In this episode:
geeks like we are, our lives pretty much revolve around technology.
Or maybe technology revolves around our lives. This week, we
discuss what we’re using day to day and how it makes our lives both
easier and more difficult at times. Some of it, you’d probably
guess (iPhones, Macbooks, gaming consoles), but there are some neat
ones, we think you’ll enjoy hearing about and looking
- Because we do use technology so much, the idea
of disconnect or disengaging from technology has a lot of appeal to
some people (Beej), while others tend to just shift their usage to
maintain a normal, adult lifestyle (Void). It all depends on your
personalities, and we discuss strategies that work for us so that
you can see some healthy, real-world ways you may be able to adopt
into your own routines.
then there’s the awesome technology that you think you’re gonna use
a ton, but instead, it just sits on a shelf, all alone and
abandoned. We talk about purchases that should have been awesome,
but totally fell short of expectations. Kind of like the Vive for
Void (though it’s still awesome tech), and the New 3DS for Beej
(which was switched for a PS Vita).
there’s always speculation about what tech is on it’s way. We talk
about the stuff we’re particularly excited for. Like the
honest-to-goodness iPhone upgrade for the 10th anniversary,
the newly announced
Nintendo Switch (formerly the NX), self-driving cars, augmented reality,
nanotechnology, and space colonization. Give us a shout and tell us
what you’re looking for!
