    I had a very difficult time watching the video, in fact I didn't even finish watching because the lighting was so low. I couldn't see the products. Please make these videos lighter. Thank you in advance.

    My least favorite gadget that came out in 2018 was definitely the RED hydrogen 1. Those guys were stupid to release a phone that only had features nobody wanted.

    I remembered that duck and the video about it that you guys make. The video was very heartwarming and touching. Most of all, it gives me hope, that through all these stuffs happening this year that feels just invested to make money, little stuffs like this still happens.

    I underestimated how much I would like the Google Home Hub. I do wish the speaker was more comparable in quality to the original Google Home, but the photos of my family (and recently passed dog) make my heart swell. It really is amazing how they look like printed photos in a frame, and your clip in the video is the first I have seen with an actual comparison (thanks for that). I bought 2 more of these at the $99 Black Friday sale price.

    A7 III because it has exposure dial? Come on Stefan .. out of all you choose the most mundane thing that most cameras have?

    My 1000xm3 can't be charged with any usb-c charger, which is almost more frustrating than having a different port. My laptop charger won't charge them, my phone charger won't charge them, only my iPad charger can charge them for some reason.

    My favourite gadgets were my HomePods (I know all the android fans hate them) but like the Apple Watch have gotten so much better over time. Now all of my commands are answered, and my HomeKit enabled products all work in harmony. I don’t even need to mention the sound quality. One HomePod blows two sonos ones out of the water and having two HomePods is a godsend. Yeah I know Siri can’t tell you the exact answer to one specific question like google assistant can. But I don’t need an assistant for that I need it to manage my home, sort through my music and maybe call and message some people so for me it’s perfect.

      Courtney Moore I have them in stereo, well worth it.

    • Courtney Moore
      Courtney Moore 9 months ago

      Max Nevins YES! Mine too! I got my HomePod about a month ago and I wish I got it earlier! But still glad I got it regardless. It’s the best thing I definitely purchased this year. Also, your 2nd HomePod ... is it stereo paired or do you have it in a separate space? I’m thinking of purchasing another as well.
