"Though. To be fair, did they really use that? Those words of cleaning your device. So they didn't. I just read that to you. Yes. So well, there you go, then. That's fine. They got a ghetto. They didn't say it is Microsoft, right? Yes. You don't generally sell Apple products. No. And maybe they meant cleaning macOS off your iMac. Yeah. If you wanted to delete macOS, you decided to do it. Well, yeah, you're right. I mean, you can run Windows on the Mac if you've got an Intel one. Someone actually put up they said, oh, it wasn't even an Intel one. It wasn't the old style. But you can run Windows on there. The parallels at the moment you can run it and you can get the windows arm version, which is a billion, but basically it was a screw up. Someone clearly just went to the wrong folder. Although why? Why does Microsoft have a library of Mac images? I just did a Google search, didn't they? Possibly, yeah. There's always these are always fun. Marques brownlee. Mkbhd is notorious for pointing out big celebrities are promoting products, specifically normally like Samsung products. And they're tweeting about it from iPhones. He points to the point that he got blocked by Gal Gadot once. Oh, really? Oh yeah, yeah. This is one of the most famous ones where she was tweeting for Samsung, I believe it was, and it was something about the new galaxy lineup, but instead sent from iPhone. And he posted the picture, and she blocked him. And he talked about it in media. And he's been notorious for catching these and posting them pretty quickly before anybody else really catches them. And it's just, it's become just really fun memes at this point. It's so funny. As you know, Mark, I've been along that and you have two, been at Microsoft buildings where we're sitting there talking to Microsoft people. And all around the place, everyone's sitting with a MacBook. And nobody wants to admit that. Not everybody, obviously. And I imagine I will see one thing though, I will see one thing in Microsoft's defense here. I've noticed our certainly before the pandemic when I was traveling a lot, especially going from say Scotland to England. On the long train journeys, it used to be the case that every every single seat every single table had someone sitting And then there was a change. I don't know what it was, and I imagine it's a corporate decision, but it now seems everywhere you turn it surface books, our stuff is pros. And yeah, there's definitely a shift going on. I imagine that's a corporate decision. Clearly, the machines are Microsoft and they're using them. And surface pros just looks so cool. Don't care what it looks like. Max were just terrible with their heat when they went into their keyboard problems, Mac laptops were terrible for the longest time. So yeah, I think that's yeah, I want to get very seriously to guys, because I do have a story to share, which I'm very sad about. And I'm going to share it with you a bit later on the program, because I'm honestly devastated by this news, we'll get into it later. YouTube. Go and find some new stories, because I've got Brian fischler coming up next from that real blind tech show. He is going to be joining us to talk over axe con 2022, the big digital accessibility conference that was held virtually again this year, and why he was involved. Why was a New York comedian invited to an event all about digital accessibility to find out next? This is double tap Canada. We'll be back in a moment. Hey double tappers want to get involved, call the show now at one 8 four four 9 7 one one 9 9 9, or email, feedback at AMI dot CA, and have your say. This is double tap Canada. It's a tech show, honest. It really is. And while those guys go off in search for it, news stories for us to talk about because I'll be honest, I've been struggling this week, so hopefully Mark can Sean come up with something. We are going to be joined by Brian fischel and I, though, from that real blind texture, he's a New York comedian, he's blind. He's got a lot to see on a loft topics, including gaming, yeah, and that is why he was asked along to the axe con conference recently, a fantastic event held virtually this year and an opportunity for lots of developers and coders to learn about the value of accessibility and the value of coding for disabled people, right? So that essentially we can all take part. So yeah, really interesting to find out all about this. Brian, greater view on double tap, Canada, lovely to have you here on the show. Tell us a little bit about axe con then and what it actually is. Yeah, axe count is put on by DQ systems and GQ is doing some fascinating work because what DQ systems does to my understanding, I don't work for the company I don't represent the company. You have to have that disclaimer for everything you send nowadays. They basically are consultants where mid range to even, I guess, you know, Fortune 500 companies will hire them to train their accessibility department. And more and more companies obviously are putting a focus in an emphasis on accessibility and universal design. And axe gun will consult with them over best practices and train their staff. So that way they'll have an internal staff to get up to speed and so axe con, I guess, you know, with everything that happened with sea sun because axe con from my understanding used to be a pretty big sponsor of sea sun and two years ago I was at sea sun and things were not handled the greatest and I guess DQ probably felt the same thing. And they broke off and started their own conference and it's gotten pretty big. I believe they had over 20,000 it was all virtual, completely free online. Anybody could sign up for it. And I believe they said they had over 20,000 attendees and sign up ease. I guess this year, I don't know if everybody attended that signed up. But they are talking about certain Tim Berners-Lee was the keynotes and one of the main keynote speaker this year. For those of you not familiar with him, he's the guy credited with inventing the World Wide Web he gave us the HTTP. I'd like to think he's done more than that, Steven. I don't know, because I don't know his whole. It's great. But hey, you know, and I don't even think we need to use that anymore. Do we? No, so yeah, exactly. So thanks for nothing, Tim. Yeah. Just move on though. That's it. We've had your fun. I mean, I often thought of him like, you know, the guy who invented the first telephone, you know? I don't know. I don't know what he did necessarily that's a controversial topic because he said Alexander Graham Bauer wasn't Marconi, I think, the Italians. Well, you know, I'm Scottish, so it was Alexander Graham bell, right? So I'm not interested in facts. As you know, it's all about feelings these days, Brian. Exactly. I feel that's the right answer. I feel you're correct because I can't spell Marconi. I don't know if it's Marconi, Marconi. Anyways, I'm getting hungry. That's all I can tell you. Is that a topping for pizza market? But getting back to X continent. So axon and they had just a wealth of talent speaking at this year. I didn't attend a ton of, you know, I can only take so much because so much of this stuff gives over my head. So it's there for us to learn about, but it's best practices for universal design a lot of WCA G in the way the web is evolving, and it's all about accessibility and accessible design, making your website accessible. Hey, ding, ding, ding, no overlay companies were present. Oh, interesting. Right, okay. Yeah. We didn't name them in case the tunnel litigious on us. But you know who you are out there. So rocky with all that in mind, why the hell were you invited? It's kind of like that plot to die hard. I think I was invited by mistake, you know?.

"So far has nineteen and i could see debbie garcia if they truly punt on the season like less call debbie garcia. He get ten. Starts you get nine more starts and kluber can never come back. You might never pitch again. I'm not ruling this out. I mean you have on an kluber. So it's it's gone could tie on his nineteenth starts okay credit ability again. It was a kickoff credit and then the last one is super specific. And it's i guess. It's still possible. And i guess it's still possible. Yup saturday september eighteenth is going to be brett gardner appreciation day Saturday and saturday october. Second is going to be john sterling appreciation day sterling. I don't think so has rebounded. I think he is not happy about. This is like a mary auto or jeeter dot leaving on an injury. He is not going out like this calling from a tv screen. Be in the goddamn stadium. He's going to be waving to people not happening. But i don't think dope here's where you're wrong. There's gonna be no appreciation. People love record. I had someone tweet me ask just young monument. I had someone ask if brett gardner is going to get a fucking monument. Who has monuments received ruth lou. Gehrig joe maggio mickey mantle. Those players have monuments and someone asked me if brett car dealer is going to get a monument. Last week would look good. He would look good on monument alien head not exactly all right so we're gonna bergener take an l. for all verbal predictions. This time it will never bring them up again. This season unless aaron judge wins the mvp. Then something good happen so we do have a couple mailbag questions. The first one My guy brian fischler emailed me he He's a great guy. He's been on the podcast. I think once or twice and he does the laugh for site. he's He's a he's a comedian. He's also blind and he's got a charity for for to raise money for blind awareness. And it's a laugher said. I went Three years in a row. It's it's really an awesome time. But he is just fed up with the yankees says. I absolutely despise the entire twenty twenty one yankees team same here. It's absolutely unimaginable to me. That i could hate a yankees team this much. See the only way of fixing things is to not make the playoffs. Get rid of boone. He says the tone for the dead bunch. The entire philosophy of the organization needs to change. I do not think. Steinbrenner will fire cashman. But i think it needs to be done as the entire system needs a reset. You think the entire yankee system is broken. I have no doubt. The yankee system will f- up the martian. Look what they have done to. Every other player torres sanchez and do our other young players. That seem to have gotten worse over the past few years. He says go sox seriously. I don't mean that. But i think it's the only way to fix things kind of what we said in the first half of this episode. Is that just blowing up. Yeah start with the manager and see what you could do at least give us Some semblance of a season to refer the. Yeah it's not not not a majority of yankees fans feel the way. Brian feels in the way you have expressed you feel and how we feel or that. 'cause i still see so many fans on twitter and twitter's assessable but i see so many people still trusting the process and it baffles me. No there's no process to trust at this point. He's just gotta make a change man. I'll tell you what watching looking and seeing these Following some of the reporters are down there watching dominguez. All the time kid is lighted up already. You know in the in the in tampa where he is right. Now i will. You can't you can't not nothing's gonna happen this year. But i'm saying i'm saying he's an exciting player. He's living up to the bill. So far in the first org i Real ball that he's that he's played in like the kid. Looks like a a man amongst boys. I would not be surprised if the when you see a kid like that. Like a lot of times in in baseball the players also physically mature to get to a point where they can play these next levels right over the past two years. He's so far beyond the the his is physical ability that you should be at that at that age that there's no reason if he continues to just keep up them up and see what happens. There precedent for come up in thirteen twenty sewed bryce harper. These players were nineteen years old when they were playing well in the major leagues. So i think jason dominguez is what eighteen years old this year. Because i think he's seventeen. I think he's still seventeen. he's either seventeen or eighteen. He still think he. I think eighteen if he if he's eighteen just turned eighteen. Recently i believe either way seventeen or eighteen years there is eighteen. He turns his birthday february. He just turned eighteen this past february. Yeah so next spring training he will be nineteen years old. He should get a major league invite to spring training which will and then who knows maybe second half of the year he can if he rakes in aaa cole. No yeah i mean he may not even go to aaa aaa. You might go like to go. Those step-by-step well then then blitz. Let's hope that some Changes in the organization is overhauled..
