Podcast: The tech to expect in 2019


Bendable phones, 5G, drones, and the decline of the smartphone. These are just three of the trends to watch out for in 2019 according to the latest episode of BusinessCloud’s ‘Demystifying Tech’ podcast.

The show, which features BusinessCloud editor Chris Maguire, technology journalist Mo Aldalou and host Alistair Hardaker, considers Apple’s recent letter to investors a signal that new phones are less attractive to consumers.

The podcast, which is now in its 16th episode, also features an interview with ‘digital revolution knowledge lawyer’ Catherine Hammon, responsible for keeping international legal practice Osbourne Clarke abreast of the latest tech trends.

Hammon warns that as people and technology become more integrated, more personal data is created, which means data protection will pose greater threats to businesses of all kinds.

The show concludes with predictions about the new product announcements at this year’s CES, the world’s biggest consumer tech event. What new consumer technology could be announced this week?
