Frak That! Ep. 92: ‘CES 2017’

On the eve of Consumer Electronics Show 2017, Randall Kennedy and Joe Wilcox discuss the event that Joe likens to a room of 10,000 screaming kids, each trying to out-yell the other for attention. That’s the media mayhem that has kept him away from the annual tech pilgrimage in Las Vegas since 2008. “You couldn’t drag me there for any amount of money”, he says early in Episode 92.

Among their CES topics: Acer’s $9,000 laptop; the perfect Chromebook for over-weight hoarders; VR porn; drones dropping dead (from short battery life); fido trackers; BlackBerry’s last life; and the great Google privacy scam (you got none). 

The cohosts also talk Twitter—harkening back to the previous episode when Randall’s New Year’s resolution for Donald Trump was to keep tweeting. Already, this week, the President-elect has used Twitter to curb Congressional insanity (that he sees). Then there is the inauguration and Hillary Clinton’s attendance in different role than she expected. Also for the event: “The DC Cannabis Coalition is planning to hand out thousands of joints on Inauguration Day as an act of protest”, Randall explains.

Oh do they have fun with that one—and other topics we won’t tease you with. Just listen and enjoy!
