Our topics this week:

  • Uber's California woes and Waymo/Honda: Uber has decided to go the legal route with their California tests and seek the actual permits needed. Waymo is rumored to be partnering with Honda to bring their autonomous project onto the streets. Are you ready for the self-driving car revolution?


  • LG Factory Tour: DT's Caleb Denison and Jeremy Kaplan went behind-the-scenes at LG's Headquarters in South Korea and the verdict's incredible. Caleb will let you know what he saw and what it may mean for CES 2017.

  • iPhone 8 and the OLED display shortage: Another week and another iPhone 8 rumor. This time it has to do with the apparent lack of OLED screens available. However, what kind of upgrade would it actually take for you to consider buying a new iPhone?


  • Revenge on a Phone Thief: A Phone Thief in China received swift justice this past week. A Truck Driver had it swiped, but was able to track down the perpetrator and kick him of his scooter, Double Dragon-style!
