Weekend of December 6, 2019 – Hour 3

Tech News and Commentary

Dave and the team discuss T-Mobile’s new 5G network, Facebook’s AI chatbot, an app that turns routers off when they’re not needed, a Russian software requirement, mini-LED displays, Google’s Focus app, Wyze’s smart lock, and more.



Tom in Erie, Pennsylvania listens to the podcast and asked: “I was wondering about these new 8K TVs. Is this even something worth considering? I haven’t even had my 4K TV very long and I even went OLED. I’m one to adopt early when I can afford it, but it seems like this is a little ridiculous at this point since I don’t know that there’s any content yet. Correct me if I’m wrong on that.”

Tom, there’s probably no reason for anyone to get one any time soon and there’s even less reason for you to get one if you went with an OLED 4K set. Those are not cheap. Just remember that when 1080p and 4K came out, for a long time all you could watch in those definitions were flowers swaying softly in the wind and some pretty mountains.

8K probably won’t be any different. Also keep in mind the requirements of streaming at those definitions if you hear about any 8K streaming services (we haven’t heard of any yet). You may need to pay more for internet if your connection is not already pretty fast.

For the time being, you may be better off sticking with your OLED set and waiting for the price 8K to settle and drop and for more content to be available. As it is, not everything is even available in 4K today. Apparently, we were all pretty pleased with 1080p and haven’t been in a rush to demand anything better.
