iPhone at 10 years and the iPhone 8: It’s been 10 years since Apple unleashed the iPhone upon the world and we’ll take a quick look back at where we’ve come and what it’s meant. We’ll also take a look at the latest concept for the iPhone 8 and debate whether Apple is still number one in groundbreaking mobile technology.
Would you Livestream your life for $200?: CamSoda is currently an adult webcam service, but they are looking to branch out into more ordinary live streaming. Their new service will be called LifeStream. They will pay participants $200 a month and cover their internet bill, in exchange for broadcasting their home life 24 hours a day, to anonymous viewers. Would you do it?
Using lasers to get rid of mosquitoes: If you’re one of those people that gets bit by mosquitoes constantly (I am) then you’ll be excited about Seattle-based Intellectual Ventures Lab and their new product. It’s called the Photonic Fence and it’s able to detect mosquitoes up to 100 meters away and zap them out of the air with lasers.
SNES Classic: Announced earlier this week to follow up the NES Classic, Nintendo has a new system coming out this fall. The Super Nintendo Classic is similar and will feature the never before released Star Fox 2.

Each week, we gather a round table of tech experts from the Digital Trends staff, along with the occasional celebrity guest, to discuss all things tech. Topics range from the big tech stories of the week to predicting the future, all while maintaining a somewhat civil decorum.

Throughout the show we answer your questions.

This week’s episode features Rick Stella, Adrien Warner, Caleb Denison and Greg Nibler.
