Episode 77 – Themes from CES 2017, iPhone 10th Anniversary
6 days ago
We're back after our long Christmas, New Year, and CES hiatus – thanks for bearing with us while we took our break, and Happy New Year!
We kick things off with a News Roundup, with three topics: Apple's reported investment in original video content, ostensibly for the benefit of Apple Music subscribers; Nintendo's announcement of pricing, specs, and other details for its Switch console; and Facebook's attempt to help news organizations with its Journalism Project. Our main topic today is themes from CES, in which we discuss the fact that Amazon's Alexa was everywhere, cars continued to grow in importance, smart home gear and services continue to evolve, drones were popular at CES but struggled elsewhere this week, wearables seem to be fading as a force, and Chinese companies continue to struggle to break into the US in a big way. Our third segment is a discussion of the 10th anniversary of the announcement of the iPhone, and all that's changed in the world as a result.
