28 – CES, Netflix Everywhere, App Store Numbers
For our first episode of 2016, we focus mostly on CES and the announcements made there. Jan was there in person, while Aaron followed the news remotely. We discuss the following trends and products, among others: * The rise of USB-C * Cars, technology, and autonomous vehicles * Fitness and wearables – Fitbit Blaze and Withings Thermo * Drones * Virtual and augmented reality * Headphones, including Apple’s reported moves here * 4K and Ultra High Definition plus HDR in TV sets. We also spend a few minutes specifically discussing Netflix’s big international expansion news from CES, including Jan’s post from this week about the possible financial implications. Lastly, we discuss the new App Store numbers Apple released this week and what they might mean. And, as always, we wrap up with our Weekly Pick, a product recommendation. As usual, lots of relevant links and other information are available on the website at podcast.beyonddevic.es.
