This Week In Tech: Oct 1 2023

This week due to time constraints I was unable to complete the article. But here’s what I wrote about all the product announcements that happened this week and links to other stories I think were significant:

This week was a busy one as it comes to announcements of new hardware; The Raspberry Pi 5 has finally arrived, boasting a new processor with double the performance and support for dual 4K outputs, all at an affordable price point. Meanwhile, Meta’s Quest 3 is set to revolutionize VR with its Snapdragon XR2 Gen 2 processor, 8GB of RAM, and enhanced display quality, all starting at just $499.99. Google is also making waves with the Fitbit Charge 6, which inherits heart rate sensing tech from the Pixel Watch and expands its activity tracking capabilities, complete with integration for YouTube Music, Google Maps, and Google Wallet, set to launch on October 12th. And for drone enthusiasts, DJI’s Mini 4 Pro offers exceptional portability, high-quality imaging, and intelligent shooting modes, all packed into a lightweight device starting at $759. You can learn more about these announcements in my new podcast Tech Buzz Weekly which is currently a TNS patron exclusive (so I can iron out the kinks).
