AwesomeCast 366: Our Annual Blackberry Update with Frank Murgia

Frank Murgia of Pittsburgh Podcast Network joins Sorg and Chilla this week.  Frank always keeps it real when he’s in studio with Blackberry updates and notes on paper.  This week, our tech and gadget gurus are talking about:  

  • Frank is sharing an Awesome Thing of the Week with a wearable USB sync and charging bracelet.
  • Chilla’s Awesome Thing of the Week is an open source product for 360 photos without having to use an outside service.
  • Sorg’s Awesome Thing of the Week would work well with Chilla’s – Hilltopolis happened. It was AWESOME!
  • One of the coolest things about Hilltopolis (other than the music) was the mesh network from Meta Mesh!
  • Kudos to Meta Mesh on the grant from Hillman Foundation! Big things in Pittsburgh with some friends at the helm.
  • We’re getting our annual Blackberry update from Frank.
  • There’s a next gen Uber coming to the streets of Pittsburgh.
  • Sorg saw an Argo while he was out and about. Will Uber have an AI auto competitor in Pittsburgh?
  • Chilla is giving us a PSA about some recent vulnerabilities.
  • Seeing update options on your device? Take the time to update to avoid breach of vulnerabilities.
  • Are you a Microsoft Services user? iOS 11 had some issues with native mail apps. The recent update fixes that.
  • Ford is using AR to assist in development and modeling.
