    That was a great episode!

    In 2003, I was using a computer running Windows XP, a BrailleNote, and a hacked-together Linux box to get college work done. And yes, I even used Pine sometimes. I had OpenBook and a scanner to read college textbooks. Two years later, I had access to electronic texts on CDs that I could read on my iBook G4 running Tiger–wow, how fast technology changes in only a couple of years, but also how much things seem to be the same ten years later. I no longer have the Linux Box, my BrailleNote is dead, my Windows XP Pro laptop is almost dead, and I am now using a MacBook Pro running Mountain Lion. Oh, and I need a small MP3 player, like an iPod Shuffle, for exercising–I have no way to mount the iPad to my exercise bike. :)

    Good work!

    Wonderful podcast as usual! Let’s see: cn 2003 I was 10 years old and used borrowed computers running Windows XP. I used a Braille N’ Speak in classes and that was the extent of it. I now own a Windows 7 Dell laptop, an iPhone, iPad mini, iPod Shuffle, BrailleNote Apex, BookSense and Brailliant display. Thank you Apple for not staying in the accessibility dark ages. I don’t know what I’d do without my Apple stuff. :) Once again, a great podcast as always and I look forward to more awesome content from the SeroTalk team!
