Tim Schwartz & Shaun Preece are in charge of Double Tap Canada this week, as Steven Scott is in quarantine with a bad case of man flu. But the tech must go on, so Shaun kicks off the show with a review of a Smart Power Strip. Not only is he excited by any new gadget, but the prospect of getting more for your money is even more tempting.
Smart Power Strip
Shaun takes a look at the KOI Smart Power Strip, which is sold under the brand name Teckin in Canada, and shows us just what it is, how it works and what it can do. With the ability to, not only control 4 individual power sockets, but also 4 USB ports and all just using a smart speaker or app, is there any reason to buy a single smart plug ever again?
After a discussion around smart homes and smart devices, it’s on to the news. And the rather worrying story of the prospect of a court case regarding the accessibility of Dominos website and app. Should a company be forced to make their online services accessible and if not, what possible implications does that have for us?
Finally, it’s on to the listener feedback. This week we have some recommendations regarding using your smart phone handsfree with apps such as Be My Eyes or Aira. Also, questions about Talkback on Android.
