Holiday Tech Talks 2017 -- Smart Home for the Holidays

It's Holiday Tech season again -- And this year I'm focusing on the "Smart Home" -- including using wireless speakers to jingle bells around the house, digital assistants to remotely deck the hall lights, and wireless cameras to record video of any late-night visitors that come down the chimney with a bound.

However, you better watch out -- these devices can see you when you're sleeping, and know when you're awake. So you do need to think about whether they are bad or good -- whether watching you in the living room, or listening in the bedroom, or conversing in the kid's room.

So come on over the river and through the woods to one of my local talks, to check out this year's winter wonderland of tech gadgets in action, so you can make your own list of what's naughty or nice:
