We made it to episode 10! Unfortunately, last week was especially quiet for the tech industry; and we were left looking for things to talk about to fill an hour long show.
Pang brought up Acer’s new SuperCare warranty and customer service programme; which was announced alongside Acer’s new line of Swift and Spin premium Ultrabooks. We had quite a bit to say about after service sales and what it means to the final price of a product. But in the end, does extended warranty coverage justify a higher price tag?
One Plus also made headlines with the new One Plus 3T. The new name is quite the tongue twister, but it isn’t quite as mind boggling as the reasoning for the new name. Andrew takes us on a journey of One Plus’ new smartphone and what it means for the company.
Finally, we talk about WhatsApp’s new video calling feature. We say some unflattering things about video calling and Google Hangouts; and then decide that a little more needs to be done.
Tune in to listen to what the team at Lowyat.NET talks about when there really isn’t much going on in the world of tech.
