Our latest weekly episode of Trends with Benefits features Dan Gaul, Adrien Warner, Rick Stella and Greg Nibler.

  • Star Wars in the correct order: DT Staff writer Keith Nelson Jr. recently watched 7 of the 8 Star Wars movies for the FIRST TIME. On this, the 40th anniversary of the debut of A New Hope, we take a second to discuss the correct order to watch the films.

  • T-Mobile Digits: An interesting new feature is rolling out for T-Mobile customers, called Digits. It allows one to have multiple phone numbers on one phone, or one phone number on multiple phones, in addition to other features. Is this service something you'd find a use for?

  • AI that recognizes cars: Kuna Systems is a home security firm that just debuted an interesting AI that works with their cameras. It has the ability to recognize and distinguish individual cars, even to the point of calling the police for “problem cars”.

  • E-Bikes: Rick Stella recently went to Palo Alto to test out the newest E-Bikes from Specialized. If you've been hesitant to embrace, or have lack of knowledge about E-Bikes in general, he gives us a great explanation. After hearing it, are you ready to give one a try?

  • Dubai RoboCop: A robotic Police Officer is now officially on duty in the city of Dubai. Created by PAL Robotics, the robot is designed to help the city fight crime and assist citizens. Dubai said it has a goal for robot to comprise up to 25% of it's police personnel by the year 2030!
