What’s New, In the News
Main Discussion On Today’s Episode
The team sat down and discussed CES 2021 and all the announcements that matter. There were the usual announcements by Asus and HP, but this year, there was a great deal announced that is relevant to blind and visually-impaired consumers, and those with hearing loss, as well as other disabilities.
For our UK listeners, Marco demonstrates on a Samsung S10+ BBC Sport and BBC Sounds, two offerings that are very popular for both sports fans and for those who want to hear all of the various BBC radio offerings.
Marco talks about the Trade Up for Samsung app on Google Play and is thoroughly disappointed with the process Samsung puts Australian users through in order to purchase the new Samsung S21 offerings and how inaccessible the Samsung app is.
