Every morning at 7:10 am, I am a guest contributor on CHOM 97.7 FM radio broadcasting out of Montreal (home base). It’s not a long segment – about 5 to 10 minutes every week – about everything that is happening in the world of technology and digital media. The good folks at CHOM 97.7 FM are posting these segments weekly to SoundCloud, if you’re interested in hearing more of me blathering away. I’m really excited about this opportunity, because this is the radio station that I grew up on listening to, and it really is a fun treat to be invited to the Mornings Rock with Terry and Heather B. morning show. The segment is called, CTRL ALT Delete with Mitch Joel.
This week we discussed: That the NFL was pitching for Samsung‘s Galaxy Gear smart watch, and what the future of wearable technology will be. While we’re on the subject of watching football on Sunday afternoon, does the remote control have a future? Plus, why you don’t need to ziplock your hotel room remote controls any more thanks to LodgeNet’s app, StayConnect. We also talk about Pocket, Twitter‘s pending IPO and if Instagram will be amazing when they start running ads on it.
