This week on Future Tech Chat, we will be slowing down a little bit, taking some time to relax. This week has featured a TON of news from Google Inc. (as we discussed in the I/O predictions episode), so we will definitely reflect on what we saw from I/O, and how our predictions fared.
We’ll also be taking a look at some of the biggest news stories of the year from Microsoft, Apple and others, and how they might affect the tech world over the next 6 months. May/June is technology conference season, so there have been quite a few different announcements about new products and features. This week is also a great opportunity to answer a few questions from viewers and talk a little bit about our technology backgrounds. It’s going to be a great episode!
