Tech News and Commentary
Dave and the team discuss the brain’s master clock, rodent drivers, smart speakers as baby monitors and sleep apnea detectors, large scale ATM scams, people’s ability to detect the socioeconomic status of others, Honda’s electric plans for Europe, and more.
Pat asked: “Do you know anything about Air TV? What other options besides cable do I have for TV? Tired of paying the high cable bills that go up each month!”
Pat, Air TV doesn’t quite sound like the solution you’re looking for is what you want to replace is a full cable lineup.
Air TV is just whatever you get with your antenna, but streamable on the Sling app. It won’t get you anything other than local channels, and you can just use a cheap antenna for that.
You may want to look into online paid TV options like Hulu Live, Sling, or YouTube TV, or standalone streaming services like Netflix and HBO Now, but keep in mind that those will add up quickly.
