Bitcoin: The incredibly rising value of Bitcoin is causing some significant changes for some companies and what they will accept for payment. Drew Prindle also shares his tale of Bitcoin and what he could have right now.

DT Products of the Year: The staff at Digital Trends had the arduous task of picking what they consider to the best tech products of the year, in a number of different categories. There debates and there were difficult decisions, but the list is now posted on the site. Today, we’ll cover a few of the many products, but you can check out the entire list and detailed articles here.

  • Overall Product of the Year: Nintendo Switch. Bursting back onto the video game scene, this hybrid home/portable console has successfully brought Nintendo back to the forefront.
  • Emerging Tech Product of the Year: Formlabs Fuse 1 3D Printer. You may never actually see one of these in action yourself, but what it signifies tremendous potential for the future of 3D printing.
  • Mobile Product of the Year: iPhone X. This was clearly one of the most anticipated releases in the history of mobile phones and it has lived up to the hype. Despite the $1000 price tag, this phone is a gamechanger.
  • Home Theater Product of the Year: LG C7 OLED Series. With perfect black levels, 4K resolution, HDR support and all the bells and whistles you could ask for, this is the best television of 2017.

iPhone 2018 rumors: With the iPhone X still barely reaching the hands of consumers, the rumors for 2018 are already heating up. Budget versions, larger screen and much more are possibly in the works for the next…iPhone 9? What should it be called?

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, Drew Prindle, Caleb Denison, and Greg Nibler.
