We came. We saw. We touched a lot of gadgets. This week was the annual CES, one of the worldâ€™s largest consumer electronics show, and WIREDâ€™s team was on the ground covering all of the top tech trends to emerge from the show. In this weekâ€™s episode of the Gadget Lab podcast, Mike, Arielle, and Lauren talk about CESâ€™s big security #fail, what all of these connected gadgets mean for the future of healthcare, and robots. Lots of robots.
Later in the episode, Arielle talks to Jen Wong, the chief operating officer of Reddit, about the companyâ€™s â€œgrowing upâ€� moment and how it plans to monetize its users.
Show notes: Check out our best of CES list when youâ€™ve finished listening to the pod. Our CES reporting goes beyond gadgets, as well: We have stories on how insidious logging your childâ€™s data has become, why you should ignore the 5G hype (for now), and how womenâ€™s sexuality is apparently still taboo at CES.
Recommendations this week: Arielle recommends getting a Yubikey for all your 2FA needs; Mike recommends the Mui wooden smart home panel (when it ships); Lauren recommends checking out Google Assistant on Sonos, and, if you happen to be a hotel concierge, looking into Googleâ€™s new Interpreter Mode.
