‘Tis almost the season to offer gifts large and small for the loved ones in your life. In the podcast, Kevin and I focus mostly on larger gifts, because once you add connectivity the price takes a big jump. We also discuss Black Friday deals.
Vibhu Norby, the CEO of B8ta, is on the show to share some of his gift picks. They range from $3,000 (get two!) to $30. Hopefully we can inspire you if you’re shopping for a tech-friendly family member or friend. Norby also discusses a new way of thinking about retail and what sells in the connected device category.

One thought on “Episode 86: The Internet of Things Podcast gift guide”
Hi, Stacy. I got an Amazon Dot a few weeks ago and love playing with it. But, I cannot for the life of me get it to play the internet of things podcast. When I say “Play the internet of things podcast,” it plays some other podcast vaguely related to the internet of things. Are there magic words that will cause Alexa to play your podcast?
