Info-Tainment News! Apple, Amazon, Specter MeltDown,CES and Even Google Gets a Giggle

Welcome to the first Blind Abilities Info-Tainment News! Nick, Pete, Lori and Jeff share a look at the latest news and put a humorist twist and reflect about the entirety of the news covered in the light hearted skit we are calling, “Info-Tainment News.”

From the security vulnerabilities, to the virtual assistance populating our homes, to household appliances that are beginning to take commands vocally, they all succumb to the humility we employ upon these new innovations.

We follow up with a commentary from all of us talking about how we approach the ever changing horizon and actually today’s realities of technology. How are you handling the changing techno environment? Are you keeping up with the technology and are you staying safe with security? Are the Gidget and gadgets changing for better independence or is it just differently dependent that is evolving?

Join the BlindAbilities Team on this humorous journey through technology and how it may be affecting us today.

Check out the links below to find out more about the devices and techno news talked about on the Blind Abilities Info-Tainment News.
