Ten months, ten topics...
- Feb: CES 2019 should give us some ideas about what Black Friday 2019 will be all about. A review of what they hope we'll buy.
Uninspired by CES. CNET crowed that Apple and Samsung 'stole the show' by announcing that iTunes, Homekit, and Airplay would be available on some Samsung televisions. Apple wasn't even at the show except for a sign that declared 'What happens on your iPhone, stays on your iPhone.' Believe that? Me neither. (see http://www.startribu...-app/505087752/ and https://www.msn.com/...es/ar-BBSZqui) Sony showed a beer-holding-karaoke-party-speaker...because it's a good idea to set alcoholic beverages on top of electronic devices, i guess...in Japan. Best quote of the show came from The Verge, "Kohler’s Numi 2.0 Intelligent Toilet is one of those strange products that draws so heavily on buzzwords and tech trends that it’s indistinguishable from parody." Google Home and Alexa enabled, the intelligent toilet is part of Kohler's smart bathroom. Speakers, moodlighting, and a bidet, but no medical analysis. The Japanese have been taking stool samples at home for two decades. Alienware demo'd a $2,549 i7-8700, RTX 2070, 1TB, 8GB of DDR4, 1080p 60Hz laptop. With the possible exception of the display, all of those components are upgradable. No guarantees that anyone will make components that will fit, but my shorts are getting a little tight. Still boring.
