Trends With Benefits


Jul 14, 2017

DT Car Awards: The Digital Trends Car Awards are out! Every year, DT goes over all of the years releases, ranking them in various categories. Holly was with the team on site and let's us know how the process works. We also ask the question; What is your dream car?

Facebook/Oculus VR for the masses?: One of the biggest drawbacks when it comes to high-end Virtual Reality is the price point. From a cutting edge PC, to $400 for an Oculus Rift headset, it's an expensive buy-in. Facebook has now announced they are planning a standalone, wireless headset for $200, to debut next year. Is a $200 price point low enough for you to make the jump to VR?

Apple's ARKit: The implementation of Augmented Reality has been a goal for tech companies for a long time. The Google Glass made the first mass attempt, but now Apple may be preparing to bring AR mainstream. The ARKit will allow many different companies the opportunity to design more applications for the technology.

Samsung debuts 33.8 ft LED movie screen: The first ever High Dynamic Range, Cinema LED Screen has been installed in Korea. At 33.8 feet with all of the coloring features of a regular television, this could revolutionize the movie-going experience. How much would you be willing to pay for a ticket though?

Net Neutrality and what it means so you: We round out this show with a quick explanation and discussion regarding Net Neutrality. If you are reading this, the impending rollback of Net Neutrality does matter to you. 

Each week, we gather a round table of tech experts from the Digital Trends staff, along with the occasional celebrity guest, to discuss all things tech. Topics range from the big tech stories of the week to predicting the future, all while maintaining a somewhat civil decorum. Throughout the show we answer your questions.

This week's episode features Holly Smith, Adrien Warner, Caleb Denison and Greg Nibler.

Please subscribe and share Trends with Benefits and send in your questions to podcast@digitaltrends.com. We also broadcast the show live on YouTube every Thursday at 2:30 p.m. Pacific.
