As the year winds to a close, I will be posting as I have for the past few years, my big trends of 2018 post. I should have it ready by Thursday or Friday of the coming week. Overall my prediction rate and ultimately how good my predictions are sat around 60%. I have missed on a few technologies that I honestly thought were going to be bigger than they ultimately were. I guess that is part of the prediction game. I try to get it out before New Year’s Eve, that seems only fair to predict in 2017 what 2018 will bring.
I posted yesterday my new review guidelines. I am open to suggestions from readers. I got a suggestion via email to review a technology, but frankly, I am not going to buy an Android phone just to do a review of that technology. Any other suggestions are of course welcomed, as long as I don’t have to spend 500 dollars to do the review. I draw the line at reviews at that cost unless honestly I already need the item being reviewed.
- Tascam Digital Audio recorder
- Sonos One (with Amazon Alexa)
- Keecker Homepod
- Eora 3d scanner
- Trident ROV
All of these reviews pending the items arriving in my hot little hands. I will not waste your time with an unboxing video. I will post more videos of actually using the devices. However, that was something a reader requested. Also, installing the software is another request from a reader. I will start adding those to my YouTube channel and sharing the link to the review blog as well. Lots of changes in my technology blog for next year!
