In this episode, we will discuss the Exposure Notification System created jointly by Google and Apple to help our governments and global community fight the COVID-19 pandemic through contact tracing. Also, Alaska has joined the long list of states and countries which have already implemented the program named Alaska COVID-ENX. Check this nationwide listing to see if your location has an application available at this link.
In this episode, we will discuss using technology to outsmart the porch pirates and have a secure shopping season. We will review Ring Doorbell devices and the Deliveries application available in the Apple App Store. The combination of using these together will go a long way in ensuring you get your packages this holiday season.
In this episode, we will bypass the speculation nonsense, other than making sure you know about the Tuesday, September 14 Apple Keynote. It’s at 10 am PDT streaming live, and will be available later. We are expecting to see several new models of the iPhone, an AppleWatch and other hardware and software announcements. There are plenty of stories already out there, but I’d rather spend the time on a topic more meaningful. We will save that coverage for a Tuesday evening special Mac Minutes Podcast when we know the facts. I’d encourage you to tune into the keynote and come back for our analysis. This week I want to talk about a major step forward for biking safety, especially for those of us who venture out alone. I purchased this new bike helmet which came out this year, specifically the POC Kortal Race MIPS Bike Helmet. It has tons of structural safety features but the technology is what sold me.
