately, you’re out of luck for the time being.







    Rob asked: “Two questions… What is the difference between a wi-fi booster and a wi-fi extender? What is a good wi-fi booster or extender? Garage is about 20′ away from my hub. Thank you for any help you can give me! Be safe.”



















    Rob, those terms are mostly used interchangeably. They’re both wireless range extenders.







    There could be a difference in that a WiFi extender sometimes refers to a wired device that you plug into a your wired network to extend your WiFi to a place that wouldn’t otherwise get it, but more often than not they are meant to identify devices that will take a WiFi network and somehow make it reach places it normally wouldn’t.







    Booster is mainly a term for something that takes a wireless signal, boosts it and repeats it, but there’s no official definition that anyone is required to stick to.







    As for good boosters or extenders. Most of them are either difficult to set up or difficult to use. For example, some will force you to connect to a different network once you start to ...
