What happens when your phone number becomes a portable feature? That’s one of the benefits of T-Mobile’s new DIGITS service. But does it really work? We try it out live on this episode of Geared Up, our consumer technology podcast and video show.
Meanwhile, Comcast rolled out its gigabit internet service in Seattle and other cities this week, bringing the promise of blazing fast downloads, but at a price of nearly $160 a month unless you’re willing to sign up for a one-year promotion that brings it down to $110. Andru Edwards and I debate the pros and cons, including the relatively meager 35 Mbps upload speed and the potentially high cost of switching to a modem that supports the service.
Plus, we preview the new Essential phone and smart speaker from Android creator Andy Rubin.
