I travel down the rabbit hole of CES 2017, full of weird tech.

Today’s Episode

It’s January and that means CES is back! CES 2017 seems to be about the smart fridges and convincing people about making their homes smart. It’s bigger this year. LG and Samsung are trying to persuade people into an always-connected life. Will people buy into it, is the question. There are some grave security questions about always connected devices. None of the companies seem too concerned about it either. This security concern does warrant me to hold off until they address this issue. No one should have their TV or fridge hijacked and told to pay money for it. However, I am hopefully these companies will wise up and invest time and money into it. This is the best way to get more customers and ensure they stay loyal.

Highlights from the Show:

Zuckerberg is going on a road trip!

If you use Lyft and Uber, you can reduce congestion if you share your ride.

I don’t understand why someone would need a 2 TB flash drive at 2 grand.

If you’re looking for a great DSLR at an affordable price, the GH5 is your camera.
