CES 2016 - Tech Weekly podcast

theguardian.com — This week Las Vegas's usual parade of gamblers, newly-weds and Elvis tribute acts were joined by the biggest gathering of tech companies on the planet - 3200 of them. They're all there for CES 2016, with everything from smart bras to hoverboards vying for the attention of the 170,000 delegates who flock there from all over the world.

CES is the event to get every brain storming … but where will it lead?

theguardian.com — I love a remote mountain cabin perhaps slightly more than the next person, so imagine, if you will, the opposite of that.

Is there an app for that? In San Francisco, the answer is often no

theguardian.com — It's something of a running joke in San Francisco that there are so many startups designed to meet the needs of twentysomething, freshly dropped out of college wannabe startups: food delivery to your door (SpoonRocket, DoorDash, Instacart), laundry delivery to your door (Rinse, Sudzee, Instawash), marijuana to your door (Eaze, MediThrive, the Green Cross), car parking from your door (Luxe, ZIRX).
