SyrupCast 24: The CESpool

News is thin this week, but it doesn't stop us from chatting up a winter storm.

 

Timestamps:

[Start - 13:05] YotaPhone 2 is one of the most interesting phones of the year, and a good representative of hardware innovation at a time when smartphones are becoming increasingly commoditized.

[13:05 - 24:00 ] The Galaxy Note Edge, Sonim XP7 and other devices are also really fascinating in their own ways, and prove that there is a market for more niche products, however expensive they may be.

[24:00 - 29:00] Xiaomi may be releasing its first North American-bound phone at CES this year, but is North America ready for China's rising star?

[29:00 - 37:00] Lenovo's new Yoga Tablet 2 Pro is a beast of a machine, but shows how far the manufacturer has come in such a short time. We're reviewing the AshTab right now -- does it hold up in testing?

[37:00 - 42:00] Android 5.0.1 is slowly rolling out to select Nexus devices. Why can't we have nice things, NOW?!

[42:00 - 55:00] CES is quickly approaching. We're gearing up to take it on, but there's a method to our madness, and it involves Snapchat.

[55:00 - end] Something something Microsoft. Something something Office 365.
