The Gang of 4 return to the studio to take a good look at the news and happenings around the technology world with a blindness perspective. From Aira stating the Free 5 minute policy clearly to Bose and Microsoft Stores closing for good. Oh, yes, the Bose Frames are still pumping out the sound but the Virtual Reality gets put on the shelf and may not be a reality in the Bose labs. Twitter goes audio with Tweets, or at least, the feature is rolling out but without accessibility? What? Access may be coming. But, is Audio Description getting yanked around? What about Brian’s new Ultra-Violet Wand? Yes, he is lighting up his world! We hope it is a cleaner world when he is done. Believe me, we do.
