Elisa is gone this week so it’s just Mike and Melissa talking about servers. First Mike tells about the Tonido server he uses to access file from outside the house and share files with other people. Then he tells about using a Plex server to organize his photos, movies and Tv collection. Melissa then compares that to Apple TV.
As usual this week we start off talking about the weather but this must have angered the weather gods because Elisa got knocked off the podcast shortly afterwards due to power failure. But Mike and Melissa soldier on talking about password managers, specifically 1Password and Lastpass. They discuss prices, features and ease of use.
This week we are going to drive you crazy talking about cars. We discuss how we shop for cars, what we like and the experiences we had car shopping.
For our picks we shop for our ultimate cars, money is no object. First Elisa wants a Acura MDX for driving around. Melissa went crazy and got a Porsche Cayenne, most importantly in purple. And Mike is going back to his roots with a Jeep Gladiator Pickup.
This week we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing. Mike recalls the actual landing (he’s an old fart) and we discuss the facts surrounding it.
From there we move on to movies. We discuss our favorite movies, what we like about them and why we love them.
Finally we move on to our picks which is based on the weather we’re having (it’s Melissa’s weather hot). First Melissa wants to make a splash with a pool. Next Elisa wants her room to be as dry as her humor with a dehumidifier. And to round us out Mike wants to be cool no matter where he goes with a personal air conditioner.
This week (after the weather report of course) we start out with a PSA from Elisa about checking your bill and standing your ground when it comes to what you’re being charged for. Then Melissa tells us of her modem woes and what it took to resolve it (kinda). Then Mike tells of his experience of using Car Play in his new Toyota.
