Bitcoin Chaos #1246 - Geek News Central Audio

Geek News Central - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 00:52

I have some significant concerns on the Bitcoin Chaos that is happening at this point and want to make sure that the Ohana understand a little more on what they are getting into so that you do not have regret later. It can be an emotional rollercoaster and folks can get carried away in buying and selling and hitting trading limits along with all the technical glitches going on. Just be careful with your money and be prepared to lose it all.

Best Audience in the Universe #1245 - Geek News Central Audio

Geek News Central - Tue, 12/05/2017 - 01:02

Big news on the show today. You all are the best audience in the universe. Sadly since the switch to the 1GB connection with Spectrum, my Internet service has been worse. They were not ready for this in prime time here in Oahu. It’s beyond frustrating the livestream failed tonight and I never had stream failures on the previous slower connection. It really makes no sense. There is no recourse at this point so I will just have to tough it out till Hawaiian Telcom brings 1gb to my area in Q1 2018

You have heard me talk about proximity beacons. I know now how to do it with minimal investment! This course that I endorse and have used successfully is the gateway to deploying proximity beacons for Android.

Coinbase and CryptoCurrency with IRS Scrutiny #1244 - Geek News Central Audio

Geek News Central - Fri, 12/01/2017 - 01:22

Coinbase has come under the extreme scrutiny of the IRS and 15,000 US cryptocurrency traders are about to get a rude awakening. Uncle Sam is going to get his fair share. I also talk about my 1GB Internet woes with Spectrum in Hawaii and how the service is not living up to my expectations. The top speed achieved to date is 560/34. With the upload being shared with the neighbors the impression is less than stellar.

Geek News Central - Tue, 11/28/2017 - 09:34

Facebook is stepping up suicide prevention this is a worthy cause. I talk a lot to tonight about assisted intelligence which most of these devices we have in the home and how they are being manipulated by the manufactures. Also for some reason, my Rhomba decided to vacuum the house tonight while I was doing the show it drove me crazy. I suspect my son used it to vacum his room which was fine but not during the show.

Aliens in 20? #1241 - Geek News Central Audio

Geek News Central - Fri, 11/17/2017 - 01:55

NASA says we will find Aliens in the next 20 years. I would be happy with just having software updated from Adobe that does not break everything I have. It simply drives me crazy that they can break something so bad from release to release. Got myself in a jam this go around with Premier. May be time to go back to final cut (shudder)
