Tech’s War For Your Wrist And More On Jack 103 FM

Posted by

Your digital media catch-up is right here.

Every Tuesday – for just a few minutes – I join Heather Backman (my old buddy from her days on CHOM FM) on the air at Jack 103 (Rogers Sports & Media) to give a quick blast about the current state of technology, media and Internet culture. We’re calling the segment Tech Tuesday (and we do it in just a few minutes).

What is Tech Tuesday?

If you ever find yourself wondering… What, exactly, is the point of TikTok? How can I make myself look better on a Zoom? Reddit? What’s that about? How do I help my kids be safer online? Who’s the latest creator and streamer that I should be checking out?

You are not alone.

This is what Heather Backman and I discussed this morning over on Jack 103 FM for a couple of minutes:

Tech’s war for your wristAxios and The Verge.

“State of play: Tech giants are rapidly staking claims to different pieces of the next-platform puzzle, involving different visions of the roles watches, earbuds and glasses or goggles will play. Apple has a big lead in smart watches. So far it has tied the Apple Watch heavily to the health market… Right now this is a fight between Facebook, which wants to depend less on hardware providers in the post-smartphone era, and Apple, which aims to dominate whatever product category takes the iPhone‘s place. Google is down, but thanks to Fitbit, not necessarily out.”

What tech comes after the smartphone? Do you think it will be a watch-like device?

Once the segment goes live on Jack 103, I will post it here for you to listen in, learn, share and engage….
