With the holidays behind us, folks who follow what’s happening in technology are turning their attention to the year ahead. Will we see a truly revolutionary new consumer product? Will tech giants continue to struggle? Our tech guru Omar Gallaga says at least one formerly pie-in-the-sky idea could turn into a product in 2019.

What you’ll hear in this segment:

– What happened with last year’s tech pain points, including remote controls and passwords

– Why Apple will still have trouble succeeding in the voice-assistant market

– What Netflix may have planned for sports fans
