MobileViews Podcast 220: Dinosaur protest, mini-horse service animals, ICD10 orca contact, VPN, & more

Jon Westfall and I didn’t find much in the way of interesting tech news to discuss. So, we threw in a few topics we simply found interesting.

  1. IFA 2017? Meh. Ref: TechRadar
  2. Are we excited about any of these IOS 11 features? Ref: Business Insider
  3. What about WatchOS 4?
  4. VPN services. Private Internet Access & Tunnel Bear.
  5. Protesting dinosaurs in D.C.
  6. Miniature horse service animal. Guide Horse Foundation
  7. Question for the ages: Where do single socks go when they disappear from a dryer? I currently have three socks who have been abandoned by their partner.
  8. ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code W56.22XA. Struck by orca, initial encounter. W56.22XA is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes.

    Jon’s notes: Subsequent encounter is also a separate code (22XD). Accidental contact also has some great things I’ve never considered having contact with: Giraffe (How does one have accidental contact with a Giraffe?!?), Also W22.09 is walking into stationary objects. However lampposts have their own code W22.02).

  9. Microsoft and Amazon teaming up to let Alexa and Cortana work with each other. Ref: ars technica
