I don't know a darn thing about crypto currency. Fortunately, I have a friend who does. His name is Adam B. Levine and he's been podcasting about cryptocurrency for a long time. He runs the CoinDesk podcast network and podcasts on his own crypto show as well. Bottom line, he knows his stuff. Plus we take a look at Apple's new M1 chip and the reviews that dropped this week.

This week, Adam looks at the TCL 10 5G UW, which is exclusive to Verizon. TCL's latest beauty can access the mmWave Verizon network and it comes with an insanely low price tag of just $399. This is a mid range phone packed in a gorgeous package, and we'll give you all the details.  Plus, Adam takes a look at the Zhiyun Smooth X smartphone gimbal. It's a review two-fer!

Adam and Cliff are back recapping the month that was. We had reviews, reviews, reviews, and we talked with Juan Carlos Bagnell about the intersection of politics and technology. We had the Blu G90 Pro, The T-Mobile REVVL 5G, and the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE. It's been a busy month and we're just getting started! Douding Thomas is hosted byAdam Doud - @DeadTechnology Clifton M.

Everything Has Changed

Everything Has Changed

Two phones change everything for Adam.  The LG Wing and the iPhone 12 Pro both defy expectations and smartphone workflow. For better or for worse? Adam has some thoughts on that. Plus we sit down with a company called IMINT to talk about Electronic Image Stabilization and how they make smartphone videos better.

This week, we have our full review of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition. Samsung keeps all the good parts of the S20 line, but cuts a few corners to help reduce the price to a more fan-friendly $699. But does it cut the right corners? That's what we're going to find out in our full review of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE! Links to News of the week available at benefitofthedoud.com Subscribe to the show! Support the show! Read more!

This week, we're taking a look at T-Mobile's own affordable 5G smartphone. For just $400, you can have nationwide 5G on google old Magenta, but before this starts to sound like an ad, there are some compromises. After all, the phone only costs $400. But this phone cuts a lot of right corners in its quest for affordability.  Let's take it for a spin.

The intersection of tech and politics is happening more and more these days as technology becomes a more and more integrated part of our lives. As technology gets better, we need to learn how to use it, what it's allowed for, and what it's decidedly not allowed for.  That's where politicians step in. A lot of them have no idea how this stuff works, but there are some bright stars out there.  From political responsibility to just who the heck knows what they're talking about JCB is here to help!  Of course, don't forget to check out the full interview on Patreon!

Our Blu G90 Pro is in. Can a phone with only 4GB of RAM actually be a gaming phone? You'll have to tune in to hear the specifics, but the answer is, mostly yeah. Blu delivered a lot of power in this phone, but some very important corners were cut. But did Blu make the right call to ship this gaming powerhouse? Find out here!

This month Adam and Cliff take a look at VR, along with a deep look at the Oculus Quest 2. Then we rehash the Pixel 4a review and Adam still doesn't know why he loves this phone. We go a little deeper on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, and finally we wrap things up with a look at graphene-enhanced battery tech. It's a fun listen, so be sure to check it out.

A Tale of Two Tablets

A Tale of Two Tablets

2020-10-0438:001

Lenovo built a pair of tablets that, when docked, turn into smart screens. That's a smart use for technology that often ends up on a shelf in between uses. Taking an Android tablet, and sprinkling in a little Google Assistant or Alexa is a neat idea.  But how's the execution?  That's the real story. Plus we take a deep dive into Google's announcements this week and we have our first giveaway!

Graphene is a miracle product that was supposed to change the world.  We never got that far, but graphene is making major updates to our batteries that could be very exciting very soon.

This week is a big show with not one, not two, but three top stories. First we ask the question, "what is a podcast?" It's a little meta, for sure. Then we take a good look at the Xiaomi Mi Band 5. Plus we have our final thoughts on the LG Velvet 5G and a look at LG of the future. It's a great show, so I hope you'll come along.

But our top story of the week is our interview with Wahid Rezali from Lenovo. Wahid has his finger in a lot of pies over at Lenovo, and isn't afraid to push boundaries beyond your typical consumer products. What drives Lenovo to play at the fringes?

Star Wars and robots go together hand in hand, so it's appropriate that Ian Bernstein, Co-founder of Misty Robotics has experience with both. Ian and I discuss his history from Sphero to BB-8 to Misty II, a versatile little robot who can do basically anything you program it to do, including screen you for COVID-19 in the most adorable way possible. Plus, I share some thoughts on the Surface Duo and wonder if we're making the right comparisons these days.

This week, I've got my old podcast partners Jonathan Feist and Joe Hindy from Android Authority together to chat about the Samsung Unpacked event that happened this week.  Samsung showed us the Note 20, the Note 20 Ultra, the Galaxy Watch 3, the Galaxy Buds Live, the Tab S7 and the Galaxy Z Fold 2. It was a packed unpacked event, and very cringe-worthy, so we're breaking it all down for you! Links to news of the week available at benefitofthedoud.com.

Concept versus reality. That's the theme of this week's podcast.  First, we take a look at the technology I took on vacation as opposed to what I actually used. Then, we look at the evolution of LG's dual screen cases from the LG V50 through the LG Velvet. Is the concept of the dual screen living up to reality?
