Trends with Benefits: Google calls out Apple, Nike delivers us Back to the Future


Google came out swinging at it’s Made by Google Event on Tuesday, with Pixel phones to take on both Apple and Samsung, Google Home to take on Amazon’s Alexa, and Daydream to shake up the VR market. We’ll give you a full recap of what went down and also what you can look forward to from the new Google ecosystem.

Nike has finally announced that the Marty McFly-based Mag, self-lacing sneakers have been produced! You’ll need to win a raffle to get a pair of these high-tech shoes on your feet, but it’s worth the entry. What kind of other movie tech would you like to see come to fruition?

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.

At 2:45 pm Pacific we answer your questions live.
