07:27 Cars at CES…
They might be bigger than Big Giant TVs at CES 2017. We talk Chrysler’s Portal (The Minivan for Millennials!), Toyota’s Concept-i and it’s AI buddy, Yui, and more!

13:11 4K TVs…
Quantum Dots Are Everywhere… everything is too thin, Samsung’s QLED has all the color volume, LG’s Super UHD has Technicolor HDR, and Sony’s Bravia 4K OLED has an X1 EXTREME HDR processor. They’re all gorgeous 4K panels… but being so thin (2.3mm for LG’s ‘Wallpaper’ TVs) has some weird side effects. Sony’s new Bravia 4K OLED TV has a really neat trick: the audio COMES FROM THE SCREEN!!!
