It is  Friday again with awesome Tech topics with Adam Oldfield and Bill Kelly on 900 CHML!!! Facebook has a smart speaker that is a little bit creepier than what we’re used to.

This week on Tech Talk on 900 CHML, the following topics will be discussed with Bill Kelly and Adam Oldfield: Skype is going to kill the smart TV app. They will no longer be going to work on development so any of the smart TVs will no longer allow for you to have the video conferencing feature.
