MobileViews Podcast 365:Guest co-host Darryl Lajola; Google Photos & Pixels; Amazon Echo sharing your WiFI

Todd Ogasawara is joined on this podcast by Darryl Lajola while Jon Westfall is on a Memorial Day weekend road trip. Darryl worked with Todd several years ago and then moved to work for Utah’s state government until several weeks ago. We reconnect to discuss gadgets and teleworking during the pandemic.

  1. I circle back on Google Photos in its last two days of unlimited storage. Specially, retaining unlimited storage of photos uploaded from Pixel phones.
  2. I also briefly note that Amazon Sidewalk will start sharing WiFi from its Echo devices and how to disable this (if you want).

    Amazon devices will soon automatically share your Internet with neighbors

    On June 8, the merchant, Web host, and entertainment behemoth will automatically enroll the devices in Amazon Sidewalk. The new wireless mesh service will share a small slice of your Internet bandwidth with nearby neighbors who don’t have connectivity and help you to their bandwidth when you don’t have a connection.

    Enable/disable Amazon Sidewalk

Available via Google Music Podcasts and Apple iTunes.
