My Thoughts: You’ll probably want to watch this if you’re interested in technology. Jamie shows a lot of videos that explain what they’re talking about better than I ever could since Jamie often doesn’t mention any brands or models of the things he’s talking about. That being said, there’s not a whole lot of conversation about CES and technology. Lots of boxing talk and car talk towards the end along with talk about Las Vegas and drugs.
