Episode 159: Smart Mugs, Google TV & What’s In Our Drawers
Double Tap Canada is back for another look at all that’s great, or not, in the world of tech. We kick off with the news that Apple will be holding yet another event on November 10th. Titled the “One more thing” event, just what are we expecting to see and how much of it will Steven buy?
And speaking of Steven’s shopping addiction, he’ll be telling us about the new Chromecast with Google TV. It’s an affordable way to access many online streaming platforms, but just how accessible is it? Also, after weeks of trying to talk about it, he finally gets to tell us just how excited he is about his Ember Mug. This smart mug will keep your drink of choice hot for hours and both Steven & Marc love it. But is an always hot coffee worth the high asking price? Shaun isn’t convinced…
Next up we have the return of the infamous “What’s In Your Drawers” segment. We’ll be rummaging through our own drawers to find the tech that we simply never use but can’t bring ourselves to throw away. Shaun digs out his Amazon Fire tablet, Steven blows the dust off a laser printer & Marc uncovers an avalanche of smartphones.
The show wraps up with your feedback including why Steven needs to get over Face ID and more on four-sided cassettes.
