Continuing on from last week’s episode of our favourite tech for the year, we focus our attention to our hands and ear-holes. Tech truly surrounds us and penetrates us, if you know what I mean. As we approach Christmas, if you have a spare $500 for your mum, you may want to consider some of our suggestions (#mumtech). Finally we review the predictions we made on 1 January of 2019. Did we get any right? Tune in to find out! As always, we cover all angles using clips from different sources so you get everything you need to know, right here on the Naked Tech Podcast.
Tech had a depressing year in 2017. Perhaps that showed in the number of episodes we did this year. As we look ahead to a more hopeful 2018, we summize the year that was, warts and all, and chat about the trends and memes for 2017. We review our favourite things including movies and apps and discuss how we went in our predictions at the start of the year. Spoiler alert: we sucked! Be sure to listen out for our 2018 predictions, as we set ourselves up for even more disappointment!
