The comfortable Airbnb with the log burning in the fireplace is gone, as are the dry sandwiches and free coffee of the press room. We’re back in our respective cities following the crazy hallway podcasting days of CES 2016, most of us wiser, all of us older, and at least one of us with a big ‘ole post-Vegas beard. And now that you’re caught up with where we’re sitting … we’re gonna catch you up with what’s new in mobile tech.

Sweet, sweet news on smartphones, tablets, wearables and VR headsets –plus your listener mail– awaits on episode 183 of the Pocketnow Weekly! Watch the video broadcast from 2:00pm Eastern on January 14 (click here for your local time), or check out the high-quality audio version when it lands afterwards. And don’t forget to shoot your listener mail to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air!
