SMRpodcast #256: Robb the Equalizer

Episode #256 of the SMRpodcast is online and ready for dowload.  This week the Long Lost Host, a.k.a., Rod Simmons, joins Chris and Robb to talk tech events over the last week.

Before we jump into tech, we start the show off with talks of Rod's most recent trip and what its like to deal with TSA the week after a report comes out stating that they didn't discover 95% of the auditors who came through security lines with bomb-like materials.

Google has decoupled Photos from Google Plus, added a few ridiculous features, and, now have arguably the best cloud based photo storage service in existence.  It is Google and free never truly means free, however, Google Photos is ridiculously good and Android and iOS users notopposed to Google's terms of service might want to check it out.

Google has announced Android Pay.  The crew ponders if Google noticed that their name is very similar to Apple Pay…  Especially with the features of Google Pay like loading up credit cards to your Android phone and using a fingerprint to authenticate being so similar to features in Apple Pay.  It's probably just a conicendence…

Amazon to offer free shipping in small items, SSH is coming to Windows, Macs are vulnerable to EFI Zero-day, and Tesla loses fight to sell direct in Texas without going through a dealership.  We've got all this, our picks, and, more in episode #256 of the SMRpodcast.
