CES 2017 is over and we're all back home, but before we left Las Vegas, we gathered around the microphone for one of our favorite trade show traditions: the mega cross-site podcast!
It's long, it's rambling, it's occasionally afflicted with electronic noise because somebody's phone was desperately searching for signal (sorry about that), it's jam-packed with discussion of dozens of gadgets — it's the CES 2017 Android Central and Windows Central podcast!

No video for this one.
Can't wait for the next Zac & Dan podcast. This latest one is complete garbage!
I see that I have a lot of skipping around to do. Bless the show notes :)
Like listening a group of drunken men talk about nonsense. Luckily Mr. Mobile rescue the situation.
At 47 mins and these guys are so closed minded!
What the ****? The Mate 9 is the first Kirin processor available in the US!? I'm pretty sure the Honor 8 I bought at Best Buy 4 months ago would beg to differ. Man this network loves to act like they know what they're talking about.
