The Future Is Smart Furniture

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:

Ikea Symfonisk picture frame review: Sonos wifi speaker hidden by artThe Guardian.

When I look around my house, I see a lot of screens and speakers taking up a lot of space. What will happen, in the near future, when the technology is really a part of the furniture? I love what IKEA is doing with Sonos. I think we’re going to be seeing a lot more of this. 

Would you buy an Ikea lamp that had a Sonos speaker in it?

App of the week: Groovepad – create your own music, tunes, beats and more.

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