    • Kelly does not like the Digital Trends website
    • Cinch Tents even connect together to make tent cities and have solar panels

    • SpiderOak did not fare well against Jon’s criteria
      • It has no 2FA (two-factor authentication). In 2018. Srsly.
      • Each device in the account can see and download all the files from every other device in the account. Booooooo for data segregation!
    • iDrive is the winner. It backs up all Jon’s devices (Windows, Mac, iPhone, Linux)
      • iDrive has proper encryption and device separation
      • The 2FA is provided by a separate encryption/decryption password from the login password
      • You also get a sync folder to sync data across all your devices without it counting against your backup quota
      • Annnd the price is right! Click here to check out iDrive (affiliate link)

  • Ms. Casey did not like Kelly’s noodle hat.
  • Jon goes off on a tangent about why sugar is good for kids
  • It’s hard to believe how much Jon knows about credit cards now. Too much PCI, too much PCI!!
  • 10:00 – Jon talks about Epson ecotank printers!
    • Somehow we end up talking about prescriptions, but back to printers
    • Ecotank printers come with 2 years worth of ink
    • Seems reasonable…rated at 150 pages per month, starting at about $240. If it works as described, it would be fairly inexpensive.
    • The big issue is the vast span of time between now and two years from now. How can I be sure I will be able to buy ink in two years?
    • Kelly does not want the inconvenience of purchasing single colours of ink.

  • 08:00 – Kelly’s Corner
    • eSight is “Vision for the Blind”
    • The Jibo robot is almost cure enough to spend $900 USD on. Almost.
      • Maybe Jibo isn’t a secret spy.
    • We’re GEN-X!! At least Kelly thinks so.
    • And following up the list of these amazing inventions is some really lame stuff.
  • 26:00 – Jon talks about crypto currency and death
    • When we die, who gets our Bitcoins?
    • “Mining” means you get a reward for doing some work for the cypto currency block chain.
    • Full disclosure: we’re not lawyers. Do not take legal advice from us.
    • The block chain will tell us how much currency is out there, and even what wallets it is in, but not who owns the wallets.
    • Crypto currency always has some kind possibility of being recovered whereas destroyed cash does not.
    • Only the big guys can mine new coins now.
