“The Oregon Trail”.  In your hand.  With a color screen.  Powered by AA batteries.  For $25.  I picked up one of these devices (the night before their official release) and took it home.  Then recorded me unboxing it.  Playing it.  And then ripping the thing apart to see what makes it tick.

Some of the shots of the screen are out of focus. Sorry about that. I was in a hurry and excited to play with this and didn’t spend enough time setting up the cameras. 🙂

In yesterday’s episode I reviewed the Freewrite (a Linux-powered, mechanical keyboard, e-ink writing machine).  It left me feeling highly conflicted.  So now we’re talking to the creator of the Freewrite to talk about all of my thoughts and get a little more insight into this quite funky gadget.

This is the Freewrite.  It has a mechanical keyboard, an e-ink screen, WiFi for document syncing, USB-C for file transfer, incredibly long battery life, and it’s powered by Linux.  I show you the basics of how to use it and my overall thoughts on this rather unique device.

Hands on with a Radio Shack / Tandy TRS-80 Model 102.  One of the first laptop computers.  Ever.  32k of RAM.  Runs for 20+ hours on AA batteries.  Mechanical keyboard that is a joy to type on.  Built-in 300 baud modem.  A truly fascinating device that is, crazy enough, fairly usable in 2018 — over 30 years after it was built.

A preview of LinuxFest Northwest 2018 — taking place April 28th and 29th in Bellingham, Washington.  I am joined by one of the conference organizers, James Mason, to talk about some of the great speakers lined up — along with the game room, the conference party, the robotics, and all the other fun stuff happening in this free-to-attend weekend of Linux nerdiness.

It’s Thursday!  And that can mean only one thing… Linux Day on the Lunduke Show!  Where you decide what we talk about… as long as it’s at least a little Linux-y!  What were the topics?  Who knows!  But I bet it was chock-full of Linux!

There are so many insecure ways we transmit our data that — in effect — nothing is secure.  And fooling ourselves into thinking otherwise is dangerous.  Let me walk you through a quick list of all the highly insecure methods of data transmission that are not likely to be secured any time soon.
