Welcome to Weekly Roundup, our podcast discussing the latest tech trends, innovation and news from the last few days.
In this week’s edition, Hadlee Simons plays host to Andy Walker and Graham van der Made.
This time we discuss the PS4 Pro’s so-called Boost Mode and how it will affect supported titles. Sticking with Gearburn, we also touch on Ubisoft’s recent Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands beta. We also take a look at the latest Android Wear 2.0 update coming to smartwatches this year.
Android Wear 2.0 will also see the introduction of new smartwatches to South Africa
Moving onto Meme matters, we delve into Twitter’s new anti-harassment measures, Andy and Graham’s experience using UberEATS, as well as some Cape Town-specific news for the food delivery service.
Last but not least, on Ventureburn, we talk Startup Grind’s latest fireside chats.
What are we watching, reading, playing: Andy is currently struggling with review game Nioh. As for what he’s watching — basically anything that isn’t Nioh related.
Graham, on the other hand, is still kicking butt in Yakuza 0 and loving every minute of it (be sure to catch his review right here on Gearburn). He’s also started playing Earthbound which he’s really enjoying as well.
Hadlee is still enjoying No Man’s Sky, he also really seems to be liking it on the PS4 Pro. Hadlee, much like the rest of the team, has been surfing YouTube and has been passing the time with mostly Xbox clips.
