Podcast: CES wrap-up, OS reliability

2015’s Consumer Electronics Show is behind us, but we still have a few things to wrap up—specifically, the many HomeKit products Susie saw that we didn’t have a chance to talk about last week. We additionally delve into Apple-related products she spied as well as just how prominent health-centric technology was this year. We then move away from CES to celebrate the iPhone’s eighth anniversary, the ascension of Apple “cameras” to Fickr’s number two spot, and just how reality-based the iOS 8 and Yosemite complaints are.

The days following Thanksgiving have become celebrations of their own (if you believe tearing your fellows limb from limb to obtain a bargain is worth celebrating). With that in mind we look at Black Friday’s winners and losers, examine technology trends in education, shake a disapproving finger at Yahoo for its exploitation of Flickr images, and talk a bit about the wisdom of unbundling Google search from browsers and devices.

Here in my car: Ewww-ber and Alpine's CarPlay plans

It turns out that you can say really terrible things when surrounded by reporters and peers provided that you preface your screed with “Oh, this is off the record….” Fail to do so and people wonder why anyone would employee a person with such vile ideas. In other auto-related news, we talk about Alpine’s CarPlay plans. We wrap up with quick thoughts on why one shouldn’t make idle threats when desirous of the FCC’s good will and how a release-and-fix-later mentality is making us more distrustful.
