NFTs (non-fungible tokens) have likely been taking over your news feed in the last few weeks, as they certainly have ours. With an almost Gamestop-esque rise recently, we're seeing more and more headlines about digital assets being sold for thousands, if not millions, of dollars. This week, we take a brief moment to go over the fundamentals of NFTs and then chat with Justin Maller, a well-known digital artist and Chief Creative Officer at DeviantArt, to see the other side of the coin and how NFTs could be truly game-changing for digital artists like him.

After a quick, but timely update about Android OS dessert names, Marques and Andrew dive head-first into the weeds surrounding influencer-disclosure for brand promotions. They compare some of their personal experiences to the extremely relaxed rules that television, movies, and traditional media have enjoyed over the years.

This week, we discuss the odd focus issues with the new on-field Super Bowl cameras, the rumors surrounding the Amazon Alexa Command Hub, and a truly crazy four-sided waterfall display Xiaomi smartphone. Then, we discuss the phenomenon of ads on smartphones and how they're rapidly getting worse, as well as a few new Android 12 UI leaks. Finally, we wrap up the show with some news about Audi's new "E-Tron GT" EV and why focusing solely on battery range may be slightly misguided.

Several people asked about our impressive camera shots in the Galaxy S21 review, so we pull back the curtains on how we created our crazy intro and "floating phone" shot. Then, after we finally got our hands on the folding Huawei Mate Xs, we offer our first impressions live and direct! Lastly, we close out the episode with some sweet, sweet Q & A action reading questions from you, our listeners.

We have a ton of 2021 rumors to catch up on as January comes to a close. In typical Waveform fashion, we read some very faint tech rumors and then wildly elaborate on them. The aforementioned rumors include: Tesla Model S/X refreshes, LG and Huawei smartphone deaths, Macbook Pro's resurrection of some old favorites, and Sony's new $2500 smartphone.

Mr. Beast is arguably one of the largest YouTube creators in recent digital history. He literally lives and breathes YouTube and YouTube content strategy. We were lucky enough to spend some time picking his brain about his love of YouTube, the creation of his massively complex videos, and even a few scholarly critiques of our MKBHD tech channel.

Like a lot of things, CES looks slightly different this year. We take a quick look at some of the tech items making their way into the news from the virtual trade show. Then, we discuss our first virtual smartphone event of 2021, the full Samsung Galaxy S21 line, and the final design of the new S21 itself. Finally, we speak with our special guest Kyle Conner, who was previously featured on last week's episode. He currently holds the EV cross-country cannonball record and tells us how he got into EV's and exactly how he planned for the lengthy trip in the Porsche Taycan.

It's our first episode of 2021 and the start of our new weekly episode schedule! We kick it off by taking a look at the Porsche Taycan setting a new electric U.S. cannonball cross country race record, previously held by Tesla. We then cover several forthcoming smartphone rumors before moving on to our crystal ball predictions for the 2021 Smartphone Awards. Happy New Year!

In this, our last Waveform episode of 2020, we take a look at the big end-of-year tech stories like DJI potentially being banned in the US, Elon mentioning that he tried to have Tim Cook acquire Tesla years ago, and explanations for our reasoning behind the 2020 Smartphone Awards and who some of the snubs may have been. Lastly, we do our own 2020 Waveform Awards where we celebrate some of our favorite tech and creators of the year. From our Waveform family to you and yours, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

In this week's episode, we take a look at so-called "luxury iPhones" to see if they're legit or not. Next, we reminisce about the olden days of simple Instagram and their new toned-down app, Instagram Lite. Lastly, we discuss how insect wings are what folding phone companies should strive to be like (for real), before wrapping up the episode with a debate about the age-old question, "Why are Airpods priced so high?"

As we prepare to wrap up the longest year in history, 2020, we discuss several of the latest tech news stories: Apple releases their insanely expensive $500 Airpods Max, Samsung might not include a charging brick with the Galaxy S21, and Bloomberg's Mark Gurman joins us again to talk about the potential of future iPhones being portless!

Today, we dive briefly into Bunny the talking dog and the PS5 launch, before sitting down with Apple's Bob Borchers, VP of Product Marketing, and Tim Millet, VP of Platform Architecture, to talk about the recently-announced Apple Silicon M1 chip. Next, we bring in MKBHD Visual Director, Brandon Havard, to explain the magic behind some of the recent eye-catching MKBHD intro shots.

In this week's episode, we dissect LG's new concept rollable phone patent and preview Apple's upcoming Silicon event. Lastly, we hit up the Twitter mailbag to answer questions from you, our listeners, about anything we may have missed during our busy season. It's a fruitless attempt at playing catch-up with your plethora of questions. Happy Technovember!

The first thing we cover on today's episode is the fact that YOU NEED TO VOTE. Then, we move on to slightly less important things like AMD's new graphics cards and how they compete against NVIDIA's RTX series. Next up is a quick peek at how Amazon bizarrely opens your Motorola Razr Box before sending it to you, followed by a chat about the hype and marketing behind Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X and why the embargoes are a just a tad crazy. Lastly, we play a little game called "What we liked and didn't like about a bunch of the latest smartphones." Did we also mention that YOU NEED TO VOTE?

We're in the deep, beating heart of smartphone season!

Our very special guests this week, Maingear Founder Wallace Santos and Marketing Director Ron Reed, join us to discuss the state of the PC gaming community, especially with the PS5 and Xbox Series X on the horizon.

Today, we have a special bonus episode of Waveform! We recently had an interview with Mark Zuckerberg in our series "Talking Tech" on the MKBHD channel, but we left a bit of it on the cutting room floor. Hence, we decided to upload the full and uncut version of the interview to Waveform to let you hear everything we talked about, in its entirety!

This week, we take a slightly different approach and open the episode with the epic tale of our hectic start to "Techtember". We present a detailed re-telling of Marques' bumpy trip to Arizona for a video shoot with David Blaine and the adversity that followed. From editing mishaps to clandestine overnight shipping strategies, we had to work through quite a bit of craziness to film and upload our Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 unboxing video. So grab a comfortable seat and enjoy a special "Waveform Story Time"!

PC vs laptop - you need to consider how cheap a great PC build is these days and the cost of upgrades is cheap too. most laptops you can't really upgrade anything but maybe storage and RAM. Right now for $1000 you can make a machine that would crush every laptop under $2000.
