MacVoices #24086: MVL - Can AI Chatbots Be Effective In Political Campaigns?

While MacVoices Live! doesn’t engage in political discussions, how tech is being used as a political communications tool has become a controversial topic. The MacVoices Live! panel of DAVID GINSBURG, BRIAN FLANIGAN-ARTHURS, MARK FUCCIO, CHUCK JOINER, MARTY JENCIUS, BEN ROETHIG, JIM REA, JEFF GAMET, ERIC BOLDEN, and WEB BIXBY take a look at a real-world test case of AI chatbot use in an American primary contest. While small in scale, this is an interesting example that you can expect to see more of, and the panel disagrees on its importance.  Today’s MacVoices is supported by BACKBLAZE.

MacVoices #24065: CES - GatorGrip Is A Simple, Effective Stand for iPhone or iPad

In Eureka Park at CES in Las Vegas, we caught up with the makers of the GODONUT http://godonut.com, who introduced the new GatorGrip, a simple but very useful and effective iPad or iPhone stand. DAVID KELLY talks about how it is made, how it orients for portrait or landscape modes, and why the material it is made of holds up so well. We also revisit the GoDonut and why it is another type of iPad or iPhone stand that can be used in a different way from the GatorGrip.  SHOW NOTES: LINKS: GATORGRIP https://amzn.to/4bJ4cgG (IPAD) GATORGRIP https://amzn.to/4bLxxqD (IPHONE) GODONUT https://amzn.to/3T7M9tq - IPHONE OR IPAD   SUPPORT: Become a MacVoices Patron on Patreon      http://patreon.com/macvoices      Enjoy this episode?
