This Week On The TC Gadgets Podcast: Amazon Register, Skully, And Summer Time-Sinks

This week, Amazon announced a Square competitor in the form of the Amazon Local Register, undercutting Square’s transaction fee. Meanwhile, the makers of the Skully smart motorcycle helmet finally opened up the pre-order, setting the Indiegogo record for the fastest funded company to hit $1 million in pre-orders.

But as August permits us a bit too much time for introspection, we also take a deeper look at some of the apps that keep us addicted to our smartphones.

We discuss all this and more on this week’s episode of the TC Gadgets Podcast featuring John Biggs, Matt BurnsJordan Crook, and Darrell Etherington.

Have a good Friday, everybody!
