The holidays are over and the guys are – once again – back at the tech-talk-game. Some of the topics this week:
Cheap and Useful? A website promising links to “cheap and useful stuff under $25”. It may or may not actually be useful, but it certainly is cheap! Decide for yourself at http://www.cheapanduseful.com/
Inside Facebook’s Prineville, OR data center. Some amazing stats and also where your old, unused Facebook data goes to die – in cold storage.
The wearables market didn’t do nearly as well in 2016 as analysts predicted, but Jeff’s still bullish on his Apple Watch and pines for the Apple Watch Series 2 edition. What say you, listener? Are wearables hot or overrated in 2017?

It doesn’t seem to be stopping people from ordering them, though – there’s at least a 6-week wait on Apple’s online store.
Todd *highly* recommends checking out The IT Crowd. Both he and Jacob are late to the party, watching the show, but if you haven’t seen it, check out this clip and then give it a look on Netflix (or YouTube if you’re a glutton for bad quality videos).
