01:14 CES TRENDS
What was driving CES 2018 this year? AI that’s not so I, Voice Assistance and Commands (Google Assistant was everywhere.) Wireless charging is back in a serious way, thanks to Apple iPhones and wireless charging compatibility. (Shannon was admiring chargers from Belkin, iOttie, and Satechi). IoT security? Not so much. Robots? VR??? Watch the video to find out!

13:50 Anker ROAV VIVA Alexa Enabled Car Charger Review
Roav, Anker’s mobile division, announced the VIVA Alexa Enabled Car Charger. Patrick got to test it his drive back home from CES. How did running Alexa voice commands off a car charger go in a twenty-two year old mechanical diesel??? Watch the video to find out!

19:37 More CES 2018!!!
Last week we dropped a whole bunch of segments from the CES 2018 show floor, from the best new TVs, to Razer’s Project Linda, giant thumbdrives, LG’s booth, and quite a bit more… but Patrick had a ton more picks, including AMD’s second gen 12nm “Zen+” Ryzen CPUs, Pioneer’s Tacoma crew cab demoing their new Z series and refreshed D series speakers, AstroReality’s 3D printed moon and AR app for exploring it… and you’ll find another 18 or so in the video!

29:43 Gaming Laptop Recco
Sue writes, “I am interested in purchasing a gaming laptop that must be compatible with the Acer Mixed Reality Headset. My budget currently is $1,000, but tell me if that is too low for a great gaming laptop.” $1000 is fine for most gaming, but for VR (or that Mixed Reality headset) it’ll be a stretch. Shannon suggests a budget of $1400, discusses minimum CPU and GPU picks in the video, and options such as Alienware gaming laptops in the video!

33:06 Sentio Superbook vs. Razer Dock
Benny emailed ask@tekthing.com, “Why is the Razer dock gets all this attention?? I know the phone serves as a touchpad, but the Sentio SuperBook is just as close to market.” We talk about the $3 million SuperBook (formerly Andromium) Kickstarter Project (and the Skarp Lazer Razer), and why Razer’s Linda is getting all the press!

37:33 Do Something Analog:
Like the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Team 441, who, Jack writes, made pillowcases for the Children’s Hospital of Colorado so they could learn to sew the bumpers for their competition robot. Jack adds, “Many kids have chronic diseases and spend lots of time in the hospital. A handmade pillowcase is one of the few ways that they can liven up and personalize their room!!! Way to go Team 441!!!
